“Autonomous Vehicles: Where Are We Going & How Will We Get There?
De-Fogging Your Shift from a Drive to a Trip”
Now that ubiquitous mobility for everyone is no longer a distant hypothetical, it’s time to consider the impacts of this coming transition on most of our lives. No one is better equipped to guide us through the complexities of this multi-faceted subject than Professor Alain Kornhauser, Faculty Chair of PAVE (Princeton Autonomous Vehicle Engineering). After introducing us to the terms; the technologies & role of deep learning; the major players & early adopters, his talk will explore economic/social costs & gains; the challenge of scaling; the milestones necessary for market acceptance --- and finally, the mechanics of managing it all.
Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents. On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton. As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting. Topics vary monthly and are always interesting! Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons.
DongWon Oh, a PhD candidate in the Psychology Department and part of the Social Perception Lab, will join PA3 on Friday January 12th. We know that impressions from faces are consequential, shaping important social outcomes. DongWon's recent empirical studies and computational models show that women are at a disadvantage because of gender biases in impressions.
Please join us. As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion!
Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary soft drink and coffee/tea. [**Wine/beer offered a la carte**]
Pre-registration is preferred.
>> Looking forward to seeing you...in your orange and black! <<
Date: Friday, January 12, 2018 Time: 12 noon - 2 pm Location: Nassau Club, 6 Mercer St, Princeton, NJ Nassau Club membership is not necessary to attend this event. Dress is business casual.

“Crowd Control: Swarm Engineering for Medicine & Biotechnology”
Daniel is returning to Princeton University as a new professor in the MAE Department, having earned his BSE in Mechanical Engineering – and completed joint Bioengineering doctoral work at UC Berkeley and UCSF, and post-doctoral training in Biology at Stanford. After research spanning bio-inspired robotics, dinosaur mechanics, genetic engineering, surgical implant design and nanotechnology, his focus has now turned to tissue engineering and biomaterials design: applying concepts from swarm theory (bird flocking and sheep herding) to develop new biomedical tools and techniques. After introducing swarm theory and its application to cellular systems, his talk will feature case studies from bioelectricity, biomaterials and machine learning that demonstrate how applying “swarm engineering” may transform how we: interact with living cells, heal ourselves and understand diseases.
