Abstract: The next generation of computing platforms increases proximity to the source of information rather than to humans, allowing much more aggressive miniaturization. The key technology for miniaturization had been process scaling, which had reduced the silicon area, increased computational capability and lowered power consumption. However, the latest deep-submicron technologies do not fit well with ... Read more about "EE Seminar: Ultra low power circuit designs for miniaturized systems"

DISTINGUISHED LECTURE IN BIOLOGICAL ENGINEERING (sandwiches served) Abstract: There is a high demand to develop innovative and cost effective devices with interest for health care beside environment diagnostics, safety and security applications. The development of such devices is strongly related to new materials and technologies being nanomaterials and nanotechnology of special role. We study how ...

Understanding the mechanisms, extent, and consequences of receptor co-localization and inter-receptor communication is critical for the design and development of therapeutic nanoparticles and functional biomaterial scaffolds. Nature orchestrates specificity and selectivity in receptor targeting by introducing multivalency to control binding affinities. (i) Cell-cell interactions, cell-matrix binding and immune activation all are controlled through multiple weak ...

BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: In my presentation I’ll show how modular protein sensor design strategies originally developed for FRET sensor proteins are easily adapted for the development of robust BRET and dual BRET/FRET sensors. In particular I’ll focus on the development of various BRET-based homogenous assays that allow detection of antibodies (LUMABS; LUMinescent AntiBody Sensors), small ...

Abstract By considering mechanism design and economic arguments to incentivise honest participation and provide security, blockchains allow for a completely open setting. This setting requires new consensus protocols, and thus new assumptions and security properties. In this talk, I will discuss the idea of decentralization and how it relates to Game Theory, Distributed Systems and ... Read more about "Designing Decentralized Systems with Incentives"

The outstanding Catalan philosopher and theologian Ramon Llull (c.1232–1316) encourages us to reread the late Middle Ages. Llull, not only theoretically and linguistically invented a new method of knowledge acquisition, like an engineer, he also mechanized it, and translated it into a machine. The EPFL instance is curated by: Prof. Dr. Amador Vega, (Universitat Pompeu ... Read more about "Thinking Machines. Ramon Llull and the ars combinatoria"
