March 18 Colloquium: Probabilistic Hashing for Scalable and Sustainable Machine Learning -- Sameh Gobriel

Talk Abstract: Large scale machine learning applications are constantly dealing with datasets at TB scale and the anticipation is that soon it will reach PB levels. At this scale conventional algorithms fail and simple data mining operations such as search, learning, clustering, etc. become challenging. In this talk, I will start with a basic introduction to probabilistic hashing (or fingerprinting) and the classical LSH algorithm.  Then I will introduce some of my recent work of using “Randomized Algorithms” for large-scale AI optimizations, and some of my recent research in making large-scale machine learning practical.
