    University Calendar


    Ph.D. Defense - Eli Pincus 10/05 2:00 pm "An Investigation of Fully Interactive Multi-Role Dialogue Agents"

    Ph.D. Candidate: Eli Pincus
    Date: Monday, October 5, 2020
    Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Committee: David Traum (chair), Maja Mataric, Peter Kim
    Title: An Investigation of Fully Interactive Multi-Role Dialogue Agents

    Abstract:
    In the course of their lives human perform multiple roles such as work and social roles. However, current research in human-computer dialogue has focused on dialogue agents that perform only one role of an interaction. For example, Apple's Siri acts mainly as an assistant. In this thesis we helps fill the gap in multi-role dialogue agent research.

    We describe an architecture that endows a test-bed agent with core dialogue management capabilities for both roles of a word-guessing game but can be adapted for different embodiments including virtual human, robot, and a non-embodied web-platform that enables use of the test-bed agent in "in the wild" experiments. We incrementally evaluate design decisions for the test-bed agent that decrease the chance that our later experiments, that more directly evaluate the agent's multi-role capabilities, failed to find effects due to confounds stemming from poor design decisions. We establish that multi-role agents, when compared to single-role versions of the same agent, are able to elicit enjoyment from users without negatively impacting user's perceptions. We also use an "in the wild" experiment to prove that a multi-role content sourcing strategy can be superior to other scalable content sourcing strategies.

    Please join the USC Spatial Sciences Institute Brown Bag talk with Dr. Howard Hu, who joined the Department of Preventive Medicine, Keck School of Medicine of USC, as its new chair on July 1, 2020.

    Register in advance for this meeting:
    https://usc.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJIscuqsqjksG9YnVxO91UU9hXXK-RRaSVOt

    The Global Burden of Disease Project (GBD), funded for over 2 decades by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is the largest scientific collaboration in the world and now a partnership with the World Health Organization. It describes mortality and morbidity from major diseases, injuries and risk factors to health at global, national and regional levels. Examining trends from 1990 to the present and making comparisons across populations enables understanding of the changing health challenges facing people across the world in the 21st century and provides policy makers with the evidence to make key decisions as they pursue the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

    In 2017, the Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health used GBD data to demonstrate that outdoor and indoor air pollution, radon, and lead were likely responsible for 3 times the annual deaths from tuberculosis, malaria, and HIV AIDS combined. In follow up, Dr. Hu and colleagues initiated the GBD Pollution, Climate and Health Initiative (GBD PCHI), which aims to expand the GBD to include additional top-priority pollutants as well as climate change.

    In this talk, Dr. Hu will describe the GBD PCHI, now based at in the Keck USC Department of Preventive Medicine, with a focus on the challenge of estimating human exposure to pollutants in low and middle income countries with little data, and invite a discussion of the potential role of spatial sciences. Dr. Hu will also briefly discuss the Department of Preventive Medicine' nascent Pandemic Population Health Research Center and other collaboration opportunities.

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Anna Nagurney, University of Massachusetts Amherst

    Talk Title: Game Theory Network Models for Disaster Relief

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

    Abstract: The number of disasters is growing as well as the number of people affected by them with great associated challenges for effective disaster management. In this presentation, Dr. Nagurney will describe her team's research on the development of game theory network models for disaster relief that integrate financial flows from donors as well as the logistics associated with relief item deliveries. Both Generalized Nash Equilibrium as well as Nash Equilibrium constructs will be given and the associated methodologies for the formulation, analysis, and computation to the models outlined. Case studies on Hurricane Katrina as well as the tornados that hit western Massachusetts in 2011 will be presented, which provide surprising insights of relevance to policymakers.

    If time permits, Dr. Nagurney will highlight her team's additional recent work on stochastic game theory for disaster relief of relevance to the Covid-19 pandemic as well as game theory models for blood supply chains.

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Mark McKelvin, Jr., The Aerospace Corporation

    Talk Title: Digital Engineering: A Transformation of Systems Engineering Practice

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

    Abstract: Systems engineering is a transdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of complex systems that must satisfy the needs of their customers, users, and other stakeholders. As systems grow in scale and complexity, the implementation of new development methods in systems engineering is required. Advancements in digital technologies are unleashing innovations that provide an opportunity to transform the systems engineering practice. Digital engineering leverages the use of digital technologies to enable systems engineering across disciplines to support integrated system development. A systems engineering environment that is built on an integration of digital technologies enables critical and consistent decision-making throughout the system lifecycle, improves efficiency of engineering practices, and improves data sharing and collaboration to develop solutions that meet stakeholder needs. The ability to integrate across people, processes, and technology to provide system solutions at the speed of need separates digital engineering from traditional systems engineering approaches. This talk will present challenges in systems engineering practice and discuss key enablers for implementing digital engineering. Example applications of digital engineering in space systems development will be provided.

    Biography: Mark McKelvin, Jr. is a Senior Project Leader in Digital Engineering at The Aerospace Corporation and a Lecturer in the System Architecting and Engineering graduate program at the University of Southern California, Viterbi School of Engineering. At The Aerospace Corporation, he serves as the technical authority and team lead for the digital engineering implementation of Enterprise System Engineering for the United States Space Force portfolio architect. Prior to joining the Aerospace Corporation, he led the development of model-based engineering technology and techniques for space system development at the National Aeronautics Space Administration Jet Propulsion Laboratory as a software systems engineer and fault protection engineer. He is a Senior Member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and he serves as President of the International Council on Systems Engineering, Los Angeles Chapter. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Clark Atlanta University and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California, Berkeley.

    Speaker: Fotis Sotiropolous, Stony Brook University

    Talk Title: Tackling Complex Flow Problems via Numerical Simulation: From Jumping Fish and Heart Valves to River Flooding and Wind Energy

    Abstract: Simulation-based engineering science has emerged as a powerful approach for tackling the major societal problems of our time related to human health, environmental sustainability, and renewable energy. Fluid mechanics problems frequently at the center of many of these challenges are often so complex that simulation-based research is the only viable approach for tackling them. Examples range from disease promoting blood flow patterns in the human heart and bioinspired swimming robots to extreme flooding in waterways and harnessing renewable energy from wind, currents, and waves. Accurate numerical simulation of such flows poses a formidable challenge to even the most advanced computational methods available today. In this talk I will discuss the advances we have made in my group to develop a powerful computational framework, the Virtual Flow Simulator (VFS), which can: handle arbitrarily complex geometries encountered in real-life applications; simulate fluid-structure interaction for rigid and flexible bodies; account for two-phase flows and free surface effects; and carry out coherent-structure-resolving simulations of turbulent flows in arbitrarily complex domains with dynamically evolving boundaries. The ability of the method to yield striking new insights into the physics of a broad range of real-life problems will be demonstrated by discussing applications in aquatic biology, cardiovascular engineering, turbulence and transport processes in natural waterways, and wind and marine and hydrokinetic energy. Future grand challenges and opportunities for simulation-based fluid mechanics research will also be discussed.

    Biography: Fotis Sotiropoulos serves as Dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and SUNY Distinguished Professor of Civil Engineering at Stony Brook University. Before joining Stony Brook University, he was the James L. Record Professor of Civil Engineering; Director of the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory; and Director of the EOLOS wind energy research consortium at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities (2006-2015). Prior to that, he was on the faculty of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, with a joint appointment in the G. W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering (1995-2005). His research focuses on simulation-based engineering science for tackling complex, societally relevant fluid mechanics problems in energy, environment and human health applications. He has authored over 190 peer reviewed journal papers and book chapters and his research results have been featured on the cover of several prestigious journals. He has been awarded the 2019 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Hydrology Days Borland Lecture in Hydraulics, the 2017 Hunter Rouse Hydraulic Engineering Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), a 2014 distinguished lecturer of the Mortimer and Raymond Sackler Institute of Advanced Studies at Tel Aviv University, and a Career Award from the National Science Foundation. Sotiropoulos is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and has twice won the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics Gallery of Fluid Motion (2009, 2011).

    Speaker: Dr. Qiang Huang, USC

    Talk Title: Engineering-Informed Machine Learning for Shape Distortion Control in Additive Manufacturing

    Abstract: Geometric shape accuracy is an important quality measure for products built by additive
    manufacturing (AM) processes. With increased availability of AM product data and advances in computing,
    Machine Learning for AM (ML4AM) has become a viable strategy for enhancing printing performance. We
    propose a Shape Deviation Generator (SDG) under an engineering-informed convolution formulation to
    facilitate the learning and prediction of 3D printing accuracy. Shape deviation representation, individual layer
    input function and transfer function for the convolution formulation are proposed and derived. A deconvolution
    problem for identifying the convolution kernel is formulated to captures the inter-layer interaction effects in the
    layer-by-layer fabrication processes. The printed 2D and 3D shapes via a stereolithography (SLA) process are
    used to demonstrate the proposed modeling framework and derive new process insights for AM processes.

    Biography: Dr. Qiang Huang is currently a Professor at the Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles. He was the holder of Gordon S. Marshall Early Career Chair in Engineering at USC from 2012 to 2016. He received National
    Science Foundation CAREER award in 2011 and IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering Best Paper Award from IEEE Robotics and Automation Society in 2014. He is Department Editor for IISE Transactions, Associate Editor for ASME

    Speaker: Sina Heydari, USC AME PhD Student

    Talk Title: Hierarchical control in sea star inspired locomotion

    Abstract: There is a growing effort to understand decentralized control mechanisms, particularly in application to robotic systems with distributed sensors and actuators. Sea stars, being equipped with hundreds of tube feet, are an ideal model system for studying decentralized sensing and actuation. The activity of the tube feet is orchestrated by a nerve net that is distributed throughout the body; there is no central brain. We developed mathematical models of the biomechanics of the tube feet and the sea star body. We then formulated hierarchical control laws that capture salient features of the sea star nervous system. Namely, at the component level, the individual tube feet follow a state-dependent feedback controller. At the system level, a directionality command is communicated to all tube feet. We studied the locomotion gaits afforded by this control model. We find that these minimally-coupled tube feet coordinate to generate robust forward locomotion on different terrains. Our model also predicts different gait transitions consistent with our experiments performed on Protoreaster nodosus. These findings offer a new paradigm for walking using soft actuators, with potential applications to autonomous robotic systems.

    Biography: Sina Heydari is a Ph.D. candidate working in Dr. Kanso's Bio-inspired motion lab. His research focuses on decentralized sensory-motor control in sea stars and hydrodynamic interaction of passive swimmers in potential flow. Sina received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Sharif University and his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from USC.

    Abstract: Titus will answer questions such as, why should one learn C++ in 2020? Where does it stand compared to other languages? What are the most important skills of a software engineer? How important is it to know about your hardware? How does the C++ standard committee work? What is the C++ development flow at Google? How fast does your code need to be to cope with today's needs? How to write distributed, reliable, and parallel software?

    Meeting ID: 971 5570 9814
    Passcode: 2020

    Biography: Titus Winters is a Senior Staff Software Engineer at Google, where he has worked since 2010. At Google, he is the library lead for Google's C++ codebase: 250 million lines of code that will be edited by 12K distinct engineers in a month. He served several years as the chair of the subcommittee for the design of the C++ standard library.

    For the last 9 years, Titus and his teams have been organizing, maintaining, and evolving the foundational components of Google's C++ codebase using modern automation and tooling. Along the way, he has started several Google projects that are believed to be in the top 10 largest refactorings in human history. That unique scale and perspective has informed all of his thinking on the care and feeding of software systems. His most recent project is the book "Software Engineering at Google" (aka "The Flamingo Book"), published by O'Reilly in early 2020.

    Speaker: Walid Saad, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Virgina Tech

    Talk Title: Reliable Low Latency Communications for Connected Autonomy: Experienced Deep Learning and Control

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

    Abstract: In this talk, we provide an overview on the frontier of research in the area of ultra reliable low latency communications (URLLC) for connected autonomy. In particular, we first introduce a novel framework, dubbed experienced deep learning, that combines deep reinforcement learning with generative adversarial networks (GANs) to enable model-free URLLC under limited data availability and without requiring any knowledge or assumptions on the delay models of the wireless users. This framework is particularly suitable to enable reliable and low latency connectivity for connected autonomy applications whose performance is highly sensitive to the dynamics of the wireless network environment. We show how the proposed framework can intelligently optimize wireless resources while balancing the tradeoff between reliability, latency, and rate. This approach presents a major departure from prior URLLC approaches that often ignore the rate requirements of the users and rely on historic data or on unrealistic delay modeling assumptions. Then, we turn our attention to the problem of joint communications and control for autonomous connected vehicles. In this area, we introduce a new cyber-physical approach for characterizing the wireless reliability of an autonomous vehicle system while being explicitly cognizant of its control system requirements. After characterizing reliability, we show how one can optimize the operation of the autonomous vehicle system while jointly taking into account the delay of the vehicular network and the stability of the control system The synergies between URLLC and control system designs are then discussed. We conclude the talk with an overview on future opportunities in these exciting areas.

    Speaker: Shilpa Khatri, University of California Merced

    Talk Title: Fluid-Structure Interactions within Marine Phenomena

    Abstract: To understand the fluid dynamics of marine phenomena fluid-structure interaction problems must be solved. Challenges exist in developing numerical techniques to solve these complex flow problems with boundary conditions at fluid-structure interfaces. I will present details of two different problems where these challenges are handled: (1) modeling of pulsating soft corals and (2) simulations of crab odor-capture organs. Both of these problems will be motivated by field and experimental work in the marine sciences. I will discuss these related data and provide comparisons with the modeling.

    Biography: Shilpa Khatri received her Ph.D. in 2009 from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences (NYU). After a postdoctoral position in the Department of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, she joined the faculty in Applied Mathematics at UC Merced in 2014. The focus of her research is fluid dynamics arising in the context of marine phenomena, such as the transport of nutrients, organisms, and pollutants in the ocean. She designs numerical methods for mathematical models that she develops and analyzes while comparing with experimental data - specifically for fluid-structure interactions and multiphase flows.

  • CAIS Seminar: Meredith Gore (Michigan State University) - Wildlife Trafficking in the Anthropocene: Conservation, Crime & Communities

    Wed, Oct 14, 2020 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Meredith Gore, Michigan State University

    Talk Title: Wildlife Trafficking in the Anthropocene: Conservation, Crime & Communities

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

    Abstract: Levels of unsustainable and illegal natural resource exploitation have escalated in scope, scale, and severity. Illegal over-harvest of plant and animal species occurs around the world and poses risks to species, ecosystems, and people. Beyond the risk of species loss, overexploitation represents stolen natural resources, is associated with corruption and insecurity, human rights abuses, and regional destabilization in some of the world's most vulnerable developing nations. This presentation will discuss conservation criminology-”an interdisciplinary and applied science for understanding risks to global natural resources. Two case studies will illustrate how conservation criminology offers novel human dimensions insight about crime prevention and more responsive law enforcement in dynamic and multi-scale conservation contexts. The first case study tracks more than a decade of research on environmental insecurity, illegal logging and wildlife trafficking in Madagascar using participatory and interdisciplinary intelligence mapping. The second case study highlights illegal urban wildlife trafficking in Democratic Republic of Congo and Republic of Congo using negative space and participatory risk mapping of illicit supply chains as well as crime-place network theory and crime science. Although the presentation will focus mostly on wildlife trafficking and illegal logging, conservation criminology is applicable to other causes and consequences of environmental change, including illegal fishing and mining, invasive species, emerging infectious disease and water insecurity.

    Biography: Prof. Meredith Gore is a conservation social scientist leveraging concepts of risk to enhance understanding of human-environment relationships. Her scholarship is designed to build evidence for action. The majority of her scientific inquiry can be described as convergence research on conservation issues such as wildlife trafficking, illegal logging, fishing and mining. Prof. Gore received her PhD in Natural Resource Policy and Management from Cornell University, MA in Environment and Resource Policy from George Washington University, and BA in Anthropology and Environmental Studies from Brandeis University.

    Series: NL Seminar

    Abstract: In this talk I will present some of our recent work that focuses on understanding the meaning of user generated texts and extracting useful information. First, I will discuss the design of neural pairwise ranking models, and their applications to semantic analysis of hashtags. Our best ranking model, that incorporates multi task learning and Gaussian feature vectorization, can segment hashtags into meaningful word sequences. For Example dtlaartsdistrict DTLA Arts District with an over 95 percent accuracy. Second, I will highlight the importance of training customized BERT models for noisy text and zero shot transfer learning. I will provide two case studies 1 BERTOverflow model we trained on in-domain data that significantly outperforms off the shelf BERT on the new StackOverflow NER corpus. 2 GigaBERT, a bilingual BERT we developed specifically for English and Arabic, which performs better than Googles multilingual BERT and Facebooks XLM RoBERTa for cross lingual information extraction. I will conclude with our new work on annotating data and training automatic models to extract COVID 10 related events from Twitter.

    Biography: Wei Xu is an assistant professor in the School of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Before joining Georgia Tech, she was an assistant professor at The Ohio State University since 2016. Her research interests are in natural language processing, machine learning, and social media. Her recent work focuses on language generation, semantics, information extraction, and reading assistive technology. She has received the NSF CRII Award, Best Paper Award at COLING, CrowdFlower AI for Everyone Award, and Criteo Faculty Research Award. She recently served as a senior area chair for ACL 2020 and an area chair, workshop chair, and publicity chair for EMNLP and NAACL conferences. She has been co organizing the Workshop on Noisy User generated Text annually.

    Title: Reducing User-Perceived Latency in Mobile Applications via Prefetching and Caching



    Prefetching and caching is a fundamental approach to reduce user-perceived latency, and has been shown effective in various domains for decades. However, its application on today's mobile apps remains largely under-explored. This is an important but overlooked research area since mobile devices have become the dominant platform, and this trend is reflected in the billions of mobile devices and millions of mobile apps in use today. At the same time, user-perceived latency has been shown to have a large impact on mobile-user experience and can cause significant economic consequences.

    In my dissertation, I aim to fill this gap by providing a multifaceted solution to establish the foundation for exploring various aspects of prefetching and caching techniques in the mobile-app domain. To that end, my dissertation consists of four major elements. As a first step, I conducted an extensive study to investigate the opportunities for applying prefetching and caching techniques in mobile apps, providing empirical evidence on their applicability and showing insights to guide future techniques. Second, I developed PALOMA, the first content-based prefetching technique for mobile apps using program analysis, which has achieved significant latency reduction with high accuracy and negligible overhead. Third, I constructed HiPHarness, a tailorable framework for investigating history-based prefetching in a wide range of scenarios. Guided by today's stringent privacy regulations that have limited the access to mobile-user data, I further leveraged HiPHarness to conduct the first study on history-based prefetching with "small" prediction models, demonstrating its feasibility on mobile platforms and in turn, opening up a new research area. Finally, to reduce the manual effort required in evaluating prefetching and caching techniques, I have devised FrUITeR, a framework for assessing test-reuse techniques in order to automatically select suitable test cases to evaluate prefetching and caching techniques, without real users' engagement as required previously.

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Talk Title: Automated Stratified Wake Classification

    Abstract: There has been increasing interest in how and whether early wake information coming from body geometry and initial conditions can persist into a long-lived structure in a stratified fluid. As the wake evolves, the wake goes through various flow regimes mapped out in Re and Fr parameter space. In this talk, I will propose an automated pattern detection algorithm that classifies modes from Dynamic Mode Decomposition of a wake based on criterias set by the characteristics of each regime. Wake data from both experiment and simulation are explored to improve the robustness of this classifier, especially when the flow information is limited spatially and contaminated by noise.


    Biography: Chris Ohh is a Ph.D. student under Dr. Spedding. Her research focuses on identifying traceable stratified wake signatures from various initial conditions. She earned both a B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from USC.

  • CAIS Seminar: Rediet Abebe (University of California, Berkeley) – Modeling the Impact of Shocks on Poverty

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Rediet Abebe, University of California, Berkeley

    Talk Title: Modeling the Impact of Shocks on Poverty

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

    Abstract: Poverty is a multifaceted and dynamic phenomena impacting billions of people worldwide. Despite its prevalence, there remains much to be understood about what makes families susceptible to experiencing economic distress. In recent years, income shocks -- which constitute unexpected expenses or interruptions to one's income flow -- have garnered increased public attention as being intricately intertwined with poverty. Despite a vast body of empirical work showing the impact of shocks on welfare, they do not play a correspondingly central role in the design of assistance programs.

    In this talk, we present a mathematical and computational analysis of shocks. We pose a set of algorithmic questions about allocation of subsidies in the presence of shocks and present optimal and near-optimal solutions for various general settings. We computationally analyze the impact of shocks on poverty using a longitudinal, survey-based dataset, revealing insights about the interactions of different types of shocks. We discuss how these insights can inform the design and deployment of assistance programs and highlight new directions at this emerging interface between algorithms, public finance, and social work.

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jorge Ortiz, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Rutgers University

    Talk Title: Human-Centered Intelligent Sensing Systems

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

    Abstract: This talk is about the design of systems and algorithms for sensing systems that interact directly with humans. I will discuss our work in the Cyber Physical Intelligence lab (CyPhy-Lab) at Rutgers University where we study sensing systems that learn about human behavior, from human feedback, and with humans to improve system objectives and enhance people's lives. I will describe three on-going projects that explore these themes more precisely. First I will describe PillSense, a smart pillbox system for medication adherence. This system helps us learn about how humans take their medication and how physical design is tightly coupled to the system's ability to identify users effectively. We describe two pill box designs and associated algorithms to address the challenges posed. Then, I will discuss our on-going project Maestro, a system that learns from humans to fill the semantic gap between sensor measurements and their interpretation, in order to facilitate the construction of smart ambient-sensing applications in buildings. Finally, I will discuss project Paz, a system that attempts to learn when to interact with humans as we work to facilitate agent-human collaboration to both attain system objectives (i.e. efficiency) and enhance human productivity, comfort, and entertainment.

    Biography: Jorge Ortiz is an Assistant Professor at Rutgers University where he directs the Cyber-Physical Intelligence Lab (CyPhy-Lab) and is where he is also a member of the Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB). His work focuses on building and studying sensing systems that learn about human behavior, from human feedback, and with humans to improve system objectives and enhance people's lives. These include a broad range of sensing systems including smart objects, smart built environments, and smart cities, more broadly. Prior to joining Rutgers in 2018, he was a Research Staff Member at IBM Research working on machine learning and the internet of things. In the five years he was at IBM, he attained 12 patents and published in multiple top academic conferences, journals, and books and was awarded 'Best Poster' at IEEE/ACM IPSN '08, two 'Best Paper Runner-ups' at Buildsys '15, 'Best Paper' at ICISSP '18, and 'Best Paper Runner-up' at IoTDI '19. At IBM he led teams to commercialize two major research projects and bring them to market. Dr. Ortiz also has extensive industry experience, which includes several years at Oracle Corporation and has worked at and led multiple startups. He is currently serving as co-TPC chair for Buildsys 2020. Dr. Ortiz attained his Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley in 2013, M.S. in Computer Science from Berkeley in 2010, and a BS in Computer Science from MIT in 2003.

    Speaker: Mitul Luhar, USC

    Talk Title: Tunable Porous and Patterned Surfaces for Turbulence Control

    Abstract: Control of wall-bounded turbulent flows has been an important area of research for several decades. However, the development of effective control techniques has been hindered by the limited availability of computationally tractable models that can guide design and optimization. This talk describes extensions of the resolvent analysis formalism that seek to address this limitation. Under the resolvent formulation, the turbulent velocity field is expressed as a superposition of propagating modes (resolvent modes) identified via a gain-based decomposition of the Navier-Stokes equations. Control is introduced into this framework via changes to the boundary conditions or through additional forcing terms in the governing equations. These changes alter the structure and gain of resolvent modes, whereby a reduction in gain is shown to be indicative of mode suppression and drag reduction. This modeling framework reproduces previous observations for passive control techniques such as sharkskin-inspired riblets, compliant walls, and anisotropic porous materials with minimal computation. Ongoing work builds on these observations to develop optimization routines for riblet shape and to design, fabricate, and test porous materials that can passively control turbulent flows

    Biography: Mitul Luhar joined the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at USC as Assistant Professor in January 2015 and was appointed as the Henry Salvatori Early Career Chair in 2020. He has received the AFOSR Young Investigator Program award as well as the NSF Career award. Prior to joining USC, Mitul was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at Caltech. He earned his Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from MIT in 2012, and his B.A. and M.Eng. degrees in Engineering from Cambridge University in 2007.

    Speaker: Dr. Jian Cao, Northwestern University

    Talk Title: Manufacturing -“ An Integration Platform

    Abstract: Manufacturing translates ideas, innovation and raw materials into products used by societies as a driving force for raising their living standards. To enhance the versatility of manufacturing processes and to fully integrate design and manufacturing for system optimization, research efforts at NIMSI are rooted in
    discovering new processes for flexible, personalized and secure manufacturing, and in enhancing system optimization by using the combination of the ICME (integrated computational materials engineering) and datadriven approaches. This talk will provide an overview of these activities and then focus on selected processes
    and their fundamentals, and techniques including machine learning to achieve better process outcomes and faster predictions compared to conventional methods. The processes to be highlighted include rapid dieless sheet forming for producing three-dimensional sheet parts without geometry-specific tooling, and metal-based powder-blown additive manufacturing.

    Biography: Dr. Cao (MIT 95, MIT 92, SJTU 89) is the Cardiss Collins Professor, Director of Northwestern Initiative for Manufacturing Science and Innovation, and an Associate Vice President for Research (AVPR) at Northwestern University. She served
    at the National Science Foundation as a program director for two years. Professor Cao is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), ASME, SME, and of the International Academy for Production Engineering
    (CIRP). Her major awards include the ASME Milton C. Shaw Manufacturing Research Medal (2020), SME Gold Medal (2020), Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship from DoD (2019), Charles Russ Richards Memorial Award (2017) from ASME and Pi Tau
    Sigma, SME Frederick W. Taylor Research Medal (2016), ASME Blackall Machine Tool and Gage Award (2012, 2018), ASME Young Investigator Award (2006) from Applied Mechanics Division, and the NSF CAREER Award. Prof. Cao is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Materials Processing Technology. She
    served as President of the SME North America Manufacturing Research Institute, and Chair of ASME Manufacturing Engineering Division. She is a recipient of the ASME Dedicated Service Award (2011). As an AVPR, Prof. Cao fosters the collaboration between disciplines across and beyond Northwestern. She is a Board
    member of mHUB, Chicago's first innovation center focused on physical product development and manufacturing.

    Abstract: The term 'new normal' has become a ubiquitous catchphrase that has come into our lexicon in various professions since the Covid-19 pandemic. As universities prepare for the new normal, online learning has become an indispensable part of higher education in the pandemic and post-pandemic era. Although students and their families may lament the loss of social life on campus, there is no need to dread online education. If we can adapt new technology and pedagogy to bring remote students together for meaningful interaction, online learning will not become isolated learning, but instead, a transformational opportunity to nurture a more resilient and tolerant generation during times of global crisis and social unrest.

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Shyam Gollakota, Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington

    Talk Title: Insect-Scale Wireless Robotics

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

    Abstract: The concept of insect-scale robotics has long been in the realm of science fiction rather than reality. It is particularly challenging given the extreme size, weight and power requirements for sensing, computing, communication, actuation as well as the need to power such wireless systems. In this talk, I will present a sequence of recent and ongoing research projects that design programmable wireless technologies to achieve this vision. I will first present bio-integrated solutions that combine the best of technology and nature to integrate sensing, computing and communication functionalities onto tiny live flying insects like bees to create a mobile IoT platform. I will then present bio-inspired sensor systems that take their inspiration from nature to create wireless sensors. Specifically, I will talk about a fully wireless, power-autonomous, mechanically steerable vision system that imitates insect head motion to capture wide-angle views at a low power. Using this vision system, I will present the world's smallest terrestrial robot that can move at up to 3.5 centimeters per second, support vision, and operate for 63 to 260 minutes in a power-autonomous manner. I will conclude by talking about our recent work on airdropping wireless sensors in remote and difficult to reach locations using tiny drones and moths as well as ongoing efforts tracking murder hornets in collaboration with the Washington Department of Agriculture.

    Biography: Shyam Gollakota is an Associate Professor of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington with adjunct positions in the departments of Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

  • Yoga with USC WiSE Alumna: Kathleen Sand

    Wed, Oct 28, 2020 @ 05:30 PM - 06:30 PM

    USC Viterbi School of Engineering

    Receptions & Special Events


    Instructor:
    Kathleen Sand
    Ph.D., Biomechanics, USC, 2004
    Current: Senior Regional Director of Operations, CorePower Yoga

    Kathleen (Kat) will guide you through a 60-minute all-levels, vinyasa yoga class. Vinyasa is a Sanskrit word, meaning "to place in a special way", or "to move with intention." Overtime, Vinyasa has grown to describe a style of yoga that can also be described as "flow" or "breath to movement." We will begin class with a few seated breathing exercises to connect with body and breath, and transition into a full-body yoga practice, ending with a bit of seated meditation. Kat's intention is to provide the time and space to connect you to your breath and your body; connect with friends and colleagues, either in-person or virtually; provide 60-minutes of decision-free time to focus solely on you; and to have fun as we explore layers of accessibility to achieve your personalized yoga practice.

    Kathleen (Kat) will guide you through a 60-minute all-levels, vinyasa yoga class. Vinyasa is a Sanskrit word, meaning "to place in a special way", or "to move with intention." Overtime, Vinyasa has grown to describe a style of yoga that can also be described as "flow" or "breath to movement." We will begin class with a few seated breathing exercises to connect with body and breath, and transition into a full-body yoga practice, ending with a bit of seated meditation. Kat's intention is to provide the time and space to connect you to your breath and your body; connect with friends and colleagues, either in-person or virtually; provide 60-minutes of decision-free time to focus solely on you; and to have fun as we explore layers of accessibility to achieve your personalized yoga practice.

    Thu, Oct 29, 2020 @ 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

    USC Viterbi School of Engineering

    Receptions & Special Events


    Speaker:
    Shirin Faraji
    Postdoctoral Scholar, Chemistry, USC, 2014-2016
    Current: Associate Professor of Chemistry, University of Groningen

    Abstract: Despite the considerable progress towards gender equality, an imbalance still persists in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Worldwide, more women graduate from universities than men, yet we remain an underrepresented minority in the STEM fields, including theoretical and computational chemistry. Even though a recent study by Holloway and McGaughey documents the rising tide of female participation and leadership in computational/theoretical chemistry community, awareness, caution, and actions remain vital for a sustained progress towards gender equality. In this presentation, I will share my experience in navigating the landscape of academic science, from my undergraduate studies in Tehran to my current position in Groningen, with an emphasis on changing challenges faced by women and the role of mentorship. Addressing the diversity in fundamental sciences is a long-term challenge, and I am happy to take it on, one step at a time, both by doing the science and doing something for science.

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Arturo Cajal, USC AME PhD Student

    Talk Title: Modeling natural transition in RANS simulations

    Abstract: One approach for improving the accuracy of Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) simulations is to model the transition from laminar to turbulent flow process, particularly for low Reynolds numbers and transitional flow applications. In this work, two RANS turbulence models and three RANS transitional models, with different formulation approaches, are assessed and compared. Physics-based models offer a broader range of applicability because no empirical correlations are needed to model the transition process. Additionally, these models avoid some of the current Computational Fluid Dynamics limitations such as the use of integral quantities in unstructured grids and/or parallel computations. Thus, the physics-based Laminar Kinetic Energy model was chosen to include the effects of crossflow instabilities to make it more robust and potentially improve its predictive capability.


    Biography: Arturo is a Ph.D. student working in Prof. A. Uranga Aerodynamics Design and Research Laboratory. His research focuses on modeling transition from laminar to turbulent flow for low Reynolds number flows. Arturo received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in 2016, and his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from USC in 2018.
