  • CAIS Seminar: Rediet Abebe (University of California, Berkeley) – Modeling the Impact of Shocks on Poverty

    Wed, Oct 21, 2020 @ 01:00 AM - 02:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Rediet Abebe, University of California, Berkeley

    Talk Title: Modeling the Impact of Shocks on Poverty

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

    Abstract: Poverty is a multifaceted and dynamic phenomena impacting billions of people worldwide. Despite its prevalence, there remains much to be understood about what makes families susceptible to experiencing economic distress. In recent years, income shocks -- which constitute unexpected expenses or interruptions to one's income flow -- have garnered increased public attention as being intricately intertwined with poverty. Despite a vast body of empirical work showing the impact of shocks on welfare, they do not play a correspondingly central role in the design of assistance programs.

    In this talk, we present a mathematical and computational analysis of shocks. We pose a set of algorithmic questions about allocation of subsidies in the presence of shocks and present optimal and near-optimal solutions for various general settings. We computationally analyze the impact of shocks on poverty using a longitudinal, survey-based dataset, revealing insights about the interactions of different types of shocks. We discuss how these insights can inform the design and deployment of assistance programs and highlight new directions at this emerging interface between algorithms, public finance, and social work.

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jorge Ortiz, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Rutgers University

    Talk Title: Human-Centered Intelligent Sensing Systems

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

    Abstract: This talk is about the design of systems and algorithms for sensing systems that interact directly with humans. I will discuss our work in the Cyber Physical Intelligence lab (CyPhy-Lab) at Rutgers University where we study sensing systems that learn about human behavior, from human feedback, and with humans to improve system objectives and enhance people's lives. I will describe three on-going projects that explore these themes more precisely. First I will describe PillSense, a smart pillbox system for medication adherence. This system helps us learn about how humans take their medication and how physical design is tightly coupled to the system's ability to identify users effectively. We describe two pill box designs and associated algorithms to address the challenges posed. Then, I will discuss our on-going project Maestro, a system that learns from humans to fill the semantic gap between sensor measurements and their interpretation, in order to facilitate the construction of smart ambient-sensing applications in buildings. Finally, I will discuss project Paz, a system that attempts to learn when to interact with humans as we work to facilitate agent-human collaboration to both attain system objectives (i.e. efficiency) and enhance human productivity, comfort, and entertainment.

    Biography: Jorge Ortiz is an Assistant Professor at Rutgers University where he directs the Cyber-Physical Intelligence Lab (CyPhy-Lab) and is where he is also a member of the Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB). His work focuses on building and studying sensing systems that learn about human behavior, from human feedback, and with humans to improve system objectives and enhance people's lives. These include a broad range of sensing systems including smart objects, smart built environments, and smart cities, more broadly. Prior to joining Rutgers in 2018, he was a Research Staff Member at IBM Research working on machine learning and the internet of things. In the five years he was at IBM, he attained 12 patents and published in multiple top academic conferences, journals, and books and was awarded 'Best Poster' at IEEE/ACM IPSN '08, two 'Best Paper Runner-ups' at Buildsys '15, 'Best Paper' at ICISSP '18, and 'Best Paper Runner-up' at IoTDI '19. At IBM he led teams to commercialize two major research projects and bring them to market. Dr. Ortiz also has extensive industry experience, which includes several years at Oracle Corporation and has worked at and led multiple startups. He is currently serving as co-TPC chair for Buildsys 2020. Dr. Ortiz attained his Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley in 2013, M.S. in Computer Science from Berkeley in 2010, and a BS in Computer Science from MIT in 2003.

    Wed, Oct 21, 2020 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Mitul Luhar, USC

    Talk Title: Tunable Porous and Patterned Surfaces for Turbulence Control

    Abstract: Control of wall-bounded turbulent flows has been an important area of research for several decades. However, the development of effective control techniques has been hindered by the limited availability of computationally tractable models that can guide design and optimization. This talk describes extensions of the resolvent analysis formalism that seek to address this limitation. Under the resolvent formulation, the turbulent velocity field is expressed as a superposition of propagating modes (resolvent modes) identified via a gain-based decomposition of the Navier-Stokes equations. Control is introduced into this framework via changes to the boundary conditions or through additional forcing terms in the governing equations. These changes alter the structure and gain of resolvent modes, whereby a reduction in gain is shown to be indicative of mode suppression and drag reduction. This modeling framework reproduces previous observations for passive control techniques such as sharkskin-inspired riblets, compliant walls, and anisotropic porous materials with minimal computation. Ongoing work builds on these observations to develop optimization routines for riblet shape and to design, fabricate, and test porous materials that can passively control turbulent flows

    Biography: Mitul Luhar joined the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at USC as Assistant Professor in January 2015 and was appointed as the Henry Salvatori Early Career Chair in 2020. He has received the AFOSR Young Investigator Program award as well as the NSF Career award. Prior to joining USC, Mitul was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at Caltech. He earned his Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from MIT in 2012, and his B.A. and M.Eng. degrees in Engineering from Cambridge University in 2007.

  • Advanced Manufacturing Seminar Series

    Fri, Oct 23, 2020 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Jian Cao, Northwestern University

    Talk Title: Manufacturing -“ An Integration Platform

    Abstract: Manufacturing translates ideas, innovation and raw materials into products used by societies as a driving force for raising their living standards. To enhance the versatility of manufacturing processes and to fully integrate design and manufacturing for system optimization, research efforts at NIMSI are rooted in
    discovering new processes for flexible, personalized and secure manufacturing, and in enhancing system optimization by using the combination of the ICME (integrated computational materials engineering) and datadriven approaches. This talk will provide an overview of these activities and then focus on selected processes
    and their fundamentals, and techniques including machine learning to achieve better process outcomes and faster predictions compared to conventional methods. The processes to be highlighted include rapid dieless sheet forming for producing three-dimensional sheet parts without geometry-specific tooling, and metal-based powder-blown additive manufacturing.

    Biography: Dr. Cao (MIT 95, MIT 92, SJTU 89) is the Cardiss Collins Professor, Director of Northwestern Initiative for Manufacturing Science and Innovation, and an Associate Vice President for Research (AVPR) at Northwestern University. She served
    at the National Science Foundation as a program director for two years. Professor Cao is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), ASME, SME, and of the International Academy for Production Engineering
    (CIRP). Her major awards include the ASME Milton C. Shaw Manufacturing Research Medal (2020), SME Gold Medal (2020), Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship from DoD (2019), Charles Russ Richards Memorial Award (2017) from ASME and Pi Tau
    Sigma, SME Frederick W. Taylor Research Medal (2016), ASME Blackall Machine Tool and Gage Award (2012, 2018), ASME Young Investigator Award (2006) from Applied Mechanics Division, and the NSF CAREER Award. Prof. Cao is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Materials Processing Technology. She
    served as President of the SME North America Manufacturing Research Institute, and Chair of ASME Manufacturing Engineering Division. She is a recipient of the ASME Dedicated Service Award (2011). As an AVPR, Prof. Cao fosters the collaboration between disciplines across and beyond Northwestern. She is a Board
    member of mHUB, Chicago's first innovation center focused on physical product development and manufacturing.

    Talk Title: We Are Ready for the New Normal of Higher Education

    Abstract: The term 'new normal' has become a ubiquitous catchphrase that has come into our lexicon in various professions since the Covid-19 pandemic. As universities prepare for the new normal, online learning has become an indispensable part of higher education in the pandemic and post-pandemic era. Although students and their families may lament the loss of social life on campus, there is no need to dread online education. If we can adapt new technology and pedagogy to bring remote students together for meaningful interaction, online learning will not become isolated learning, but instead, a transformational opportunity to nurture a more resilient and tolerant generation during times of global crisis and social unrest.

    Please join us on October 23 at 12:00 pm PST for this webinar and live Q&A presentation.
