Electrical Control of Interlayer Exciton Dynamics in Semiconducting Atomically Thin Heterostructures: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. Luis A. Jauregui, UC Irvine, Physics
Van der Waals heterostructures constructed of 2-dimensional (2-D) materials such as single layer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have sparked wide interest because of their large excitonic binding energy, allowing the exploration of novel quantum optical effects in a solid-state system and new opto-electronic devices. In this talk, I will discuss our results in van der Waals...

Dissertation talk: Structured Models for Vision-and-Language Reasoning

1th floor Berkeley Way West
  • Ronghang Hu, Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) Lab
With the help of larger datasets and more computation resources, we have witnessed significant progress in joint visual and linguistic reasoning (such as referring expression comprehension, visual question answering and embodied instruction following). However, is solving these vision-and-language tasks as simple as making the models larger and training them on more data?...
