In this interactive talk we will discuss how icons are used as part of the user’s journey from product to marketing: how they are created, their purpose, and how you can give your users the best possible experience by learning to use them well. We will dig into SVG, Less/Sass, font glyphs and where to find them, color theory as it relates to user experience, and real-world examples of good and bad use of icons in product design.

Emerging Mobile Cyber-Physical Systems

Speaker: 
Dr. Ashwin Ashok
Affiliation: 
Georgia State University, Department of Computer Science
Time: 
Thursday, September 1, 2016 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Location: 
Student Center East, room 217
Fall
2016

In this talk, I will discuss how mobile technologies are inspiring the emergence of novel cyber-physical systems, ranging from mobile networking to vehicular to health and medicine.

Speaker's Bio: 

Ashwin Ashok is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at GSU, where he leads research on mobile systems and the Internet of Things. Prior to this he was a postdoctoral research associate in ECE at Carnegie Mellon University under the mentorship of Professor Peter Steenkiste (CMU) in collaboration with Dr. Fan Bai (GM Research). While affiliated with the CMU-GM Continuous and Autonomous Driving Collaborative Research Lab (CRL) at CMU he developed cloud-computing systems for vehicular applications. Ashwin completed his Ph.D. in October 2014 at the Wireless Information Network Lab (WINLAB) at Rutgers University, where he worked under the guidance of Marco Gruteser, Narayan Mandayam, and Kristin Dana. His doctoral thesis developed a novel interdisciplinary concept called visual MIMO that explores the use of cameras and other optical arrays as receivers in a communication system. Ashwin interned at Qualcomm (NJ) for a summer working on Qualcomm’s Lumicast technology for visible light communication-based indoor positioning. Ashwin is an experimentalist and has keen interests in system design and prototyping. He loves tinkering with circuits, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi and plays cricket and badminton in his leisure

Bayesian Inference and Applications

Speaker: 
Dr.Jing Zhang
Affiliation: 
GSU Dept of Mathematics
Time: 
Friday, April 8, 2016 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
Location: 
25 Park Place, Suite 755
Spring
2016

In this talk I will discuss Bayesian inference and some of its recent well-known applications. I will start with several quotes from New Scientist and Nature about Bayesian inference in modern high-tech science (machine learning, artificial intelligence), and then show some famous Bayesian applications, including Bayesian prediction of the U.S. elections of 2008 and 2012, and IBM’s Using Big Data to Invent Creative Recipes. Then I will go into detail about a very simple example of Bayesian inference.

Speaker's Bio: 

About the Speaker: Dr. Jing Zhang joined GSU’s Department of Mathematics and Statistics as a tenure-track assistant professor in August 2014. She obtained the Ph.D. degree from Harvard University in 2009. From 2009 to 2010 she was a postdoc at Harvard. From 2010 to 2014, she was an assistant professor at Yale University. Dr. Zhang’s research interests include Bayesian inference on complicated interactions, big data analysis, neuroimage analysis, brain mapping, functional brain imaging analysis, statistical genetics, epigenetics, computational virology, Bayesian networks, graph models, and computational neuroscience. Dr. Zhang has published over 40 peer-reviewed papers. She received Seessel Awards at Yale University from 2010 to 2013. She is currently the lead guest editor for a special issue of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. She is also on the editorial board of the Journal of Proteome Science and Computational Biology and the American Journal of Biostatistics.
