Ricardo Saucedo (rising senior majoring in Computer Science) presented his summer research project titled "GayTwitter: An Investigation of Biases Toward Queer Users in Natural Language Processing Models and AI Technologies"at the McNair Scholar Resarch Symposium on Friday July 27th. Ricardo's project, supervised by Dr. Kevin Scannell, examined how automated techniques that compute positive and negative sentiment scores for various terminology are influenced by the selection of sources.Monday, 30 July 2018
Students collaborating on research with Dr. Flavio Esposito have presented a variety of results at professional meetings this fall.
Mary Hogan (B.S. 2017) presented a poster at the 23rd ACM Annual International Confernece on Mobile Computing and Networking (MOBICOM 2017) at Snowbird, Utah. The work, authored with Dr. Esposito, was titled "A Portfolio Theory Approach to Edge Traffic Engineering via Bayesian Networks."
Thomas Merod (B.S. 2019) and Jiayi "Holly" Wang (B.S. 2017) traveled to Toronto, Canada to present a poster titled "A Behavior-Driven Approach for Expressive Intent Specification in SDN and NFV" at the GENI-NICE workshop in conjunction with the 25th IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols.
Later this semester, Kyle Coleman (B.S. 2018) will be traveling to the 18th ACM/IFIP/USENIX Middleware Conference in Las Vegas to present work coauthored with Dr. Esposito and Dr. Rachel Charney titled "Speeding up Children Reunification in Disaster Scenarios via Serverless Computing." Kyle was also one of six authors for work presented in October at the 4th National Workshop for REU Research in Netowrking and Systems.
