  • CS Colloquium: Jason Lee (USC, Data Sciences and Operations)On the Foundations of Deep Learning: SGD, Overparametrization, and Generalization

    Speaker: Jason Lee, USC, Data Sciences and Operations

    Talk Title: On the Foundations of Deep Learning: SGD, Overparametrization, and Generalization

    Series: CS Colloquium

    Abstract: We provide new results on the effectiveness of SGD and overparametrization in deep learning.

    a) SGD: We show that SGD converges to stationary points for general nonsmooth , nonconvex functions, and that stochastic subgradients can be efficiently computed via Automatic Differentiation. For smooth functions, we show that gradient descent, coordinate descent, ADMM, and many other algorithms, avoid saddle points and converge to local minimizers. For a large family of problems including matrix completion and shallow ReLU networks, this guarantees that gradient descent converges to a global minimum.

    b) Overparametrization: We show that gradient descent finds global minimizers of the training loss of overparametrized deep networks in polynomial time.

    c) Generalization:
    For general neural networks, we establish a margin-based theory. The minimizer of the cross-entropy loss with weak regularization is a max-margin predictor, and enjoys stronger generalization guarantees as the amount of overparametrization increases.

    d) Algorithmic and Implicit Regularization: We analyze the implicit regularization effects of various optimization algorithms on overparametrized networks. In particular we prove that for least squares with mirror descent, the algorithm converges to the closest solution in terms of the bregman divergence. For linearly separable classification problems, we prove that the steepest descent with respect to a norm solves SVM with respect to the same norm. For over-parametrized non-convex problems such as matrix sensing or neural net with quadratic activation, we prove that gradient descent converges to the minimum nuclear norm solution, which allows for both meaningful optimization and generalization guarantees

    Title: Towards Socially Assistive Robot Support Methods for Physical Activity Behavior Change
    PhD Candidate: Katelyn Swift-Spong
    Date, Time, and Location: Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 1:30pm in RTH 406
    Committee: Prof. Maja Matarić (chair), Prof. Stefanos Nikolaidis, and Prof. Elizabeth Zelinski

    Abstract:
    Socially Assistive Robot (SAR) systems have the potential to support the complex process of human behavior change by providing social support such as feedback and encouragement at opportune times. This dissertation presents a framework for SAR behavior change support in the context of physical activity behavior. This framework is designed around the goal of creating lasting behavior change that extends past the SAR interaction. Within this framework, the robot is equipped with one or more SAR physical activity behavior change support methods designed to affect a specific mechanism of behavior change.

    This dissertation develops the design of SAR feedback, backstory, and messaging support methods for physical activity behavior change. These three methods were each designed to support a different mechanism of achieving behavior change by leveraging the robot's relational and support capabilities. Feedback was designed to support a user's beliefs about their ability to perform a physical activity task. Robot backstory was designed to increase the robot's ability to provide social support, and messaging was designed to increase the user's positive feelings towards the physical activity. These three support methods are evaluated in real-world physical activity domains with a fully autonomous SAR system. The feedback support method is evaluated in the domain of post-stroke rehabilitation, and the backstory and messaging support methods are evaluated in the domain of adolescent exercise.

    Reminder and social reward decision making is also developed as a SAR physical activity behavior change support method using a model of SAR habit formation support. This model formalizes the SAR sequential decision making task of determining when to give reminders and social rewards towards the goal of supporting the formation of a new desired habit. Habits are formed when the occurrence of a cue is followed by a desired behavior, and that combination is reinforced repeatedly over time. The model of habit formation support enables a robot to intervene in this process. This model is evaluated in the domain of reducing older adult sedentary behavior through a two-week in-home SAR intervention. The robot was able to generate a high level of reminder adherence in this setting.

    In this work, four SAR physical activity behavior change support methods were developed and evaluated in three different physical activity domains with fully autonomous SAR systems. This dissertation contributes to understanding the methods a robot could use to support behavior change in a variety of physical activity domains both in situ within the context of the behavior in everyday life and outside of that context.

    Wed, Feb 20, 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Kazuhiro Saitou, University of Michigan

    Talk Title: Manufacturability-Driven, Multi-Component Topology Optimization (MTO) for Top-Down Design of Structural Assemblies

    Abstract: This talk presents a manufacturability-driven, multi-component topology optimization (MTO) framework for simultaneous design and partitioning of structures assembled of multiple components. Constraints on component geometry imposed by chosen manufacturing processes are incorporated in the conventional density-based topology optimization, with additional design variables specifying fractional component membership which enables continuous relaxation of otherwise discrete partitioning problems. The geometric constraints imposed by various manufacturing processes, such as size, perimeter length, undercut, and enclosed cavities, are also relaxed to enable the manufacturability evaluation of gray geometries that occur during the density-based topology optimization. Examples on minimum compliance structural assembly design for sheet metal stamping (MTO-S), die casting (MTO-D), additive manufacturing (MTO-A), and tailored-fiber composite process (MTO-C) show promising advantages over the conventional monolithic topology optimization. In particular, manufacturing constraints previously applied to monolithic topology optimization gain new interpretations when applied to multi-component assemblies, which can unlock richer design space for topology exploration. The talk will conclude with a brief overview of the latest developments on the MTO framework for continuous fiber printing processes and for 4D printing processes.

    Speaker: Farshad Lahouti, California Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: Learning from Oracle or Crowd: Budget fidelity trade-offs and query design strategies

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

    Abstract: Design of many machine learning systems rely on well-curated datasets. Developing such datasets is an expensive and time-consuming process. Digital crowdsourcing (CS) is a modern approach to infer this from small contributions of a large and potentially non-expert crowd. In this talk, the CS problem, as a human-in-the-loop computation problem, is modeled and analyzed in an information theoretic rate-distortion framework. The purpose is to identify the ultimate fidelity that one can achieve by any form of query from the crowd and any inference algorithm with a given budget. This in turn motivates the design of coded query schemes. Strategies are presented for efficient and reliable query design in presence of a crowd or an oracle. The query rate performance and speed of learning are analyzed and the role of pricing is investigated. Joint work with Victoria Kostina and Babak Hassibi.

    Biography: Farshad Lahouti received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Waterloo, Canada, in 2002. In 2005, he joined the faculty of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Tehran, where he founded the Center for Wireless Multimedia Communications. Dr Lahouti received the distinguished scientist award from Iran National Academy of Sciences in 2014. He joined the electrical engineering department at Caltech as a visiting faculty in 2013, where he initiated the digital ventures design program.

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Wael AbdAlmageed, USC-ISI

    Talk Title: AI, Biometrics and Computer Vision @ VISTA

    Abstract: In this talk, I will describe various ongoing research activities at computer vision group at USC Information Sciences Institute that span core machine learning and artificial intelligence, biometrics, image integrity assessment and fake news detection. In terms of core machine learning, I will present a novel representation (i.e. feature) learning framework for neural networks, called unsupervised adversarial invariance, which learns a split representation of data through competitive learning between a classification task and a reconstruction task coupled with information disentanglement, without needing any labeled information about confounding factors or domain knowledge. Second, in biometrics, I will present the design of a novel biometrics sensor suite that provides rich data for presentation attack detection (i.e. anti-spoofing) for face, iris and fingerprint biometrics. I will also present a deep neural network approach for presentation attack detection using limited amounts of data obtained from the new sensor suite. Finally, I will present two new approaches for assessing the integrity of multimedia assets. The first approach is called BusterNet, in which I will describe a novel convolutional neural network architecture for detection and localization of copy-move image forgeries. The second approach uses joint multimodal embedding to assess the integrity of multimedia packages undergoing semantic manipulations. I will conclude my talk with directions and plans for future research.

    Biography: Dr. Wael AbdAlmageed is a Research Team Leader and Supervising Computer Scientist at the USC Information Sciences Institute (USC ISI). He is the Co-Director of the Center for Video, Image, Speech and Text Analytics (VISTA). He is an expert in computer vision, biometrics and machine learning. His research focus is on developing and applying artificial intelligence techniques to vision, bioinformatics and data analytics problems. His research interests also include mapping machine learning and computer vision algorithms to modern high performance computing platforms.

    Wed, Feb 20, 2019 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Kristina Lerman, University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute

    Talk Title: Friendship Paradox and Information Bias in Networks

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

    Abstract: Individuals' decisions, from what product to buy to who to vote for, often depend on what others are doing. People, however, rarely have global information about others, but must estimate it from the local observations they make of their friends. Dr. Lerman discusses the counter-intuitive phenomena by which the structure of social networks significantly distorts the observations people make of their friends. The effects include the "friendship paradox," which states that your friends have more friends than you do, on average, and its many more surprising generalizations. As a result of these paradoxes, a trait that is globally rare may be dramatically over-represented in the local neighborhoods of many people. Friendship paradoxes may lead individuals to systematically overestimate the prevalence of a minority opinion or behavior, and may accelerate the spread of social contagions and adoption of social norms.

  • CS Colloquium: Marco Gaboardi (University at Buffalo, SUNY) Differential Privacy: Formal Verification and Applications

    Thu, Feb 21, 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Marco Gaboardi, University at Buffalo, SUNY

    Talk Title: Differential Privacy: Formal Verification and Applications

    Series: CS Colloquium

    Abstract: A vast amount of individuals' data is collected, stored and accessed every day. These data are valuable for scientific and medical research, for decision making, etc. However, use or release of these data may be restricted by concerns for the privacy of the individuals contributing them.
    Differential Privacy has been conceived to offer ways to answer statistical queries about sensitive data while providing strong provable privacy guarantees ensuring that the presence or absence of a single individual in the data has a negligible statistical effect on the query's result. In this talk I will present some formal verification techniques we developed to help programmers to certify their programs differentially private and to guarantee that their programs provide accurate answers. These techniques combine approaches based on type systems and program logics with ideas for reasoning about differential privacy using composition, sensitivity and probabilistic coupling. This combination permits fine-grained formal analyses of several basic mechanisms that are fundamental for designing practical differential privacy applications. In addition, I will present some of our results showing how to answer a large number of queries on high dimensional datasets preserving privacy, and how to perform differentially private chi-squared hypothesis testing with the same asymptotic guarantees as the traditional tests.
