Amos O Olagunju
St Cloud State University
St Cloud, Minnesota
 

Amos Olagunju is a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Information Technology at St. Cloud State University (SCSU) in Minnesota. He previously served as the interim dean of undergraduate studies for two years at SCSU. Prior to that position, he served as the dean of the School of Graduate Studies and chief research officer at Winston Salem State University in North Carolina. Amos served as the chair of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department, and later the Computing and Information Sciences Department, at Delaware State University (Dover, DE). Before that, he taught in the Asian Division at the University of Maryland University College, North Carolina A&T State University, and Michigan State University.

A faculty fellow and later a senior faculty fellow selected jointly by the American Society of Engineering Education and the Navy, Amos developed manpower mobilization and data-mining algorithms for monitoring the retention behaviors of personnel. As a member of the technical staff at Bell Communications Research (now Telcordia), he developed an architecture for a generalized C transaction environment, quantitative models for system workload projection and characterization, software metrics, and managerial decision support systems.

Amos developed statistical methods for the determination of content validity to obtain his doctorate in educational research and evaluation from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He investigated a distributed model as a basis for keyword detection to earn his master’s in computer and information sciences from Queen’s University (Canada). He received a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and computer science from Ahmadu Bello University in Nigeria. Amos was designated as an ACM senior member in 2007. His current research interests are in the areas of bioinformatics, quantitative security risk assessments, numerical computing, and artistic storytelling of breakthrough computing algorithms and technologies. He has been a reviewer for Computing Reviews since 2005, and has written over 100 reviews.


     

Is the law ready for driverless cars?
Calo R.  Communications of the ACM 61(5): 34-36, 2018. Type: Article

Current and future technologies will likely continue to be beset with clumsy legal laws. Should driverless vehicles and devices be responsible for violations such as a crash? Depending on the situation, Calo, in this rare viewpoint, echoes the dif...

 

A new nonparametric screening method for ultrahigh-dimensional survival data
Liu Y., Zhang J., Zhao X.  Computational Statistics & Data Analysis 119(C): 74-85, 2018. Type: Article

Groundbreaking effective algorithms for overcoming the discrepancies in the existing screening procedures for ultrahigh-dimensional medical survival data are long overdue. Liu et al. offer a nonparametric Kolmogorov-Smirnov (K-S) test statistic fo...

 

Analysis of the relation between computational thinking skills and various variables with the structural equation model
Durak H., Saritepeci M.  Computers & Education 116 191-202, 2018. Type: Article

The task of detecting the attributes of computational thinking skills in students remains a major challenge for educational researchers. What are the most reliable global predictors of the computational thinking abilities among primary, high schoo...

 

Collaborative agile learning in online environments
Noguera I., Guerrero-Roldán A., Masó R.  Computers & Education 116 110-129, 2018. Type: Article

Perhaps online training will continue to survive the competition from traditional classrooms. What changes should online academic institutions make with regard to instruction in order to satisfy both students and industry? Noguera et al. report re...

 

A complexity trichotomy for approximately counting list H-colorings
Galanis A., Goldberg L., Jerrum M.  ACM Transactions on Computation Theory 9(2): 1-22, 2017. Type: Article

H-colorings are essential in the exploration of language syntax expositions. An H-coloring is the allocation of adjacent colors to neighboring vertices of a graph G. An H-...
