  • Art Exhibit by Lina Kogan, Class of 2000

    Wed, Jan 25, 2023 @ 12:00 PM - 06:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Receptions & Special Events


    *Current*: A conversation with Ukrainian-born artist and USC alumni, Lina Kogan, and a day-long exhibition of her works.

    *Current* is a collection of abstract minimalistic mixed media works with elements of hi-tech world, created in the last 3 years. The gadgets are deconstructed from their original form and function to the extent that meaning is shifted. They become brush strokes in Kogan's formalistic paintings, evoking meditative emotions.

    Lina Kogan was born in Ukraine. She moved to the US in 1992 and graduated from USC in 2000 with Master's degree in Computer Science, Multimedia and Creative Technologies. Kogan's first ceramic sculptures emerged in 1996, followed by mixed media and experimental abstracts. Kogan is an award-winning sculptor and mixed media artist. Her multi-faceted mixed media, collages, abstract paintings and ceramics were exhibited by Torrance Art Museum, American Museum of Ceramic Art, Pacific Design Center, Neutra Institute Museum, TAG Gallery, California Conference for Advancement of Ceramics Arts (CCACA).

  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Jan 25, 2023 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Steven L. Brunton, Professor of Mechanical Engineering Department of Mechanical Engineering University of Washington Seattle, WA

    Talk Title: Machine Learning for Scientific Discovery, with Examples in Fluid Mechanics

    Abstract: Accurate and efficient nonlinear dynamical systems models are essential to understand, predict, estimate, and control complex natural and engineered systems. In this talk, I will explore how machine learning may be used to develop these models purely from measurement data. We explore the sparse identification of nonlinear dynamics (SINDy) algorithm, which identifies a minimal dynamical system model that balances model complexity with accuracy, avoiding overfitting. This approach tends to promote models that are interpretable and generalizable, capturing the essential physics of the system. We also discuss the importance of learning effective coordinate systems in which the dynamics may be expected to be sparse. This sparse modeling approach will be demonstrated on a range of challenging modeling problems, for example in fluid dynamics. Because fluid dynamics is central to transportation, health, and defense systems, we will emphasize the importance of machine learning solutions that are interpretable, explainable, generalizable, and that respect known physics.

    Biography: Steven L. Brunton is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Washington. He is also Adjunct Professor of Applied Mathematics and Computer science, and a Data Science Fellow at the eScience Institute. Steve received the B.S. in mathematics from Caltech in 2006 and the Ph.D. in mechanical and aerospace engineering from Princeton in 2012. His research combines machine learning with dynamical systems to model and control systems in fluid dynamics, biolocomotion, optics, energy systems, and manufacturing. He received the Army and Air Force Young Investigator Program (YIP) awards and the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). Steve is also passionate about teaching math to engineers as co-author of three textbooks and through his popular YouTube channel, under the moniker eigensteve.
