SSE SEMINAR: Paul Grogan "Interoperable Simulation Gaming: Towards Collaborative Design"

Babbio 203

SSE Seminar Series
Interoperable Simulation Gaming: Towards Collaborative Design
BY Paul T. Grogan, Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Research Associate - Engineering Systems Division
Massachusetts Institute of Technology


ABSTRACT: Traditional systems engineering methods cannot easily accommodate distributed authority in design. Infrastructure systems are one such case which involve multiple actors across interrelated sectors. Strategic interdependencies such as the popularized “water-energy-food nexus” pose challenges to achieving sustainability objectives by coupling decisions across organizational boundaries with barriers to collaboration.  Interoperable simulation gaming is an approach to address interdependencies across system boundaries during conceptual design. It builds on methods and tools developed for military wargaming to embed technical models in a social activity with explicit treatment of distributed authority. This seminar introduces three topics to advance interoperable simulation gaming in infrastructure systems planning:

  1. The Infrastructure System-of-Systems (ISoS) modeling framework defines an interoperability interface for infrastructure system models,
  2. The IEEE Standard 1516 High Level Architecture (HLA) implements time synchronization and data transport for distributed simulations, and
  3. A prototype infrastructure planning game contextually similar to historical Saudi Arabia considers decisions in water, energy, and agricultural sectors to study collaborative design.

Results of an initial human subjects experiment show synchronous simulation with the HLA supports more frequent data exchange compared to asynchronous input/output files and data exchange frequency is correlated with achieving shared objectives. Conclusions emphasize the role for new design methods and tools to improve human perception of complex systems.

BIOGRAPHY: Dr. Grogan is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Engineering Systems Division at MIT. He holds a B.S. degree in Engineering Mechanics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a S.M. degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT. He was awarded a NDSEG fellowship in 2010 and earned his Ph.D. in Engineering Systems from MIT in 2014. His research studies the collaborative design of systems using interactive simulations (games). Past research domains include logistics of human spaceflight, fractionated and federated spacecraft, and infrastructure at city and national levels.

The Challenges and Rewards of Operating at High Velocity

Murray Hill, NJ

Howe School Alliance for Technology Management Roundtable

Operating at faster speed – ‘higher velocity’ – is often associated with organizational success. Yet organizations “slow down,” for a number of reasons. As Steven Spear proclaimed in The High Velocity Edge, highly successful organizations in a wide variety of fields can be distinguished from less successful ones in terms of the speed at which they “create and deploy useful knowledge.” Attempts to increase velocity, however, have also been associated with taking unnecessary risks, and often require difficult cultural and systemic changes.

Special Lecture on Leadership Hosted by President Nariman Farvardin, featuring Josh S. Weston, Former CEO and Chairman of Automatic Data Processing (ADP)

DeBaun Auditorium (reception immediately following in Babbio Atrium)

Abstract: From his many years of leadership at a Fortune 250 company, Dr. Josh Weston possesses wide-ranging experience in leading successful organizations. In an interactive discussion, Weston packages his leadership savvy into key insights that go beyond the data and traditional textbook rules to guide emerging leaders on advancing their skills and influence. His lecture considers the critical human component of leadership, and the profound effects of corporate culture on guiding a company and its people to success.

BiographyJosh S. Weston was the CEO and Chairman of Automatic Data Processing (ADP) for more than 15 years. ADP now serves more than 500,000 employers in 100 countries, employers, primarily with payroll, tax, and benefits services.  During his tenure, ADP had concluded 164 consecutive fiscal quarters of double digit growth in revenue and earnings.

Weston holds a BS in Economics from the City College of NY (CCNY), and a Masters in Economics from the University of New Zealand (as a Fulbright scholar). He holds several honorary doctorate degrees, including one from Stevens (in Engineering).

He is an active pro bono member of many nonprofit boards, including Liberty Science Center, FIRST Robotics, KIPP-NJ Charter schools, The International Rescue Committee and the Safe Water Network (with 80 water stations in India and Ghana). In prior years, he served on many corporate boards, including PSEG, J. Crew and Pathmark.

High-Impact Innovation: Reflections on creating the CASL, running a hedge fund, composing the world’s ugliest music, solving crimes for the FBI & working for the world’s most innovative company

BY Scott Rickard
Vice President, Data Science - Salesforce

ABSTRACT: The interesting stuff happens at the edges, where different disciplines overlap. In my experience, often the most interesting solutions are found by people working in areas considered to be slightly (or wholly) outside their supposed area of expertise. In this talk, I will tell a number of stories from my past about multi-disciplinary research success and failure. Some of these stories may even be true.


Bio: Scott Rickard is VP for Data Science at Salesforce. Prior to joining Salesforce, he served as CEO of Probability Dynamics, a hedge fund run out of Dublin's IFSC. For many years he was an Associate Professor in the School of Electronic, Electrical and Communications Engineering at University College Dublin (UCD) where he was the Founding Director of UCD's Complex & Adaptive Systems Laboratory (the CASL). Prior to UCD, he worked for a decade with Siemens Corporate Research applying machine learning to industrial research problems, including developing a source separation tool used by the FBI. He is also the co-founder of ScienceWithMe!, an educational website dedicated to presenting scientific concepts in engaging ways for children. He has a B.S. in Mathematics, a B.S. in Computer Science, and a M.S. in Electrical Engineering from M.I.T., and MA and PhD degrees in Applied and Computational Mathematics from Princeton University. His research interests include multidisciplinary research, big data science, computational and mathematical finance, sparse signal processing, time-frequency/scale analysis, blind source localization and separation, simulation and extreme events in human society, multiuser frequency-hop communication systems, Costas arrays, ugly music, and science/mathematics outreach.
