Our intern Bruce Collie, together with Jackson Woodruff, and Michael O’Boyle have won the best paper award at GPCE this year for their paper Modeling Black-Box Components with Probabilistic Synthesis. Paper : Talk video: Congratulations!

Technical Talk: Syntactic reasoning for digital circuits using graphs Dan R. Ghica When: Thursday, November 19, 10am (Edinburgh) Abstract: I will present a general diagrammatic theory of digital circuits, based on connections between monoidal categories and graph rewriting. The main achievement of the paper is conceptual, filling a foundational gap in reasoning syntactically and symbolically […]

 A graphical language for closed monoidal categories, by Dan Ghica. Diagrams, schematics, blueprints and so on play an important role in engineering, architecture, construction, and other activities where projects need to be formally specified. In mathematics the role of diagrams has been, at least until recently, mostly that of illustrating concepts, rather than specifying formally […]

Programming language Virtual Machines (VMs) must make many assumptions about how programs typically operate in order to effectively optimise them. We less commonly consider the many assumptions that VM developers and researchers hold about how VMs operate and the context within which they operate. In this talk, I will present a number of partly, or […]
