Enabling one-handed input for wearable computing
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-05-30)
A new evolution of computing is emerging around wearable technologies. Wearable computing has been a topic of research for years. However, we are beginning to see adoption by consumers and non-researchers due to advances ...
Integrating reinforcement learning into a programming language
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-06-26)
Reinforcement learning is a promising solution to the intelligent agent problem, namely, given the state of the world, which action should an agent take to maximize goal attainment. However, reinforcement learning algorithms ...
Robust adaptation of natural language processing for language variation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-01-09)
Natural language processing (NLP) technology has been applied in various domains, ranging from social media and digital humanities to public health. Unfortunately, the adoption of existing NLP techniques in these areas ...
Algorithms and analysis for non-convex optimization problems in machine learning
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-05-10)
In this thesis, we propose efficient algorithms and provide theoretical analysis through the angle of spectral methods for some important non-convex optimization problems in machine learning. Specifically, we focus on two ...
LP and SDP extended formulations: Lower bounds and approximation algorithms
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-05-24)
In this thesis we study various aspects of linear and semidefinite programs including their limitations in approximating various combinatorial optimization problems as well as applications of these paradigms in solving ...
