Spring 2021 GRASP SFI: “Safe and Data-efficient Learning for Robotics”

March 3 at 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Abstract: For successful integration of autonomous systems such as drones and self-driving cars in our day-to-day life, they must be able to quickly adapt to ever-changing environments, and actively reason about their safety and that of other users and autonomous systems around them. Even though control-theoretic approaches have been used for decades now for the […]

CBE Seminar: “Metal-Organic Frameworks as Tunable Platforms for Gas Storage, Chemical Separations and Catalysis”

March 3 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – Email CBE for link

Abstract Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are a versatile class of nanoporous materials synthesized in a “building-block” approach from inorganic nodes and organic linkers.  By selecting appropriate building blocks, the structural and chemical properties of the resulting materials can be finely tuned, and this makes MOFs promising materials for applications such as gas storage, chemical separations, sensing, […]

CIS Seminar: “The Measurement and Mismeasurement of Trustworthy ML”

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

Across healthcare, science, and engineering, we increasingly employ machine learning (ML) to automate decision-making that, in turn, affects our lives in profound ways. However, ML can fail, with significant and long-lasting consequences. Reliably measuring such failures is the first step towards building robust and trustworthy learning machines. Consider algorithmic fairness, where widely-deployed fairness metrics can […]
