  • ECE 10th Annual Research Festival

    Fri, Nov 08, 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Alumni

    University Calendar


    2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the Ming Hsieh ECE departments annual research festival. We have done a lot in the last decade: from enabling major research breakthroughs and new interdisciplinary initiatives to welcoming transformative faculty and celebrating numerous awards and honors. At this year's festival, we will be celebrating a decade of accomplishments while looking to the next decade ahead of us. We would love for you to join us at this milestone event.
    The annual research festival is the ECE department's largest and most important event of the year. Over 100 of our PhD students, representing every research area in the discipline, come together to share their original research with peers, faculty, alumni, and industry leaders. It provides our students with invaluable experience presenting their work in front of a diverse audience and an opportunity to open new dialog for advancing research. More importantly, it brings our best student researchers together with academic and industry leaders for the purpose of future R&D collaboration and cooperation. Please join us on November 8th, 2019 to see how far we've come, and how much further we can go.

  • PhD Thesis Proposal - Michael Tsang

    Thu, Nov 14, 2019 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 PM

    Computer Science

    University Calendar



    Title: Interpretable Machine Learning Models via Feature Interaction Discovery
    Date/Time: Thursday, November 14th 10-11:30am
    Location: SAL 322
    Candidate: Michael Tsang
    Committee: Prof. Yan Liu (adviser), Prof. Joseph Lim, Prof. Maja Mataric, Prof. Emily Putnam Hornstein, Prof. Xiang Ren


    The impact of machine learning prediction models has created a growing need for us to understand why they make their predictions. The interpretation of these models is important to reveal their fundamental behavior, to obtain scientific insights into data, and to help us trust automatic predictions. In this thesis proposal, we advance these directions via the problem of feature interaction discovery. We develop a way to interpret the feature interactions in feedforward neural networks by tracing their learned weights. We follow-up on this method and develop a way of learning transparent neural networks. Lastly, we investigate applications of this work on interpreting black-box models beyond feedforward neural networks, such as image/text classifiers and recommender systems. Throughout this presentation, we will explain the physical meaning and practical importance of our feature interaction interpretations.
