AIM Seminar: Fast and parallel algorithms for submodular maximization
Speaker: Huy Nguyen (CCIS, NU)
Abstract: Submodular functions naturally arise in a variety of contexts from economics to data mining and machine learning. Many optimization problems in these areas can be modeled as optimizing a submodular function subject to constraints. In this talk, we will survey some recent progress in algorithms for these problems in a variety of settings.
