Safety characteristics of ITER - First fusion machine undergoing full
Monday, August 06, 2012
MIT, Building NW17-218
Speaker: Carlos Alejaldre, ITER Deputy Director-General
Plasma Science and Fusion Center Special Seminar
After "Fukushima" the safety of nuclear installations is being
revisited all over the world, following the principle of "imagine the
unimaginable." ITER, classified in France as a "Basic Nuclear
Installation," is no exception; it is undergoing a strict process of
technical and public examination in order to get its nuclear license.
In this talk the licensing process of ITER, the safety characteristics
of ITER (and by extension of fusion) will be presented with a
particular emphasis on the identification of risks and their possible
impact on people and the environment, as well as the status of the

Using Computational Tools for Piecing Together Small Trees into the
Large Tree of Life
Wednesday, August 8 2012
1:00PM to 2:00PM
MIT, Building 32-G449, Kiva, 32 Vassar Street, Cambridge
Speaker: Sagi Snir, University of Haifa, Israel
The reconstruction of evolutionary trees is a fundamental task in
Biology. The increasing amount of available genomic sequences over
thousands of taxa, gave rise to the task of large scale phylogenetic
reconstruction. Since accurate reconstruction is limited to few dozens
of taxa, the supertree approach, aims at accurately reconstructing
small trees over overlapping taxa sets and subsequently amalgamate
these trees into a tree over the full taxa set. Perhaps the simplest
version of this task that is still widely applicable, yet quite
challenging, is quartet based reconstruction. This problem lies at the
root of many tree reconstruction methods and theoretical as well as
experimental results have been reported. Nevertheless, fundamental
problems such as dealing with conflicting quartet trees or even with
arbitrary congruent quartet trees remain problematic.
In a series of works we have developed a graph theoretically based
approach for the supertree task. Our approach is based on a divide and
conquer algorithm where our divide step uses a semi- definite
programming (SDP) formulation of MaxCut in a graph representing
relationships between the organisms. We devised an extremely fast SDP-
like heuristic that allows us to extend the input data from several
thousands of quartet trees over few dozens of species to tens of
millions of quartet trees over thousands of species. These results are
promising in the realm of large scale phylogenetic reconstruction.
Based on works with Satish Rao and Raphy Yuster. The talk is self-
contained and requires no prior knowledge in Biology.

Comparing Boston v. SiliconValley & NYC w/ Social Media
Tuesday, August 14, 2012
6:30 PM To 7:30 PM
Microsoft New England Research and Development Center, 1 Memorial
RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/Boston-Predictive-Analytics/events/71583112/
Price: $5.00/per person
The $5 fee will first go to pizza (50%), then charity as described
below (25%) and some O’Reilly books (25%) to be given away to the
group. The fee is towards reducing no-shows which range anywhere from
30-50% of rsvps when there is a free event. Please note there is a no-
pizza, $2.50 for charity, session #2 at 7:45.
Boston's Meetup Tech and Business scene has grown stronger; however
Silicon Valley and New York City have both higher adoption and scale.
What might Boston do to improve its Tech and Biz community landscape?
Social Network Analysis and Machine Learning are used on data pulled
from Meetup's API. The talk will cover the application-side,
analytics using R, and some on pulling data via an API.
This talk is a follow-up to the "Utilizing Meetup to Analyze Boston,
Silicon Valley and NYC" presentation I gave back February. This
extension includes additional Social Network and Machine Learning
analysis towards addressing questions such as "What specific Meetup
Groups would be helpful for Boston towards improving its tech and biz
scene relative to Silicon Valley and NYC?"
There are two main layers of the presentation:
(1) Regional Comparisons: Silicon Valley, not surprisingly, has a
higher percentage of tech and business groups than either NYC or
Boston. NYC is slightly above the national average; whereas Boston
has an on-par tech scene, though lower than average percentage of
business groups. This will be explored in more detail.
(2) Analytics: Social Network Analysis and Machine Learning as a
means to describe different communities. "R" (tnet and RTextTools
libraries among others) was used with data originating primarily from
the Meetup API.
Please note the talk is low on hardcore Computer Science, i.e. there
is not going to be discussion of achieving 99.999% accuracy using 20
different models ensembled together ala Amazon or Netflix. Please
refer to Stanford's Online Learning website (www.coursera.org) which
has a great ML course; and both Coursera and Udacity have upcoming
Social Network Analysis courses. It would be great to have a 2-hour
ML event; however this is not the time for it.
The fee, which is to reduce the no-shows/waitlist, will partially be
given to charities. One thought is to have the donations given to a
local non-profit for whom Meetup could be a benefit (much as it has
shown to be in tech and biz communities). Interestingly, this brings
up a different set of questions including "What is the adoption rate
of Meetup in inner cities?" As of this time I don't know which
organization; however there's time to explore this before the event,
and I may be able to go back into the Meetup data and local economic
data to see if those sources can be helpful. If you are interested in
helping out in identifying a non-profit organization, then please let

CEA Solar Hot Water Grants
Cambridge, through the Cambridge Energy Alliance initiative, is
offering a limited number of grants to residents and businesses for
solar hot water systems. The grants will cover 50% of the remaining
out of pocket costs of the system after other incentives, up to $2,000.
Applications will be accepted up to November 19, 2012 and are
available on a first come, first serve basis until funding runs out.
The Cambridge grant will complement other incentives including the
Massachusetts Clean Energy Center solar thermal grants. For more
Cambridge Residents: Free Home Thermal Images
Have you ever wanted to learn where your home is leaking heat by
having an energy auditor come to your home with a thermal camera?
With that info you then know where to fix your home so it's more
comfortable and less expensive to heat. However, at $200 or so, the
cost of such a thermal scan is a big chunk of change.
HEET Cambridge has now partnered with Sagewell, Inc. to offer
Cambridge residents free thermal scans.
Sagewell collects the thermal images by driving through Cambridge in a
hybrid vehicle equipped with thermal cameras. They will scan every
building in Cambridge (as long as it's not blocked by trees or
buildings or on a private way). Building owners can view thermal
images of their property and an analysis online. The information is
password protected so that only the building owner can see the results.
Homeowners, condo-owners and landlords can access the thermal images
and an accompanying analysis free of charge. Commercial building
owners and owners of more than one building will be able to view their
images and analysis for a small fee.
The scans will be analyzed in the order they are requested.
Go to Sagewell.com. Type in your address at the bottom where it says
"Find your home or building" and press return. Then click on "Here"
to request the report.
That's it. When the scans are done in a few weeks, your building will
be one of the first to be analyzed. The accompanying report will help
you understand why your living room has always been cold and what to
do about it.
With knowledge, comes power (or in this case saved power and money,
not to mention comfort).

Install programmable thermostats (saving up to 10% of your heating bill)
Install water efficiency devices (saving up to 10% of your water bill)
Check the combustion safety of your heating and hot water equipment
Evaluate your home’s energy use to create an energy-efficiency roadmap
If you get electricity from NSTAR, National Grid or Western Mass
Electric, you already pay for these assessments through a surcharge on
your energy bills. You might as well use the service.

Massachusetts Attitudes About Climate Change – An opinion survey of
Massachusetts residents conducted by MassINC and sponsored by the Barr
Foundation found that 77% of respondents believe that global warming
has “probably been happening” and 59% of all respondents see see it as
being at least partially caused by human pollution. Only 42% of the
state’s residents say global warming will have very serious
consequences for Massachusetts if left unaddressed. The 18 to 29 age
group is more likely to believe global warming is appearing and caused
by humans compared to the 60+ age group. African-American (56%) and
Latino residents (69%) are more likely than white residents (40%) to
believe global warming will be a very serious problem if left
unaddressed. The MassINC report, titled The 80 Percent Challenge:
What Massachusetts must do to meet targets and make headway on climate
challenge.aspx), contains many other findings.

announcements of events, employment opportunities, internships,
programs, lectures, and other activities as well as related articles
or other publications of a non-commercial nature covering the area's
food system - food, nutrition, farming, education, etc. - that take
place or focus on or around Greater Boston (broadly delineated)."
The Boston area is one of the most active nationwide in terms of food
system activities - projects, services, and events connected to food,
farming, nutrition - and often connected to education, public health,
environment, arts, social services and other arenas. Hundreds of
organizations and enterprises cover our area, but what is going on
week-to-week is not always well publicized.
Hence, the new Boston Food System listserv, as the place to let
everyone know about these activities. Specifically:
Use of the BFS list will begin soon, once we get a decent base of
subscribers. Clarification of what is appropriate to announce and
other posting guidelines will be provided as well.
