Dissertation Talk: FPGA-Accelerated Evaluation and Verification of RTL Designs

Presentation: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 6 | 9:30-10:30 a.m. | 380 Soda Hall

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

This thesis describes fast and accurate RTL simulation methodologies for performance, power, and energy evaluation as well as verification and debugging using FPGAs in the hardware/software co-design flow.

Dissertation Talk: Measuring Generalization and Overfitting in Machine Learning

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 6 | 1-2 p.m. | 405 Soda Hall

 Rebecca Roelofs

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Due to the prevalence of machine learning (ML) algorithms and the potential for their decisions to profoundly impact billions of human lives, it is crucial that they are robust, reliable, and understandable. This thesis examines key theoretical pillars of ML surrounding generalization and overfitting, and tests the extent to which empirical behavior matches existing theory. We develop novel...   More >

Dissertation Talk: Towards Secure Computation with Optimal Complexity

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 6 | 2-3 p.m. | 606 Soda Hall

 Peihan Miao

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Secure computation enables a set of mutually distrusting parties to collaboratively compute a public function over their private data while keeping those data private. A central question in the cryptography community, that has been studied for decades, is whether secure computation protocols can be efficient enough to serve for its countless applications. In this talk, I will present my efforts...   More >

Between Shannon and Hamming: how bad can the channel be?: BLISS Seminar

Seminar: EE: Berkeley Laboratory for Information and System Sciences (BLISS) | May 6 | 3-4 p.m. | 540 Cory Hall

 Anand Sarwate, Rutgers

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

The information theory community has traditionally studied two different models for communication. The Shannon-theoretic model treats the channel’s impact as random, so codes must correct almost all error patterns of a given weight; this is an average-case analysis. The coding-theoretic (Hamming-theoretic?) model treats the channel as adversarial, so codes must correct all error patterns of a...   More >

Space Tech Symposium 2.0 at Berkeley: Hosted by Space Technologies at Cal

Conference/Symposium: EE | May 6 | 4:30-8:30 p.m. |  Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Engineering Center

 Space Technologies at Cal, Berkeley SkyDeck

Come expand your network at Space Tech Symposium 2.0 @ Berkeley (https://stac.berkeley.edu/sts2) on May 6 by meeting researchers, CEOs of the hottest space startups, and Berkeley faculty as they discuss their visions for the future of space development.

Mobility between space and non-space fields is at an all-time high and we'd love to have you join this conversation. Panelists from NASA,...   More >
