ISI Announces Diverse Seminar Series

September 7, 2016

ISI has kicked off six different seminar series that reach across the Institute's research spectrum: cybersecurity, scientific computing, artificial intelligence, cyber physical systems, natural language and heterogeneous computing.

Speakers are being drawn from USC, other leading universities and research groups, and from ISI's own faculty, staff and students.

A seventh series features distinguished ISI alumni who share perspectives on their current work, look back at groundbreaking research, and otherwise examine what their ISI experience has meant. These alumni will span research areas and time frames, from our early years to the current decade, in what promise to be lively, engaging events.

Each series will be diverse in its own right. For example, proposed cybersecurity topics include malware analysis, usable and mobile security, and hardware execution cryptography and privacy. Cyber physical ("internet of things") systems topics aim to range from scientific and technical — including sensors, data analytics and machine learning — to the broader implications of internet ubiquity. And scientific computing aims to cover applications, methodologies, tools and infrastructure, such as portal interfaces, data interfaces and workflow management. Other series will be equally far-reaching.
