Optimal lower bounds for universal relation, and for samplers and finding duplicates in streams

September 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
MIT, E18-304 + Google Map

Abstract: Consider the following problem: we monitor a sequence of edgeinsertions and deletions in a graph on n vertices, so there are N = (n choose 2) possible edges (e.g. monitoring a stream of friend accepts/removals on Facebook). At any point someone may say "query()", at which point must output a random edge that exists in the graph at that time from a distribution that is statistically close to uniform.  More specifically, with probability p our edge should come from a distribution close to uniform,…

Inference in dynamical systems and the geometry of learning group actions

October 20 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
MIT, E18-304 + Google Map

Abstract: We examine consistency of the Gibbs posterior for dynamical systems using a classical idea in dynamical systems called the thermodynamic formalism in tracking dynamical systems. We state a variation formulation under which there is a unique posterior distribution of parameters as well as hidden states using using classic ideas from dynamical systems such as pressure and joinings. We use an example of consistency of hidden Markov with infinite lags as an application of our theory. We develop a geometric framework that…

Challenges in Developing Learning Algorithms to Personalize Treatment in Real Time

December 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
MIT, E18-304 + Google Map

Abstract: A formidable challenge in designing sequential treatments is to  determine when and in which context it is best to deliver treatments.  Consider treatment for individuals struggling with chronic health conditions.  Operationally designing the sequential treatments involves the construction of decision rules that input current context of an individual and output a recommended treatment.   That is, the treatment is adapted to the individual's context; the context may include  current health status, current level of social support and current level of adherence…
