ECE PhD Proposal Review: Tong Jian

December 2, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

PhD Proposal Review: Robust Sparsified Deep Learning Tong Jian Location: Zoom Link (ID: 75807284369, Passcode: 463BXOZk) Abstract: In this thesis, we investigate and address robustness concerns about DNN-based real-life applications on resource constrained systems, environment adaptation, and adversarial learning, respectively. We propose a means of compressing a Radio Frequency (RF) deep neural network architecture through weight pruning, and provide a systems-level analysis of the implementation of such a pruned architecture at resource-constrained edge devices. In particular, we jointly train and…

ECE PhD Dissertation Defense: Murphy Wonsick

December 3, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

PhD Dissertation Defense: Supervisory Control for Humanoid Robots Through Virtual Reality Interfaces Murphy Wonsick Location: ISEC 655 Abstract: Recent advancements in robotics have allowed robots to become capable enough to be used in a wide variety of domains that are dangerous for humans to operate in, such as disaster relief operations, exploration of extraterrestrial planets, bomb disposal, or nuclear decommissioning efforts. However, current supervisory control interfaces that allow humans to explore and interact in these environments through remote presence and…

ECE PhD Dissertation Defense: Sara Banian

December 7, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

PhD Dissertation Defense: Content-Aware AI-Driven Design Assistance Frameworks for Graphic Design Layouts Sara Banian Location: Zoom Link Abstract: Designing user interfaces (UIs) for mobile interaction is widespread but still challenging. It is important for the overall user satisfaction and application success. During the design process, designers express their requirements through images describing the UI’s layout, structure, and content. Designers, however, encounter key challenges throughout the design process. For example, searching for inspiring design examples is challenging because current search systems…

ECE PhD Proposal Review: Leonardo Bonati

December 10, 2021 @ 1:45 pm - 2:45 pm

PhD Proposal Review: Softwarized Approaches for the Open RAN of NextG Cellular Networks Leonardo Bonati Location: 532 ISEC Abstract: The 5th (5G) and 6th generations (6G) of cellular networks, also known as NextG, will bring unprecedented flexibility to the wireless cellular ecosystem. Because of its typically closed and rigid market, the telco industry has incurred high costs and non-trivial obstacles in delivering those new services and functionalities to satisfy the requirements and the demand of NextG networks. To break this…
