Event Image Special Engagement: "To Space and Back"
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

“To Space & Back” takes audiences on an incredible journey from the far reaches of our known universe to our own planet. It is an extraordinary story of human ingenuity and incredible engineering, describing how the technology that transports us through space is paving the way for the devices and apps we use every day. Our curiosity and desire to see farther have generated two parallel stories: one reaching out into the depths of space and time, and the other reaching back down to our story here on Earth. “To Space & Back,” narrated by James May, explores the way each of us has been changed by the discoveries made by the international space program. From the devices we use every day to the tools that are breaking new ground in medicine and engineering, we can thank space exploration for making our modern lives possible.

This Fiske Special Event will be shown in full 8192x8192 pixel, 60 frames per second video with surround-sound audio. Fiske’s 8K projection system is among the finest in the world, and there are few equals, anywhere. “To Space & Back” is one of the few films that can truly demonstrate just what our magnificent theater can do, in its full-resolution glory. Come see it!”

It’s important to know who you are and what you have to offer.  Taking assessments is a great place to start as it will increase your level of self-awareness and help you know which career path is right for you.  By the end of the series, you’ll have more clarity regarding which career paths will be the best match based on your personality, interests, strengths and values.  You will have an understanding of your transferable skills, accomplishments, as well as knowledge of how to market yourself.

StrengthsFinder 
Measures the presence of talent in 34 areas called “themes.”  This assessment points to your greatest talents and potential strengths.  The results given will be a description of your five Signature Talents. 

Values Card Sort

"Computational Challenges in Large-Scale Social Networks"

Abstract:
Problems involving social networks and massive social datasets motivate some of the most difficult computational challenges today, and there is a pressing demand for understanding the structure of these problems. The design and measurement of social networks is commonly studied for properties shared with other networks, when in fact many aspects are specifically characteristics of social contexts. The spread of ideas is often studied as an epidemiological process, but very little research has examined how individuals make social decisions when adopting ideas. In the online world, experimentation using A/B tests does not account for social interference between treatment units, making it poorly suited for many studies on social networks. In this talk I will present research on these challenges (social structure, social contagion, social experimentation), developing computational approaches adapted to understanding the structure of social networks and social processes, and also to impacting the design of large-scale online social systems.

Bio:
Johan Ugander is a Ph.D. candidate at Cornell University, advised by Jon Kleinberg. His research develops tools for analyzing massive social graphs and other large-scale social data, aiming to provide a better understanding of social structure and human decision making while also impacting the design of large-scale computational systems. He is the recipient of the WSDM '13 Best Student Paper Award and the WebSci '12 Best Paper Award, and his work has been featured in popular-media outlets including The New York Times, The Economist, NPR, and Wired.

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

The constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) was thought to have been settled at the Supreme Court in June 2012, but Jonathan Adler begs to differ.

Adler and other legal scholars have noticed several additional legal defects that are currently making their way through the federal courts.  An adverse ruling on the provision of state subsidies could unravel the entire edifice, but additional defects await legal scrutiny.

He will make this case in a public talk on campus. Adler appears at the invitation of Steven Hayward, CU-Boulder’s Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy.

Adler is the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Business Law and Regulation at Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland.  A specialist in environmental, administrative, and constitutional law, he is the author or editor of four books on environmental policy and more than a dozen book chapters.

His articles have appeared in publications ranging from the Harvard Environmental Law Review and Supreme Court Economic Review to The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post.

Adler is a contributing editor to National Review Online and a regular contributor to the popular legal blog “The Volokh Conspiracy” (http://volokh.com), how hosted by the Washington Post.

"HIGH-IMPACT RESEARCH: BLENDING BASIC & APPLIED METHODS"

DLC 170
Wednesday, March 12
12-1pm

Abstract:
Vannevar Bush’s 1945 book Science: The Endless Frontier, made a sharp distinction between basic (or pure) and applied research, urging strong government support for academic basic research and warning that “applied research invariably drives out pure”. He also suggested the “linear model” in which basic research leads to applied research, and then commercial development. These biased views are still widely held, so a fresh analysis is needed to repair the damage and to provide a guiding framework for scientific researchers across many disciplines.

The High-Impact Research framework integrates current concepts that have been voiced by many people:
• Science research projects that address basic and applied questions, seek theoretical and practical outcomes, and are inspired by curiosity-driven as well as mission-driven goals are likely to have the greatest payoffs.
• These increased expectations may require teamwork from interdisciplinary participants and from those who are skilled with multiple research methods: randomized controlled trials, ethnographic case studies, automatic logging, retrospective analysis, etc. Teamwork can be difficult, but has a stronger possibility of producing breakthrough results.
• Since complex problems are resistant to reductionist approaches and small laboratory controlled experiments, high-impact can be achieved by using new research methods that depend on interventions that are evaluated in large-scale systems. Such repeated interventions constitute case studies that can provide evidence to support or falsify hypotheses. Guidelines for promoting and reporting rigorous case studies will accelerate progress.

Event Image Elephant Poaching and Ivory Smashing: A Colorado Cause
7:00 PM - 7:30 PM

A Short Documentary Screening and Panel Discussion

The historic ivory smashing at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal in Denver, the first of its kind in the United States, is the focus of short films produced for OnEarth.org and The Guardian by graduate students and their advisor at the University of Colorado-Boulder. These films will be screened at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History and will be followed by a panel discussion on the politics and economics of the illegal ivory trade and the ivory smashing event at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal in 2013. In addition, the panelists will discuss the controversial nature of ivory smashing - does destroying ivory actually reduce demand and slow the rate of ivory poaching?

For more information on one documentary, please check out the article Student Documentary Captures Ivory Crush for OnEarth.

The Best Practices of Writing Explained— or, at the Least, Identified!
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

(Held in Fleming 150)  Everyone, it seems, has words of advice when it comes to writing, but what advice is really useful? This one-hour tutorial will explore examples of advice, perhaps even seeing what common points might, in fact, be more than this-or-that person's opinion. At issue is whether we can identify common "best practices" for any occasion you face it school. When you leave the tutorial, the idea is that you then apply these practices for greater success in and progress through your studies.

3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

"Sensing Planning for Robotic Environmental Monitoring: Systems and Algorithms"

Abstract:
Data collected from the environment is becoming increasingly important for studying complex phenomena such as climate change. Robotic sensing systems will revolutionize this area by enabling access to data gathered at unprecedented spatio-temporal scales. Environmental science applications, in turn, motivate challenging robotics research problems. In this talk, I will present new algorithms for sensing planning problems motivated by these applications, and the design of robotic monitoring systems developed for two real-world applications.

In the first part, I will present the design of an autonomous robotic system developed for monitoring invasive fish in lakes. In the second part, we will focus on the algorithmic aspects of the art gallery problem, a classical camera placement problem, under constraints motivated by surveillance and visual monitoring. The standard formulation does not take into account self-occlusions of an object-of-interest within the environment. We will formulate the art gallery problem to guarantee that despite self-occlusions, any convex object present anywhere in the environment will be seen from all sides. I will present bounds and approximation algorithms for placing cameras under these constraints. In the third part, I will describe a robotic data collection system for precision agriculture. We will study the problem of planning energy-aware trajectories for collaborative aerial and ground robots in the context of this application. Throughout the talk, along with theoretical results, I will present experiments conducted with autonomous boats in Minnesota lakes, wheeled robots operating on frozen lakes, and an aerial robot operating over a corn plot.
