Surviving Product Development Panel

Surviving Product Development Panel

Have a great design for a new product but don't see the clear path to making it ready for the real world?

Hardware startups face unique challenges during the product development process. A single decision, such as an investment in hard tooling, can make or break the company. Can hardware companies learn from software's approach, and be iterative and adaptive throughout the development cycle? How do the developments in manufacturing technology impact a young company's ability to navigate this cycle?

Hear from a panel of product developers and experts in hardware manufacturing and financing on what they believe hardware startups can do to be more agile and resilient, and how you can make the smartest choices as you take your product from cool idea to market. 

Joining us on the panel are Joe Bamberg from Sense, Maggie Teliska from Ryantel, and Scott Sawyer discussing his experience at Ecovent. Jason Ray of Paperless Parts will moderate.

Drinks and appetizers provided by Paperless Parts will be served at the start and finish of the program.

Maptime Boston: Using GPUs for Lightning Fast Analytics on MapD

  • CIC Cambridge (101 Main Campus) - Cloud City, 14th floor (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

For our October Maptime event, we'll learn about MapD - a powerful platform for visualizing large datasets. 

GPU-powered in-memory databases and analytics platforms are the logical successors to CPU in-memory systems, largely due to recent increases in the onboard memory available on GPUs. With sufficient memory, GPUs possess numerous advantages over CPUs, including much greater compute and memory bandwidth, as well as a native graphics pipeline for visualization.

In this tutorial, Aaron Williams, VP of Community at MapD, will demo how MapD is able to leverage multiple GPUs per server to extract orders-of-magnitude performance increases over CPU-based systems, bringing interactive querying and visualization to multi-billion (with a ‘b’) row datasets.

Japan Culture Series: Karuta

Come experience karuta with the Japan Society of Boston and instructor Kyoko Hiromoto! Mrs. Hiromoto is the organizer of the Boston Nakamaro Karuta Club, and is a 1st-Dan, rank C player.

Karuta is the Japanese card matching game in which the beginning of a poem is read, and players need to be the first to grab the card with the rest of the poem written on it. Join us for an intro to this classic game, still popular today, and try your hand! Whoever grabs the most correct cards wins.

Karuta is played while kneeling on tatami mats, so please dress accordingly if you plan to play!

ROTU - Storytelling in VR within an Expanding Universe

Jason Parks and Emir Cerman will discuss how ROTU was formed and the transition from traditional live & visual media to virtual reality content. They discuss that the market is crying out for compelling, in depth storylines for ‘games’ contained within a Star Wars or Harry Potter type franchise. They go over how to generate broader brand appeal through great storytelling. How a series of games released in rapid succession, that tells a story in an expansive universe to gain brand appeal will succeed over less content rich competitors.

Society of Applied Spectroscopy New England Section October Meeting

 

6:00 – 7:00 Social Hour

7:00 – 8:00 Presentation & Discussion

8:00 – 9:00 Dinner

Speaker: Dr. Bryan Spring Assistant Professor Department of Physics Northeastern University Title: New optical approaches to identification and selective treatment of cancer

Abstract: Molecular-targeted, activatable probes are emerging for optical biopsy of cancer. An unexplored potential clinical use of this approach is to monitor and treat residual cancer micrometastases that escape surgery and chemotherapy. This talk will introduce a new platform for activatable phototherapy and in vivo imaging of residual metastases that enables high-fidelity imaging and treatment of cancer cells. Optically active nanomaterials—that use light as both a drug release mechanism and as a cytotoxic modality—are an emerging component of this approach and will also be introduced.

Speaker Biography: Dr. Bryan Q. Spring is an assistant prof. in Northeastern University. His lab utilizes optical spectroscopic imaging and photophysics to visualize and selectively target micrometastases left behind by standard therapies that limit our ability to cure many cancers. The ultimate goal of Dr. Spring’s work is to reduce cancer recurrence and mortality by establishing new approaches for personalized medicine that address tumor heterogeneity, drug-resistance and molecular mechanisms of treatment escape. Advanced-stage cancer patients are presently subjected to a grueling treatment regimen consisting of surgical tumor debulking and high-dose-intensity chemotherapy. These standard approaches frequently hit a wall due to dose-limiting toxicities as well as mechanisms of drugresistance and treatment escape via cell signaling networks. To address these challenges, Dr. Spring’s efforts focus on developments in photomedicine in concert with guidance from in vivo microscopy for the discovery of dynamic molecular mechanisms of treatment escape and for the rational design of therapeutic regimens that overcome resistance. A major focus of Dr. Spring’s lab is to develop multicolor in vivo microendoscopy and moleculartargeted agents for both imaging and therapy. The group builds new fluorescence microendoscopy tools (e.g., hyperspectral, lifetime-resolved and FRET imaging); develops real-time image analysis software; designs and synthesizes molecular-targeted probes; and, develops mouse models of cancer. Dr. Spring received a B.S. in Physics from Iowa State University in 2002, a Ph.D. in Biophysics and Computational Biology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2008 and conducted his postdoctoral research at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. His doctoral work with Robert M. Clegg focused on developing video-rate fluorescence lifetime imaging and quantitative measurements of Fo ̈rster resonance energy transfer. His postdoctoral research focused on new optical techniques and targeted therapies for pancreatic and ovarian cancer.

Dinner Details: Attendees are encouraged to join the speaker after the conclusion of the talk. Everyone will be ordering and paying for their own meals.

Cost: SAS or CIC Members $5; non-members $7; full time students and unemployed members $5. Please try to have a check or exact change.

Contact: Due to capacity seating limitations, an RSVP is suggested. Please contact Vincent Lee at vincentlee@nesas.org if you have questions.

Tools for Impact: The Science of Team Success

5:30 - Networking

6:00 - Sessions Begins!

What to Expect at This Edition of Tools for Impact

 

Teams are critical to any organization’s success. Yet, research shows that most teams fall short. A Harvard study found that 79% of leadership teams delivered either “poor” or “mediocre” results. Research by Stanford’s Behnam Tabrizi found that 75% of cross-functional teams are “dysfunctional.”

 

In this Tools for Impact, you will learn about the research that reveals the six conditions that drive team success. Just as importantly, you’ll learn how to shape them so your teams can realize their most ambitious goals. And, we’ll have some fun in the process!

 

Want your team to have an unfair advantage? Join us on October 17th!
