  • PhD Thesis Proposal - Umang Gupta

    Mon, Oct 03, 2022 @ 03:00 PM - 04:30 PM

    PhD Candidate: Umang Gupta

    Title: Controlling Information for Fairness and Privacy in Machine Learning

    Committee: Greg Ver Steeg, Paul Thompson, Bistra Dilkina, Kristina Lerman, Fred Morstatter.

    Abstract:
    With the increasing ubiquity of machine learning models in everyday life, a critical issue occurs when these models capture unintended information. This leads to unintended biases and memorization of training data, resulting in unfair outcomes and risking privacy. These phenomena are especially troublesome in applications where data privacy needs to be upheld, such as medical imaging, or where unfairness can lead to disparate outcomes, such as hiring decisions. To this end, we study this underlying problem of capturing unintended information in various domains. Specifically, we discuss ways to ensure fairness in decision-making by learning fair data representations and controlling unfair language generation by correctly modulating information in neural networks. Finally, we demonstrate that releasing neuroimaging models can reveal private information about the individuals participating in the training set and discuss ongoing work on learning with privacy.

  • CS Colloquium: Jonathan Kelly (University of Toronto) - Keeping Your Distances: A Distance-Geometric Perspective on Inverse Kinematics

    Tue, Oct 04, 2022 @ 03:30 PM - 04:50 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jonathan Kelly, University of Toronto

    Talk Title: Keeping Your Distances: A Distance-Geometric Perspective on Inverse Kinematics

    Series: Computer Science Colloquium

    Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss recent work in my group on the problem of inverse kinematics (IK): finding joint angles that achieve a desired robot manipulator end-effector pose. A wide range of IK solvers exist, the majority of which operate on joint angles as parameters. Because the problem is highly nonlinear, these solvers are prone to local minima (among other troubles). I will introduce an alternate formulation of IK based on distance geometry, where a robot model is defined in terms of distances between rigidly-attached points. This alternative geometric description of the kinematics reveals an elegant equivalence between IK and the problem of low-rank Euclidean distance matrix completion. We use this connection to implement two novel solutions to IK for various articulated robots. The first is a Riemannian optimization-based approach which leverages the structure of the EDM manifold. The second solves a series of convex semidefinite relaxations of the distance-geometric problem. Both methods outperform many existing solvers on a variety of IK problems, some of which incorporate collision avoidance and joint limit constraints. Finally, I will describe a learned IK solver we have recently developed that is able to quickly generate sets of diverse approximate IK results for many different manipulators.

    Prof. Kelly will give his talk in person at RTH 115 and we will also host the talk over Zoom.

  • MFD Seminar: Mathematical Design of Energy Materials

    Tue, Oct 04, 2022 @ 04:00 PM - 05:20 PM

    Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Professor Ananya Balakrishna , WiSE Gabilan Assistant Professor and Assistant Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, University of Southern California

    Talk Title: MFD Distinguished Lecture Series: Mathematical Design of Energy Materials

    Abstract: "We live in a world in constant need of better materials for energy conversion and storage. We need to not only discover energy materials with enhanced properties, but we need to do so urgently - that is, there is a need to establish a quantitative design framework to accelerate materials development. Finding design principles to improve material properties is the focus of my research group. In my talk, I will present our research on, first, how microstructural instabilities and fundamental material constants contribute to hysteresis in soft magnets. We have developed a coercivity tool that, for the first time, combines micromagnetics and nonlinear stability analysis to predict hysteresis in magnetic alloys and, thereby, provides crucial insights into the longstanding
    permalloy problem in soft magnets. Second, I will share some of our work on crystallographically designing microstructures to mitigate degradation in intercalation materials. While suppressing chemo-mechanical degradation has been a longstanding problem, our ongoing work initiates a new line of research by drawing inspiration from shape memory alloys to crystallographically design structural transformations. Finally, I will conclude by showing some ongoing work on designing microstructures in photo-induced phase transformation materials. These materials undergo extreme deformations on exposure to light and are an emerging class of phase transformation materials with applications in remote actuation. Throughout, I will emphasize how developing multi-physics and multi-scale mathematical methods (e.g., phase-field methods, phase-field crystal methods) allows my group to answer new questions about how microstructures affect material properties."

    Biography: Ananya Renuka Balakrishna joined the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at USC as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2020. Prior to joining USC, she pursued postdoctoral research as a Lindemann Fellow at MIT (Department of Materials Science), and at the University of Minnesota (Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics). Ananya received her PhD in Solid Mechanics and Materials Engineering from the University of Oxford. Broadly, her research focuses on developing mathematical models to investigate the links between material instabilities, microstructures, and properties in energy-storage and functional materials.

  • PhD Thesis Proposal - Shichen Liu

    Wed, Oct 05, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

    Computer Science

    University Calendar


    PhD Candidate: Shichen Liu

    Title: Fast and Accurate Geometry Inference with Learned Recurrent Optimizers

    Time: Oct. 5th, 2022, 10am - 11am

    Committee: Yajie Zhao, Randall Hill, Stefanos Nikolaidis, Andrew Nealen, Aiichiro Nakano

    Abstract:
    Geometry inference requires accuracy, efficiency, and robustness in various use cases, such as AR/VR, autonomous driving, etc. Compared to traditional methods, deep convolutional neural networks have achieved noticeable improvement on a wide range of geometry inference tasks in terms of robustness. However, these models either produce inaccurate predictions or have a large computation overhead due to specially designed structures, which are hard to be deployed into a real-world system. In this thesis proposal, I introduce a framework that can largely improve the inference speed with high accuracy for geometry inference by taking the vanishing point detection task as a case study.

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Beverly McKeon, Caltech

    Talk Title: What Makes Turbulence Tick?

    Abstract: In this lecture, I will utilize the classical approaches and tools of the modern day -“ theoretical analysis and data-driven methods, respectively -“ together with novel laboratory experiments to illuminate key features of nonlinear interactions in the Navier-Stokes equations. Focusing on a spatio-temporal representation of turbulence near walls -“ an omnipresent phenomenon in large-scale transport and transportation - interscale interactions are identified and quantified, then reduced to key elements responsible for sustaining turbulence. Methods to obtain data-driven representations of both linear and nonlinear dynamics will be discussed, along with some implications for the modeling of wall turbulence. The work has benefited from funding by the US ONR and AFOSR over a period of years, which is gratefully acknowledged.

    Biography: Beverley J. McKeon is the Theodore von Karman Professor of Aeronautics at the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at Caltech (GALCIT) and former Deputy Chair of the Division of Engineering & Applied Science. Effective January 2023, she will be a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. She received her B.A., M.A. and M.Eng. from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University under the supervision of Lex Smits. She completed postdoctoral research and a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship at Imperial College London before arriving at Caltech in 2006. Her research interests include interdisciplinary approaches to manipulation of boundary layer flows using morphing surfaces, fundamental investigations of wall turbulence and the influence of the wall at high Reynolds number, the development of resolvent analysis for modeling turbulent flows, and assimilation of experimental data for efficient low-order flow modeling. Prof. McKeon is a Fellow of the APS and the AIAA and the recipient of a Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship from the DoD in 2017, the Presidential Early Career Award (PECASE) in 2009 and an NSF CAREER Award in 2008 as well as Caltechs Shair Program Diversity Award, Graduate Student Council Excellence in Mentoring Award and Northrop Grumman Prize for Excellence in Teaching. She currently serves as co-Lead Editor of Physical Review Fluids, as Physical Sciences co-captain on the National Academies Decadal Survey on Biological and Physical Sciences Research in Space 2023-32, and on the editorial board of the Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics, and is a past editor-in-chief of Experimental Thermal and Fluid Science.

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Qinyuan Ye, USC/ISI

    Talk Title: Acquiring and Understanding Cross Task Generalization with Diverse NLP Tasks

    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.

    Humans can learn and perform a new language task more efficiently than machines, when they are provided with either task instructions or only a few examples for that task. We believe such learning efficiency is partly achieved by accumulating past learning experiences, i.e., learning to learn with previously seen tasks. We refer to such capability as cross task generalization and envision it to be an integral piece towards generalist NLP systems.

    In this talk, I will present our recent efforts in acquiring and understanding cross task generalization with diverse NLP tasks 1. To build a learning environment for acquiring and evaluating cross-task generalization, we construct NLP Few shot Gym, a repository of 160 few shot tasks collected from open access NLP datasets, converted to a unified text to text format, and covering diverse formats, goals and domains. We further introduce CrossFit, a few shot learning challenge that systematically evaluates an algorithms ability to quickly learn new tasks. With these resources, we conduct an empirical analysis with multi task learning and meta learning approaches, which provides fresh insights. 2. To better understand how models learn transferable skills to achieve cross task generalization, we develop task level mixture of expert models that explicitly emulates the behavior of accumulating skills and recomposing them when encountering a new task. Our empirical results suggest that training task level mixture of experts can alleviate negative transfer and achieve better few shot performance on unseen tasks; further we find that the learned routing decisions and experts partially rediscover human categorization of NLP tasks.






    Biography: Qinyuan Ye is a fourth year CS Ph.D. student at University of Southern California, advised by Prof. Xiang Ren. Her research interests lie in natural language processing. In particular she is interested in approaches that reduce human annotation efforts, including methods leveraging distant supervision, high level human supervision for example explanations, instructions, and metalearning. Prior to USC, she was an undergraduate student at Tsinghua University, majoring in Automation.

  • MHI ISSS Seminar - Dr. Elad Alon, Friday, October 7 at 2pm in EEB 132 and Zoom

    Fri, Oct 07, 2022 @ 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Elad Alon, CEO, Blue Cheetah Analog Design

    Talk Title: Reshaping the A/MS Design Industry with Generators

    Series: Integrated Systems

    Abstract: The semiconductor industry is in the midst of multiple technological, societal, and market trends - including a resurgence of customized silicon solutions, global capacity shortages, and the end of scaling derived reductions in cost per transistor - that are all aligning to drive surging demand for IC
    designs. Accordingly, demand has never been higher for the A/MS components / sub-systems underlying all modern chips, and yet the supply of A/MS design engineers has at best remained flat over the last ~10- 20 years. In this talk I will describe how generator-based design - where we algorithmically codify and
    capture expert engineers' methodologies - allow us to "force multiply" the efforts of expert designers and rapidly realize customized, process-portable A/MS designs.

    Biography: Dr. Elad Alon is the CEO and co-founder of Blue Cheetah Analog Design, which is leveraging generator-based design methodologies to rapidly deliver tailored A/MS designs to meet our customers' diverse needs. He is an Adjunct Professor at UC Berkeley in the EECS Department, where he was a Full Professor until Jul. 2021. He has served as an advisor or consultant to many semiconductor and electronics companies, including Lion Semiconductor (acquired by Cirrus Logic), Ayar Labs, Intel, Xilinx, Cadence, Wilocity (acquired by Qualcomm), and Cadence. He has been recognized with multiple best-paper (from the ISSCC, VLSI, and CICC conferences)
    as well as teaching awards, has led several multi-institutional research programs, and was elevated to the rank of IEEE Fellow in 2020.

  • Machine Learning Center Seminar: Furong Huang (University of Maryland) - Trustworthy Machine Learning in Complex Environments

    Wed, Oct 12, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Furong Huang, University of Maryland

    Talk Title: Trustworthy Machine Learning in Complex Environments

    Series: Machine Learning Seminar Series hosted by USC Machine Learning Center

    Abstract: With the burgeoning use of machine learning models in an assortment of applications, there is a need to rapidly and reliably deploy models in a variety of environments. These trustworthy machine learning models must satisfy certain criteria, namely the ability to: (i) adapt and generalize to previously unseen worlds although trained on data that only represent a subset of the world, (ii) allow for non-iid data, (iii) be resilient to (adversarial) perturbations, and (iv) conform to social norms and make ethical decisions.

    In this talk, towards trustworthy and generally applicable intelligent systems, I will cover some reinforcement learning algorithms that achieve fast adaptation by guaranteed knowledge transfer, principled methods that measure the vulnerability and improve the robustness of reinforcement learning agents, and ethical models that make fair decisions under distribution shifts.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.


    Biography: Furong Huang is an Assistant Professor of the Department of Computer Science at University of Maryland. She works on statistical and trustworthy machine learning, reinforcement learning, graph neural networks, deep learning theory and federated learning with specialization in domain adaptation, algorithmic robustness and fairness. Furong is a recipient of the NSF CRII Award, the MLconf Industry Impact Research Award, the Adobe Faculty Research Award and three JP Morgan Faculty Research Awards. She is a Finalist of AI in Research - AI researcher of the year for Women in AI Awards North America 2022. She received her Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer science from UC Irvine in 2016, after which she completed postdoctoral positions at Microsoft Research NYC.

  • MFD Seminar: Mechanisms for Diffusion Dependent Interfacial Strain: New Insights for Ultrahigh Temperature In Situ TEM

    Tue, Oct 18, 2022 @ 04:00 PM - 05:20 PM

    Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Professor Shen J. Dillon, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, University of California, Irvine

    Talk Title: Mechanisms for Diffusion Dependent Interfacial Strain: New Insights for Ultrahigh Temperature In Situ TEM

    Abstract: Series: MFD Distinguished Lecture Series

    Polycrystals can exhibit high-temperature interface-mediated strain in response to an externally applied stress, such as creep, superplasticity, or hot-press sintering, or internal stress, such as stress relaxation at interfaces during thermal cycling or oxide scale growth, fission bubble growth, and densification during sintering. Such problems have mostly been analyzed and treated in the context of purely diffusional models. The diffusional flux, however, is one of only three necessary steps or conditions required for diffusional dependent interfacial strain, the other two include interfacial dislocation nucleation and the emission and absorption of point defects at the interfacial dislocations. The prevalence of diffusional rate limited models results from somewhat unsubstantiated assumptions within the early literature along with the non-uniqueness of the various rate-limiting kinetic models, i.e., disparate models often fit isothermal kinetic data obtained from polycrystalline experiments equally well.

    Our group developed a laser heating-based approach for ultrahigh temperature in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) during small-scale mechanical testing. This approach enables a more direct characterization of interfacial strain kinetics and thermodynamics at individual grain boundaries, which provides an improved basis for evaluating the high-temperature deformation mechanisms. This talk will present experiments that reveal grain boundary dislocation nucleation limits interfacial strain kinetics in many systems up to relatively large stresses. Based on the experimental observations, new models for sintering and grain boundary creep are developed to account for the appropriate mechanism. These are demonstrated to fit experimental data well, predict broad trends in the literature, and provide explanations for several poorly understood phenomena within the sintering and creep literature. The talk will conclude by discussing the broader implications of the new scientific understanding.

    Biography: Shen J. Dillon is a Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of California Irvine. He received his B.S. and then Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Lehigh University in 2007. He began as an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2009 and joined the faculty at UC Irvine in 2021. His scientific interests relate to understanding the key role played by inorganic interfacial structure-property relationships in affecting the performance of systems in extreme environments. Much of his recent work relates to developing and applying novel in situ characterization techniques that can be applied to understanding the dynamic properties of materials and their interfaces. He is the author of over 100 articles and was a recipient of the 2011 Department of Energy Early Career Award, the 2013 National Science Foundation CAREER Award, and the 2015 American Ceramic Society's Robert L. Coble Award for Young Scholars.

    Talk Title: Interplay Between Structure, Charge, and Spin in Entropy-Stabilized Oxides for Widely Tunable Responses

    Abstract: Entropy-stabilized (ESOs) and high entropy oxides (HEOs) demonstrate a new and unprecedented degree of chemical control in materials. The technique can be used to incorporate cationic species in an atypical coordination, such as Cu2+ and Zn2+ into octahedral coordination and increase the solubility of elements. This broadens the compositional space of crystalline oxides and presents opportunities to understand and explore the local chemical and structural disorder resulting from different atomic sizes and the preferred coordination of the constituents. Particularly in oxides, where the physical behavior is strongly correlated to stereochemistry and electronic structure, entropic stabilization creates a unique platform to tailor the interplay between structural and chemical disorder to realize unprecedented functionalities. Here, I will discuss the control of stereochemically-driven structural disorder in single crystalline, rocksalt, (MgCoNiCuZn)O-type entropy-stabilized oxides through the incorporation of Co and Cu cations. We harness the disorder to tune the degree of glassiness in the antiferromagnetic magnetic structure and an anomalous (non-Vegard's) behavior in the evolution of the lattice parameter with cation valence. We have also observed a tunable conductivity that is mediated by hopping and correlated to the global disorder and defect density. Our findings demonstrate novel interplay between local and global structure, charge, and spin states in entropy-stabilized oxides and provide a pathway for tunable magnetic and electronic responses for spintronics and non-filamentary based memristors.

    Biography: The Heron group investigates the interplay between charge, lattice, and spin via multiscale characterization and the macroscopic ferroic properties of materials. Heron is best known for his work on the pulsed laser deposition thin film high entropy and multiferroic oxides as well as proof of concept devices employing these materials. The applications focus is on materials for enhanced performance in computing. His work is supported by the NSF, DARPA, and the Semiconductor Research Corporation.

    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).
