  • Title: Digitized music - Drum Pads using Arduino
    Speaker: Baabu Aravind Vellaian Selvarajan

    Date: Monday, 23 February 2015
    Time: 3:30pm - 4:30pm
    Place: Research and Innovation Centre 208

    Abstract: In early days, mostly hardware musical instruments like Drums, Guitar, Piano were used to create music. But now-a-days mostly software programs are used to create different type of musical pitch. The idea is to create a simplified small musical instrument. By making use of arduino hardware to create a musical instrument, i.e., drum-pads using some sensors and different drum beat pitches are allotted to those drum-pads using arduino. According to the hit made on sensors on drum-pads, it will create the drum beat. Future goal is to connect arduino with synthesizers to make changes in the effect of drum beats and playing the digitized music using those drum-pads.

  • Title: Cost-sensitive Reducts
    Speaker: Kuifei Liu

    Date: Wednesday, 25 February 2015
    Time: 3:30pm - 4:30pm
    Place: Research and Innovation Centre 208

    Abstract: Attribute reducts are an important concept in rough set theory. An attribute reduct preserves certain property of the given data. In real life, data acquisition and processing are associated with costs. The cost can be classified into two categories, the process cost and the result cost. Many existing studies focus on one type of cost and ignore combing both of them into a whole. In this talk, a general definition of a cost-sensitive attribute reduct is proposed. The objective is to find a reduct with the minimal cost, which is interpreted as an optimization problem. Consequently, different reducts are associated with different costs. In designing reduct construction algorithms, a heuristic algorithm is proposed to approximate the optimal cost-sensitive reduct.

  • Title: An Introduction to Pi-Calculus
    Speaker: Kevin Yu

    Date: Friday, 27 February 2015
    Time: 3:30pm - 4:30pm
    Place: Research and Innovation Centre 208

    Abstract: Pi-calculus is a model for high-level descriptions of interactions and communications for multiple independent processes. Used in concurrent programming, pi-calculus allows us to explain how different process streams can not only be executed simultaneously, but also interfere and act with one another. I will be presenting an introduction to pi-calculus and will talk about its syntax, applications, and implementation, and history. I will give examples of its use in the field and its effectiveness as well as comparisons to other forms of process calculi.
