This tutorial is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students with little experience using version control and source code repositories. Git is a modern distributed version-control system that allows developers to easily keep track of their work. Along with the power and convenience of Git, I will showcase GitHub, a website that hosts Git projects. GitHub pushes for a social approach to sharing code as well as forking and creating new projects based on existing ones. For this tutorial I will demo a small Python-based development project using Git and GitHub.

Lathon 3D Printer: From Idea to Startup

Abstract: 3D printing has created the new market of Desktop Manufacturing and with many open source tools the cost to enter into the marketplace has never been cheaper. This presentation explains the product development cycle through the eyes of a Maker and formally trained engineer.

Speaker's Bio: 
Being interested in how nature works, I studied Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering from the University of California Davis and graduated in 2013. During a co-op I worked at XCOR Aerospace testing their Lynx main stage rocket engines which gave me the startup bug. Currently I am in graduate school at Georgia Institute of Technology working in the Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory. My plan is to enter the desktop manufacturing business though my company Lathon Technologies.

Mobile computing has been a major trend for the past a few years. In this talk, we will take an overview of web site design and application development for mobile devices and discuss key issues of adapting to this change. Topics include choices of mobile application development and delivery, basic principles and best practices of mobile friendly web sites and web applications, and major tools and frameworks.

Speaker's Bio: 
Dr. Guangzhi Zheng is an Assistant Professor of Information Technology at the Southern Polytechnic State University. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Computer Information System from Georgia State University in 2009. Dr. Zheng is interested in web applications, business intelligence, data visualization, information seeking, information systems, and design science research in information systems and technologies. Dr. Zheng is a member of ACM SIGITE (Special Interest Group on Information Technology Education) and AIS SIGEd (Association of Information Systems Special Interest Group on Education)

Automatically Generating Biomedical Hypotheses from MedLine

Speaker: 
Dr. Ying Xie
Affiliation: 
KSU
Time: 
Thursday, January 23, 2014 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Location:

Computational approaches to generate hypotheses from biomedical literature have been studied intensively in recent years. Nevertheless, it still remains a challenge to automatically discover novel, cross-silo biomedical hypotheses from large-scale literature repositories. In order to address this challenge, we first model a biomedical literature repository as a comprehensive network of biomedical concepts and formulate hypotheses generation as a process of link discovery on the concept network.
Speaker's Bio: 
Dr. Ying Xie is an Associate Professor of Computer Science and the director of the MSCS program at the Kennesaw State University. His research interests include big data, cloud computing, bioinformatics, healthcare informatics and computational intelligence. His research was sponsored by a couple of US companies and the National Science Foundation (NSF). He holds one US patent on biomedical text mining techniques as co-inventor, and one pending patent on novel social network system. He has been involved in organizing several international conferences and workshops in data mining and granular computing. He was an Invited Speaker at the 2008 IEEE international conference on granular computing. One of the recent research projects he participated on biomedical text mining, entitled "Hypotheses generation as supervised link discovery with automated class labeling on large-scale biomedical concept networks", was published in BMC Genomics.
