A Particulate Solution: Data Science in the Fight to Stop Air Pollution and Climate Change | IDSS Distinguished Speaker Seminar

April 2, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Francesca Dominici (Harvard University)

E18-304

Abstract: What if I told you I had evidence of a serious threat to American national security – a terrorist attack in which a jumbo jet will be hijacked and crashed every 12 days. Thousands will continue to die unless we act now. This is the question before us today – but the threat doesn’t come from terrorists. The threat comes from climate change and air pollution. We have developed an artificial neural network model that uses on-the-ground air-monitoring data…

Exponential line-crossing inequalities

April 12, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Aaditya Ramdas (Carnegie Mellon University)

E18-304

Abstract: This talk will present a class of exponential bounds for the probability that a martingale sequence crosses a time-dependent linear threshold. Our key insight is that it is both natural and fruitful to formulate exponential concentration inequalities in this way. We will illustrate this point by presenting a single assumption and a single theorem that together strengthen many tail bounds for martingales, including classical inequalities (1960-80) by Bernstein, Bennett, Hoeffding, and Freedman; contemporary inequalities (1980-2000) by Shorack and Wellner,…
