  • Infectious Disease Forecasting: Methods, Lessons, and Opportunities

    Tue, Nov 02, 2021 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Ajitesh Srivastava, Research Assistant Professor/Ming Hsieh Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering

    Talk Title: Infectious Disease Forecasting: Methods, Lessons, and Opportunities

    Abstract: After more than a year, COVID-19 continues to disrupt our lives. Efforts have been underway since the beginning to understand the epidemiological situation and generate short-term forecasts and long-term scenario projections to drive public health decisions. These efforts, called "hubs" are collaborations between government agencies and multiple universities. In this talk, I will discuss the lessons learned from my participation in several such efforts in modeling and projection of COVID-19, and the resulting research opportunities. I will also present my methodology which has evolved over time to now incorporate dynamics of multiple competing variants, vaccination behavior, age-specific contact matrices, and waning immunity. A key feature of the approach is that it avoids overfitting by splitting the model into independent linear regression problems. An additional advantage is that the runtime is low. As an example, learning the model and generating case, death, and hospitalization forecasts for 56 regions of the US, each with around 25 variants and 5 age groups, takes ~20s on a 2-core desktop. This also enables fast scenario projections, where even for each scenario multiple runs are needed to incorporate uncertainty in hyper-parameters and human behavior. This may not be the last pandemic we will face, and therefore the research does not end with COVID-19. In fact, the extensive data-collection, monitoring, and forecasting during this epidemic sets the stage for more impactful research in preparedness for future epidemics.

    Biography: Dr. Ajitesh Srivastava is a Research Assistant Professor at the Ming Hsieh Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering. He obtained his PhD in Computer Science at the University of Southern California in 2018. His research interests include network science, modeling, and machine learning applied to epidemics, social good, social networks, and systems. He collaborates with teams around the world, the CDC, and the ECDC for infectious disease forecasting and scenario projections. He is a DARPA Grand Challenge Winner (2014) on predicting the spread of Chikungunya virus.

  • CS Colloquium: Lisa Soros (Cross Labs) - Designing Open-Ended Algorithms via Artificial Life

    Tue, Nov 02, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:50 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Lisa Soros, Cross Labs

    Talk Title: Designing Open-Ended Algorithms via Artificial Life

    Series: Computer Science Colloquium

    Abstract: Most algorithms implemented in computers are designed to converge in a finite amount of time. Yet, some of the most powerful generative processes in the natural world (such as evolution) have been running for millions or billions of years. Is it possible to create algorithms that generate interesting and complex artifacts on the same scale as natural evolution? This talk will give an introduction to research on the synthesis and simulation of living systems, also known as Artificial Life. It will focus primarily on the challenge of open-ended evolutionary processes, which may pave the way for open-ended artificial intelligence.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.


    Biography: Lisa Soros is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Cross Labs, which is a hybrid academic-industrial research institute based in Kyoto, Japan and dedicated to studying natural and artificial intelligence. Her research interests broadly include evolutionary computation, artificial life, and video game AI. She is a graduate of the Evolutionary Complexity Research Group at the University of Central Florida and completed her dissertation, "Necessary Conditions for Open-Ended Evolution" in 2018. Since then, she has been an Assistant Professor at Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont and a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Game Innovation Lab at New York University.

    Wed, Nov 03, 2021 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Yan Gu, Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Lowell

    Talk Title: Dynamic Modeling, Hybrid Filtering, and Robust Control of Legged Robot Locomotion on Dynamic Rigid Surfaces

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

    Abstract: Legged robots have the potential to assist humans with a wide range of real-world tasks in dynamic, unstructured environments, such as search and rescue on disaster sites, monitoring of natural resources, home assistance, and delivery and courier services. They can navigate natural and built environments prohibitively challenging for wheeled or tracked robots and adapt to human environments without significant modifications of existing facilities (e.g., ladders, stairs, and narrow passageways). While legged locomotion on stationary (even or uneven) surfaces has been extensively studied, legged locomotion on a dynamic rigid surface (DRS), which is a rigid surface that moves in the inertial frame, remains a new robot functionality that has not been tackled. This new functionality will empower legged robots to perform high-risk tasks such as shipboard firefighting and fire suppression as well as disinfection on moving public transportation vehicles to help contain the spread of infectious diseases. Yet, enabling reliable DRS locomotion presents substantial challenges due to the high complexity of the hybrid, time-varying robot dynamics. In this talk, Dr. Yan Gu will present the latest research progress from her group in tackling the challenges associated with the modeling, state estimation, and control of DRS locomotion.

    Biography: Dr. Yan Gu received her B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Zhejiang University (China) in June 2011 and her Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in August 2017. She joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML) as an Assistant Professor in September 2017. Her research focuses on nonlinear control and hybrid systems with application to legged robots. Her long-term research goal is to realize provably safe and autonomous legged locomotion in dynamic, complex environments. She has received the NSF CAREER Award, the Frederick N. Andrews Fellowship at Purdue University, and the Chu Kochen Scholarship at Zhejiang University. Her research on legged locomotion has been funded by NSF, ONR, ARL, and Verizon's 5G Lab and reported by various media such as Boston Globe, CNET, Robotics Business Review, and NPR.

    Talk Title: A Digital Apprentice for Machining Chatter Detection: Application of Learning from Human Demonstration

    Abstract: Regenerative chatter in machining operations such as milling is a common process anomaly that limits productivity and part quality. Traditional approaches for addressing this anomaly include chatter avoidance methods based on off-line dynamic stability analysis, and on-line chatter detection and suppression through real-time sensing and control. Chatter avoidance methods require specialized knowledge and skills for dynamic system identification and suffer from uncertainty in the stability boundary identification. On-line chatter detection methods tend to suffer from a high number of false positives and cannot always reliably detect chatter before part/machine damage occurs. Consequently, manufacturers often rely on the auditory and cognitive abilities of experienced human operators to monitor and control the machining process. This talk will present recent work that is inspired by learning from human demonstration frameworks to enable effective milling chatter detection via human-machine interaction, which facilitates knowledge transfer from an experienced operator to a Digital Apprentice consisting of an audio sensor, a learnable skill primitive for chatter detection, and a human-machine interface. Experimental results evaluating the effectiveness of this approach for chatter detection will be presented and discussed.
