  • CS Colloquium: Nengkun Yu (University of Technology Sydney) - Efficient verification and testing of quantum programs

    Wed, Mar 30, 2022 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Nengkun Yu , University of Technology Sydney

    Talk Title: Efficient verification and testing of quantum programs

    Series: CS Colloquium

    Abstract: Quantum can solve complex problems that classical computers will never be able to. In recent years, significant efforts have been devoted to building quantum computers to solve real-world problems. To ensure the correctness of quantum programs, we develop verification techniques and testing algorithms for quantum programs. In the first part of this talk, I will overview efficient reasoning about quantum programs by developing verification techniques and tools that leverage the power of Birkhoff & von Neumann quantum logic. In the second part, I will review my work on quantum state tomography, i.e., learning the classical description of quantum states, which closes a long-standing gap between the upper and lower bounds for dynamic testing the properties of a quantum program's output.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium

    Biography: Nengkun Yu is an associate professor in the Centre for Quantum Software and Information, the University of Technology Sydney. He received his B.S. and PhD degrees from the Department of Computer Science and Technology, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in July of 2008 and 2013. He won a distinguished paper award at OOPSLA 2020 and a distinguished paper award at PLDI 2021. His research interest focuses on quantum computing.

    Speaker: Nir Piterman, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Gothenburg, Sweden

    Talk Title: Synthesis From Temporal Specifications

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

    Abstract: In this talk I will present the GR[1] approach to synthesis, the automatic production of designs from their temporal logic specifications. We are interested in reactive systems, systems that continuously interact with other programs, users, or their environment and specifications in linear temporal logic. Classical solutions to synthesis use either two player games or tree automata. I will give a short introduction to the technique of using two player games for synthesis.

    The classical solution to synthesis requires the usage of deterministic automata. This solution is 2EXPTIME-complete, is quite complicated, and does not work well in practice. I will present a syntactic approach that restricts the kind of properties users are allowed to write. It turns out that this approach is general enough and can be extended to cover many properties written in practice.

    Time permitting, I will present results that support the usage of synthesis in model-driven development and robot control.


    Biography: Nir Piterman is a professor of computer science at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. Before that he was an associate professor at the University of Leicester, held postdoctoral research positions at Imperial College London and the Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne, and completed his PhD at the Weizmann Institute of Science. His research interests include formal verification and automata theory. Particularly, he has worked on model checking, temporal logic, reactive synthesis, and game solving. His current research is funded by the European Research Council (ERC), the Swedish Research Council (VR), and the Wallenberg Autonomous Systems Program (WASP(. He is currently the editor in chief of the journal Formal Methods in System Design.

    Robinhood - CodeSignal Workshop (Virtual)

    Wednesday, March 30, 2022
    12pm - 1:30pm

    Sign up link HERE: https://ripplematch.com/t/6e5dd80d

    Robinhood is on a mission to democratize finance for all. In order to make that mission a reality, we hire great talent from varied educational backgrounds. At Robinhood, we leverage CodeSignal during the initial interview process which hosts a general coding assessment that measures the following skills: coding, implementation, problem solving and speed. With this in mind, we are offering CS students help during the interview process, primarily focused on the technical take-home assessment.
    Robinhood's University Recruiting team is hosting a "CodeSignal Workshop" on Wednesday, March 30th from 12:00pm - 1:30pm PT. In the first 30 minutes of the session, we will review CodeSignal's assessment process, answer questions around how to best navigate the take home portion, and give tips on getting the best possible score. The final hour will consist of breakout sessions, where Robinhood engineers will demonstrate how to best solve the most missed tasks on the assessment.

    This event will be hosted on Zoom where you will be able to chat and ask any questions you have with the speakers and other attendees. Please RSVP and expect to receive the event link 15 minutes prior to the event.

    Schedule (all times in PT):
    1:00pm - Welcome
    1:05pm - CodeSignal Assessment Process
    1:30pm - Breakout Session with Robinhood Engineers

    We are looking forward to seeing you then!

    Speaker: Shawn Shadden, University of California, Berkeley

    Talk Title: Computational models of cardiovascular function

    Abstract: Combining medical imaging and other forms of clinical data with first principles-, phenomenological- and/or statistical-based computational modeling has become an important avenue in cardiovascular research, including for disease diagnosis, treatment planning and scientific discovery. In this talk, I will provide some background on the field of computational modeling of cardiovascular biomechanics and will discuss some of our recent work focused on methods to improve personalization and efficiency of this modeling process. Namely, I will discuss developments on machine learning approaches to facilitate image-based model construction and parameterization, some of our work on reduced order modeling to facilitate efficient computation of common physical quantities of clinical importance, and where we might be headed.

    Biography: Shawn Shadden is a Professor and Vice Chair of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley and a core member of the UCSF-UC Berkeley Graduate Program in Bioengineering. His research focuses on the computational modeling of cardiovascular biomechanics and the advancement of theoretical and numerical methods to quantify complex fluid flow. He is recipient of an NSF CAREER Award, a Bakar Faculty Fellow Award, Hellman Faculty Fellow Award, and the American Heart Association Established Investigator Award. His lab helps develop the SimVascular software platform, which is broadly used in the field of computational cardiovascular research.
