Guest Speakers and subjects:
Shah Muhammad Hamdi is a Ph.D. student (3rd year) in the Department of Computer Science of Georgia State University. He works in Data Mining Lab (DMLab) under the supervision of Dr. Rafal Angryk. His research interests are machine learning, data mining and deep learning, more specifically, finding interesting patterns from real-life graphs and time series data. His research finds applications in the fields of solar weather analysis and neurological disease prediction. Before joining the DMLab for the Ph.D., he worked one year as a Lecturer in Computer Science in Northern University Bangladesh, Dhaka, Bangladesh. He received his Bachelor degree in Computer Science in 2014 from Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology (RUET), Rajshahi, Bangladesh.
The training process for modern deep neural networks requires big data and large amounts of computational power. In this talk, Robert will cover what he implemented during his summer internship. Combining HPCC Systems and Google’s TensorFlow, Robert created a parallel stochastic gradient descent algorithm to provide a basis for future deep neural network research and to enhance the distributed neural network training capabilities in HPCC Systems.
Robert Kennedy is a first year Ph.D. student in CS at Florida Atlantic University with research interests in Deep Learning and parallel and distributed computing. His current research is in improving distributed deep learning by implementing and optimizing distributed algorithms.
Aramis’s project will make it easy for anyone in robotics around the world to ingest data from common robotic sensors into an HPCC Systems platform for use in data analysis. In this Tech Talk, Aramis will be speaking about his work on the autonomous agricultural robot and implementing new packages for the Robotics Operating System to interface with HPCC Systems for big data analysis.
Aramis Tanelus is a programmer and senior at American Heritage High School where he is the lead programmer for the Advanced Robotics Team. He works with the ROS operating system collecting data from robots developed by the team and turns it into actionable output to help with robotic tasks. He currently is an intern in Boca Raton working on a project to develop software interfaces between robotic sensors and the HPCC Systems platform.
