    Workshops & Infosessions

    We are inviting you to a webinar with Vocareum to learn about their new AI Notebook for hands-on AI education. Since adopting Vocareum in 2015, USC has integrated the Vocareum platform into nearly 100 courses, with around 2,000 students benefiting each year from its powerful capabilities. The Vocareum AI Notebook seeks to add to this impact, making AI education more engaging and efficient for professors and students.

    In the webinar, we'll introduce the Vocareum AI Notebook's key features, including cost-effective GPU Batch Processing, OpenAI Integration, and simplified deployment and collaboration tools. We'll also touch on training job scheduling, efficient large dataset delivery, persistent data storage, a comprehensive assessment suite for streamlined grading, and seamless integration with popular Learning Management Systems.

  • Intel Engineering Day

    Tue, Sep 19, 2023 @ 10:30 AM - 03:30 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    Workshops & Infosessions

    IMPORTANT NOTE: This is an on-campus, outdoor tabling event. RSVP to let Intel know you are coming, but know that an RSVP does not guarantee you will meet an Intel rep. Students are met on a first-come first-serve basis.

    The Intel Engineering Day Tabling event is geared towards students stopping by to learn more about Intel and the Semiconductor industry. With many technological advances created by Intel, we're only beginning to create the greatest technology in history.

    We encourage engineering students to stop by and learn more about Intel, and meet with our team.

    We are especially interested in the following majors and all degree levels:

    Electrical Engineering
    Electrical & Computer Engineering

    We look forward to meeting you!"

  • PHD Thesis Proposal (Shushan Arakelyan)

    Tue, Sep 19, 2023 @ 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    University Calendar

    Thesis proposal committee members:
    Xiang Ren (Chair)
    Nenad Medvidovic

    Jay Kuo
    Mukund Raghothaman

    Successful deployment of any AI model requires generalization to previously unseen, real-world scenarios. Lack of generalization in models can lead to outcomes ranging from reduced performance to potential legal liabilities. In this thesis, I explore generalization challenges in large language models for code processing. I will discuss three different generalization concerns that language models for code processing can exhibit, and present my progress in building models that can overcome those. 1) I will start by discussing compositional generalization issues, where models must adapt to previously unseen instruction combinations 2) Next I will talk about out-of-domain generalization, and how distribution shifts within single projects or corporations can affect model performance, and how to overcome it. 3) Finally, I will talk about generalization of advanced models to programming languages with fewer resources.
