  • Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Seminar

    Tue, Jan 26, 2021 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Sonny Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Mahmut Ekenel, Ph.D., P.E., Senior Staff Engineer at ICC Evaluation Service, Brea, CA

    Talk Title: Building Codes in the U.S.A. and Evaluation of Alternative Construction Materials

    Abstract: In the United States, where the power to regulate construction is vested in local authorities, a system of model building codes is adopted. The International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC) are the two model codes that were developed to establish the minimum requirements to safeguard the public health and safety through provisions that include structural strength. This presentation briefly explains how building codes are developed and enforced in the U.S.A., and major differences between the model building codes. This presentation also explains what happens if there is an alternative construction material or construction method that is not recognized by the building codes by presenting several case studies.




    Biography:
    Mahmut Ekenel, Ph.D., P.E., Fellow ACI, is a Senior Staff Engineer at ICC Evaluation Service, Brea, CA. He received his M.S. from Southern Illinois University, and his Ph.D. from Missouri S&T University, where he also worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher. His research interests include fiber-reinforced polymer and fiber-reinforced cementitious matrix strengthening of structures, fiber-reinforced concrete, concrete additives, and anchorage to concrete. He is a registered Civil Engineer in the States of California and Ohio.

  • CS Distinguished Lecture: Dan Roth (University of Pennsylvania) - It's Time for Reasoning

    Tue, Jan 26, 2021 @ 04:00 PM - 05:20 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dan Roth, University of Pennsylvania

    Talk Title: It's Time for Reasoning

    Series: Computer Science Distinguished Lecture Series

    Abstract: The fundamental issue underlying natural language understanding is that of semantics -“ there is a need to move toward understanding natural language at an appropriate level of abstraction in order to support natural language understanding and communication with computers.
    Machine Learning has become ubiquitous in our attempt to induce semantic representations of natural language and support decisions that depend on it; however, while we have made significant progress over the last few years, it has focused on classification tasks for which we have large amounts of annotated data. Supporting high level decisions that depend on natural language understanding is still beyond our capabilities, partly since most of these tasks are very sparse and generating supervision signals for it does not scale.
    I will discuss some of the challenges underlying reasoning -“ making natural language understanding decisions that depend on multiple, interdependent, models, and exemplify it using the domain of Reasoning about Time, as it is expressed in natural language.

    https://usc.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_DbjnVhUcQG-HIHt6eLQCYQ

    After registering, attendees will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.


    Biography: Dan Roth is the Eduardo D. Glandt Distinguished Professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Pennsylvania, and a Fellow of the AAAS, the ACM, AAAI, and the ACL.
    In 2017 Roth was awarded the John McCarthy Award, the highest award the AI community gives to mid-career AI researchers. Roth was recognized "for major conceptual and theoretical advances in the modeling of natural language understanding, machine learning, and reasoning."
    Roth has published broadly in machine learning, natural language processing, knowledge representation and reasoning, and learning theory, and has developed advanced machine learning based tools for natural language applications that are being used widely. Until February 2017 Roth was the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR).
    Roth has been involved in several startups; most recently he was a co-founder and chief scientist of NexLP, a startup that leverages the latest advances in Natural Language Processing (NLP), Cognitive Analytics, and Machine Learning in the legal and compliance domains. NexLP was sold to Reveal in 2020.
    Prof. Roth received his B.A Summa cum laude in Mathematics from the Technion, Israel, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Harvard University in 1995.
