  • Repeating EventSix Sigma Black Belt

    Tue, Nov 01, 2022 @ 09:00 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).

  • Photonics Seminar - Aydogan Ozcan, Tuesday, November 1 at 1:30pm in EEB 248

    Tue, Nov 01, 2022 @ 01:30 PM - 03:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Aydogan Ozcan, UCLA

    Talk Title: Diffractive Optical Networks & Computational Imaging Without a Computer

    Series: Photonics Seminar Series

    Abstract: I will discuss diffractive optical networks designed by deep learning to all-optically implement various complex functions as the input light diffracts through spatially-engineered surfaces. These diffractive processors designed by deep learning have various applications, e.g., all-optical image analysis, feature detection, object classification, computational imaging and seeing through diffusers, also enabling task-specific camera designs and new optical components for spatial, spectral and temporal beam shaping and spatially-controlled wavelength division multiplexing. These deep learning-designed diffractive systems can broadly impact (1) all-optical statistical inference engines, (2) computational camera and microscope designs and (3) inverse design of optical systems that are task-specific. In this talk, I will give examples of each group, enabling transformative capabilities for various applications of interest in e.g., autonomous systems, defense/security, telecommunications as well as biomedical imaging and sensing.
