The next meeting of the INFORMATION MODELING Seminar will be held on November 11, 2018, at 14:00 in Room 276 of IMI. A talk on: Towards Future Communication Ecosystems: Where Networking Technology Meets Microeconomics and User Research will be delivered by Prof. Peter Reichl, Head of Research Group Cooperative Systems, University of Vienna, Austria. Everybody is invited. Abstract. Over the last years, research in telecommunication networking has evolved far beyond traditional communications engineering and rather aims at integrating the perspectives of a broad variety of stakeholders into a holistic ecosystem framework. In this talk, we will discuss key aspects of this interdisciplinary approach and illustrate it with the help of some results from the area of Quality of Experience (QoE) as an interesting example of a corresponding research field, before we briefly outline the impact of the underlying paradigm change on the current evolution from the Internet of Things (IoT) towards an "Internet of People" (IoP). CV: Peter Reichl holds a Master’s degree from University of Cambridge (UK) and a PhD degree in computer science from RWTH Aachen (Germany). 2001-2013 he was working as Key Researcher for "User-centered Interaction and Communication Economics" at FTW Telecommunications Research Center Vienna (Austria). 2010 – 2013 he was holder of the SISCOM and RBUCE WEST International Research Chairs at [...]
The next meeting of the INFORMATION MODELING Seminar will be held on October 4, 2018, at 14:00 in Room 578 of IMI. A talk on: A New Monte Carlo Algorithm for Linear Algebraic Systems Based on the "Walk on Equations" Algorithm will be delivered by Assist. Prof. Dr. Venelin Todorov, IMI - BAS. Everybody is invited. Abstract. Many scientific and engineering applications are based on the problems of solving systems of linear algebraic equations. The computation time for very large problems, or for finding solutions in real-time, can be prohibitive and this prevents the use of many established algorithms. Monte Carlo algorithms give statistical estimates of the required solution, by performing random sampling of a random variable, whose mathematical expectation is the desired solution. A [...]
