CSoI Highlights


  • The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, has selected Andrea Goldsmith as the 2018 recipient of its Distinguished Alumni Award in Electrical Engineering. The award recognizes the valuable contributions of its most distinguished alumni. Congratulations Andrea!

  • Andrea Goldsmith is also the recipient of the 2017 WIC Mentorship Award. The award recognizes members of the IEEE ComSoc who have made a strong commitment to mentoring WICE members, have had a significant positive impact on their mentees’ education and career, and who, through their mentees, have advanced communications engineering.https://news.stanford.edu/thedish/2017/10/30/andrea-goldsmith-wins-award-for-mentoring-women-in-engineering/

  • CSoI graduate student Pablo Robles-Granda (Purdue) received his PhD and has joined Notre Dame as a research specialist in Computer Science & Engineering. Congratulations Pablo! Pablo will be presenting an online talk for the Center on Thursday, November 16 at 3:00 p.m.

  • The Center for the Science of Information and the Department of Computer Science at Purdue have been hosting a regular seminar during the fall semester with a number of internal and external speakers. The goal of the seminar to is explore recent progress on the limits and information in matrix-based problem formulations, algorithms, and how they are applied to data---all broadly construed. The videos of the talks should appear on the Center's YouTube channel shortly after they are presented. Topics have included: solving non-linear optimization problems in high-precision arithmetic, metrics to identify "fake news", asymptotic limits of spectral clustering, and fast algorithms for high-performance computing. For information regarding upcoming seminars please visit our website https://www.soihub.org/

  • CSoI students and faculty interested in developing a topic module teaching others about your research, a new method, or concept? The Center continues to build its science of information education offerings, and would like to include your topic: https://www.soihub.org/resources/learning-hub/ Contact Brent - education@soihub.org
