  3. Dec. 19, 2017Researchers using AI to learn from expert bricklayers

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is giving researchers at Waterloo Engineering new insights to help reduce wear-and-tear injuries and boost the productivity of skilled construction workers.

    Studies using motion sensors and AI software have revealed expert bricklayers use previously unidentified techniques to limit the loads on their joints, knowledge that can now be passed on to apprentices in training programs.

  3. Jan. 25, 2018WISE Public Lecture - Energy: Ten Big Ideas on Energy (What Everyone Needs to Know)

    If one had to select a handful of ideas that are foundational to understanding energy, its past, present and future, where would one begin? And how would one communicate them to those who do not specialize in one or another aspect of energy?

    Drawing on the sciences, humanities and the social sciences, this talk will focus on ten ‘big’ ideas, illustrating their essentiality, and how they reach across the disciplines.

    All are welcome at this free public event.
