The geographically distributed data centres problem (GDDC) is a naturally distributed resource allocation problem. The problem involves allocating a set of virtual machines (VM) amongst the data centres (DC) in each time period of an operating horizon.SpeakerName:Diarmuid GrimesBio:Senior Post-Doctoral ResearcherSeminar DetailsLocation:UCCDate:21/06/2017
The weighted degree heuristic is among the state of the art generic variable ordering strategies in constraint programming. However, it was often observed that when using large arity constraints, its efficiency deteriorates significantly since it loses its ability to discriminate variables.SpeakerName:Mohamed SialaBio:Post-Doctoral ResearcherSeminar DetailsLocation:UCCDate:21/06/2017
- Many of us are dealing with big data sets and carrying out computations that can be easily parallelised. MapReduce+Hadoop seems to offer a transparent way of doing so. During this (informal) seminar I will introduce the concept of MapReduce/Hadoop.SpeakerName:Luis QuesadaBio:Research Support OfficerSeminar DetailsLocation:UCCDate:24/05/2017
The Waternomics project aims to reduce water consumption of municipalities, corporations and domestic users by providing water managers and consumers with timely information about water usage and water availability. The project makes information about the water services system available to stakeholders in real-time in order to stimulate water saving.SpeakerName:Wassim DerguechBio:Wassim is a postdoctoral researcher at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics, National University of Ireland, Galway. In his research, he investigated the use of semantic web and related technologies for managing services and business processes applied to the e-government domain, customs clearanceInstitution:Seminar DetailsLocation:NUIGDate:27/01/2017
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). Mr. Ó Brolcháin has over 20 years of experience in the ICT industry in software management, analysis, research, development and consultancy.Institution:Seminar DetailsLocation:NUIGDate:28/10/2016
- 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
