  • Human Factors in Aviation Maintenance

    Fri, Apr 26, 2024 @ 08:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Aviation Safety and Security Program

    University Calendar

    This course is designed to provide knowledge and understanding of human factors in the realm of aviation safety with a focus on the role of the maintainer. It presents human factors issues as conditions/hazards that must be managed. Specific issues such as fatigue management, deviations from approved procedures, situation awareness, and the Dirty Dozen are presented. Data collection methodologies such as MEDA and LOSA are examined as viable safety information methods and hazard identification tools in an organization’s SMS. This course satisfies the Human Factors Course requirement for the USC Safety & Security Certificate.

  • AAI-CCI-MHI Seminar on CPS

    Fri, Apr 26, 2024 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Joerg Lahann, Professor University of Michigan

    Talk Title: Protein Nanoparticles as multifunctional drug delivery carriers

    Series: EE598 Seminar Series

    Abstract: Precise control of the physical and biochemical properties of nanoparticle-based drug delivery vehicles is a
    prerequisite for effective transport of drugs across a range of biological barriers. To date, the range of biodegradable
    macromolecular systems with appropriate biocompatibility, low levels of immunogenicity and extended structural stability
    that can be prepared at scale remains rather limited. Towards that end, nanoparticles comprised of protein/polymer
    conjugates offer a range of unique features, such as biodegradability and extended in vivo stability, active targeting and
    stimuli-responsiveness, or the potential for delivery of small-molecule drugs and biopharmaceuticals.
    Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) co-jetting, an adaptive manufacturing process that involves transferring two or more
    capillary needles in a side-by-side configuration, can be used to create a wide range of multicompartmental protein/
    polymer nanoparticles. The protein nanoparticles combine the processability of synthetic polymers with the biological
    properties of proteins. In the context of glioblastoma multiforme, protein nanoparticles have been devised that enable
    systemic delivery of RNAi to intracranial brain tumors. Protein nanoparticles that can enable controlled release of
    combination drugs from the same nanoparticle will also be discussed

    Biography: Joerg Lahann is the Wolfgang Pauli Collegiate Professor of Chemical Engineering. Since 2012, he has been the
    founding director of the University of Michigan Biointerfaces Institute. Prof. Lahann is a co-author of more than 325
    publications including papers in Science, Nature Materials, Nature Biotechnology, or PNAS and has contributed to 50
    patents and patent applications. He is an elected fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI), the American
    Association for the Advancement of the Sciences (AAAS), and the American Institute for Medical and Biological
    Engineering (AIMBE). He has been selected by Technology Review as one of the top 100 young investigators and the
    recipient of the 2007 Nanoscale Science and Engineering Award, a NSF-CAREER award, and both a single-PI and a
    team Idea award (2006 & 2011) from the US Department of Defense. Prof. Lahann has contributed to the development
    of 3D printing methods for ultraporous, precisely engineered organoids, multicompartmental nanoparticles for drug
    delivery applications, and vapor-based polymer coatings.

  • AI Seminar: Staring into the Abyss and Eating Glass

    Fri, Apr 26, 2024 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Rajiv Maheswaran, Former Second Spectrum CEO, USC Faculty

    Talk Title: Staring into the Abyss and Eating Glass

    Abstract: Rajiv spent a decade as faculty at USC and then a decade building a startup.  He will briefly outline the path that took him from one to the other and answer questions about the adventures and misadventures and the similarities and differences in the journeys.

    Biography: Rajiv Maheswaran was the CEO and Co-Founder of Second Spectrum, a startup that used computer vision and machine learning to automate next-generation data collection and real-time video augmentation in sports, creating software for teams, leagues and media. Second Spectrum clients have spanned the top leagues in sports including the NBA (where all teams are clients), NFL, English Premier League and top media partners such as Amazon (winning an Emmy for NFL Prime Vision), CBS (winning an Emmy for RomoVision), ESPN (NBA Marvel Arena of Heroes), and NBC (Premier League DataCast). Prior to Second Spectrum, Rajiv was a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California’s Department of Computer Science and Project Leader at the Information Sciences Institute where he and Second Spectrum COO / Co-Founder Yu-Han Chang co-directed the Computational Behavior Group. Rajiv has written over 100 publications in artificial intelligence, control theory, data visualization, decision theory and game theory. Rajiv and Yu-Han received the USC Viterbi School of Engineering Use-Inspired Research Award, and they are the only two-time winners of the Alpha Award for Best Research Paper at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. Rajiv received a B.S. degree in Applied Mathematics, Engineering and Physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
