Undergraduate Social Events

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics hosts events each semester to encourage our undergraduate and graduate students to get to know one another (and to get to know our faculty) outside of the classroom. Additional student events may be found on the Math Club webpage or you can subscribe to the Math Club email list for future announcements.

PAST EVENTS


Friday, April 24, 2015, in DMC 105, from 4pm to 6pm. 
MaStaPIZZAStics
- Dr. Raul Rojas
The Car of the Future - All modern cars are robots, and also computer networks on wheels.  In this talk I will describe the kind of sensors, computer and algorithms needed for connected and autonomous driving.  We can expect all new cars to be sold around 2017/18 to be able to communicate with each other and with the infrastructure.  This will require innovative automotive architectures able to deal with difficult security problems.  I will describe the kind of statistical and computational issues that have to be solved for such vehicles to become a reality.
Open to Undergrads, Grads, and Faculty, with free pizza and drinks.
