  • Repeating EventSix Sigma Green Belt for Process Improvement

    Thu, Aug 11, 2022 @ 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM

    Executive Education

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Talk Title: Six Sigma Green Belt

    Abstract: USC Viterbi School of Engineering's Six Sigma Green Belt for Process Improvement, offered in partnership with the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers, allows professionals to learn how to integrate principles of business, statistics, and engineering to achieve tangible results. Master the use of Six Sigma to quantify the critical quality issues in your company. Once the issues have been quantified, statistics can be applied to provide probabilities of success and failure. Six Sigma methods increase productivity and enhance quality. As a USC Six Sigma Green Belt, you will be equipped to support and champion a Six Sigma implementation in your organization. To earn the USC Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate, you will be required to pass the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineer's green belt exam (administered on the final day of the course).

  • NL Seminar - Quantum Natural Language Processing

    Thu, Aug 11, 2022 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Mitch Mithun, USC/ISI

    Talk Title: Quantum Natural Language Processing

    Abstract: REMINDER:
    Meeting hosts only admit guests that they know to the Zoom meeting. Hence, you are highly encouraged to use your USC account to sign into Zoom.

    If you are an outside visitor, please inform us at (nlg DASH seminar DASH host AT isi DOR edu beforehand so we will be aware of your attendance and let you in.

    In-person attendance will be permitted for USC ISI faculty, staff, students only. Open to the public virtually via the zoom registration link and online.

    Quantum Natural Language Processing is a very nascent field which deals with using quantum computers to solve natural language processing problems. Quantum advantage speed up for QNLP tasks has already been established in literature and has been attributed to the fact that quantum models for natural language processing canonically incorporate linguistic meanings with rich linguistic structure, most notably grammar. The fact that it takes a quantum like model to combine meaning and structure, establishes QNLP as quantum native, on par with simulation of quantum systems. Moreover, the now leading Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum NISQ paradigm for encoding classical data on quantum hardware, variational quantum circuits, makes NISQ exceptionally QNLP friendly linguistic structure can be encoded as a free lunch, in contrast to the apparently exponentially expensive classical encoding of grammar.

    In this talk, Mitch will first introduce some quantum mechanics enroute to talking about quantum computation and QNLP. Specifically, he will talk about quantum algorithms for incorporating compositionality, providing some basic conceptual and mathematical foundations needed to understand QNLP, and do so in computer scientist friendly terms. He will end with talking about the state of the art in QNLP

    Biography: Mitch is a post doctoral researcher at ISI working with Marjorie Freedman in the networking and cyber security division. Mitch, recently graduated from his PhD from University of Arizona before joining ISI as a postdoc. Before that, he worked in the software industry for 10 plus years. He got his masters and undergrad degrees from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, India. His research interests include natural language processing, cyber security and quantum computation.
