Urban Water Provision Amidst the Chaos of Emerging Markets

November 13 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Join us this month as Prof. David Taylor discusses how engineering is solving the constant challenge of accessible, clean water to emerging markets. Servicing emerging markets requires products tailored to the challenges of their chaotic water systems, which are characterized by: frequently empty pipes, low pressure, high rates of contamination, high losses, and missing network information. Upgrading these intermittent water systems is a 70-billion-dollar market. Prof. Taylor’s talk introduces intermittent systems and their challenges, and describes the tools developed to…

PsychEng Seminar: Grouping visual elements in a meaningful way for human and computer vision with Prof. Dirk Bernhardt-Walther

Registration required. View all upcoming PsychEng seminars.     Abstract: Research in the past three decades has propelled our understanding of both human and machine vision: We can describe much of the neural mechanisms of human visual perception, and state-of-the-art machine vision can detect objects with high accuracy. Yet research on both human and machine vision lacks a detailed understanding of how visual features are grouped with each other and linked to the rich details of meaning that humans naturally assign…

LLE – Empowering Women and Children to Achieve their Full Physical and Mental Potential through Micronutrient-Enriched Salt (Venkatesh Mannar, University of Toronto)

November 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    Co-hosted with the Centre for Global Engineering (CGEN) Host: Levente Diosady We all need food – so that we don’t go hungry, stay fit, active and healthy through our lives. But if the food we consume doesn’t contain essential vitamins and minerals, that our bodies need on a daily and consistent basis – we will never reach our full potential.  One in three of us do not get enough micronutrients to survive and thrive. In large parts of…

OR Seminar: Placement Optimization in Refugee Resettlement with Andrew C. Trapp

This event is open to the public and registration is not required. View all upcoming Operations Research Seminars   Abstract Tens of thousands of refugees are resettled yearly from refugee camps to host countries. Local areas that host refugees are reluctant to open capacity, and most impose tight restrictions on the refugee family types they accept. We model this matching challenge as a 0-1 knapsack variant and explore outcomes-related objectives in the search toward an optimal allocation. Our employment optimization…

PsychEng Seminar: Young drivers, distraction, and advanced vehicle technologies with Birsen Donmez

Registration required. View all upcoming PsychEng seminars.     Abstract Distraction is a significant contributing factor to young driver crashes. Crash risk is known to decrease with driving experience, partly because of the improved skills to control the vehicle, but also because of the improved capability to distribute attention, even when distracted. A series of empirical studies will be presented evaluating young drivers’ attention allocation both for manual driving (i.e., no or low level of automation) and for high levels of…
