The visual complexity of a graph drawing is defined as the number of geometric objects needed to represent all its edges. In particular, one object may represent multiple edges, e.g., one needs only one line segment to draw two collinear incident edges.

The wavelet transform has seen success when incorporated into neural network architectures, such as in wavelet scattering networks. More recently, it has been shown that the dual-tree complex wavelet transform can provide better representations than the standard transform.

We describe three versions of TwitSong, a system that generates poetry based on the news. TwitSong is designed to make aesthetic decisions about potential lines of poetry and, in the third version, to edit its own work. We describe how the system was developed, how it performs in user studies, and why this type of computer-generated poetry still has a long way to go.

The fundamental problem of additive number theory is to determine whether there exists an integer m such that every nonnegative integer (resp., every sufficiently large nonnegative integer) is the sum of at most m elements of S. If so, we call S an additive basis of order m (resp., an asymptotic additive basis of order m). If such an m exists, we also want to find the smallest such m.

Dan Berry weaves the twin peaks of (1) his life in computing, programming, programming languages, software engineering, electronic publishing, and requirements engineering with (2) the almost concurrent development of programming languages, software engineering, and requirements engineering.

Data collected from new sources such as sensors and smart devices is large, fast, and often complex. There is a universal wish to perform multidimensional OLAP-style analytics on such data, i.e., to turn it into “Big Multidimensional Data.” Supporting this is a multi-stage journey, requiring new tools and systems, and forming a new, extended data cycle with models as a key concept. We will look at three specifics steps in this data cycle.

Waterloo empowers entrepreneurs to go beyond.

Entrepreneurs are natural problem solvers. Beyond creating companies that bring innovative and world-changing ideas to the global market place, entrepreneurs are increasingly acting as community builders, industry change agents, and global disruptors.

Find out why.

Matthew Finkel, The Tor Project

There are hundreds of millions of new "smart" mobile device users every year, but the mobile ecosystem and infrastructure are designed and built for optimizing convenience, not protecting the privacy of the user. From a design flaw in the Internet Protocol to an abundence of physical sensors, a mobile device may tell a third-party more information than the user intended or wanted.

​Privacy Enhancing Technology communities rely on the research community for help designing and validating protocols, finding potential attack vectors, and applying new technological innovations to existing protocols. However, while the research community has made significant progress studying projects such as Tor, the number of research outcomes that have actually been incorporated into privacy enhancing technologies such as The Tor Project is lower than the number of feasible and useful research outcomes.

Sum-product networks have recently emerged as an attractive representation due to their dual view as a special type of deep neural network with clear semantics and a special type of probabilistic graphical model for which inference is always tractable. Those properties follow from some conditions (i.e., completeness and decomposability) that must be respected by the structure of the network.
