<mediaitem title="Deep Learning With Multiplicative Interactions">
Deep networks can be learned efficiently from unlabeled data. The layers of
representation are learned one at a time using a simple learning module,
called a "Restricted Boltzmann Machine" that has only one layer of latent
variables. The values of the latent variables of one module form the data for
training the next module. Although deep networks have been quite successful
for tasks such as object recognition, information retrieval, and modeling
motion capture data, the simple learning modules do not have multiplicative
interactions which are very useful for some types of data.
The talk will show how a third-order energy function can be factorized to
yield a simple learning module that retains advantageous properties of a
Restricted Boltzmann Machine such as very simple exact inference and a very
simple learning rule based on pair-wise statistics. The new module contains
multiplicative interactions that are useful for a variety of unsupervised
learning tasks. Researchers at the University of Toronto have been using this
type of module to extract oriented energy from image patches and dense flow
fields from image sequences. The new module can also be used to allow motions
of a particular style to be achieved by blending autoregressive models of
motion capture data.

<mediaitem title="The Best Algorithms are Randomized Algorithms">
For many problems, randomized algorithms are either the fastest algorithm or the
simplest algorithm; sometimes they even provide the only known algorithm.
Randomized algorithms have become so prevalent that deterministic algorithms
could be viewed as a curious special case. In this talk I will describe some
startling examples of randomized algorithms for solving some optimization
problems on graphs.

<mediaitem title="QIP=PSPACE">
The interactive proof system model of computation is a cornerstone of complexity
theory, and its quantum computational variant has been studied in quantum
complexity theory for the past decade. In this talk I will discuss an exact
characterization of the power of quantum interactive proof systems that I
recently proved in collaboration with Rahul Jain, Zhengfeng Ji, and Sarvagya
Upadhyay. The characterization states that the collection of computational
problems having quantum interactive proof systems consists precisely of those
problems solvable with an ordinary classical computer using a polynomial amount
of memory (or QIP = PSPACE in complexity-theoretic terminology). This
characterization implies the striking fact that quantum computing does not
provide any increase in computational power over classical computing in the
context of interactive proof systems.
</p><p>I will not assume that the audience for this talk has any familiarity with
either quantum computing or complexity theory; and to be true to the spirit of
the interactive proof system model, I hope to make this talk as interactive as
possible -- I will be happy to explain anything related to the talk that I can
that people are interested in learning about.

<mediaitem title="An Introduction to Vector Graphics Libraries with Cairo">
Cairo is an open source, cross platform, vector graphics library with the
ability to output to many kinds of surfaces, including PDF, SVG and PNG
surfaces, as well as X-Window, Win32 and Quartz 2D backends.
Unlike the raster graphics used with programmes and libraries such as The
Gimp and ImageMagick, vector graphics are not defined by grids of pixels,
but rather by a collection of drawing operations. These operations detail
how to draw lines, fill shapes, and even set text to create the desired
image. This has the advantages of being infinitely scalable, smaller in file
size, and simpler to express within a computer programme.
This talk will be an introduction to the concepts and metaphors used by
vector graphics libraries in general and Cairo in particular.
