Automated Deployment – Chameleon Cloud Webinar

July 14, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Previous webinars have shown how to automate the orchestration of an experiment from allocating the resources to building the lab to running the experiment and tearing it all down using Heat Templates. Chameleon is a research platform in which experimenters can make on-demand or advanced reservations for resources. Some experiments require resources -- GPUs, FPGAs -- that are both scarce and popular so users must reserve them well in advance. Other experiments require large portions of the testbed and are…

Seminar: Neural networks as cognitive models of syntax

April 8, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Hanes Hall, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Chapel Hill, NC 27514 United States
+ Google Map

Speakers of a language generalize their knowledge of syntax in a systematic way to constructions they have never encountered before. This observation has motivated the influential position in linguistics that humans are innately endowed with syntax-specific inductive biases. The applied success of deep learning systems that are not designed with such biases invites a reconsideration of this position. In this talk, Prof. Tal Linzen, Assistant Professor of Linguistics and Data Science at NYU, will review work that uses paradigms from…

The Data Shows Government Website Accessibility and Usability Go Hand-in-Hand

February 8, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The National Consortium for Data Science (NCDS), in partnership with Interpersonal Frequency, will host a free webinar, "The Data Shows Government Website Accessibility and Usability Go Hand-in-Hand," on Wednesday, February 8 at 12 PM ET. Digital accessibility—whether it’s billed as “Section 508 compliance,” “ADA compliance,” or “WCAG compliance”—is top-of-mind for government organizations, and rightly so. In the same way that their physical buildings must welcome everyone in the community, their online spaces should be open, easily accessible, and useful to…

DataBytes: Five Ways That Data Visualizations Can Mislead (And How To Fix Them)

February 14, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The National Consortium for Data Science (NCDS), is pleased to announce the return of DataBytes, a free webinar series designed to showcase diverse and innovative work in data science. Visualizations allow people to readily analyze and communicate data. However, many common visualization designs lead to engaging imagery but false conclusions. By understanding what people see when they look at a visualization, we can design visualizations that support more accurate data analysis and avoid unnecessary biases. Join UNC Computer Science Assistant…
