Astrobiologist and Astronomer Jill Tarter at the Berkeley Forum: Technosignatures: What Are They, And How Might We Find them?

Lecture | September 16 | 6-7 p.m. | 125 Morrison Hall


Jill Tarter

The Berkeley Forum


Arthur C. Clarke's third law states that "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Since 1960, SETI (Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence) researchers have been searching for that ‘magic’ in the form of radio, and now optical, electromagnetic signals. These searches need to continue and grow utilizing the exponentially increasing capabilities of computing, but......   More >

BLISS Seminar: Sample complexity of mixture of sparse linear regressions

Seminar | 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&#146;s Law is Not Dead

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

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 >

Directional Energy Transfers in a Deep-Water, Extreme Ocean Wave

Seminar | September 19 | 12-1 p.m. | 3110 Etcheverry Hall


Dylan Barratt, DPhil Student, Department of Engineering Science; University of Oxford, UK

Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME)


Abstract: Steep, focusing waves can experience fast and local nonlinear evolution of the spectrum due to wave-wave interactions resulting in energy transfer to both higher and lower wavenumber components. The shape and kinematics of a steep wave may, thus, differ substantially from the predictions of linear theory. We have investigated the role of nonlinear interactions on group shape for a......   More >
