U. Virginia seeks CPS candidates: 2 faculty positions, 2 research scientists, and 15 grad students

The University of Virginia has begun a multi-million dollar initiative to create a collaborative world-class center of research excellence in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Last year, SEAS announced an 8-faculty cluster hire in CPS and construction will begin this year on a new, collaborative space called the Link Lab.

In Press! Automatic Optimization of Localized Kernel Density Estimation For Hotspot Policing

Using ideas from image processing, we proposed a much better and a more efficient density estimation method. We achieved significant improvements over the widely used KDE. We are very excited to share our preliminary results at the IEEE ICMLA 2016 in California, United States in December.

In Press! Area-Specific Crime Prediction Model

We developed area-specific crime prediction models that take advantage of the variation of crime patterns between various regions. We will present our preliminary results at the IEEE ICMLA 2016 in California, United States in December.

Deep Learning for Rhetorical Analysis

The Department of Systems and Information Engineering at the University of Virginia seeks Graduate Research Assistants and Postdoctoral Research Associates to work in the laboratory of Dr. Matthew Gerber. We are working in the areas of deep learning and natural language processing, with emphasis on discourse-level structures (rhetorical relationships). Please contact us at predictivetech@virginia.edu if interested!
