Breakfast Series with Vivienne Sze
Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 8:00am to 9:30am
Emma Rogers Room, 10-340 77 Massachusetts Avenue
Twice–yearly women in the MIT community are invited to informal "breakfast talks." Known as the Breakfast Series, they are occasions when women faculty and administrators explore the role of women in the academy, sharing the pathways their professional lives have taken — the people and events that have influenced their direction.
Vivienne Sze our Fall speaker is an associate professor at MIT in the electrical engineering and computer science department. Her research interests include energy-aware signal processing algorithms, and low-power circuit and system design for portable multimedia applications. Prior to joining MIT, she was a member of technical staff in the R&D Center at Texas Instruments (TI), where she designed low-power algorithms and architectures for video coding.
She received the Jin-Au Kong Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Prize in electrical engineering at MIT in 2011. She is also a recipient of the 2017 CICC Outstanding Invited Paper award, the 2017 Qualcomm Faculty Award, the 2016 IEEE Micro Top Picks award and the 2016 Google Faculty Research Award.
Prof Sze is developing energy efficient hardware optimized for AI that will allow us to move intelligence computing from the Cloud to Edge devices.
Breakfast is served promptly at 8:00am. Cost is $12 per person. Please email email@example.com to reserve, and to note any dietary restrictions.
