Dissertation talk: Computational speckle structured illumination for high-content microscopy

Presentation: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 9 | 9-10 a.m. | 540AB Cory Hall

 Li-Hao Yeh, UC Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

High-content microscopy targets high-resolution imaging across large fields-of-view (FOVs). Recent works have demonstrated that computational imaging, which generalizes the information...   More >

Dissertation Talk: Building Interactive Query Systems at Scale

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 9 | 10-11 a.m. | 465H Soda Hall

 Anurag Khandelwal, University of California at Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Modern cloud data services aim to support increasingly sophisticated queries with interactive response times. These services can be broadly divided into two categories: read-intensive applications such as web services, and write-intensive applications such as real-time monitoring of event streams. In both cases, supporting sophisticated queries interactively and at scale raises significant...   More >

Dissertation Talk: Faster Algorithms and Graph Structure via Gaussian Elimination

Colloquium: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 9 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 606 Soda Hall

 Aaron Schild

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Dissertation Talk: Constructive Formal Control Synthesis through Abstraction and Decomposition

Presentation: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 9 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 531 Cory Hall

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

It is often easier to describe what we want an autonomous system to do rather than how to do it. A control synthesizer bridges that gap by automatically constructing control software so the closed loop dynamics enforce a desired behavior such as safety or reachability. While many specific instances of control synthesis have elegant mathematical solutions, designing tractable algorithms to compute...   More >

Dissertation talk: Untethered Microrobots of the Rolling, Jumping and Flying Kinds

Presentation: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 9 | 1-2 p.m. | Cory Hall, 521 Hogan room

 Palak Bhushan, EECS Dept, UC Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In this talk we will look at the design of 0.1gram centimeter-scale microbots utilizing different locomotion strategies as a means of transport. The focus won't be on the brain or useful payloads for these bots, but instead on the electro-mechanical design to make these tether-less, which is a necessary precursor to making autonomous microbots.

We start with the design of a micro-ratcheting...   More >

Dissertation Talk: Chip-Scale Fluorescence Microscope

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 9 | 3:30-4:30 p.m. | Cory Hall, 490H (Immersion Room in Swarm Lab)

 Efthymios Philip Papageorgiou

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

This talks presents a chip-scale fluorescence microscope for the detection of microscopic residual disease, small clusters of hundreds to thousands of cancer cells left behind after the gross tumor is removed during a surgical resection.
