Special Seminar: Dr. Carey Schwartz, DARPA – November 13, 2015

Presented by CCICADA and DIMACS

Date/Time: Friday, November 13, 2015,  1:00pm

Location: CoRE Bldg., Board Room, 7th Floor, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ

This seminar is a presentation of the Command, Control, and Interoperability Center for Advanced Data Analysis (CCICADA),  and the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS).

Dr. Carey Schwartz joined DARPA as a program manager in February 2015. His principal research interests include analytic methods for distinguishing causality from correlation, data to decisions and quantum information sciences.
Prior to joining DARPA, Dr. Schwartz served as a program officer at the Office of Naval Research (ONR) where he developed and managed programs in information science and technology, advanced analytics and computational methods for decision making. From 2002-2008 Dr. Schwartz was a DARPA Program Manager in the Defense Science Office where he created and managed programs in applied and computational mathematics. Earlier in his government career Dr. Schwartz was employed by the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWC-WD), serving in a sequence of positions of increasing responsibility including division head of the Sensors and Signal Sciences Division and division head of the Computational Sciences Division.
Dr. Schwartz holds doctoral and master’s level degrees in physics from Pennsylvania State University and a bachelor’s in physics from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. He has 38 peer-reviewed publications, one patent and has received awards from both DARPA and NAWC-WD.

In his talk, Dr. Schwartz will describe the AIM (Adversarial Intent Modeling) and Correlation to Causality (C2C) programs. In particular he will focus on the objectives of these programs and the role of mathematics in providing solutions to the operational challenges that are being addressed by these programs.

Note: Dr. Schwartz will be available for individual or small group meetings of faculty, postdocs and students from 9AM-11AM and 2PM-4PM on Friday November 13, 2015. If you are or a student of yours is interested in meeting with him, please contact Dr. Bill Pottenger at billp@dimacs.rutgers.edu.
