Jane Street Tech Talk: Accelerating Self-Play Learning in Go

Information Session: External Relations Group: EE: CS: Data Science | September 17 | 5:30-7 p.m. | Soda Hall, Wozniak Lounge (430)

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Accelerating Self-Play Learning in Go

Presented by: David Wu
Over the last few years at Jane Street, we've been increasingly exploring machine learning to build more sophisticated models in various areas of trading, and many of us are fascinated by the developments in the state of the art as a whole over that time.

Around early 2018, I started a personal hobby project to explore neural net...   More >

BLISS Seminar: Sample complexity of mixture of sparse linear regressions

Seminar: EE: Berkeley Laboratory for Information and System Sciences (BLISS) | September 18 | 3-4 p.m. | 400 Cory Hall

 Arya Mazumdar, University of Massachusetts Amherst

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In the problem of learning mixtures of linear regressions, the goal is to learn a collection of signal vectors from a sequence of (possibly noisy) linear measurements, where each measurement is evaluated on an unknown signal drawn uniformly from this collection. This setting is quite expressive and has been studied both in terms of practical applications and for the sake of establishing...   More >

EECS Colloquium: Moore’s Law is Not Dead

Colloquium: Departmental: EE: CS | September 18 | 4-5 p.m. | Soda Hall, 306 (HP Auditorium)

 Jim Keller, Intel

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Moore’s observation has continued to be challenged and questioned. And yet, today hundreds of billions of dollars are being invested in silicon technology that will enable feature sizes just a few atoms wide. To understand this unabated growth in computing, one needs to deconstruct the Moore’s Law transistor count exponential as the output of numerous individual innovations across the computing...   More >

Engineering Electronic States, Energy Transfer and Disorder in Nanomaterials Through the External Environment: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar: Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS): EE | September 20 | 2-3 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Dr. Archana Raja, Staff Scientist, LBNL Molecular Foundry

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

There is a rich variety of nanostructures available today for the design of novel material systems and interfaces with tailor-made functionalities.
I will show that the local environment strongly influences their electronic and excitonic states, corresponding disorder, dephasing processes and transport of energy.
