  • Viterbi Live

    Wed, Apr 29, 2020 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Alumni

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Ivan Bermejo-Moreno, Professor

    Talk Title: Addressing the Ventilator Shortage and Solutions Discussion

    Abstract: Dr. Ivan Bermejo-Moreno, an assistant professor in the USC Viterbi Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, will lead a discussion on the current ventilator shortage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us as he shares his findings on ventilator design from the standpoint of fluid mechanics in this 60-minute webinar. He will define the minimal requirements necessary for ventilator functionality, describe several ongoing open-source emergency ventilator efforts worldwide, and cover supply chain, cost, and how to best scale production. This webinar will feature an introduction from Dr. SK Gupta and a live Q&A session.

    This session will be hosted on Zoom. Links and passwords will be sent to all registered participants the morning of April 29.

    For any questions, please email us at engalums@usc.edu.

    Biography: Dr. Bermejo-Moreno received his Ph.D. in aeronautics (2008) from the California Institute of Technology. Afterwards, he held a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Center for Turbulence Research, Stanford University/NASA Ames Research Center (2009-2014). He joined the USC Viterbi Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering as an assistant professor in 2015.

    His research combines numerical methods, physical modeling and high performance computing for the simulation and analysis of turbulent fluidflows involving multi-physics phenomena.

    Host: Viterbi Advancement

    Speaker: Sicun Gao, University of California San Diego

    Talk Title: Automated Reasoning for Reliable Autonomy

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

    Abstract: We face grand challenges as computer systems start engaging us physically with high levels of autonomy. Their tight integration of computational and mechanical components generates behaviors that have not been well-studied in computer science or control engineering. The AI components in these systems complicate software execution flows with nonlinear functions, probabilistic reasoning, and error-prone numerical computation. I will describe a framework for automating the design and implementation of reliable autonomous systems, and the need for powerful algorithmic approaches that combine the full power of combinatorial search, numerical optimization, and statistical learning. I will discuss challenges and opportunities in these directions and how they affect the practicality of autonomy.

    Biography: Sicun Gao is an Assistant Professor in Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego. He works on automated reasoning and design automation for autonomous and cyber-physical systems. He received BS from Peking University, PhD from Carnegie Mellon University, and was a postdoctoral researcher at MIT. His awards include the Air Force Young Investigator Award, Silver Medal for the Kurt Godel Research Fellowship Prize, and Honorable Mention for the CMU School of Computer Science Distinguished Doctoral Dissertation.
