      Shahaf, Dafna (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-02-07)
      The amount of data in the world is increasing at incredible rates. Large-scale data has potential to transform almost every aspect of our world, from science to business; for this potential to be realized, we must turn ...
    • The Case for Microcontracts for Internet Connectivity 

      Valancius, Vytautas; Lumezanu, Cristian; Johari, Ramesh; Vazirani, Vijay (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010)
      This paper introduces microcontracts, which are contracts for "slices" of the Internet connectivity along dimensions such as time, destination, volume, and application type. Microcontracts are motivated by the observation ...

    • An Introduction to Additive Combinatorics Via 'Carries' 

      Diaconis, Persi (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-08-28)
      When numbers are added in the usual way, "carries" occur. The chance of a carry is about .45 (base 10). There are other choices of digits that lead to fewer carries (balanced digits). These balanced systems turn out to be ...
    • Orphan Master's Son and North Korea: A Reading and Discussion with Pulitzer Prize Winner Adam Johnson 

      Johnson, Adam (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-09-19)
      This year’s Pulitzer Prize winner in Fiction and Stanford Professor, Adam Johnson, will give a reading from his novel, The Orphan Master’s Son, which will be followed by a seminar on trauma narratives. The Orphan Master’s ...
    • Panel Discussion: Jay David Bolter, Celia Pearce, Henry Lowood ; Moderator, Michael Nitsche 

      Bolter, J. David; Pearce, Celia; Lowood, Henry; Nitsche, Michael (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-02-05)
    • Perceiving the 3D World from Images 

      Savarese, Silvio (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-11-15)
      When we look at an environment such as a coffee shop, we don't just recognize the objects in isolation, but rather perceive a rich scenery of the 3D space, its objects and all the relations among them. This allows us to ...
    • Players are artists too 

      Lowood, Henry (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-02-05)
      It is easy to provoke debate by posing a simple question, such as, "Are digital games a form of art?" A less controversial observation would be that it takes a lot of artists to make a digital game. This dichotomy between ...
    • Presenting HTML structure in audio: User satisfaction with audio hypertext
