PechaKucha Night Plzeň #15 - Elektrohala Plzeňského Prazdroje Tito dva architekti vymysleli a uvedli v život v roce 2003 v Tokiu přednáškový formát PechaKucha [pečakuča]. Jejich záměrem bylo vytvořit prostor pro setkávání architektů, designérů, graﬁků, výtvarných umělců, teoretiků, divadelníků, ﬁlmařů a muzikantů na jednom místě v jednom čase v tomto oborovém mixu. Protože měli zkušenost jen s architektonickými přednáškami, které velmi často trvají hodiny, hledali, jak zbytečné rozvleklosti zabránit. A řešení dostalo jméno PechaKucha – japonský výraz pro zvuk konverzace. Každý mluvčí si připraví pro svůj výstup 20 obrázků a každý z nich může komentovat na ploše 20 vteřin; 6 minut a 40 vteřin ho tak dělí od nástupu dalšího přednášejícího. 27.11.2015 www.pechakuchaplzen.cz www.facebook.com/PechaKuchaNightPlzen

PechaKucha Night Plzeň #15 - Elektrohala Plzeňského Prazdroje Lukas Jüliger přerušil studium ilustrátorství v Hamburku, aby se mohl naplno věnovat tvorbě komiksové knihy Vakuum. Podle německého deníku Die Welt je „Vakuum nejlepší debut, který kdy německý kreslíř vydal“. Jüliger netvrdí, že je jeho komiks autobiografický, připouští však, že je v něm obsaženo hodně z jeho duše, a označuje jej za „koláž pocitů“ a „meditací“ o sobě samém. 27.11.2015 www.pechakuchaplzen.cz www.facebook.com/PechaKuchaNightPlzen

PechaKucha Night Plzeň #14 - Centrální výrobna jídel Belgičan Serge Borenstein přijel poprvé do Prahy těsně po sametové revoluci. Zamiloval si čtvrť Karlín, již dokázal díky své developerské společnosti proměnit během relativně krátké doby v místo s dobrou adresou, kde se daří významným firmám, byznysu i vynikajícím gastronomickým podnikům, v místo pro život. 25.08.2015 www.pechakuchaplzen.cz www.facebook.com/PechaKuchaNightPlzen

We’re working on increasingly complex websites. There’s a temptation to match this growth with increasingly complex solutions. But there’s a real value in keeping things simple…or at least starting things simple. If you can build a solid robust foundation, there’s a good chance that your work will be future-friendly. Prepare to have your brain subtly rewired as we look beneath the surface-level implementation details of the web to reveal the semantic structure below. Whether you’re publishing content or building the latest hot app, the principle of progressive enhancement will change the way you think about your work.

Velodyne's Director of Sales & Marketing, Wolfgang Juchmann will be presenting Velodyne's unique real-time, 3D LiDAR sensors popular for Mobile Mapping mounted on terrestrial, maritime and airborne platforms.With 32/64 lasers and detectors spinning at up to 20Hz, point clouds of a 360º environment can measure distance and reflectivities at a rate of 1.3M data points per second. The multiple beam and detector configuration not only enhances the data capturing rate to one of the fastest commercially on the market, but also allows measuring geo-spatial objects from different angles thereby minimizing shadows and dead spots. The calibrated reflectivity data allows for easy detection of retro-reflectors like street-signs, lane-markings and license plates.Wolfgang's presentation will introduce the advantages of Velodyne's sensors paired with real life examples based on customer experiences in the world of mapping, autonomous driving and even for security and surveillance applications.

The Giant Magellan Telescope project is an international collaboration to design, build and operate a 25m telescope for research in astrophysics and cosmology. The GMT primary mirror is comprised of seven 8.4m diameter segments, providing both a collecting area and diffraction-limited image concentration that are an order of magnitude better than those offered by current facilities. The telescope will be located at Las Campanas Observatory in Chile. With its large collecting area and state of the art adaptive optics system the GMT will have a uniquely powerful combination of sensitivity and angular resolution. I will describe how the GMT can advance our understanding of a broad range of astronomy and astrophysics. Key areas of the GMT science program range from studies of planets in orbit around nearby stars to the observations of galaxy formation in the first few hundred million years after the big bang. State of the art instruments will allow us to measure the masses of black holes at the centers of galaxies over a broad range of redshifts and to probe the evolution of galaxy structures – spiral disks, bars, bulges – as the Hubble sequence came into being. The greatest excitement for any new facility of this scale, however, is the potential for new and unexpected discoveries and I will discuss how GMT will open new discovery space.

Agricultural productivity on modern farms is often below 50%. One of the contributing factors to low farm efficiency is lack of data. Planting, irrigation, disease, and harvest problems affecting ultimate crop yield are not detected early enough, while precautionary measure are often taken in the absence of real time crop health data. Accurate georeferenced aerial imagery presents an opportunity to diagnose problems early on, as well as inform decisions to be made in the next planting cycle. Existing manned solutions however are expensive and provide infrequent feedback as a result.

Mathematical methods, in particular those coming from combinatorics and logic, find applications in various areas of computer science. An area where such methods are often used is algorithm and data structure design. However, many important algorithmic problems are hard in the sense of computational complexity and it is unlikely that they can be efficiently solved in full generality. One of the approaches to cope with this is based on restricting the hardness by an appropriate parameterization, e.g., by restricting the structure of input data or the logic complexity of considered problems. The lecture will start with a demonstration how mathematical methods can be used to design an algorithm for a particular problem. The case study presented will be used to introduce concepts from the parameterized complexity and some of the basic results in this area. At the end of the lecture, we will give several general results that were proved using methods from combinatorics and logic. These results known as algorithms metatheorems guarantee the existence of efficient algorithms for a wide range of algorithmic problems.

Jesse Paquette leads the development of new features and pipelines that enhance user experience, particularly in the life sciences domain. Prior to Ayasdi, Jesse was a computational biologist at UCSF. He maintains an impressive collection of scar tissue, perpetuated by weekly overdoses of pickup soccer. With the rise of sports data collection companies like Opta Sports and Prozone, professional soccer is rapidly becoming a data-driven sport. Teams are now presented with an overwhelming challenge – they know these data hold the key to understanding playing styles, team success and optimal player performance, but they lack the tools. Ayasdi was founded in 2008 as an offshoot of the Stanford Math Department. Its software platform, Iris, uses Topological Data Analysis (TDA) to identify patterns of similarity between data points (players) over many dimensions (statistics). Recently, Jesse Paquette assisted The Economist magazine in producing a TDA network showing player similarity across two years of the English Premier League (EPL). In this session, Jesse will explain TDA and how it can be used by professional soccer teams to achieve Moneyball-like results from player data. What's GeekdomSF?
