EECS Collquium: Machine Learning: a New Approach to Drug Discovery

306 (HP Auditorium) Soda Hall
  • Daphne Koller, insitro
Modern medicine has given us effective tools to treat some of the most significant and burdensome diseases. At the same time, it is becoming consistently more challenging to develop new therapeutics: clinical trial success rates hover around the mid-single-digit range; the pre-tax R&D cost to develop a new drug (once failures are incorporated) is estimated to be greater than $2.5B; and the rate...

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: A Perspective on Future Logic Technologies Essential Constituents

The Hogan Room, 521 Cory Hall
  • Carlos Diaz, Senior Director in Research and Development, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company
CMOS technology continues to scale despite challenges whose solutions, including design and system considerations, increase complexity. Going forward, the exploratory landscape to power, performance, density, and complexity challenges remains rich in options. Timely and conclusive research on new transistors, interconnects, memories, and 3DIC structures and materials is key to long term...

Color Centers and Quantum Nanophotonics: Nano Seminar Series

120 Latimer Hall
  • Prof. Marina Radulaski, UC Davis, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Light and matter interaction at the nanoscale has been explored for a variety of quantum technologies pertaining to information processing, communication and sensing. The color centers, atomic defects in wide band gap semiconductor lattices, have had a prominent role in this research. The favorable combination of optical and spin properties qualifies color centers as fast indistinguishable...

OmniX - an accelerator-centric OS architecture for omni-programmable systems

510 Soda Hall Soda Hall
  • Mark Silbertein, Israel Institute of Technology
Future systems will be omni-programmable: alongside CPUs, GPUs, Security accelerators and FPGAs, they will execute user code near-storage, near-network, and near-memory...

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Creating Positive Feedback Loops to Accelerate the Energy Transition

The Hogan Room, 521 Cory Hall
  • Sarah Kurtz, Professor, University of California, Merced
This talk will discuss how positive feedback loops can help accelerate the energy transition by taking a balanced approach. The talk will also discuss how choices we make in designing our new energy system can reduce or increase the size of the problem.

Modulation of Precursor Reactivity for Colloidal Synthesis of WSe2 Nanocrystals and Heterostructures: Nano Seminar Series

120 Latimer Hall
  • Prof. Alina Schimpf, UC San Diego, Chemistry and Biochemistry
Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) can host a variety of phases, each with a unique electronic structure, allowing access to a compositionally and electronically diverse set of 2D materials. Among these materials, the metastable 1T′ phase of WSe2 has recently gained attention due to its potential application as a quantum spin hall insulator operable at room temperature. This metastable...
