GRASP On Robotics: “Learning and Games in Self-Driving”

April 16 at 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Abstract: In this talk, I’ll explore the power of a game-theoretic viewpoint in self-driving and in machine learning. We begin by considering the application of machine learning to Aurora’s advanced self-driving system in both perception and decision making. We discuss complexities that arise from multi-actor interaction. We then explore the, perhaps surprising, role a game-theoretic […]

ODEI Spotlight: Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People

April 16 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The purpose of the seminar, Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People, is to reveal the surprising and even perplexing ways in which we make errors in assessing and evaluating others when we recruit and hire, onboard and promote, lead teams, undertake succession planning, and work on behalf of our clients or the public we serve.

ESE Ph.D. Thesis Defense: “The Development of A Fingertip Implantable MEMS Tactile Sensing System”

April 16 at 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Zoom – email dulin@seas.upenn.edu for link

Abstract: This thesis explores the development of a fingertip implantable MEMS tactile sensing system to provide tactile sensing capabilities for paralyzed people using a brain machine interface (BMI) technology. With the BMI-controlled stimulation, paralyzed people are able to restore hand movement with their native hands without sensation. However, sensory feedback for these BMI-controlled stimulators is […]

PICS Colloquium: “Modeling and simulations of protein conformational changes and virus entry”

April 16 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Zoom – email kathom@seas.upenn.edu

Abstract: Virus infections remain major threats to human health worldwide. Viruses are intracellular parasites, and must enter host cells and deliver their genetic material to initiate infection. Virus entry is a highly complex process that may involve hundreds of trans-membrane and peripheral membrane proteins. This highly complex process is dictated by various events, such as […]

ESE Thesis Defense: “A Microwell-Based Impedance Sensor in Microneedle Shape for Cytokine Detection”

April 16 at 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – email naixins@seas.upenn.edu for link

Monitoring cytokine profiles plays a crucial role in predictive and early disease diagnosis, as well as in research in many biological fields, thus multiple approaches have been investigated. Despite the promise of these techniques, many still require specialized instrumentation or have not been shown in real-time applications, impeding their clinical adoption as point-of-care systems. Impedance-based […]
