Alexander Litvinenko is presenting his collaboration work at the SIAM PP conference in Tokyo, Japan, March 7-10, 2018. This work is done between the stochastic numerics group, Extreme Computing Research Center, and two statistical groups (led by Prof. M. Genton and Prof. Y. Sun) at KAUST.
The fifth-anniversary event marked CEMSE's biggest successes and featured 20 KAUST discoveries, with more than 1,000 visitors from the community attending the event."Big data has many applications: to understand medicine better; to manage food supplies, and to connect objects. Data is at the center of everything," said Dean Mootaz Elnozahy of the University's Computer, Electrical, Mathematical Science and Engineering (CEMSE) Division at the CEMSE Big Data Open Day held on December 4, 2016.
Marc G.Genton, Professor of Statistics in the Division of Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Sciences and Engineering (CEMSE), has been appointed by KAUST President Jean-Lou Chameau to Distinguished Professor of Statistics.
