Ernest S. Kuh Distinguished Lecture: From Cory Hall to Silicon Valley: Building a Startup that Thrives
Lecture | April 16 | 12-1 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, Banatao Auditorium, 3rd floor
John Georges Ph.D., '94 EECS, Partner, QMC Telecom; David Curtrer, Ph.D., '98 EECS, CEO, Kumu Networks
In their talk, From Cory Hall to Silicon Valley: Building a Startup that Thrives, they will talk about Berkeley Engineering's role in their careers. While John and Dave were still graduate students at Berkeley, they founded LGC Wireless, a telecom equipment manufacturer. They also co-founded NextG Networks, which sold to Crown Castle for $1 billion in 2012. We are delighted to welcome them back... More >
Scientific Computing and Matrix Computations Seminar: Nonlinear reduced-order modeling: Using machine learning to enable extreme-scale simulation for many-query problems
Seminar: Scientific Computing: CS | April 17 | 2-3 p.m. | 380 Soda Hall
Kevin Carlberg, Sandia Lab
Physics-based modeling and simulation has become indispensable across many applications in engineering and science, ranging from aircraft design to monitoring national critical infrastructure. However, as simulation is playing an increasingly important role in scientific discovery, decision making, and design, greater demands are being placed on model fidelity. This high fidelity necessitates... More >

Marc Raibert, Founder and CEO, Boston Dynamics
Dynamics opens a world of opportunity for robotics. Robots that move dynamically can go where other robots can't go, handle larger payloads with smaller footprint and smaller robot mass, and move faster to get work done more quickly. This talk will give a status report on Boston Dynamics' work in this area, both its long-term effort to develop robots of the future and shorter-term efforts to... More >

Prof. Cristina Davis, UC Davis, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
Human breath analysis provides a wide range of opportunities for diagnosis of pathophysiological conditions in a non-invasive and potentially inexpensive way.
Ultimately these devices will be fully utilized in medical point-of-care locations in clinical offices.
