Florence Hudson & John Moore: Internet2 Community Support for the Regional BD Hubs|The community provides information and entertaining discussion on infrastructure, researcher engagement, the data sharing spoke workshop, and how the Internet2 member-based collaborative innovation community is participating in distributed big data and analytics opportunities and innovations.
Florence Hudson is Senior Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer at Internet2, a not for profit consortium of 315+ academic institutions and 150+ research organizations in industry, networking and government.
John Moore is currently the Associate Vice President of Network Architecture and Planning for Internet2, where he leads a talented group of engineers responsible for developing the next generation infrastructure that supports the Internet2 community’s quest for discovery and innovation
Claris Castillo & Alex Feltus: SciDAS|National CyberInfrastructure for Scientific Data Analysis at Scale. SciDAS is designed to improve flexibility and accessibility to national resources, helping researchers more effectively use a broader array of these resources. SciDAS is developed using large-scale systems biology and hydrology datasets, but is extensible to many other domains.
Alex Feltus is an Associate Professor in Clemson University’s Dept. of Genetics & Biochemistry and CEO of Allele Systems LLC.
Claris Castillo is a Senior Computational and Networked Systems Researcher in the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) at UNC Chapel Hill.

Internet2 Community Support for the Regional BD Hubs
Thank you all. If you want to provide a demo to the group, please contact Lea Shanley email@example.com and Karl Gustafson.
Le Song is an assistant professor in the Department of Computational Science and Engineering, College of Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. in Machine Learning from University of Sydney and NICTA in 2008, and then conducted his post-doctoral research in the Department of Machine Learning, Carnegie Mellon University, between 2008 and 2011. Before he joined Georgia Institute of Technology in 2011, he was a research scientist at Google briefly. His principal research direction is machine learning, especially kernel methods and probabilistic graphical models for large scale and complex problems, arising from artificial intelligence, network analysis, computational biology and other interdisciplinary domains. He is the recipient of the Recsys’16 Deep Learning Workshop Best Paper Award, AISTATS'16 Best Student Paper Award, IPDPS'15 Best Paper Award, NSF CAREER Award’14, NIPS’13 Outstanding Paper Award, and ICML’10 Best Paper Award. He has also served as the area chair or senior program committee for many leading machine learning and AI conferences such as ICML, NIPS, AISTATS and AAAI, and the action editor for JMLR.
Structured data, such as sequences, trees, graphs and hypergraphs, are prevalent in a number of real world applications such as social network analysis, recommendation systems and knowledge base reasoning. The availability of large amount of such structured data has posed great challenges for the machine learning community. How to represent such data to capture their similarities or differences? How to learn predictive models from a large amount of such data, and efficiently? How to learn to generate structured data de novo given certain desired properties?
In this talk, I will present a structure embedding framework (Structure2Vec), an effective and scalable approach for representing structured data based on the idea of embedding latent variable models into a feature space, and learning such feature space using discriminative information. Interestingly, Structure2Vec extracts features by performing a sequence of nested nonlinear operations in a way similar to graphical model inference procedures, such as mean field (or convolution over graph) and belief propagation. In large scale applications involving materials design, recommendation system and knowledge reasoning, Structure2Vec consistently produces the-state-of-the-art predictive performance. In some cases, Structure2Vec is able to produces a more accurate model yet being 10,000 times smaller.

Le Song Machine Learning in Recommendation Systems, Knowledge Graphs, and Materials Research. Can the same approach be used in all three?
Yes, using graph vectorization as an alternative to matrix vectorization

Applications of Analytics and Machine Learning in Energy Industry-Academia Workshop
The goal is to connect industry partners with academic researchers in the domains of Energy: Power, Smart Grid, etc as well as Big Data and Data Science. Speakers will be specifically selected to share their perspective on high-impact applications or challenges surrounding the use of data science, analytics, informatics, and machine learning in the Energy space. Attendees will come from academic research institutions across the 16 states that comprise the South Big Data Innovation Hub and industrial partners across the country. Participants will engage in active scoping and round-table discussions in order to build partnerships across high-impact application verticals.
Georgia Institute of Technology, Klaus Advanced Computing Building, Atlanta, GA
The South Big Data Innovation Hub accelerates partnerships among people in business, academia, and government that apply data science and analytics to societal and economic challenges important to the region. The South Hub is part of a national network of four Big Data Innovation Hubs in the United States, and individually includes more than 500 members from both the private and public sectors.
