  • Repeating EventMeet USC: Admission Presentation, Campus Tour, and Engineering Talk

    Wed, Jan 30, 2019

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    Workshops & Infosessions

    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS juniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

    Talk Title: Control and Communication of Cyber-Physical Systems over Low-Power Lossy Links

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: Many emerging cyber-physical systems, for example those arising in the internet-of-things, will operate at very low power over lossy communication links. This creates a very tight set of constraints on the transmit power, bit rate, and tolerable delay, which, if not appropriately dealt with, can lead to severe loss of performance. We will describe three novel approaches for addressing the control and communication challenges in such cyber-phyical systems. We study the problem of minimizing an LQG control cost over a rate-constrained channel, the design of tree codes for real-time control over lossy links, and the development of a new modulation scheme for low power blind communications called MOCZ (modulation over conjugate zeros).

    Biography: Babak Hassibi is the inaugural Mose and Lillian S. Bohn Professor of Electrical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology, where he has been since 2001, From 2011 to 2016 he was the Gordon M Binder/Amgen Professor of Electrical Engineering and during 2008-2015 he was Executive Officer of Electrical Engineering, as well as Associate Director of Information Science and Technology. Prior to Caltech, he was a Member of the Technical Staff in the Mathematical Sciences Research Center at Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ. He obtained his PhD degree from Stanford University in 1996 and his BS degree from the University of Tehran in 1989. His research interests span various aspects of information theory, communications, signal processing, control, and machine learning. He is an ISI highly cited author in Computer Science and, among other awards, is the recipient of the US Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) and the David and Lucille Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering. He is General co-Chair of the 2020 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT 2020).
