ECE seminar series: 5G Revolution through WISDOM

Babbio Center, Room 319

5G Revolution through WISDOM

 

BY Dr. Ramjee Prasad

Director of the Center for TeleInfrastruktur (CTIF),

Professor Chair of Wireless Information Multimedia Communication at Aalborg University (AAU), Denmark

 

ABSTRACT

The presentation introduces a new 5G concept known as WISDOM, representing Wireless Innovative System for Dynamically Operating Mega-Communications. The following two key points will be discussed from the WISDOM point of view. (1) System and services, where system is technologies for the network and network device or terminals while services will be means of provisioning services and ideas for new applications. (2) Security, privacy and trust: security will be inherent to system under development and also be developed as a separate service considering cyber security, privacy issues and trust aspects

NYCRIN I-Corps Announcing the kickoff of the first regional I-Corps

New York, NY

Agenda:
8:00 - 8:30 am Breakfast
8:30 - 8:45 am Welcome
8:45 - 11:30 am Team Presentations: (15 minutes total, 10 minute Lessons Learned presentation, 2 minute Lessons Learned video and 3 minutes of teaching team comment)
11:30 - 12:00 pm Closing Session

This inaugural cohort, based on the NSF I-CorpsTM program which uses the Lean LaunchPad methodology of hypothesis-driven customer discovery, began with a competitive application process of submissions from schools across the four-state region. The application review and interview process resulted in a total of 34 team members in 10 single- and collaborative-university teams from Lehigh University, The Zahn Center for Entrepreneurship, New York University, Columbia University Medical Center, and the City University of New York. All teams attended the kickoff which began with a reception hosted by the CUNY Central Office on the evening of Tuesday, February 18th.

If you'd like to attend the Finale Showcase on Thursday, April 17th, please register here. Registration is free but seats are limited.

The cohort's exceptional instructor team is made up of the core Teaching Team from CUNY, NYU, and Columbia as well as co-instructors from across the NYCRIN region, including organizations such as the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute, the Industrial & Technology Assistance Corporation, New Jersey Institute of Technology, the Field Center for Entrepreneurship out of Baruch College, Scheinman Law, and the Community Development Venture Capital Alliance.

Much of the kickoff workshops took place at Columbia’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Barnard College. A highlight of the kickoff was the "How to Succeed in I-Corps" which featured 8 previous team members from each of the 3 roles: Principal Investigators (PI), Entrepreneurial Leads (EL) and Industry Mentors (IM). The panelists included (click links for team videos): Shobana Shanmugasundaram (EL) and Michael Ehrlich (IM) from NJIT, Annamarie Pasqualone (EL) from the University of Delaware, Michele Vitadello (PI), Rhodemann Li (IM) and Stephen Gundry (EL) from CUNY, Carlo Yuvienco (EL) from NYU and Dunbar Birnie (PI) from Rutgers. The panelists detailed the challenges and pathways to success they each encountered and fielded questions from the current cohort team members after their first "Get Out of the Building" experience.

Overall, the kickoff of the first-ever NYCRIN I-Corps program was an exciting success and the 10 entrepreneurial teams are conducting customer interviews by Getting Out of the Building for the next several weeks!

If your institution would like NYCRIN to hold an I-Corps training for your researchers, please email info@nycrin.org.

CS Department Seminar: John R. Smith, (IBM Research), Semantic Modeling and Retrieval of Image and Video Content

Babbio Center 221

Abstract:
In this talk we describe multiple industry problems requiring content-based analysis and retrieval of images and video across the safety and security, medical, Web, social media and mobile domains.  We present a multi-layer framework for semantic learning and recognition and show how modeling and extraction can be mapped to “big data” distributed computing platforms to enable massive scale image and video analytics.  We describe multiple efforts at IBM, including IBM Multimedia Analysis and Retrieval System (IMARS) and IBM Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) and demonstrate recent results.  We conclude with future directions for improving multimedia analytics through automated and interactive techniques for learning effective visual features and semantic models.
 
Bio:
Dr. John R. Smith is Senior Manager, Intelligent Info. Systems, IBM T. J. Watson Research Center.  He leads IBM's research on multimedia analysis and retrieval including image/video content extraction, semantic modeling, video event detection and social media analysis.  Dr. Smith leads development of IBM Multimedia Analysis and Retrieval System (IMARS) and is PI for IBM's IARPA ALADDIN project.  Dr. Smith conducted some of the earliest work on Web image/video search (WebSEEk and VisualSEEk), which has been highly influential, and has published more than two hundred papers in peer reviewed journals and conferences (16K citations, h-index of 59, i-index of 188).  Dr. Smith is a Fellow of IEEE.

Humanities Forum - Greg Morgan, "Is Cancer Catching?"

Morton 324, Stevens Institute of Technology

ABSTRACT
In this presentation, Gregory Morgan will discuss the career of Ludwik Gross, a Polish American virologist. Gross made two important scientific advances in the 1950s, discovering the first mouse leukemia virus and a mouse tumor that he called parotid tumor virus. He faced much skepticism and opposition to his motivating idea that viruses caused cancer, but by the end of the decade, the medical community recognized him as a pioneer when researchers were able to duplicate his methods and results, and additional tumor and leukemia-causing mouse viruses were found by Arnold Graffi, Charlotte Friend, John Moloney, and others. Gross also faced competition from Sarah Stewart and Bernice Eddy, who renamed the parotid tumor virus SE polyoma virus after finding it could cause many different types of tumors in mice, hamsters, and rats.  Later the “SE” was dropped and virologists adopted the name “polyoma virus.”  In 1961 Gross published Oncogenic Viruses, the first history of tumor virology, which became a standard reference work.

BIOGRAPHY
Gregory Morgan an Associate Professor in Philosophy in the College of Arts & Letters at Stevens. His research areas include environmental policy, business ethics, and history and philosophy of biology. In the past he has written about the nature of microbial biodiversity, the ontology of life, and the birth of molecular biology. His first book, Philosophy of Science Matters (Oxford University Press, 2011), examined the nature of scientific evidence. His current research project examines the history of the idea that viruses cause cancer. It is thought that 20% of cancers world wide are caused by viruses like Hepatitis B and HPV, and much of the current understanding of the molecular basis of cancer is due to pioneering work done with viruses that cause cancers in chickens, mice, and primates. His next book, Cancer Virus Hunters, will tell the story of these advances.

CSW Event: Dan Fagin (NYU), "Lessons from the Toms River Cancer Cluster"

Babbio 122

Wednesday, April 23, 3-4:30 p.m., Babbio Auditorium
"Lessons from the Toms River Cancer Cluster"
A Talk by Dan Fagin, Director of the Science Journalism program, New York University.

ABSTRACT
A quiet seaside town in New Jersey, Toms River became the unlikely setting for a decades-long drama that culminated in 2001 with one of the largest legal settlements in the annals of toxic dumping. A town that would rather have been known for its Little League World Series champions ended up making history for an entirely different reason: a notorious cluster of childhood cancers scientifically linked to local air and water pollution. For years, large chemical companies had been using Toms River as their private dumping ground, burying tens of thousands of leaky drums in open pits and discharging billions of gallons of acid-laced wastewater into the town’s namesake river.

Science journalist Dan Fagin will recount the sixty-year saga of rampant pollution and inadequate oversight that made Toms River a cautionary example for fast-growing industrial towns from South Jersey to South China. He will tell the stories of the pioneering scientists and physicians who first identified pollutants as a cause of cancer, and will bring to life the everyday heroes in Toms River who struggled for justice.

BIOGRAPHY
Dan Fagin is a nationally prominent journalist on environmental health topics. He has twice been a principal member of reporting teams that were finalists for the Pulitzer Prize, and has won both of the best-known science journalism prizes in the United States, from the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the National Association of Science Writers. Fagin is an associate professor of journalism and the director of the masters-level Science, Health and Environmental Reporting Program (SHERP) at New York University. He is the author of Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation (Bantam Books, 2013), which was recently awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction, and is the co-author of Toxic Deception (Common Courage Press, 2002). A native of Oklahoma City, he attended Dartmouth College, where he was the editor-in-chief and president of the college newspaper. He has been a Templeton-Cambridge Fellow in Science and Religion at the University of Cambridge and has also had fellowships at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and the Institute of Arctic Biology in Toolik Lake, Alaska.

Mindtools: What Does it Mean to be Literate in the Age of Google?

Babbio 104

Howe School Seminar

Daniel Russell, Ph.D., Research Scientist, Google

ABSTRACT:  What does it mean to be literate at a time when you can search billions of texts in less than 300 milliseconds? Although you might think that "literacy" is one of the great constants that transcends the ages, the skills of a literate person have changed substantially over time as texts and technology allow for new kinds of reading and understanding. Knowing how to read is just the beginning of it — knowing how to frame a question, pose a query, how to interpret the texts you find, how to organize and use the information you discover, how to understand your metacognition — these are all critical parts of being literate as well. In this talk Dan will review what literacy is today, in the age of Google, and show how some very surprising and unexpected skills will turn out to be critical in the years ahead. We have created powerful new tools for the mind. Thing is, those tools are constantly evolving and changing even as the things they operate on change as well. This puts us in the position of having to learn how to find tools, and understanding the substrate on which they work. Literacy in these days is not just reading and writing, but also understanding what knowledge tools are available, and how they can be used in interesting new ways.


BIO:  Daniel Russell is a research scientist at Google where he works in the area of search quality, with a focus on understanding what makes Google users happy in their use of web search. He is sometimes called a search anthropologist.

From 2000 until mid-2005, Dan was a senior research scientist in the User Sciences and Experience Research (USER) lab at IBM’s Almaden Research Center (San José, CA). The lab’s main interests are in the areas of designing the complete user experience of computation, especially in the domains of highly sensed / attentive environments, formalizing the characteristics of human behaviors for input mechanisms, and creating new ways of emplacing computation into the work space. As an individual contributor, Dan is best known for his recent work on the large, interactive IBM BlueBoard system for simple collaboration, and for his studies of sensemaking behavior of people dealing with understanding large amounts of information.

Prior to his engagement at IBM, Dan managed the User Experience Research group at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center. Returning to PARC after a nearly 5 year stint at Apple, UER @ PARC spent 9 months working on the design of a complete user experience for a new class of information appliance. The group designed and implemented Madcap, a highly interactive browser for large, richly coordinated media collections.

Until September of 1997, Dan was the Director of the Knowledge Management Technologies laboratory within Apple’s Advanced Technology Group (ATG). In this capacity, he coordinated the research efforts of five areas (Intelligent Systems, Spoken Language, User Experience, Interaction Design, and Information Technology) to provide an amalgamating, integrative direction to the research as a whole. Before KMT, he managed Apple’s User Experience Research group, which studied issues of sensemaking, cognitive modelling of analysis tasks, synchronous and asynchronous collaboration, shared awareness of individual state, joint work coordination, and knowledge-based use of complex, heterogenous information.

Prior to joining Apple in 1993, Dan was a Member of the Research Staff at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) in the User Interface Research group studying uses of information visualization techniques. Before that, from 1984 through 1991 he led the "Instructional Design Environment" project (with both Richard Burton and Tom Moran) to develop a practical computer-aided design and analysis system for use in ill-structured design tasks. In addition to his work at PARC, he is an adjunct lecturer on the Engineering and Computer Science (Computer Science) faculty of the University of Santa Clara, and teaches special topics classes in Artificial Intelligence at Stanford University.

Dan publishes widely, with more than 100 articles and publications in his CV. He is a frequent subject of press interviews and has helped portray a great deal of complex technology to the non-technical world.

Dr. Russell received his B.S. in Information and Computer Science from U.C. Irvine, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Rochester. While at Rochester, he did graduate work in the neuropsychology of laterality, models of apraxia and aphasia, coordinated motor movements and computer vision. Prior to PARC, Dr. Russell worked in the Xerox Webster Research Center gaining practical experience in printing systems and computer architecture.

1 Castle Point on Hudson, Hoboken NJ

The capstone senior design project is the culmination of the undergraduate experience, where knowledge gained in the classroom is applied to a major design project. The pinnacle of the experience is the Senior Design Exposition, where all the projects are displayed for the general public and Stevens community. Stevens recognizes the importance of applying projects to real world problems and encourages senior projects to be sponsored or mentored in collaboration with an industrial partner. This provides projects of value to the sponsor, and it imbues a professional orientation in the student team as they work towards providing the sponsor with deliverables in a manner that simulates the environment in a professional environment. Please explore this year’s collaborations, organized by industry.

ECE seminar series: Improving Reliability of Modern Microprocessors

Babbio Center, Room 319

Improving Reliability of Modern Micro-processors

 

BY Dr. Naghmeh Karimi

Assistant Professor, ECE Department

Polytechnic School of Engineering at New York University

 

ABSTRACT

Reliability, trustworthiness, and performance of microprocessors have become major concerns regarding the deployment of microprocessors in a wide range of application domains. On the other hand, modern microprocessors exhibit a high degree of application-level error masking, which suppresses a significant percentage of errors and prevents them from interfering with correct program execution. Therefore, applying generic robustness solutions for microprocessors typically incurs prohibitive costs. This talk explores how the workload-cognizant analysis of the impact of various malfunctions in modern processors may effectively guide in identifying the most vulnerable functionality of the microprocessors and developing robustness solutions for them.

 

BIOGRAPHY

Naghmeh Karimi is a visiting Assistant Professor of the Polytechnic School of Engineering at New York University. She received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tehran in 2010. She was a visiting researcher at Yale University for two years during her Ph.D. program and a Post-doctoral researcher at Duke University after the completion of her Ph.D. program. Her research interests include design-for-testability and security, concurrent testing, fault tolerance, hardware security, and computer architecture.
