  • Tutorial: Motion Planning for Dynamic Environments

    This all-day tutorial introduces the audience to motion planning algorithms and associated mathematical concepts. Prior experience in this area is not assumed. The morning part starts from the basics of collision-free path planning by introducing geometric representations, transformations, configuration spaces, sampling-based motion planning, and combinatorial motion planning. The afternoon part covers methods that address many concerns which arise in practice when the robot's environment is changing or is incompletely specified. This falls under the heading of planning in dynamic environments. Fundamental limitations of planning in this context are discussed, followed by a survey of several successful approaches from specific contexts, such as planning for humanoids, autonomous vehicles, and virtual agents.

  • Big Learning: Algorithms, Systems, and Tools for Learning at Scale

    Driven by cheap commodity storage, fast data networks, rich structured models, and the increasing desire to catalog and share our collective experiences in real-time, the scale of many important learning problems has grown well beyond the capacity of traditional sequential systems. These “Big Learning” problems arise in many domains including bioinformatics, astronomy, recommendation systems, social networks, computer vision, web search and online advertising. Simultaneously, parallelism has emerged as a dominant widely used computational paradigm in devices ranging from energy efficient mobile processors, to desktop supercomputers in the form of GPUs, to massively scalable cloud computing services. The Big Learning setting has attracted intense interest across industry and academia, with active research spanning diverse fields ranging from machine learning and databases to large scale distributed systems and programming languages. However because the Big Learning setting is being studied by experts of these various communities, there is a need for a common venue to discuss recent progress, to identify pressing new challenges, and to exchange new ideas.

    This workshop aims to:

    * Bring together parallel and distributed system builders in industry and academia, machine learning experts, and end users to identify the key challenges, opportunities, and myths of Big Learning. What REALLY changes from the traditional learning setting when faced with terabytes or petabytes of data?
    * Solicit practical case studies, demos, benchmarks and lessons-learned presentations, and position papers.
    * Showcase recent and ongoing progress towards parallel ML algorithms
    * Provide a forum for exchange regarding tools, software, and systems that address the Big Learning problem.
    * Educate the researchers and practitioners across communities on state-of-the-art solutions and their limitations, particularly focusing on key criteria for selecting task- and domain-appropriate platforms and algorithms.
