Sibo Wang (University of Queensland) – Efficient Algorithms for Approximate Personalized PageRank

Given a graph G, a source node s and a target node t, the personalized PageRank (PPR) of t with respect to s is the probability that a random walk starting from s terminates at t, which reflects the importance of t with respect to s. Personalized PageRank has important applications in web search and social networks. [...]

Ioannis Panagea (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) – Optimization and Multiplicative Weights Update Algorithm under the Lens of Dynamical Systems

In this talk we will describe two of our recent results. The first result is on first-order methods including gradient descent, block coordinate descent, mirror descent and variants thereof. Specifically, we will show that these well-known algorithms avoid saddle points for almost all initializations. [...]

Prof. T. Russell Hsing (Visiting Professor, SUTD) – Fog Computing and Networking: A Key Pillar for Current 5G Engineering to future 6G Research

Abstract Pushing processing and storage into the “cloud” has been a key trend in networking and distributed systems in the past decade. In the next wave of network architecture and technology advance, the cloud is now descending to be diffused among the client devices, often with mobility too: the cloud is becoming “fog.” For example, more than just faster speed, many IoT […]
