Datacenters host a wide range of today's low-latency applications. To meet their strict latency requirements at scale, datacenter networks are designed as topologies that can provide a large number of parallel paths between each pair of hosts. The recent trend towards simple datacenter network... Read More »

3/1/18 Data Dialogue with Brandon Nichols
Thursday, March 1, 2018 - 12:00pm
Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium Side A, room 1464
Emerging device, such as ReRAM, is highly efficient to accelerate various DNN based applications, such as approximate computing. However, in device level, these emerging devices suffer from low yield due to various defects and process variations. In application level, on the other hand, the complex... Read More »

Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium Side B, room 1466
This talk will provide an overview of techniques developed in my group to enable robots to react rapidly in the face of changes in the environment when manipulating objects. Learning is guided by observing humans' elaborate manipulatory skills. I will stress how important it is to model the various... Read More »
