XRCE at GdR ISIS in Paris, France; 4 February, 2014

Guillaume Bouchard will give a talk at GdR ISIS: "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.

Digital Preservation blog and video

The EU project Pericles(Promoting and Enhancing Reuse of Information throughout the Content Lifecycle taking account of Evolving Semantics) addresses the challenge of ensuring that digital content remains accessible in a continually changing environment.
As a partner of this project XRCE hosted a technical workshop in December on their work on the Linked Resource Model. Details of this are posted on the Pericles project Blog

Next Pericles project meeting, 28 – 31 January 2014, London, U.K.
