The Age of Living Machines: How Biology Will Build the Next Technology Revolution

With an anticipated world population of over 9.5 billion by 2050, we face an unprecedented challenge to sustainably provide sufficient food, water, energy and healthcare. Convergence, the merging of previously distinct disciplines, has emerged as a powerful model with untold potential to drive a new cycle of innovation-based economic growth. Bringing together insights and discoveries from the life, engineering, computation and physical sciences holds the promise of accelerating discovery and the development of new technologies to meet the 21st century’s needs.

What is a 'Cause,' and Why Does it Happen Before the Effect?

The physics of the time orientation of causation is more subtle than what it looks like superficially. For a long while it was reduced to a mere linguistic issue (a “cause” is just the term of a correlation that happens earlier, Hume). As emphasized by Russell, there is no time orientation in fundamental physics. But causation was later better understood as an essential notion in the context of an agent having choices, which after all is our own common context. This traces the time orientation of causation to the time orientation of agency.

Wright Lab APC Workshop: Introduction to design for rapid prototyping

In this workshop we will cover how to get started designing parts for your projects that can be made simply and quickly with a CNC cutter or 3D printer. No prior experience is required, but having an idea for a project that you may want to get started on would be great.

EHS Orientation for Wright Lab Shops

Wright Lab will host two identical 1-hour Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Shop Orientations on Tuesday, February 16 at 1:00 p.m., and Tuesday, February 23 at 2:00 p.m., both on Zoom (connection information is below). The EHS shop orientation is offered each semester and is required to be taken once by anyone who would like to gain access and make use of the research and teaching shops at Wright Lab.

Yale Day of Data Spring Series: Language (Data) Is Everywhere! Linguistics and Language Data in Research

What kind of data do linguists use and how do they use it? Please join us for a panel that will get into the nitty gritty of linguistics data across a variety of subfields, from brain imaging to corpus analysis and beyond, moderated by Professor of Linguistics and 2020-2021 Model Research Collection Curator Claire Bowern.

Panelists:

- Robert Frank, Professor of Linguistics
- Maria Piñango, Associate Professor of Linguistics
- Natalie Weber, Assistant Professor of Linguistics
- Jim Wood, Assistant Professor of Linguistics

NPA Zoom Seminar, Kimmy Wu, SLAC/KIPAC, "Improved Constraint on Primordial Gravitational Waves with Delensing"

Inflation generically predicts a background of primordial gravitational waves, which generate a primordial B-mode component in the polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). The measurement of such a B-mode signature would lend significant support to the paradigm of inflation. Observed B modes also contain a component from the gravitational lensing of primordial E modes, which can obscure the measurement of the primordial B modes.

NPA Zoom Seminar, Govert Nijs, MIT, "A Transverse Momentum Differential Global Analysis of Heavy Ion Collisions"

The understanding of heavy ion collisions and its quark-gluon plasma formation requires a complicated interplay of rich physics in a wealth of experimental data. In this work we compare for identified particles as a function of transverse momentum both the spectra and the anisotropic flow coefficients for both PbPb and pPb collisions. We do this in a model including a free streaming prehydrodynamic phase with variable velocity v_fs, thereby widening the scope of initial conditions. During the hydrodynamic phase we vary three new second order transport coefficients.

Yale Day of Data - Day 2

The 2020 Yale Day of Data will be held virtually over two half-days, December 3 and 4*, with the theme “In the Service of Data.”

The Yale Day of Data is an event that brings researchers together from a variety of disciplines to discuss finding, analyzing, and managing data.

Friday, December 4

11:00 AM – 12:15 PM | Faculty Panel, Smita Krishnaswamy, Assistant Professor of Genetics and of Computer Science; Ellery Frahm, Research Scientist in the Department of Anthropology & Council on Archaeological Studies, Director of Y-PYRO and YAXX
