Mathematical Theories of Communication: Old and New

Banatao Auditorium Sutardja Dai Hall
  • Madhu Sudan, Harvard University
Reliable and efficient digital communication is possible today largely due to some wonderful successes in mathematical modelling and analysis. A legendary figure in this space is Claude Shannon (1916-2001) who laid out the mathematical foundations of communication in his seminal 1948 treatise, where among other contributions he gave a mathematical definition of "entropy" and coined the now...

Optimal robot action for and around people: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science

190 Doe Library
  • Anca Dragan, Professor, Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, UC Berkeley
Estimation, planning, control, and learning are giving us robots that can generate good behavior given a specified objective and set of constraints. What I care about is how humans enter this behavior generation picture, and study two complementary challenges: 1) how to optimize behavior when the robot is not acting in isolation, but needs to coordinate or collaborate with people; and 2) what to...

Safe Learning in Robotics

1011 Evans Hall
  • Claire Tomlin, UC Berkeley
A great deal of research in recent years has focused on robot learning. In many applications, guarantees that specifications are satisfied throughout the learning process are paramount. For the safety specification, we present a controller synthesis technique based on the computation of reachable sets, using optimal control and game theory. In the first part of the talk, we will review these...
