Patient Experience Hackathon at Yale

Lux et Veritas Logo
Friday, March 27th, 2015 at 6am3am Sunday, March 29th

Location: Yale University (see schedule for details)


The Spring 2015 Patient Experience Hackathon: Improving Recovery and Reducing Readmissions will be held at Yale University from March 27-29. Participants will be challenged to develop tools and strategies to improve the patient experience and reduce hospital readmissions. In addition, there will be a Data Marathon Track in which teams will build digital tools and analytics that leverage data and expertise on readmission from the Yale Center for Outcomes Research. Applications are open to the public.

This gathering of forward thinking patients, providers, payers, engineers, data scientists, and entrepreneurs will serve as a foundation for disruptive ideas that can positively shape the patient experience and reduce readmission rates for the future.

This event is led jointly by the Yale Center for Biomedical and Interventional Technology (CBIT), the Yale Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE), the University of Connecticut and Hacking Medicine MIT.

Location: Bar in the Westin, 1900 5th Ave, Seattle, Washington, 98101


YSEA President and staunch New Englander James Lockman ’89 invites you to attend an informal gathering to enjoy beverages & hors d’oeurvres and to discuss the important and timely topics:


“Human Powered Standing Vibrations in Concrete and Steel Structures”
“Practical Applications of PV=nRT in Professional Sports”


Feel free to bring guests to help convince Mr. Lockman that his thinking on the matter may be flawed, and that a Seattle point of view may be preferable to the one he maintains at the present time. This promises to be a fun night of socializing and team spirit!

2014 Nyquist Lecture in Electrical Engineering

Boston Dynamics Alpha Dog


“Dynamic Rough Terrain Robots”


Dr. Marc Raibert
Father of Walking Robots
Founder of Boston Dynamics, Just acquired by Google

Reception to follow the lecture.


Abstract: Dynamic robots with advanced control systems and high-performance mechanical designs are leaving the laboratory and entering the world. They can operate in rough terrain, where existing wheeled and tracked vehicles cannot go. Examples of such robots are AlphaDog, the follow-on to BigDog, a fast running quadruped called Cheetah, and Atlas, an anthropomorphic robot designed to explore real-world tasks. These robots move dynamically, balance as they go and rely on sensing and computation for their behavior. In this talk Raibert will give a status report on recent developments.


Bio: Marc Raibert is a Founder of Boston Dynamics, a company that develops some of the world’s most advanced dynamic robots. Inspired by the movements of animals, Raibert’s robots are capable of running, climbing, jumping, and even gymnastic maneuvers—advances that led Google to acquire the company last year.


Raibert is internationally recognized for his work on dynamically moving systems, including development of the first self-balancing hopping robots. In addition to Atlas, a highly mobile humanoid robot developed for the DARPA Robotics Challenge, robots he’s created at Boston Dynamics include BigDog, a four-legged robot that can run, climb, and carry heavy loads; Cheetah, a four-legged robot that holds land speed record for legged robots; and Sand Flea, a robot that drives like an RC car on flat terrain but can jump 30 feet into the air over obstacles. Before founding Boston Dynamics, Raibert founded and directed the Leg Laboratory. Under Raibert’s leadership—first as associate professor of computer science and robotics institute at Carnegie Mellon University then as professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology—the Leg Lab helped establish the scientific basis for highly dynamic legged robots through the creation of one-legged hoppers, biped runners, a quadruped, and two kangaroo-like robots. Raibert is a fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence and a member of the National Academy of Engineering.

Yale Day of Service

Yale Day of Service LogoFrom the Yale Day of Service website:


“Launched in 2009, the global Yale Day of Service is one of a number of service opportunities for Yale alumni to lead by sharing their time and talents to make a difference.


Many alumni give back by working in the non-profit sector, sitting on boards of foundations and organizations, serving at the highest levels of government, becoming elected officials, volunteering for Yale, and sharing time, experience and energy with volunteer community projects. And the Yale Day of Service is a chance for alumni around the world to come together on one day to celebrate this tradition of service. On the Yale Day of Service, alumni and their families and friends work side by side to make communities better because Yale alumni live there. Many Yale Day of Service projects are part of ongoing service efforts by local Yale Clubs or other Yale alumni organizations, a good number of which have grown out of a first Yale Day of Service effort. The Yale Day of Service is a wonderful way for members of the Yale community to meet and reconnect with alumni who share this commitment to giving back. And for many alumni, the program provides the opportunity to share this value with their children (and grandchildren) through example – and fun! – as they work together on projects where they live.”
