Many network design problems arising in the fields of transportation, distribution and logistics require clients to be connected to facilities through a set of carriers subject to distance and capacity constraints.SpeakerName:Alejandro ArbelaezBio:Postdoctoral researcherSeminar DetailsLocation:UCCDate:18/01/2017
- Complexity analysis vs. engineering design in CSP algorithms: Contravening conventional wisdom again
In this work we compare simple and `advanced' algorithms that have been used to perform various functions in connection with constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs).
- A perennial problem in hybrid backtrack CSP search is how much local consistency processing should be done to achieve the best efficiency. This can be divided into two separate questions: (1) how much work should be done before the actual search begins, i.e.
The European Data Portal (EDP Link) harvests the metadata of Public Sector Information available on public data portals across European countries. Information regarding the provision of data and the benefits of reusing data is also included.SpeakerName:Niall Ó BrolcháinBio:Niall Ó Brolcháin (Male) is a researcher in the eGov unit at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at NUI Galway (formerly DERI).

- Ridesharing schemes, which match passengers to private car journeys with spare seats, are becoming popular for reducing costs, emissions and congestion.SpeakerName:Vincent ArmantBio:Post Doctoral Researcher, UCCInstitution:Seminar DetailsLocation:UCCDate:12/10/2016
In many fields like recommender systems and multi-objective optimization, one wants to reason over user preferences. Often it is difficult or excessively time-consuming to elicit all user preferences.SpeakerName:Anne-Marie GeorgeBio:PhD Student, Insight, UCCInstitution:Seminar DetailsLocation:UCCDate:12/10/2016
Hypergraphical games provides a compact model of a network of self-interested agents, each involved in simultaneous sub-games with its neighbors.SpeakerName:Mohamed WahbiBio:Post Doctoral ResearcherInstitution:Seminar DetailsLocation:UCCDate:19/10/2016

- Title: Improved Recommendation of Photo-Taking Locations using Virtual Ratings - Authors: Mesut KAYA, Derek Bridge - Abstract: We consider the task of collaborative recommendation of photo-taking locations. We use datasets of geotagged pho- tos. We map their locations to a location grid using a geo- hashing algorithm, resulting in a user × location implicit feedback matrix.SpeakerName:Mesut KAYA and Francisco J PeñaBio:two PhD students from Insight Centre for Data AnalyticsInstitution:Seminar DetailsLocation:UCCDate:19/08/2016
- In epidemic modeling, state filtering is an excellent tool for enhancing the performance of traditional epidemic models. We introduce a novel state filter algorithm to further improve the performance of state-of-the-art approaches based on Susceptible-Infected- Recovered (SIR) models.SpeakerName:Weipeng HuangBio:PhD Student at Insight Centre for Data AnalyticsInstitution:Seminar DetailsLocation:UCCDate:10/08/2016
