More than 140 researchers attended the Sublinear Algorithms Workshop that was held from January 7-9, 2016, at the Homewood Campus of Johns Hopkins University. Hosted by the Department of Computer Science, this was the first ever sublinear algorithms workshop at JHU; it included sublinear-time algorithms (e.g., property testing and distribution testing), sublinear-space algorithms (e.g., sketching […]
Suchi Saria, assistant professor in the Whiting School of Engineering’s Department of Computer Science, has been named one of the “AI 10 to Watch” in 2015 by IEEE Intelligent Systems magazine. This list, which comes out biennially, recognizes young scientists (all of whom received their PhDs in the last five years) who are doing cutting-edge […]
At the 2016 Science of Learning Symposium, CS Professor Jason Eisner shares his current research on how machine learning algorithms can serve as a model of the human learner, within new educational technology that must decide where to challenge the student and where to provide scaffolding.

The Daily Record reported on Friday’s announcement of the creation of the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare. Read the complete story.
CS Assistant Professor Vladimir Braverman likens the algorithms that he and his team are inventing to deal with massive amounts of streaming data to the hammers and picks that miners use to remove precious metals from the Earth. “In order for us to extract patterns and valuable information that are hiding in all that data, […]
Hours before the kickoff of the biannual HopHacks hackathon on Friday, organizers will welcome two members of the Silicon Valley tech accelerator Y Combinator, which has served as an incubator and fundraiser for tech giants such as DropBox, Airbnb, and Reddit. Y Combinator partner Dalton Caldwell and hardware specialist Luke Iseman will host a talk, […]
