Speakers and approximate schedule (times JST):
1. (20:15) Christine Houser -- Fuji-san: The Forces Driving Japan’s Most Iconic Volcano (https://twitter.com/seismodoc)
Mount Fuji: Japan's highest point and no ordinary volcano. The geologic features we associate with Japan--earthquakes, volcanoes, the Japanese Alps, and our beloved onsen--arise from the intersection of three tectonic plates below Kanto. We will explore how our dynamic Earth moves water, rock, and magma to create such an inspiring landscape.
2. (21:00) Fahrettin Haczeyni — Foie Gras: Protecting the Liver from a Silent Disease (October 2019)
When the liver gets fat, how can we fight back?
3. (21:45) Martin Skrodzki -- Seeing and Recognizing: Two Very Different Animals for Robots (https://twitter.com/msmathcomputer2)
Most humans have no problem instantly recognizing faulty manufacturing parts on a conveyor belt. For robots, however, this task is decisively harder. Mathematical methods can help them and progress automation--up to a point. What’s so problematic for robots to recognize objects, how can we help them and what trade-offs need to be made?
When: July 17 (Friday), start 20:00 (JST) [12pm London, 7am New York]
