Jon Tamir, EECS, UC Berkeley
Magnetic resonance imaging is a powerful medical imaging modality for visualizing tissue contrast, but its long scan times remain a limitation. In this talk I will present accelerated MRI acquisition and reconstruction techniques that recover multiple images of varying tissue contrast from a single scan, thereby reducing overall exam times.

In this talk, I discuss how we can exploit properties that emerge from the collective behavior of constituents at different length scales to reduce power consumption below conventional limits in computing. At the device level, I show how ferroelectric-dielectric coupling ("negative capacitance") can reduce energy consumption below 1/2 CV^2 in capacitors. At the circuit level, high-dimensional... More >

Abstract: The human brain is a complex organ characterized by heterogeneous patterns of interconnections. New non-invasive imaging techniques now allow for these patterns to be carefully and comprehensively mapped in individual humans, paving the way for a better understanding of how wiring supports our thought processes. While a large body of work now focuses on descriptive statistics to... More >
