You are not afraid to think outside your comfort zone and stick with a problem until you find a solution. We’ll help prepare you to be a collaborator, an algorithmic thinker, and a data-fluent innovator who will thrive in a rapidly changing field.
The Department of Computer Science and Statistics provides a supportive, well-integrated center of multidisciplinary learning and research. Our faculty integrate computer science, statistics, data science, and cybersecurity while reaching beyond departmental boundaries to collaborate with scientists, artists, health care researchers, historians, and engineers across the colleges at URI. Our students grow as professionals, scholars, and citizens because they receive a strong foundation and hands-on experience in the field.
Announcements and Jobs
- Kelum Gajamannage, Low-rank data imputation using Hadamard deep autoencoders, with applications to fragmented trajectory reconstruction of collective motion (10/9/2023) - When: Friday, October 13 at 4:00 pm. Where: Fascitelli 040 Abstract: Data imputation is an essential preprocessing step in statistical learning that is to be performed before any technical analysis is conducted on partially observed data. Data originating from natural phenomena is low-rank due to diverse natural dependencies that a low-rank technique should primarily emphasize […]
- Antonios Argyriou, Passive Wireless Sensing: Implications on Privacy and Counter-Measures (10/2/2023) - When: Monday, October 30 at 1:00 pm. Where: Quinn 211. Who: Dr. Antonios Argyriou, Associate Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Thessaly, Greece. Abstract: Emitters of wireless signals are all around us 24/7. These wireless signals contain digital information that may be the target of different types of cyber security attacks. However, […]
- Ming-Hui Chen, A New Statistical Monitoring Approach Based on Linear Mixed-Effects Models: Application to Energy Usage Management on a Large University Campus (10/2/2023) - When: Friday, October 27th, from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM Where: ENGR 040 Who: Professor Ming-Hui Chen, Department of Statistics, University of Connecticut Abstract: In this paper, we introduce a novel application of the linear mixed-effects model (LMM) repurposed for statistical monitoring. We develop an efficient EM algorithm to handle rapid estimation, especially in scenarios […]
