MEAM Seminar: “Fusion for Robot Perception and Controls”

March 2 at 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Machine learning has led to powerful advances in robotics: deep learning for visual perception from raw images and deep reinforcement learning (RL) for learning controls from trial and error. Yet, these black-box techniques can often require large amounts of data, have results difficult to interpret, and fail catastrophically when dealing with out-of-distribution data. In this […]

MSE Seminar: “Engineering topological phases in graphene moiré heterostructures”

March 2 at 10:45 AM - 11:45 AM

Taming topological electronic phases is a fundamental challenge and an important milestone on the way towards novel electronic devices and topological quantum computation. Recent advances in fabrication techniques have made van der Waals (vdW) heterostructures one of the most active platforms for the experimental investigation of topological electronic phases in 2D. Moiré superlattices, which arise […]

MEAM Ph.D. Thesis Defense: “Reactive Planning with Legged Robots in Unknown Environments”

March 2 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Unlike the problem of safe task and motion planning in a completely known environment, the setting where the obstacles in a robot's workspace are not initially known and are incrementally revealed online has so far received little theoretical interest, with existing algorithms usually demanding constant deliberative replanning in the presence of unanticipated conditions. Moreover, even […]

CIS Seminar: ” Exterminating bugs in real systems”

March 2 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – Email CIS for link, cherylh@cis.upenn.edu + Google Map

Software is everywhere, and almost everywhere, software is broken. Some bugs just crash your printer; others hand an identity thief your bank account number; still others let nation-states spy on dissidents and persecute minorities. This talk outlines my work preventing bugs using a blend of programming languages techniques and systems design. First, I'll talk about […]
