Dissertation Talk: Learning and Optimization for Mixed Autonomy Systems - A Mobility Context

Seminar | August 20 | 1-2 p.m. | 521 Cory Hall

 Cathy Wu, UC Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In this talk, we discuss machine learning and optimization critical for enabling mixed autonomy systems – in the context of mobility. Mixed autonomy characterizes the problems surrounding the gradual and complex integration of automation and AI into existing systems. In the context of mobility, the question is: how will self-driving cars change urban mobility? We first explore and quantify the...   More >

Carl Heiles (UCB): Real Spectrometric L-Band Data from FAST: A Detailed Presentation and Analysis

Seminar | August 20 | 3:10-4 p.m. | 501B Campbell Hall

 Carl Heiles, UCB

 Radio Astronomy Lab

FAST is rapidly preparing to begin all-sky pulsar and HI survey work with their 19-beam feed array. I have been working with a set of data--1 msec sampling rate, 4096 frequency channels covering 1.00 to 1.50 GHz, two polarizations for each of the 19 beams. I'll show these data, discuss calibration and analysis techniques, comment on data quality and the interference environment and plans for the...   More >
