Event Image Exhibition: Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
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.

Stopping games

We consider a stopping game in which the game ends after all the players' stopping. Instead of being the usual stopping times, the stopping strategies used by the players can be adjusted according to other players' behaviors. We first consider the zero-sum games both in discrete and continuous time. We convert the original game into a Dynkin game, and show that the value of the original game exists in some sense and is equal to the value of the Dynkin game. Then we consider the non-zero-sum case. We show that under some assumptions there always exists an epsilon Nash equilibrium.

Bistability and Hopf Bifurcation in a Refined Model of the Acute Stage of HIV Infection

Recent clinical studies have shown that HIV disease pathogenesis can depend strongly on many factors at the time of transmission, including the strength of the initial viral load and the local availability of CD4+ T-cells. To facilitate these new advances, we will describe a refined in-host model of HIV infection that incorporates the homeostatic proliferation of T-cells. Due to the effects of this biological process, the influence of initial conditions on the proliferation of HIV infection and the dynamics of the model is further elucidated.  In particular, our study of the new model extends previous theoretical and computational work on the acute stage of the disease and leads to interesting nonlinear dynamics, including a parameter region featuring bistability of infectious and viral clearance equilibria and the appearance of a Hopf bifurcation within biologically relevant parameter regimes, which may be linked to the appearance of so-called “viral blips”

Blended Bayesian Intelligence for Collaborative Autonomous Systems (Big and Small) 

ABSTRACT: The age of autonomy has arrived. However, as autonomous systems are products of imperfect human engineering designed to make decisions in an uncertain world, the promise of ‘set-it-and-forget-it’ autonomy is still quite far off: autonomous systems will never operate out of the box “exactly right.” For sufficiently rich tasks that constantly push the technological cutting edge, they will encounter unexpected situations that require reasoning beyond their designed/immediate capabilities. As such, intelligent autonomy must not only be able to independently gather, process and act on information – it should also be cognizant of what it can and cannot accomplish, and know when and how to seek help.

Human-machine and machine-machine interaction are thus key components of autonomous system design, and these must naturally integrate with existing perception, planning, learning and reasoning algorithms for single agent autonomy. An autonomous robot, for instance, should ideally enable human stakeholders and users to fluidly (re-)delegate tasks to the system, assess information, and contribute  meaningful operational improvements -- without requiring users to “babysit,” act as a “Band-Aid” when all else fails, or think too hard about what the system is trying to do. When combined into large scale networked teams, intelligent autonomous robots should also be able to efficiently exchange and extract relevant information from one another to improve both local and global reasoning under uncertainty – even if they have heterogeneous/asymmetrical capabilities and tasks to complete. 

In this talk, Ahmed will discuss novel Bayesian approaches to collaborative human-robot and robot-robot reasoning that can be exploited from the outset in autonomous system design. The first part of the talk will focus on probabilistic modeling and inference techniques for augmenting autonomous sensing and state estimation algorithms with plug-in “human sensor” inputs, provided via user-friendly semantic interfaces (e.g. natural language, sketching). The second part of the talk will highlight the important issue of scaling autonomous Bayesian reasoning to large distributed networks. In particular, Ahmed will show how factorized decentralized data fusion (FDDF) methods can be used to create a “GitHub for uncertainty” that allows agents to efficiently exchange conditional chunks of statistical information on demand across disparate local world models. Results from collaborative human-robot target search and multi-platform target tracking applications show that these techniques allow autonomous teams to gracefully “fill in the gaps and cut the knots” for challenging uncertain reasoning problems – without undermining individual agent roles or ignoring the limitations of individual autonomous agents. 

BIO: Nisar Ahmed is an assistant professor of aerospace engineering sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder. His research interests are in the modeling and estimation for intelligent control of dynamical systems, especially for applications involving human-robot interaction, distributed sensor networks, and information fusion. He received his BS in engineering from Cooper Union, and PhD in mechanical engineering from Cornell University in 2012. He was a postdoctoral research associate in the Cornell Autonomous Systems Lab from 2012 to 2014. He was awarded the 2011 AIAA Guidance, Navigation, and Control Conference Best Paper Award; and an ASEE Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship in 2014. His work has been funded by the Army, Air Force and industry, and he has also organized several workshops and symposia on autonomous robotics, sensor fusion and human-autonomy interaction. He is a member of the IEEE and an associate member of the AIAA Intelligent Systems Technical Committee.

APPM Department Colloquium - Jed Brown
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Jed Brown, Department of Computer Science, University of Colorado Boulder
On nonlinear adaptivity with heterogeneity
Conventional adaptive methods depend on the solution being smooth in
much of the domain, such that coarse grids provide adequate resolution
everywhere but in some localized areas that require higher resolution.
Heterogeneity impedes standard adaptive techniques because it is not
possible to have accurate solutions without resolving the heterogeneity.
We present an adaptive method that can be viewed as a nonlinear
multigrid or domain decomposition scheme in which fine levels resolve
the heterogeneity but are rarely visited in most of the domain during
the nonlinear solution process.  This requires judicious use of overlap
similar to the highly parallel segmental refinement methods of Adams et
al (2016) and related to admissibility criteria for fast integral
methods.  We will compare and contrast our method with other nonlinear
multilevel domain decomposition methods such as ASPIN.

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.

Real Change: The Thrilling Science of Neuroplasticity and How We Can Use It
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The human adult brain was once believed by neuroscientists to be “fixed, ended, immutable,” but recent advances have revealed this three-pound organ to be remarkably dynamic. This means that where and how we spend time, who we relate to, and what we practice truly matters. It shapes our brain! This workshop will cover contemporary brain science, including research the presenter contributed to during her time at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. The audience will also have opportunities to explore key questions raised by the science of neuroplasticity: What Mam I practicing? Are there practices I would like to give up? Begin? The presentation will end with examples of practices that create change from the inside out.

Presented by Christina Congleton M.Ed.

Christina is a leadership and human development specialist, consulting to individuals and organizations interested in “next generation” leadership capacities such as mindfulness, emotional agility, and adult developmental psychology. Christina holds a master’s degree in human development and psychology from Harvard University. She also is a certified Integral Coach through New Ventures West and a licensed Immunity to Change facilitator.

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, large vesselswere fashioned from cedar, poplar, and cottonwood trunks.  But how big, how numerous, and how widely dispersed were these canoes?  How far back do they go in time, and how did the introduction of European metal tools influence or alter the construction of these boats?  This talk will suggest preliminary answers to these and related questions.


Event Image NASA’s MMS Mission: Revolutionizing Our Understanding of Magnetic Reconnection
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

NASA’s Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission launched in March 2015 and placed four identical spacecraft into orbit around Earth to study a little-understood phenomenon called magnetic reconnection. Magnetic reconnection is a fundamental process of nature that happens in charged particles all across our universe. Reconnection occurs when magnetic field lines meet and reconnect in a different configuration, releasing a gigantic burst of energy in the process. MMS is the only mission currently dedicated to the study of this phenomenon. In this presentation, LASP space physics research scientist Allison Jaynes, will discuss the early results from the mission, and the key role LASP plays in the mission itself. Reconnection on the Sun-ward side of Earth contributes to plasma entry into Earth’s magnetosphere, while reconnection on the night-side triggers the burst of particles that results in auroral displays. Researchers working on MMS are committed to answering questions surrounding the process of reconnection; questions that are fundamental to the nature of our universe, from the distant stars to nuclear fusion technology here on Earth. Come learn how studying our near-Earth environment with missions like MMS makes use of a unique, nearby laboratory to understand the physics of magnetic fields across the universe.
