Presentation: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 6 | 9:30-10:30 a.m. | 380 Soda Hall
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.
Seminar: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 6 | 1-2 p.m. | 405 Soda Hall
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 >

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

The information theory community has traditionally studied two different models for communication. The Shannon-theoretic model treats the channels 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 >
Conference/Symposium: EE | May 6 | 4:30-8:30 p.m. | Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Engineering Center
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 >
