    Speaker: Meisam Razaviyayn, University of Southern California

    Talk Title: Finding a Local Optimum of a Constrained Non-Convex Optimization and its Connections to Global Optimality

    Abstract: When is solving a non-convex optimization problem easy? Despite significant research efforts to answer this question, most existing results are problem specific and cannot be applied even with simple changes in the objective function. In this talk, we provide theoretical insights to this question by answering two related questions: 1) Are all local optima of a given optimization problem globally optimal? 2) When can we compute a local optimum of a given non-convex constrained optimization problem efficiently? In the first part of the talk, motivated by the non-convex training problem of deep neural networks, we provide simple sufficient conditions under which any local optimum of a given highly composite optimization problem is globally optimal. Unlike many existing results in the literature, our sufficient condition applies to many non-convex optimization problems such as training problem of non-convex multi-linear neural networks and non-linear neural networks with pyramidal structures.

    In the second part of the talk, we consider the problem of finding a local optimum of a constrained non-convex optimization problem under strict saddle point property. We show that, unlike the unconstrained scenario, the vanilla projected gradient descent algorithm fails to escape saddle points even in the presence of a single linear constraint. We then propose a trust region algorithm which converges to second order stationary points for optimization problems with small number of linear constraints. Our algorithm is the first optimization procedure, with polynomial per-iteration complexity, which converges to $\epsilon$-first order stationary points of a non-manifold constrained optimization problem in $O(\epsilon^{-3/2})$ iterations, and at the same time can escape saddle points under strict saddle property.

    This is a joint work with Maher Nouiehed.

    Biography: Meisam Razaviyayn is an assistant professor at the department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Southern California. Prior to joining USC, he was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University working with Professor David Tse. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering with minor in Computer Science at the University of Minnesota under the supervision of Professor Tom Luo. He obtained his MS degree in Mathematics under the supervision of Professor Gennady Lyubeznik. Meisam Razaviyayn is the recipient of the Signal Processing Society Young Author Best Paper Award in 2014 and the finalist for Best Paper Prize for Young Researcher in Continuous Optimization in 2013 and 2016.

  • INCOSE, LA Chapter Speaker Meeting

    Tue, Sep 11, 2018 @ 06:30 PM - 07:30 PM

    Systems Architecting and Engineering, USC Viterbi School of Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: William Good, Vice President, The Cameron Group

    Talk Title: Lessons from 9/11 in the Context of the INCOSE CSEP (SEBOK) and PMI PMP Exams (PMBOK)

    Series: INCOSE-LA Speaker Series

    Abstract: On the 17th anniversary of 9/11, it is prudent to review the contributions that systems engineering and project management should be making towards the prevention of unconventional terrorist attacks using any of the many weapons of mass destruction (WMD) that could be deployed against America and/or other industrialized nations. We know that systems engineering and project management are extremely useful in the world of conventional weapons and funded government programs. What about unconventional methods like those used on 9/11? This presentation will review the application of systems engineering and project management principles to mitigate the risk of unconventional terrorist WMD attacks.

    Biography: William Good began his career as a pilot serving with the United States Marine Corps in Vietnam. After one combat tour followed by flight instructor and project officer duties, he left the Marine Corps to work as a systems engineer in the development program (aka SED) at EDS. While working on the Comprehensive Brokerage System (CBS) programming back office software for Wall Street, he completed an MBA in operations research at NYU. His subsequent career that covers many skill sets and industries included flying commercially for several airlines and surviving seven airline employer bankruptcies. His career illustrates the art of planning ahead and putting risk mitigation in place to manage the unexpected. In 2015, he left his position as an asset manager in warfighter support, integration, and training at the Missile Defense Integration and Operations Center (MDIOC) at Schriever AFB in Colorado Springs. Since then he has worked with The Cameron Group as a program manager and was promoted to the position of Senior Vice President more than a year ago. In this capacity, he is shepherding the Vehicle-Based Threat Detection System (VBTDS) through the process of full development and deployment across multiple non-government vehicle types within the private sector.

    One unique aspect of his educational background is that he taken more than 400 semester hours of coursework for credit and he has taught more than 400 semester hours of both undergraduate and graduate coursework. He earned 13 certifications from the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) while working for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA).

  • CAIS Seminar: Bryan Wilder (USC) - Algorithmic Social Intervention

    Wed, Sep 12, 2018 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Bryan Wilder, USC

    Talk Title: Algorithmic Social Interventions

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

    Abstract: Social and behavioral interventions are a critical tool for governments and communities to tackle deep-rooted societal challenges such as homelessness, disease, and poverty. However, real-world interventions are almost always plagued by limited resources and limited data, which creates a computational challenge: how can we use algorithmic techniques to enhance the targeting and delivery of social and behavioral interventions? This talk focuses on problems in combinatorial optimization and machine learning which underlie this question. I will discuss robust optimization, information gathering, and decision-driven learning as tools for decision making under uncertainty, as well as applications of these ideas in public health settings such as HIV prevention among homeless youth.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium


    Biography: Bryan Wilder is a PhD student in computer science at the University of Southern California, where he is advised by Milind Tambe. His research focuses on combinatorial optimization and machine learning, driven by applications to social issues such as public health. He is supported by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, and his work has been recognized with best paper and best student paper nominations at AAMAS.

    Speaker: Daniel Fried, UC Berkeley

    Talk Title: Pragmatic Models for Generating and Following Grounded Instructions

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: To generate language, we model what to say, why not also model how listeners will react? We show how pragmatic inference can be used to both generate and interpret natural language instructions for complex, sequential tasks. Our pragmaticsenabled models reason about how listeners will react upon hearing instructions, and reason counterfactually about why speakers produced the instructions they did. We find that this inference procedure improves state of the art listener models at correctly interpreting human instructions and speaker models at generating instructions correctly interpreted by humans in diverse settings, including navigating through real-world indoor environments.



    Biography: Daniel Fried is a PhD student at UC Berkeley, working with Dan Klein on grounded semantics and structured prediction in natural language processing. Previously, he received a BS from the University of Arizona and an MPhil from the University of Cambridge. His work has been supported by a Churchill Scholarship, NDSEG Fellowship, Huawei / Berkeley AI Fellowship, and Tencent Fellowship.
