  • Robinhood Workshop / Info Session

    Wed, Oct 06, 2021 @ 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    Workshops & Infosessions


    Robinhood is on a mission to democratize finance for all. In order to make that mission a reality, we hire great talent from varied educational backgrounds. At Robinhood, we leverage CodeSignal during the initial interview process which hosts a general coding assessment that measures the following skills - coding, implementation, problem solving and speed. With this in mind, we are offering CS students help during the interview process, primarily focused on the technical take-home assessment.
    Robinhood's University Recruiting team is hosting a "CodeSignal Tips and Tricks'' event on Wednesday, October 6th from 1:00pm - 2:30pm PT. In the first 30 minutes of the session, we will review CodeSignal's assessment process, answer questions around how to best navigate the take home portion, and give tips on getting the best possible score. The final hour will consist of breakout sessions, where Robinhood engineers will demonstrate how to best solve the most missed tasks on the assessment.
    This event will be hosted on Zoom where you'll be able to chat and ask any questions you have with the speakers and other attendees using Zoom's chat and Q+A features. Please RSVP and expect to receive the Zoom link 15 minutes prior to the event. Schedule (all times in PST):

    1:00pm - Welcome
    1:05pm - CodeSignal Assessment Process
    1:30pm - Breakout Session w/Robinhood Engineers

    We're looking forward to seeing you then!

  • Center of Autonomy and AI, Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and the Internet of Things, and Ming Hsieh Institute Seminar Series

    Wed, Oct 06, 2021 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Monroe Kennedy III, Mechanical Engineering, with a courtesy appointment in Computer Science at Stanford University

    Talk Title: Considerations for Human-Robot Collaboration

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

    Abstract: The field of robotics has evolved over the past few decades. We've seen robots progress from the automation of repetitive tasks in manufacturing to the autonomy of mobilizing in unstructured environments to the cooperation of swarm robots that are centralized or decentralized. These abilities have required advances in robotic hardware, modeling, and artificial intelligence. The next frontier is robots collaborating in complex tasks with human teammates, in environments traditionally configured for humans. While solutions to this challenge must utilize all of the advances of robotics, the human element adds a unique aspect that must be addressed. Collaborating with a human teammate means that the robot must have a contextual understanding of the task as well as all participant's roles. We will discuss what constitutes an effective teammate and how we can capture this behavior in a robotic collaborator.

    Biography: Monroe Kennedy III is an assistant professor in Mechanical Engineering and courtesy of Computer Science at Stanford University. He leads the Assistive Robotics and Manipulation laboratory (arm.stanford.edu), which develops robotic assistants by focusing on combining modeling and control techniques together with machine learning tools. Together, these techniques will improve robotic performance for tasks that are highly dynamic, require dexterity, have considerable complexity, and require human-robot collaboration. Prof. Kennedy received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics and Masters in Robotics at the University of Pennsylvania and was a member of the GRASP Lab. He was the recipient of GEM and NSF graduate fellowships. During his graduate studies, his research focused on increasing the abilities and effectiveness of robotic mobile manipulators performing complex service tasks in unstructured environments with considerations for working alongside human collaborators.

  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Oct 06, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Diego Donzis, TAMU

    Talk Title: Rethinking Compressible Turbulence: From New Regimes to Extreme Simulations

    Abstract: Compressible turbulence is much more common than incompressible turbulence and plays a critical role in countless natural and engineering systems such as astrophysical flows, high-speed aerodynamics, turbulent combustion, among many others. However, much less is known about compressible turbulence due to its larger parameter space; the additional complexity associated with coupling between hydrodynamics and thermodynamics; and the greater challenges to develop theory, attain realistic conditions in simulations, and conduct carefully controlled experiments.

    In the first part of this talk I will review recent work that highlights some qualitative differences observed in compressible turbulence using a massive database of very well-resolved direct numerical simulations. After some illustrations of specific compressibility effects on turbulent flows, I will show why current approaches as "corrections" to well-known laws in incompressible turbulence present fundamental problems and then `provide a new alternative interpretation of statistical equilibria in an expanded parameter space in which new compressible universal scaling laws can be found. In the second this part, I will present current computational challenges to achieve more realistic conditions and a novel numerical approach in which the main well-known obstacles towards simulations on exascale systems and beyond can be removed. We will present some examples for smooth flows as well as flows with shocks and reactions.

    Biography: Diego A. Donzis is an associate professor and Director of Graduate Programs in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University where he directs the Turbulence and Advanced Computations Lab (TACL). He received his PhD from the Georgia Institute of Technology and continued his research at the University of Maryland and the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Italy. His main interests are in high-performance computing at extreme scales, and the physics of turbulence and turbulent mixing in incompressible and compressible flows. Among his major recognitions Dr. Donzis received an NSF CAREER award, the Francois Frenkiel Award from the American Physical Society, TAMU Dean of Engineering Excellence Award, three TEES Faculty Awards for research, the McElmurry Teaching Excellence Award, and is a best graduate from Argentina by the National Academy of Engineering. In 2018, he was named a Presidential Impact Fellow by Texas A&M University for his scholarly influence. He is an AIAA Associate Fellow.
