Bay Area Writing Project
Sponsored by the Bay Area Writing Project of UC Berkeley, the camps offer kids a unique opportunity to develop their creative abilities and writing talents. In a relaxed campatmosphere, campers will receive specific writing instruction and conference individually with staff to build and reinforce their writing skills. The camps are for students who like to write! They are not remedial writing... More >
Computational experiments with two neuro-inspired abstractions: Hebbian learning and spike timing information
Seminar | June 14 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall
Upamanyu Madhow, UCSB
In this talk, we discuss early work on two different neuro-inspired computational abstractions. In the first, we investigate flavors of competitive Hebbian learning for bottom-up training of deep convolutional neural networks. The resulting sparse neural codes are competitive with layered autoencoders on standard image datasets. Unlike standard training based on optimizing a cost function, our... More >
BSAC Technology Seminar - Transfer Printing for LEGO-Like Microassembly and Nanomaterial Integration
Seminar | June 14 | 12-1 p.m. | 540 Cory Hall
Prof. Seok Kim, Assistant Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Mechanical Science and Engineering
Reversible dry adhesion-based transfer printing provides a path to heterogeneous material integration. Research in smart dry adhesives, 3D MEMS, and nano devices are presented, including responsive surfaces, microassembly, and nanomanufacturing technologies. Reversible dry adhesive made of shape memory polymer enable microassembly called micro-LEGO.
RSVP online by June 13.

This new, in-depth class on design of facilities for bicycling addresses both legacy facilities and innovative designs that are being developed within many communities at this time. This course will orient participants with fundamentals and details of bikeway design, ranging from application of traditional designs (bike routes, lanes, paths) to innovative facilities that are growing in...
