Dissertation Talk: On Systems and Algorithms for Distributed Machine Learning

Presentation: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 7 | 1-2 p.m. | 521 Cory Hall

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

The advent of algorithms capable of leveraging vast quantities of data and computational resources has led to the proliferation of systems and tools aimed to facilitate the development and usage of these algorithms. Hardware trends, including the end of Moore's Law and the maturation of cloud computing, have placed a premium on the development of scalable algorithms designed for parallel...   More >

Dissertation Talk: Approximation and Hardness: Beyond P and NP

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 7 | 2-3 p.m. | 310 Soda Hall

 Pasin Manurangsi, University of California, Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

The theory of NP-hardness of approximation has led to numerous tight characterizations of approximability of hard combinatorial optimization problems. Nonetheless, there are many fundamental problems which are out of reach for these techniques, such as problems that can be solved (or approximated) in quasi-polynomial time...   More >

Dissertation Talk: Low Power, Crystal-Free Design for Monolithic Receivers

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 7 | 4-5 p.m. | 490 Cory Hall

 Brad Wheeler

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In this talk I will discuss my work on a crystal-free IEEE 802.15.4 receiver for the Single Chip Mote project.
