Skule Lunch & Learn presents: An Experimentalist’s View on Trusting AI and Its BFF (Data) @ Online event
Apr 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

U of T Engineering Lunch & Learn

U of T Engineering alumni, join us for this monthly series.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now a part of the standard physical scientist’s tool kit, and it is regularly used to discover exciting new materials and processes. But AI is famously fickle, susceptible to data set bias and imbalance, subject to information leakage during training, and reliant on humans to evaluate its performance.

Professor Jason Hattrick-Simpers (MSE) discusses best practices for the implementation of AI techniques in the field of materials science, the challenges and successes of his research, and why he believes that robots can help us learn to better trust AI.

Read the abstracts and register for this free and exclusive event.

Disruptors & Dilemmas – The Future of Vaccine Production: Giving Canadian Biomanufacturing a Shot in the Arm @ Online event
May 3 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Disruptors & Dilemmas

5:30 p.m. – Virtual event opens
5:40 p.m. – Disruptors & Dilemmas panel
6:40 p.m. – Q&A
7:00 p.m. – Event ends

Join us on Tuesday, May 3rd for a special edition of Disruptors & Dilemmas, featuring alumni and faculty from U of T Engineering, the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, and the University of Toronto Mississauga.

The Future of Vaccine Production: Giving Canadian Biomanufacturing a Shot in the Arm

The COVID-19 pandemic exposed gaps in Canada’s preparedness to address great challenges in the biomanufacturing space, including domestic production of vaccines. Disruptors & Dilemmas asks a panel of multi-disciplinary experts to provide their insights on Canada’s response to COVID-19, and how the fields of chemistry, engineering, and pharmacy are equipped to address future global crises. Through exciting initiatives at the University of Toronto and beyond, our alumni and faculty hold the keys to unlocking the power of Canadian biomanufacturing to ensure that we are a world leader for the next great challenge.

This free virtual speaker panel will be moderated by Claire Kennedy, Co-Chair of the Defy Gravity Campaign and Former Chair of University of Toronto’s Governing Council. Guests will be invited to engage in Q&A with the panelists following the discussion.

Praxis III Showcase 2024:  Focus on Sustainability

Faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends are invited to see what EngSci’s Praxis III students have been up to.

This year’s Praxis III students worked on projects based in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.

Student teams collaborated with peers from U of T’s Faculty of Arts & Science and focused on design challenges aligned with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 1, 7, 8, 10, 11, and 12 grouped into three broad areas:

  • Sustainable Local Economics in a Globalized World
  • Sustainable Buildings & Energy Management
  • Sustainable Non-Industrial Solid Waste Management

Registration is required for alumni and external guests!

Attend as much or as little of either event as you like.  Please register by Wednesday, April 10.
NOTE:  Registration is not required for current U of T students, staff, and faculty.
