Colliding Black Holes, Gravitational Waves and the Event Horizon

October 24 at 7 PM at the Johnson Geo Centre, 175 Signal Hill Road

Groundbreaking observations during the last four years have confirmed Einstein’s general relativity and revolutionised astrophysics. Gravitational wave astronomers now hear a black hole merger almost every week. They’ve heard black holes eat neutron stars and neutron stars collide to form new black holes. Radio astronomers have even taken a picture of the event horizon itself. In this talk, Dr. Ivan Booth, Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Memorial University, will discuss these amazing observations and preview what’s still to come. Spoiler: it’s only going to get better!




Health Inequality in Children and Youth and the Wealth of Nations

October 24 at 7 PM, IIC-2001, Bruneau Centre for Research and Innovation

In Canada, there are major differences in the rates of some illnesses and a 10-year gap in life expectancy across socio-economic conditions. Internationally, child and youth health vary depending on economic wealth and inequality.

An upcoming public lecture by Dr. Frank Elgar, an alumnus of Memorial University and a professor at McGill University’s Institute for Health and Social Policy, will take a look at those differences.

Using research on poverty, inequality, bullying and corporal punishment, Dr. Elgar will examine the social and moral implications of health inequality in early-life, the policy choices that shape opportunities to be healthy and potential consequences of inaction.

Admission is free, and all are welcome. Limited free parking is available in Lot 17. A reception will follow.

Materials for Tomorrow, Today

November 18 at 7 PM, IIC-2001, Bruneau Centre for Research and Innovation

Dr. Alan Aspuru-Guzik, Departments of Chemistry and Computer Science, University of Toronto, argues one must go beyond simple computational screening approaches, followed by traditional experimentation for materials discovery.

He’s been working on the design and implementation of ‘materials acceleration platforms’ or MAPs. These MAPs are enabled by a confluence of three disparate fields – artificial intelligence (AI), high-throughput quantum chemistry and robotics. The integration of prediction, synthesis and characterisation in an AI-driven closed-loop approach promises the acceleration of materials discovery by a factor of 10, or even 100.

Dr. Aspuru-Guzik will describe his efforts around this topic under the Mission Innovation umbrella platform.

Admission is free and all are welcome. Limited free parking is available in Lot 17. A reception will follow.
