Online Course on Computer Arithmetic for Complex Networks Begins at ETU

From October 26, Erivelton Geraldo Nepomuceno, Professor of the Federal University of São João del-Rei (Brazil), will conduct the online course on Computer Arithmetic for Complex Networks for students of ETU "LETI" engineering faculties interested in Big Data, IoT, and AI.

The course consists of three parts. In the first part, the professor will provide a brief description of Mathematical Analysis. Afterward, he will deliver some basic concepts on Number Representation from the perspective of Computer Arithmetic.

The next chapter is devoted to a general overview of IEEE 754-2008: Standard for Floating-Point Arithmetic. Professor Nepomuceno will give a basic understanding of Complex Networks for students to realize how complicated it is to simulate complex phenomena.

The last part is dedicated to Advanced Topics, where students will study two of the most important papers of the lecturer: "Detecting unreliable computer simulations of recursive functions with interval extensions" and "Computational chaos in complex networks." The first work shows how it is possible to falsify some computer simulation using a simple technique called Lower Bound Error. In the second, the professor presents the origin of computational chaos in a simulation of a complex network, which is clear evidence that researchers should give much more concern to important areas of science, such as Big Data, IoT, and AI, where massive computing simulation is undertaken.

The course duration is 20 hours. Details and registration are available here.
