 Overcoming Academic Perfectionism
Thursday, Sep 10, 2020
2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Online

1-     Do you struggle to share your writing at early stages because it’s not perfect?
2-     Do you find yourself devastated by criticism of your work?
3-     Do you beat yourself up every time the tiniest thing goes wrong?
4-     Is it difficult for you to celebrate other people’s success because it reminds you of your own shortcomings?


If any of these things sound familiar, CONGRATULATIONS! You’re a perfectly normal perfectionist! The only problem is that the nature of the Academy is likely to exacerbate your perfectionist tendencies, as opposed to minimize them. In this webinar, perfectionists will unite to get clear about:

  *   The causes and consequences of excessive perfectionism.
  *   The features of academic life that intensify perfectionism
  *   Strategies to identify when your perfectionism is at work, assess whether it is useful or debilitating, and adjust your standards and behavior accordingly
  *   The secret to finding real satisfaction in every step of the writing process

Artificial Intelligence for Smart City Transportation
Wednesday, September 9, 2020
12 noon – 1 p.m.
Online

We live in an era of real-time gathering of information and its dissemination. The size of the digital universe is estimated to be around 50 Zettabytes today and expected to double every two years. The growth of exploitable data has the potential to trigger disruptive changes in the transportation sector and is having a profound impact in urban planning, intelligent mobility, and safety.

Vehicle loop detectors that have traditionally been deployed at intersections to detect the passage of vehicles have high deployment and maintenance costs; and are not always useful for observing the movements of pedestrians and scooters. The use of other modalities, such as Video, Radar and LIDAR has great potential to improve accuracy and timeliness in the detection of vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, etc.  As part of the I-Street Trapezium project we are collecting this information at 27 intersections in Gainesville using Video Camera, Radar and LIDAR. Additionally, data is being collected from interactions of vehicles with onboard units (that mimic the behavior of future connected vehicles) with Road Side Units. This information is then synthesized to create a real-time city-wide traffic palette that is used to improve traffic safety and operations.
