    Restricted Isometry Property of Gaussian Random Projection for Low-Dimensional Subspaces

    Professor Yuantao Gu
    Tsinghua University
    Beijing, China

    Abstract: Dimensionality reduction is in demand to reduce the complexity of solving large-scale problems with data lying in latent low-dimensional structures in machine learning and computer version. Motivated by such need, in this talk I will introduce the Restricted Isometry Property (RIP) of Gaussian random projections for low-dimensional subspaces in R^N, and prove that the projection Frobenius norm distance between any two subspaces spanned by the projected data in R^n for n

  • Modeling, Analysis and Design of Resilient Cyber-Physical Systems

    Tue, Feb 20, 2018 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Bruno Sinopoli , Carnegie Mellon University

    Talk Title: Modeling, Analysis and Design of Resilient Cyber-Physical Systems

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

    Abstract: Recent advances in sensing, communication and computing allow cost effective deployment in the physical world of large-scale networks of sensors and actuators, e.g. Internet of Things, enabling fine grain monitoring and control of a multitude of physical systems and infrastructures. Such systems, called cyber-physical, lie at the intersection of sensing, communication, computing and control. The close interplay among these fields and the resulting complexity render independent design of subsystems a risky approach, as separation of concerns does not constitute a realistic assumption in real world scenarios. It is therefore imperative to derive new models and methodologies to allow analysis and design of robust and secure cyber-physical systems (CPS). In this talk I will present an overview of recent research on the topic and discuss future directions.

    Biography: Bruno Sinopoli received the Dr. Eng. degree from the University of Padova in 1998 and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, in 2003 and 2005 respectively. After a postdoctoral position at Stanford University, Dr. Sinopoli joined the faculty at Carnegie Mellon University where he is full professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering with courtesy appointments in Mechanical Engineering and in the Robotics Institute and co-director of the Smart Infrastructure Institute, a research center aimed at advancing innovation in the modeling analysis and design of smart infrastructure. Dr. Sinopoli was awarded the 2006 Eli Jury Award for outstanding research achievement in the areas of systems, communications, control and signal processing at U.C. Berkeley, the 2010 George Tallman Ladd Research Award from Carnegie Mellon University and the NSF Career award in 2010. His research interests include the modeling, analysis and design of Secure by Design Cyber-Physical Systems with applications to Energy Systems, Interdependent Infrastructures and Internet of Things.
