The Impact of the Exploring Computer Science Instructional Model in Chicago Public Schools
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2016)As part of the Taste of Computing project, the Exploring Computer Science (ECS) instructional model has been expanded to many high schools in the Chicago Public Schools system. We report on initial outcomes showing that ... 
Improving Compiler Optimizations using Program Annotations
(20140620)In this work we describe a framework that combines the results of from program testing, formal verification and compiler optimization. We focus on how the informations manually provided by the developer, by crowd source ... 
Improving Web Security by Automated Extraction of Web Application Intent
(20120130)Over the past decade, the Web has been transformed from a collection of static HTML pages to a complex, distributed computing platform, as evidenced by the success of sites such as Facebook and YouTube. This transformation ... 
Independent Sets in Sparse Hypergraphs
(20140620)We study the independence number and chromatic number of hypergraphs which contain no copies of a fixed subgraph. Let H be a 3uniform hypergraph with maximum degree d. We show that if H contains no triangles, then the ... 
Inertia of Loewner matrices.
(Indiana University Mathematics Journal, 2016)Given positive numbers p_1 < p_2 < ... < p_n, and a real number r let L_r be the n by n matrix with its (i,j) entry equal to (p_i^rp_j^r)/(p_ip_j). A wellknown theorem of C. Loewner says that L_r is positive definite ... 
Inferential models: A framework for priorfree posterior probabilistic inference
(Taylor & Francis, 201303)Posterior probabilistic statistical inference without priors is an important but so far elusive goal. Fisher's ducial inference, Dempster{Shafer theory of belief func tions, and Bayesian inference with default priors ... 
Information Diffusion in Online Social Network
(20151021)Recently, online social networks have become increasingly important media. From online social networks, people get all kinds of information, from popular restaurants in town, to breaking news from the other side of the ... 
Information Extraction for Virus Classification and Robust Dimension Reduction
(20140620)As technology improves, big data are collected more easily and frequently. Especially plenty of genome sequences are discovered from laboratories as well as sound and images files are acquired from both academia and industry. ... 
Information Networks: Problems, Theories and Applications
(20160701)Nowadays, online information networks widely exist in our daily lives. The flourishing of various types of information networks have raised numerous challenging problems, as well as innovative applications. This dissertation ...
