Lecture series: Man meets Machine - Human-Computer Interaction
22 April 2015This month’s Gibbons Lecture series provides a fascinating showcase of the past, present and future of one of the fastest-developing aspects of our everyday life – human-computer interaction.
Steganography exhibit at the Motat Street Science fair
29 March 2015The Department of Computer Science will have an interactive Steganography exhibit at the Motat Street Science fair. Steganography hides messages in some cover media such as digital images, audio, or video files, so that existence of such messages is not readily recognized.
NZ Students Winning
16 March 2015Three Auckland University students have won first place at the 2015 Microsoft New Zealand Imagine Cup competition for Tether, an app that helps people find work opportunities. Tether, created by students Alyssa Ong, Vivien Lei and Opender Singh, uses Facebook integration to allow users to actively search their extended social network for people with skills required for casual jobs they need done.
Seminar: Algorithmically random infinite structures (Seminars) Event as iCalendar
29 April 2015, 2 - 3pmIn spite of much work, research on algorithmic randomness has excluded the investigation of randomness for infinite structures such as graphs, trees, and algebras. The reason is that it was unclear how one introduces a meaningful measures into these classes of structures. In this talk we provide a solution to this problem, and initiate the study of algorithmic randomness in various classes of infinite structures.
PhD Scholarship in "Synchrotron Radiation X-Ray Spectroscopic Studies of Functional Metal Oxides"
04 February 2015The available MacDiarmid Institute Ph.D. project involves the experimental study of the electronic structure of transition metal oxides using a suite of synchrotron radiation-based spectroscopies.
