MEAM PhD Thesis Defense: “Delivering Expressive and Personalized Fingertip Tactile Cues”

October 6 at 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Wearable haptic devices have seen growing interest in recent years, but providing realistic tactile feedback is not a challenge that is soon to be solved. Daily interactions with physical objects elicit complex sensations at the fingertips. Furthermore, human fingertips exhibit a broad range of physical dimensions and perceptive abilities, adding increased complexity to the task […]

MEAM Seminar: “Operator Inference: Bridging Model Reduction and Scientific Machine Learning”

October 6 at 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Model reduction methods have grown from the computational science community, with a focus on reducing high-dimensional models that arise from physics-based modeling, whereas machine learning has grown from the computer science community, with a focus on creating expressive models from black-box data streams. Yet recent years have seen an increased blending of the two perspectives […]

ESE Grace Hopper Lecture: “Emerging Non-Volatile Ferroelectric Memory”

October 6 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Zoom – Email ESE for Link jbatter@seas.upenn.edu

Abstract The last decade has seen a remarkable shift in usage and value of semiconductor memory technologies. These changes are driven by the elevation of four particular target applications –(1) mobile multi-media applications, (2) explosive growth in the sheer volume of data that is being created and stored, (3) emphasis from the individual components to […]

CIS Seminar:”Language, Brain, and Computation”

October 6 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – Email CIS for link, cherylh@cis.upenn.edu

How does the brain beget the mind?  How do molecules, cells and synapses effect reasoning, intelligence, language?   Despite dazzling progress in experimental neuroscience, as well as in cognitive science at the other extreme of scale, we do not seem to be making progress in the overarching question -- the gap is huge and a […]
