Finding Online Extremists in Social Networks

April 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Tauhid Zaman (MIT)


Abstract Online extremists in social networks pose a new form of threat to the general public. These extremists range from cyber bullies who harass innocent users to terrorist organizations such as ISIS that use social networks to spread propaganda.

Community-based and Peer-to-peer Electricity Markets

April 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Pierre Pinson ( Technical University of Denmark )

MIT Building E18, Room 304

Abstract The deployment of distributed renewable generation capacities, new ICT capabilities, as well as a more proactive role of consumers, are all motivating rethinking electricity markets in a more distributed and consumer-centric fashion. After motivating the design of various forms of consumer-centric electricity markets, we will focus on two alternative constructs (which could actually be unified) consisting in community-based and peer-to-peer electricity markets. The mathematical framework for these markets will be described, with focus on negotiation and clearing algorithms in…

A Rationally Designed Biomolecular Integral Feedback Control System for Robust Gene Regulation

May 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Mustafa Khammash ( ETH Zurich )


Abstract Humans have been influencing the DNA of plants and animals for thousands of years through selective breeding. Yet it is only over the last 3 decades or so that we have gained the ability to manipulate the DNA itself and directly alter its sequences through the modern tools of genetic engineering. This has revolutionized biotechnology and ushered in the era of synthetic biology. Among the possible applications enabled by synthetic biology is the design and engineering of feedback control…
