Since the Industrial Revolution, cities and industry have grown and evolved together. Despite this shared past, popular notions of urban industry tend to focus on the negative aspects of manufacturing: pollution, environmental degradation, and the exploitation of labor caused by industry.
Industrial Urbanism: Places of Production moves the conversation beyond these overly-simplified and overly-negative characterizations. It explores the relationship between current urban planning practices and the types of places that are actually designed and designated for the production of goods today. In the midst of shifting labor markets, technological changes, and resurgent metropolitan growth, the need to reimagine the role of industry in our cities is greater than ever.
The exhibition reexamines how industry can create place, sustain jobs, and promote environmental sustainability, all within the urban fabric.

Self-driving vehicles. Drivers on demand. Data-driven infrastructure. Vehicles that respond to passengers and to the environment. A sea change is happening in transportation, and mobility of the (near) future will be radically different than today - greener, more comfortable and more efficient. Innovations are rolling out of laboratories, businesses and city halls on four, two, (or zero) wheels at an accelerating pace, exploring the future of urban mobility.
The spotlight is focused on transportation technology and design - the machines that move people - yet there are a host of unanswered questions as transitions are made. This year, California began issuing drivers licenses to self-driving cars, but insurance companies still can't find who is at fault when something goes wrong. Cities are debating whether ride sharing systems should be banned from their streets, while taxi companies organize strikes around the world to protest citizen-driver services like Lyft and Uber. Policy and innovation must go hand in hand for innovations to take hold.
The Road Ahead is not just about emerging technologies - it will be a forum on all dimensions of future urban mobility, bringing leading theorists, dreamers, and practitioners into conversation and debate.
Get a taste of the ancient art of glassblowing in this fun one-night course. In one evening, you will learn about the history and process behind creating beautiful blown glass at the New Street Glass Studio. After learning the safety and studio etiquette rules, students will watch a brief demonstration of this 2000-year-old art before diving in and making their very own pumpkin from glass gathered out of a 2100-degree furnace. Students will choose their own colors and instructors will guide the class through the steps from gathering to applying colors, from blowing out the bubble to spinning it open to create each unique floppy shape. No experience is necessary and all materials are included.

Introduction: James E. Ryan, dean of the faculty; Charles William Eliot Professor of Education, HGSE
Claude Steele, internationally reknowned social scientist and Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, will discuss his theory of stereotype threat, which has been the focus of much of his research and writing throughout his academic career. The theory examines how people from different groups, being threatened by different stereotypes, can have quite different experiences in the same situation. It has also been used to understand group differences in performance ranging from the intellectual to the athletic. Steele's recent book, "Whistling Vivaldi: And Other Clues to How Stereotypes Affect Us and what we Can Do," published in 2010, was based on this research and lays out a plan to mitigate the negative effects of “stereotype threat”.

The problem of estimating the fraction of positive examples in a future unlabeled data set using a regression model trained on past labeled data is studied. It is shown that if the training data fraction is substantially different than that of the future sample then the straightforward estimate can be highly biased. A method for removing this bias is described assuming that the predictor variable distributions given class labels are the same in both samples. Diagnostics are presented for checking the validity of this assumption leading to a test for concept drift. It is shown that modifying the classification rule to reflect the actual fraction of positives in the future sample can often substantially improve classification accuracy. Extensions to multi-class classification and regression are presented.
