  Near optimal online algorithms and fast approximation algorithms for resource allocation problems
Devanur N., Jain K., Sivan B., Wilkens C.  Journal of the ACM 66(1): 1-41, 2019. Type: Article

The resource allocation problem is an age-old problem with a rich history. This paper revisits the resource allocation problem, albeit in a different setting, finding “a middle ground between worst-case and stochastic [analyses]”: the ...

  Designing robot teams for distributed construction, repair, and maintenance
Wareham T.  ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 14(1): 1-29, 2019. Type: Article

Human beings consider some environments hostile, such as deep space, nuclear reactors, or contaminated areas, and thus are not very keen on working in them. In cases such as these, robots might just step in to accomplish tasks in place of humans. ...

  Automated machine learning: methods, systems, challenges
Hutter F., Kotthoff L., Vanschoren J.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 219 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030053-17-8)

A dataset, generically speaking, is a collection of numbers. It constitutes an information element when structure and context are assigned. The objective of machine learning (ML) is to interpret an information element as a human would. This requir...

   BigDL: a distributed deep learning framework for big data
Dai J., Wang Y., Qiu X., Ding D., Zhang Y., Wang Y., Jia X., Zhang C., Wan Y., Li Z., Wang J., Huang S., Wu Z., Wang Y., Yang Y., She B., Shi D., Lu Q., Huang K., Song G.  SoCC 2019 (Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing, Santa Cruz, CA,  Nov 20-23, 2019) 50-60, 2019. Type: Proceedings

The sheer complexity of storage and processing methods deployed by big data applications has resulted in a prolonged wait for a deep learning framework that effectively works with big data. This paper announces the end of this wait, explaining the...
