    Wed, Oct 27, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Paul Ronney, USC

    Talk Title: Releasing Insights from Data: Quarrying vs. Sculpting

    Abstract: When Michelangelo surveyed a block of marble he saw a figure trapped inside; his goal was to release the figure that in his mind was already there. Research involves not only quarrying (obtaining) blocks of experimental, computational or theoretical data but more importantly releasing the insights trapped within. For example, every student of physics learns about the H atom spectrum - but why this block of data? Because, trapped within the spectrum is a critical, unequivocal insight - that energy levels of matter are quantized.
    In that famous example the insight and its significance are obvious given the benefit of years of hindsight - but what important insights are trapped inside freshly-quarried data? The focus of this presentation is on examples of and methods for sculpting data into works of insight. Starting with the aforementioned case study and others the audiences sculpting skill will be challenged with case studies from both the presenters own work (some not yet published) and elsewhere, with an emphasis on examples where the insights were both difficult to sculpt and led to counterintuitive insights.


    Biography: Paul Ronney is a Professor in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA. Prof. Ronney received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, a Master of Science degree in Aeronautics from the California Institute of Technology, and a Doctor of Science degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He held postdoctoral appointments at the NASA Lewis (now Glenn) Research Center and the Laboratory for Computational Physics at the U. S. Naval Research Laboratory and a position as Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University before assuming his current position at USC. Prof. Ronney was the Payload Specialist Astronaut (Alternate) for Space Shuttle mission MSL-1 (STS-83, April 4 - 8, 1997) and the reflight of this mission (STS-94, July 1 - 16, 1997).

    Professor Ronney has extensive research experience in small-scale combustion and power generation, turbulent combustion, flame ignition by transient plasma discharges, micro-scale combustion, bioengineering (robotic insect propulsion), edge flames, flame propagation in confined geometries (Hele-Shaw cells), internal combustion engines, premixed-gas combustion at microgravity and flame spread over solid fuel beds. One of his experiments, a study of premixed-gas flames at low gravity, flew on three Space Shuttle missions.

    Prof. Ronney has published over 80 technical papers in peer-reviewed journals, made over 250 technical presentations (including over 35 invited presentations at international conferences), holds 7 U.S. patents, and has received over $12 million in funding for his research projects. In recognition of his achievements, he is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Combustion Institute, an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and is a recipient of the National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award. He has received the Distinguished Paper Award from the Combustion Institute (for a work published in the Proceedings of the Combustion Institute, Vol. 37) and the Starley Premium Award of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (for the best paper of the year published in the Journal of Automobile Engineering.)

    Wed, Oct 27, 2021 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Xenofon Koutsoukos, Department of Computer Science at Vanderbilt University

    Talk Title: Resilient Distributed Consensus, Optimization, and Learning in Networked Cyber-Physical Systems

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

    Abstract: Distributed consensus, optimization, and learning algorithms are increasingly used in networked cyber-physical systems but they are prone to Byzantine attacks. In this talk, we will present distributed algorithms for resilient aggregation in high-dimensional problems. The first approach is based on the notion of centerpoint, which is an extension of the median in higher dimensions. Centerpoint is used in a resilient distributed stochastic gradient descent algorithm in a cooperative network and evaluated using examples of target pursuit in multi-robot systems. The second approach is based on adaptive weight assignment and is used for resilient distributed multi-task learning and distributed reinforcement learning. Our results show better learning performance than the non-cooperative case and resilience in the presence of Byzantine agents.

    Biography: Xenofon Koutsoukos is the Chair of the Department of Computer Science at Vanderbilt University. He is a Professor of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Electrical Engineering and a Senior Research Scientist with the Institute for Software Integrated Systems. His research is in the area of cyber-physical systems with emphasis on learning-enabled systems, security and resilience, control and decision-making, diagnosis and fault tolerance, formal methods, and adaptive resource management. Prof. Koutsoukos was the recipient of the NSF Career Award in 2004, the Excellence in Teaching Award in 2009 from the Vanderbilt University School of Engineering, and the 2011 NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) Associate Administrator (AA) Award in Technology and Innovation. He is a Fellow of the IEEE.

  • Nikhil Garg (Cornell University) - Combatting Gerrymandering with Social Choice: the Design of Multi-member Districts

    Thu, Oct 28, 2021 @ 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Nikhil Garg, Cornell University

    Talk Title: Combatting Gerrymandering with Social Choice: the Design of Multi-member Districts

    Abstract: Every representative democracy must specify a mechanism under which voters choose their representatives. The most common mechanism in the United States -- winner-take-all single-member districts -- both enables substantial partisan gerrymandering and constrains `fair' redistricting, preventing proportional representation in legislatures. We study the design of multi-member districts (MMDs), in which each district elects multiple representatives, potentially through a non-winner-takes-all voting rule. We carry out large-scale analyses for the U.S. House of Representatives under MMDs with different social choice functions, under algorithmically generated maps optimized for either partisan benefit or proportionality. Doing so requires efficiently incorporating predicted partisan outcomes -- under various multi-winner social choice functions -- into an algorithm that optimizes over an ensemble of maps. We find that with three-member districts using Single Transferable Vote, fairness-minded independent commissions would be able to achieve proportional outcomes in every state up to rounding, and advantage-seeking partisans would have their power to gerrymander significantly curtailed. Simultaneously, such districts would preserve geographic cohesion, an arguably important aspect of representative democracies. In the process, we open up a rich research agenda at the intersection of social choice and computational redistricting.


    Biography: Nikhil Garg is an Assistant Professor of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell Tech as part of the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute. His research interest is the application of algorithms, data science, and mechanism design to the study of democracy, markets, and societal systems at large. He received his PhD from Stanford University, where he was part of the Society and Algorithms Lab and Stanford Crowdsourced Democracy Team. He has spent time at Uber, NASA, and Microsoft, and most recently was the Principal Data Scientist at PredictWise, which provides election analytics for political campaigns. Nikhil has received the INFORMS George Dantzig Dissertation Award, an honorable mention for the ACM SIGecom dissertation award, and 2nd place in the MSOM student paper competition.

  • Advanced Manufacturing Seminar

    Thu, Oct 28, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Charlie C. L. Wang, University of Manchester

    Talk Title: Multi-Axis Additive Manufacturing: Support-Free, Mechanical Strength and Motion Planning

    Abstract: In this talk, I will present our recent work related to multi-axis additive manufacturing (i.e., MAAM). Although called 3D printing, the processing of material accumulation in most commercial AM systems is however taken in a 2.5D manner, which leads to two major problems - 1) supporting structures are needed below regions with large overhang and 2) weak mechanical strength between layers of accumulated materials. Both challenges are tackled in our work by incorporating multi-axis motion into the material deposition process. Printing along real 3D tool-paths is conducted. Automatic tool-path planning for multi-axis 3D printing is based on two successive decompositions, first volume-to-surfaces and then surfaces-to-curves. Two computational pipelines will be introduced, where the first one is based on voxel representation for support-free 3D printing and the second paradigm is based on vector-field computation for reinforcing the mechanical strength of 3D printed models. Lastly, I will present methods for effectively planning the motion trajectory of robots in these manufacturing tasks, the tool-paths of which are usually complex and have a large number of discrete-time constraints as waypoints.

    Biography:
    Prof. Charlie C. L. Wang currently holds a Chair of Smart Manufacturing with the University of Manchester. Prior to this, he was a Chair of Advanced Manufacturing at Delft University of Technology and a Professor of Mechanical and Automation Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He also worked as a visiting professor at University of Southern California during sabbatical leave in 2011. Prof. Wang received a few awards from professional societies including the ASME CIE Excellence in Research Award (2016), the ISSMO/Springer Prize (2019), the Best Paper Award (2nd Place) of Solid and Physical Modeling (2019), the NAMRI/SME Outstanding Paper Award (2013), the Best Paper Awards of ASME CIE Conferences (twice in 2008 and 2001 respectively), the Prakash Krishnaswami CAPPD Best Paper Award of ASME CIE Conference (2011), and the ASME CIE Young Engineer Award (2009). He received his B.Eng. degree (1998) in mechatronics engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology and his Ph.D. degree (2002) in mechanical engineering from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). He is a Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and is also currently the chair of Solid Modeling Association (SMA).
