Celebrate two WSE milestones on Feb 5
Feb 5 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

From 3 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5 at the Hopkins Club, the Whiting School of Engineering will celebrate two milestones:

  • Naming Ilya Shpitser as a John C. Malone Assistant Professor
  • Announcing the formation of the Whiting School of Engineering’s Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare

RSVP by February 2.

Ilya Shpitser, in the Department of Computer Science, will hold the John C. Malone Assistant Professorship, one of a series of professorships provided by John C. Malone, MS ’64, PhD ’69 to help recruit and retain faculty with the goal of improving healthcare using a systems-based approach. A data/inference specialist who focuses on inferring cause-effect relationships, Ilya will be a member of the new center. His research includes all areas of causal inference and missing data, particularly using graphical models. Recently, his work has helped distinguish between causation and association in observational medical data. Ilya started at Johns Hopkins as an assistant professor this summer, received his PhD under the supervision of Judea Pearl at UCLA, was a postdoctoral scholar in the program on causal inference at the School of Public Health at Harvard, and was a lecturer in statistics at the University of Southampton.
The Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare, under the leadership of Greg Hager, the Mandell Bellmore Professor in the Department of Computer Science, is a multidisciplinary research initiative that will foster partnerships among engineers, clinicians, and scientists across Johns Hopkins University to catalyze, develop, and deploy innovations aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare.

John Malone has been remarkably generous in his support of Johns Hopkins, including a gift for the construction and naming of Malone Hall. The building, which opened in 2014, is designed to advance cutting-edge collaborative and translational research and has set a new standard for academic research facilities at Johns Hopkins. The Whiting School is grateful for Dr. Malone’s continued support of professorships and the naming of this new center in the Whiting School of Engineering.

JHU Robotics Industry Day 2017
Mar 22 @ 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
JHU Robotics Industry Day 2017 @ Hackerman Hall, Johns Hopkins University - Homewood Campus | Baltimore | Maryland | United States

The Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics will highlight its elite robotics students and showcase cutting-edge research projects in areas that include Medical Robotics, Extreme Environments Robotics, Human-Machine Systems for Manufacturing, BioRobotics and more. JHU Robotics Industry Day will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Hackerman Hall on the Homewood Campus at Johns Hopkins University.

Robotics Industry Day will provide top companies and organizations in the private and public sectors with access to the LCSR’s forward-thinking, solution-driven students. The event will also serve as an informal opportunity to explore university-industry partnerships.

You will experience dynamic presentations and discussions, observe live demonstrations, and participate in speed networking sessions that afford you the opportunity to meet Johns Hopkins most talented robotics students before they graduate.

Registration is free, but required. Register here.

Gallery Reception for Extreme Materials and Conditions: Common Ground between Art and Science
Apr 26 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

A capstone exhibition of works developed over a one-year residency with the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute.

Milton S. Eisenhower Library, Q Level
3400 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, MD 21218

Artist Talk 5:30 – 6 PM

Extreme is a word often used to consider the outermost limits. We strive to find the boundaries of our existence, yet we assume that those bounds can always be pushed further. This exhibition of photographs and sculptural works uses analogy and storytelling to playfully describe how HEMI is pushing the extreme boundaries of materials, time, and scale through their research. The audience is invited to consider the imagination required to observe and test a world that is so far beyond our given, natural senses.
