  • Medical Imaging Seminar

    Mon, Jun 17, 2019 @ 05:15 PM - 06:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Frank Ong , Stanford University

    Talk Title: Extreme MRI: Reconstructing Hundred-Gigabyte Volumetric Dynamic MRI from Non-Gated Acquisitions

    Series: Medical Imaging Seminar Series

    Abstract: In this talk, I will present techniques to reconstruct 3D dynamic MRI of ~100 GBs from continuous non-gated acquisitions. The problem considered is vastly undetermined and demanding of computation and memory. I will introduce a multi scale low rank matrix model to compactly represent dynamic image sequence. This enables compressed storage, which in combination with a stochastic optimization approach, renders the reconstruction of 100s of GBs of images feasible. The proposed method is applied to dynamic contrast enhanced MRI and free breathing lung MRI, with reconstruction resolution of near millimeter spatially, and sub-second temporally. The attached animated gif shows a 3D rendered result from this talk.

    (Joint work with Xucheng Zhu, Joseph Cheng, Peder Larson, Shreyas Vasanawala, and Michael Lustig)

    Biography: Frank Ong is a post-doctoral researcher at Stanford University, working with Prof. Shreyas Vasanawala and Prof. John Pauly. His research focuses on computational imaging methods in medical imaging, particularly in MRI. He received his PhD degree from UC Berkeley in Fall 2018 with Prof. Michael Lustig.

  • Data Engineering Infosession

    Tue, Jun 18, 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Workshops & Infosessions


    CS@USC Alum Sriram Baskaran will be visiting USC and presenting on how to efficiently make the leap into data engineering.

    Sriram, a USC Alum, Program Director, Data Engineer, currently working at Insight Data Science, will discuss the growing demand for Data Scientist and Data Engineers at companies across the US, and some tips and strategies for how to make the transition from academia into industry. He will also go over a case study discussing big data challenges and how teams are building solutions to tackle them.

    Sriram will quickly give an overview of the tuition-free Insight Data Fellows Program, their programs addressing Data Science, Data Engineering, DevOps Engineering, Health Data, Artificial Intelligence and Security and how it helps undergraduate, graduate students and postdocs bridge the gap between academia and industry.

    Location: Henry Salvatori Computer Science Center (SAL) - 101

  • NL Seminar-Multimodal Communication: A Discourse Approach

    Fri, Jun 21, 2019 @ 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Malihe Alikhani, Rutgers University

    Talk Title: Multimodal Communication: A Discourse Approach

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: The integration of textual and visual information is fundamental to the way people communicate. My hypothesis is that despite the differences of the visual and linguistic communication, the two have similar intentional, inferential and contextual properties, which can be modeled with similar representations and algorithms. I present three successful case studies where natural language techniques provide a useful foundation for supporting user engagement with visual communication. Finally, I propose using these findings for designing interactive systems that can communicate with people using a broad range of appropriate modalities.



    Biography: Malihe Alikhani is a 4th year Ph.D. student in the department of computer science at Rutgers University, advised by Prof. Matthew Stone. She is pursuing a certificate in cognitive science through the Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science and holds a BA and MA in mathematics. Her research aims at teaching machines to understand and generate multimodal communication. She is the recipient of the fellowship award for excellence in computation and data sciences from Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute in 2018.
