Seminars and Colloquia

  • Basheer Qolomany, “The Role of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Complex Systems” - When: Friday, April 28, 2:00 PM Where: CBLS 100 Who: Basheer Qolomany, University of Nebraska at Kearney The Role of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Complex Systems Abstract: Current methods for diagnosing PAD require specialized vascular laboratory tests and do not allow natural environment detection, monitoring, or management of chronic PAD disease. The research […]
  • Shaun Wallace, “Human-Centric Systems for Quality Data” - When: Wednesday, April 19, 10:00 am Where: Ranger 208 Abstract: Information is often interpreted through tools, recently AI tools which sit closer to the user than the source information. From ChatGPT to instant answers on Google search and voice services on Siri and Alexa, these tools are only as good as their sources, especially for […]
  • Haihan Yu, “A Composite Empirical Likelihood Method for Time Series in Frequency Domain Inference” - When: Mar 3rd, 11:00-12:00 Where: Tyler 053 Zoom link: Abstract: Frequency domain analysis of time series is often difficult, as periodogram-based statistics involve non-linear averages with complicated variances. Due to the latter, nonparametric approximations from resampling or empirical likelihood (EL) are useful. However, current versions of periodogram-based EL for time series are highly restricted: […]
