ACM Chapter Member News | December 2016

Welcome to the December 2016 edition of the ACM Chapter Member News

Chapters are the "local neighborhoods" of ACM. Our Professional and Student chapters worldwide serve as nodes of activity for ACM members and the computing community at large, offering seminars, lectures, and the opportunity to meet peers and experts in many fields of interest. With over 900 active chapters worldwide, we would like to take the time now to connect with all of you, and bring you a few ACM Highlights.

ACM Chapter Spotlight

Florida State University ACM SIGGRAPH Student Chapter put on an event on November 18 that brought together a series of talks and gaming events, featuring the Technical Design Director at UCF's Interactive Entertainment Academy Ron Weaver, FSU's Entrepreneur in Residence and Disney Imagineer Mk Haley, and a game tournament hosted by FAMU Game Design and FSU Game Committee!

They invited everyone to learn more from these game changers in the gaming world and meet other students who share their interest for interactive entertainment!

Congratulations Florida State University ACM SIGGRAPH Student Chapter and keep up the great work.

Prediction-Serving Systems

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” is your number one resource for keeping up with emerging developments in the world of theory and applying them to the challenges you face on a daily basis. In this installment, Dan Crankshaw and Joey Gonzalez provide an overview of machine learning server systems. What happens when we wish to actually deploy a machine learning model to production, and how do we serve predictions with high accuracy and high computational efficiency? Dan and Joey’s curated research selection presents cutting-edge techniques spanning database-level integration, video processing, and prediction middleware. Given the explosion of interest in machine learning and its increasing impact on seemingly every application vertical, it's possible that systems such as these will become as commonplace as relational databases are today. 

ACM Case Studies

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.
