Brown Bag
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Speaker: Amy Quandt
Title: "Building livelihood resilience in semi-arid Kenya: what role does agroforestry play?"
SEEC S216
CompSci Colloquium: David Crandall (IU Bloomington)
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Egocentric Computer Vision, for Fun and Science

ABSTRACT: New sources of large-scale visual data raise both opportunities and challenges for computer vision. For example, each of the nearly trillion photos on Facebook is an observation of what the world looked like at a particular point in time and space, and what a particular photographer was paying attention to. Meanwhile, low-cost wearable cameras (like GoPro) are entering the mainstream, allowing people to record and share their lives from a first-person, "egocentric" perspective. How can vision help people organize these (and other) vast but noisy datasets? What could mining these rich datasets reveal about ourselves and about the world in general? 

In this talk, Crandall will describe recent work investigating these questions, focusing on two lines of work on egocentric imagery as examples. The first is for consumer applications, where the goal is to develop automated classifiers to help categorize lifelogging images across several dimensions. The second is an interdisciplinary project using computer vision with wearable cameras to study parent-child interactions in order to better understand child learning. Despite the different goals, these applications share common themes of robustly recognizing image content in noisy, highly dynamic, unstructured imagery.

BIO: David Crandall is an associate professor in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University Bloomington, where he is a member of the programs in Computer Science, Informatics, Cognitive Science, and Data Science, and of the Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research. He received the PhD in computer science from Cornell University in 2008 and the MS and BS degrees in computer science and engineering from Pennsylvania State University in 2001. He was a postdoctoral research associate at Cornell from 2008-2010, and a senior research scientist with Eastman Kodak Company from 2001-2003. He received an NSF CAREER Award in 2013 and a Google Faculty Research Award in 2014.

Event Image Ethics & Compliance Brown Bag: Graduate Student Accommodations
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

February’s monthly Brown Bag event will feature a presentation by John Meister, Jill Sieben-Schneider and Joe Andenmatten from Disability Services on the subject of graduate student accommodations. Disability Services has a mission to ensure students with disabilities receive reasonable accommodations and services to participate fully in the academic environment. Faculty and staff often have questions about how to address student needs. The Disability Services staff is committed to working collaboratively with faculty at all levels in order to assist in creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students.

In their presentation, the team will share how Disability Services works to support students as well as the faculty members who are responsible for implementing the accommodations. They will also detail what legal responsibilities faculty members have as well as the tools faculty members can use to create an inclusive environment in their classrooms and research labs. Attendees will gain valuable insight on related topics such as best practices in working with Disability Services students and as part of universal design of instruction. During the hour session, ample time will be provided for audience Q&A.

Special Physics Colloquium, "Top quarks & beyond at the Large Hadron Collider"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Louise Skinnari, CERN
NOTE SPECIAL LOCATION: DUAN G130

Abstract: The first run of the Large Hadron Collider has been a great success, most notably with the discovery of the Higgs boson. Despite the continued triumph of the Standard Model, important questions about how nature works on small scales remain unanswered. Top quarks, the most massive of all known elementary particles, play a central role in many of the extensions to the Standard Model that have been proposed to address these questions. A precise understanding of top quarks and their production and properties is therefore critical. In this talk, I will discuss the motivation and status of top quark physics at the LHC, presenting recent results from the CMS experiment. I will additionally give an outlook to the future upgrade of the LHC.
