    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).

  • Virtual seminar Causal Dependencies in Multivariate Time Series

    Wed, Nov 02, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Sunil Kumar Vuppala, Director, Data Science, Ericsson

    Talk Title: Causal Dependencies in Multivariate Time Series

    Abstract: The talk starts with a motivation for casual analysis. Correlation does not imply causation. Similarly, lack of correlation does not imply lack of causation. How can we detect causality in complex systems such as telecom networks? The talk covers 3Wh of Causality (What, why, where). It covers taxonomy of time series casual discovery, an overview of the methods and techniques such as Granger causality, Convergent Cross Mapping, information theoretic approaches, graphical approaches and ML approaches. How can we connect any observed event to possibly a set of specific causal events? Why do we need counterfactual interventions for causal intensity? The talk describes the relevance of causality in telecom domain and cover a few use cases in telecom such as Key Performance Indicator (KPI) degradation and outlier root cause analysis and hardware failures. The speaker will share sample results from simulated experiments. He will introduce a few active research topics in this space.

    Biography: Dr. Sunil Kumar Vuppala is the Director -“ Data Science, Ericsson Global AI Accelerator (GAIA), Bangalore. Dr. Vuppala has 18 years of industrial and research experience in Machine learning, Deep learning, Analytics, Internet of Things, and Automation. Sunil worked in Oracle, Infosys R&D, and Philips Research before joining Ericsson. He is the inventor of 35+ patents (6 US granted and 30+ published), has published 30+ papers, and delivered 100+ guest lectures. Dr. Vuppuala is a senior member of ACM, IEEE, and a fellow of IETE and IEI. He is one of the Top 10 data scientists in India for 2019, recipient of Zinnov Technical Role Model in Emerging Technology award 2020, IEEE TEMS Engineering Manager of the Year 2020, and ACM distinguished speaker. Dr. Vuppula is an alumnus of premier institutes in India. He is a visiting faculty at Case Western Reserve University, USA.

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Marco Panesi, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

    Talk Title: Construction of Hydrodynamic Models for Nonequilibrium Flows: Application to Hypersonics

    Abstract: The simulation of the aerothermal environment surrounding vehicles moving at hypersonic speed is a complex problem due to its multi-physics and multi-scale nature. Progress in accurately modeling these systems has been hindered by the lack of reliable physical models for the thermochemical and transport processes that dominate the dynamics of the flow. The most physically consistent description of nonequilibrium flows relies on the direct numerical solution of the kinetic equations for each internal state of the gas particles. However, for problems of interest, the exponentially large many degrees of freedom, and the wide range of spatial and temporal scales involved, make these equations unsolvable.

    This talk outlines a new paradigm for constructing predictive modeling and simulation tools from a fundamental physics perspective, rejecting the empiricism that has prevented progress in modeling hypersonic flows for decades. Inspired by model reduction strategies developed in statistical physics, this work addresses the challenges of the combinatorial explosion of the possible configurations of the system,obtaining new governing equations by projecting the master equation onto a few lower-dimensional subspaces. The distribution function within each subspace is then reconstructed using the Maximum Entropy Principle, thus ensuring compliance with the Detailed Balance.

    I will cover the critical aspects involved in model development: (1) using direct numerical simulationto study the fundamental physics; (2) derivation of a reduced-order set of equations that give an accurateand physical consistent description of the physics at a much-reduced computational cost: (3) Validationand uncertainty quantification.

    Biography: Dr. Marco Panesi is currently a Professor in the Aerospace Engineering Department and director of the Center for Hypersonics and Entry System Studies (CHESS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In 2009, he received a Ph.D. degree from the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics. He completed a post-doc with the PECOS center, one of the five DOE-funded PSAAP centers, at Odens Institute. Prof. Panesi joined the faculty in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as an assistant professor in August 2012.

    Prof. Panesi has won several awards, including the Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship (VBFF), the Young Investigator Program (YIP) award from AFOSR, and the Early Career Faculty award from NASA. He has won the Best Paper/Presentation Awards at AIAA conferences several times. In 2015, he received the Award on Physical Modelling at the Symposium on Aerothermodynamics for Space Vehicles (ESA) for his contribution to the fundamentals of Aerothermodynamics.
