On Friday, September 28 we will launch the new Cybersecurity and Privacy Institute.

The Institute brings together under one umbrella Waterloo’s 40 security researchers from across the University. These renowned experts are collaborating to uncover new approaches to security and privacy while also partnering with corporations and government to advance the application and implementation of cybersecurity and privacy technologies.

The history of artificial intelligence (AI) contains several ebbs and flows and is marked by many colorful personalities. We review major milestones in the development of machine learning, starting from principal component analysis to deep networks, and point to a multitude of pivotal developments that have strongly contributed to drawing the historical path of AI.

Neurobiologically-plausible learning algorithms for recurrent neural networks that can perform supervised learning are a neglected area of study. Equilibrium propagation is a recent synthesis of several ideas in biological and artificial neural network research that uses a continuous-time, energy-based neural model with a local learning rule. However, despite dealing with recurrent networks, equilibrium propagation has only been applied to discriminative categorization tasks.

We introduce a Monte Carlo randomized algorithm for computing the characteristic polynomial of a rank 2 Drinfeld module than runs in $O(n^2 \log n \log \log n \log q)$ field operations. We also introduce a deterministic algorithm that runs in $O(n^{2.6258} \log n + n^2 \log n \log log n \log q)$ field operations. Both approaches are a significant improvement over the current literature.

The David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science invites all its graduate students, faculty and staff to the annual Computer Science BBQ on Thursday September 13, 2018.

The BBQ will be held on the Village 1 Green. The area does not have tables or chairs, so don’t forget to bring lawn chairs and picnic blankets.

Smart water meters have been installed across Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, to measure the water consumption of households in the area. Using this water consumption data, we develop machine learning and deep learning models to predict daily water consumption for existing multi-family residences. We also present a new methodology for predicting the water consumption of new housing developments.
