  • Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Seminar

    Tue, Mar 30, 2021 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Sonny Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jack W. Baker, Ph.D., Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Stanford University

    Talk Title: Simulation of regional post-earthquake recovery for performance-based

    Abstract: State of the art performance-based earthquake engineering (PBEE) procedures such as FEMA P-58 generally treat buildings as islands, with respect to modeling regional impacts and post-earthquake recovery. This talk presents an overview of recent research to advance direct simulation of regional impacts and recovery within a PBEE framework. Specifically, work to scale single-building performance-based assessments to a regional scale is demonstrated. Then, refinements to include the impact of damaged roads and neighboring buildings on repair and recovery timelines is presented. Finally,a coupled assessment of economic and physical impacts is illustrated, in order to account for private-sector decision-making and regional industrial capacity constraints on recovery. Collectively, these developments move us closer to regional-scale performance assessments that can incorporate a broader range of factors in forecasts, and thus can support a broader range of decision-making to increase community resilience.


    Biography: Professor Baker's work focuses on the development and use of probabilistic and statistical tools for managing risk due to extreme loads on the built environment. He studies risk to spatially distributed systems, characterization of earthquake ground motions, and probabilistic risk assessments for a number of types of structures. Professor Baker joined Stanford in 2006 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich), where he was a visiting researcher in the Department of Structural Engineering. He has degrees in Structural Engineering (Stanford, M.S. 2002,Ph.D. 2005), Statistics (Stanford, M.S. 2004) and Mathematics and Physics(Whitman College, B.A. 2000). His awards include the Shah Family Innovation Prize from the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, the CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation, the Early Achievement Research Award from the International Association for Structural Safety and Reliability, the Walter L. Huber Prize from ASCE, the Helmut Krawinkler Award from the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California, and the Eugene L. Grant Award for excellence in teaching from Stanford.

  • Executive Coffee with Warner Bros

    Tue, Mar 30, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Student Activity


    This event is hosted by the USC Entertainment Technology Center and CS students are encouraged to attend.

    The -Executive Coffee with- program at the USC Entertainment Technology Center connects USC students interested in media and entertainment issues with media & entertainment industry executives.

    It is a win-win. The students have a structured low-pressure discussion with a senior industry executive. The executive explores the perspective and ideas of students with an interest in a topic that they care about.

    Tuesday March 30, 12:00pm-1:00pm

    Lead Executives:
    Renard Jenkins, VP Content Transmission and Production, WarnerMedia, Warner Bros.
    Michael Zink, VP Emerging and Creative Technologies, WarnerMedia, Warner Bros.

    Student/Executive Discussion Topic: AI and Ethics

    What is the future of Artificial Intelligence and the ethical issues associated with that future? What are the ramifications of the democratization of AI? What does 'diversity' and 'bias' mean in AI development, and can the tests for it transcend regional culture? How will AI coexist with humans, and should digital twins of real people be created?

    Students should go to https://bit.ly/2ZXlgf3 for more information and to fill out the sign-up application.
