The Union of Intersections (UoI) Method for Interpretable Data-Driven Discovery and Prediction: Data Science Lecture Series
Lecture | February 17 | 1:10-2:30 p.m. | 190 Doe Library
This talk will introduce the core concepts of UoI, summarize theoretical results on its properties, and demonstrate its superiority for linear regression, classification, random forests, and non-negative matrix factorizations. These results suggest UoI could improve interpretation and prediction in data-driven discovery across scientific fields.
Bending the Energy, Environmental, and Safety Curves Through Transportation Automation and Electrification
Lecture | February 17 | 4-5 p.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building
Costa Samaras, Carnegie Mellon
Abstract: The combination of vehicle automation and electrification has the potential to fundamentally change the transportation sector. Vehicle crashes, traffic congestion, air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, and other negative externalities associated with driving could significantly diminish. However, travel may increase with these vehicles, pollution could be... More >
