  • CS Colloquium: Ankur Mehta (UCLA) - Towards $1 robots

    Tue, Feb 01, 2022 @ 02:30 PM - 03:50 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Ankur Mehta, University of California, Los Angeles

    Talk Title: Towards $1 robots

    Series: Computer Science Colloquium

    Abstract: Note: *New time: 2:30PM-3:50PM PT*

    Robots are pretty great -- they can make some hard tasks easy, some dangerous tasks safe, or some unthinkable tasks possible. And they're just plain fun to boot. But how many robots have you interacted with recently? And where do you think that puts you compared to the rest of the world's people?

    In contrast to computation, automating physical interactions continues to be limited in scope and breadth. I'd like to change that. But in particular, I'd like to do so in a way that's accessible to everyone, everywhere. In our lab, we work to lower barriers to robotics design, creation, and operation through
    material and mechanism design, computational tools, and mathematical analysis. We hope that with our efforts, everyone will be soon able to enjoy the benefits of robotics to work, to learn, and to play.

    **Prof. Ankur Mehta will give his talk in person at SGM 124 and we will also host the talk over Zoom.**

    Register in advance for this webinar at:

    https://usc.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_dUyqi3ZTQiWuseUgfp4fYw

    After registering, attendees will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.


    Biography: Now, this is a story all about how
    My life took me to where I am now
    And I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there
    I'll tell you how I became a prof at UCLA.

    From East Pennsylvania born and raised
    MIT is where I spent the next of my days
    Getting my Masters and Bachelor's too
    ECE is the field I did then pursue.

    Then a couple of years until I finally would
    From California, Berkeley get my doctor hood
    I got in one lil' postdoc at MIT CSAIL
    And then I moved to LA just south of Bel Air.

    Prof. Ankur Mehta is an assistant professor of Electrical and computer Engineering at UCLA, and directs the Laboratory for Embedded Machines and Ubiquitous Robots (LEMUR). Pushing towards his visions of a future filled with robots, his research interests involve printable robotics, rapid design and
    fabrication, control systems, and multi-agent networks. He has received the NSF CAREER award and a Samueli fellowship, and has received best paper awards in the IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine and the International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS).

    Prior to joining the UCLA faculty, Prof. Mehta was a postdoc at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratories investigating design automation for printable robots. Before to that, he conducted research as a graduate student at UC Berkeley in wireless sensor networks and systems, small autonomous aerial robots and rockets, control systems, and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS).

    When not in the lab, Ankur enjoys puzzles, ultimate frisbee, board games.

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jie Gao, Department of Computer Science, Rutgers University

    Talk Title: Protecting Data Privacy in an Increasingly Connected World

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

    Abstract: Ubiquitous sensing, wireless communication and distributed computation have transformed the way we interact with the physical world. While we celebrate the convenience and the improved quality of life having smart devices around us, the data collection practices have moved from remote fields to private living environments and work spaces; and data collected have also shifted from non-sensitive scientific data to personal, sensitive data that is closely related to the user's health conditions, emotional states, physical activities and social relationships. In this talk I will review some of our recent work on protecting privacy of sensitive data by minimalist-style sensing and targeted data perturbation, as well as fundamental challenges/impossibility results regarding data privacy and utility.

    Biography: Professor Jie Gao is currently Professor in Department of computer science, Rutgers University. She was on the faculty of Computer Science department at Stony Brook University from 2005-2019. She received B.Eng from the Special Class of the Gifted Young, University of Science and Technology of China in 1999, Ph.D in Computer Science from Stanford University in 2004 and was a postdoc at Caltech from 2004-2005. She received the NSF career award in 2006, IMC best paper award (2009), EWSN best paper award (2021) and multiple Research Excellence Awards in computer science department of Stony Brook. She is currently serving on the editorial board of ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks, International Journal of Computational Geometry and Applications and IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering. She published over 140 referred papers in computer networking and theoretical computer science fields, and has graduated 17 Ph.D students.

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Artur Tyliszczak, Częstochowa University of Technology, Częstochowa, Slaskie, Poland

    Talk Title: Passive and Active Control of Turbulent Jets and Flames -” A CFD Research

    Abstract: Interest in flow control techniques is driven by a possible improvement of performance, safety and efficiency of various technical devices. Existing strategies of steering and controlling fluid flows can be divided into two approaches: passive and active. The former is based on shaping the flow domains and is usually optimized for specific flow conditions. The latter requires an external energy input (an excitation, forcing), which can be varying in response to the instantaneous flow behavior. The active methods are thus more costly but also much more flexible. Under a variety of different flow regimes, they result in a better overall response than the passive methods. In this talk, I will focus on the CFD study of passive and active control applications for jets and flames. In the latter case, proper flow control is especially important as the efficiency of combustion processes is directly related to fuel-oxidizer mixing -” a process, which we would like to have under full control. I will discuss to what extent the flow field can be modified and controlled by the selection of shapes of jet nozzles or tuning of excitation parameters.

    Biography: Artur Tyliszczak is a Professor in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science at Częstochowa University of Technology (CUT) in Poland. He leads the CFD Research Group. He earned an M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1997 from the CUT and a PhD degree in 2002 from the CUT and von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics (Belgium). He worked at Cambridge University (UK) as a Marie-Curie Experienced Researcher (2010-2011) and a visiting professor (2016). His group works on the development of high-order numerical methods for CFD and their applications for open and near-wall non-reacting and reacting flows. Currently, his main research concentrates on passive and active flow control in jet type flows and flows in porous and granular layers. Artur Tyliszczak is a recipient of prestigious individual awards from the Polish scientific community, the Ministry of Science and Education, the Polish Academy of Science, the Polish Association of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. Recently he received a Senior Award from the Fulbright Commission for his stay at USC.

    Speaker: Katherine Graham, President's Postdoctoral Fellow, Environmental Engineering, Georgia Tech

    Talk Title: Viruses in the urban water cycle: sources of pollution, fate, and public health decision-making

    Abstract: Coastal environments across the globe are treasured for their ability to provide sustenance, recreational activities, job opportunities, and diverse habitats for flora and fauna. They are also important human habitats: in the US, 94.7 million people live in a coastal county and worldwide approximately 44 percent of people live within 150 km of a coastline. However, due to population growth, pollution, and overuse of natural resources, many water resources in coastal areas are polluted. Sources of microbial pollution, including wastewater and urban runoff, can transport pathogens to waters where they pose public health risks. However, current indicators for fecal contamination in the environment, like fecal indicator bacteria (FIB), have been shown to poorly correlate with pathogens in the environment, complicating their use in certain settings. Thus a better understanding of the sources and fate of pathogens in the environment and solutions that sustainably reduce the impact of these sources on water resources is needed. At the same time, there are benefits to be gleaned from characterizing anthropogenic pollution sources, as they can be reflective of the infectious diseases circulating in a community. Therefore, tools to harness the information present in sewage should be developed in tandem with strategies to reduce the impact of pollution sources on the environment.
    In this seminar, I will first detail how viral pathogens in urban runoff are removed in green stormwater infrastructure to prevent impairments to surface waters and groundwater. Second, I will show how information on pathogens in wastewater can be used to inform public health decision-making, particularly during the COVID 19 pandemic. I will then discuss future teaching and research directions at the intersection of water, climate, and health issues, with the ultimate goal of providing safe and accessible water for all.


    Biography: Katherine (Katy) Graham is a President Postdoctoral Fellow at Georgia Tech in Environmental Engineering. Katy received her BSE in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2015 and completed her MS and PhD at Stanford University in 2021. She is broadly interested in the characterization of pathogens and microbial communities in the natural and built environments to inform public health risk assessment and decision-making. She collaborates with multidisciplinary scientists and engineers to understand how to sustainably mitigate sources of microbial pollution to the environment, the utilization of human waste to understand public health trends, and the use of genomic information on pathogens in the environment to inform advanced public health risk assessment models.
