  • Emergent Hierarchies and Social Stability

    Wed, Sep 05, 2018 @ 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Márton Pósfai , Complexity Sciences Center and Department of Computer Science, University of California, Davis

    Talk Title: Emergent Hierarchies and Social Stability

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

    Abstract: Hierarchy of social organization is a ubiquitous property of animal and human groups, linked to resource allocation, collective decisions, individual health, and even to social instability. In my talk, I will discuss aspects of modelling the dynamics of hierarchy formation. I will first focus on the role of talent versus social feedback in obtaining rank. Experimental evidence shows that both impact hierarchies; existing mathematical models, however, focus on the latter. I will introduce a rigorous model that incorporates both features and show effects that arise from the interaction of the two. In the second half of my talk, I will discuss our collaboration with the California National Primate Research Center, this joint work aims to model the social structure and stability of rhesus macaque groups. Rhesus macaques live in cohesive hierarchically-structured groups of approximately one hundred individuals. Their social organization is regulated by a multiplex network defined by kinship and a number of interactions including grooming, fighting and formal submission. A notable property of macaque societies is that they can become unstable: the hierarchical organization may collapse, culminating in large-scale fighting, dissolution of social order and disbanding of entire groups. I will briefly describe the structure of their social networks and how modelling their dynamics help us understand social collapse.

    Biography: Márton Pósfai received his PhD in statistical physics at the Eötvös University, Budapest. During his PhD he spent two years at the Northeastern University, Boston in the lab of Prof. Albert-László Barabási and six months at TU Berlin as German Academic Exchange Service scholarship-holder. Currently, he is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Davis working together with Prof. Raissa D'Souza. He is interested in complex systems and network science, with focus on network control, phase transitions in complex networks, emergence in social systems, and social organization of non-human primates.

    Speaker: Jiun-Yu (Joanne) Kao, University of Southern California

    Talk Title: Human Activity Analysis with Graph Signal Processing Techniques

    Abstract: Analyzing and understanding human actions has long been a popular yet challenging research area with a broad range of applications. In this thesis, we explore model-based approaches to construct representations for captured skeleton-based motion data with prior knowledge about human skeletons being considered. The main challenge in achieving so is the irregularity in the skeletal structure and its corresponding actions, which we propose to leverage graph structures to tackle with, since graph has shown its superiority in modeling complex relationships among entities in irregular domains. In this
    work, we propose graph-based motion representations which start with constructing a skeletal or skeletal-temporal graph, followed by applying a graph transform such as Graph Fourier Transform (GFT) or Spectral Graph Wavelet Transform (SGWT) to the graph signals, i.e., motion data, defined on the graph. We discuss the construction of a skeletal graph and further derive the spatial and spectral properties associated with this type of graphs, as well as the interpretations brought by GFT basis. Additionally, we discuss several desirable properties of the proposed representations, including
    computational efficiency and easier generalization. As an extension, we explore the possibility of learning a set of action dependent graphs for classification purpose, where we propose a general discriminative graph learning problem together with an iterative algorithm to solve it. Furthermore, a closed-form solution can be derived when graph topology satisfies certain properties.

    As for applications, we consider two real-world scenarios where skeleton-based motion data is captured for automated action analysis. The first one is a mobility assessment system where activities performed by patients with musculoskeletal disorders are captured and utilized to predict their current medication states. The other one is skeleton-based action recognition, which has been a popular research problem in computer vision. Employing our proposed representations can achieve recognition performance comparable to the state of the art, while at the same time provides
    benefits in significantly lower time complexity, robustness to noisy and missing data, and easiness to re-apply to new datasets. Theoretical interpretations and comprehensive experimental results are presented for the proposed methods.

    Biography: Jiun-Yu (Joanne) Kao is a PhD candidate in Department of Electrical Engineering at University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, CA. She received her B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan in 2012. Her research focuses on human activity analysis and video understanding, with particular interests in graph based approaches.

    Title: Balancing Security and Performance of Network Request-Response Protocols

    Time: 1:00 PM on Thursday, September 6th, 2018
    Location: SAL 322

    Ph.D. Candidate: Liang Zhu

    Committee:
    Prof. John Heidemann
    Prof. Ramesh Govindan
    Prof. Bhaskar Krishnamachari

    Abstract:
    The Internet has become a popular tool to acquire information and knowledge. Usually information retrieval on the Internet depends on request-response protocols, where clients and servers exchange data.
    Despite of their wide use, request-response protocols bring challenges for security and privacy. For example, source-address spoofing enables denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, and eavesdropping of unencrypted data leaks sensitive information in request-response protocols. There is often a trade-off between security and performance in request-response protocols. More advanced protocols, such as Transport Layer Security (TLS), are proposed to solve these problems of source spoofing and eavesdropping. However, developers often avoid adopting those advanced protocols, due to performance costs such as client latency and server memory requirement. We need to understand the trade-off between security and performance for request-response protocols and find a reasonable balance, instead of blindly prioritizing one of them.

    This thesis of this dissertation states that it is possible to improve security of network request-response protocols without compromising performance, by protocol and deployment optimizations that are demonstrated through measurements of protocol developments and deployments. We support the thesis statement through three specific studies, each of which uses measurements and experiments to evaluate the development and optimization of a request-response protocol. We show that security benefits can be achieved with modest performance costs. In the first study, we measure the latency of OCSP in TLS connections. We show that OCSP has low latency due to its wide use of CDN and caching, while identifying certificate revocation to secure TLS. In the second study, we propose to use TCP and TLS for DNS to solve a range of fundamental problems in DNS security and privacy. We show that DNS over TCP and TLS can achieve favorable performance with selective optimization. In the third study, we build a configurable, general-purpose DNS trace replay system that emulates global DNS hierarchy in a testbed and enables DNS experiments at scale efficiently. We use this system to further prove the reasonable performance of DNS over TCP and TLS at scale in the real world.

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Vivek Srikumar , The University of Utah

    Talk Title: Natural Language Processing in the Wild Opportunities and Challenges

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: Natural language processing NLP sees potential applicability in a broad array of user facing applications. To realize this potential, however, we need to address several challenges related to representations, data availability and scalability. In this talk, I will discuss these concerns and how we may overcome them. First, as a motivating example of NLP's broad reach, I will present our recent work on using language technology to improve mental health treatment. Then, I will focus on some of the challenges that need to be addressed, with a specific focus on scalability. The motivating question is How can we systematically speed up the entire NLP pipeline without sacrificing accuracy? As two concrete answers to this question, I will describe our recent results that show techniques for rethinking feature extraction and inference to make trained classifiers significantly faster.


    Biography: Vivek Srikumar is an assistant professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in 2013 and was a post-doctoral scholar at Stanford University. His research lies in the areas of natural learning processing and machine learning and has primarily been driven by questions arising from the need to learn structured representations of text using little or indirect supervision and to scale NLP to large problems. His work has been published in various AI, NLP and machine learning venues and received the best paper award at EMNLP 2014. His work has been supported by grants and awards from NSF, BSF, Google and Intel.

    Speaker: Meisam Razaviyayn, University of Southern California

    Talk Title: Finding a Local Optimum of a Constrained Non-Convex Optimization and its Connections to Global Optimality

    Abstract: When is solving a non-convex optimization problem easy? Despite significant research efforts to answer this question, most existing results are problem specific and cannot be applied even with simple changes in the objective function. In this talk, we provide theoretical insights to this question by answering two related questions: 1) Are all local optima of a given optimization problem globally optimal? 2) When can we compute a local optimum of a given non-convex constrained optimization problem efficiently? In the first part of the talk, motivated by the non-convex training problem of deep neural networks, we provide simple sufficient conditions under which any local optimum of a given highly composite optimization problem is globally optimal. Unlike many existing results in the literature, our sufficient condition applies to many non-convex optimization problems such as training problem of non-convex multi-linear neural networks and non-linear neural networks with pyramidal structures.

    In the second part of the talk, we consider the problem of finding a local optimum of a constrained non-convex optimization problem under strict saddle point property. We show that, unlike the unconstrained scenario, the vanilla projected gradient descent algorithm fails to escape saddle points even in the presence of a single linear constraint. We then propose a trust region algorithm which converges to second order stationary points for optimization problems with small number of linear constraints. Our algorithm is the first optimization procedure, with polynomial per-iteration complexity, which converges to $\epsilon$-first order stationary points of a non-manifold constrained optimization problem in $O(\epsilon^{-3/2})$ iterations, and at the same time can escape saddle points under strict saddle property.

    This is a joint work with Maher Nouiehed.

    Biography: Meisam Razaviyayn is an assistant professor at the department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Southern California. Prior to joining USC, he was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University working with Professor David Tse. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering with minor in Computer Science at the University of Minnesota under the supervision of Professor Tom Luo. He obtained his MS degree in Mathematics under the supervision of Professor Gennady Lyubeznik. Meisam Razaviyayn is the recipient of the Signal Processing Society Young Author Best Paper Award in 2014 and the finalist for Best Paper Prize for Young Researcher in Continuous Optimization in 2013 and 2016.

  • INCOSE, LA Chapter Speaker Meeting

    Tue, Sep 11, 2018 @ 06:30 PM - 07:30 PM

    Systems Architecting and Engineering, USC Viterbi School of Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: William Good, Vice President, The Cameron Group

    Talk Title: Lessons from 9/11 in the Context of the INCOSE CSEP (SEBOK) and PMI PMP Exams (PMBOK)

    Series: INCOSE-LA Speaker Series

    Abstract: On the 17th anniversary of 9/11, it is prudent to review the contributions that systems engineering and project management should be making towards the prevention of unconventional terrorist attacks using any of the many weapons of mass destruction (WMD) that could be deployed against America and/or other industrialized nations. We know that systems engineering and project management are extremely useful in the world of conventional weapons and funded government programs. What about unconventional methods like those used on 9/11? This presentation will review the application of systems engineering and project management principles to mitigate the risk of unconventional terrorist WMD attacks.

    Biography: William Good began his career as a pilot serving with the United States Marine Corps in Vietnam. After one combat tour followed by flight instructor and project officer duties, he left the Marine Corps to work as a systems engineer in the development program (aka SED) at EDS. While working on the Comprehensive Brokerage System (CBS) programming back office software for Wall Street, he completed an MBA in operations research at NYU. His subsequent career that covers many skill sets and industries included flying commercially for several airlines and surviving seven airline employer bankruptcies. His career illustrates the art of planning ahead and putting risk mitigation in place to manage the unexpected. In 2015, he left his position as an asset manager in warfighter support, integration, and training at the Missile Defense Integration and Operations Center (MDIOC) at Schriever AFB in Colorado Springs. Since then he has worked with The Cameron Group as a program manager and was promoted to the position of Senior Vice President more than a year ago. In this capacity, he is shepherding the Vehicle-Based Threat Detection System (VBTDS) through the process of full development and deployment across multiple non-government vehicle types within the private sector.

    One unique aspect of his educational background is that he taken more than 400 semester hours of coursework for credit and he has taught more than 400 semester hours of both undergraduate and graduate coursework. He earned 13 certifications from the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) while working for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA).

  • CAIS Seminar: Bryan Wilder (USC) - Algorithmic Social Intervention

    Wed, Sep 12, 2018 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Bryan Wilder, USC

    Talk Title: Algorithmic Social Interventions

    Series: USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series

    Abstract: Social and behavioral interventions are a critical tool for governments and communities to tackle deep-rooted societal challenges such as homelessness, disease, and poverty. However, real-world interventions are almost always plagued by limited resources and limited data, which creates a computational challenge: how can we use algorithmic techniques to enhance the targeting and delivery of social and behavioral interventions? This talk focuses on problems in combinatorial optimization and machine learning which underlie this question. I will discuss robust optimization, information gathering, and decision-driven learning as tools for decision making under uncertainty, as well as applications of these ideas in public health settings such as HIV prevention among homeless youth.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium


    Biography: Bryan Wilder is a PhD student in computer science at the University of Southern California, where he is advised by Milind Tambe. His research focuses on combinatorial optimization and machine learning, driven by applications to social issues such as public health. He is supported by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, and his work has been recognized with best paper and best student paper nominations at AAMAS.

    Fri, Sep 14, 2018 @ 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Daniel Fried, UC Berkeley

    Talk Title: Pragmatic Models for Generating and Following Grounded Instructions

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: To generate language, we model what to say, why not also model how listeners will react? We show how pragmatic inference can be used to both generate and interpret natural language instructions for complex, sequential tasks. Our pragmaticsenabled models reason about how listeners will react upon hearing instructions, and reason counterfactually about why speakers produced the instructions they did. We find that this inference procedure improves state of the art listener models at correctly interpreting human instructions and speaker models at generating instructions correctly interpreted by humans in diverse settings, including navigating through real-world indoor environments.



    Biography: Daniel Fried is a PhD student at UC Berkeley, working with Dan Klein on grounded semantics and structured prediction in natural language processing. Previously, he received a BS from the University of Arizona and an MPhil from the University of Cambridge. His work has been supported by a Churchill Scholarship, NDSEG Fellowship, Huawei / Berkeley AI Fellowship, and Tencent Fellowship.

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Soon-Jo Chung, California Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: Multi-agent cooperative control and estimation for flying cars and spacecraft swarms

    Abstract: Recent advances in self-driving car and drone technologies are turning a century-old dream of vertical-take-off-landing personal transportation vehicles into a reality with many existing projects in development. Caltech's Center for Autonomous Systems and Technologies (CAST)'s engineers and scientists have developed a 1/5 working scale model of their Autonomously Flying Ambulance (AFA) with innovative design ideas, including flight by a hybrid of distributed fans and deployable wings, bio-inspired flight and control, and vision-based navigation. The model has been flight-tested successfully in CAST's unique drone arena using an open-air distributed fan-array wind tunnel. CAST's AFA rotorcraft and autonomy technologies can provide solutions for a range of short-distance travel challenges: point-to-point delivery of packages on Earth or scientific samples on Mars. I will review some of the control theoretical results derived for control and coordination of novel aerial robotic platforms. First, I will present distributed, motion planning and multi-point routing algorithms for optimally reconfiguring swarms of vehicles with limited communication and computation capabilities from various pick-up locations to target locations. The real-time guidance algorithm solves both the optimal assignment and collision-free trajectory generation in an integrated manner. Three related approaches have been derived for optimal assignment problem for real-time routing: (1) distributed auction assignment, (2) novel probabilistic swarm guidance that employs time-inhomogeneous Markov chains; and (3) potential games solved by binary log-linear learning. Second, nonlinear tracking control and estimation is utilized to track optimal reconfiguration trajectories with a property of robustness (finite-gain Lp incremental stability). I will also show such nonlinear incremental stability analysis can be extended to a set of Ito stochastic nonlinear systems for synchronization control and nonlinear estimation, including exponential stability of a distributed Bayesian filtering algorithm, robust nonlinear estimation for visual SLAM, and consensus stability of distributed reinforcement learning for flying ambulances or taxis.

    Biography: Prof. Soon-Jo Chung received the S.M. degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics and the Sc.D. degree in Estimation and Control with a minor in Optics from MIT in 2002 and 2007, respectively. He received the B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering from KAIST in 1998 (school class rank 1 out of 120). He is currently Associate Professor of Aerospace and Bren Scholar in the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories of the California Institute of Technology (GALCIT). Prof. Chung is also a Research Scientist of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. For August 2009-August 2016, Prof. Chung was on the faculty of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research areas include nonlinear control and estimation theory and optimal/robust flight controls with application to aerial robotics, distributed spacecraft systems, and computer vision-based navigation. He is the recipient of the UIUC Engineering Dean's Award for Excellence in Research, the Beckman Faculty Fellowship of the U of Illinois Center for Advanced Study, the AFOSR Young Investigator Award, the NSF CAREER Award, and three best conference paper awards (2015 AIAA GNC, 2009 AIAA Infotech, 2008 IEEE EIT). Prof. Chung is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Robotics and the AIAA Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics.

  • Multi-Mode Systems: LEGO-style Development for Cyber-Physical Systems

    Wed, Sep 19, 2018 @ 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Ashutosh Trivedi, University of Colorado Boulder

    Talk Title: Multi-Mode Systems : LEGO-style Development for Cyber-Physical Systems

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

    Abstract: The recent "internet-of-things" (IoT) revolution has led to a profusion of miniaturized and cost-effective components such as microprocessors, wireless communication devices, sensors, and actuators. This has enabled the "LEGO style" design of complex cyber- physical systems. These systems integrate rich continuous dynamics, discrete switching, stochastic behaviors, and the presence of multiple rational agents. Thus the twin problems of reliable and secure design becomes extremely challenging. This necessitates a disciplined approach that guarantees correctness by construction.

    In this talk, we will present multi-mode systems a mathematical formalism that captures fundamentals of building complex behaviors from simpler predefined primitives. Multi-mode systems naturally capture discrete switching, continuous dynamics, worst-case, and stochastic disturbances in a simple mathematical framework. We present fundamental results on computation and control of such systems with relevance to diverse areas such as robotic path planning, hierarchical and discrete-event control, and game theory.


    Biography: Ashutosh Trivedi is an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Colorado Boulder. He holds a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Warwick. Prior to joining the University of Colorado Boulder, Ashutosh worked as an assistant professor of computer science at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, and as postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Oxford. Ashutosh's research interests lies at the intersection of computer science and control theory. His research focuses on applying rigorous mathematical reasoning techniques for the design and analysis of safe and secure cyber -physical systems.

  • CAIS Seminar: Dr. Turgay Ayer (Georgia Tech) - An Analytics Approach to Prioritizing Access to Hepatitis C Treatment in U.S. Prisons

    Wed, Sep 19, 2018 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Turgay Ayer, Georgia Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: An Analytics Approach to Prioritizing Access to Hepatitis C Treatment in U.S. Prisons

    Series: USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series

    Abstract: HCV prevalence in prison systems is ten times higher than the general population, and hence prison systems offer a unique opportunity to control the HCV epidemic. New HCV treatment drugs are very effective, but providing treatment to all inmates is prohibitively expensive, which precludes universal HCV treatment in prison systems. As such, current practice recommends prioritizing treatment based on clinical and incarceration-related factors, including disease staging, remaining sentence length, and injection drug use (IDU) status. However, there is controversy about how these factors should be incorporated because of the complicated tradeoffs. In this study, we propose an analytics approach to support hepatitis C treatment prioritization decisions in U.S. prisons.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium


    Biography: Turgay Ayer is the George Family Foundation Early Career professor and an associate professor at Industrial and Systems Engineering, and is the research director for healthcare analytics and business intelligence in the Center for Health & Humanitarian Systems at Georgia Tech. In addition, Dr. Ayer holds a courtesy appointment at Emory Medical School.

    His research focuses on healthcare analytics, with applications in predictive and prescriptive health, health policy analysis, and medical decision making. His research papers have been published in top tier management, engineering and medical journals, and covered by popular media outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, US News, and NPR.

    Dr. Ayer has received over $2 million grant funding and several awards for his work, including an NSF CAREER Award (2015), Society for Medical Decision Making (SMDM) Lee Lusted Award (2009), first place in the MSOM Best Practice-Based Research Competition (2017), and a finalist in the 2017 INFORMS Franz Edelman Competition (2017).

    Dr. Ayer serves as associate editor for Operations Research, and is a past president of the INFORMS Health Application Society. He received a B.S. in industrial engineering from Sabanci University in Istanbul, Turkey, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in industrial and Systems Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

    Speaker: Zhiyun Qian, University of California Riverside

    Talk Title: Network Side Channel Attacks: An Oversight Yesterday, A Lingering Threat Today

    Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss the history of attacks against one of the most widely used protocol --- TCP. As side channels were never really considered a threat when network protocols are designed, they suffer almost an endless stream of problems. I will demonstrate a blind off-path attacker can use side channels to hijack a remote TCP connection. Recently, we show two serious attacks: (1) a completely blind off-path attacker (not MITM) can hijack a TCP connection between any two arbitrary hosts (i.e., inferring the existence of connection, and sequence numbers). (2) a variation of the attack which exploits a fundamental design of Wi-Fi which is unfortunately impossible to patch in the short term. I will also give insights on how to systematically discover such problems

    Biography: Dr. Zhiyun Qian is an associate professor at University of California, Riverside. His research interest is on system and network security, including vulnerability discovery, system building, applied program analysis, Internet security (e.g., TCP/IP), Android security, side channels. He has published more than a dozen papers at the top security conferences including IEEE Security & Privacy, ACM CCS, USENIX Security, and NDSS. His projects have resulted in real-world impact with security patches applied in Linux kernel, Android, macOS, and firewall products. His work on TCP side channel attacks won the most creative idea award at GeekPwn 2016 and winner award at GeekPwn 2017. His research is supported by 8 NSF grants (including the NSF CAREER Award) and two industrial gifts.

    Mon, Sep 24, 2018 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: James Anderson, California Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: Private Models and Distributed Control of Networked Systems

    Abstract: Designing controllers to make networked systems autonomous is perhaps the most dominant problem in systems engineering. Distributed control, which is already a challenging task, is only part of the problem. In this talk, I will present recently developed theory and algorithms for synthesizing optimal distributed controllers via convex programming. The theory uses the notion of locality in a manner that ensures the synthesis complexity grows gracefully with the number of states in the network model. Recent robust extensions will also be presented. The remainder of the talk will focus on privacy and how it interacts with this notion of locality. In particular, we are concerned with how to build models from data that, for example, may contain sensitive information. We present a framework based on aggregation and differential privacy that will encourage information owners to contribute their data while ensuring certain privacy guarantees. It will be shown how the topology of the network and the sensitivity of a specific linear program influence the achievable privacy levels.

    Biography: James Anderson is a Senior Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at the California Institute of Technology. He obtained a DPhil (PhD) in Engineering Science from the University of Oxford, UK and the BSc and MSc degrees in Systems Engineering from the University of Reading UK. Prior to Caltech, he held a Junior Research Fellowship in Engineering Science at the University of Oxford and St John's College where he was based in the Control Group. His research interests include distributed control, convex optimization, and privacy preserving computation with applications in autonomy and cyber-physical systems - specifically power grids.

  • Intelligent Intersections Reduce Crashes and Will Support the Safe Introduction of Autonomous Vehicles

    Wed, Sep 26, 2018 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Pravin Varaiya , University of California Berkeley

    Talk Title: Intelligent Intersections Reduce Crashes and Will Support the Safe Introduction of Autonomous Vehicles

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

    Abstract: Intersections are dangerous. Approximately 40% of all crashes, 50% of serious collisions, and 20% of fatalities occur in intersections. Intersections are challenging due to complex interactions among pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles; absence of lane markings; difficulty in determining who has the right of way; blind spots; and illegal movements (e.g., vehicles running red lights). Many cities in California have developed Vision Zero plans, seeking to eliminate traffic injuries and deaths through physical modifications to the road infrastructure, such as adding bike lanes and refuge islands for pedestrians. However, these modifications can be expensive (e.g., a protected intersection can cost between $250,000 to more than a $1 million dollars) and have mixed safety results.
    Autonomous vehicle (AV) manufacturers claim they will prevent 94% of all crashes involving human error. However, the safety performance of AVs today is far below that of human-driven cars. The number of accidents and disengagements per AV mile traveled is 13 to 100 times worse than that of human drivers. The AV fatality rate is equally as bad. AVs find intersections especially challenging; 58 of 66 (88%) AV crashes reported to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) during 10/2014-4/2018 occurred in intersections.

    Crashes in intersections occur because vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists are missing critical information. Intelligent intersections can provide this information at a relatively low cost of $25,000 and $100,000 per intersection. Intelligent intersections report the traffic signal from all approaches; predict when the signal phase will change; relay information on blind spots; and predict red light violations before they occur. This information is broadcast via radio received by everyone in the intersection with a smartphone or Bluetooth device.


    Biography: Pravin Varaiya is a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley. His current research is devoted to transportation networks and electric energy systems. Varaiya has received the Field Medal of the IEEE Control Systems Society, and the Outstanding Researcher Award of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society. He is a Fellow of IEEE, a Fellow of IFAC, a member of the National Academy of Engineering, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

    Fri, Sep 28, 2018 @ 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Ali Hajimiri, California Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: Title: 1, 2, 3, infinity: The Power of Groups

    Abstract: Many of today's technological marvels have emerged from putting apparently unrelated ideas together and creating something more than the sum of the parts. There is a tremendous still-to-be-realized potential in a large number of units operating as a collective, be it in a human society or on a silicon chip. Silicon integrated chips have come a long way from the days of first transistors. Nowadays, we can design using practically unlimited number of components, which leads to a plethora of new opportunities of applications and system, previously unimaginable. In this talk, we will discuss a holistic design approach to electronic and photonic integrated circuits leading to further proliferation of such technologies into our daily lives. We will discuss some of its exciting results, including low-cost tera-hertz imagers, optical gyroscopes, nanophotonic coherent cameras capable of forming 3D images, optical phased arrays, and space-based solar power transfer to name a few.

    Biography: Professor Hajimiri's group does research on electronics and photonics integrated circuits and their applications in various disciplines, including high-frequency and high-speed communications, sensing, imaging, and bio-sensing. His research group engages in both the theoretical analysis
    of the problems in integrated circuits as well as practical implementations of new systems.
    Prof. Ali Hajimiri received his B.S. degree in Electronics Engineering from the Sharif University of Technology, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Stanford University.
    Before joining the Faculty of Caltech, he worked at Philips Semiconductors, where he worked on a BiCMOS chipset for GSM and cellular units, at Sun Microsystems working on the UltraSPARC microprocessor's cache RAM design methodology, and with Lucent Technologies (Bell Labs), Murray Hill, NJ, where he investigated low-phase-noise integrated oscillators.
    In 1998, he joined the Faculty of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, where he is Bren Professor of Electrical Engineering and Medical Engineering, Director of Caltech Holistic Integrated Circuit Laboratory, and co-Director of the Space-based Solar Power Project. His research interests are high-speed and high-frequency electronics and photonics integrated circuits for applications in sensors, biomedical devices, photonics, and communication systems.
