Multimodal Transportation Operations: Evaluation Methods and Performance Measures

Workshop | May 23 – June 8, 2017 every Tuesday & Thursday | 10 a.m.-12 p.m. |  Online

 Michael Mauch, Institute of Transportation Studies; Bill Cisco, PTV Group

 Technology Transfer Program

This new online training course provides the fundamentals required to understand, perform, and interpret the results from multimodal operational analysis and performance evaluations. Several of the most commonly used evaluation and analysis methods are presented with real-world examples. The course focuses on how to develop an appropriate set of performance measures to reliably compute the gains...   More >

 This course is intended for transportation planners, transportation engineers and technicians at local, regional, and state agencies, as well as transportation planning consultants. Both new and experienced planners and engineers will benefit from this co

Likelihood Based Evaluation for Scanpath Models in Scene Viewing

Seminar | May 30 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall

 Heiko Schütt, University of Tübingen

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

When observers view natural scenes their eye movements show elaborate statistical patterns beyond the fixation density over an image. An important approach to understand these patterns --- and thus ultimately to understand how humans choose where to look at --- is to build models which generate full scanpaths in natural scenes, i.e. a sequence of fixation locations. There are a multitude of...   More >

Neural circuits for goal-directed sensorimotor transformation

Seminar | May 30 | 2-3:30 p.m. | 125 Li Ka Shing Center

 Carl Petersen, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL)

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

A key function of the brain is to interpret incoming sensory information in the context of learned associations in order to guide adaptive behavior. However, the precise neuronal circuits and causal mechanisms underlying goal-directed sensorimotor transformations remain to be clearly defined for the mammalian brain. Technological advances in mouse genetics to define cell-types, in optogenetics to...   More >

 ORIAS (Office of Resources for International and Area Studies)

“The story of world history, if it is to be balanced and accurate, will inevitably consider the natural environment and the myriad ways in which it has both affected and been affected by human activities…Economics, trade, and world politics are regulated, whether humans wish it or not, and whether they are conscious of it, by the availability, location, and finite nature of what, in the language...   More >
