Trading in financial markets is a data-driven affair, and as such, it requires applications that can efficiently filter, transform and present data to users in real time.

But there's a difficult problem at the heart of building such applications: finding a way of expressing the necessary transformations of the data in a way that is simultaneously easy to understand and efficient to execute over large streams of data.

Electronic exchanges play an important role in the world’s financial system, acting as focal points where actors from across the world meet to trade with each other.

But building an exchange is a difficult technical challenge, requiring high transaction rates, low, deterministic response times, and serious reliability.

Repairable secret sharing schemes are secret sharing schemes where, without the original dealer who distributed the shares, the participants can combine information from their shares to perform a computation which reconstructs a share for a participant who has lost their share.

In this talk I will look at geometric graph representations from the perspective of three issues: the algorithmic complexity of finding a representation; the bit complexity of the representation; and whether there is a morph between any two combinatorially equivalent representations.

A flipped classroom moves the traditional lecture component of teaching outside the classroom, so that it can be replaced with active learning during class time. 

In this talk, I present a brief overview of flipped classrooms, followed by a discussion of the details of its implementation for two lectures during the Spring 2018 offering of ACTSC 331. Students’ responses to the technique are also provided in the form of data from anonymous post-activity surveys.

The next Waterloo-local ACM-style programming contest will be held on Sunday, September 30 in MC 3003.

All members of the University of Waterloo community are invited to try their programming skill in Racket, C, C++, Java, Pascal, Python, or Scala.

Friday, September 28, 2018 — 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM EDT

Join us

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.
