MEAM Seminar: “’Smart’ Biodegradable Polymer at Nano and Micro Scales for Medical Applications”

December 1, 2020 at 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

The ability to transform medical polymers, commonly used for resorbable surgical sutures, into desired 3D forms/shapes/structures at nano and micro scales with “smart” functions, while sustaining the materials’ excellent biocompatibility and biodegradability, provides significant applications in different biomedical fields, ranging from tissue engineering and controlled drug/vaccine delivery to medical devices. Here, I will present our […]

CIS Seminar: “Challenges of Incorporating Algorithms into Decision Making: Fairness, Welfare and Disparate Interactions”

December 1, 2020 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – Email CIS for link, cherylh@cis.upenn.edu + Google Map

Algorithms have entered the center of many decision making processes, either by providing predictions or assessments to facilitate human decision making or, in some scenarios, suggesting decisions directly. More and more attention has been placed to ensure algorithms satisfy some desirable notion of fairness, which is an important step forward. In this talk, I will […]
