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

 College of Engineering, Eta Kappa Nu (HKN)

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

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

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 >

EECS Colloquium: Building Dynamic Robots

Colloquium: Departmental: EE: CS | April 17 | 4-5 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, Banatao Auditorium | Note change in location

 Marc Raibert, Founder and CEO, Boston Dynamics

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

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 >

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Materials for Spin-Charge Interconversion: A New Perspective

Seminar: Solid State Technology and Devices: EE: CS | April 19 | 1-2 p.m. | Cory Hall, The Hogan Room, 521

 Shehrin Sayed, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UC Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In this talk, I will present a physics-based model to describe such effects in diverse classes of materials including topological insulators, Kondo insulators, transition metals, semimetals, oxide interfaces, and narrow band-gap semiconductors.

Metabolite-based Diagnostics Enabled by MEMS Devices: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar: Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS): EE | April 19 | 2-3 p.m. | 4 LeConte Hall | Note change in date and location

 Prof. Cristina Davis, UC Davis, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

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.
