General Seminar

In this talk, I will present my recent and ongoing research towards realizing this vision. I will start by describing a computational approach for learning and predicting everyday activities from images taken with a wearable camera, and a complementary method for mitigating privacy concerns with first-person vision. Both of these approaches leverage deep learning algorithms, which have shown to be particularly well-suited for image recognition tasks. The second part of my talk will be focused on the detection and modeling of health-related behaviors. In particular, I will demonstrate three distinct techniques for recognizing dietary monitoring activities. The first technique uses on-body inertial sensors placed on the wrist while the other one centers on a novel, lightweight and non-contact wearable necklace. Lastly, I will show how eating episodes can be identified through auditory scene analysis. I will conclude the talk by describing on-going research activities in my laboratory and highlighting future research directions.

Internet of Things (IoT) is connected set of physical devices (called “smart devices”), consisting of sensors and actuators that enable a general class of cyber-physical systems such as smart homes, smart vehicles, smart buildings, smart cities, and intelligent transportation. To enable IoT systems to be managed and controlled, software platforms such as SmartThings by Samsung and IFTTT have emerged. In this talk, we systematically examine the security of such platforms.

Microwave instruments are sensitive to the (bulk-) electrical and geometric properties of the illuminated surface and vegetation, and are capable of observing the Earth’s surface under almost all weather conditions. While passive (radiometer) microwave instruments have been extensively used to predict soil moisture and other bio-/geophysical parameters from space on a global scale, active (radar) microwave instruments have been used only on a limited scale.

Imaging plays a critical role in advancing science. However, as science continues to push the boundaries of knowledge, traditional imaging approaches are reaching observational limits. In this talk I discuss how combining ideas from physics, signal processing, and machine learning has allowed us to transcend these limits in order to see people moving behind walls and take the first picture of a black hole.

Despite decades of research building secure operating sys-tems, many deployed systems must still choose between flexible application APIs and security. As a result, the vast majority of programmers are unable to improve these sys-tems. This is not merely a result of poor system building. It is hard to design highly extensible systems that are both secure and useful. Moreover, evaluating novel designs with actual developers is critical in order to make sure system builders can adopt research systems in practice.

Open House

The Spring 2018 Texas ECE Capstone Design Showcase will feature demonstrations of senior capstone projects and provide you with the opportunity to mix and mingle with faculty and students of a top ten ranked department in the new building. A photo gallery of the team projects and winners will be posted to our website after the event. We hope to see you there!

Current UT students do NOT need to register. 

We would like to thank our industry project sponsors:
