    Talk Title: Hydrofoiling Honeybee

    Abstract: Honeybees display a unique bio-locomotion strategy at the air-water interface. When waters adhesive force traps them on the surface, their wetted wings lose ability to generate aerodynamic thrust. However, they adequately locomote, reaching a speed up to three body lengths-1. Honeybees use their wetted wings as hydrofoils for their water surface propulsion. Their locomotion imparts hydrodynamic momentum to the surrounding water in the form of asymmetric waves and a deeper water jet stream, generating approximately 20 μN average thrust. The wing kinematics show that the wings stroke plane is skewed, and the wing supinates and pronates during its power and recovery strokes, respectively. The flow under a mechanical model wing mimicking the motion of a bees wing further shows that non-zero net horizontal momentum is imparted to the water, demonstrating net thrust. Moreover, a periodic acceleration and deceleration of water is observed, which provides additional forward movement by recoil locomotion. Scaling analysis of the hydrodynamic forces associated with the wing motion indicates that the wings utilize added mass force (unsteady inertial force associated with the pulling of the water attached to the wing). Hydrofoiling highlights the versatility of their flapping-wing systems that are capable of generating propulsion with fluids whose densities span three orders of magnitude. This discovery inspires a novel aerial-aquatic hybrid vehicle.

  • NL Seminar-BlackBox NLP: What are we looking for, and where do we stand?

    Thu, Jan 30, 2020 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Sarah Wiegreffe , Georgia Tech

    Talk Title: BlackBox NLP: What are we looking for, and where do we stand?

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: The widespread adoption of deep learning in NLP has led to a new state-of-the-art on many tasks. Neural nets are complex systems that are hard to interpret, leaving researchers with little ability to say *why* their model is doing so well. As a consequence, interpretability and explainability hold a new relevance. In this talk, I will present case studies in the subfield of interpretability for NLP, as well as the research goals of the subtopics that fall under this umbrella. I will present a case-study of the necessary conditions for attention modules to be used for explaining classification model predictions, as well as a clinical application of attention mechanisms in physician decision support. I will conclude by discussing future directions, including in natural language explanations for reinforcement learning systems.

    Biography: Sarah Wiegreffe is a Computer Science PhD student in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech. Her research lies at the intersection of machine learning and NLP, with a particular interest in interpretability, explainability, and model robustness. In the past, she has worked in clinical applications of NLP and ML. During her PhD, she has held research internships at Google AI and Sutter Health. She obtained her B.S. in Data Science from the College of Charleston. In her free time, Sarah enjoys rock climbing, traveling, and rock music.

    Talk Title: Recent Advancements in Environmental Virus Fate and Detection

    Abstract: Recent Advancements in Environmental Virus Fate and Detection
    The detection and removal of infectious viruses in the environment is critical for protecting human health. A number of factors complicate virus detection and obscure their environmental fate,including their small size, their lack of conserved genes, their rapid evolution, and the difficulty in
    culturing many important strains. This seminar will review recent advances in environmental virology, including our work on the mechanistic fate and detection of viruses in wastewater and
    drinking water treatment processes.



    Biography: Dr. Krista Rule Wigginton is an associate professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the
    University of Michigan. Prior to joining the faculty at UM, she was an assistant professor at the University of Maryland, College Park from 2011-2012. Her research focuses on applications of environmental biotechnology in drinking water and wastewater treatment. In particular, her research group develops new methods to detect and analyze the fate of emerging pollutants inthe environment.

    Dr. Wigginton received her B.S. degree in Chemistry from the University of Idaho, and her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Environmental Engineering from Virginia Tech. After
    completing her Ph.D. degree, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland from 2008-2011.

  • AI for Software and Software for AI

    Fri, Jan 31, 2020 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Lin Tan, Purdue University

    Talk Title: AI for Software and Software for AI

    Abstract: This talk will present research focuses in two directions: (1) using software testing approaches to improve the dependability of machine learning systems, and (2) leveraging machine learning and natural language processing techniques to improve software dependability. Machine learning software is widely used in domains including aircraft collision avoidance systems, Alzheimers disease diagnosis, and autonomous driving cars. Despite the requirement for high reliability, machine learning software is difficult to test and debug. This talk will describe CRADLE, a new approach that (1) performs cross-implementation inconsistency checking to detect bugs in deep learning software, and (2) analyzes anomaly propagation to localize faulty functions in deep learning software. On the other hand, machine learning and natural language processing techniques have unique advantages in completing and automating challenging software development tasks. This talk will present techniques that automatically analyze software text, such as code comments, API documentation, and processor specifications, to extract specifications, generate test cases, and detect software bugs. In addition, this talk will discuss how to build machine learning models to produce specifications and bug patterns automatically from existing bugs and their commit messages to find new bugs.

    Biography: Lin Tan is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Purdue University. She received her PhD from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Her research interests include software dependability and software text analytics. Dr. Tan co-authored papers have received ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Awards at MSR in 2018 and FSE in 2016; and IEEE Micros Top Picks in 2006. Dr. Tan was a recipient of Canada Research Chair, an NSERC Discovery Accelerator Supplements Award, an Ontario Early Researcher Award, an Ontario Professional Engineers Award -” Engineering Medal for Young Engineer, two Google Faculty Research Awards, a Facebook research award, and an IBM CAS Research Project of the Year Award.
