Human beings are information carnivores: we are constantly collecting, labeling, and organizing data-yet our previous 'systems' cannot keep up with the levels of information we now receive. The Dewey Decimal system is stretched beyond the breaking point, Rand McNally is obsolete, and the shift to online digital music stands as the model for the future in virtually any industry. In order to embrace the new 'miscellaneous' world, we need to understand some basic tenets: There is no such thing as...

We live in a world of great and increasing complexity, where even the most expert professionals struggle to master the tasks they face. Longer training, more advanced technologies: neither seems to prevent grievous errors. There is a remedy in the most humble and simple of all techniques: the checklist. We can identify successful people in many fields who turn to checklists to pull off some of the most difficult tasks, and places where the impact of the checklist is huge:-in the complex world...

Levy processes are random measures that give independent mass to independent increments. I will show how they can be used to model various types of data such as binary vectors or vectors of counts, with applications to text and images. These techniques fall in the category of nonparametric Bayesian methods, and are related to the better known Dirichlet process. ©2008 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Invention is the process of unlocking things that nature knows but we haven't found yet. Innovation is the process of carefully identifying a problem space and then applying technologies from possibly widely disparate fields to solve it (or them). There are three sources of innovation: a need, a dissatisfaction, or a curiosity. A full year course on the methodologies and ways of bringing them to fruition has been prepared and is being taught at the Wharton School of Business. A critical part of...

This is a report on joint work with Kristin Lauter and Peter Stevenhagen. Broker and Stevenhagen have shown that in practice it is not hard to produce an elliptic curve (over some finite field) with a given number N of points, provided that the factorization of N is known. In his talk this week, Stevenhagen will show that the natural generalization of this method to produce genus-2 curves with a given number of points on their Jacobian is an exponential algorithm.

Current business conditions have given rise to a particular kind of distributed team that is mostly collocated except for one remote member. These hub-and-satellite teams face the challenge of leaving the satellite colleague out-of-sight and out-of-mind.

Cells, a fundamental unit of life on this planet, are able to process information deriving both from outside and within to make life-preserving decisions. Molecular signals are passed within and between cells and generated in response to extracellular stimuli, and feed into biochemical networks that carry out the major functions of an organism: energy storage, protection from pathogens, time-of-day determination, etc. Understanding biological information processing is fundamental for learning...

The TV white spaces offer an exciting opportunity for increasing spectrum availability by reusing spectrum not in active use by TVs and wireless mics. While it is simpler to detect TV transmissions, either using sensing or through the whitespace database, the detection of wireless mics is particularly challenging. Their use is dynamic and, furthermore, mic receivers are receive-only devices. For this reason the FCC has made very conservative rules that require white space devices (WSDs) to...

One of the greatest benefits of escience—the use of distributed computing and data resources for scientific discovery—is the opportunity for scientists to begin working with data sets that would have been too large to work with otherwise and, consequently, ask questions that would have not been possible.

Bond percolation on a graph G with parameter p in [0,1] is the random subgraph G p of G obtained by independently deleting each edge with probability 1-p and retaining it with probability p. For many graphs, the size of the largest component of G p exhibits a phase transition: it changes sharply from logarithmic to linear as p increases. When G is the complete graph, this model is known as the Erdos-Renyi random graph: at the phase transition, i.e. p=1/n, the largest component satisfies a...

Diffusion Limited Aggregation (DLA) is a notoriously difficult model for crystal growth introduced in 1981 by Sander and Witten. We consider a variation on DLA in 1 dimension generated by a random walk with large jumps. The growth rate of the diameter of the N particle aggregate depends on the tail of the step distribution, and exhibits three phase transitions when the walk steps have 1, 2 or 3 finite moments. ©2006 Microsoft Corporation.

Numerical programs are imperative programs over integer and real quantities. Such programs are ubiquitous. Common examples include scientific and systems programs, models of control systems such as timed and hybrid automata, and models of biological systems such as biochemical reaction mechanisms and gene regulatory networks.

We prove that every graph has a spectral sparsifier with a number of edges linear in its number of vertices. As linear-sized spectral sparsifiers of complete graphs are expanders, our sparsifiers of arbitrary graphs can be viewed as generalizations of expander graphs. In particular, we prove that for every d > 1 and every undirected, weighted graph G = (V,E,w) on n vertices, there exists a weighted graph H=(V,F,˜{w}) with at most dn edges such that for every x ∈ R V , \[ x T L G x \leq x...
