NYCRIN I-CorpsThe NYC Regional Innovation Node (NYCRIN) teaches the Innovation Corps (I-Corps) course using the Lean Launchpad curriculum based on Steve Blank’s Customer Development methodology and Alex Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas. As such, it demands that teams ‘Get out of the Building’, and spend the majority of their time talking to potential customers to discover how their technology could effectively ‘solve’ customers’ unmet needs or pain points. This program not only helps teams commercialize their specific research, but also teaches researchers how to approach their work by thinking about market needs earlier in the process. 

  • Lean LaunchPad is a hands-on program that immerses academic teams in testing their business model hypotheses outside the classroom. Inside the classroom, it deliberately trades off lecture time for student/teaching team interaction
  • Lean LaunchPad uses the Customer Development process and the Business Model Canvas to collapse the infinite possibilities of a startup into a solvable problem 
  • The online lectures (week 2-7) are delivered through Udacity

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The team must be from a university within New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or Connecticut
  • The technology must be at the proof-of-concept stage
  • The technology can be funded by any government agency but must be disclosed to the university’s Tech Transfer Office (TTO)
  • The team composition should include at least one EL, an IM, and the technology’s PI
    1. The Entrepreneurial Lead (EL) could be a post-doctoral scholar, graduate, or other student with relevant knowledge of the technology and a deep commitment to investigating the commercial landscape surrounding the innovation
    2. The I-Corps Mentor (IM) will typically be an experienced or emerging entrepreneur who operates in proximity to the institution and is experienced in transitioning technology out of academic labs
    3. The Principal Investigator (PI) must have disclosed the technology IP to the TTO and may or may not be actively involved in the team

Distinguished Lecture Series

The new age of water and climate information

Eric F. Wood
Princeton University

ABSTRACT:
Water is being recognized as a critical component of economic systems.  As globalization of manufacturing expands, so does the role of water in trade especially food trade.  This increased importance offers the need for improved information on climate, including climate variability since the economic systems must cope with extremes such as floods and droughts.  The seminar will offer some examples of the increased importance of tracking water through virtual water trade, the value of water and climate information for sectors such as agricultural management, and the necessity of understanding climate variability and its impact on drought.

BIO: 
Eric F. Wood holds the Susan Dod Brown Professorship in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University, where he has taught since 1976.  He received his undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering at the University of British Columbia (Canada) and his Sc.D. in Civil Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  His research area is in hydro-climatology with an emphasis on the modeling and analysis of the global water and energy cycles through land surface modeling, satellite remote sensing, and data analysis.  His foci include the monitoring and forecasting of drought, hydrologic impacts from climate change, and seasonal hydrological forecasting.  He participates in WCRP's Global Energy and Water EXchange (GEWEX) activities to develop long-term Climate Data Records of the terrestrial surface heat flux data sets for climate studies.  He is/has been a Science Team member on the NASA Aqua/Terra AMSR-E and MODIS instruments, the NASA Global Precipitation Mission (GMP) mission and the NASA  soil moisture SMAP mission.  During his academic career he has been the primary advisor to 32 PhD students, 8 Masters students, and has mentored 22 post-doctoral researchers and 10 visiting students and researchers.

ECE seminar series: Real-time knowledge discovery and decision making with Big Data

Babbio Center, Room 220

Real-time knowledge discovery and decision making with Big Data

 

BY Jie Xu

University of California, Los Angeles

 

ABSTRACT

As the world becomes ever more connected and instrumented, decision-makers have ever more rapid access to ever changing and growing streams of data – but this makes the decision-maker’s problems ever more complex as well, because it is impossible to learn everything in the time frame in which decisions must be made. What the decision-maker must do, therefore, is to discover in real time what is relevant in the enormous stream of data and use the relevant information to make good decisions. This talk presents a systematic framework and associated algorithms that enable a decision-maker to do this, and shows how to use them in real-time traffic prediction as an application scenario. With the vast availability of traffic sensors from which traffic information can be derived in real-time, a lot of research effort has been devoted to developing traffic prediction techniques, which in turn improve route navigation, traffic regulation, urban area planning and etc. One key challenge in traffic prediction is how much to rely on prediction models that are constructed using historical data in real-time traffic situations. Our decision framework learns from the current traffic situation in real-time and predicts the future traffic by matching the current situation to the most effective prediction model. When the traffic prediction involves multiple distributed learners but only the feedback about the overall effect of their decisions is available, we also propose fast learning algorithms by exploiting the informativeness of the global feedback. The algorithms we propose yield strong performance guarantees for both the long run and the short run. The applications are numerous besides traffic prediction, including patient monitoring, surveillance, social networks etc.

University Lecture Co-Sponsored by the Office of the President and the Office of the Provost - Improving Collective Decision Making and Performance: Why Diversity Matters – Dr. Scott Page

Stevens Institute of Technology, DeBaun Auditorium

Why can teams of people find better solutions than brilliant individuals working alone? And why are the best group decisions and predictions those that draw upon the very qualities that make each of us unique?

On September 18, 2014, Dr. Scott Page will present the university-wide lecture titled “Improving Collective Decision Making and Performance: Why Diversity Matters.” Dr. Page, Director of the Center for the Study of Complex Systems at the University of Michigan, is an expert on improving collective performance and decision-making.

Dr. Page’s key insight: Groups made up of intelligent people who have different perspectives, mindsets and ways of solving problems can make more accurate predictions and solve problems more effectively than groups of ‘experts.’

Attendance for this event is open to all Stevens faculty, students, staff and invited guests.

The Business of Perception and Images

Babbi 122 & Atrium

Jim Cummins, Award-Winning American Photojournalist

There have never been textbooks or manuals on the future of imaging (still photography and video). And courses on imaging have always been unable to anticipate the emerging changes to and rapid pace of innovation in photography. Such as the tectonic changes that hit the profession when autofocus replaced manual focus and when digital imaging replaced film imaging. We've been living in a period where we're inventing it as we go along, and the pace of change is accelerating. The only way to learn the art of imaging and keep up with the constant change is to shoot, shoot, shoot ... and then shoot

The field of imaging is about to undergo another tectonic change: during the coming twelve months, I expect that more photojournalists will be using smartphones as their primary capture medium than traditional cameras and using tablets instead of laptops for managing their photos. With smartphone and tablet apps producing fantastic and very high quality images, this will be the biggest change for the profession since we switched from film to digital.  It's inevitable.

Already, there are smartphones that can capture images equivalent to a number of high-end DSLR's, in terms of color, resolution and dynamic range, such as the Nokia Lumia 1020 Phone, which comes with a 41 megapixel camera and a Zeiss lens. Jim has taken the lead in using a camera/phone for everything, including combining still photography and video, contingent on the customers’ demand. The results can be seen in his photos. I use this smartphone in combination with a tablet running Windows RT. The Nokia 1020 has an optional high-capacity battery/grip which gives it not only extra battery life but a solid SLR-like grip that makes it easy to hold and very comfortable to shoot with.

Jim Cummins is an award-winning American photojournalist whose work is well-known from the many photographs he has taken of legendary rock, rhythm and blues, soul, jazz, country/western and gospel performers of the 1960's through the early 1980's. Over 900 music albums from that era, many of which went Gold, Platinum and Diamond, used Jim's photographs as their album covers. Many of his other photographs of legendary performers of that era were published as magazine covers and in feature articles in magazines such as Newsweek, Rolling Stone and Life Magazine. Two of Jim's album covers won Album Cover of The Year awards, and Jim's design for the cover of the groundbreaking November, 1967 issue of Newsweek Magazine, devoted to the civil rights issues confronting America during the 1960s, won the National Magazine Award.

Born in 1944 in New York City, Jim attended New York City's High School of Music & Art and studied art, drawing and painting at the New York City's Museum of Modern Art, at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and at the Art Students League of New York. Jim began his career as a photojournalist working for Newsweek Magazine from 1965 through 1970. During that period, Jim also worked for almost all of the major music labels, including Atlantic Records, Columbia Records, Capitol Records, Mercury Records, Savoy Records, Springboard Records, and London Records. Jim has also been a staff photographer for the NBA, Black Enterprise Magazine, the New York Times and Newsday.

CAL Lecture: Mark Schubin '71, "The Fandom of the Opera: How the Audience for a Centuries-Old Art Form Helped Create Modern Media Technology"

Stevens Institute of Technology

ABSTRACT
Believe it or not, electronic home entertainment was invented for opera audiences. So were consumer headphones, movies, newscasts, and pay-cable. The first sportscasts were in opera houses. The first wireless broadcast? The first commercial digital recording? The first live subtitles? All opera.

The idea of transmitting opera motion pictures and sounds live to theaters worldwide appeared in print in 1877, to homes in 1882. Without opera, there might not be communications satellites. And, according to pioneering radiologist Percy Brown, “No opera, no X-rays!”

The first opera recordings were made 17 years before Edison’s first phonograph, and 76 years before that an automaton played opera music for Marie Antoinette. In the 21st century, labs around the world are working on ultra-high-speed communications systems for opera and have discussed neutrino communications and quantum entanglement. 

Galileo, Kepler, Lavoisier, Matisse – all had opera-technology connections. Stereo sound? The laryngoscope? Broadcast rights? All for opera. Really. Come and be amazed.

BIOGRAPHY
