Invitation to a talk by Prof. Lara Dolecek, University of California, Los Angeles, CA

TIME:
16 September 2016, 10:00 AM
PLACE:
HFT - Hochfrequenztechnik building, 6th floor, 
Room HFT-TA 617, Einsteinufer 25, 10587 Berlin
TITLE:
Coding Theory for Modern Computing

ABSTRACT: 

Computing under uncertainty is an emerging paradigm in modern information processing systems. In this talk, we first review exciting recent results on the multifaceted role coding approaches can play in this important discipline, including fundamental performance limits of noisy iterative algorithms and decoders,  implications on system design, and coding-theoretic methods for approximate computing. We also explore connections between coding theory and other disciplines in modern computing, and we present several new and promising research directions in coding for modern computing and noisy iterative information processing.

BIO:

Lara Dolecek is an Associate Professor  with the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). She holds a B.S. (with honors), M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, as well as an M.A. degree in Statistics, all from the University of California, Berkeley. She received the 2007 David J. Sakrison Memorial Prize for the most outstanding doctoral research in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley. Prior to joining UCLA, she was a postdoctoral researcher with the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She received IBM Faculty Award (2014), Northrop Grumman Excellence in Teaching Award (2013), Intel Early Career Faculty Award (2013), University of California Faculty Development Award (2013), Okawa Research Grant (2013), NSF CAREER Award (2012), and Hellman Fellowship Award (2011). With her students and collaborators, she received a best paper award from IEEE Globecom 2015 conference and two Best-of-Selse Awards in 2016. She currently serves as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Communications. Her current research is in coding theory, inference, and computational methods, and especially in discovering new mathematical tools that will enable future data storage and computing technologies.
