  • Query-by-humming: a time series subsequence matching approach

    Dr. Panagiotis Papapetrou, University of London, UK

    Abstract:

    Suppose you hear a song but you cannot recall its name; one solution is to hum a short part of the song and perform a search on a large music repository to find the song you are looking for or even songs with similar melody. The main task of a Query-By-Humming (QBH) system is, given a hummed query song, to search a music database for the K most similar songs....

  • Probabilistic modeling for robotic manipulation under uncertainty

    Prof. Ville Kyrki, Aalto University, Department of Automation and Systems Technology

    Abstract:

    Manipulation skills are invaluable for future service robots. Manipulation in complex domestic environments is, however, a challenging task because in contrast to most current robotic applications the environment can not be known in advance. To cope with the uncertainty, the environment needs to be perceived using sensors...

  • Divergence estimation for machine learning

    Prof. Masashi Sugiyama, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan

    Abstract:

    Estimation of a divergence between two probability distributions from two sets of data samples is a fundamental challenge in statistical machine learning. An accurate divergence estimator can be used for various purposes such as two-sample homogeneity testing, unsupervised change-point detection in time series, and semi-supervised class balance estimation under class-...

    Aktiiviset käyttäjäyhteisöt, ketterä kehitys, digitaaliset jalanjäljet, vertaistuotanto ja edullinen verkon kautta tapahtuva ohjelmistojakelu kohtaavat sosiaalisessa mediassa tavalla, joka muuttaa käyttäjien osallistamisen pelisääntöjä nettipohjaisten palveluiden suunnittelussa. Väitöskirja kysyy, ovatko tärkeimmät käyttäjien osallistamisen...

  • Hiit-Wide Focus Area: Interactive Intent Modelling for Exploratory Search

    Dr. Tuukka Ruotsalo, HIIT

    Abstract:

    The talk discusses the efforts undertaken in one of the two HIIT-Wide Focus Areas: Augmented Research. It is an interdisciplinary research initiative in which researchers at HIIT combine their expertise in Human-Computer Interaction, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, and Ubiquitous Computing with a target to augment scientific information access using computation. The...
