  • The Effect of Epigenetic Blocking on Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithms

    Date: July 14, 2022 | 4pm - 5pm EST
    Location: Building 32-G449, Patil/Kiva
    Sizhe Yuen is a final year PhD Student at the University of Southampton. His work focuses on the development of Evolutionary Algorithms using modern biological concepts from the Extended Evolutionary Synthesis. This talk will focus on the concept of epigenetic inheritance. Using a contemporary biological framework based on the Extended Evolutionary Synthesis, epigenetic inheritance is shown as a missing gap despite being a key building block in modern interpretations of how evolution occurs.

  • Natural Language Processing for All

    Date: June 4, 2021 | 12pm - 1pm EST
    Location: Webinar
    MIT Quest AI Roundtable: Nearly 7,000 languages are spoken in the world today, but fewer than two dozen have the massive training data required to build AI applications like language and speech-to-text translation. The problem is compounded by a shortage of computing resources in much of the world. This panel will explore ways of making natural language processing more efficient, interpretable, and linguistically informed, to reach speakers of all languages.
