Data, Algorithms, Justice, and Fairness Public Lecture April 21

Data, Algorithms, Justice, and Fairness Public Lecture on April 21 at 5:30pm in Physical Sciences Center, Room 201. Algorithms are being used to decide whether defendants will show up for court, whether they should be released on bail, and whether they will be good citizens if they are given parole. How accurate are these algorithms? What data are they based on? And how fair are they to different subgroups of the population? Over the past few years, a controversy has erupted over the issue of algorithmic fairness – whether these algorithms treat some people differently than others. We will go through how these algorithms work, what they are based on, and how “fairness” and “accuracy” are slippery terms. Can decisions made by AI be explained to the humans affected by them? What recourse do we have if we disagree with them? Will algorithms help us move forward to a better future, or will they encode and enshrine the biases of the past?

Mathematics of Data Public Lecture Monday, April 4

This Mathematics of Data Public Lecture on April 4 at 5:30pm in Physical Sciences Center, Room 201 focuses on how to go from finite data to the identification of a periodic orbit using algebraic topology. With today's technology, we can collect massive high-dimensional sets of data from experiments and generate massive high-dimensional sets of data numerically, but at the end of the day, these are still finite sets of points. Assume that we are trying to understand a continuous process that generated the data. One such example could be a process that can be modeled by a differential equation. In this case we probably want to be able to extract a continuous function, which raises the question, "How can one go from finite data to continuum objects with some sense of certainty?"

Transport Transforms for Data Analysis and Machine Learning Lecture Tuesday, March 22

Public Lecture as part of the "The Mathematics of Data" Presidential Dream course on March 22 at 5:30pm in Physical Sciences Center, Room 201.Transforms are mathematical machines that reorganize data, signals, or images in new configurations that allow a better understanding and manipulation of the data. For example, to store an image on a computer, the image is first sampled on a grid and then transformed into a set of binary numbers (zeros and ones) that are then stored on a chip. There are many types of transforms, so they can be selected based on the type of data and what one wants to do with it. Recently, new transforms have been developed that are based on optimal transport theory. These transforms are well-suited for many applications and have outperformed state-of-the-art methods. This talk presents several applications including cell morphology in drug discovery, nuclear structure in cancer, and MRI for knee cartilage in the prognosis of osteoarthritis.

7th International Conference on Disaster Management and Human Health: Reducing Risk, Improving Outcomes

10–12 November 2021
Online

Disaster Management 2021 will take place online and will include:

>>> Live-streamed Q&A with the presenters <<<

>>> Reduced registration fees <<<

Disaster Management 2021 is organised by the Wessex Institute, UK and the University of Rome "La Sapienza". It is sponsored by WIT Transactions on the Built Environment.

This series of conferences originated with the need for academia and practitioners to exchange knowledge and experience on the way to handle the increasing risk of natural and human-made disasters. Recent major earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, floods and other natural phenomena have resulted in huge losses in terms of human life and property destruction. A new range of human-made disasters have afflicted humanity in modern times; terrorist activities have been added to more classical disasters such as those due to the failure of industrial installations for instance.

Distinguished Research Lecture Series

March 19, 2021 at 12:00pm CDT 

E. Michael Campbell, the director of the Laboratory for Laser Energetics at the University of Rochester, will summarize the present state of nuclear power (fission and fusion) and a vision for the future in a lecture on “Nuclear Energy: Today and Tomorrow” via Zoom. As the world evolves to carbon-free energy – in addition to renewables – central, concentrated energy sources that can be placed in proximity to cities will also be required. Advanced nuclear fission sources that require no active safety systems, that can be economical at output powers less than 100 MW, and can be deployed within a decade will almost certainly play a major role in a “reduced carbon” future. In the longer term, significant advances in nuclear fusion, both with magnetic and inertial confinement approaches, have also occurred and will increasingly become part of the “energy dialogue for the future.” Sponsored by Office of the Vice President for Research and Partnerships.

                                   Education for the DEA Museum, with a panel of DEA agents who participated

                                   in the operation.

BACKGROUND:      

Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, commonly known as “El Chapo” (shorty in English) founded the Sinaloa cartel in 1980 and smuggled hundreds of tons of illicit drugs into the U.S. for decades until his final capture in 2017. His ruthless career left scores dead in his wake, and he raked up a fortune worth at least 12 billion dollars along the way.

Guzmán escaped from maximum security Mexican prisons in 2001 and 2015. He maintained his grip on power and evaded law enforcement for years through savage murders by his sicario (hit men), extortion, and corruption that notoriously involved the complicity of many Mexican authorities at all levels. He was once named by Forbes Magazine as one of the most powerful people in the world, and his long criminal career only came to an end after a multi-year joint investigation and pursuit by Mexican authorities, DEA, and other U.S. authorities.

In this installment of the DEA Museum & Visitor’s Center lecture series, the panelists will discuss what it was like to be there during the pursuit of El Chapo, and their contributions to the capture of this notorious figure. Sign language interpreters will be available for this presentation.

The Drug Enforcement Administration Museum produces a series of educational lectures annually. The lecture series is designed to inform and educate the public in matters related to the mission of DEA and the DEA Museum & Visitors Center. Lecture topics include drug trends, science and forensics, collection objects, the exploits and accomplishments of the men and women of DEA, and more.
