Toward a Unified Approach to Sustainable and Resilient Electric Energy Systems – Modeling, Control and Testbeds
Prof. Marija Ilic, Carnegie Mellon University – Abstract: In this talk we present the changing objectives of the electric energy systems as complex dynamical systems. We briefly provide the basic landscape in the industry first. We take a broader look at the objectives of deploying…
The Five Tribes of Machine Learning, and What You Can Take from Each
Prof. Pedro Domingos, University of Washington – Abstract: There are five main schools of thought in machine learning, and each has its own master algorithm – a general-purpose learner that can in principle be applied to any domain. The symbolists have inverse deduction, the connectionists…
Tardis: Time Traveling Coherence Algorithm for Distributed Shared Memory
Prof. Srini Devadas, MIT – Abstract: (Work done with Xiangyao Yu) A new memory coherence protocol, Tardis, is presented. Tardis uses timestamp counters representing logical as opposed to physical time to order memory operations and enforce sequential consistency in any type of shared memory system….
2021 European Researchers’ Night
How can Science contribute to the knowledge about the causes and effects of climate change and to climate neutrality by 2050?
The European Researchers’ Night is an initiative funded by the European Commission, through Marie Curie Actions, aiming to celebrate Science and reduce the gap between researchers and citizens. The European Researchers’ Night translates into a series of activities happening throughout the year culminating in a night of celebration of Science, taking place in several European cities.
The European Researchers’ Night 2021 (ERN2021) will take place on 24th September across Europe. The consortium’s activities, such as lectures, workshops, among others, under the theme “Climate Science“, will take place from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., in a hybrid format, i.e., with reduced face-to-face activities and a parallel programme fully online.
INESC-ID will participate in the following activities:
- “Understanding the risks is key to preparedness.” | Game, Apps and Challenges
In this game we will help you understand warnings and how to be prepared and respond in case of earthquake and tsunami.
Knowing the risks is essential to being prepared. In this game you will learn to know the alerts and what to do to be prepared and respond in case of earthquake and tsunami. It is intended to make the population aware of natural risks, namely seismic and tsunami risks, in order to increase the resilience of communities. Educating and informing about risk prevention and mitigation is essential for promoting a risk culture.
Researcher: Mónica Amaral Ferreira
Thematic area: Architecture, Art and Design, Natural and Environmental Sciences, Technology
- “Do you know how satellites help to know how the weather’s like?” | Quizzes
The activity presents some of the methods used to assess the Earth’s climate based on satellite technology, and challenges the visitor to answer a quiz to test their knowledge.
Organised by: INESC-ID
Researcher: Rui Policarpo Duarte
Thematic area: Technology.
