Dissertation Talk: The Design and Implementation of Low-Latency Prediction Serving Systems

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 10 | 9-10 a.m. | 606 Soda Hall

 Daniel Crankshaw

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Machine learning is being deployed in a growing number of applications which demand real-time, accurate, and cost-efficient predictions under heavy query load. These applications employ a variety of machine learning frameworks and models, often composing several models within the same application. However, most machine learning frameworks and systems are optimized for model training and not...   More >

EECS Student Awards

Special Event: Departmental: EE: CS | May 10 | 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. |  Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Engineering Center

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Each year the EECS Student Awards Committee selects winners for each of our department awards, many based on nominations gathered from EECS students, faculty and staff.

Dissertation Talk: Expert-Level Detection of Acute Intracranial Hemorrhage on Head Computed Tomography using Deep Learning

Presentation: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 10 | 1-2 p.m. |  Sutardja Dai Hall


 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Head CT is the workhorse medical imaging modality used worldwide to diagnose neurologic emergencies. We demonstrated state-of-the-art exam-level classification performance, comparable to that of U.S. board-certified radiologists, in addition to robust localization of abnormalities, both of which are important to this application.

Dissertation Talk: Towards Automatic Machine Learning Pipeline Design

Presentation: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 10 | 1-2 p.m. | 380 Soda Hall

 Mitar Milutinovic

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In the talk we will present our work in designing components for an AutoML solution.

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: High-Q chalcogenide device platform without direct etching process for non-linear and mid-IR Applications

Seminar: Solid State Technology and Devices: EE: CS | May 10 | 1-2 p.m. | Cory Hall, The Hogan Room, 521

 Sangyoon Han, Postdoc, KAIST, Korea

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In this talk, I will show our new device platform that defines chalcogenide devices without direct etching process. Using our platform, we have demonstrated chalcogenide resonators with record high (for on-chip chalcogenide devices) Q-factor (1.2 x 10^7) and Brillouin lasers with record low (for on-chip chalcogenide devices) threshold power (2.5mW).

Dissertation Talk: Low Power Design with Spintronic MTJ Devices

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 10 | 2-3 p.m. | 250 Sutardja Dai Hall

 Yoonhwan Kang, UC Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Lowering power consumption of electronics is driven by three reasons: i) the worldwide energy consumption of semiconductor chips is a sizable contributor to the global warming, ii) the high-power density of the chips is one of the main obstacles to the scalability of the transistors, and iii) the market of Internet-of-Things has risen to a nontrivial sector of the global electronics market....   More >

Dissertation Talk: Solving Hard Computational Problems using Oscillator Networks

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 10 | 3-4 p.m. | Cory Hall, 540A/B

 Tianshi Wang, UC Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Over the last few years, there has been considerable interest in Ising machines, ie, analog hardware for solving difficult (NP hard/complete) computational problems effectively. We present a new way to make Ising machines using networks of coupled self-sustaining nonlinear oscillators. Our scheme is theoretically rooted in a novel result that connects the phase dynamics of coupled oscillator...   More >

Solving Hard Computational Problems using Oscillator Networks: PhD Dissertation Talk

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 10 | 3-4 p.m. | 540 Cory Hall

 Tianshi Wang, Graduate Student, EECS Department, UC Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

I will show that the phase dynamics of sub-harmonically injection locked coupled oscillator systems are governed by a Lyapunov function that continuizes the Ising Hamiltonian.
This result is used to devise a new Ising machine scheme that can use oscillators from many different physical domains.
A demonstration of a prototype CMOS oscillator-based Ising machine of 240 spins will follow the talk.

Dissertation Talk: Efficient Sampling of SAT and SMT Solutions for Testing and Verification

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 10 | 3:30-4:30 p.m. | 373 Soda Hall

 Rafael Dutra

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

The problem of generating a large number of diverse solutions to a logical constraint has important applications in testing, verification, and synthesis for both software and hardware. The solutions generated could be used as inputs that exercise some target functionality in a program or as random stimuli to a hardware module. The sampling of solutions can be combined with techniques such as fuzz...   More >
