Graduate Student Complexity Seminar & Social

New this term, University of Waterloo graduate students will discuss their complex systems work during a monthly seminar. Join us for a 20 minute talk, followed by a 20-minute discussion and feedback opportunity. Afterwards, everyone who is able is welcome to meet at the Graduate House for food and socializing from 6 p.m. onward. 

This month, Jude H. Kurniawan talks about 'Visualizing different perspectives of energy scenarios' on Thursday, May 16 from 4:30-5:30 in EV3 3401. We hope to see you there!

View slides from Yacov Haimes' Presentation: "Understanding, Modeling, and Managaing Interdependent Complex Systems of Systems"

A joint seminar sponsored by Waterloo Institute for Complexity & Innovation [WICI] and the Department of Systems Design Engineering.

There have been broad advances in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) in the past decade, especially in the areas of Deep Learning and Reinforcement Learning (RL) which allow us to more easily learn predictive models and control policies for large, complex systems than ever before. One subset of problems that remains very challenging are domains that contain some form of spatially spreading process (SSP) where some local features change over time across based on proximity in space.

Dr. Carla Restrepo is a Professor at the College of Natural Sciences, Biology, UPR, Puerto Rico.

She will be presenting her WICI Talk : "From sandpiles to real mountains - Complex dynamics of tropical mountainscapes mediated by landslides" on February 27, 2018 at 2 p.m. in the Davis Centre Rm.1302.  

Join us for Dr. Ricard Solé's WICI Talk: "Synthetic evolutionary transitions: from cells to brains and ecosystems"

Dr. Ricard Solé is a Professor, at the Complex Systems Lab, in Barcelona Biomedical Research Park, Universitat Pompeu Fabra.   He will present on April 24th, 2018, in DC 1302 at 2:00 p.m.

Abstract:  Evolution is marked by well-defined events involving profound innovations

Tuesday, October 2, 2018 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)
