11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Personal Sustainability Workshop: How You Work Is Just as Important as What You Do
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

If you’re draining yourself in the process of getting the job done, that’s not sustainable—for you or your organization. Yet, with increasing pressure to do more with less, how can you work in natural, healthy ways to ensure you fulfill your purpose without draining your most important resource—you? In this interactive session, we’ll talk about how to use the obstacles and challenges you face in your job to gain insight and new ideas about what you can change and practical ways to do that right where you are.        

Lunch is provided and sponsored by Elevations Credit Union. Presented by Christine Gust. To register Email Connie North at Connie.North@colorado.edu

CompSci Colloquium: Claire Monteleoni (George Washington University)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Machine Learning Algorithms for Climate Informatics, Sustainability and Social Good

ABSTRACT: Despite the scientific consensus on climate change, drastic uncertainties remain. Crucial questions about regional climate trends, changes in extreme events, such as heat waves and mega-storms, and understanding how climate varied in the distant past, must be answered in order to improve predictions, assess impacts and vulnerability, and inform sustainable strategies for mitigation and adaptation. Machine learning can help answer such questions and shed light on climate change. 

Monteleoni will give an overview of her climate informatics research: machine learning for the study of climate science. Similar to the case of bioinformatics, climate informatics provides a data-rich scientific domain in which machine learning can make a major impact. Further, questions in climate science give rise to new challenges for the design of machine learning algorithms. More broadly, any real-world data source can be massive, high-dimensional, streaming, time-varying, raw (unlabeled), sparse, or private; or combine these and other attributes. Monteleoni will survey her research program on developing machine learning algorithms to address such challenges, and applying them to societally impactful problems. She will center the discussion on our contributions to improving predictions of climate change trends from ensembles of climate model simulations, and improving the understanding of climate extremes. Along the way, she will describe her work on machine learning algorithms for non-stationary spatiotemporal data, and scaling up unsupervised learning to big data.

BIO: Claire Monteleoni is an assistant professor of Computer Science at George Washington University. Previously, she was research faculty at the Center for Computational Learning Systems, at Columbia University. She did a postdoc in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of California, San Diego, and completed her PhD and master’s in Computer Science at MIT. She holds a bachelor’s in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Harvard. Her research focuses on machine learning algorithms and theory for learning from data streams, spatiotemporal data, raw (unlabeled) data, and private data, and applications with societal benefit. Monteleoni’s research is supported by several grants from the National Science Foundation. Her research on machine learning for the study of climate science received the Best Application Paper Award at NASA CIDU 2010, and helped launch the interdisciplinary field of climate informatics. In 2011, she co-founded the International Workshop on Climate Informatics, which is now in its seventh year (held at NCAR in Boulder), attracting climate scientists and data scientists from over 19 countries and 30 U.S. states. Monteleoni has given invited talks on climate informatics at the AGU Fall Meeting (2013, 2015), and an invited tutorial at NIPS 2014. She has co-organized workshops on Machine Learning for Global Challenges, at ICML 2011, and Data Science for Social Good, at KDD 2014. In 2017, she is serving as a Senior Area Chair for NIPS, on the Senior Program Committees for AISTATS and UAI, on the Editorial Board of the Machine Learning Journal, as a Senior Advisory Member of the Executive Board of the Workshop for Women in Machine Learning, and on the Steering Committee of the Climate Informatics Workshop.

Event Image Book release: Enduring Vietnam: An American Generation and Its War by James Wright
6:30 PM - 9:30 PM

The human face of combat is on full display in James Wright’s new book. Based upon personal accounts and 160 interviews with veterans and their families, Wright forms a complete picture of the complicated and ambivalent nature of this war, and the young people involved: who they were, what they did in battle, and what their sacrifices meant.

“These personal stories illustrate my strong belief that accounts of war need to be more than critical analyses of national presumptions and strategic goals, and more than studies of the tactics, objectives, and results of the conduct of the military operations on the ground,” says Wright. “These are all part of the story of war. But they seldom remind us of the human experience—and the human cost.”

Books will be for sale at the event and the author will be available for signing.

The President Emeritus of Dartmouth College and a former marine, James Wright has served in a number of ways to remind Americans of the face of war. His book, Those Who Have Borne the Battle: A History of America’s Wars and Those Who Fought Them (2012) explored the complex relationship between the American public and its veterans. In addition to working on these books, he has helped establish educational counseling programs for wounded veterans, paid countless visits to military hospitals, has written a number of op-ed pieces on the current American wars, provided interviews and spoken at a number of public programs and forums, and participated in the 2016 Ric Burns PBS documentary, Debt of Honor.
