Xerox Hosts South by Southwest (SXSW) “Playground” Where Entrepreneurs, Educators Can Mingle, Share Ideas
has a lot to say about education and digital technology, but instead of sending an executive to give a speech or sit on a panel, the company has decided to host the “playground” at the South by Southwest EDU
(SXSWedu) conference in Austin, Texas.
The playground is an invite-only area at the conference where “edu-preneurs” share innovations and interact with education professionals. An estimated 10,000 people attend SXSWedu, which runs from March 3-6.

: "Convex and Bayesian methods for link prediction using factored models."
Abstract: Many applications involve multiple interlinked data sources, but existing approach to handle them are often based on latent factor models which are difficult to learn. At the same time, recent advances in convex analysis, mainly based on the nuclear norm (relaxation of the matrix rank) and sparse structured approximations, have shown great theoretical and practical performances to handle very large matrix factorization problems with non-Gaussian noise and missing data. In this talk, we will show how multiple matrices can be jointly factorized using a convex formulation of the problem.
