Seminar | May 10 | 9-10 a.m. | 606 Soda Hall
Machine learning is being deployed in a growing number of applications which demand real-time, accurate, and cost-efficient predictions under heavy query load. These applications employ a variety of machine learning frameworks and models, often composing several models within the same application. However, most machine learning frameworks and systems are optimized for model training and not... More >

Max Gunzburger, Florida State University
We use the canonical examples of fractional Laplacian and peridynamics equations to discuss their use as models for nonlocal diffusion and mechanics, respectively, via integral equations with singular kernels. We then proceed to discuss theories for the analysis and numerical analysis of the models considered, relying on a nonlocal vector calculus to define weak formulations in function space... More >

In the talk we will present our work in designing components for an AutoML solution.
Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: High-Q chalcogenide device platform without direct etching process for non-linear and mid-IR Applications
Seminar | May 10 | 1-2 p.m. | Cory Hall, The Hogan Room, 521
Sangyoon Han, Postdoc, KAIST, Korea
In this talk, I will show our new device platform that defines chalcogenide devices without direct etching process. Using our platform, we have demonstrated chalcogenide resonators with record high (for on-chip chalcogenide devices) Q-factor (1.2 x 10^7) and Brillouin lasers with record low (for on-chip chalcogenide devices) threshold power (2.5mW).
Dissertation Talk: Expert-Level Detection of Acute Intracranial Hemorrhage on Head Computed Tomography using Deep Learning
Presentation | May 10 | 1-2 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall
Head CT is the workhorse medical imaging modality used worldwide to diagnose neurologic emergencies. We demonstrated state-of-the-art exam-level classification performance, comparable to that of U.S. board-certified radiologists, in addition to robust localization of abnormalities, both of which are important to this application.
Seminar | May 10 | 3-4 p.m. | Cory Hall, 540A/B
Tianshi Wang, UC Berkeley
Over the last few years, there has been considerable interest in Ising machines, ie, analog hardware for solving difficult (NP hard/complete) computational problems effectively. We present a new way to make Ising machines using networks of coupled self-sustaining nonlinear oscillators. Our scheme is theoretically rooted in a novel result that connects the phase dynamics of coupled oscillator... More >
Colloquium | May 10 | 3 p.m. | 250 Morrison Hall
First commissioned by the San Francisco Symphony at age 17, Nathaniel Stookey has collaborated with many of the world's great orchestras including The Philadelphia Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, The National Symphony, The Toronto Symphony, The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and The Hallé Orchestra, where he was...

Seminar | May 10 | 3-4 p.m. | 540 Cory Hall
I will show that the phase dynamics of sub-harmonically injection locked coupled oscillator systems are governed by a Lyapunov function that continuizes the Ising Hamiltonian.
This result is used to devise a new Ising machine scheme that can use oscillators from many different physical domains.
A demonstration of a prototype CMOS oscillator-based Ising machine of 240 spins will follow the talk.
Changing Production and Distribution Systems for Mass-Market Cultural Materials and Implications for Stewardship: The Case of Video Materials
Seminar | May 10 | 3:10-5 p.m. | 107 South Hall
The way in which video (including âfilmâ) materials are produced and the pathways by which they are distributed have changed radically from the days of VHS or even DVD. This has broad implications for our cultural memory institutions and also for efforts to attempt to even understand patterns of availability of material for libraries, or the stewardship status of materials. Iâll present what I... More >
Seminar | May 10 | 3:30-4:30 p.m. | 373 Soda Hall
The problem of generating a large number of diverse solutions to a logical constraint has important applications in testing, verification, and synthesis for both software and hardware. The solutions generated could be used as inputs that exercise some target functionality in a program or as random stimuli to a hardware module. The sampling of solutions can be combined with techniques such as fuzz... More >
Student Hosted Colloquium in Inorganic Chemistry: Using N,O to get to Yes. Catalytic Amination of Alkenes for Small Molecule and Polymer Synthesis
Seminar | May 10 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
N,O-Chelated ureate complexes of early transition metals can be used to catalytically add amines and N-heterocycles to both terminal and internal alkenes by hydroaminoalkylation. This alkene hydrofunctionalization reaction results in the generation of Csp3-Csp3 bonds in an atom-economic fashion and offers alternative disconnection strategies for the assembly of - and β-substituted...
