MSE Seminar: “Bio-like Structural Hydrogels with Life-like Intelligence”

April 8 at 10:45 AM - 11:45 AM

From the cellular level up to the body system level, living organisms present elegant designs and strategies to realize the desirable structures, properties and functions. For example, tendons and muscles are tough but soft, owing to highly complex hierarchical structures rarely found in synthetic materials. Plants can automatically track the sun and our body can […]

BE Seminar: “Reaction-Coupled Solid-State Nanopore Digital Counting: Towards Sensitive, Selective and Fast Nucleic Acid Testing” (Weihua Guan)

April 8 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This seminar will be held virtually on Zoom (details coming soon). Due to their conceptual simplicity, the nanopore sensors have attracted intense research interest in electronic single molecule detection. While considerable success has been achieved, the solid-state nanopores still face three significant challenges, including repeatable nanopore size control, introduction sensing specificity, and prolonged sensor response […]

CIS Seminar: “AI for Population Health: Melding Data and Algorithms on Networks”

April 8 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – Email CIS for link, cherylh@cis.upenn.edu + Google Map

As exemplified by the COVID-19 pandemic, our health and wellbeing depend on a difficult-to-measure web of societal factors and individual behaviors. My research aims to build AI which can impact such social challenges, advancing health and equity on a population level. This effort requires new algorithmic and data-driven paradigms which span the full process of gathering costly data, developing machine learning models to understand […]
