Weekly Seminar Series: “Learning from Playing Games”

25 April 2018 - 25 April 2018

ABSTRACT: Many baby animals play to understand the world. From this evidence, some psychologists and pedagogists have proposed “gamification” as a technique for better learning… With inconclusive results. Here, Prof. Figueiras proposes a different perspective: To learn from (consciously) playing different kinds of (singular and collective, mainly) games, and even to learn from players. Playing [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Binary Re-balance via Likelihood Ratio Invariance”

25 April 2018 - 25 April 2018

ABSTRACT: Imbalanced classification problems are those in which populations and (mis)classification costs are very different. They are pervasive and important in many real-world application fields, from Health to Security, including Economy, Industry, Business, and Social Media, to cite just a few. Unfortunately, the powerful discriminative machines seriously fail when applied to these problems –just as [...]

Weekly Seminar: “Two ways you did not know mobile networks could be useful”

04 April 2018 - 04 April 2018

ABSTRACT: Mobile networks provide support to a variety of communication-based services that are steadily changing our lives. However, they are also pervasive infrastructures that can be used in unconventional ways unrelated to communication. Specifically, mobile networks can be seen as large-scale remote sensing platform capable of providing fine-grained information about a large (and increasing) fraction [...]
