ESE Spring Seminar – “Agile Robot Autonomy”

Quadcopters are among the most agile and dynamic machines ever created. In this talk, I’ll show how data-driven sensorimotor controllers can push quadcopters with only onboard sensing and computation to […]

ESE Spring Seminar – “Risk-Aware Control and Planning in Unstructured Environments”

Providing safety and performance guarantees for motion planning and control algorithms is a well-studied problem for robotic systems with well-known dynamics that operate in structured environments. However, when robots operate […]

ESE Spring Seminar – “Aligning Robot and Human Representations”

To perform tasks that humans want in the world, robots rely on a representation of salient task features; for example, to hand me a cup of coffee, the robot considers […]

ESE Spring Seminar – “Supercharging Programming Through Compiler Technology”

The decline of Moore’s law and an increasing reliance on computation has led to an explosion of specialized software packages and hardware architectures. While this diversity enables unprecedented flexibility, it […]

ESE Spring Seminar – “Architecting High Performance Silicon Systems for Accurate and Efficient On-Chip Deep Learning”

The unabated pursuit for omniscient and omnipotent AI is levying hefty latency, memory, and energy taxes at all computing scales. At the same time, the end of Dennard scaling is […]

ESE Spring Seminar – “Scalable Data-Driven Decision-Making for Smart Autonomous Power and Energy Systems”

Rapidly growing renewable generations and peak loads pose a serious threat to the security and reliability of modern power and energy systems. A critical question is “how to accommodate a […]

ESE Spring Seminar – “An Architect’s Perspective on Quantum Computer Scaling: Why, What, and How?”

Quantum computation has potential to solve problems that are out of reach for today’s classical computers. Many of the proposed applications for quantum computers (QCs), such as those in chemistry, […]

ESE PhD Thesis Defense: “Accelerating FPGA Developments from C to Bitstreams by Partial Reconfiguration”

Divide-and-Conquer and incremental compilation strategies are widely used in software compilations. To enable these strategies for FPGAs, this dissertation presents an open-source framework called PRflow, which can speed up the […]

ESE Spring Seminar – “In pursuit of entanglement: XXZ interactions for spin-squeezing in atomic and solid-state spin ensembles”

Controlling many-body entanglement promises to yield both fundamental insights and practical advances. In particular, generating squeezed states for entanglement-enhanced metrology is an important near-term application of quantum systems. In past […]

MEAM Seminar: “Strategies for Approaching One Hundred Percent Dense Lithium-Ion Battery Cathodes”

Creating thick electrodes with low porosity can dramatically increase the available energy in a single cell and decrease the number of electrode stacks needed in a full battery, which results […]
