    Gupta, Amrita (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-08-21)
    The detection of subtypes of complex diseases has important implications for diagnosis and treatment. Numerous prior studies have used data-driven approaches to identify clusters of similar patients, but it is not yet clear ...
  • Developing agile motor skills on virtual and real humanoids 

    Ha, Sehoon (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-08-21)
    Demonstrating strength and agility on virtual and real humanoids has been an important goal in computer graphics and robotics. However, developing physics- based controllers for various agile motor skills requires a ...
  • Adaptive learning in lasso models 

    Patnaik, Kaushik (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-08-20)
    Regression with L1-regularization, Lasso, is a popular algorithm for recovering the sparsity pattern (also known as model selection) in linear models from observations contaminated by noise. We examine a scenario where a ...
  • Mitigating information manipulation 

    Xing, Xinyu (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-11-23)
    The advent of information services introduces many advantages, for example, in trade, production and services. While making important descisons today, people increasingly rely on the information gleaned from such services. ...
