By: Andrew Fitzgibbon - Microsoft (Cambridge) Abstract: In 1957, many (most?) computer programs were the expression of mathematical formulae in machine instructions. It was tedious, so Backus and colleagues wrote the “FORmula TRANslator”, perhaps the first modern compiler. FORTRAN revolutionised the writing of numerical code and the richness of tasks the computer could perform. Today, ...

By: Simon Peyton Jones - Microsoft Research (Cambridge) Abstract: Automatic differentiation (AD) is clearly cool. And it has become useful (as well as cool) recently, because it essentially implements the back-propagation step that is key to learning in neural networks; and it is used extensively in many other machine learning contexts. But as well as ... Read more about "IC Colloquium: Automatic differentiation for dummies"

Abstract Modern-day software is increasingly complex and software engineering is commonly accepted as a challenging, error-prone task. Consequently, software bugs are prevalent, incurring detrimental financial costs and often risking human lives. Program analyses provide rigorous and effective means to automated bug detection, and are becoming an integral part of the software development process. In this ...

Abstract Personal genomics is becoming increasingly popular, but mounting privacy concerns threaten to impede adoption. We propose a new, privacy-focused model for personal genomics that employs cryptography and decentralization to secure personal genomic data and outline various policy issues that should be considered if this model is to be adopted. Bio Dennis Grishin is CSO ... Read more about "Genomic data privacy in the age of personal genomics"
