Title: Implicit Bias of SGD for Diagonal Linear Networks: a Provable Benefit of Stochasticity
Abstract: Understanding the implicit bias of training algorithms is of crucial importance in order to explain the success of overparametrised neural networks. In this talk, we study the dynamics of stochastic gradient descent over diagonal linear networks through its continuous time version, namely stochastic gradient flow. We explicitly characterise the solution chosen by the stochastic flow and prove that it always enjoys better generalisation properties than that of gradient flow. Quite surprisingly, we show that the convergence speed of the training loss controls the magnitude of the biasing effect: the slower the convergence, the better the bias.
Our findings highlight the fact that structured noise can induce better generalisation and they help to explain the greater performances observed in practice of stochastic gradient descent over gradient descent.

Bio: Nicolas Flammarion is a tenure-track assistant professor in computer science at EPFL. Prior to that, he was a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley, hosted by Michael I. Jordan. He received his PhD in 2017 from Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, where he was advised by Alexandre d’Aspremont and Francis Bach.

MEchanics GAthering -MEGA- Seminar: The scale dependence in the dynamics of frictional rupture: insight from the laboratory

Federica Paglialunga ( LEMR , EPFL)

Abstract When an earthquake nucleates in the earth crust, the potential energy accumulated during the inter-seismic period is released into breakdown work, heat energy and radiated energy. Often the breakdown work is considered a seismological equivalent of the fracture energy. However, discrepancies related to the definition of the two are not yet fully solved. To this end, we reproduce frictional ruptures in the laboratory, as analog for earthquakes, to investigate the relationship between these two energies.

Bio PhD student in the Laboratory of Experimental Rock Mechanics, currently working on laboratory earthquakes energy budget. She is interested in experimental techniques to study different stages of rupture dynamics and frictional contact.

IMX Seminar Series - Development of iontronics -application and future

Prof. Shimpei Ono, Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry, Japan

Electric field control of charge carrier density has long been a key technology to tune the physical properties of condensed matter, exploring the modern semiconductor industry. One of the big challenges is to increase the maximum attainable carrier density, however it is limited by the quality of gate dielectrics. In this talk, I'm going to show the novel technique to modulate carrier density making use of ionic liquid electrolytes. With electrolyte gating, we can modulate up to 10^15/cm2 of carrier density at the interface which is 2 orders of magnitude larger than conventional gate dielectrics and demonstrate that we can indeed control metal-to-insulator and ferromagnetic-paramagnetic transition by electric-field effect doping. I also will show our recent progress (energy harvester and light emitting device) using ionic liquid electrolytes.

MechE Colloquium: Nothing is for Granted: Making Wise Decisions through Real-time Intelligence

Prof. Anastasia Ailamaki, Data-Intensive Applications and Systems Laboratory (DIAS), School of Computer and Communication Sciences (IC), Institute of Computer and Communication Sciences (IINFCOM), EPFL

Abstract: 
In today's ever-growing demand for fast, data-driven decisions, variable data formats, dynamic application requirements, and the introduction of new hardware platforms severely undermines efficiency of data pipelines. The variety in data formats and workloads forces data pipelines to be manually split across a variety of task-specialized systems and combined through expensive transformation and orchestration processes, or to adapt both the data and the workloads to match the requirements of a single-system, sacrificing expressiveness and structural information. Furthermore, the ever-increasing hardware heterogeneity causes task-based specialization of the tools to specific hardware such as CPUs or GPUs, forcing a trade-off: designing optimized hardware often means wasting accelerator-level parallelism opportunities or tolerating slow and unnecessary communication between devices. Typically, data processing is adapted to the pre-determined data processing system architecture, losing valuable information in the translation.

Real-time intelligence means to abolish all prior preparation and instead make all decisions during execution, when all relevant information is available for optimal utilisation of resources. The system learns and extracts information about the requests, instead of depending on pre-determined workload expectations. I will show how designing top-down the system architecture to allow a data- and workload-driven just-in-time specialization enables fast query execution over unprepared, potentially dirty data without time consuming preparation, as well as efficient orchestration and utilization of heterogeneous hardware devices.

"Magnetic Artificial Cilia Mimicking their Nanoscale Biological Peers "

Dr Islam Tanveer, Postdoc fellow at the Eindhoven University of Technology

Cilia are hair-like microscopic structures present abundantly in our body and producing motions at the smallest scales. They perform a wide range of critical functions and are crucial for the normal functioning of our body. Abnormal functioning of cilia result in a number of diseases jointly known as ciliopathies. Artificially mimicking motile cilia has been a long-standing challenge while inspiring the development of new materials and methods. Mimicking cilia is aimed at understanding their normal/ abnormal functionality and at developing cilia-inspired micro/ nano engineering devices. A magnetic elastomer preparation process coupled with a tailored molding process is developed for the successful fabrication of artificial cilia with submicron dimensions showing unprecedented deflection capabilities, enabling the design of artificial cilia with high motility and at sizes equal to those of their smallest biological counterparts. This has allowed to cross the barrier of nanoscale motile cilia fabrication, paving the way for maximum control and manipulation of structures and processes at micro and nano scales.

MechE Colloquium: 3D printed microoptics: State of the art and future challenges

Prof. Harald Giessen, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Stuttgart

Abstract:
3D printing using femtosecond lasers gives submicron resolution when polymerizing plastics by two-photon absorption. The small voxel size well below the diffraction limit and the combination with high-speed scanners and high-precision piezo stages allows for the creation of millimeter-sized 3D optics with unprecedented design freedom. We will demonstrate that such complex optics with aspherical and freeform surfaces without rotational symmetry can lead to novel miniature optics with wavefront aberrations as small as lambda/10. Multiple materials can be combined with different refractive indices and dispersions, thus allowing for Fraunhofer-type achromats. Diffractive optics can be 3D printed as well, and stacking several Fresnel-type surfaces leads to aplanatic imaging systems. Hybrids that combine diffractive and refractive surfaces as well as transparent and opaque materials enhance the imaging capabilities even further. When combined with imaging fibers or CMOS imaging sensors, an entire new class of miniature optical devices can be created which will revolutionize augmented and virtual reality as well as self-driving cars. Fiber-based optical trapping, side-looking OCT endoscopes, the smallest imaging endoscope in the world, as well as applications in quantum technology pave the way towards future functionalities and applications [1-7].

Learning Solutions to the Schrödinger equation with Neural-Network Quantum States

Prof. Giuseppe Carleo, EPFL

The theoretical description of several complex quantum phenomena fundamentally relies on many-particle wave functions and our ability to represent and manipulate them. Variational methods in quantum mechanics aim at compact descriptions of many-body wave functions in terms of parameterised ansatz states, and are at present living exciting transformative developments informed by ideas developed in machine learning. In this presentation I will discuss variational representations of quantum states based on artificial neural networks [1] and their use in approximately solving the Schrödinger equation. I will further highlight the general representation properties of such states, the crucial role of physical symmetries, as well as the connection with other known representations based on tensor networks [2]. Finally, I will discuss how some classic ideas in machine learning, such as the Natural Gradient, are being used and re-purposed in quantum computing applications [3].

More-predictive density functionals, symmetry breaking, and strong correlation
Approximate density functionals constructed to satisfy known mathematical properties of the exact density functional for the exchange-correlation energy of a many-electron system can be predictive over a wide range of materials and molecules. The strongly constrained and appropriately normed (SCAN) meta-generalized gradient approximation [1] satisfies 17 exact constraints, and nicely describes some systems that were formerly thought to be beyond the reach of density functional theory, such as the cuprates [2]. In some cases (e.g., barrier heights to chemical reactions and hydrogen bonds in water [3]), SCAN is dramatically more accurate when evaluated on the Hartree-Fock density than it is on its own self-consistent and more delocalizing density. Ground states that break the symmetry of a Coulomb-interacting Hamiltonian can be understood as dynamic density or spin-density fluctuations that drop to low or zero frequency [4,5] and so persist over long times. In many cases, symmetry breaking transforms the strong correlation in a symmetry-unbroken wavefunction into moderate correlation like that found in the uniform electron gas of high or valence-electron density (an “appropriate norm” for constraint-based approximations).

About the speaker
John Perdew’s research in the Hohenberg-Kohn-Sham density-functional theory of electronic structure has helped to establish this theory as the most widely-used method to predict the properties of atoms, molecules, and solids from the principles of quantum mechanics. A density functional is a formula that expresses the energy of a many-electron system in terms of its electron density, facilitating the easy computer calculation of both. Perdew and his collaborators have discovered some unexpected properties of the exact density functional, including its derivative discontinuity and scaling properties, and more recently a strongly-tightened lower bound on the exchange energy. They have also constructed a ladder of nonempirical approximations to the exact functional, on which higher rungs are more complex and more accurate.  In essence, they have been making educated guesses at the rule for “nature’s glue” that binds electrons into atoms and atoms into molecules and solids. They seek functionals that are rooted in physical principles and work reliably for atoms, molecules, solids, surfaces, and molecules on surfaces. Their functionals are built into standard computer codes, and are widely used by both physicists and chemists. Current research includes the development of better meta-generalized gradient approximations from a dimensionless ingredient that can recognize and assign appropriate descriptions to covalent, metallic, and weak bonds.
John Perdew earned his PhD from Cornell University. After postdoctoral fellowships at the Universities of Toronto and Rutgers, he was appointed faculty as the department of physics of Tulane University. Since 2013 he has been a professor at the department of physics of Temple University in Philadelphia.

MechE Colloquium: Multiscale Mechanics of Metal Plasticity

Prof. William A. Curtin, Laboratory for Multiscale Mechanics Modeling (LAMMM), Institute of Mechanical Engineering (IGM), School of Engineering (STI), EPFL

Abstract:
Due to their many attractive properties, especially plastic flow and consequent good ductility, metals are used in applications spanning the domains of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Civil Engineering.  The performance of metals depends, however, on material features across a wide range of scales, from macroscopic polycrystals down to the individual dislocations that carry the plastic displacements that generate macroscopic plasticity.  Understanding and predicting the mechanical properties of metals is thus intrinsically a multiscale problem.  After examining the general philosophy of multiscale modeling of mechanical properties, we examine (i) how metal plasticity is currently modeled at successively smaller scales, and (ii) why or when one must progress to lower scales that ultimately reach the domain of quantum mechanics.  We then note that fundamental mechanics principles are used at each scale of investigation; continuum, mesoscale, atomistic, statistical and quantum mechanics tools are all “mechanics”.  This puts mechanicians in excellent position to use the full range of tools to solve challenging technological problems.  As one specific example, we outline a multiscale model for mechanistic understanding and quantitative prediction of dynamic strain aging phenomena that limit the macroscopic ductility of the technologically valuable Aluminum Al-5xxx alloys.  The underlying dynamic phenomenon is atomistic, and requires quantum mechanics for quantitative accuracy.  But the effects of the underlying mechanism must be carried up to the scale of dislocation motion and dislocation interaction, from which a full transient thermo-kinetic constitutive model can be derived.  Such models must then be implemented in continuum finite element models to reveal how the atomistic phenomenon leads to reduced macroscopic ductility of standard test coupons over a range of temperatures and strain rates.  This mechanistic insight across scales enables the computationally-guided search for new alloys that will have higher ductility which widens the domain of applicability of these desirable lightweight metals.

Bio:
Professor Curtin earned a 4 yr. ScB/ScM degree in Physics from Brown University in 1981 and a PhD in theoretical physics from Cornell University in 1986.  He worked as staff researcher at British Petroleum until 1993 and then joined Virginia Tech as an Associate Professor in both Engineering Mechanics and Materials Science.  In 1998 he returned to Brown as Full Professor of Engineering in the Solid Mechanics group, where he was appointed Elisha Benjamin Andrews Professor in 2006.  He joined Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne as the Director of the Institute of Mechanical Engineering in 2011 and officially as Full Professor in 2012.  His research successes include predictive theories of optical properties of nanoparticles, statistical mechanics of freezing, hydrogen storage in amorphous metals, strength and toughness of fiber composites, dynamic strain aging and ductility in lightweight Al and Mg metal alloys, solute strengthening of metal alloys including high entropy alloys, and hydrogen embrittlement of metals, along with innovative multiscale modeling methods to tackle many of these problems.  Professor Curtin was a Guggenheim Fellow in 2005-06, was Editor-in-Chief of “Modeling and Simulation in Materials Science and Engineering” from 2006-2016, has published over 300 journal papers that have received over 20000 citations with an h-index of 78 (Google Scholar), and has been the Principal Investigator on well over $40M of funded research projects.

On Electrons and Machine Learning Force Fields

Machine Learning Force Fields (MLFF) should be accurate, efficient, and applicable to molecules, materials, and interfaces thereof. The first step toward ensuring broad applicability and reliability of MLFFs requires a robust conceptual understanding of how to map interacting electrons to interacting "atoms". Here I discuss two aspects: (1) how electronic interactions are mapped to atoms with a critique of the "electronic nearsightedness" principle, and (2) our developments of symmetry-adapted gradient-domain machine learning (sGDML) framework for MLFFs generally applicable for modeling of molecules, materials, and their interfaces. I highlight the key importance of bridging fundamental physical priors and conservation laws with the flexibility of non-linear ML regressors to achieve the challenging goal of constructing chemically-accurate force fields for a broad set of systems. Applications of sGDML will be presented for small and large (bio/DNA) molecules, pristine and realistic solids, and interfaces between molecules and 2D materials.

Campus Lecture : Frank Wilczek

Frank Wilczek

Frank Wilczek, Phycian (Nobel Prize for physics, 2004) - Online Campus Lecture

Fundamentals
A glance towards the night sky is enough to be seized by the immensity of the universe. These infinities of time, space, matter and energy are beyond comprehension, but are nevertheless governed by only a few rules and not much more by constituent elements. These are the same ones that we find at the heart of the living or the infinitely small. Nature is thus organized around fundamental principles, and it is to their joyful discovery that Frank Wilczek, Nobel Prize of physics, invites us.

IMX Seminar Series - Ab initio descriptors to guide materials design in high-dimensional chemical and structural configuration spaces

Prof. Jörg Neugebauer, Max-Planck-Institut, Germany

Modern engineering materials have evolved from simple single phase materials to nano-composites that employ dynamic mechanisms down to the atomistic scale. The structural and thermodynamic complexity of this new generation of structural materials presents a challenge to their design since experimental trial-and-error approaches as successfully used in the past are often no longer feasible. Ab initio approaches provide perfect tools to new design routes but face serious challenges when having to systematically sample high-dimensional chemical and structural configuration spaces. Combining advanced sampling approaches with our python based framework pyiron allows us in a highly automated way to combine first principles calculations with big data analytics and to obtain accurate ab initio descriptors. The flexibility and the power of these approaches will be demonstrated for a few examples: The design of ductile Mg alloys, overcoming mutually exclusive properties in high entropy alloys, and the discovery of general rules for interstitials in metals.

MechE Colloquium: Robust Design based on trade-off management in mechanical development

Prof. Tobias Eifler, Robust Design Research Group, Technical University of Denmark

Abstract:
Traditional Robust Design (RD) provides a well-established toolbox for the parametric exploration of a design space, which allows for reducing a design’s sensitivity towards different variation sources such as manufacturing tolerances, external noise factors, wear, etc. From a design perspective, however, this narrow focus on a parametric optimization of a fairly complete solution drastically limits the potential of the available tools as it disregards the importance of other design decisions (e.g. concept exploration, choice of suitable mechanical layouts, multidisciplinary design).

Against this background, the talk will review different modes of design change and the underlying drivers in order to illustrate how design in industrial practice is oftentimes depending on various approaches, including parameter space exploration, updated specifications, relaxed material or manufacturing constraints, etc. On this basis, we will then focus on trade-off management as one of the essential aspects in mechanical development and robust design. Using examples from the medical device industry, the talk will show how a systematic focus on design trade-offs, i.e. contradicting requirements or constraints that drastically limit the available design space, supports all design phases from an early assessment of product robustness, a systematic redesign and improvement of mechanical configurations, to the multi-objective optimization of matured embodiment solutions.

Bio:
Tobias Eifler is Associate Professor at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and group leader for DTU’s Robust Design research program. His research focuses on early stage Robust Design principles, design-trade-offs in mechanical configurations, and the question of robustness in highly integrated systems, e.g. medical applications. Tobias is involved in several active research projects in collaboration with the medical device industry in Denmark and co-chairs Robust Design special interest group in the Design Society (https://robust.designsociety.org/).

IMX Seminar Series - Atom-scale quantum choreography to the beat of light

Prof. Rupert Huber, Regensburg University, German

Understanding the function of novel quantum materials calls for means to directly watch their elementary building blocks in motion, on their intrinsic length and time scales. Recently, lightwave electronics has made this long-standing dream come true. The idea is to exploit the carrier wave of light as an ultrafast bias to interrogate and control the nanocosm. I will first review how lightwaves can drive electrons in solids, such as 2D materials and topological insulators, into surprising sub-cycle quantum motion. By combining this idea with the spatial resolution of scanning tunneling microscopy we record the first atom-scale slow-motion movies of individual vibrating molecules. Lightwaves inside the tunnelling junction can even serve as femtosecond atomic forces to choreo­graph a coherent structural motion of a single-molecule switch. This concept offers a radically new way of directly watching and controlling key elementary dynamics in nature and steer (bio)chemical reactions or ultrafast phase transitions, on their intrinsic spatio-temporal scales.

MechE Colloquium: Vibrating beam MEMS accelerometers for gravity and seismic measurements

Prof. Ashwin A. Seshia, Department of Engineering, Cambridge University

Abstract:
Advances in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have enabled the widespread development of sensors for a variety of consumer, automotive, and wearable healthcare electronics applications. However, there is increasing interest in the development of highly accurate MEMS inertial sensors for a variety of emerging applications, for e.g., navigation systems for pedestrians and autonomous vehicles, and seismic and gravity imaging, where the traditional attributes of MEMS (miniaturization and system integration) are combined with scalable transduction principles to enable highly accurate physical measurements. Resonant transducers and oscillatory systems have historically been employed to conduct some of the most precise physical measurements, and resonant approaches to measurement of forces and displacements in MEMS devices have enabled significant advances in accuracy of MEMS inertial sensors in recent years. This progress has been assisted by parallel advances in wafer-level encapsulation techniques, interface circuits, and approaches to mitigate temperature sensitivity, also applied to products in MEMS timing and frequency control. This talk will describe the evolution of vibrating beam MEMS accelerometers demonstrating exceptional long-term stability for applications in gravimetry and seismology. Device sensitivity and stability is demonstrated through the tracking of Earth tides and recording of ground motion corresponding to a number of seismic events. These results demonstrate the potential of vibrating beam MEMS accelerometers for high-resolution and stable measurements with wider implications for precision measurement employing other resonant-output MEMS devices such as gyroscopes and magnetometers.

CIS - Colloque : par Prof. Susan Murphy

  Prof Susan Murphy

Titre : Nous avons utilisé l'apprentissage par renforcement, mais cela a-t-il fonctionné ?

Résumé : L'apprentissage par renforcement fournit une suite attrayante de méthodes d'apprentissage en ligne pour personnaliser les interventions dans le cadre de la santé numérique.  Cependant, après l'exécution d'un algorithme d'apprentissage par renforcement dans une étude clinique, comment évaluer si la personnalisation a eu lieu ? Nous pourrions trouver des utilisateurs pour lesquels il semble que l'algorithme a effectivement appris dans quels contextes l'utilisateur est plus sensible à une intervention particulière. Mais cela peut-il être le fruit du hasard ? Nous discutons de quelques premières approches pour répondre à ces questions. 

Bio : Susan A. Murphy, professeur de statistiques, professeur d'informatique à la Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences et Radcliffe Alumnae Professor au Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University.
