Upcoming Events

Everything You Always Wanted To Know about the NSF ... But Were Afraid to Ask

Duke Computer Science Colloquium
Speaker Name
W. Rance Cleaveland II
Location
LSRC D106
Date and Time
-
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is the premiere federal agency for funding non-medical basic scientific research in the US. The Computing and Communications Foundations (CCF) division, which I head, is part of the Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) directorate of NSF and oversees efforts on the foundations of computing, from algorithms, programing languages, software engineering and hardware design to information theory and future computing paradigms. Each year CCF is responsible for distributing nearly $200m in funding. In this talk I will give a “behind-the-scenes peek” at how CCF, and CISE, operate, and also discuss current and future trends, opportunities and challenges facing the CCF and CISE communities.

Motion Boundaries without Optical Flow

We propose an architecture based on Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) for the detection of motion boundaries from two consecutive images of a video sequence. Existing learning-based approaches start with dense optical flow estimates, which are expensive to compute and often fail near motion boundaries, exactly where they are needed most. In contrast, we explore ways to detect motion boundaries without first computing optical flow. For efficiency, we hypothesize that motion boundaries occur at or near the edges of superpixels in an over-segmentation of the first image.

Getting More Out of the Existing Internet Infrastructure To Improve User Experiences

Ph. D. Defense
Speaker Name
Ilker Nadi Bozkurt
Location

Date and Time

Providing a satisfactory quality of experience (QoE) to Internet users is crucial for content and service providers. When users get bad QoE from an application, such as the videos they are watching on a streaming provider keep freezing or the shopping Web site they are visiting takes a long time to load, they often spend less time on the application, return to it less frequently, or even worse they might switch to an alternative application, in all cases hurting the business financially.
