  • LIACS research seminar
    20 Jun 2018, 11:45 - 12:30, Snellius # 174

    Dear colleagues,

    You are all invited to join the LIACS researchseminar on *Wednesday, March 21, from 12.45 to 13.30 PM* (the talk fits betweenyour lectures) in room *174*. Lunch will be provided.

    The speaker is Benjamin van derBurgh, LIACS

    Abstract:

    Whilethe possibility of a hostile AI takeover gets increasingly more attention inthe media, in many industries AI is still nowhere to be found. Applications inthe medical field focus on advanced tasks like diagnosis assistance and drugpersonalisation, but routine tasks are still mostly forgotten about.

    Lastyear it was estimated that physiotherapists spend 26% of their working hours onadministrative tasks. In the project “From Keyboard to Patient” we focus on thedevelopment of tools that make these tasks both more efficient and effective.

    Inthis talk I’ll give an overview of the first six months of R&D, includingapplications of Natural Language Processing for automating administrativetasks.

    The next three talks are on:

    == April 18 ==

    Snellius room 174

    Prof. Dr. Stefan Pickl, Univ. derBundeswehr, Munich

  • PhD seminar: June 14 - 12:00-13:00 - Room 313
    14 Jun 2018, 11:00 - 12:00, Room 313

    Dear fellow PhDcandidates and postdocs,


    The sixth PhD seminar is coming up this Thursday! Once more with free lunch,fruit, and coffee.

    This is also the lastseminar before the summer break.

    Date: Thursday June 14th 2018
    Time: 12:00-13:00
    Location: Room 313
    Speakers
    : Hongchang Shan and Can Wang

    Hongchang will talkabout his work on Machine learning for efficient Brain Computer Interfaces:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    A Brain ComputerInterface (BCI) translates brain signals into computer commands, therebybuilding communication between the human brain and outside devices. In thisway, human-beings can use only the brain to express their thoughts without anyreal movement. BCI has been developed to help locked-in (e.g. AmyotrophicLateral Sclerosis (ALS) ) patients. In recent years, BCI has also beenpopularly developed for healthy people, in application domains such asentertainments, mental state monitoring as well as in IoT services. However,BCI has currently been limited to use in laboratory due to two problems. One isthat the BCI signal recognition rate is still not high enough. The other isthat the BCI signal processing method has high complexity. The hardware of aportable device (e.g. a mobile phone) can not afford such high-complexitymethods. Thus, in order to bring BCI to the daily life, we aim at developingmachine learning methods to improve the BCI signal recognition accuracy and  also reduce the algorithm complexity. This talk will first introduceseveral classic BCI applications. And then it will present some traditionalmachine learning methods for BCI signal recognition and also discuss ournewly-developed Convolutional Neural Networks.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------


    Can will talk about her recently started project on Dynamic Data Analyticsthrough automatically Constructed Machine Learning Pipelines:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    At the first stage, myproject focus on short term load forecasting and autoML, Electric loadforecasts are important forthe electric power industry. Many big utilities havetheir own load forecasting system. Load forecasts are needed by other businessentities as well, such as commercial companies, banks, insurance companies andstock trading firms. my work is only for electric load forecasting. 

    We want to buildan automatically Constructed Machine Learning Pipelines to analysis loadsignals. Automating the analysis and optimization of dynamic energy data,measuring decentralized energy production, consumption, storage, and chargingin a smart grid environment, this energy transition is all about bettermanagement of the highly volatile supply and demand.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------


    Future seminars will take place every 3rd Thursday of the month, from 12:00 to13:00.
    More precisely the 20th of September, 18th of October and 15th of November (newdates!).

    See you at the seminar!

  • bachelor presentations
    14 Jun 2018, 09:00 - 11:00

    Dear colleagues,

     

    We are happy to invite you for two (unrelated) bachelorpresentations on Thursday June 14, 2018. Both take place in Snellius, room 403.

     

    At 10:00 Joep Helmonds will present "Predictingno-shows in Brazilian primary care".

    At 11:00 Tom van Dijkhuizen will present"OpenPhoneMap --- mapping cellular tower coverage".

     

    Feel free to join us for one or perhaps two presentations.See abstracts below.

    Cor Veenman & Walter Kosters

     

    Abstract Joep:

    In healthcare no-show of patients is a serious problem.

    No-show percentages of 25% and above have been reported.

    The cost of no-show in the Netherlands is estimated atEUR 300 million/year. A dataset of patient appointment data in Brazil was madeavailable for research. The dataset has been analyzed using six differentmachine learning algorithms.

    In this presentation results of the algorithms arepresented and compared.

     

    Abstract Tom:

    It is widely known that cellular towers have a verylimited operating range and capacity. As a consequence, cell phone users willbe spread across a large number of cellular towers when texting or makingcalls. Each tower has its own ID number (cell-ID). Using a large amount ofhistorical cell-ID data and GPS positions obtained from http://www.opencellid.org/">www.opencellid.org, one can form an ideaof the coverage area of cell towers. Combining these data with kernel densityestimation and an open-source software package, an attempt is made to visualisethe coverage area, which will be discussed in the context if the infamousDeventer murder case.

    Hopeto see you there!

     

    Allthe best, Max

     



    OnFriday June 1st, Dr Janelle Ward will give a talk at Media Technology on thetopic ofautoethnography, an approach to academic researchthat integrates science with elements of autobiography and creative writing. Weare proud to welcome Dr Ward at our programme, and look much forward to thisevent! 

    Date: 1 June 2018 at 15.15pm

    Location: Snellius Building, room 413

    Registration: free; non-Media Technology students are advisedto send an email to m.j.van.duijn@liacs.leidenuniv.nl to besure of a seat

    Title and abstract:

    Writing the (creative) self into research: The process andproduct of autoethnography

    Doing academic research in a creative way is key to uncoveringnew insights. As a creative researcher, are you really thinking outside thebox? For example, have you ever imagined reflecting on and writing about yourpersonal experience in order to better understand your research topic? In thistalk I will discuss autoethnography, an approach that combines elements ofautobiography and ethnography. We will discuss how autoethnography lets youembrace subjectivity, and in the process, challenges traditional notions ofwhat academic research is.  

    The talk will be followed by a short discussion anda "borrel" sponsored by Media Technology.

     

    Dr Janelle Ward is an Assistant Professor at the Department ofMedia and Communication, Erasmus University Rotterdam. Her primary researchexpertise is in digital communication. Currently she studies howpeople create and maintain online identities on online platforms and datingapps. Besides her academic carreer she is active as a creativewriter. For more information on her research and other activities,see her https://www.eur.nl/people/janelle-ward">personal page at the Erasmus University.

  • Master Thesis Presentation Yifan Zhang, June 1, 13:00, Room 408
    1 Jun 2018, 12:00 - 13:00, 408 Snellius

    Dear All,

    You are cordially invited to attend the Master Thesis presentation and defenseof Yifan Zhang titled: 

    "A Marketing Research on Exploring theApplication Prospects of SaaS BI in Small and Medium-sized RetailEnterprises"


    Date: Friday June 1, 2018
    Time: 13:00
    Place: Room 408

     

    Abstract:

     

    With the rapiddevelopment of China's economy and the progress of technology, most largeforeign capital and domestic retail enterprises have developed or purchasedbusiness intelligence (BI) systems to better analyze the data in order tooccupy a more favorable position in the very competitive market. However, therest of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in the Retail sector rarelychoose to implement the BI system in the actual operation and management. 

    This paper conducts amarket survey on the application of BI in Retail SME in China and analyses theapplication of their marketing-mix theories and (dis)satisfaction offunctionality using a BI system. Based on the outcome of this survey, a SaaS BIsolution is proposed that can meet the needs of Retail SME in China.

     

    Looking forward to seeyou tomorrow afternoon!

    Title:

    DesigningShips using Constrained Multi-Objective Efficient Global Optimization.

    Abstract:

    A modern ship designprocess is subject to a wide variety of constraints such as safety constraints,regulations, and physical constraints. Traditionally, ship designs areoptimized in an iterative design process. However, this approach is very timeconsuming and is likely to get stuck in local optima. Not only does thisoptimization problem have complex constraints, it also consists of multipleobjectives like resistance, stability, and cost.

    This constraintmulti-objective optimization problem can be dealt with much more efficientlythan through the traditional approach. In this thesis, a global optimizationalgorithm is proposed that explores the design space with the help ofintegrated software tools that are capable of simultaneous evaluation of theship objectives and constraints. The optimization algorithm proposed uses theS-Metric-Selection-based Efficient Global Optimization (SMS-EGO) in combinationwith constraint handling techniques from an algorithm called Self-AdjustingConstrained Optimization by Radial Basis Function Approximation (SACOBRA).Since the evaluation of these ship designs is expensive in terms ofcomputational effort, it is crucial for the algorithm to find feasiblenear-optimal solutions in as few evaluations as possible.

    In this thesis, it is shown that the proposedConstrained Efficient Global Optimization (CEGO) algorithm can significantlyimprove ship designs by automatic optimization using a small evaluation budget.

    Metaboliccoupling in bacteria

    Speaker
    Shraddha Shitut(IBL/LIC)
    Shaddra is a postdoc in the “Origens Center”, a Dutch initiative that aims tobring together a broad range of scientific disciplines to address one of thebiggest challenges in science: the origin, or origins, of life on earth and inthe universe. Its aim is to spark and facilitate transdisciplinary researchbetween scientists associated with Dutch universities and research institutes. Shaddha’sresearch interests are: Microbial community interactions, symbioticassociations, intercellular communication; evolution of multicellularity,transitions in individuality.
    https://www.origins-center.nl/">https://www.origins-center.nl/</span>

    Abstract

    Bacteria within communitiesdisplay a wide range of interactions that have either a positive or negativeimpact on their growth. Cross-feeding is one such interaction that has apositive effect on either one (commensalism) or both (mutualism) individuals.By exchanging metabolites, bacteria can save metabolite biosynthesis cost andhence enhance growth as a consortium resulting in the spread of cross-feedinggenotypes in nature. However, it is unclear what physiological effects arisefrom metabolite exchange between two individuals. How does themetabolite-producing cell cope with the loss of the metabolite upon interactingwith a recipient? Using a synthetically designed cross-feeding system in Escherichiacoli that exchange amino acids we aim to answer this question. We show anuptake of amino acids by an auxotrophic recipient from a prototrophic donorcell through nanotubes in coculture. Upon quantifying internal amino acidspools, fluctuations were observed in the amino acid levels in both genotypes.Interestingly, this change in internal amino acid pool in the donor celltriggered amino acid production by delaying the feedback inhibition of aminoacid biosynthesis. Taken together, our results show how a loss-of-functionmutation (auxotrophy) can lead to a functional fusion through metaboliccoupling of two independent cells, much like that seen in host-symbiontassociations.

    Title
    Natural thermal convection: Scaling relations and boundary layers

    Speaker

    Olga Shishkina (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization)
    Olga is Heisenberg Fellow and head of the “Theory of Turbulent convection” group at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen. Her research focusses on the nature of turbulent flows, in particular, the physics of turbulent thermal convection. Research interests in natural and applied sciences and engineering include in particular the large-scale oceanic circulation, wind chill effects in hot and cold regions, supergranulation in the solar upper convective zone, heat and mass transfer in nanofluids, surface-tension-driven convection and vibration-induced convection in low gravity, improvement of the efficiency of technological heating and cooling processes, control of ventilation processes in living quarters and in transport. 
    Olga is one of the participants in the workshop “
    Rotating Convection: from the Lab to the Stars” that is being held in the Lorentz Center from  May 28through June 1.
     

    Abstract

    Thermal convection is ubiquitous in nature and plays an important rolein many engineering and technological applications. One of the main problemshere is prediction of the global heat and momentum transport, for differentflow configurations. In this talk we will discuss some classical convectiveflow configurations, for which the scaling relations for the global heat andmomentum transport can be derived from the boundary-layer equations.

    Lecture

    Title
    Benchmarking Crimes: An Emerging Threat in Systems Security

    Speaker
    Erik van der Kouwe (LIACS)
    Erik is an assistant professor in security at the computer systems group ofLIACS. His research interests span a wide area of computer systems, inparticular security and operating systems. In addition, he is interested inestablishing best practices for evaluation in systems security.

     

    Abstract

    Properly benchmarking a system is a difficult andintricate task. Unfortunately, even a seemingly innocuous benchmarking mistakecan compromise the guarantees provided by a given systems security defense andalso put its reproducibility and comparability at risk. This threat isparticularly insidious as it is generally not a result of malice and can easilygo undetected by both authors and reviewers. Moreover, as modern defenses oftentrade off security for performance in an attempt to find an ideal design pointin the performance-security space, the damage caused by benchmarking mistakesis increasingly worrisome.

    To analyze the magnitude of the phenomenon, weidentify a set of 22 "benchmarking crimes" that threaten the validityof systems security evaluations and perform a survey of 50 defense paperspublished in top venues. To ensure the validity of our results, we perform thecomplete survey twice, with two independent readers. We find only a very smallnumber of disagreements between readers, showing that our assessment ofbenchmarking crimes is highly reproducible.

    We show that benchmarking crimes are widespread evenin papers published at tier-1 venues. We find that tier-1 papers commit anaverage of five benchmarking crimes and we find only a single paper in oursample that committed no benchmarking crimes. Moreover, we find that the scaleof the problem is constant over time, suggesting that the community is not yetaddressing it despite the problem being now more relevant than ever.

    This threatens the scientific process, which relies onreproducibility and comparability to ensure that published research advancesthe state of the art. We hope to raise awareness of these issues and providerecommendations to improve benchmarking quality and safeguard the scientificprocess in our community.

  • PhD seminar: May 17 - 12:00-13:00 - Room 313
    17 May 2018, 11:00 - 12:15, room 313

    Dear fellow PhDcandidates and postdocs,


    The fifth PhD seminar is coming up this Thursday! Once more with free lunch,fruit, and coffee.

    Date: Thursday May 17th 2018
    Time: 12:00-13:00
    Location: Room 313
    Speakers
    : Lise Stork and António Pereira Barata

    Lise will talk about herwork on data extraction from handwritten historical documents:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Large manuscript collections of historical biodiversityexpeditions are housed in natural history museums throughout the world.Potentially they can serve as rich sources of data for cultural historical andbiodiversity research. Our aim is to realise a digital infrastructure to open up,enrich and connect these illustrated handwritten manuscripts. Two mainchallenges are: (i) the archives refer to historical place names and outdatedtaxonomic classifications and (ii) they are written in multiple languages andcontain hard-to-read overlapping handwriting from various authors. To addressthese issues, our contribution is twofold: we extend a handwriting textrecognition (HTR) system with (i) a formally coded data model and (ii) a layoutrecognition system.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------


    António will talk about his recently started project:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Governmental bodiescommit to ensuring citizen safety, security, and trust. In order to makethe highest impact possible, these agencies need to wisely choose howto allocate their limited assets. To accomplish this, the Human Environment and TransportInspectorate (ILT) recognized the need for data science and networkscience as tools for data-driven approaches for their inspections. Wedescribe a use case in which machine learning is able to identify possiblefraudulent waste notices.

    The Waste ShipmentsRegulation (WSR) comprises the legislation that companies must followin order to transport waste materials through a European Union (EU)member state. The legislation requires that a company wanting totransfer waste reports the type of waste, as the cost for each type isdifferent. As a result, some companies might intentionally mislabel theirwaste. Hence, finding these mislabelled waste transports using machinelearning techniques is the topic of this work.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------


    Future seminars will take place every 3rd Thursday of the month, from 12:00 to13:00.
    More precisely the 14th of June (moved to a week earlier!), 20th ofSeptember, 18th of October and 15th of November (new dates!).

    See you at the seminar!

  • LIACS research seminar
    16 May 2018, 11:45 - 12:45, Snellius # 174

    Dear colleagues,

    You are all invited to join the LIACS researchseminar on *Wednesday, March 21, from 12.45 to 13.30 PM* (the talk fits betweenyour lectures) in room *174*. Lunch will be provided.

    The speaker is Benjamin van derBurgh, LIACS

    Abstract:

    Whilethe possibility of a hostile AI takeover gets increasingly more attention inthe media, in many industries AI is still nowhere to be found. Applications inthe medical field focus on advanced tasks like diagnosis assistance and drugpersonalisation, but routine tasks are still mostly forgotten about.

    Lastyear it was estimated that physiotherapists spend 26% of their working hours onadministrative tasks. In the project “From Keyboard to Patient” we focus on thedevelopment of tools that make these tasks both more efficient and effective.

    Inthis talk I’ll give an overview of the first six months of R&D, includingapplications of Natural Language Processing for automating administrativetasks.

    The next three talks are on:

    == April 18 ==

    Snellius room 174

    Prof. Dr. Stefan Pickl, Univ. derBundeswehr, Munich

    == May 16 ==

  • Invitation Theory Group Talk
    30 Apr 2018, 13:00 - 14:00, 403

    Dear all,

     

    This Monday, April 30th, the Theory Group invites you toa lecture from guest Tom van Dijk from the University of Linz. Tom will give atalk on his CAV paper about solving Parity Games. See abstract below.

     

     

    Time:            April30th at 14:00

    Location:       Snellius403

     

    Title:

    Parity game solving, the state of the art

     

    Abstract:

    Parity games are deceptively simple two-player games ondirected graphs labeled with numbers.

     

    Parity games have important practical applications informal verification and synthesis, especially to solve the model-checkingproblem of the modal mu-calculus. They are also interesting from the theoryperspective, because they are widely believed to admit a polynomial solution,but so far no such algorithm is known. In recent years, a number of newalgorithms and improvements to existing algorithms have been proposed.

     

    In this talk, we introduce parity games in an accessibleway and discuss why they are so interesting. We present various solutions thathave been proposed over the years. We also present a comprehensive empiricalevaluation of modern parity game algorithms and solvers, both on real worldbenchmarks and randomly generated games.

  • Master thesis presentation
    26 Apr 2018, 10:00 - 11:00, 402

    Dear All,

     

    you are cordially invited to attend the Master thesispresentation of Jesper van Engelen, on work he conducted over the last 9 monthsas a member of the ADA Research Group at LIACS.

     

    Time:           Thursday,26 April, 11:00

    Location:                Snellius,Room 402

     

    Title:            Semi-supervisedensemble learning

    Student:                 Jespervan Engelen

    Supervision:  HolgerHoos & Matthijs van Leeuwen

     

    In many machine learning problems, labeled data is scarseor expensive to obtain, whereas unlabeled data is abundant and cheap.Semi-supervised learning is the branch of machine learning that considers usinglabeled and unlabeled data jointly to build better learners. In this thesispresentation and defense, we propose a new semi-supervised ensemble learningmethod based on automated machine learning. We achieve state-of-the-artperformance in multiclass classification problems using AutoML. Furthermore, weexamine the field of semi-supervised learning and, in particular,semi-supervised classification.

     

    The talk will provide a gentle introduction tosemi-supervised learning and is suited for anyone with a background in computerscience (or a related discipline) who is interested in machine learning.

     

    Looking forward to seeing there!

    Dearcolleagues!

     

    Everyyear around this time we are organising the Social Technologies StudentSymposium, as part of a Research Seminar within the Media Technology programme.It’s a tradition that the student talks are complemented with a keynote lectureby a speaker of international standing. This year we are very proud to announcethat 

     

    Dr Kit Opie 

     

    agreedto give the keynote address, entitled:

     

    Major transitions in evolution.When’s the next one? A Bayesian phylogenetic approach.

     

    We hereby invite you to attend this event, taking placeon Thursday April 19th at 4.15pm in room E001 of the VanSteenis building.

    Invitation

     

    The MSc in Media Technology and the Leiden Institute forAdvanced Computer Science have the pleasure to welcome Dr Kit Opie in Leiden onApril 19th. 

     

    Kit Opie is affiliated to University College London and theUniversity of Bristol. He researches the evolution of social behaviour inhumans and other primates, mostly using Bayesian phylogenetic methods developedin evolutionary biology.

     

    You are cordially invited to join his public lecture takingplace Thursday April 19th at 4.15pm in room E001 of the Van Steenis building.

     

    Public lecture by http://www.ucl.ac.uk/anthropology/people/research-staff/kit-opie">Dr KitOpie:

     

    Major transitions in evolution.When’s the next one? A Bayesian phylogenetic approach.

    Two evolutionarybiologists, John Maynard Smith and Eors Szathmary, have identified eight majorevolutionary transitions in the way information is stored and transmitted fromthe beginning of life on Earth to the evolution of human society and language.From the common features of these transitions they argue that two humaninventions rank as major transitions too. Writing, invented five thousand yearsago, brought about large scale human societies. Computer technology is drivingthe current transition and the changes that it is bringing may be every bit astransformative as the previous ones. First, I test the applicability of thecommon features of the transitions to the evolution of primate societies usingBayesian phylogenetic methods. Then I propose approaches to test MajorTransition theory for the evolution of language and writing. Finally I ask ifit’s possible to use the transition features to start to make some predictionsabout the impact that computer technology may now be having on human society,culture and cognition. These transition features can make sense of thepolitical upheavals of recent times, but more importantly, may act as a guideto the changes in society and culture we can expect over the coming decades.

    19 Apr 2018, 11:00 - 12:00, 313

    Dear fellow PhDcandidates and postdocs,


    The fourth PhD seminar is coming up this Thursday! Once more with free lunch,fruit, and coffee.

    Time: 12:00-13:00
    Location: Room 313
    Speakers
    : Yu Liu and António Pereira Barata

    Yu will talk about DeepLearning for Vision-Language Applications:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    We can recognize apicture of a panda after hearing the description “black and white bears”without ever having seen one. This demonstrates the multi-modal interactionbetween vision and language. Nowadays, the explosive growth of visual andtextual data (from Internet and social networks) have triggered a massiveamount of research activities in multi-modal understanding and reasoning. Thistalk aims to introduce several vision-language applications, such as imagecaptioning, visual question answering, image-text matching and imagegeneration. Also, it is encouraged to talk about our related work briefly.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------


    António will talk about his recently started project:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Governmental bodiescommit to ensuring citizen safety, security, and trust. In order to makethe highest impact possible, these agencies need to wisely choose howto allocate their limited assets. To accomplish this, the Human Environmentand Transport Inspectorate (ILT) recognized the need for data scienceand network science as tools for data-driven approaches for their inspections.We describe a use case in which machine learning is able to identifypossible fraudulent waste notices.

  • Master thesis presentation Bob Wansink
    10 Apr 2018, 14:30 - 15:30, 402

    Dear all,

     

    You are invited for the master thesis presentation of BobWansink, entitled:

    Finding Minimal Conflicting Teacher Sets for Dutch HighSchool Timetabling

     

    Date&time: Tuesday April 10, 2018, 16:00-16:45 (or alittle later)

    Location: Snellius 402

    Supervisors: Jeannette de Graaf & Walter Kosters

     

    Abstract

    We examine the problem of finding (small) teacher sets inDutch high school timetables which can not be scheduled conflict-free due totheir combined schedule constraints.

    Obtaining these minimal conflicting teacher sets allows ascheduler to identify and fix conflicts at an early stage of the schedulingprocess. To find them, the schedule is modeled in the DIMACS CNF file format,which can then be addressed with a SAT solver.

    A number of algorithms for finding these minimalconflicting teacher sets is proposed, and computational experiments show thebenefits and shortcomings of each algorithm.

    This Week’s Discoveries| 3 April 2018

    First Lecture

    Title
    Is sustainableagriculture an inherent contradiction?

    Speaker
    JoséMogollón, (CML)
    José is an Assistant Professor at the CML. His main research drive is tounderstand the role of humans on the Earth system, especially in order to findsolutions to ameliorate the increasing anthropogenic footprint on theenvironment.

    Abstract

    The industrial revolution brought forth notjust a major change in global manufacturing and economic output, but also ledto a massive population boom that has continued into present times. In order tosustain this growth, agricultural output has drastically increased throughoutthe globe both in terms of cropland areas and cropland production. With anexpected population increase from today's 7.6 billion up to 8.5-10 billion by2050, agricultural production sees no sign of slowing down in the near future. Inthis talk I will discuss the challenges of working toward the goal of feedingthe global population and the challenges that this poses for the globalenvironment.

    Second Lecture,Lorentz Center highlight

    Title
    The centrioles,tiny cellular structures playing critical roles in proliferation, motility andcommunication

    Speaker
    Monica Bettencourt Dias (IGC)
    Monica is professor and head of the Cell Cycle Regulation group of the
    Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC) in Oeiras, Portugaland director of IGC. She is interested in generalprinciples in biology regarding the counting and assembling of complexsubcellular structures, and their variations observed during development, indisease and evolution. Her group studies the regulation of cell proliferation with an emphasis on http://sites.igc.gulbenkian.pt/ccr/r_centrosomeproject.html">centrioles and cilia. Monica is participating in the workshop “Evolution of Biomolecular Networks: Rules of theGame” that is being held in the Lorentz Center from 3 April through 6 April.

    Abstract

    In this seminar I will talk aboutcentrioles, structures that were discovered more than one century ago, whichhave remained mysterious until recently. I will talk about their role andunique properties: how cells ensure their number is always correct, how this isderegulated in cancer, and how cells maintain or destroy centrioles dependingon the tissue type.

    Social Media and its Bots: Some Insights from aForming Field

    SocialMedia has become an important source of information and means of virtual socialinteraction that nowadays encompasses more than a third of the worldspopulation and is still growing. Recently, we have seen several electioncampaigns with surprising outcome (Brexit, US election) and have started towonder if and how social bots have been involved in Propaganda and opinionmanipulation. Even Facebook now acknowledges so-called "informationoperations". During the last 2 years, the PropStop project has detectedand investigated several occurrences of such operations, e.g. in the last weeksbefore the German general elections of September 2017. We report on the currentstate, especially concerning the use and detection of social bots, and envisionhow the situation will evolve in the near future.

     

    You are allinvited!

     

    When:                 Tuesday March 27th,15:00 – 16:00

    21 Mar 2018, 12:45 - 13:45, Snellius # 174

    Dear colleagues,

    You are all invited to join the LIACS researchseminar on *Wednesday, March 21, from 12.45 to 13.30 PM* (the talk fits betweenyour lectures) in room *174*. Lunch will be provided.

    The speaker is Benjamin van derBurgh, LIACS

    Abstract:

    Whilethe possibility of a hostile AI takeover gets increasingly more attention inthe media, in many industries AI is still nowhere to be found. Applications inthe medical field focus on advanced tasks like diagnosis assistance and drugpersonalisation, but routine tasks are still mostly forgotten about.

    Lastyear it was estimated that physiotherapists spend 26% of their working hours onadministrative tasks. In the project “From Keyboard to Patient” we focus on thedevelopment of tools that make these tasks both more efficient and effective.

    Inthis talk I’ll give an overview of the first six months of R&D, includingapplications of Natural Language Processing for automating administrativetasks.

    15 Mar 2018, 12:00 - 13:00, Room 313

    Dear fellow PhDcandidates and postdocs,


    Next week the second PhD seminar will take place. Once more with free lunch,fruit, and coffee.

    Date: Thursday March 15th 2018
    Time: 12:00-13:00
    Location: Room 313
    Speakers
    : Lieuwe Vinkhuijzen and Dirk Meijer

    Lieuwe give a short talkintroducing the PhD project he will be working on in the coming years.

    Dirk will talk about:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Sewer inspections needto be performed periodically to ensure performance is up to standards. Imageand video data collected by a ‘pipe inspection gadget’ is often manuallyinspected, leading to subjective, inconsistent, and unreliable deteriorationand urgency ratings. The first step in automating this process is reducing thesearch space. We used PCA on extracted image features as an unsupervisedanomaly detection framework. This also has the side effect of augmenting thecurrent workflow by indicating possible defects during inspection.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------


    Future seminars will take place every 3rd Thursday of the month, from 12:00 to13:00.
    More precisely the 19th of April, 17th of May and 21st of June.

    This Week’s Discoveries| 13 March 2018

    First Lecture

    Title
    Harnessingplant-Streptomyces interactions for the discovery of new antimicrobials.

    Speaker
    Anne van der Meij (IBL)
    Anne is a PhD student is the group of Gilles van Wezel. She is
    a microbiologist with a love for filamentous bacteria calledstreptomycetes. These bacteria are well-known antibiotic producers and aretherefore important for human health. Interestingly, a lot of streptomycetesform close associations with among others animals, insects and plants. Her PhDproject is focused on plant-Streptomyces interactions since they have likelyplayed a key role in the evolution of the chemical diversity of Streptomycesderived antibiotics. The aim is to understand these interactions and use themas elicitors for the production of novel antibiotics.

    Second Lecture

    Title
    How socialsciences improve drug dosing

     

    Speaker
    Elke Krekels(LACDR)
    Elke Krekels is currently employed as an assistant professor at the division ofSystems Biomedicine and Pharmacology of the LACDR. Using quantitative pharmacologicalapproaches her research focusses on developing evidence-based drug dosingguidelines for special patient populations and on developing zebrafish modelsfor pre-clinical research with inproved inter-species scaling potential.

     

    Abstract

    In drugdevelopment, accurate quantification of changes in disease severity isessential to establish drug effects needed for the assessment of efficacy andthe development of optimal drug dosing guidelines. There are however diseasesfor which no measures are available to directly and objectively quantifydisease severity. In these cases, disease severity may be quantified usingclinical scores in which multiple items related to the disease are rated basedon observations of a patient. Commonly, the analysis of multi-item tests isbased on total scores, but since these do not stay true to the underlyingnumerical nature of these data, the statistical power of the analysis isreduced and as a result clinical trials may fail to proof statisticallysignificant drug effects, preventing potential effective medicine from reachingthe market.

    Item responsetheory (IRT) was developed 70 years ago in social sciences, but its idealapplicability for the analysis of multi-item clinical scores was onlyrecognized a few years ago. IRT uses all item-level data to derive anunobserved latent variable, that in this case reflects disease severity. Theconcept of IRT will be explained and illustrated with results obtained in theanalysis of pain measurements in preverbal children.

    Award-winning documentary AlphaGo

    The Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LIACS) invites you to an exclusive movie screening of the award-winning documentary AlphaGo. The program starts at 15:30 in lecture room 1 of the Science Campus (Gorlaeus Building, Einsteinweg 55, Leiden). The movie is made available to LIACS by Google.

    Google DeepMind’s researchers built the artificially intelligent (AI) AlphaGo algorithm. It was programmed to learn how to play Go by analysing previous Go games and playing against older versions of itself. With defeating Lee Sedol, who is one of the most skilled humans on the planet when it comes to the ancient game of Go, the documentary AlphaGo chronicles the greatest triumph of AI so far.

    Introdution and Q&A by Prof. Holger Hoos

    Holger Hoos, professor of Machine Learning at LIACS and fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), will introduce the movie. His research interests are focused on empirical algorithmics with applications in AI working on automated algorithm design. Prof. Hoos will provide answers in a short Q&A about the movie afterwards. The program ends with drinks and snacks at the FooBar in the Snellius Building (Niels Bohrweg 1, Leiden).

    Do not miss this unique opportunity to watch AlphaGo, the ultimate collision of AI and the most difficult game in the world.

  • Colloquium: An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory
    9 Jul 2014, 11:00 - 12:30, Snellius 312
    Abstract: For my research, I am using a theory from physics called Quantum Field Theory (QFT). QFT is a mathematical framework that provides a fundamental description of nature: all the currently observed fundamental particles and interactions (except gravity) are contained in the so-called Standard Model that is derived from it.
    The talk is aimed at computer scientists and mathematicians, who are unfamiliar with physics. Since QFT is a mathematical model, there will be some maths, but nothing fancy.

    Ben Ruijl is a PhD student in the group of Professor Jaap van den Herik.

    1 Dec 2011, 13:45 - 15:45, Snellius 402
    Nine teams of second-year BSc. students developed applications capable of
    recognizing UML Class Diagrams in images and converting them into XMI files. In
    software engineering, Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams are a meaningful
    medium to draft and document system design. For already delivered systems such
    diagrams can be found in architecture descriptions, mostly embedded in other
    documents as bitmaps. Such embedding in image files (JPG, PNG, BMP) makes them difficult to access for research, analysis and reuse by third parties.
