We are a computer science research group led by Ce Zhang with help from many close collaborators and friends.
|Master Thesis: Spring 2018
We are offering a series of master thesis in the spring semester of 2018. Drop us an email at email@example.com if you are interested. Some sample topics:
Applications: data-driven astrophysics, meteorology, social sciences, proteomics, reinforcement learning for telescope array control, self-driving etc.
Systems: scalable deep learning over a thousand GPUs, model compression for deep learning, in-database machine learning, blockchain and cryptocurrency as general computation platform, system control with predictive models, etc.
Machine Learning: foundations behind system relaxation: decentralized learning, low precision communication, asynchrony; multi-task learning etc.
- Nora Hollenstein & Jonathan Rotsztejn‘s system ranked first in the relation classification subtask among 28 international teams in SemEval 2018 (Task 7 Subtask 1) ! Their system also ranks top 1 and top 2 for two other relation extraction subtasks (Task 7 Subtask 2).
