- Research in Computer Vision and its applications
- Husband and father of five children
What do I want to accomplish?
- You get something valuable out of it.
- i.e. not a time-waster
- You get to learn more about what others are doing
- You start talking and collaborating with other Ph.D. students.
- More faculty and students come and get same benefit
- We start building more collaborative research community
So, could you help make this happen?
1 - Are talks lined up yet? Yes, mostly.
2 - How different would the talk sessions be?
With a focus on A.I.
3 - Test out Slido
- Go to www.slido.com on any device

1/17 - “Square Peg, Round Hole, and a Hammer: Improperly Predicting Human Behavior” - Andrew Vlasic, Ph.D. (Data Scientist at BofA)
We will go through the logical restrictions of classical probability theory in its applications on predicting human behavior and describe a logical system that is not as restrictive but complete and stable enough to be applied to more accurately predict behavior.
