Campus Reopening Notice

Starting June 16th, vaccinated EECS faculty, staff, and students can voluntarily return to their offices, labs and other research spaces in Cory and Soda Halls if they follow the procedures outlined in the EECS Safety Manual.  Building restrictions for non-affiliated collaborators, event attendees, and visitors will continue but be loosened over time. Cory and Soda Halls will open during the first week in August.  We are not hosting events or activities until we receive more clarity about regulatory requirements and are able to resume full operations. Most employees will return to campus on July 12th, and in-person instruction will resume for the Fall semester on August 25th, unless otherwise specified by campus. Please continue to check the University Coronavirus Updates and Resources for latest information.

Increasing Diversity in Innovation Virtual Conference: Capturing America’s Lost Inventors

Virtual 2451 Ridge Road, Shire Hall (Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership)
Findings by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and leading researchers show that women, people of color and veterans are significantly underrepresented as US patent inventors. All of the data indicates that the US has missed out on millions of inventors, impacting national innovation and economic growth . On July 26-29, the US Intellectual Property Alliance and UC Berkeley will host...

Dissertation Talk: Reliable Machine Learning in Feedback Systems

Zoom
  • Sarah Dean
Machine learning techniques have been successful for processing complex information, and thus they have the potential to play an important role in data-driven decision-making and control. However, ensuring the reliability of these methods in feedback systems remains a challenge, since classic statistical and algorithmic guarantees do not always hold. In this talk, I will provide rigorous...

Dissertation Talk: Perceiving Humans and Objects in Motion

Zoom
  • Zhe Cao
We exist in a 3D world, where we accomplish everyday tasks by perceiving and interacting with other people and objects in dynamic scenes. Could we develop a perception system to understand such rich human interactions? This is crucial for future intelligent systems to collaborate with humans and to create immersive AR/VR experiences. In this talk, I will present my research on perceiving...

Dissertation Talk: Behavioral Network Economics

Zoom
  • Soham Phade
Cumulative prospect theory (CPT), one of the leading models for decision under risk and uncertainty, combines several psychological insights into decision theory. In this talk, I will present some of my research concerning the following three topics through the lens of CPT: resource allocation over networks, equilibrium notions in game theory, and mechanism design.

Dissertation Talk : An Implantable Radiation Detector for Cancer Radiotherapy

Zoom
  • Kyoungtae Lee
This dissertation presents a millimeter-scale CMOS 64X64 single charged particle radiation detector system for cancer radiotherapy, such as external beam radiotherapy (EBRT), targetted radionuclide therapy (TBRT), or brachytherapy. A 1 um X 1 um diode measures energy deposition by a single charged particle in the depletion region, and the array design provides a large detection area of 512 um X...

Dissertation Talk: Three Dimensional Phase Contrast Electron Tomography For Multiple Scattering Samples

Zoom
  • David Ren
Electron tomography is a technique used in both materials science and structural biology to image features well below optical resolution limit. In this talk, I will present a new algorithm for reconstructing the three-dimensional(3D) electrostatic potential of multiple scattering samples at from phase contrast imaging using high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. Fisrt, I will show the...

Deep Learning-Assisted Analysis of Anomalous Nanoparticle Surface Diffusion in Liquid Phase TEM: Nano Seminar Series

180 Tan Hall
  • Dr. Vida Jamali, UC Berkeley, CBE
Beginning with Robert Brown’s original observation in 1828, various techniques have been developed to study the hydrodynamics and interactions of particles in solution. These techniques have inspired or been followed by development of theories that are capable of describing these fundamental aspects of micron-scale particles. Yet, many of the underlying assumptions break down at the nanoscale...
