Too Many Americans: Overpopulation and the Crisis of Abundance

-

Location: B001 Geddes Hall

Angela Allan

Professor Angela Allan examines a unique moment in the history of the cold war. While the threat of nuclear annihilation still loomed overhead, a new global threat emerged as Americans became increasingly anxious about a growing world population and shrinking resources, as scientists like Paul Ehrlich and Garrett Hardin predicted catastrophic effects. These fears forced Americans to reassess their conception of “the American way of life,” politically, economically, socially—and for the purposes of this talk—culturally.…

A Supervised Learning Problem and Compressed Sensing

Learning the underlying process from a finite set of input-output observations is an important but challenging task in various scientific disciplines. The learned model will then be helpful to study the mathematical fundamental of the learning process and to make future predictions. In general, this data-based learning problem is ill-posed due to the nonlinearity of the unknown function and the complicated properties of given data. One of the main directions is to investigate the sparsity-of-effect in the data-driven methods to select a suitable model. Along this direction, we study the problem of learning nonlinear functions from various types of data ranging from independent to weakly dependent data. We provide a reconstruction guarantee for the associated l1-optimization problem, given that the data is bounded and satisfies a suitable concentration inequality. When the amount of given data is limited, especially in high dimensional spaces, we propose a sampling strategy to guarantee a reconstruction. This is joint work with Rachel Ward (UT Austin), Hayden Schaeffer (CMU

Location: Jordan Hall of Science, Auditorium 105

Mark Kubik, MD

Title: “Update on HPV Related Oropharyngeal Cancer – Implications for Public Health / Vaccination Programs”

Mark Kubik’s primary clinical and research focus is on head and neck surgical oncology and reconstructive surgery.

His research interests include human papilloma virus (HPV) related oropharyngeal cancer, optimizing functional outcomes following microvascular reconstruction, and robotic surgery.Dr. Kubik’s primary clinical interests include oncologic surgery for tumors of the head and neck region, including skull base, thyroid, and salivary gland. He has a specific clinical expertise in microvascular reconstruction following trauma or cancer surgery. His goals for patient care include a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to each patient to provide the best cure, quality of life, and cosmesis.Dr. Kubik, graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2009 and then received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine. He completed his residency in Otolaryngology at the University of Pittsburgh before pursuing a fellowship in Head and Neck Oncologic and Microvascular Surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina. Following fellowship, he joined the faculty as an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center with joint appointments in Otolaryngology and Plastic Surgery.…
