Stop 'Business as Usual'

Make an actionable plan on how you will work to end anti-Black racism.
Abstract / Description: 

Excerpted from :

As scientists and academics, we know that in order to solve a problem, we first need to understand it. This is just as true for structural racism and anti-Blackness! It's also important for non-Black folks to not rely on Black folks for this education.

SPECIAL EVENT Probability Seminar presents "Universality of approximate message passing algorithms"

Universality of approximate message passing algorithms
Abstract / Description: 

Approximate Message Passing (AMP) algorithms are non-linear power iterations originally arising from the context of compressed sensing. In this talk, I will introduce a Lipschitzian functional iteration, as a generalization of the AMP algorithms, and discuss its universality in disorder. In addition, I will explain how our results imply universality in a number of AMPs popularly adapted in Bayesian inferences and optimizations in spin glasses.

This is based on a joint work with Wai-Kit Lam.

Joint with Applied Mathematics Seminar

EE Community Town Hall

Community Support and Q and A
Abstract / Description: 



There aren't enough words to fully express the sadness we feel due to the social injustice that our communities of color have been facing in these recent tragic events and the social injustices that have been continuous in our everyday lives. We understand that many of you are deeply affected both directly and indirectly and we know that everyone is processing and coping with the situation in their own way.

We want all of you to know that we support you, especially our students of color. We understand that you are hurting and we acknowledge your pain. Now more than ever, we need to support each other and uplift one another. With that said, we would like to hold another EE Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, June 11th, 2020 from 2:00pm-3:00pm (Pacific Daylight Time).

At this town hall, we want to connect with everyone, see how everyone's feeling, welcome any comments, and answer any questions you have regarding what's going on in our community and/or the future of our department in the autumn quarter.

Please RSVP by 9am on Wednesday, June 10:
*You can list up to 3 questions on the RSVP form. You can also ask questions during the meeting using the chat function in Zoom.

The panelists include:

  • EE Department Chair: Prof. Stephen Boyd
  • EE Associate Chair of Graduate Education: Prof. Brad Osgood
  • EE Associate Chair of Undergraduate Education: Prof. John Pauly
  • Director of Finance and Operations: Mary K. McMahon (moderator)
  • Director of Student and Academic Services: Meo Kittiwanich
