The evaluation of courses takes place this week. Accordingly, I have evaluation sheets in my office. Since we have no regular classes, we will do the evaluation as follows.

Please come to my office (E1 3, room 511.1) on Wednesday, January 8, between 15:30 and 16:30 to fill out and return the form.

Afterwards, the envelope with the forms shell be handed to the Studienkoordination, E1 3 (208/209) by a student. For that purpose, I need a volunteer among you who can stay from 15:30 to 16:30 and take care of it.

If you cannot come at the specified date and time, you can pick up a sheet earlier and hand it to the responsible student directly before Wednesday, 16:30 (you will have to organize how to reach each other yourself). You will be able to reach me whenever my door is open.

5-Minute Talk Slides

The submission page for slides is open again, until Wednesday 12:00. You can therefore still update your slides to the newest version.

5 Minute Talks

We have two slots for the 5 minute talks:

  • Wednesday, December 4 at 15:15 - 16:00
  • Thursday, December 5 at 15:15 - 16:00

Both sessions will take place in E1 3, room 528.

5 Minute Talks

We now have a Doodle in order to find a time slot for the 5 minute talks.

Due to the number of participants, we will need two consecutive time slots, i.e., a total time of two hours.

You can reach the poll with the following link.

Since we will need a quick turn-over during the session, it will not be possible to change computers.

Please prepare your slides as pdf. You then can send these files to me using the submission form on this website.

From these files I will compile a single pdf.

 

For the preparation of the slides, please keep in mind that the main purpose is to motivate your topic and to ''sell'' it to the other participants.

Algorithms for Big Data

This seminar is about algorithms that can handle very large amounts of data.
The amount of available data oftentimes vastly exceeds the size of the available fast memory.
Examples are data collected in scientific experiments from biology of physics such as, for instance, data recorded by large scale telescopes.
In order to process these data, we cannot simply apply our usual algorithms.

Instead of storing all data in fast memory, we have to either process the data right away without storing them long term or to store them in slow memory such as for example disks or tapes.
We then access some of the data (i.e, we copy them into fast memory).

The seminar will cover topics including hashing, Bloom filters, probabilistic counting, and principal component analysis. We intend to cover both the practical applications and the theoretical foundation of the concepts and algorithms.


Requirements:

There are no formal requirements for participation.
For many topics, a good understanding of probabilities is useful.

 

Modalities:

The seminar is a block-seminar. Please sign up in the seminar assignment system.

Afterwards, there will be a doodle poll to determine the date and place of an initial kick-off event. At the kick-off event, we will clarify specific topics and the organization of the seminar.

During the semester, there will be one lecture on how to give talks, which will be in the end of October or beginning of November, followed by 5-min talks given by the participants about their chosen topics, two weeks after the “how to give talks” talk. We will fix the precise dates and modalities at the kick-off meeting.

 

The actual seminar (i.e., the talks of the participants) will be organized as a block-event (two whole days) which will take place after the lecture period of the winter term 2019/20.
