ESE Seminar: ERI: Creating Inflections in the Trajectory of Semiconductors
The government is spending 1.5 billion dollars over 5 years to create a more secure, specialized and highly automated electronics industry. This talk will describe the current programs and the motivation for the initiative.
ESE & GRASP Seminar: “Efficient Computing for AI and Robotics”
Computing near the sensor is preferred over the cloud due to privacy and/or latency concerns for a wide range of applications including robotics/drones, self-driving cars, smart Internet of Things, and portable/wearable electronics. However, at the sensor there are often stringent constraints on energy consumption and cost in addition to the throughput and accuracy requirements of […]
ESE Seminar: “Connecting Bits to the Physical World”
Analog, RF and power integrated circuits are the key connectors between the physical world and the digital or cyber world. In this talk I will give my perspective on broader research trends in analog integrated circuit design research and illustrate several of these trends with results from my research group. The analog circuit design discipline […]
The Joy of Being Faculty: How to Apply for a Faculty Position
This professional development workshop is designed to provide Penn Engineering graduate students and postdocs with a richer understanding of what it is like to pursue a career in academia from those that have navigated the process successfully. Deputy Dean Kathleen J. Stebe (SEAS) will lead this extemporaneous panel discussions with a mix of both tenured […]
ESE Seminar: “Safety and Robustness Guarantees with Learning in the Loop”
In this talk, we present recent progress towards developing learning-based control strategies for the design of safe and robust autonomous systems. Our approach is to recognize that machine learning algorithms produce inherently uncertain estimates or predictions, and that this uncertainty must be explicitly quantified (e.g., using non-asymptotic guarantees of contemporary high-dimensional statistics) and accounted for […]
ESE Seminar: “Control of Light and Heat for New Energy Applications”
Light carries energy and heat, and plays a key role in many energy-conversion processes. The capabilities to tailor electromagnetic energy transfer at the nanoscale represent important opportunities for novel energy applications. In this talk I will present two sets of studies integrating experiments and theory. In the first part, I will discuss how to use […]
ESE Seminar: “Confluence of Electromagnetics, Circuits and Systems Enables The Third Wireless Revolution”
Integrated circuits have fueled several revolutions that have deeply impacted modern society, including the computing revolution, the internet and the first two wireless revolutions. We are at the dawn of the third wireless revolution, which I call the Wireless Mobile Reality revolution. Over the next fifteen years, new wireless paradigms spanning from radio frequencies to […]
