Scientific Computing and Matrix Computations Seminar: Fractals

Seminar | April 10 | 2-3 p.m. | 380 Soda Hall

 Bernt Wahl, CEO, Factle Corporation

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

The Geometry of Nature, shapes that repeat themselves at
varying levels of magnification. Traditionally geometric objects are
referenced as basic shapes., but in the late 1800’s a group of
mathematicians would shatter Euclidean concepts with pathological,
irregular shapes that resided in fractional dimensional space. This
new mathematics dubbed a “Gallery of Monsters”, would lay the ground...   More >

Renewable Estimation and Incremental Inference in Generalized Linear Models with Streaming Data

Seminar | April 10 | 4-5 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall

 Peter Song, University of Michigan

 Department of Statistics

I will present a new statistical paradigm for the analysis of streaming data based on renewable estimation and incremental inference in the context of generalized linear models. Our proposed renewable estimation enables us to sequentially update the maximum likelihood estimation and inference with current data and summary statistics of historic data, but with no use of any historic raw data...   More >

EECS Colloquium: Just In Time Electronics

Colloquium: EE: CS | April 10 | 4-5 p.m. | Soda Hall, 306, HP Auditorium

 Jonathan Bachrach, Creative Director, JITX ; Adjunct Assistant Professor, EECS, U.C. Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Low-cost fully automated manufacturing is bringing about a new industrial revolution. Bespoke objects can be built with costs approaching volume production. But while we can manufacture bespoke objects at scale, we still cannot design them at scale. Design is now the bottleneck. Automating design will make design more accessible and produce better than human results and combined with unit...   More >

 Roya Maboudian, Professor, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of California, Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

I will present recent advances, by our group and
others, in the materials science and manufacturing technology of SiC thin film and low
dimensional structures, and some applications that these advances have enabled ranging
from harsh environment sensing to energy technologies.

3D Human Brain Models and Nanoplatforms for Prognostics and Therapeutics of Neurological Disorders: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar: Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS): EE | April 12 | 2-3 p.m. | 4 LeConte Hall

 Prof. Hansang Cho, Univ of North Carolina, Charlotte / Biomedical Engineering

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia. However, no definitive cure for AD exists due to lack of limited model systems that accurately reflect AD-related immunity in human brains, nor for a drug development strategy for delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and assessment of drug efficacy in human brains.

Here, I present micro-scaled 3D environments that...   More >
