Generalizing Graph Neural Network across Graphs and Time

School of Computing and Information Systems Graph-structured data widely exist in diverse real-world scenarios, such as social networks, e-commerce graphs, citation graphs, and biological networks. Analysis of these graphs can uncover valuable insights about their respective application domains. Meanwhile, graph representation learning provides an effective way to the graph analytics problem. However, most previous works focused on learning node representation from a single fixed graph, while many real-world scenarios require representations to be quickly generated for unseen nodes, new edges, or entirely new graphs. This inductive ability is essential for high-throughtput machine learning systems, operating on evolving graphs and constantly meeting unseen nodes (e.g. posts on Wikipedia, users and items on Amazon). This inductive graph representation problem is quite difficult, compared to the transductive setting, for that generalizing to unseen nodes requires new subgraphs containing the new nodes to be aligned to the neural network trained already… Subtitle: PhD Dissertation Proposal by WEN Zhihao.

The Design of a Collaborative Tool to Generate Scene Descriptions for People with Visual Impairments

School of Computing and Information Systems The majority of online video content remains inaccessible for blind people due to the lack of audio descriptions despite the mandate from anti-discrimination related regulations for the provision of videos with audio descriptions (AD). Content creators have traditionally relied on professionals to author audio descriptions. How- ever, this gold standard may still not be accessible for casual content creators be- cause this method is still costly and has a long turnaround time. To address this problem, I introduce four research threads for my Ph.D. dissertation. First, I developed and evaluated a mixed-ability collaboration authoring tool, called ViScene to understand the efficacy of collaborative methods in generating good-quality audio descriptions. Second, we extend ViScene so that it supports authors by automatically generating feedback on AD qualities. Third, I propose to explore the feasibility of AD-post editing to generate high-quality ADs where a program automatically generates the initial AD and hum… Subtitle: PhD Dissertation Proposal by Rosiana NATALIE.

Achieving Mastery & Success Through Growth Mindset: Part I (Intake 6)

ACE SMU Academy Decades of research has led Psychology Professor at Stanford University, Carol S. Dweck, to identify people with two types of mindsets – fixed mindset and growth mindset.  People with fixed mindset believe that talent and intelligence are predetermined by nature and in finite supply, while people with growth mindset believe that everyone has the capacity to grow, develop and improve their intelligence and ability over time through deliberate practice. This is validated by advances in neuroscience on brain plasticity, which indicate that brains do change physically, functionally, and chemically throughout our lives and the changes are manifested through our abilities. Our brains are malleable and can be strengthened for further growth and development at all ages through mental exercises, much like how physical exercises can build muscles. The converse is true. Neural pathways that are underused will weaken or be replaced over time. Professor Dweck’s studies revealed a significant correlation between how peop… Fee(s): Please refer to fees and funding at https://academy.smu.edu.sg/achieving-mastery-and-success-through-growth-mindset-1001.

HR Analytics Certificate (Foundation Level) (Intake 37)

ACE SMU Academy As HR practitioners, are you able to forecast which employees are at risk of leaving? Can you help improve the organisation’s engagement level? Are you well equipped to drive better compensation and benefits design? Leading companies such as Google and Starbucks have adopted data-driven approaches to make decisions about their employees. Best Buy, an electronics retail store in the USA, found that a 0.1% increase in their employee engagement at a particular store translates into a US$100K increase in the store’s operating revenue. AT&T and Google found that, for their companies, the ability to take initiative, rather than stellar academic records from prestigious schools is a far better predictor of high performance on a job. These companies leverage on employee and other data extensively to help them make objective HR decisions.

Finance Research Seminar

Area Administration With overlapping generations and heterogeneous risk aversion there is no unique relation between aggregate risk aversion and the real rate of interest, and this type of endogenous "noise" cannot arise in an economy where agents live forever. Our framework accommodates many agent types and the noise emerges precisely because all (but one) consumption shares drive the economy. Adding wealth dispersion to aggregate risk aversion suffciently summarizes the rich dynamics of the model. Consistent with the model, we construct "level" and “slope” factors that do not require knowledge about agents' risk aversion to predict excess returns. Subtitle: Asset Prices with Wealth Dispersion.

SOSS 15th Anniversary Seminar Series | Singapore Decoupling: Communitarianism and the Challenges of Immigration, Inequality, and Liberalization

School of Social Sciences Does communitarianism have a future in Singapore? For more than fifty years, modern Singapore’s communitarian governance, which privileges the communal good over individual self-interest, has made the city-state one of the world’s most successful and cohesive economies. Since the 2000s, however, profound social changes have challenged the ideology and practice of communitarianism. This talk discusses how immigration, inequality, and liberalization have emerged as points of social division to disrupt communitarianism, how the communal good is perceived, and how it is practiced in public policy. My main argument is that social groups in Singapore have become decoupled from one another, with a marked discontinuity in social trust and cohesion since the early 2000s, making communitarian governance an increasingly challenging prospect.

Strategic Communications: Crisis Management in Service Delivery

Institute of Service Excellence @SMU OVERVIEW The landscape of corporate and public relations communications have undergone marked changes in recent years with the advent of digital technologies and social media. No longer is the organisation’s reputational experience confined to the domain of brick and mortar stores.

SOSS 15th Anniversary Seminar Series | Mobilizing for Elections: Patronage and Political Machines in Southeast Asia

School of Social Sciences Across Southeast Asia, as in many other regions, politicians win elections by distributing cash, goods, jobs, projects, and other benefits to supporters. But they do so in ways that vary tremendously—both across and within countries. This talk, based on a new book, Mobilizing for Elections: Patronage and Political Machines in Southeast Asia (with Edward Aspinall, Meredith Weiss and Paul Hutchcroft), I present a new framework for analyzing variation in patronage democracies, focusing on distinct forms of patronage and different networks through which it is distributed. I do so by drawing on a massive, multi-country, multi-year research effort involving interactions with hundreds of politicians and vote brokers, as well as surveys of voters and political campaigners across the region. I explore how local machines in the Philippines, ad hoc election teams in Indonesia, and political parties in Malaysia pursue distinctive clusters of strategies of patronage distribution—what I term electoral mobilization regimes.… Contact: cindykwoh@smu.edu.sg.

Trust is critical for problem-solving because a baseline level of trust is foundational for people to believe their leaders and decide to cooperate or be motivated to perform actions towards achieving the intended outcome. When public trust is low, effective functioning is hampered – leaders, be they in governments, businesses or non-profit organizations, will find it extremely difficult to implement a control measure or an initiative, change a prior decision or explain the change, and galvanize people to collectively manage a crisis.

SOSS 15th Anniversary Seminar Series | What is Racial Privilege?

School of Social Sciences The concept of demographic privilege (e.g. “white privilege” “male privilege” “class privilege”) is often appealed to by social scientists to explain social phenomena. It has also played a prominent role in recent social justice movements. Yet these appeals are controversial and have generated some critical pushback. Drawing on work by philosophers, I will argue that “privilege” is unhelpfully being used as a label for several morally distinct social phenomena. Furthermore, only some of these phenomena involve “privileges” in the traditional moral sense. The upshot is that “privilege” is too crude a term to accurately capture the relevant moral and social phenomena. To theorize better about social injustices, and resolve the critical pushback, we need a richer conceptual scheme that uses several terms in place of one. Contact: cindykwoh@smu.edu.sg.

Achieving Mastery & Success Through Growth Mindset: Part 2 (Intake 6)

ACE SMU Academy Decades of research has led Psychology Professor at Stanford University, Carol S. Dweck, to identify people with two types of mindsets – fixed mindset and growth mindset.  People with fixed mindset believe that talent and intelligence are predetermined by nature and in finite supply, while people with growth mindset believe that everyone has the capacity to grow, develop and improve their intelligence and ability over time through deliberate practice. This is validated by advances in neuroscience on brain plasticity, which indicate that brains do change physically, functionally, and chemically throughout our lives and the changes are manifested through our abilities. Our brains are malleable and can be strengthened for further growth and development at all ages through mental exercises, much like how physical exercises can build muscles. The converse is true. Neural pathways that are underused will weaken or be replaced over time. Professor Dweck’s studies revealed a significant correlation between how peop… Fee(s): Please refer to fees and funding at https://academy.smu.edu.sg/achieving-mastery-and-success-through-growth-mindset-1001.
