Discussion Panel: The Process of Engagement at COP-26

December 10, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Online

Much has been said about the outcomes of COP-26, the UN's latest Conference of the Parties on climate change. But what can we learn from the COP's process of engagement, especially for the many MIT researchers involved in cross-boundary collaborations? In this moderated panel, several COP attendees will describe their activities and offer lessons learned for future efforts. Speakers: Bethany Patten, Sloan Sustainability Initiative (TBC) Deepa Rao, Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) Greg Sixt, Abdul Latif Jameel Water and Food Systems Lab (J-WAFS) Luis Gilberto Murillo-Urrutia,…

Inference and Diffusion in Networks ABSTRACT Networks provide a powerful and unified framework to study complex systems. By abstracting systems down to entities and their connections, network models provide insight into the structure and dynamics of critical systems across multiple domains. In this thesis, we study diffusion in social networks. Diffusion through networked systems corresponds to numerous consequential processes, and we focus on epidemic spread and information diffusion. We study these processes by applying and extending ideas from statistical inference.…

The Geometry of Particle Collisions: Hidden in Plain Sight

December 3, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Jesse Thaler (MIT)

E18-304

Abstract: Since the 1960s, particle physicists have developed a variety of data analysis strategies for the goal of comparing experimental measurements to theoretical predictions.  Despite their numerous successes, these techniques can seem esoteric and ad hoc, even to practitioners in the field.  In this talk, I explain how many particle physics analysis tools have a natural geometric interpretation in an emergent "space" of collider events induced by the Wasserstein metric.  This in turn suggests new analysis strategies to interpret generic…
