解决H.L.之谜汉利

在150多年的历史继续医学之谜:联盟国潜艇H.L.汉利是第一个作战潜艇击沉战舰,攻击和查尔斯顿港休沙通尼克下沉USS并从历史中消失,直到1995年发现了港口的海底。发现时,船体已经从爆炸有点明显的损坏。那么,究竟是怎么潜艇H.L.船员汉利死吗?在他们的驻地发现船员的遗体。没有明显的企图逃脱,无创伤性损伤它们的头骨,骨头的证据。有许多假说,包括低氧,高碳酸血症,或从杀了人驾驶的汉利的休沙通尼克幸运一声枪响。

保持绿灯上:电力系统的灵活性和安全性的低碳国家电力市场

The need to fight climate change is motivating the development of low-carbon power systems based on variable renewable energy (VRE) sources such as wind and solar. Due to their variability and unpredictability, these sources call for larger system flexibility requirements. At the same time, VRE sources are economically displacing conventional generators powered by fossil fuels which are the traditional providers of system flexibility. 教授皮耶路易吉mancarella 介绍了关键可取的技术经济特点,以应对低碳,低惯性电力系统运行。

信任和网络安全:在搜索一个多学科的理论与实践

网络安全 has become a global priority, but it encompasses a set of problems that are difficult to resolve. This is due, in part, to its multi-disciplinary nature. The broad definition of cybersecurity encompasses a range of subfields, from computer and network security to cryptography, psychology, human behavior, economics, policy, and international collaboration. The interplay of the subjects is important for the theory and practice in cybersecurity, but the underlying relationships between the components of the big picture remain elusive. Presented by 克莱尔vishik全球网络安全主管,SPE,英特尔公司。

化学分离:在世界能源预算的一个重要领域

Processes used to separate chemicals into pure forms account for an astonishing 10–15% of all energy used by our global society. The products of these processes underpin all aspects of modern life. This lecture will explain where all this energy goes and describe approaches that are being developed that can radically reduce the energy associated with chemical separations. Presented by 教授大卫·sholl, School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology.

隐患:普通消费类产品和室内环境

Contrary to popular belief, most of our exposure to hazardous pollutants occurs in places we consider safe—indoor environments, such as homes, schools, and workplaces. Primary sources of these pollutants are also considered safe—everyday consumer products, such as cleaning supplies, air fresheners, and personal care products. However, indoor air environments are generally unregulated, and consumer products are not required to disclose all ingredients. Even so-called ‘green’ products can emit hazardous pollutants, similar to regular products. In this Dean’s Lecture, 教授安妮史丹利蒙 将讨论我们的消费产品和室内环境的隐患,并提供切实可行的解决方案。

在复杂的地下流体模拟引导工程

Already a world leader in mineral exploration and mining, Australia is increasingly extracting unconventional hydrocarbon resources including coal seam gas. To offset greenhouse gas emissions, Australia simultaneously fosters research and field demonstration projects on carbon geo-sequestration. These combined developments imply future subsurface engineering activities on an unprecedented scale. Yet their environmental impact and sustainability already are focal point of public debate. In this lecture, 教授斯蒂芬·马, Department of Infrastructure Engineering, will examine how computer-simulation based analysis and insights from complex systems science can help to assess the performance and environmental impact of subsurface engineering projects so that potential side effects can be eliminated prior to project implementation. More physical realism and a different approach to simulation are prerequisites for achieving this objective, as will be illustrated with hydrocarbon recovery from structurally challenging reservoirs and carbon dioxide injection management.

算法的社会生活

Arguments around the rise of automation and associated digital technology advances have traditionally focused on deskilling and the transformation of work. Lately, a new focus has emerged around the role of algorithms as things that shape our lives. Algorithms dispatch us taxis, evaluate our credit-worthiness, assess the security risks of online transactions, and choose which ads we see. They drive online dating sites, and gather the search results that help us decide on what to eat for dinner and where.

Algorithms aren’t just technical objects; they’re also social objects that play a role in the organisation of everyday sociality, and are the outcome of the social actions of organisations, professions, regulators, and lawmakers. Together, algorithms and data come to constitute a new way of understanding and talking about society and ourselves.

教授保罗·多里什介绍,本次讲座将讨论算法的社会生活 - 无论我们如何来理解算法为对象,使他们在行动和在我们的世界带来的后果。

澳大利亚脱碳电力:政策和技术备选方案

The debate on how we might decarbonise Australian electricity continues to be charged and confusing. On policy, whilst we currently have Direct Action and a Renewable Energy Target (RET), others advocate a carbon price or other approaches. On technology, some support only renewables, whilst others think that we must embrace nuclear or carbon capture and storage (CCS).
