ONLINE LEARNING FOR ALGORITHMIC BIDDING We consider the problem of algorithmic bidding in repeated auctions of goods with unknown clearing prices and value. This problem arises naturally in electricity markets where market participants arbitrage electricity across time or locations. Online advertising is another example where…

WORLD'S DEEPEST-PENETRATION AND FASTEST OPTICAL CAMERAS: PHOTOACOUSTIC TOMOGRAPHY AND COMPRESSED ULTRAFAST PHOTOGRAPHY We developed photoacoustic tomography to peer deep into biological tissue. Photoacoustic tomography (PAT) provides in vivo omniscale functional, metabolic, molecular, and histologic imaging across the scales of…

DR. NAEHYUCK CHANG LOW-POWER DESIGN FROM EMBEDDED COMPUTING TO CYBER-PHYSICAL SYSTEMS Power consumption became one of the most critical limiting factors in modern electronics systems design from Internet of Things to high-performance computing systems as the device and circuit techniques are being matured. By contrast, systemlevel…

DR. SHUAIWEN SONG UNLEASHING THE POWER OF HOLISTIC SYSTEM DESIGN FOR EMERGING WORKLOADS Within a decade, the technological underpinnings for the process Gordon Moore described will likely come to an end as silicon photolithography approaches atomic scale. To continue the rapid, predictable, and affordable scaling of computing…

ARCHITECTURING ATOMICALLY-THIN MATERIALS FOR MULTIFUNTIONALITY   Materials with designed structural features, such as layers, crumples, folds or ridges (i.e., architectured materials), are rapidly emerging as an exciting class of materials with new, adaptive, and multifunctional properties. The limitless combinations of design and…

A Cyber-Physical System (CPS) is a cross-domain system integrating sub systems from multiple domains connected through communication networks. Today, CPSs can be found in security-sensitive areas such as aerospace, automotive, energy, healthcare, manufacturing transportation, entertainment, and consumer appliances. Compared to the…

INSTRUCTION SET ARCHITECTURE AS A LEVER FOR BETTER SECURITY, PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY IN GENERAL PURPOSE PROCESSORS In general purpose processors, the instruction set architecture changes little over time, to maximize software compatibility. In this talk, I make the case that abandoning that approach can provide big gains in…

NANO-PHOTONICS, PLASMONICS, AND MEMRISTOR We have enjoyed the great successes of “Moore’s law” for more than four decades. They have mainly been fueled by the semiconductor industry. Although the end of the roadmap may be getting closer, it is just the start of a new era when we will leverage the billions of dollars that have been…

MINIATURIZED SOURCES OF ULTRASHORT OPTICAL PULSES AND HIGH SPECTRAL PURITY MICROWAVE SIGNALS A train of ultrashort optical pulses is comprised of a large number of laser tones oscillating synchronously. This equally-spaced array of frequencies, called an optical frequency comb, has found applications in the generation of high…

Nano-Optics for Highly Localized EM Fields and Some Applications This presentation describes studies of optical phenomena at the nanoscale for coupling electromagnetic waves into bright, sub-diffraction-limited spots. In particular, we investigate optical and infrared antennas designed to strongly resonate with radiation. The gain…
