Combinatorial Energy Learning for Image Segmentation

Seminar: Redwood Seminar | September 2 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall


Jeremy Maitin-Shepard, Computer Science, UC Berkeley

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Recent advances in volume electron microscopy make it possible to image neuronal tissue volumes containining hundreds of thousands of neurons at sufficient resolution to discern even the finest neuronal processes. Accurate 3-D segmentation of these processes densely packed in these petavoxel-scale volumes is the key bottleneck in reconstructing large-scale neural circuits.

We introduce a new...   More >

Robots that reason about people

Seminar: ICBS Seminar | September 11 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 5101 Tolman Hall


Anca Dragan, UC Berkeley

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


The goal of my research is to enable robots to work with, around, and in support of people, autonomously producing behavior that reasons about both their function and their interaction with humans. I aim to develop a formal understanding of interaction that leads to algorithms which are informed by mathematical models of how humans interact with robots, enabling generalization across robot...   More >

Investigating the Neural Basis of Complex Spatial Behaviors Under Natural and Learned Conditions in Freely Flying Bats: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | December 4 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building | Note change in date


Prof. Michael Yartsev, UC Berkeley, Bioengineering / Neuroscience

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute


Navigation, both learned and natural, requires knowing where you are and the ability to decide, based on available evidence, where to go from there. Here, I will describe recent work, conducted in both terrestrial and flying species, addressing the neural mechanisms underlying these core functions.

I will begin with describing recent findings on the spatial representation system in the...   More >
