YINS Summer Seminar

The YINS Summer Seminar Series is designed for students, faculty, and staff of the Yale Institute for Network Science, as well as for their collaborators and summer visitors, to exchange ideas with the rest of the YINS community in a supportive, encouraging environment that promotes learning, individual growth, and the highest standards of academic research. Bring your lunch, and actively join our community!

The YINS Summer Seminar Series will take place on Wednesdays at noon on the 3rd floor of 17 Hillhouse Ave.

YINS Summer Seminar: Mark McKnight

Mark McKnight, “Breadboard: First Slice”

Inference, Information and Decision Systems Group

The Inference, Information and Decision (I.I.D.) Systems Group is led by Amin Karbasi. The research in I.I.D. is at the intersection of learning theory, large-scale networks, and optimum information processing. We devise new algorithms, build models, analyze the behavior of large and complex networks, and develop systems that can automatically acquire and reason about highly uncertain information. Our application domains include interactive recommender systems, social and neural networks, and optimal experimental design.
