Date: 21 March 2018 Time: 14:00-15:00 Location: LT4 Speaker: Yi Zhou Institution: School of Computing Sciences, UEA Organiser: Dr. Michal Mackiewicz   Abstract Along with the ever-increasing number of motor vehicles in current transportation systems, intelligent video surveillance and management becomes more necessary which is one of the important artificial intelligence fields. Vehicle-related problems are being widely explored and applied...

Machine Learning Ensemble Methods and Applications

Date:  9th March, 2018 Time: 14:00-15:00 Location: SCI 1.20 (MTH common room) Speaker: Dr. Wenjia Wang Institution: School of Computing Sciences, UEA Organiser: Prof. Elena Kulinskaya (CMP), Prof Peter Moffatt (ECO) Abstract An ensemble, in the context of machine learning and data mining, can be simply viewed as a computing paradigm or system that combines some models by using an aggregation function with an aim of producing a more accurate and reliable...

Shapelet Transforms for Univariate and Multivariate Time Series Classification

Date and Time : 21st Feb, 13:00-14:00 Location : MED 1.02 Speaker : Aaron Bostrom Institution : School of Computing Sciences, UEA Organiser : Dr. Michal Mackiewicz   Abstract Time Series Classification(TSC) is a growing field of machine learning research. One particular algorithm from the TSC literature is the Shapelet Transform (ST). Shapelets are phase independent subsequence's that are extracted from time series to form discriminatory features. It has been...

From homology-relations to gene and species trees

Date : 8th Feb, 13:00-14:00 Location : SCI 3.05 Speaker : Prof. Marc Hellmuth's seminar Institution : University of Greifswald Organiser : Dr. Michal Mackiewicz   Abstract The distinction of homology-relations, e.g. orthologous and paralogous genes, is crucial and lies at the heart of many genomic studies. Intriguingly, there are methods to infer orthologs or to detect horizontal gene transfer (which yield xenologous genes) without the need to...

Responsibility or Difference? The Content and Determinants of legislative discourse on immigration

Date: 9th February, 2018 Time: 14:00-15:00 Location: SCI 1.20 MTH Library Speaker: Dr. Eitan Tzelgov Organisers: E Kulinskaya and P. Mofatt Email: CMPMTH.LSO@uea.ac.uk if you have not registered for the mailing list   Abstract Abstract: We analyze immigration-related legislative speeches from the Swedish parliament (2005-2016). Utilizing a text scaling method, we find that MPs’ expressed positions on immigration fluctuate between ‘socioeconomic...
