Scientific Computing and Matrix Computations Seminar: Eniac

Seminar: Scientific Computing: CS | February 13 | 2-3 p.m. | 380 Soda Hall

 Joe Grcar, LBNL, retired

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

The ENIAC was the first machine to do useful work as a modern, general-purpose computer. Conceived during the second World War, it was built in 1943-1945 at the University of Pennsylvania, and then it ran at the U.S. Army Ballistic Research Lab on Aberdeen Proving Ground until 1955. ENIAC did not have a von Neumann architecture although it did operate in a programmable mode beginning in 1948....   More >

Large Deviations of Random Projections of High-dimensional Measures

Seminar: CS: Data Science | February 13 | 3-4 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall

 Kavita Ramanan, Brown University

 Department of Statistics

Properties of random projections of high-dimensional probability measures are of interest in a variety of fields, including asymptotic convex geometry, and high-dimensional statistics and data analysis. A particular question of interest is to identify what properties of the high-dimensional measure are captured by its lower-dimensional projections. While fluctuations of these projections have...   More >

Integrated analysis of cancer data: multi-omic clustering and personalized ranking of driver genes

Abstract: Large biological datasets are currently available, and their analysis has applications to basic science and medicine. While inquiry of each dataset separately often provides insights, integrative analysis may reveal more holistic, systems-level findings. We demonstrate the power of...   More >

Memoryless Analog-to-Digital Conversion Using Delta-Sigma Modulators Without Reset

Seminar: EE | February 15 | 2-3 p.m. | 545R Cory Hall

 Nagendra Krishnapua, Professor, Indian Institute of Technology Madras

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Delta-Sigma architectures cannot be used directly when the input is multiplexed from a number of inputs. The memory in the modulator and the decimation filter results in inter-sample interference. We demonstrate memoryless analog-to-digital conversion using Delta-Sigma modulators without resetting the modulator or decimation filters.
