EECS Colloquium: The Benefits of Mixed-Signal Computing for Artificial Intelligence

306 (HP Auditorium) Soda Hall
  • Dave Fick, Mythic, Inc.
Neural networks are making major impacts in all forms of edge computing, including computer vision, speech recognition, motor control, and more. Although covering many different applications, these inference applications share a common trait: their workload is dominated by matrix multiplies by static coefficients. Mythic has developed a technology to exploit that commonality by using embedded...

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Optoelectronic Tweezers – A New Optofluidic Platform for Digital Cell Biology

521 Hogan Room Cory Hall
  • Ming C. Wu, Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Dept., University of California, Berkeley
Recent success stories of treating cancer with immunotherapy has generated tremendous excitement in the last few years. The remarkable treatment of former President Jimmy Carter’s cancer was widely publicized. Immunotherapy uses the antibodies produced by white blood cells, or the cells themselves, to boost the immune response of patients to fight cancer cells. The discovery and production of...

Getting the Best of Nanomaterials: Intercalated Graphene/Quantum Dot Hybrid Photodetector: Nano Seminar Series

390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building
  • Prof. Oscar Vazquez Mena, UC San Diego, NanoEngineering
Recently, hybrid graphene quantum dot (Gr/QD) systems have emerged as high responsivity photodetectors, taking advantage of the high charge carrier mobility of graphene and the high light absorption of PbS quantum dots. However the performance of this hybrid system is still limited by the charge carrier diffusion length of quantum dots, which remains the main bottle neck for quantum dot based...

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...
