They influence memory, decision-making and well-being. In order to advance the fundamental understanding of human emotions, build smarter affective technology, and ultimately help people, we need to perform research in-situ. It is now possible to quantify emotional responses on a large scale using webcams and wearable devices in everyday environments. I will present work on state-of-the-art automated facial expression recognition tools and insights from analysis from the world’s largest dataset of naturalistic emotional responses (featuring examples from millions of individuals). I’ll show examples of how this data has allowed us to corroborate and extend the understanding of nonverbal behavior, including modeling gender and cultural differences in expression (and what makes a viral video). I’ll present methods for remotely measuring physiology using webcams that allow low-cost and highly scalable measurement of cardio-pulmonary activity including heart rate variability allowing us to capture sympathetic nervous system activity in addition to expressions. Finally, I will discuss how this work will help us bring emotional intelligence to everyday digital devices and potentially track important health conditions. Bio Daniel McDuff is a Researcher at Microsoft and works on scalable tools to enable the automated recognition and analysis of emotions and physiology. He is also a visiting scientist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston where he works on deploying these methods in primary care and surgical applications. Daniel completed his PhD in the Affective Computing Group at the MIT Media Lab in 2014 and has a B.A. and Masters from Cambridge University. Previously, Daniel was Director of Research at Affectiva and a post-doctoral research affiliate at the MIT Media Lab. During his Ph.D. and at Affectiva he built state-of-the-art facial expression recognition software and lead analysis of the world’s largest database of facial expression videos. His work has received nominations and awards from Popular Science magazine as one of the top inventions in 2011, South-by-South-West Interactive (SXSWi), The Webby Awards, ESOMAR and the Center for Integrated Medicine and Innovative Technology (CIMIT). His projects have been reported in many publications including The Times, the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, BBC News, New Scientist and Forbes magazine.

  • Jan 20: Special CEI/DIRECT Seminar: Sergei V. Kalinin, Institute for Functional Imaging of Materials, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

    Fri Jan 20, 2017 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm | Friday, Jan 20, 2017, 4 - 5 p.m. PST Electrochemistry on Nano- and Atomic Levels: Scanning Probe Microscopy Meets Deep Data Structural and electronic properties of oxide surfaces control their physical functionalities and electrocatalytic activity, and are currently of interest for energy generation and storage applications. In this presentation, I will discuss several examples of high-resolution studies of the electronic and electrochemical properties of oxide surfaces enabled by multidimensional scanning probe microscopies. On the mesoscopic scale, combination of strain- and current sensitive scanning probe microscopies allows to build nanometer-scale maps of local reversible and irreversible electrochemical activities. The use of multivariate statistical methods allows separating the complex multidimensional data sets into statistically significant components which in certain cases can be mapped onto individual physical mechanisms. I will further discuss the use of in-situ Pulsed Laser Deposition growth combined with atomic resolution Scanning Tunneling Microscopy and Spectroscopy to explore surface structures and electrochemical reactivity of oxides on the atomic scale. For SrRuO3, we directly observe multiple surface reconstructions and link these to the metal-insulator transitions as ascertained by UPS methods. On LaxCa1-xMnO3, we demonstrate strong termination dependence of electronic properties and presence of disordered oxygen ad-atoms. The growth dynamics and surface terminations of these films are discussed, along with single-atom electrochemistry experiments performed by STM. I further explore the opportunities for atomically-resolved imaging and property data mining of functional oxides extending beyond classical order parameter descriptions, and giving rise to the deep data analysis in materials research. Finally, I will briefly discuss recent results on using electron microscopy as a way to control and probe local electrochemical functionality in oxides and other materials, and discuss further opportunities for nanoelectrochemistry and nanotechnology in general. This research is supported by the by the U.S. Department of Energy, Basic Energy Sciences, Materials Sciences and Engineering Division, and was conducted at the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences, which is sponsored at Oak Ridge National Laboratory by the Scientific User Facilities Division, BES DOE. Bio: Sergei V. Kalinin is the director of the ORNL Institute for Functional Imaging of Materials and distinguished research staff member at the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (at ORNL since 2002).  He also holds a Joint Associate Professor position at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, and an Adjunct Faculty position at Pennsylvania State University. His research interests include application of big data, deep data, and smart data approaches in atomically resolved and mesoscopic imaging to guide the development of advanced materials for energy and information technologies, as well as electromechanical, electrical, and transport phenomena and matter patterning on the nanoscale via scanning probe and electron microscopy. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 2002, followed by a Wigner fellowship at ORNL (2002-2004).  He is a recipient of the RMS medal for Scanning Probe Microscopy (2015); Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) (2009); IEEE-UFFC Ferroelectrics Young Investigator Award (2010); Burton medal of Microscopy Society of America (2010); ISIF Young Investigator Award (2009); American Vacuum Society Peter Mark Memorial Award (2008); 3 R&D100 Awards (2008, 2010, and 2016); Ross Coffin Award (2003); Robert L. Coble Award of American Ceramics Society (2009); and a number of other distinctions.  He has published more than 500 peer-reviewed journal papers, edited 3 books, and holds more than 10 patents.  He has organized numerous symposia (including symposia on Scanning Probe Microscopy on Materials Research Society Fall meeting in 2004, 2007, and 2009) and workshops (including International workshop series on PFM and Nanoferroelectrics), and acted as consultant for companies such as Intel and several Scanning Probe Microscopy manufacturers.  He is also a member of editorial boards for several international journals, including Nanotechnology, Journal of Applied Physics/Applied Physics Letters, and recently established Nature Partner Journal Computational Materials.

  • Jan 24: MolES Seminar: Pamela Peralta-Yahya (Georgia Tech)

    Tue Jan 24, 2017 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm | Tuesday, Jan 24, 2017, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. PST Olfactory receptor-based sensors to accelerate the engineering of chemical-producing microbes Designer microbes that convert inexpensive sugars into biofuels and bioproducts have the potential to provide a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to the synthesis of chemicals from petroleum.  Today, the major challenge in the engineering of microbes for the production of non-colorimetric or non-fluorescent chemicals is to rapidly identify the highest chemical-producing microbe from a pool, akin to finding a needle in a haystack. Current methods rely on chromatography-based technologies for the strain-screening step, which limits the throughput to screening 102 chemical-producing microbes per day. Biosensors that link chemical detection to protein fluorescence will enable the high-throughput screening of chemical-producing microbes (>106 samples per day). The Peralta-Yahya laboratory is pioneering the use of olfactory receptors in yeast as chemical sensors to enable the high-throughput screening of chemical producing microbes. Here, I will present recent work on the development of olfactory receptor-based chemical sensors to rapidly generate sensors for advanced biofuels, specialty chemicals and even non-natural molecules. I will discuss how we are using these sensors for the high-throughput screening of chemical producing microbes, and consider how this throughput now allow us to apply evolutionary approaches to the bioproduction of biofuels and other non-colorimetric chemicals. Biography Dr. Peralta-Yahya is an assistant professor in the Schools of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  Her research program focuses on developing olfactory receptor-based chemical sensors for applications in metabolic engineering and bioremediation. Dr. Peralta-Yahya has a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Columbia University, where she trained under Prof. Virginia Cornish in the development of high-throughput enzyme screens in yeast. Dr. Peralta-Yahya did her postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Prof. Jay Keasling at the University of California, Berkeley, where she specialized in the engineering microbes for the production of advanced biofuels. Dr. Peralta-Yahya’s independent work has been recognized with a DARPA Young Faculty Award, a DuPont Young Professor Award and the Kavli fellowship. Molecular Engineering and Sciences Seminar Series This weekly seminar brings together students, faculty and invited guests from various disciplines across campus to explore current trends in molecular engineering and nanotechnology. It is a  forum for active interdisciplinary discussions.  These talks are open to the public and attract a diverse audience of students and faculty.

The DUB acronym stands for Design, Use, Build. For more information about individual DUB Seminars, see the dub calendar: https://dub.washington.edu/calendar.htmlHuman Computer (Interaction) Integration Umer Farooq, Facebook Jonathan Grudin, Microsoft Research Abstract In this talk based on the cover article of ACM Interactions, Umer Farooq and Jonathan Grudin argue for a new lens on the discipline of HCI. The era of human computer interaction is giving way to the era of human computer integration—integration in the broad sense of a partnership or symbiotic relationship in which humans and software act with autonomy. Changing the focus from interaction to integration may seem subtle, but it can have profound implications for practice. Different research questions and design possibilities emerge when you shift from the familiar perspective of human computer interaction to a view of human computer integration that is well underway. Umer and Jonathan give examples of current scenarios and technology from our everyday lives that illustrate aspects of human computer integration. As designers, developers, researchers, product managers, entrepreneurs, and users, we can improve human computer interaction by focusing on the larger context of integration. Bio Umer Farooq is currently a user research manager at Facebook on the Messenger team. Prior to Facebook, he was a principal user research manager at Microsoft when he co-authored the ACM Interactions cover article. In 2008, he joined Microsoft’s Cloud & Enterprise team as a user researcher and advanced API usability methodologies for Visual Studio and Azure. In 2013, he helped to launch Xbox One globally, working on key entertainment scenarios such as media integration. He is now writing a book on the evolution of user research practice based on the CHI 2015 case study “Industry is changing, and so should we”. Jonathan Grudin is a principal researcher in the Natural Interaction research group and affiliate professor at the University of Washington Information School. He has participated in CHI and Computer Supported Cooperative Work since they coalesced in the 1980s, is an ACM Fellow and member of the CHI Academy, and served as Editor-In-Chief of ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction for six years and Associate Editor for Computing Surveys for ten. His book on the history of HCI will be published in early 2017. Campus location: Kane Hall (KNE) Campus room: 225 Event types: Lectures/Seminars Event sponsors: UW DUB More info: dub.washington.edu…

  • Feb 7: MolES Seminar: Sarah Christine Heilshorn (Stanford)

    Tue Feb 7, 2017 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm | Tuesday, Feb 7, 2017, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. PST Protein Engineering of Multi-functional Biomaterials for Regenerative Medicine Stem cell transplantation is a promising therapy for a myriad of debilitating diseases and injuries; however, current delivery protocols are inadequate. Transplantation by direct injection, which is clinically preferred for its minimal invasiveness, commonly results in less than 5% cell viability, greatly inhibiting clinical outcomes. We demonstrate that mechanical membrane damage results in significant acute loss of viability at clinically relevant injection rates. As a strategy to protect cells from these detrimental forces, we show that cell encapsulation within hydrogels can significantly improve transplanted cell viability. Building on these fundamental studies, we have designed a family of injectable, bioresorbable, customizable hydrogels using protein-engineering technology. By integrating protein science methodologies with simple polymer physics models, we manipulate the polypeptide chain interactions and demonstrate the direct ability to tune the material properties including hydrogel mechanics, cell-adhesion, and biodegradation. Through a series of in vitro and in vivo studies, we demonstrate that protein-engineered hydrogels may significantly improve transplanted stem cell retention and regenerative function. Furthermore, many of the lessons learned about designing injectable biomaterials can be extended to design new bio-inks for 3D printing applications. While 3D printing has enormous potential for tissue engineering, few bio-inks are currently available to facilitate the printing of complex, cell-laden constructs. We demonstrate the design of a new, customizable bio-ink that enables the printing of multiple cell types into distinct geometric forms. Sarah Heilshorn Associate Professor Materials Science and Engineering Stanford University Sarah Heilshorn’s interests include biomaterials in regenerative medicine, engineered proteins with novel assembly properties, microfluidics and photolithography of proteins, and synthesis of materials to influence stem cell differentiation. Current projects include tissue engineering for spinal cord and blood vessel regeneration, designing injectable materials for use in stem cell therapies, and the design of microfluidic devices to study the directed migration of cells (i.e., chemotaxis). She graduated from Georgia Tech with a BS in Chemical Engineering in 1998, and completed her Ph.D. at Caltech in 2004. Dr. Heilshorn’s awards and honors include the National Institutes of Health New Innovator Award, the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award, the American Chemical Society’s New Investigator Award. She is a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and a William R. and Gretchen B. Kimball University Fellow in Undergraduate Education at Stanford. Molecular Engineering and Sciences Seminar Series This weekly seminar brings together students, faculty and invited guests from various disciplines across campus to explore current trends in molecular engineering and nanotechnology.

  • Feb 8: Dub Seminar: Meredith Ringel Morris

    Wed Feb 8, 2017 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm | Wednesday, Feb 8, 2017, 12 - 1 p.m. PST DUB is a grassroots alliance of faculty, students, researchers, and industry partners interested in Human Computer Interaction & Design at the University of Washington. The DUB acronym stands for Design, Use, Build. For more information about individual DUB Seminars, see the dub calendar: dub.washington.edu… Enhancing the Throughput and Expressivity of Augmentative and Alternative Communication Technologies for People with ALS Meredith Ringel Morris, Microsoft Research Abstract ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a degenerative neuromuscular disease; people with late-stage ALS typically retain cognitive function, but lose the motor ability to speak, relying on gaze-controlled AAC (augmentative and alternative communication) devices for interpersonal interactions. State-of-the-art AAC technologies used by people with ALS do not facilitate natural communication; gaze-based AAC communication is extremely slow (typically below 20 wpm, compared to 190 wpm for conversational speech), and the resulting synthesized speech is flat and robotic. In this talk, I will present a series of novel technology prototypes from the Microsoft Research Enable team that aim to address the challenges of improving the throughput and expressivity of AAC for people with ALS. Bio Meredith Ringel Morris is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research, where she is affiliated with the Ability, Enable, and neXus research teams. She is also an affiliate faculty member at the University of Washington, in both the department of Computer Science and Engineering and the School of Information. Dr. Morris earned a Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford University in 2006, and also did her undergraduate work in computer science at Brown University. Her primary research area is human-computer interaction, specifically computer-supported cooperative work and social computing. Her current research focuses on the intersection of CSCW and Accessibility (“social accessibility”), creating technologies that facilitate people with disabilities in connecting with others in social and professional contexts. Past research contributions include foundational work in facilitating cooperative interactions in the domain of surface computing, and in supporting collaborative information retrieval via collaborative web search and friendsourcing. More information about Merrie, including her full list of publications, can be found on her website, meredithringelmorris.com.
