  • Repeating EventSix Sigma Black Belt

    Fri, Oct 07, 2022 @ 08:00 AM - 05:00 PM

    Executive Education

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Abstract: USC Viterbi School of Engineering's Six Sigma Black 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 Black Belt, you will be equipped to support and champion a Six Sigma implementation in your organization. To earn the USC Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate, you will be required to pass the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineer's Black belt exam (administered on the final day of the course).

    PhD Candidate: George Papadimitriou

    Title: Cyberinfrastructure Management for Dynamic Data Driven Applications

    Committee:
    Ewa Deelman
    Rafael Ferreira da Silva
    Ramesh Govindan
    Victor Prasanna
    Aikiro Nakano

    Abstract:
    Computational science today depends on many complex, data-intensive applications operating on distributed datasets that originate from a variety of scientific instruments and data repositories. Moreover, modern cyberinfrastructure has a highly distributed and heterogeneous character, with compute sites in multiple locations offering access to both commodity hardware and accelerators, but they are not close to the data.
    Workflow management systems and scientific workflows are great tools in leveraging the infrastructure given to them and making data available to where a computation will take place. They automate science, making it portable and reproducible. However, until now, even though workflow management systems are aware of the infrastructure they don't control elements of it. Software defined federated cyberinfrastructure has paved the way for workflow management systems to control how the cyberinfrastructure is configured allowing for data access and network optimisations based on the needs of a science application.
    In this work we explore approaches and techniques to programmatically configure and control the cyberinfrastructure based on the requirements of an application and we provide solutions in efficiently sharing the allocated network resources among workflow ensembles.

  • MHI ISSS Seminar - Dr. Elad Alon, Friday, October 7 at 2pm in EEB 132 and Zoom

    Fri, Oct 07, 2022 @ 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Elad Alon, CEO, Blue Cheetah Analog Design

    Talk Title: Reshaping the A/MS Design Industry with Generators

    Series: Integrated Systems

    Abstract: The semiconductor industry is in the midst of multiple technological, societal, and market trends - including a resurgence of customized silicon solutions, global capacity shortages, and the end of scaling derived reductions in cost per transistor - that are all aligning to drive surging demand for IC
    designs. Accordingly, demand has never been higher for the A/MS components / sub-systems underlying all modern chips, and yet the supply of A/MS design engineers has at best remained flat over the last ~10- 20 years. In this talk I will describe how generator-based design - where we algorithmically codify and
    capture expert engineers' methodologies - allow us to "force multiply" the efforts of expert designers and rapidly realize customized, process-portable A/MS designs.

    Biography: Dr. Elad Alon is the CEO and co-founder of Blue Cheetah Analog Design, which is leveraging generator-based design methodologies to rapidly deliver tailored A/MS designs to meet our customers' diverse needs. He is an Adjunct Professor at UC Berkeley in the EECS Department, where he was a Full Professor until Jul. 2021. He has served as an advisor or consultant to many semiconductor and electronics companies, including Lion Semiconductor (acquired by Cirrus Logic), Ayar Labs, Intel, Xilinx, Cadence, Wilocity (acquired by Qualcomm), and Cadence. He has been recognized with multiple best-paper (from the ISSCC, VLSI, and CICC conferences)
    as well as teaching awards, has led several multi-institutional research programs, and was elevated to the rank of IEEE Fellow in 2020.
