主持人和新书介绍

Hina Jamelle

Hina Jamelle teaches final year Graduate Option Studios and directs the Graduate Program’s Urban Housing Studios at the University of Pennsylvania Weitzman School of Design. She has held the Visiting Schaffer Practice Professorship at the University of Michigan. Jamelle is the co-director of the New York and Shanghai-based architectural firm Contemporary Architecture Practice and has co-edited issues of Architectural Design AD titled IMPACT (2020) as well as Elegance (2007). Hina Jamelle’s book UNDER PRESSURE on Urban Housing was published in 2021. Founded in 1999, Contemporary Architecture Practice [CAP] is known for futuristic designs using digital techniques and the latest technologies for the design and manufacturing of architecture. Projects include commissions by The Museum of Modern Art [New York]; Reebok Shanghai, Lijia Smart Park, Chongqing, Wenjin Hotels, Beijing, NJCTTQ Pharmaceuticals, Nanjing, AMEC Technologies, Nanchang [China]; Samsung, Seoul [South Korea]; and IWI Orthodontics Clinic, Tokyo [Japan]. Contemporary Architecture Practice’s projects have been exhibited extensively at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the London, Beijing, and Shanghai Biennales; and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, among others. They also have been featured in more than 250 major publications around the world. Co-Directors Rahim and Jamelle have won the Architectural Record Design Vanguard Award and were featured in Phaidon’s 10x10x2 as one of the world’s top 100 emerging architects. Their project, IWI Orthodontics in Tokyo, Japan was featured in Phaidon’s ROOM 100 as one of the most creative interior design projects of the century. In 2015 Jamelle was recognized as 50 Under 50 Innovators of the 21st Century by a distinguished jury.

UNDER PRESSURE is about instigation and design in urban housing. Urban housing is a bellwether for economic, social, and political change. It varies widely in quality, typology, and audience and lies between the formal systems of urban infrastructure and the informal systems of daily life. Housing’s complexity offers unique and exciting opportunities to architects. Its entwinement with private equity and public agencies presents important challenges amplified by urbanization. This book gathers and contextualizes relevant conversations in urban housing unfolding today across architecture through four topics: Learning from History, Changing Domesticities, Housing Finance and Policy, and Design and Material Innovation. The result is a multi-disciplinary amalgam of research and design intelligence from thought leaders in the fields of architecture, real estate, economics, policy, material design, and finance.

3月 22 - 舌尖上的未来

活动介绍

Penn Vet School Faculty members will discuss challenges and opportunities surrounding global food security for now and in the future. How do we balance agricultural productivity, efficiency, and sustainability? How does this look different in different geographic contexts? Southeast Asia, and in particular, China’s effort to ensure food security for its people continue to have global impact on the supply, demand, and prices of agricultural commodities critical to producing food for people. Recent unexpected perturbations from infectious diseases in both pigs and humans highlight the complexity and fragility of our global food supply. However, in the decades to come the focus on global food security will likely shift to the African continent where population growth will be most dramatic, impact of anthropogenic climate change on agriculture promises to be most severe, and farming practices are still largely based on small holder models. This panel will examine challenges and trade-offs in our interconnected global food system and speculate about opportunities for increased sustainability and equity as we strive to achieve global food security.

3月 18 - 建设可持续环保型数据中心及技术探讨

活动介绍

Sharing datacenter infrastructure improves energy efficiency, but whether strategic users participate in consolidated systems depends on management policies. Users who dislike allocations or perform poorly may deploy private, less-efficient systems. We address these challenges by combining insight in system architecture with methods in game theory and statistical learning. We illustrate this perspective for several fundamental challenges in datacenters such as stable power delivery, fair resource allocation, and performance analysis. Finally, we discuss future directions in environmentally sustainable computing.

3月 10 - 引领未来的沃顿商学院游戏互动教学

活动介绍

Wharton Interactive is on a mission to radically transform and democratize education with the most innovative educational games on the planet.

Come and hear from cofounders Professor Ethan Mollick and executive director Sarah Toms about Alternate Reality Courses (ARCs), entire courses delivered in a highly engaging game. Tens of thousands globally have already completed a Wharton ARC, including students in higher-ed and those already in the business world.

Traditional education doesn’t tackle the complexity of real life or provide ample opportunity to practice in-class lessons in the real world. But in the right kind of game—an ARC game—learners get to play the starring role in their educational journey. Immersed in a realistic narrative where non-player characters pose challenges, players are guided through making complex decisions. ARCs provide individualized analytical feedback to the learner every step of the way on how well they are performing. Mollick & Toms have also built an ecosystem where learners and educators can easily gain access to Wharton Interactive’s advanced experiential learning catalog.

Wharton Interactive is experiencing explosive growth because their ARCs deliver a giant leap forward in next gen learning.

12月 16 - 未来办公模式—人力资源探讨及抉择

活动介绍

The COVID-19 pandemic forced an unprecedented experiment that reshaped white-collar work and turned remote work into a kind of “new normal.” Now comes the hard part.

Many employees want to continue that normal and keep working remotely, and most at least want the ability to work occasionally from home. But for employers, the benefits of employees working from home or hybrid approaches are not so obvious. What should both groups do?

In a prescient new book, The Future of the Office: Work from Home, Remote Work, and the Hard Choices We All Face, Wharton professor Peter Cappelli lays out the facts in an effort to provide everyone involved with a vision of their futures. Cappelli unveils the surprising tradeoffs both employers and employees may have to accept to get what they want.

Cappelli illustrates the challenges we face in drawing lessons from the pandemic and deciding what to do moving forward. Do we allow some workers to be permanently remote? Do we let others choose when to work from home? Do we get rid of their offices? What else has to change, depending on the approach we choose?

His research reveals there is no consensus among business leaders. Even the most high-profile and forward-thinking companies are taking divergent approaches:

Facebook, Twitter, and other tech companies say many employees can work remotely on a permanent basis.

Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, and others say it is important for everyone to come back to the office.

Ford is redoing its office space so that most employees can work from home at least part of the time, and GM is planning to let local managers work out arrangements on an ad-hoc basis.

As Cappelli examines, earlier research on other types of remote work, including telecommuting, offers some guidance as to what to expect when some people will be in the office and others work at home, and also what happened when employers tried to take back offices. Neither worked as expected.

In a call to action for both employers and employees, Cappelli explores how we should think about the choices going forward as well as who wins and who loses. As he implores, we have to choose soon.

10月 22 - Bringing Up the Boss: Practical Lessons for New Managers

关于本活动

A new start-up comes on the scene filled with a team of talented people. The start-up grows, the team expands, and those early joiners all of a sudden are responsible for leading a team. Just a few years prior, these folks were barely able to figure out their own roles in their crazy, ever-changing company. Now, as managers, they are expected — often without any direction or role models — to know how to develop, coach, structure projects, review, and set expectations for a whole bunch of new, incredible people.
First-timers want to quickly learn what it takes to be a successful manager — like they learned how to code, how to design, how to sell — and put those learnings into practice. But what does it mean to manage, and how do you teach someone to be a good manager? Enter Rachel Pacheco, an expert at helping start-ups solve their management and culture challenges. Pacheco, a former chief people officer and founding team executive at multiple start-ups, conducts research on management and works with CEOs and their managers to build the skills necessary to navigate a rapidly scaling organization.

During this virtual event, Pacheco will share these skills, along with cutting-edge research, data, anecdotes, how-to exercises, and more, to help overwhelmed employees become expert managers followed by Q&A from the audience.

Complimentary Ebook giveaway will be available to the first three who ask questions during Q&A.

9月 29 - The Future of Biometric Tech and Permission: Is It Possible

关于本次活动

Using various forms of artificial intelligence, companies are beginning to profile their customers through signals in their bodies. Facial profiling and voice profiling are two up-and-coming examples of such biometric technologies.

These head-turning developments sound exciting when some physicians and health care firms argue, for example, that that the sounds of a person’s voice may betray diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. But the technologies are also very worrisome because as a society we engage a slippery slope when we start allowing facial reactions and voice sounds to personalize ads and offers based on profit motives. It could all seem like a small price to pay until you project out the use of this tech into the near-future: An apparel store clerk uses an analysis of your face or voice to determine the likelihood of whether you can be upsold on certain clothing. You call a fancy restaurant for a reservation, but its voice analysis system concludes that you don’t meet its definition of an acceptable diner and are refused. A school denies a student enrollment in a special course after facial analysis determines that the student was insincere about their interest.

Some urge that companies that want to use biometrics to profile their audiences should by law have to get explicit (“opt in”) permission. In the U.S. today, only a few states have biometric privacy laws that require a company to obtain explicit consent from users. The European Union demands opt-in consent, and it’s likely more states ultimately will adopt comparable laws.

But is “opt in” a good enough threshold when it comes to corporate use of biometric technologies for marketing purposes?  An evolving point of view in law journals (represented by Woodrow Hartzog) answers no when it comes to facial profiling. In my book The Voice Catchers, I argue “no” with regard to voice profiling. In this meeting, we will describe the technologies, present various ethical viewpoints and legal contexts, and open it up to the Zoom group for questions and opinions.
