[2010.07.05] 史志杰教授来我中心作学术报告

应智网中心邀请,美国康涅狄格大学史志杰教授2010.7.2来中心做了题目为《Towards Comprehensive Countermeasures to Power Analysis Attacks》演讲。

摘要:Towards Comprehensive Countermeasures to Power Analysis Attacks

Cryptographic algorithms are critical elements of the security of computer systems. They are used to achieve basic security functions such as confidentiality, data integrity, and authentication. Evident by enormous numbers of successful attacks, simply adopting cryptographic algorithms does not ensure the security of the system. The implementations of cryptographic algorithms are as important as the design. During a cryptographic operation, computer systems leak a lot of side-channel information, including timing, power, electromagnetic radiation, visible light, error message, etc. Side-channel attacks exploit the side-channel information from the implementation to obtain the secret data that have been processed. They are very effective even if the cryptographic algorithms are secure against the conventional attacks based on mathematical analysis of the input and output data. In this presentation, we discuss several techniques that mitigate power analysis attacks, including window-based countermeasure for elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) and register file with redundant flipped copies.

Professor Shi received USA NSF CAREER award in 2006. His current research interests include hardware mechanisms for secure and reliable computing, side channel attacks and countermeasures, primitives for ultra-efficient cipher designs, sensor network security, application specific instruction-set instruction processor(ASIP) and embedded system designs, and underwater sensor networks.

摘要:Finding multiple Nash equilibria in a spot market: an EPEC approach

In competitive electricity markets, generating companies (GENCOs) offer their energy offers simultaneously to obtain the maximum profit on a daily basis. We find the optimal solution to the individual GENCO’s problem using a bilevel noncooperative game model, implemented as a Mathematical Problem with Equilibrium Constraints (MPEC). We also show that the market equilibrium, where each GENCO solves its own MPEC problem, can be set as an Equilibrium Problem with Equilibrium Constraints (EPEC). The nonconvex and nonlinear EPEC is approximated by a MILP problem. A search methodology is implemented to find the multiple Nash equilibria by adding linear constrains to the EPEC. Finally we show some examples to illustrate our MPEC and EPEC models.

摘要:Human-Robot Interactive Decision-Making

Profitable integration of human and robot decision-making dynamics should take advantage of strengths of human decision-makers as well as strengths of robotic agents. A major challenge in achieving this goal is understanding how humans make decisions and what are their associated strengths and weaknesses. Correspondingly, a central tenet of this work is to leverage the experimental and modeling work of psychologists and behavioral scientists on human decision-making. We focus on a well-studied class of sequential binary decision-making tasks. We introduce a decision-making problem associated with a collective robotic foraging task that integrates human and robotic decision making dynamics with feedback. To explore the integrated decision dynamics, we present two models of human decision-making and with these models we prove convergence of the human behavior to the observed aggregate decision-making. We also show how adaptive laws for the robot feedback that use only local information can be applied to help the human make optimal decisions.

应我中心赵千川教授邀请,来自美国MIT大学的Dimitri P. Bertsekas教授于2009年6月30日上午10时在中央主楼511作了题为《近似动态规划及应用》的学术报告。报告由中心主任管晓宏教授主持。我中心及我系其他研究所的多名学生参加了报告。报告内容丰富详实,引起了大家浓厚的兴趣。听众与Dimitri P. Bertsekas教授进行了广泛和深入的讨论。

摘要:近似动态规划及应用

Dynamic programming is a very general optimization method for sequential decision making, with many practical applications in engineering design, operations research, optimal resource allocation, automatic control, dynamic planning, economics and finance, and combinatorial optimization. Among optimization methods, it has the broadest range of applications: deterministic, stochastic, discrete, and continuous problems. However, it suffers from the curse of dimensionality: an exponential growth of computational requirements as the problem size increases.

This has led to extensive work over the last twenty years on the methodology of neuro-dynamic programming reinforcement learning, which is based on various types of approximations and simulation, and can deal with problems of very large size. One key idea is to construct off-line, using simulation, an (approximate) scoring function which is used in real-time to rank decisions at any system state that may arise. This is much like what is done in computer chess and computer backgammon, where positions are evaluated by means of a scoring function, and the move that leads to the position with the best score is chosen. Another important idea is to use simulation and/or heuristics to compute on-line the values of an approximate scoring function. This talk will overview these methodologies, emphasizing on-line methods. A followup talk will emphasize off-line methods, and discuss recent extensions to Monte-Carlo methods for approximate solution of large systems of equations arising in broader scientific computation contexts.

摘要:序优化与最优计算量分配

Ordinal Optimization (OO) has emerged as an efficient technique for simulation and optimization. Exponential convergence rates can be achieved in many cases. Optimal Computing Budget Allocation (OCBA) is developed to maximize the computational efficiency by determining the optimal computing resource allocation among a fixed set of simulated designs, no matter the goal is to find the best design and a subset of good designs. OCBA can further enhance the efficiency of OO for stochastic simulation optimization. In this talk, we will present the basic idea of OCBA and its recent development. By integrating with search methods such as Nested Partition scheme invented by Prof. Shi, OCBA can effectively handle large-scale simulation optimization.

摘要:嵌套分区方法的进展

In this talk, we present two research results: 1) a new framework that integrates lower-bound and upper-bound methods into the Nested Partitions (NP) method. We have applied this method to a very difficult lot sizing problem-- the Multi-Item Capacitated Lot-Sizing Problems with Set-Up Times. The problem is to schedule N different items with given machine capacities over a finite horizon of T periods. Computational results based on benchmark test problems show that our method is computationally tractable and outperforms all other state-of-the-art approaches found in the literature.2) our ongoing work on the development of Stochastic Lower Bound with Extreme Value theory. We propose statistical promising indexes for Nested Partitions based on the implementation of the extreme value theory. We further develop an approach to estimate the correctness of NP moves, which can be very useful in determining a good algorithm setting. An additional benefit of using the statistical promising index in NP is that statistical bounds can be obtained with little computational burden. These bounds are problem-independent and can be handy to use when traditional bounding techniques are ineffective. Initial results are also presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method

6月4日下午3:00,我中心讲席教授组成员、康涅狄格大学电机与计算机工程系教授、系主任陆宝森教授在中央主楼511房间作了题为《Toward a New Framework for Population-Based Optimization Methods》的学术报告,报告由我中心主任管晓宏教授主持。袁睿翕教授王凌教授贾庆山博士及多名学生参加了报告。报告引起了大家浓厚的兴趣,听众与陆宝森教授进行了广泛和深入的讨论。

摘要:Toward a New Framework for Population-Based Optimization Methods

Combinatorial optimization problems arise in many applications, e.g., task assignment, facility location, and elevator scheduling. A variety of population-based methods have been used to solve these problems, such as genetic algorithm (GA), particle swarm optimization (PSO), estimation of distribution algorithms (EDA), and nested partitions (NP). Some of them, however, lack global convergence guarantee such as PSO, or require strict convergence assumptions such as NP. To enhance these methods in terms of convergence, a novel framework towards unifying the seemingly unrelated methods is established as iterative sampling and updating of a population distribution, and the methods that fit into this framework are called population distribution-based methods. Global convergence conditions for this framework are innovatively developed by building a shadow NP structure for the population evolution process. The result is generic and is capable of covering or enhancing the current convergence results of many methods including GA, PSO, EDA, and NP. It can be further exploited to improve algorithm performance or computational efficiency, and opens up a new door to re-examine old methods and create new ones.

[2008.12.22] 赵千川教授接受爱思唯尔(Elsevier)的采访

(摘自张玉国学者博客)

清华大学东门口的星巴克,被我们称作“爱思唯尔清华办公室”,一方面折射出爱思唯尔与清华大学长久的合作关系,另一方面也反映我们远离海淀大学区,没有一个落脚之处,开会、见人之前,都会在这里稍留片刻。

这次来清华主要目的是对《清华大学学报》的一次年终例行拜访。浏览清华大学的网页,忽然想起何毓琦教授在博客里提到的“智能与网络化系统研究中心”(简称智网中心,CFINS)。我曾经与中心副主任赵千川教授有过邮件交往,相约在合适的时间见见面。冒然给赵老师打了一个电话,没想到他很爽快地答应了。

下午1点40在FIT大楼赵老师的办公室见到他。赵老师很年青,看简历34岁就已经是清华大学正教授了。这是一次非正式的会面,除了智网中心的历史,我主要就科研评价、科研人员搜集使用信息的习惯和难点等几个方面请教了赵老师。

赵老师很健谈,给我介绍了一些很有用的情况,也出了一些很好的主意。比如在谈到科研评价体系时,他建议我们与教育部有关部门合作,利用掌握全球四分之一全文文献和SCOPUS这样强大的二次文献数据库的优势,帮助中国建立比较客观的评价体系,至少提供有用的参照系。

在谈到如何帮助科研人员提高搜集使用文献信息的效率时,他建议我们关注国际学术会议,尽快出版会议录,给科研人员提供研究方便。因为国际学术会议是发布IDEA的地方,到这个IDEA成为正式的文章发表在正式的期刊上,通常需要很长一段时间。IDEA可以不完善,但很可能刺激科研人员的创造性。这个建议与我们的想法不谋而合,爱思唯尔正在开发一个新产品Procedia,就是要在最快的时间内把会议录放到电子平台上。

回来的路上,想到这一天还是很有收获的。我最不愿意整天坐在办公室里,收发邮件,上上网,时间很快消磨过去,但却不产生多少效益。人与人的交流是很重要的,多见见客户,多见见科研人员,每天都能学到新东西。日积月累,不但对科研这一行有了更深的认识,而且为将来做决策提供了更多的依据。同时也觉得在科学网上开博客很有收获,交了新朋友,扩大了信息量。如果不是何先生的博客,我是很难知道清华有智网中心的,估计认识赵老师的概率也基本是零。人生机缘巧合如此,令人感叹。

摘要: Advanced Planning / Scheduling (APS) in Semiconductor Manufacturing: Challenges and Opportunities

Semiconductor manufacturing is a highly competitive business due to complicated production processes, sophisticated equipment, and fluctuating demand. I summarize the challenges and opportunities of semiconductor manufacturing and provide my thoughts on the solution with three applications for case study.As an example of planning optimization, I describe a planning methodology to generate a complete capacity planning solution using mixed-integer linear programming (MILP). This methodology has been successfully implemented in Intel’s global semiconductor assembly and test manufacturing (ATM) since 2004.As an example of queuing modeling, I analyze the correlations between the arrival and the service processes and their impact on cycle time.As an example of simulation, I model a supply chain from fabs, assembly & test sites, to distribution centers for a typical product family. I conduct detailed sensitivity analysis and identify the tens of million USD cost saving opportunities through subcon consolidation and a centralized die hub.

[2008.10.22] 香港科技大学的丘立教授来我中心作学术报告

管晓宏教授邀请,2008年10月22日下午14:30,来自香港科技大学的丘立教授在FIT大楼的1-515房间,作了题为《Measure of Instability and Multivariable Networked Stabilization with Channel Resource Allocation》的学术报告,报告由我中心主任管晓宏教授主持。自动化系慕春棣教授、李春文教授、李力讲师和我中心贾庆山讲师,以及中心和我系多名学生参加了报告。报告引起了大家浓厚的兴趣,听众与丘立教授进行了广泛和深入的讨论。

摘要: Measure of Instability and Multivariable Networked Stabilization with Channel Resource Allocation

In this talk, we will survey the history of an instability measure of an LTI system and its connections with various feedback control problem. Then we will present its connections to networked control problems of multivariable systems. In such problems, communication resource allocation among various signal transmission channels becomes a design issue in addition to the usual controller design. We will see that some optimal and robust control problems arising in networked control are nontraditional and highly nonconvex but can be nicely and analytically solved, and the solutions are given in terms of the instability measure. The results to be reported are the recent findings in the joint research with Professor Guoxiang Gu of LSU.
