Info Session: Workday: Clouds, Sailing and What ???

Information Session: External Relations Group | April 23 | 4-6 p.m. | Soda Hall, Wozniak Lounge/430/438


Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)


A cloud atlas is a pictorial key (or atlas) to the nomenclature of clouds and was used in the recent past to understand the vagaries of the weather. A good knowledge of the cloud atlas often made the difference between life and death especially at sea. for example one cloud atlas defines an ERP cloud as "fluffy and white and nice on the outside with well defined boundaries while on the inside its turbulent, electric and highly charged with many complex manifolds that can cause the head to hurt. When you see one of these clouds you should immediately jettison your cargo, don your life jacket and to set as much sail as you can and make for the nearest port" [1]. This talk will explain what one of these clouds looks like using the ERP cloud created by Workday as an example and give you the confidence to deal with its implications both at sea and on land.
