Teer 203
Speaker: Shuran Song, PhD candidate in Computer Science at Princeton University
Intelligent robots require advanced vision capabilities to perceive and interact with the real physical world. While computer vision has made great strides in recent years, its predominant paradigm still focuses on analyzing image pixels to infer 2D output representations (bounding boxes,... Read More »

Physics 298
Speaker: Gordon Cates (University of Virginia)
"Neutron structure studies at medium and low energies using polarization degrees of freedom" - The use of polarization degrees of freedom have played a key role in better understanding the structure of the nucleon. Examples include spin-structure studies using polarized deep inelastic scattering as... Read More »

Physics 128
Speaker: Abbas Ourmazd (University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee)
"Structure and Dynamics from Random Observations" Don't be a control freak. At weddings, the bridal photo is taken under bright lights, with the happy couple holding still. Traditionally in science, the "best" observations are those with the largest signal from the most tightly controlled system.... Read More »

Raleigh, NC
Speaker: Carlos Sa De Melo (Georgia Tech)
I describe the emergence of color superfluid phases for systems of ultra-cold atoms with artificial color-orbit and color-flip fields for three-component (Red-Green-Blue) Fermi systems. For fermions interacting only in the s-wave channel, I describe the phase diagrams of color-flip fields versus... Read More »

LSRC D106
Speaker: Antoine Kaufmann
TCP is widely used for client-server communication in modern data centers. But TCP packet handling is notoriously CPU intensive, accounting for an increasing fraction of data center processing time. Techniques such as TCP segment offload, kernel bypass, and RDMA are of limited benefit for the... Read More »

LSRC D106
Speaker: Aylin Caliskan
Following the progress in computing and machine learning algorithms as well as the emergence of big data, artificial intelligence (AI) has become a reality impacting every fabric of our algorithmic society. Despite the explosive growth of machine learning, the common misconception that machines... Read More »

LSRC D106
Speaker: Sebastian Angel
In the past decade there has been a significant increase in the collection of personal information and communication metadata (with whom users communicate, when, how often) by governments, Internet providers, companies, and universities. While there are many ongoing efforts to secure users'... Read More »

LSRC D106
Speaker: Kirill Levchenko
Computer security is evolving from a prescriptive engineering discipline into a science, where security problems and defenses are understood as a product of technical, social, and economic forces. Central to the scientific method is the idea that empirical evidence is the ultimate arbiter, and this... Read More »

Hudson Hall 125
Speaker: Tiffany Bao, PhD candidate in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University
To protect the billions of computers running countless programs, security researchers have pursued automated vulnerability detection and remediation techniques, attempting to scale such analyses beyond the limitations of human hackers. However, although techniques will mitigate, or even eliminate... Read More »
