Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
Feedback Computing '14: USENIX 9th International Workshop on Feedback Computing
Join us in Philadelphia, PA, June 17, 2014, for the 9th International Workshop on Feedback Computing. Many research disciplines such as machine learning, mathematical optimization, automatic control, cyber-physical systems, and autonomic computing rely on feedback to achieve goals such as autonomy, learning, adaptation, stabilization, robustness, or performance optimization. This workshop provides a unique forum to exchange the insights across these disciplines as the theoretical foundations of feedback, broadly defined, in computing and to share the experience pertaining to use of feedback in computing.
