ESE Seminar: “Information Security for the Connected World”

Abstract: An all-wireless vision connecting billions of devices is finally in sight with the Internet-of-Everything paradigm. This vision entails large networks with dynamic connectivity, ad hoc formation and heterogeneous nodes. Central to be able to integrate all our lives to this massive virtual domain is security and privacy of the information that flows through it. […]

ESE Seminar: “2D Materials for Unconventional Devices: From Flexible/Wearable Tattoo Sensors to Monolayer Memory”

Abstract: This talk will present our latest research adventures on 2D nanomaterials towards greater scientific understanding and advanced engineering applications. In particular the talk will highlight our work on flexible electronics, zero-power devices, monolayer memory (atomristors), non-volatile RF switches, and wearable tattoo sensors. Non-volatile memory devices based on 2D materials are an application of defects […]

ESE Faculty Hosted Talk: “Deep Learned Optical Multiplexing for Microscopy”

Abstract: Fourier ptychographic microscopy is a technique that achieves a high space-bandwidth product, i.e. high resolution and high field-of-view. In Fourier ptychographic microscopy, variable illumination patterns are used to collect multiple low-resolution images. These low-resolution images are then computationally combined to create an image with resolution exceeding that of any single image from the microscope. […]

ESE Seminar: “AI and Intelligent IC/Accelerator Design: A Synergistic Approach”

The recent artificial intelligence (AI) boom has been largely driven by three confluence forces: algorithms, big data, and computing power enabled by modern integrated circuits (ICs) including specialized AI accelerators. In this talk, I will present a synergistic approach on AI and intelligent IC/accelerator designs with two main themes, AI for IC and IC for […]

ESE & Statistics Seminar: “Large Neural Networks: Insights from Linearized Models”

Abstract: Modern machine learning models, and in particular multilayer neural networks, exhibit a broad range of puzzling phenomena. Their training requires to minimize a highly non-convex high-dimensional cost function, and yet it is efficiently addressed using simple gradient descent (GD) or stochastic gradient descent (SGD) algorithms. This model contains more parameters than the number of […]

MEAM Seminar: “Engineering Microdevices Using Atomic Layer Deposition and Electrowetting”

This talk will cover 1) devices created one atomic layer at a time and 2) electrowetting optical elements. Atomic layer deposition (ALD) and Atomic Layer Etching (ALE) are self-limiting processes that enable accurate atomic-scale thickness control either through deposition or etching of various materials. We are developing novel manufacturing processes that study how ALD materials […]

“Compressive Sensing: From Algorithms to Circuits”

Compressive Sensing is an acquisition technique which relies on the sparsity of the underlying signals, to enable sampling below the classical Nyquist rate. To do so, the signals must be acquired in an incoherent way with respect to the sparsity basis, which is classically obtained in practice by acquiring the signal through projection on a […]

MEAM Seminar: “Small, Autonomous, Flying Robots that can Feel and Map their Environment”

Autonomous flight through unknown environments in the presence of obstacles is a challenging problem for micro aerial vehicles (MAVs). A majority of the current state-of-art research focuses on modeling obstacles as opaque objects that can be easily sensed by optical sensors such as cameras or LiDARs. Since obstacles may not always be opaque, particularly in […]

MEAM Seminar: “Machine Learning for Robotics: Achieving Safety, Performance and Reliability by Combining Models and Data in a Closed-Loop System Architecture”

The ultimate promise of robotics is to design devices that can physically interact with the world. To date, robots have been primarily deployed in highly structured and predictable environments. However, we envision the next generation of robots (ranging from self-driving and -flying vehicles to robot assistants) to operate in unpredictable and generally unknown environments alongside […]

ESE Seminar: “Caching and Coding in Networks: Rate Efficiency, Age Efficiency”

Caching is of primary importance in the Internet-of-Things (IoT) and in particular in information-centric network (ICN) architectures where the focal point is content rather than where it can be retrieved from. As a result, in ICN networks one can replicate and store (or cache) content at various nodes throughout the network so that it can […]
