  • Advanced Manufacturing Seminar Series

    Fri, Sep 11, 2020 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Alumni

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Behrokh Khoshnevis, President and CEO, Contour Crafting Corporation

    Talk Title: Robotic Construction by Contour Crafting -“ Future Impacts on Earth and Beyond

    Abstract: The nature of construction has remained intensely manual throughout recorded history. Unlike in manufacturing, the growth of automation in construction has been slow. A promising new automation approach is construction scale 3D printing, which has been pioneered by the speaker with the invention of Contour Crafting, a hybrid technology combining concrete 3D printing and a variety of robotics fabrication and assembly tasks with the aim of automating the entire construction activity. The technology also has astounding environmental and energy impact potentials. The entry level implication is especially profound for emergency shelter construction and low-income housing. Exploring possible applications of CC in building on other planets has also been pursued by the speaker through several projects supported by NASA. This new mode of construction will be one of the very few feasible approaches for building using in-situ material on planets such as the Moon and Mars, which are being targeted for human colonization before the end of the century.

    Biography: Behrokh (Berok) Khoshnevis has over 100 US and international patents as well as nearly 200 refereed technical publications. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors inductee, a Fellow of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, a Fellow of the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineering, a Fellow of the Society for Computer Simulation and a NASA Innovative Advanced Concept Fellow. Because of his Contour Crafting invention he received the 2014 Grand Prize among 1000+ globally competing technologies in the Create the Future design contest which was organized by NASA. Contour Crafting was selected earlier as one of the top 25 out of more than 4000 candidate inventions by the History Channel Modern Marvels program and the National Inventor Hall of Fame.

  • USC Probability Statistics Seminar Talk of General Interest

    Fri, Sep 11, 2020 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Katherine Bouman , Caltech

    Talk Title: Capturing the First Image of a Black Hole and Designing the Future of Black Hole Imaging

    Abstract: The Math Department is having a talk on Friday, September 11 at 330PM PST and invites the CS community to attend.

    This talk will present the methods and procedures used to produce the first image of a black hole from the Event Horizon Telescope, as well as discuss future developments for black hole imaging. It had been theorized for decades that a black hole would leave a "shadow" on a background of hot gas. Taking a picture of this black hole shadow would help to address a number of important scientific questions, both on the nature of black holes and the validity of general relativity. Unfortunately, due to its small size, traditional imaging approaches require an Earth-sized radio telescope. In this talk, I discuss techniques the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration has developed to photograph a black hole using the Event Horizon Telescope, a network of telescopes scattered across the globe. Imaging a black hole's structure with this computational telescope required us to reconstruct images from sparse measurements, heavily corrupted by atmospheric error. The talk will also discuss future developments, including new imaging techniques and how we are developing machine learning methods to help design future telescope arrays.
