    Psychology's annual Hunsberger lecture presents Dr. Ronni Michelle Greenwood, from the University of Limerick, Ireland. She takes an ecological approach to understanding chronic homelessness and the kinds of approaches taken to resolving it.

  • 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM MS2 Discovery Institute Seminar Series: Applying Machine Learning in Vehicle Manufacturing

    Vehicles are very complex systems, with a huge intersection of mechanical and electrical components and built in software control functions. As a result, there is a huge amount of data being generated from the systems within a car, much more than can be handled by most diagnostic tools. To continue ensuring a high level of quality and operational efficiency, manufacturers are turning to AI. However, there are numerous challenges that make application of approaches that work well in research difficult in a real-life manufacturing environment. The discussion will focus on some prominent challenges with data quality, dynamic and continuously changing data streams, and scalable deployment of models.
