Terror Before Terrorism with Warren C. Brown, Professor of History (Caltech Associates Event)

Location: Los Altos Golf & Country Club
1560 Country Club Dr.
Los Altos, CA 94024
Directions

Description:

At a time when terrorist attacks seem to be increasing and sowing fear across the globe, stepping back into the medieval past can expose how Western nations' ideas about terrorism have been shaped by their own cultural understandings of order and violence.

Join Caltech's Professor of History Warren C. Brown as he examines how terror was used in the Middle Ages to achieve specific goals and how societal, cultural, and legal norms governed Europeans' use of terror as a weapon, providing a new perspective which may help us better understand the motivation behind acts of terror carried out today.

Monthly Alumni Luncheon

Location: Baylands Café (formerly Bay Café)
1875 Embarcadero Road
Palo Alto, CA 94303
(650) 856-0999
Directions

Description:

This month, Anelia Angelova will discuss, “Vision Driving Robotics.”

From roving Mars to factory automation and rescue missions, robots have already made extremely valuable contributions. In coming years, robots will address even more sophisticated tasks in our daily lives (autonomous vehicles, delivery drones, or home chefs?). I will discuss the role of vision to the field of robotics and how it has shifted and greatly expanded the capabilities of robotics today. We will look into new headway made in vision-based learning for robotics, particularly learning by moving, learning from interactions with the environment, learning with limited supervision, and the role of simulations. I will also highlight more practical and relevant approaches that are designed for onboard deployment.

Anelia is a research scientist in the area of computer vision. She leads the Robot Vision research team in Brain Robotics at Google Brain. Her most recent research focuses on deep learning for robotics perception, including semantic and 3D scene understanding and real-time algorithms for pedestrian detection and robot grasp localization. She has integrated her work in production systems, including the first deep neural network models running onboard Google's self-driving car, now Waymo. Anelia received her MS and PhD in Computer Science from Caltech.
