CLTC Seminar: “Veridical Data Science” with Professor Bin Yu

202 South Hall
  • Bin Yu, Departments of Statistics and of Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley
Abstract Veridical data science is important because it extracts reliable and reproducible information from data, with an enriched technical language to communicate and evaluate empirical evidence in the context of human decisions and domain knowledge. Building and expanding on principles of statistics, machine learning, and the sciences, we propose the predictability, computability, and...

Designing Algorithms for Social Good

HP Auditorium, 306 Soda Hall
  • Rediet Abebe, Junior Fellow, Harvard University, Society of Fellows
Algorithmic and artificial intelligence techniques show immense potential to deepen our understanding of socioeconomic inequality and inform interventions designed to improve access to opportunity. Interventions aimed at historically under-served communities are made particularly challenging by the fact that disadvantage and inequality are multifaceted, notoriously difficult to measure, and...

Towards an Equitable and Trustworthy Data Economy: a talk by Ruoxi Jia

Wozniak Lounge Soda Hall
  • Ruoxi Jia, UCB
The data economy is a rising ecosystem in which data are produced, distributed, and consumed at an unprecedented scale. On the one hand, the current data economy creates new levels of prosperity by driving rapid advances in machine learning and automation. On the other hand, it has some fundamental challenges that need to be addressed. First and foremost, how much is data worth? Data is valuable,...

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Hot Electrons, Cold Materials: Approaches for Next Generation Semiconductor Devices

The Hogan Room, 521 Cory Hall
  • Rehan Kapadia, Professor, University of Southern California
In the first part of the talk, we discuss our work efficient utilization of non-equilibrium electrons. We show that by carefully considering scattering, transport, and transfer rates, hot electron devices can be rationally designed and implemented.
