Computing Sciences Colloquia
Date: 10-27-23Time: 3:00pm
Location: LSC 133 - PNC Auditorium
Details: TITLE: Our Experiences Less than Two Years After the U PRESENTERS: Evan Esposito '21,'22G, Thomas Maccari '21,22G, James Ruff '21, Justin Thomas '21 ABSTRACT: Earning a college degree is a demanding enough task without the challenge of what comes afterward. Between further education, the job market, and other opportunities life may present, making a decision can seem overwhelming. The purpose of this presentation is to share the experiences of four recent graduates and answer questions to provide insight and encourage current students to consider what they hope to achieve after their studies. The presenters will introduce themselves and share their experiences at Scranton. They will go on to discuss their time in the job market and where their searches have led them, two or fewer years after graduation. The presenters will conclude by taking questions from the audience. BIOGRAPHIES: Evan Esposito graduated from the University of Scranton in 2021 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree and continued into receiving his Master of Science in Software Engineering degree in 2022 through the department's combined program. He is currently a Full-Stack Software Engineer at NextShift, a healthcare technology company based in Bethlehem, PA. Thomas Maccari is a software developer at Computer Aid Inc (CAI), a Software, IT, and cybersecurity solutions company based in Allentown, PA. He graduated from the University of Scranton with a degree in Computer Science in 2021, and again in 2022 with his Masters in Software Engineering. At CAI, he is currently part of the team on the PennDOT contract working to support and maintain KEES, a web application that facilitates the creation, submission, and documentation of construction permit applications that eventually become the bridges and road work you see in Pennsylvania today. James Ruff graduated from the University of Scranton in 2021 with a Bachelors degree in Computer Science and Philosophy. He took a position at The Elisabeth Morrow School in Englewood, NJ as a Technical Support Specialist 3 months after graduation, and remains there today. Justin Thomas completed his undergraduate degree in Computer Science from the University of Scranton in 2021. He is currently enrolled in the Master's program in Software Engineering from the University. After graduation he plans to enlist as an Officer in the United States Navy.

Details: TITLE: The AI/Machine Learning Blueprint: From Theory to Brain Wave Analysis PRESENTER: Kyle Burrell '19 ABSTRACT: The rapid proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in the modern world has become the subject of much debate, curiosity, and amazement. Yet there is often a lack of understanding of how these technologies really work, their capabilities/limitations, and the fundamental development workflows that are followed to build these AI systems. This presentation provides a general overview of how AI/ML systems work and how they are developed, including a simple step-by-step tutorial project involving the training of a deep neural network model to classify complex brain signals. In addition, the presentation gives a very basic introduction to the exciting new field of consumer brain analytics using low-cost wearable devices, and demonstrates how the combination of modern AI/ML technology with these consumer brain-scanning wearables can unlock deeper insights into the complex analysis, assessment, and training of brain states/performance. BIO: Kyle Burrell is the founder of Neuralytics AI, LLC, an NEPA-based startup company that is building software platforms that combine consumer brain-scanning wearables with modern artificial intelligence to unlock new levels of performance, cognition, and learning. He graduated from The University of Scranton in 2019 with degrees in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, and holds advanced certificates in both statistics and machine learning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) online learning platform, MITx. After attending The University of Scranton, he spent several years as a lead software engineer and research scientist for a local startup company, where he specialized in the research, design, and implementation of novel machine learning/artificial intelligence systems and applications. He is also a sought-after technical consultant, providing professional services in software engineering, data science, mathematical modeling, and the innovation of novel technology designs to solve real-world problems.
