    PhD Thesis Proposal - Sabyasachee Baruah

    Committee Members: Shrikanth Narayanan (Chair), Jonathan May, Kristina Lerman, Emilio Ferrara, and Morteza Dehghani

    Title: Character Resolution and Attribution for Narrative Understanding

    Abstract: Narrativity is a mechanism through which human beings try to understand the world. We computationally define it as characters interacting with each other during events that relate in time and space. We propose a computational pipeline for narrative understanding and discuss its character centric aspects, resolution and attribution of characters. We contribute computational models and novel datasets towards these tasks in both the textual and visual domain. We work towards scaling our methods to long and multimodal narratives, and analyze how they portray characters across different attribute types and time.

    Abstract:
    Successful deployment of any AI model requires generalization to previously unseen, real-world scenarios. Lack of generalization in models can lead to outcomes ranging from reduced performance to potential legal liabilities. In this thesis, I explore generalization challenges in large language models for code processing. I will discuss three different generalization concerns that language models for code processing can exhibit, and present my progress in building models that can overcome those. 1) I will start by discussing compositional generalization issues, where models must adapt to previously unseen instruction combinations 2) Next I will talk about out-of-domain generalization, and how distribution shifts within single projects or corporations can affect model performance, and how to overcome it. 3) Finally, I will talk about generalization of advanced models to programming languages with fewer resources.

    Title: Automated Repair of Layout Accessibility Issues in Mobile Applications

    Abstract: An increasing number of people are now dependent on mobile devices to access data and complete essential tasks. For people with disabilities, mobile apps that violate accessibility guidelines can prevent them from carrying out these activities. Layout accessibility issues are among the top accessibility issues in mobile applications. These issues impact the accessibility of mobile apps and make them difficult to use, especially for older people and people with disabilities. Unfortunately, existing techniques are limited in helping developers debug these issues. These techniques are only capable of detecting the issues but cannot help to repair them. Therefore, the repair of layout accessibility issues remains a manual process, which is both labor intensive and error prone.

    Automated repair of layout accessibility issues is complicated by several challenges. First, a repair must account for multiple issues holistically in order to preserve the relative consistency of the original app design. Second, due to the complex relationship between UI components, there is no clear way of identifying the set of elements and properties that need to be modified for a given issue. Third, assuming the relevant views and properties can be identified, the number of possible changes that need to be considered grows exponentially as more elements and properties need to be considered. Finally,
    a change in one element can create cascading changes that lead to further problems in other areas of the UI. Together, these challenges make a seemingly simple repair difficult to achieve. In this dissertation, I present an automated framework for repairing layout accessibility issues in mobile applications. To evaluate the effectiveness of this framework, I instantiated it to repair the different types of layout accessibility issues. I assessed the effectiveness of these instantiations by using them to repair issues detected in real world mobile apps. In addition, I conducted user studies to evaluate the impact of the repairs on the quality of the UIs of mobile apps. The results from these evaluations show that these techniques are effective in improving the accessibility of mobile apps without negatively impacting or distorting the UIs.

    Talk Title: Two Fundamental Relations for Turbulent Flows

    Abstract: wo fundamental effects of turbulence are (a) an increased rate at which kinetic energy is dissipated into heat and (b) an enhanced momentum (and heat) flux across boundary layers leading to much higher skin friction drag forces (and surface heat transfer). This presentation will introduce and apply two exact relations related to these fundamental effects, respectively. First, the concept of Stokes Flow Regularization (SFR) provides an exact expression for the scale-wise energy cascade rate in terms of vortex stretching and strain-rate self-amplification. Applied to data from fully-resolved simulations, this precisely quantifies the mechanisms responsible for generating large dissipation rates at small scales. SFR also serves as an intriguing alternative to spatial filtering as the basis of large-eddy simulation modeling. Specific potential modeling advantages will be discussed. Second, the Angular Momentum Integral (AMI) equation for turbulent boundary layers will be introduced. The AMI equation quantifies the impact of various flow phenomena throughout a boundary layer flow on the skin friction relative to a baseline laminar flow. An analogous integral equation for the surface heat transfer will also be introduced. Together, these provide a powerful method for probing flow data in terms of key engineering quantities of interest. Example applications for AMI-based analysis will be shown for boundary layer transition and supersonic turbulent boundary layers.

    Biography: Perry Johnson Perry Johnson earned his Ph.D. in 2017 from Johns Hopkins University (advisor: Charles Meneveau), where his work on velocity gradient dynamics in turbulence won the Corrsin-Kovasznay award. He was then a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford University for three years, working on various topics related to small-scale turbulence, multiphase & particle-laden flows, and boundary layers. He joined the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department at the University of California, Irvine in 2020 as an assistant professor. His recent research on the energy cascade was featured in Physics Today, and his forthcoming review of multi-scale velocity gradient dynamics will appear in the next issue of Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics.

    Talk Title: Large-scale data archives and analytic tools for neurological disorders

    Abstract: The Epilepsy Bioinformatics Study for Antiepileptogenic Therapy (EpiBioS4Rx) is a multi-site, international collaboration including a parallel study of humans and an animal model, collecting MRI, EEG, and blood samples. The development of epilepsy after traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a multifactorial process and crosses multiple modalities. Without a full understanding of the underlying biological effects, there are currently no cures for epilepsy. This study aims to address both issues, calling upon data generated and collected at sites spread worldwide among different laboratories, clinical sites, in different formats, and across multicenter preclinical trials. Before these data can even be analyzed, a central platform is needed to standardize these data and provide tools for searching, viewing, annotating, and analyzing them. We have built a centralized data archive that will allow the broader research community to access these shared data in addition to analytic tools to identify and validate biomarkers of epileptogenesis in imaging and electrophysiology as well as in molecular, serological, and tissue data. Besides EpiBioS4Rx, we have also developed other large-scale multimodal data archives, including the Data Archive for the BRAIN Initiative (DABI) and the COVID-19 Data Archive (COVID-ARC) to encourage collaboration and expedite research in these areas.



    Biography: Dominique Duncan is an assistant professor of Neurology, Neuroscience, and Biomedical Engineering at the USC Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute in the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI) at the University of Southern California. Dr. Duncan\'s background spans mathematics, engineering, and neuroscience. She received her PhD at Yale University in Electrical Engineering where she analyzed intracranial EEG data using nonlinear factor analysis to identify preseizure states of epilepsy patients. Dr. Duncan is funded through both the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). She has built international, multidisciplinary collaborations and developed novel analytic tools to analyze multimodal data, including imaging and electrophysiology, particularly in the areas of traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, and COVID-19. By creating large-scale data repositories and linking them with analytic, visualization, and quality control tools for multimodal data, her work aims to encourage collaboration across multiple fields.

    Speaker: Subhanshu Gupta, Washington State University

    Talk Title: Redefining Scalable Arrays using Bandwidth, Aperture, and Temperature for Next-Generation Wireless Networks

    Series: Integrated Systems

    Abstract: Emerging millimeter-wave and sub-THz communications promises to address the bandwidth limitations faced at sub-6GHz bands. Communications at this higher frequency however requires multiple antennas to compensate for propagation loss resulting in pointed beams. Conditional on the link being established, these beams provide wide bandwidths. However, these links can be short-lived for users with high mobility necessitating energy-efficiency and low-latency direction-finding approaches. These challenges necessitate rethink of multi-antenna radio front-ends for them to not only synergistically work with the digital signal processor but also satisfy new features meeting the energy- and spectral-efficiencies.
    This talk will present recent research in true-time-delay based spatial signal processors to enable fast direction finding as well as wideband data communications for mobile communication applicable to sub-6GHz and millimeter-wave frequencies. Leveraging nanoseconds of delay ranges with picosecond resolutions, we describe true-time-delay based phased arrays capable of handling wide fractional bandwidths and enabling fast link discovery while maximizing the spectral- and energy-efficiencies. Pursuant to this, we will elaborate on interference-mitigation techniques in congested and contested networks that are critical for high energy- and spectral efficiencies. We will conclude this talk highlighting ongoing research on optimization of joint communications and wideband sensing, and temperature-scalable arrays that can potentially transform emerging wireless and space communications harnessing conjoined operations at room- and ultra-low-temperatures.

    Biography: Subhanshu Gupta received his Ph.D. from the University of Washington in 2010. Before joining the electrical engineering and computer science at Washington State University as an Assistant Professor in 2015, he worked in the radio frequency group at MaxLinear Inc. from 2011 to 2014. He is currently an Associate Professor at WSU.

    Subhanshu serves on the editorial boards for IEEE TCAS-1 (2019-present) and IEEE RFIC TPC since 2021. He has also been a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2019, Cisco Faculty Award in 2017, and Defense Research Instrumentation Awards (DURIP) in 2020. His research interests lie in wideband energy-efficient next-generation wireless / wired communications, stochastic optimization, and temperature-scalable electronics.
