    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Chennupati Jagadish, Australian National University, Canberra, ACT 2601, Australia

    Talk Title: Semiconductor Nanowires for Optoelectronics Applications

    Abstract: Semiconductor Nanowires are considered as building blocks for next generation electronics and photonics. In this talk, I will discuss about growth of Semiconductor Nanowires using Vapor-Lqiuid-Solid (VLS) and Selective Area Epitaxy (SAE) methods and discuss about materials issues related to nanowires. I will present results on GaAs nanowire lasers, multi-quantum well nanowire lasers, zinc doped GaAs and InP nanowire lasers and nanopositioning of these lasers for flexible electronics applications. I will discuss about use of these nanowires for THz detectors, Solar Cells and neuroscience Applications.

    Biography: Professor Jagadish is a Distinguished Professor and Head of Semiconductor Optoelectronics and Nanotechnology Group in the Research School of Physics and Engineering, Australian National University. He has served as Vice-President and Secretary Physical Sciences of the Australian Academy of Science during 2012-2016. He is currently serving as President of IEEE Photonics Society and President of Australian Materials Research Society. Prof. Jagadish is an Editor/Associate editor of 6 Journals (EIC-Progress in Quantum Electronics), 3 book series and serves on editorial boards of 20 other journals. He has published more than 880 research papers (600 journal papers), holds 5 US patents, co-authored a book, co-edited 11 books and edited 12 conference proceedings and 15 special issues of Journals.
    He won the 2000 IEEE Millennium Medal and received Distinguished Lecturer awards from IEEE NTC, IEEE LEOS and IEEE EDS.

  • NL Seminar-Natural Language Processing in the Wild: Opportunities & Challenges

    Fri, Sep 07, 2018 @ 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Vivek Srikumar , The University of Utah

    Talk Title: Natural Language Processing in the Wild Opportunities and Challenges

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: Natural language processing NLP sees potential applicability in a broad array of user facing applications. To realize this potential, however, we need to address several challenges related to representations, data availability and scalability. In this talk, I will discuss these concerns and how we may overcome them. First, as a motivating example of NLP's broad reach, I will present our recent work on using language technology to improve mental health treatment. Then, I will focus on some of the challenges that need to be addressed, with a specific focus on scalability. The motivating question is How can we systematically speed up the entire NLP pipeline without sacrificing accuracy? As two concrete answers to this question, I will describe our recent results that show techniques for rethinking feature extraction and inference to make trained classifiers significantly faster.


    Biography: Vivek Srikumar is an assistant professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in 2013 and was a post-doctoral scholar at Stanford University. His research lies in the areas of natural learning processing and machine learning and has primarily been driven by questions arising from the need to learn structured representations of text using little or indirect supervision and to scale NLP to large problems. His work has been published in various AI, NLP and machine learning venues and received the best paper award at EMNLP 2014. His work has been supported by grants and awards from NSF, BSF, Google and Intel.
