  • Register for workshop on unconscious bias in faculty searches
  • October 19, 2017

    ISU ADVANCE and the Cornell Interactive Theatre Ensemble (CITE) will host a workshop on unconscious bias in faculty searches on Tuesday, Oct. 24, in the Memorial Union South Ballroom.

    In this interactive workshop designed for department chairs, faculty and search committee members, participants watch a filmed scenario of a search committee meeting, as five search team members begin to articulate their opinions about candidates for a short list. Following the scenario, participants have an opportunity to ask one of the characters questions about the meeting. The CITE facilitator conducts a guided discussion of the participants’ responses to the scenario and the characters. This discussion is followed by a research talk on unconscious bias, describing the studies used to develop the interactions depicted in the scenario. The session concludes with a discussion of best practices for addressing unconscious bias in searches.

    Participants may choose the morning (9-11 a.m.) or afternoon (1-3 p.m.) session. Pre-registration is required via Learn@ISU (read instructions for how to register) by Thursday, Oct. 12, and will be closed when program capacity is reached, so register soon! The program is co-sponsored by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences ADVANCE; Colleges of Business, Design, Engineering, Human Sciences, Liberal Arts and Sciences and Veterinary Medicine; University Library, Office of the Vice President and Provost, Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion and Department of Psychology.

  • Visualizing New York City Taxi Travel Patterns & Exploring Potential of Autonomous Taxis

    Visualizing New York City Taxi Travel Patterns and Exploring Potential of Autonomous Taxis

    Advisor: Dr. Jing Dong

    Abstract: This project studies the potential of autonomous taxi in New York City (NYC) by conducting a spatial analysis of temporal travel patterns of the yellow taxi in one-week (Oct 13th 2013to Oct 19th2013) period. The map of total number of pick-ups and drop-offs are created to visualize the most frequented locations. Wednesday (Oct 16th) and Saturday (Oct 19th) are selected to represent for weekday and weekend. The map of total numbers of pick-ups and drop-offs are displayed hourly for these two days. The empty trip travel route for Wednesday (Oct 16th) is reconstructed to estimate the total empty-trip distance and total empty-trip time using the network analyst tool. To explore the relationship between real travel distance and straight-line distance. One random taxi is selected and its route for that day is displayed. The new route is going to have the same first trip, but the next pick-up location is going to be assigned to him based on the closest pick-up location of that 10-min period of that day. Keeping assigning it route until it meets its original travel time. By displaying the assigned route and the original route. Comparing total empty trip distance and the total empty trip time of these two trips. The autonomous taxis are able to improve the efficiency greatly. However, this is feasible for small amount of taxis in NYC and not feasible for all 10,032 yellow taxis in NYC.

  • Energy Efficiency Innovation Seminar on Smart Buildings
  • 02:30 pm

    The German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest, Inc. (GACC Midwest) will host Energy Efficiency Innovation Seminars on Smart Buildings at four Midwestern universities: Iowa State, Illinois State, Michigan State and Northwestern.

  • Workshop on Open Science Framework: A Research Workflow Tool
  • 10:30 am

    Part of the challenge of making research more transparent and reproducible is logistical. The Open Science Framework (OSF) is a free project-management service and repository where researchers — using their own tools and processes — can collaborate within their research groups and choose components of their research for broader dissemination. This workshop will be a hands-on tour of the features of the OSF as participants create a reproducible project from start to finish. Co-hosted by the Office of the Vice President for Research and the University Library. Register online.
