CCICADA/DIMACS Seminar presents:

Speaker: Dr. Cary Schwartz, DARPA

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

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
