    Data Science for Game Development | Dean Wyatte, Activision

    1:30pm to 2:30pm

    Location: 

    Harvard University, Maxwell Dworkin G115, 33 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA

    Abstract: Online games are capable of generating vast amounts of data ranging from aggregate player behavior to low-level instrumentation from the game engine and back end services. Modern games are also designed from large amounts of data -- think textures, models, and photogrammetry; animation, physical systems, and motion capture. This talk will describe the role of data science in supporting these multiple stages of game development. Come learn about some of the specific challenges of making games at Activision and the data-driven solutions that the Activision team...

    Machine Learning for Materials Discovery | Julia Ling, Citrine Informatics

    1:30pm to 2:30pm

    Location: 

    Harvard University, TBA

    Abstract: Materials science presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities for machine learning methods in terms of data size, data sparsity, available domain knowledge, and multi-scale physics.  In this talk, Dr. Ling will discuss how machine learning can be used to accelerate materials discovery through a sequential learning workflow.  You'll examine how domain knowledge can be integrated into data-driven models, the role of uncertainty quantification in driving exploration of new design candidates, and how to forecast the impact of a data-driven...
