UFII Fellows Journal Club Virtual Seminar – Dr. Maggie Hantak

April 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

UFII Fellows Journal Club Virtual Seminar Series "Computer vision for assessing species color pattern variation from web-based community science images" by Dr. Maggie Hantak Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Florida Museum of Natural History Thursday, April 1, 2021 ABSTRACT: Color pattern is an easily observable biological trait, and with bold patterns, bright colors, and variability in species-specific phenotypes, much attention is given to ‘showy’ species by professional scientists and amateur naturalists alike. Within a single species, color pattern variation (color polymorphism)…

AI Advances and Applications Virtual Seminar – Dr. Hongcheng Liu

April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

AI Advances and Applications Virtual Seminar Series “A Dimension-Insensitive Stochastic First-Order Method for High-Dimensional Optimization in Training Deep Neural Networks" by Dr. Hongcheng Liu Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering Wednesday, April 14, 2021 ABSTRACT: One of the most widely applied paradigms for training deep neural networks is the stochastic first-order method (S-FOM). While deterministic first-order methods have been mostly recognized to be dimension-free, many S-FOMs, such as the stochastic gradient descent (SGD), incur complexities that…

UFII Fellows Journal Club Virtual Seminar –Yi Han

April 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

UFII Fellows Journal Club Virtual Seminar Series "Machine learning-based probabilistic forecasting: a case study on urban water demand" by Yi Han Ph.D. student in the Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department Thursday, April 15, 2021 ABSTRACT: Quality forecasts of urban water demand are critical to effective water resource management. Machine learning techniques have been widely adopted to provide accurate deterministic predictions, but have less emphasis on quantifying prediction uncertainties. This study evaluates an array of machine learning-based uncertainty quantification techniques on…
