    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Benjamin Sapp, Waymo, LLC

    Talk Title: Behavioral Models for Interactive Motion Forecasting and Planning for Real-Word Autonomous Vehicles

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

    Abstract: Understanding the complex behavior of other cars, pedestrians and cyclists is essential for autonomous vehicle planning in the real world. In this talk, we'll first go over some of our recent advancements in scalable transformer architectures for behavior modeling. Next, we'll discuss joint behavior prediction and planning architectures, as well as how to factorize the joint output space of all possible futures in effective ways. Lastly, we discuss the interplay of our models deployed in the real-world with simulated agents and simulators and describe systems for closed loop simulation of agents and AVs.

  • NL Seminar- Scaling unlocks emergent abilities in language models

    Thu, Feb 02, 2023 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jason Wei, Google Brain

    Talk Title: Scaling unlocks emergent abilities in language models

    Abstract: REMINDER

    Meeting hosts only admit guests that they know to the Zoom meeting. Hence, you are highly encouraged to use your USC account to sign into Zoom.

    If you are an outside visitor, please inform us at nlg DASH seminar DASH host AT isi DOT edu beforehand so we will be aware of your attendance and let you in.

    In person attendance will be permitted for USC ISI faculty, staff, students only. Open to the public virtually via the zoom link and online.
    Scaling up language models has been shown to predictably improve performance on a wide range of downstream tasks. In this talk, we will instead discuss an unpredictable phenomenon that we refer to as emergent abilities of large language models. An ability is considered emergent if it is not present in smaller models but is present in larger models, which means that the ability cannot be predicted simply by extrapolating the performance of smaller models. With the popularization of large language models such as GPT-3, Chinchilla, and PaLM, dozens of emergent abilities have been discovered, including chain-of-thought prompting, which enables state-of-the-art mathematical reasoning, and instruction finetuning, which enables large language models to be usable by the broader population. The existence of such emergent phenomena raises the question of whether additional scaling could potentially further expand the range of capabilities of language models.

    Biography: Jason Wei is a senior research scientist at Google Brain. His research focuses on large language models, and his research includes chain-of-thought prompting, instruction finetuning, and emergent abilities of language models. His work has been featured in more than five Google AI blog posts, and chain-of-thought prompting was presented last year at Google I/O 2022 by Google CEO Sundar Picchai. Before Google, Jason received his AB from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.

  • CS Colloquium: Nicole Immorlica (Microsoft Research New England) - Data, the Fundamental Particle of Interaction

    Mon, Feb 13, 2023 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Nicole Immorlica, Microsoft Research New England

    Talk Title: Data, the Fundamental Particle of Interaction

    Series: CS Colloquium

    Abstract: Most economic models of interaction assume that agents hold beliefs in the form of priors, or probability distributions over a state of the world, which guide their behavior. In this talk, I consider a model in which beliefs are built off data or anecdotes that are drawn from a distribution parameterized by the state of the world and study how this impacts outcomes. I first discuss a model where agents communicate by sharing anecdotes. This mode of communication results in higher noise and bias when agents have differing preferences, giving rise to informational homophily and polarization. The results have implications for content regulation in social networks. Next, I discuss a model where a principal selectively discloses anecdotes to facilitate social learning. Here I will show that an appropriate information structure, chosen ex ante, can incentivize exploration and thus avoid the herding problems common in such social learning settings. The results have implications for the selection of reviews in online recommendation systems.

    Based on joint work with Nika Haghtalab, Brendan Lucier, Jieming Mao, Markus Mobius, Divya Mohan, Alex Slivkins, and Steven Wu.


    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium

    Biography: Nicole Immorlica is a senior principal researcher at Microsoft Research New England (MSR NE) where she leads the economics and computation group. She is also chair of SIGecom, the ACM Special Interest Group on Economics and Computation, which fosters world-class research in this interdisciplinary field through conferences, awards, and mentorship programs. She received her BS in 2000, MEng in 2001 and PhD in 2005 in theoretical computer science from MIT in Cambridge, MA. She joined MSR NE in 2012 after completing postdocs at Microsoft in Redmond, WA and Centruum vor Wiskunde en Informatics (CWI) in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and a professorship in computer science at Northwestern University. Nicole's research interest is in the design and operation of sociotechnical systems. Using tools and modeling concepts from both theoretical computer science and economics, Nicole hopes to explain, predict, and shape behavioral patterns in various online and offline systems, markets, and games. She is known for her work on social networks, matching markets, and mechanism design. She is the recipient of a number of fellowships and awards including the Sloan Fellowship, the Microsoft Faculty Fellowship and the NSF CAREER Award. She has been on several boards including SIGACT, the Game Theory Society, and INFORMS Auction and Market Design Section; is an associate editor of Operations Research and Games and Economic Behavior, and was program committee member and chair for several ACM, IEEE and INFORMS conferences in her area.

    Meeting ID: 973 8753 9087
    Passcode: 312501

    Abstract:
    Historical maps provide rich information for researchers in many areas, including the natural and social sciences. These maps include detailed documentation of a wide variety of natural and human-made features, their spatial extent, their changes over time, their geo-names, and additional metadata. Analyzing map collections that cover the same region at different points in time can be labor-intensive even for a scientist, often requiring further grounding and linking with external sources to contextualize the data. With rapidly increasing amounts of digitized map archives, we require methods to convert these maps into a machine-processable and machine-readable semantic form and do so automatically, efficiently, and at scale. Unfortunately, existing techniques are limited and do not leverage the vast landscape of information extracted from archives of historical maps.
    In this thesis proposal, we investigate how to convert the extracted geo-data and metadata to a dynamic knowledge graph representation that captures the data semantics, how the data can be interrelated across entire datasets, and how it can be grounded to real-world phenomena by leveraging external resources on the web. We explore approaches that benefit from the open and connective nature of linked data that can produce a spatio-temporal, semantic, and contextualized output that follows linked data principles, and that can be easily extended with further availability of contemporary maps while supporting backward compatible access. Once materialized in a dynamic knowledge graph, the output can hold the data in a semantic network, making it readily shared, accessible, visualized, standardized across domains, and scalable for effortless use by downstream tasks for analysis and expressive integration over time and space.
