May 7th, 2013
, Machine Learning for Services (MLS) research group, will give a seminar: Convex methods for multi-view learning, link prediction and collective matrix factorization
"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."

Seminar: "Overview of the "Mobilité Chair" research program on sustainable mobility"; Friday, April 19th, 2013
at 02:00 PM in Everest
Speaker: Catherine Morency
, professor at Polytechnique Montréal
, Montréal, QC, Canada: In 2010, the Mobilité industrial Chair at Polytechnique Montréal on sustainable mobility started its research activities to assist planners and decision makers in the assessment of the sustainability levels of transport strategies, plans and policies. Four industrial partners are actively supporting this research group: the City of Montreal, the Quebec ministry of transportation, the transportation metropolitan agency and the Montreal transit authority.
