Upcoming Podcast - Unified Mechanics Theory
Cemal is a Professor in the Dept. of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering at University at Buffalo, The State University of New York. He specializes in computational and experimental mechanics of electronic materials. He has authored 150 + peer reviewed journal publications, a textbook on Unified Mechanics Theory, and several book chapters.
👉 Set a reminder here!
In this podcast, we talked about:
Newton’s laws of motion 🧑🔬
Why Newton’s laws are incomplete 📘
Boltzmann Theory & Unified Mechanics Theory 📝
Using Abaqus as a modelling tool (UMAT) 💻
Academic & Career advice 🎓
3 Things to Change about classical education 🏫
and much more…
Should a self-driving car kill the baby or the grandma? Depends on where you’re from!
A new paper published in Nature presents the analysis of that data and reveals how much cross-cultural ethics diverge on the basis of culture, economics, and geographic location.
AutoDropout: Learning Dropout Patterns to Regularize Deep Networks
Neural networks are often over-parameterized and hence benefit from aggressive regularization. Conventional regularization methods, such as Dropout or weight decay, do not leverage the structures of the network's inputs and hidden states. This method works well for both image recognition on CIFAR-10 and ImageNet, as well as language modeling on Penn Treebank and WikiText-2. The learned dropout patterns also transfers to different tasks and datasets, such as from language model on Penn Treebank to Engligh-French translation on WMT 2014. Our code will be available.

Book of the Week
Data-Driven Science and Engineering: Machine Learning, Dynamical Systems, and Control
Data-driven discovery is revolutionizing the modeling, prediction, and control of complex systems. This textbook brings together machine learning, engineering mathematics, and mathematical physics to integrate modeling and control of dynamical systems with modern methods in data science. It highlights many of the recent advances in scientific computing that enable data-driven methods to be applied to a diverse range of complex systems, such as turbulence, the brain, climate, epidemiology, finance, robotics, and autonomy. Aimed at advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in the engineering and physical sciences, the text presents a range of topics and methods from introductory to state of the art.
