You must get your photos done if you want to be in the class composite and the yearbook (for Dec and May graduation). If you know you won’t order any photos, you can book a shortened appointment just to take a picture for the class composite. There is no charge for that.
A regular appointment requires a $35 deposit for the photo previews. If you choose not to order any photos and return the previews undamaged, your money if refunded. If you choose to order photos, that amount is deducted from the package you chose.
Simply phone Evangelos to book your appointment.
Come to the CSSS Office (X139) to pick up an info sheet with tips for getting your grad photos done.
The convergence of advances in algorithms for probabilistic reasoning and the development of low-cost, easily-deployed sensors is reviving the dream of AI to develop systems that can understand the narrative of ordinary human life. On the reasoning side, the AI community is developing techniques that bridge the gap between propositional Bayesian representations and hierarchical models of goals, plans, and actions. On the sensing side, new technologies such as RFID tags, GPS, motes, and wearable multi-modal sensors allow us to gather direct information about many aspects of human experience. I will describe recent work with my students and colleagues on developing systems that learn patterns of human activity for everyday tasks, both indoors and outdoors, using a variety of dynamic probabilistic models. I will then describe applications of these techniques to healthcare systems as part of the Assisted Cognition Project, a joint effort between our departments of computer science and rehabilitation medicine.
Did you know that UBC CS is among the highest ranking universities in Canada
when it comes to percentage of female enrolment? Ladies, we’ve a movie night
just for you. Come watch Crash and
enjoy some sushi with your fellow women-at-keyboards!
This is a free event, so come on out and network with the rest of the female

Traditionally communications network has been considered synonymous with connectivity. Focus for network research and development was majorly on bandwidth, availability and protocol interoperability. While these factors continue to play an important role in the future network R&D, a new set of business challenges and opportunities such as mission critical business applications, self-defending security networks, and network as a distributed computing platform, is emerging and requires the attention of network researchers and developers.
In this talk, we will discuss the evolution of network intelligence and its impact on distributed computing and distributed applications. This talk assumes the perspective of a business leader or an entrepreneur and examines the potential business opportunities that are associated with this technological transformation. In particular we will discuss business cases associated with emerging technologies such as content-based message routing, network deep packet inspection, network-as-distributed-database, network-enabled stateless server, etc.
The last LAN party was such a success that we’re bringing it back! Consider it your last opportunity to game before final exam crunch time :-)
Count on there being a foosball tournament, Risk deathmatches (risqué indeed), Unreal Tournament/Enemy Territory shootouts, and more. And we’re also bringing out our new projector hooked up to the Xbox, for 4 player, Halo 2 action. Fun for the whole family - well, almost. So, even if you protest and deny owning a decent gaming rig, you have no excuse not to come. Pizza (for *genuine* LAN party attendees) will be available and most likely subsidized by Yours Truly.
Like last time, if you want to suggest improvements and give your input, hit the forums (editor’s note: now closed).
