GraphXD Seminar: Vector Representations of Graphs and the Maximum Cut Problem

Seminar | February 26 | 4-5:30 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall

David P. Williamson, Operations Research and Information Engineering, Cornell University

Berkeley Institute for Data Science

In this talk, I will look at a classical problem from graph theory of finding a large cut in a graph. We’ll start with a 1967 result of Erdős that showed that picking a random partition of the graph finds a cut that is at least half the largest possible cut. We’ll then describe a result due to Goemans and myself from 1995 that shows that by representing the graph as a set of vectors, one per...   More >

Spatial Data Science: Mapping for Impact: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science

Lecture | February 27 | 4-5 p.m. | 190 Doe Library

Maggi Kelly

Berkeley Institute for Data Science

Spatial data collection, analysis and visualization has changed dramatically in the last decade. We now have, for example, high spatial and temporal resolution imagery, integrated smart phones as data collectors, and cloud-based analytical platforms to work with. Collectively, these developments make up our 21st century mapping toolkit that is in increasing demand to address contemporary...   More >

Equity and the Environment: What’s the connection?: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science

Lecture | April 24 | 4-5 p.m. | 190 Doe Library

Rachel Morello-Frosch

Berkeley Institute for Data Science

Featuring Professor Rachel Morello-Frosch, from Environmental Science, Policy, and Management Department and the School of Public Health

Emerging research indicates that more unequal societies have more polluted and degraded environments, perhaps also helping to explain why more unequal societies are often less healthy. A lack of “environmental justice”—that is, a situation in which people of...   More >
