ACM NDC Study

Survey of Non-doctoral-granting Academic Departments in Computing

The ACM NDC Study is the first-ever ACM-sponsored national survey of non-doctoral granting 4-year institutions in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Systems, Information Technology, and Software Engineering. The survey is adapted from the annual Taulbee Survey of Ph.D.-granting institutions conducted by the Computing Research Association (CRA) as well as SIGCSE-sponsored TauRUs surveys.

Volunteer with SocialCoder

You can use your technical skills for social good and offer volunteer support on software development projects to organizations who could not otherwise afford it. SocialCoder connects volunteer programmers/software developers with registered charities and helps match them to suitable projects based on their skills, experience, and the causes they care about. Learn more about ACM’s new partnership with SocialCoder, and how you can get involved.

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.
