Seminar Geometrija, vizuelizacija i obrazovanje sa primenama, 9. septembar 2010.


U četvrtak, 9. septembra 2010. u 17:15 časova u sali 301f  Matematičkog Instituta SANU, Knez Mihajlova 35, održaće se vanredni sastanak  Seminara.

Predavanje pod nazivom "Connections and Curvature in Differential Geometry" održaće Graham Hall, University of Aberdeen.


In this talk I will try to indicate precisely the relationships between the various ways that the curvature of a manifold can manifest itself. Let M be a manifold of dimension n admitting a connection D which is the Levi-Civita connection of a metric g on M of arbitrary signature. The curvature, fixed by g, shows itself in many ways;  by the curvature tensor Riem derived from D, by the holonomy group of D, by the unparametrised geodesics arising from D (the so-called, projective structure), by the Weyl conformal tensor, C, by the Weyl projective tensor, W,  by the sectional curvature of Riem and g and, doubtless, many others. Clearly, g determines D, Riem, C,  W and the sectional curvature. It is then interesting to ask how many other relationships there are between these structures and, in particular, to what extent the original metric g can be recovered from each of them.

 I will show that there are many interesting links between them and, in the situation when the dimension of M is small, they can be quite precisely stated. On the other hand, not all such relations between them are as convenient as one might like and I will indicate this by means of examples. Such problems are, of course, interesting for differential geometers. In addition, the situation when M has dimension 4 and g is of Lorentz signature, is interesting for general relativity theory, especially the connection between the projective structure (more precisely, the unparametrised, timelike geodesics on M) and the Newton-Einstein principle of equivalence.

Naziv predavanja: Vertical Acceleration: From Algorithms to Logic Gates

Abstract. Huge growth in the complexity of science over the past decade has driven the need for ever more computationally demanding mathematical models. This has in turn led to massive growth in data center compute capacity, and consequently power and cooling requirements. We report the real-world results from Maxeler Technologies to improve the price-performance and just raw speed for financial and seismic computations by using custom computing machines. The key to our acceleration approach is the vertical acceleration of key pieces of the algorithms, including the bit level, arithmetic level, architecture level, and algorithm level.

Naslov predavanja:
Structured Regression by Continuous Conditional Random Fields and Multiple Noisy Oracles


We will first describe and evaluate our new kind of probabilistic model for structured regression called continuous conditional random fields (CCRF) that uses multiple non-structured predictors as its features. These features are constructed such that the result is a Gaussian predictor where learning is reduced to convex optimization leading to a global solution for a set of parameters while inference is conveniently conducted through matrix computation.
Then, we will present a new Bayesian approach that learns a regression model from data with noisy labels obtained by multiple oracles. Our method provides a closed form solution for model parameters and in our experiments was consistently more accurate than a model trained with averaged estimates from multiple oracles as labels.
Presented results are obtained in collaboration with Y. Guo, V. Ouzienko, V. Radosavljevic, K. Ristovski and S. Vucetic at Temple University. Both articles will appear at the Proc. 19th European Conf. on Artificial Intelligence, Lisbon, Portugal, Aug. 2010.
