CIC ArtWeek: Biomaterials Workshop

CIC ArtWeek: Biomaterials Workshop

About the event:

Join Materiom Boston, in partnership with Fab@CIC, to create materials recipes from the abundant natural resources local to the Boston ecosystem. In this special ArtWeek edition of our weekend workshop series, Materiom Boston will guide you through the processes of making and using biomaterials in one jam-packed Bio-palooza! Participants will have the opportunity to make a materials recipe using locally sourced ingredients (mussel shells, coffee, and orange peels), as well as to transform the materials using fabrication tools to create beautiful and useful things such as reusable bags, tiles, and molds.

No formal science or maker experience is required! All you need is an open mind, a strong sense of curiosity, and a willingness to get a little sticky.


More about Biomaterials Working Group:

Fablabs around the world use tons of plastic, imported wood, and other materials with a substantial carbon footprint -- for single-use purposes. Even though some (small bits) of it can be recycled, that process is energy intensive and often requires inputs of virgin materials. What if we could make our own consumables that were biodegradable and sourced almost literally from our backyards?

Over the next several months, the Materiom Boston Biomaterials working group will be sampling, refining and documenting recipes using ingredients local to Boston. We’ll collaborate with other similarly minded groups who are undertaking the same challenge in their corners of the world. Our process will be an experiment in community-based science and will culminate in applying our materials to a public art project in Boston next summer. The working group is open to anyone who is interested in pushing forward sustainable materials in a collaborative way!

Check out a sampling of biomaterials recipes at Materiom.com.

CIC ArtWeek: Massivemuse Concert and Open Mic Night

  • CIC Boston, Lighthouse West, 20th floor (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

CIC is bringing the concert hall to you and hosting a Massivemuse, a production supported by Groupmuse. Groupmuse taps local communities into a network of classical musicians who offer unique concert experiences in unconventional spaces. The performance will showcase four accomplished local classical singers, serving arias and ensemble numbers from famous operas. While Groupmuses typically happen in living rooms, Artweek’s Massivemuse production will utilize our Lighthouse event space to offer a larger scale performance to CIC and the broader community.

In the hour before handing the evening over to the ensemble, Lighthouse will be a space for socializing and spontaneous expression. Whether you have a poem to recite, a song to sing, or a story to tell, the mic will be open for folks to share their art as part of this collective experience. Open mic events have a rich history at CIC, so we're excited to share and grow that energy with folks outside of our community.

CIC is offering a limited number of half-price tickets through this page, so get them now! Once we sell out of the discounted tickets, regular-price tickets can be purchased through Groupmuse's website.

Deep Learning in Production: Galaxy.ai - ML for damage on vehicle & SENTENAI - ML for factory floor

Galaxy.ai
Bio for Pranab Banerjee: Mr Pranab Banerjee is currently the Chief Data Scientist at Galaxy AI. His primary areas of research are computer vision, pattern recognition, Bayesian probabilistic models, bio- and socio-inspired computation, autonomous systems, and scientific data visualization. In the past, Mr. Banerjee was a member of computational sciences staff at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory; a senior scientist at Space Dynamics Laboratory; principal research engineer at BAE Systems; and principal research scientist at Boston Fusion Corp. He is also an international award winning photographer.

SENTENAI
Bio for Brendan Kohler: Brendan Kohler is a entrepreneur and investor focused on bringing AI solutions from the lab into production. He started his career working on large scale distributed systems and supercomputing applications at Georgia Tech. Later he researched complex event processing and machine learning applications for cyber-physical systems at Yale. In 2015 he co-founded Hyperplane Venture Capital to bring investment dollars to help entrepreneurs working on "hard tech” solutions based on machine learning and artificial intelligence get the patient capital and support they need to be successful. Brendan is currently co-founder and CTO of Sentenai, a Boston startup that uses unsupervised machine learning to provide realtime data preparation for industrial IoT data.

Abstract
Deep learning on the factory floor: an open problem
When people think of deploying advanced machine learning to the factory floor, the first thing that comes to mind is probably low-power prediction at the edge, but factories are gigantic facilities with power and physical footprints that make such considerations meaningless. Instead, the three challenges of data, dimensionality, and deployment are what prevent us from successfully implementing deep learning on the factory floor. In this talk, we explore new the new techniques and technologies required to build solutions that work in this complex, hostile environment so that we can turn the “lights out factory” from fantasy into reality.

How to Land a Career in Blockchain

Just as the rise of SaaS, mobile, and cloud computing required new technologies and new ways of thinking, blockchain companies and the decentralized systems they're creating are driven by their own set of technical, product, and business skills. As blockchain companies continue to rise, demand for talent in the space is at an all-time high. But even with large salaries and exciting products, so many companies we've talked to say they're struggling to find individuals with the right skills and expertise to hire.

On this panel, we'll hear from a variety of leaders that have been hiring blockchain talent. We'll explore what skill sets and expertise they're looking for, what kind of new roles blockchain technology has created and which familiar roles blockchain is changing. You'll hear advice on how to break into the field if you're a new professional, and how to update your skills and broaden your experience if you're already working in tech or an industry blockchain is affecting.

Leading with Emotional Credibility

As a leader you can only bend people to your will for so long. Successful leaders benefit from being able to move people to act organically, through a sense of loyalty, trust, connection and even love. Creating an empowered team where people own their results, think for themselves and are ready to follow you anywhere, is not accomplished with brute force, but through building a special kind of credibility. 

As one of the most prolific TED-format trainers in the world, John Bates has been privileged to get to know and work with many accomplished executives. In his work John noticed that when people first take the stage, pitch new clients or take on a new role, they first try to "establish their credibility". However, John asserts that in most of these situations, credibility is already assumed; you have the business card, you were given the stage or the opportunity… and trying to establish credibility on top of that merely serves to tarnish it. In a profound experience, John realized that what truly matters in these instances is not establishing your credibility, but rather, establishing your “Emotional Credibility™" Join us to find out why this is your number one leadership and influence tool and how to wield it effectively. 

Speaker 
John Bates has spoken, hosted and coached for over 35 different worldwide TED and TEDx events. John has been privileged to get to know some of the top leaders in the world - the NASA Astronauts, leaders at Johnson & Johnson, JLABS, Accenture, Boston Scientific, Coca Cola and many others, on a very deep, personal level. The amount of vulnerability, openness, self-reflection and honesty that a well-done TED-format talk requires is second to none. The insights into leadership, success, fulfillment and life that John has gained from his years of experience with this allow him to share some of the biggest, most powerful secrets of truly successful leadership that exist. 

John’s book The Itty Bitty Guide to Being TED-Worthy is due out in the 1st quarter of 2019, see his columns for INC.com here (link to: https://www.inc.com/author/john-bates) John loves making a difference for those who make a difference.

Action Design Boston

About Action Design Boston

We sit at the intersection of behavioral economics, design, and psychology for advocacy and positive change. We focus on exposing our members to cutting edge tools, research, and practitioners in each of these areas so they can apply the latest learning in action design in their respective fields. 

We explore anything that allows us to make large-scale, positive impact on people's behavior. We discuss the emerging efforts of many industries to improve the behaviors of people through products, services, programs, and policy. 

Whether the goal is to help people save more money, get in shape, cut down on electricity usage, or learn a new language, the idea is the same: How can we use research in behavioral economics, psychology, and design to explicitly improve human behaviors, as well as improving overall engagement in any product, service, or program, or policy? 

We touch many different subjects: persuasive technology, choice architecture, emotional design, cognitive design, positive psychology, marketing, gameful design, game thinking, copywriting, funnel-optimization, social work, persuasive psychology, behaviorism, cognitive behavioral therapy and many other related topics. 

We're part of the greater Action Design Network (http://www.action-design.org), an non-profit organization with groups across the US, Canada, and the UK with over 10,000 members and counting.

MassLandlords Monthly Dinner - Smart Home Tech for Rental

  • CIC Cambridge - Venture Cafe, 5th floor (map)

Technology can save time, reduce risk, and earn higher rents by shutting off the water, giving renters keyless entry, and keeping vandals away all without us having to be there. Come see what easy and affordable steps you can take to modernize your operations, save time, and get a higher return on your investment.

Key use-cases we will be considering:

  • Rekeying

  • Streamlining access for tenants and contractors / repairs

  • Controlling / Reducing utility expenses

  • Freeze protection

  • Security

We will be going over smart thermostats, water leak detection and shutoff, smart locks, door and window sensors, and video monitoring.

This part of the presentation will be given by Charles Hadsell, MassLandlords member and CEO at ePropertyCare.

By leveraging this wealth of information, caregivers and researchers can improve diagnostics, accelerate medical research, develop personalized medicine, reduce costs and more. But big data usage is lower in healthcare than in some other industries. This event will cover an array of use cases for big data in healthcare and will provide insights on how to accelerate and optimize its use.

During this TechMeeting we will hear from leading research labs, innovative startups and large corporations.

The Longevity Revolution is Here

  • CIC Cambridge (245 Main location) - Mosaic, 3rd floor (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The massive shift in the demographics of aging is generating unprecedented entrepreneurial opportunities. The world needs scalable, tech-enabled innovations that serve the evolving needs of the rapidly increasing older adult population.

This emerging phenomenon – The Longevity Economy- will drive change in every aspect of life from health care and social services to new hardware and software solutions that allow people to live truly connected, healthier fulfilling lives.

Today’s 50+ year-olds control almost 80% of US aggregate net worth and they are increasingly more tech-savvy. They are heavy users of the Internet and social networking, they spend more money online than either Gen X or Gen Y consumers and they are looking for innovations to help them age well, including access to affordable and quality:

  • lifelong engagement and aging in community

  • medical care

  • economic security

  • service-enriched housing

  • mobility

  • assistance with activities of daily living

  • age-friendly products that are designed without stigma

  • radical advances in brain health and chronic disease management

Companies that fully grasp the opportunities generated by the Longevity Economy will enjoy a 106 million-plus market (in the U.S.) that is expected to spend $20 billion in 2020 for elder focused products and services alone.

The MIT Enterprise Forum is partnering with AGENCY - a co-working space for collective impact where innovators focused on aging and longevity can grow their companies - to help you understand this new world. Come learn about the Longevity Economy from industry thought leaders and entrepreneurs who are blazing the trail.

CREATING EFFECTIVE LEARNING STRATEGIES DURING CHANGE AND TRANSFORMATION

  • CIC Boston, Lighthouse East, 20th floor (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In response to driving forces that impact growth and profitability, organizations undertake a vast array of initiatives at speeds never seen before in all aspects of the business. This magnitude of changes puts learner engagement and learning outcomes at risk. At the same time, learning has a natural capacity to enable change, transformation and growth. How can we account for both in designing learning in the current environment?

Insects in the Anthropocene: Where Have They All Gone?

Insects. They are all around us, in our homes, on our skin, in our soil, and buzzing around our ears.  They fly, they dance, they sing, they swim, they pollinate. Some are huge and some are too tiny to see with the naked eye. Some we love for their beauty, others for their important ecological function, and others simply annoy us. Regardless, their survival is directly linked to ours (and ours to theirs!) and, unfortunately, many are in steep decline.

The evidence is mounting: the west-coast population of monarch butterflies has fallen by 90% over the last 20 years; the rusty-patched bumblebee, which was once found in 28 states, has declined by 87% in the same amount of time; and flying insects in German nature reserves have decreased by 75% in 27 years. We haven’t even identified all the insects on the planet, let alone their ecological function, yet many are dying with unknown consequences. And yet, you will hear anecdotes of booming insect populations or insects spreading well beyond their historical range, impacting the crops we eat and the forests we rely on.

So, what’s going on, why does it matter, and what can we do about it? Join us at BASG’s April 2nd event to find out with featured speakers. Learn more and RSVP here.

Long Now Boston: Reading Minds & Mastering Gentle Touch: Robotic Futures

Doors open @ 6pm --Come early and meet other Long Now thinkers-- Presentations start @ 7pm

A Long Now Boston Community Conversation with
Bruce Blumberg, Principal UX Engineer Universal Robots

Obtain tickets at Meetup, or click to Eventbrite for more options: https://roboticfutures.eventbrite.com
• CIC members use your discount at Eventbrite
• Students must use Eventbrite because we can't set up student tickets here

Our intelligence enables us to survive in the physical and social world. While we celebrate our vaunted cognitive abilities, they are a thin veneer for far more impressive abilities: interacting gracefully in the physical world and using pre-cognitive skill in predicting and responding to other social beings.

Bruce believes that physical awareness is a far more difficult and fundamental challenge for robotics than Artificial General Intelligence. The physical knowledge of our bodies, so easily acquired by humans, has proven incredibly difficult for roboticists to program and robots to learn. Deep learning algorithms can probe massive databases a billion times faster than a human, yet the most sophisticated robots struggle in dealing with edges and surfaces. Tasks that seem so easy for dogs and babies to master are baffling the robots.

Yet this seemingly modest goal will likely be easy compared to another challenging functionality–communication. Dogs may lack the capacity for abstract reasoning, but they expertly communicate and share reciprocal affection with their human companions–while ignoring the punches and hair-pulling of the toddler and avoiding Grandpa as he shuffles towards a chair. These talents are very difficult to decompose to the level required for robotic programming. And the learning environment for robotic assistants is unforgiving–one inadvertent physical mishap is one too many.

Join other Long Now Boston enthusiasts as Bruce shares his insights about the human/robot interface and the trajectory of the robotic future. We can envision human lives significantly enhanced by an orchestra of robotic devices with exquisite physical and robust communication skills. The challenges say something profound about the nature of the machines that will increasingly inhabit our world.

Among the questions the speakers will address:
Why is moving through the physical world so hard?
What are the ethical and technical challenges to robotic compassion?
What are the key milestones to a highly robotic future?
What should we do now to achieve the best result?

Join the conversation and be part of the solution.

$15 in advance // $20 at the door. Students w/ID admitted free.
Audience participation is encouraged.

About the speaker:
Bruce Blumberg is a Principal UX Engineer at Universal Robots, the world’s leading collaborative robot manufacturer. Previously, he was Research Fellow at Rethink Robotics, and held management positions at the MIT Media Lab, Blue Fang Games, Apple Computer and NeXT Computer. At Universal and Rethink, Bruce helped usher in the new age of collaborative robots. Rather than being caged for safety and programmed for a single purpose, collaborative robots are designed to be safe, small and economical and to work side by side with people. At Blue Fang, Bruce led the development of expressive, intelligent and engrossing animal characters, raising the bar for digital entertainment. Bruce was an associate professor at The MIT Media Lab and served as director of the Synthetic Characters Group leading groundbreaking research on behavior, learning and motor control for autonomous animated characters. Bruce earned an MS in management from the MIT Sloan School of Management and a PhD in media arts and sciences from the MIT Media Lab.

We’re proud and excited to welcome Bruce Blumberg to the Long Now Boston community.

Cambridge Innovation Center is an in-kind sponsor of this Long Now Boston conversation. We are very grateful for their support.
