    Sonny Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Henry Burton, Englekirk Presidential Chair in Structural Engineering, University of California, Los Angeles

    Talk Title: Seismic Risk and Resilience Modeling of Water Distribution Systems

    Abstract: Water distribution systems are critical to the well-being of communities since they contribute to the functionality of all other infrastructure. Earthquakes and other natural hazards can cause damage to the components of a water distribution system, causing far-reaching socioeconomic consequences. This presentation will discuss some recent advancements in seismic risk and resilience modeling of water distribution systems. First, an end-to-end simulation framework to evaluate post-earthquake functional loss and restoration of a water system is developed, which encompasses seismic hazard characterization, component damage, hydraulic performance and network restoration modeling. The modeling framework is validated using data from the 2014 South Napa Earthquake and extended to a hypothetical scenario. To deal with the temporal complexities that are embedded in the post-earthquake restoration process, a general dynamic updating framework is developed to reduce uncertainties in the outcomes of post-event recovery forecasts using Bayesian Inferencing, by exploiting real-time data. The specific example of updating post-earthquake functional recovery forecasts is presented and validated on a real pipe network (Napa water system) and event (2014 earthquake and recovery). The end-to-end framework is then extended to enable stochastic event set assessments of the water network using the UCERF2 earthquake rupture forecast model. Given that evaluating a large set of events with end-to-end simulation modeling is computationally expensive, a framework that uses active learning to select a subset of ground motion maps and associated occurrence rates that reasonably estimates the water network risk is also developed.



    Biography: Dr. Henry V. Burton is an Associate Professor and the Englekirk Presidential Chair in Structural Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles. His research is directed towards understanding and modeling the relationship between the performance of infrastructure systems within the built environment, and the ability of communities to minimize the extent of socioeconomic disruption following extreme events. Dr. Burton is a registered structural engineer in the state of California. Prior to obtaining his PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University, he spent six years in practice at Degenkolb Engineers, where he worked on numerous projects involving design of new buildings and seismic evaluation and retrofit of existing buildings. He is a recipient of the National Science Foundation Next Generation of Disaster Researchers Fellowship (2014) and the National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2016).

  • NL Seminar-The Unreasonable Syntactic Expressivity of RNNs

    Thu, Nov 12, 2020 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: John Hewitt, Stanford University

    Talk Title: The Unreasonable Syntactic Expressivity of RNNs

    Series: NL Seminar

    Abstract: In 2015, Andrej Karpathy posted a now famous blog post on The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Recurrent Neural Networks. To summarize this sense of wonder, Karpathy emphasized We will train RNNs to generate text character by character and ponder the question how is that even possible? RNNs empirically generate natural language with high syntactic fidelity, but their success is not well understood theoretically. In this talk, I will provide theoretical insight into this success, proving in a finite precision setting that RNNs can efficiently generate bounded hierarchical languages that reflect the scaffolding of natural language syntax. I will introduce Dyck k,m, the language of well nested brackets of k types and m bounded nesting depth, reflecting the bounded memory needs and long distance dependencies of natural language syntax. The best previously known results use Ok m 2 memory hidden units to generate these languages. I will prove that an RNN with O m log k hidden units suffices, an exponential reduction in memory, by an explicit construction. Finally, I will show that no algorithm, even with unbounded computation, can suffice with o m log k hidden units.

    Biography: John is a 3rd year PhD student in computer science at Stanford University, advised by Chris Manning and Percy Liang. He works on understanding and improving how unsupervised neural networks learn and process human languages. He is supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, and is the recipient of an EMNLP Runner Up Best Paper award.
