Computational experiments with two neuro-inspired abstractions: Hebbian learning and spike timing information

Seminar | June 14 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall

 Upamanyu Madhow, UCSB

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

In this talk, we discuss early work on two different neuro-inspired computational abstractions. In the first, we investigate flavors of competitive Hebbian learning for bottom-up training of deep convolutional neural networks. The resulting sparse neural codes are competitive with layered autoencoders on standard image datasets. Unlike standard training based on optimizing a cost function, our...   More >

BSAC Technology Seminar - Transfer Printing for LEGO-Like Microassembly and Nanomaterial Integration

Seminar | June 14 | 12-1 p.m. | 540 Cory Hall

 Prof. Seok Kim, Assistant Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Mechanical Science and Engineering

 Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center

Reversible dry adhesion-based transfer printing provides a path to heterogeneous material integration. Research in smart dry adhesives, 3D MEMS, and nano devices are presented, including responsive surfaces, microassembly, and nanomanufacturing technologies. Reversible dry adhesive made of shape memory polymer enable microassembly called micro-LEGO.

Bikeway Facility Design and Safety Improvement

Workshop | June 7 – 14, 2017 every Wednesday | 1-4:30 p.m. |  Online

 Rock Miller, Stantec Consulting

 Technology Transfer Program

This new, in-depth class on design of facilities for bicycling addresses both legacy facilities and innovative designs that are being developed within many communities at this time. This course will orient participants with fundamentals and details of bikeway design, ranging from application of traditional designs (bike routes, lanes, paths) to innovative facilities that are growing in...   More >

 This course is most appropriate for persons interested in understanding how to design a facility that meets user needs, encourages additional usage and growth in bicycling, and preserves or improves safety for all users. While appropriate and intended for
