Today, February 22nd, our Student Chapter was thrilled to organize its second event for Spring 2019 semester. Our speaker has been Dr. Peter Haas who is a Professor at College of Information and Computer Sciences at University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His presentation was entitled: “Temporally-Biased Sampling Schemes for Online Model Management”. With his talk, Dr. Haas emphasized on the importance of having accurate data over time and presented his developed methods and approaches in order to achieve this goal. His presentation included very interesting and useful graphs that allowed the audience to comprehend both fundamental and more sophisticated parts of his study.
