EAS Seminar: Modeling NY/NJ Harbor Storm Surge Flood Hazards and Influences of Barriers and Natural Systems Apr 10, 2014 from 12:30 PM to 01:30 PMMR 107,
Hurricane Sandy caused coastal flooding in Northern New Jersey and New York City that exceeded any levels reached in over three hundred years of the region’s history. Dr. Philip Orton will explain the physics behind the record-setting flooding, and then place Sandy’s flood heights in the context of (1) historically increasing storm tides and sea levels, (2) the hydrodynamic model-based FEMA flood hazard mapping/assessment for present-day sea levels, and (3) our similar assessment for future sea levels.
Mathematics Colloquium: Kamiar Rahnama Rad (Columbia University), "High dimensional information processing with limited resources in neural systems" Feb 05, 2013 from 01:00 PM to 01:50 PMNA 6113,
Abstract: As is the case in many information processing systems, in the nervous system information processing is performed by multiple neuronal networks each having access to different types and amounts of information. To understand information processing in the brain, we should thus study learning approaches that are based on computationally efficient information sharing methods. This is the focus of this talk. The first part of the talk will focus on a network of observers making local observations concerning an unknown vector. Each node faces a local identification problem, in the sense that it cannot consistently estimate the parameter in isolation. Employing a novel local message passing algorithm, I will show that despite local identification problems, local estimates can be as efficient as any ideal global estimator. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss optimal decoding, information rates and dimensionality reduction of high dimensional spatio-temporally correlated spiking activities. In particular, I will show that neural populations with strong history-dependent (non-Poisson) effects carry exactly the same information as do simpler equivalent populations of non-interacting Poisson neurons with matched firing rates. Finally, I will present a scalable and robust method for extracting as much information as possible from the simultaneously recorded activity of tens of thousands of neurons. The methodological innovation of our work is to use a regularizer that is robust to occasional discontinuities, and nevertheless if there is enough evidence in the data, enforces similarity between nearby neurons, all in an adaptive fashion.
