IC Research Day 2014 on Big Data
Thursday, 12th June 2014
EPFL

IC Research Day 2014 on Big Data
Our world is in the midst of a revolution in information technology, at the centre of which is Big Data. We generate, collect, processe, and store data at phenomenally high rates. Communication, entertainment, financial and health services, social networking and mobile services are just a few examples of how our day-to-day interactions have transformed into data exchanges. Science has entered a data-centric “fourth paradigm” which complements theory, experimentation and simulation with analytics on massive scientific data, enabling discoveries from Big Data based on empirical principles; the fourth paradigm constitutes a fundamental change in the scientific methods as we know them. Big Data is a resource that can be turned into economic, cultural and scientific value. At the 2014 Research Day international top experts in managing Big Data will explore in a series of talks both opportunities and risks that the Big Data revolution brings along, and EPFL researchers will provide an opportunity to have a glimpse of EPFL research highlights on Big Data.

Prof. Karl Aberer of OpenSense is chairman.

IC Research Day 2013
Thursday, 13th June 2013
EPFL

IC Research Day 2013
Computational models of networks are the central tools in our effort to understand the behavior of large, distributed systems: Social networks capture how information and influence flow through society; infection networks describe how a disease becomes an epidemic; and neural networks replicate the cognitive patterns of their biological counterparts. These models enable us to explain, predict, and control such processes. We can reason about strategies for winning a word-of-mouth campaign on the social web, for identifying the likely source of an epidemic after the fact, and for modeling how the brain evolves with learning.

Through a series of talks by international experts on social networking, neuroscience, and network tomography, the 2013 Research Day will provide a fascinating glimpse of the potential and of the methods of this emerging science of networks.

During the morning, we will welcome three distinguished speakers who will explore this fascinating field:

 Jure Leskovec, Stanford University: Exploring the Structure of Massive On-Line Networks

 Jeff W. Lichtman, Harvard University: Imaging The Connectome

 Patrick Thiran, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne: Inference for Networks and Networks for Inference

TeraHertz: New opportunities for industry

TeraHertz (THz), the frequencies between electronics and optics, was until recently the last unexploited part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The harnessing of THz-based technologies has the potential of impacting globally a vast number of industries, like both electronics in the 70’s and optics in the 80’s did.

THz applications span over a wide array of fields, including:

  • Quality Control and Non-destructive testing
  • Surface analysis
  • Security
  • Chemical and Bio-Medical analysis
  • Telecommunications
Filling the Terahertz “gap” has led to unprecedented creativity in the development and commercialization of TeraHertz sources, transmission components and detectors.

Jérôme Faist, Principle Investigator of IrSens will be taking part.

Challenges in embedded system design: involvment of SMEs in designing complex systems
Wednesday, 24th November 2010
USI, Lugano

Challenges in embedded system design: involvment of SMEs in designing complex systems
For many applications, complexity of embedded systems has been steadily increasing in the past ten years, leading to new challenges when designing hardware and software. Innovative methodologies for reaching optimal solutions have been proposed: compared to the . monolithic . design tool-chain traditionally offered by the big EDA providers, flexible frameworks appear to offer attractive possibilities, in particular for the SMEs that increasingly face the design challenge. In fact, two aspects deserve discussing:
  • How can SMEs fit as providers of tools in the new design environment? Under what conditions could their offer be meaningful and successful?
  • As Embedded Systems designers, SMEs face a number of constraints - from cost to design time to strict customer requirements - that a-priori limit their design freedom. How is it possible to meet such constraints and yet propose innovation and optimization?
Some recent (or on-going) EU projects dealing with design of complex embedded systems have involved SMEs as active partners: Workshop speakers will discuss their experiences and outline future lines of evolution. An initial Round-Table presentation will be followed by interventions and discussion open to all participants.

Organised by Prof. Maria Sami, who is the Principle Investigator of COMES, with the participation of Prof. Giovanni de Micheli.
