The AI Trinity: Data + Algorithms + Infrastructure

Banatao Auditorium Sutardja Dai Hall
  • Anima Anandkumar, California Institute of Technology
AI at scale requires a perfect storm of data, algorithms and cloud infrastructure. Modern deep learning has relied on large labeled datasets for training. However, such datasets are not easily available in all domains, and are expensive/difficult to collect. By building intelligence into data collection and aggregation, we can drastically reduce data requirements. Additionally, algorithmic and...

Design Field Notes: Mike Marzalek

220 Jacobs Hall
About Design Field Notes: Each informal talk in this pop-up series brings a design practitioner to a Jacobs Hall teaching studio to share ideas, projects, and practices. About this talk: Mike Marzalek (BSEE 1969) gradually lost his hearing over time and twelve years ago got a cochlear implant (CI) .... a bionic ear. At that time Mike was a telecommunications research and development...

The challenge of big data and data science for the social sciences: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science

190 Doe Library
  • Henry Brady, Dean, Goldman School of Public Policy
  • Henry Brady, Dean, Goldman School of Public Policy
The 2005 National Science Foundation workshop report on "Cyberinfrastructure for the Social and Behavioral Sciences" (Fran Berman and Henry Brady) argued that the methods of doing research in the social sciences would be transformed by big data and data science and that the social sciences should be centrally involved in studying the impacts of big data and data science on society. In "The...

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: “Origin of strong Rashba spin orbit coupling and spin-Hall effect in Si”

521 Hogan Room Cory Hall
  • Sandeep Kumar, University of California, Riverside
Silicon can be a promising material for spintronics due to long spin diffusion length at room temperature. For realization of Si spintronics, efficient generation of spin current, detection and manipulation is essential. But insignificant intrinsic spin-orbit coupling leads to insignificant spin-Hall effect (spin current generation) and inverse spin-Hall effect (spin current detection), which is...
