  • Sep 11: Symposium: Energy Storage in the PNW

    Fri Sep 11, 2015 8:00 am - 5:00 pm | Friday, Sep. 11, 2015, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. PDT Advanced energy storage technologies hold the potential to transform the energy economy of the Pacific Northwest and the United States. Recently, GTM Research named Washington and Oregon to a list of “five states where energy storage could thrive.” What makes the Pacific Northwest an innovator in energy storage? How can the Northwest capitalize on its resources to become a global leader in energy storage research, technology and commercialization? Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the University of Washington, Washington State University, and the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) will host a regional symposium to explore the Pacific Northwest region’s many energy storage opportunities, capabilities and challenges. JCESR is a U.S. Department of Energy research partnership that integrates government, academic, and industrial researchers from many disciplines to create new breakthrough energy storage technology. This event will provide a forum for industry, utilities, researchers, and policy makers to discuss energy storage from science to application in the Pacific Northwest. The symposium will address several key questions about the potential for wider deployment of energy storage technologies in the Pacific Northwest, including: energy storage research needs; commercialization opportunities and challenges in the Pacific Northwest, and strategies needed to finance energy storage technology deployment. Invited speakers and panelists from regional utilities, state and federal government agencies, entrepreneurs, university and national laboratory researchers, and policy makers will collaborate in a highly interactive one-day session of networking, panel discussions, exhibits, demonstrations, and dialogue. A reception the evening before the symposium will offer additional networking opportunities and a student poster competition will provide visibility into research topics in chemical and other forms of energy storage, and their applications.

  • Oct 7: DUB Seminar: "ChangeDyslexia: Early Detection and Intervention at Large Scale," ChangeDyslexia: Early Detection and Intervention at Large Scale," by Luz Rello (CMU)

    Wed Oct 7, 2015 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm | Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015, 12 - 1:30 p.m. PDT ABSTRACT More than 10% of the population has dyslexia, and most are diagnosed only after they fail in school. My work is changing this through scalable early detection and tools that help people with dyslexia read and write better. To detect dyslexia, I am developing machine learning models that predict reading and writing difficulties by watching how people interact with my web-based game Dytective. My experiments have revealed differences in how people with dyslexia read and write, and I have developed a series of tools that integrate these results to help people with dyslexia read and write better. These tools are used by tens of thousands of people, which apart from supporting users, also serve as living laboratories in which to develop and prove techniques for detection and intervention. Moving forward, we are working with schools to put our approach into practice at scale to finally eliminate school failure as a primary way dyslexia is diagnosed. BIO Luz Rello is a Post Doctoral Fellow at Carnegie Mellon University in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute. She is also an Ashoka Fellow, invited expert to W3C-WAI and co-founder of the Cookie Cloud team that creates applications from research results. She holds a degree in Linguistics (Complutense University of Madrid), a MSc in Natural Language Processing (University of Wolverhampton) and a Ph.D. in Computer Science (Pompeu Fabra University). She has received a number of awards, including the MIT Technology Review ‘Innovators under 35 Award Spain’ (2014) and the European Young Researchers' Award (2013) for her work on applying technology for dyslexia using Linguistics, HCI and NLP. Her IDEAL eBook reader and Dyseggxia game (Vodafone Foundation Mobile for Good Europe Awards 2013) have received nearly one hundred thousand downloads in more than 70 countries. Currently, she is working to detect dyslexia at large scale and on bringing this work to society via her non-profit organization Change Dyslexia. The dub seminar can be taken for credit as CSE 590J or HCDE 523.

  • Oct 16: Free Will and Neuroscience: Dept. of Philosophy Colloquium

    Fri Oct 16, 2015 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm | Friday, Oct. 16, 2015, 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. PDT "Free Will and Neuroscience" A major source of scientific skepticism about free will is the belief that conscious decisions and intentions never play a role in producing corresponding actions. I present three serious problems encountered by any attempt to justify this belief by appealing to existing neuroscientific data. Experiments using three different kinds of technology are discussed: EEG, fMRI, and depth electrodes. Alfred R. Mele Department of Philosophy Florida State University Alfred Mele’s primary research interests revolve around human behavior. He is currently the director of the Philosophy and Science of Self-Control Project (2014-2017). Professor Mele was the director of the Big Questions In Free Will Project (2010-2013), and continues to read and write about free will, weakness of will, intentional action, and related topics. He enjoys teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in a variety of areas, including philosophy of mind, metaphysics, philosophy of action, and philosophy of religion. In 2000, he joined the Philosophy Department at Florida State University as the William H. and Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy.

  • Oct 21: The invisible trail: Pervasive tracking in a connected ageOur robotic future: Building smart robots that see in 3-D

    Wed Oct 21, 2015 7:30 am - 9:00 am | Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2015, 7:30 - 9 a.m. PDT Is your web browsing being invisibly tracked? Is your smartphone camera watching you? As our world becomes more computerized and interconnected, we find ourselves increasingly at risk of security breaches and invasions of digital privacy. Robots are a sci-fi staple, but recent advances making them smarter, cheaper, and more effective mean they’ll soon be a part of our everyday lives. Much of this progress came about because of the introduction of small, inexpensive video cameras that are commonly used in gaming applications like Microsoft Kinect. These cameras provide color and depth information so robots can see and interact with the world in 3D. Professor Fox, head of the UW Robotics and State Estimation (RSE) Lab, will explain how cutting-edge robots are learning to do 3D mapping, recognize and manipulate objects and tracking human movement and poses. Fox co-leads the Intel Science and Technology Center for Pervasive Computing, an interdisciplinary collaboration that brings together expertise at the UW, Intel and institutions that include Georgia Tech and UCLA.

  • Oct 27: Social media use during disaster events: The evolving role of the connected crowd in response and resilience, a lecture by Kate Starbird

    Tue Oct 27, 2015 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm | Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2015, 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. PDT Around the world, crises are being talked about in new ways thanks to advances in technology. Thousands and even millions of people turn to social media to seek and share information. This has spawned a new form of volunteerism—digital volunteerism—bringing people together in online spaces to offer help, both to those affected and to emergency responders. Kate Starbird presents foundational research in digital volunteerism, and discusses recent studies examining how members of affected communities, including emergency responders and local volunteers, come together with remote volunteers to participate in "emergent crowdwork" after disasters. This talk is FREE, but advance registration is required: engage.washington.edu… Natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides and hurricanes threaten lives and livelihoods across the globe. Presented by the UW Graduate School, UW Alumni Association and the UW College of the Environment, Surviving Disaster: Natural Hazards and Resilient Communities explores the latest developments in social and natural science helping us prepare for, respond to and survive environmental disasters, wherever they strike.
