  • Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things and Ming Hsieh Institute Seminar

    Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things and Ming Hsieh Institute Seminar

    Wed, Feb 17, 2021 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Mallik Tatipamula, CTO of Ericsson Group Function Technologies and Architectures

    Talk Title: Harnessing the Power of 5G, Edge Computing & AI/ML for Industrial IoT Applications

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

    Abstract: This session begins with an update on 5G technology, standards and global network rollouts. Then it will present future technology evolution and research challenges at the intersection of "5G, edge computing and AI/ML" for realizing a distributed multi-cloud to address Industrial IoT applications. It will conclude with a discussion on research opportunities over the next decade for 5G as well as early 6G research areas.

    Biography: As a CTO of Ericsson Group Function Technologies and Architectures, Dr. Mallik Tatipamula leads the evolution of Ericsson's technology, and champions the company's next phase of innovation and growth driven by 5G Distributed Multi-Cloud Deployments. He also leads O-RAN and early 6G technology efforts. Prior to Ericsson, he held several leadership positions at F5 networks, Juniper networks, Cisco, Motorola, Nortel, and the Indian Institute of Technology (Chennai). During 30 years of professional career, he has played a unique leadership role in delivering industry's most powerful innovations, standards contributions, products/solutions, and early real-world deployments, working with telecom operators as well as academia, to accelerate the architectural transitions in the telecom industry. He has identified strategic opportunities and implemented programs with a multi-billion dollars impact, launching over 50 products/solutions that are deployed in global telecom networks to enable major network transitions from 2G to 5G. Since 2011, he has been a visiting professor at King's College London, where world's first 5G network was demonstrated together with Ericsson and Vodafone. He is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) and The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET, UK). He received several awards, including "Univ. of California, Berkeley's Garwood Center for Corporate Innovation Award," the "CTO/Technologist of the year" award by World Communications Awards, the "IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Industry Leader Award," the "IET Achievement medal in telecommunications", and and the "CTO of the year from Silicon Valley Business Journal (2019-2020)".

    He has a Ph.D. in Information and Communications Engineering from the Univ. of Tokyo, Japan, a Master's degree in Communication Systems from Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai, India, and a Bachelor's degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering from NIT, Warangal, India. He mentored over 100 undergrad/graduate students, delivered 400+ keynote/invited talks, co-authored 2 books, 100+ publications/patents, and served on 40+ IEEE conferences committees. He has been involved in developing industry-academia partnerships in Canada, US, UK and India and serves on several advisory boards including Global Semiconductor Alliance, Gartner/Evanta CIO Council, London Digital Twin Research Center, and the Center for Growth Markets at Univ. of California, Berkeley.

  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Feb 17, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Ian Tobasco, Univ. Illinois Chicago

    Talk Title: Simple Rules for the Wrinkle Patterns of Confined Elastic Shells

    Abstract: Dried fruits wrinkle for the same reason that leaves and flowers do -” mechanical instabilities arising from a mismatch in lengths. Can such geometric incompatibilities be used to design and control wrinkle patterns at will? This talk will discuss the possibility of designing wrinkle patterns in the large using a recently derived model for the wrinkles of confined elastic shells. After recalling the basic mechanics and introducing our model, we show how it can be solved by hand in many cases to predict the wrinkled topography. Solving this model produces a few geometric rules, which explain the layout of the wrinkle peaks and troughs across examples. These simple rules reproduce the patterns seen in numerous experiments and simulations, even ones that exhibit a surprising coexistence between orderly wrinkles and a more disordered response. Knowing such rules for wrinkles opens the way towards designer wrinkle patterns, with potential applications from flexible electronics to synthetic skins.

    Biography: Ian Tobasco is an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science. He holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, and a B.S.E. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan.

    His research on the calculus of variations and partial differential equations concerns problems that sit at the interface of mathematics, physics, and engineering, where advances in pure mathematical analysis can lead to scientific breakthroughs in the lab and vice versa. His recent work involves the use of energy minimization to explain and classify the zoo of wrinkling, crumpling, and folding patterns exhibited by thin elastic sheets. Other interests include the design of optimal transport mechanisms in fluid dynamics and their comparison with naturally occurring turbulent transport, as well as the variational analysis of spin glasses.
