Multi-Robot Motion Planning: The Easy, the Hard and the Uncharted

Duke Computer Science Colloquium
Speaker Name
Dan Halperin
Location
LSRC D106
Date and Time
-

There are multi-robot motion planning (MRMP) problems involving dozens of robots, which can be speedily solved, while other are practically unsolvable. What makes an MRMP problem easy or hard?  In the first part of the talk I'll describe our quest to resolve this issue, and some progress we have made in the context of unlabeled MRMP.

Chisel Bootcamp

Special Event
Location
Nello L. Teer Building Room 203, 110 Science Drive, Durham, NC 27710
Date and Time
-
Register now for this two-day Chisel Bootcamp to learn how to design hardware with a highly productive and parameterizable Scala-embedded hardware description language, Chisel, from the University of California-Berkeley experts. Day 1 of this bootcamp will get you up to speed on Chisel and show you how to design simple hardware using Chisel. Day 2 of this bootcamp will show you how the Chisel and RocketChip toolchains can be used to design, simulate, and deploy custom hardware. RocketChip Generator is an open-source RISC-V SoC generator written in Chisel and developed at UC Berkeley. We will walk through a simple design example of a custom accelerator and how it is integrated into the RocketChip ecosystem. Space is limited; please register early at https://www2.cs.duke.edu/chiselbootcamp/registration.php

Seismic Shifts: Challenges and Opportunities in the “Post-ISA” Era of Computer Systems Design

Triangle Computer Science Distinguished Lecturer Series
Speaker Name
Margaret Martonosi
Location
LSRC D106
Date and Time
-
For decades, Moore’s Law and its partner Dennard Scaling have together enabled exponential computer systems performance improvements at manageable power dissipation. Unfortunately, the scaling gains afforded by these techniques come with significant costs: increased hardware and software complexity, degraded programmability and portability, and increased likelihood of design errors and security vulnerabilities. The talk will cover a range of design opportunities and challenges, with a particular emphasis on my group’s recent work on automated full-stack verification and optimization, and the surprising alignments between their applications in both classical and quantum computing systems.

TechConnect 2019

inDuke Event
Location
Fitzpatrick Center
Date and Time
-

InDuke TechConnect brings students and employers together for networking and education. Each year, employers connect with Engineering and Computer Science students in an open, dynamic networking environment. Students come prepared with resumes to meet industry and tech representatives to learn about employment opportunities available, the characteristics employers seek as well as a realistic and insightful view of the job market and career paths for students interested in engineering and technical careers.

Triangle Area Privacy and Security Day (TAPS)

Special Event
Location
JB Duke Hotel, Duke University
Date and Time
-

Hosted at Duke University and bringing together researchers, students and industry labs for a day of technical talks and posters in the broad areas of privacy, security, cryptography, and blockchains, the first-ever Triangle Area Privacy and Security Day (TAPS) is modeled after similar events occurring in Boston, DC and New York. The program will feature technical talks and a poster session.
