Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Quantum vs. Optical Annealing: Benchmarking the Coherent Ising > Machine and D-Wave

Seminar: Solid State Technology and Devices: EE: CS | July 12 | 1-2 p.m. | Cory Hall, The Hogan Room, 521

 Ryan Hamerly, Postdoctoral Fellow, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

We propose that the performance penalty stems from the sparse connectivity of the QA and the resulting embedding overhead, which provides strong experimental support for efforts to increase the connectivity of quantum annealers.

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Conventional silicon transistor and spintronic based implementation of neural network algorithms in analog hardware

Seminar: Solid State Technology and Devices: EE: CS | July 19 | 1-2 p.m. | 250 Sutardja Dai Hall

 Debanjan Bhowmik, Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

I shall discuss implementation of both non-spiking algorithms, which are widely used by the machine learning community, and spiking algorithms, which are based on biological data about neurons and synapses in the brain, in our proposed hardware systems.

Science Lecture - Seeing the Unseen: Overcoming the limitations of optics to visualize nano-structures, atoms and even magnetic fields

Lecture: Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS): EE | July 20 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 100 Genetics & Plant Biology Building

 Dr. Ella Lachman, Department of Physics

 Science@Cal

The development of novel tools is of great importance to the advancement of science. New imaging methods in particular can bring a deeper understanding as we are used to grasping the world mainly by visualizing images.

When the limit of optical microscopy was reached, scientists found a way to enhance it and cheat their way beyond it. Eventually, they invented a whole different way of imaging...   More >

Not all proteins are created equal: Finding solution in translational control

Abstract:
Protein synthesis is an indispensable process which accounts for a large proportion of the energetic resources of any living cells. Therefore, translational regulation must be tightly controlled. Such regulation is critical for protein biogenesis, folding, trafficking and degradation under stable and...   More >

Open-Source Enclaves Workshop (OSEW 2019)

Workshop: CS | July 25 | 8 a.m.-6 p.m. | Soda Hall, Wozniak Lounge

 Krste Asanović, David Kohlbrenner, Dayeol Lee, Shweta Shinde, Dawn Song, Mohit Tiwari, UC Berkeley

 PI Grant

OSEW brings the architecture/systems-security community together to make progress towards building open-source, secure, performant enclaves. In particular, we will discuss the different, realistic threat models, the components for secure enclaves, best practices and state-of-the-art techniques for each component, and open problems in this space.
