Bioinspired Hybrid Locomotion For Miniature Robotics
Monday, 20 February
6:30 PM
Harvard Microrobotics Lab, 60 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA 02140

Dr. Mirko Kovac, Katie Hoffman, Kevin Ma
Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory,

Dr. Mirko Kovac: Nature offers an almost limitless quantity of design solutions that allow small animals to move in natural terrains. Although animals share only a subset of their design requirements with robots, several of the design principles employed by animals can be used in robotics as well to allow them to improve their locomotion capabilities. In this talk, Dr. Kovac will give an overview of his PhD work at the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems at EPFL on jumping and gliding miniature robots. Further, I will introduce our work at the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory where we work towards the implementation of butterfly inspired gliding and soaring flight to our robotic flapping wing microrobots.

Katie Hoffman (Centipede Millirobot): Due to their ability to navigate a variety of terrains at high speeds, arthropods have been used as inspiration for legged millirobots. Many robots at this scale are modeled after cockroaches, with six legs and rigid bodies; however, the diversity of body morphologies found in nature leaves unanswered questions about the optimal number of legs for robustness and speed and how passive body flexibility can enhance locomotion on both flat and rough terrain. A segmented, many-legged centipede-inspired millirobot with a compliant body provides the perfect platform to answer these questions. Katie Hoffman will present the design, modeling, fabrication, and experimental results of a 20-legged centipede-inspired millirobot being used to understand myriapod locomotion.
Kevin Ma: Recent advances in the understanding of biological flight have inspired roboticists to create flapping-wing vehicles on the scale of insects. A coordinated effort toward achieving this goal is found in the collaborative Robobees project, being conducted at Harvard University. The project covers all aspects of the system, from the flight apparatus and power systems to the electronic nervous system for sensing and decision-making. The goal of the project is to create a coordinated swarm of small, insect-scale robots, for applications in distributed sensing, search and rescue operations, and assisted agriculture (robotic pollination). In this talk, Kevin will cover some of the challenges in building small flying devices and highlight the innovations that have been made to enable the mechanical design and fabrication of these tiny robots.

Dr. Mirko Kovac is Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory as part of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University in Cambridge, USA. He obtained his PhD with the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems under the supervision of Prof. Dario Floreano at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL). He received his M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) in 2005 with his Master Thesis carried out at University of California in Berkeley, USA. During his studies he was research associate with RIETER Automotive Switzerland, the WARTSILA Diesel Technology Division in Switzerland, and CISERV in Singapore. He has presented his work at several international conferences and in journals and has supervised more than 25 B.A./M.S. level student projects, one of which received the 2008 Foundation Annaheim prize for the best student project. In 2009 he won the JTCF Novel Technology best paper award at the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS’2009) and the 2009 runner up best poster award at the research day at EPFL. His research interest is the conception and design of novel locomotion and control methods for mobile robots and their analogy in biological systems. Webpage:

Katie Hoffman is a Ph.D. candidate in the Microrobotics Lab at the Harvard University School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. She obtained her undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from Bucknell University in 2008 and her masters degree in engineering sciences from Harvard University in 2010. Her current research interests include mechanical design, fabrication, and modeling of biologically-inspired ambulatory millirobots.
Kevin Ma is a graduate student researcher in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University. He works on the aeromechanical design of the robotic bee, as a member of the NSF-funded Robobees project and the Harvard Microrobotics Lab. Prior to Harvard, he obtained his B.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 2010. His research interests include mechanical design, microfabrication, and bio-inspired robotic locomotion.
Meeting will be held at Harvard Microrobotics Lab, 60 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA 02140 (Please note the irregular date and venue)

After the meeting, there will be a no-host dinner with the speakers at the Cambridge Commons restaurant, 1667 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138,

The Promises of Web-based Social Experiments
Tuesday, February 21
12:30 pm
Berkman Center, 23 Everett Street, second floor
RSVP required for those attending in person at
This event will be webcast live at 12:30 pm ET at and archived on our site shortly after.

Jerome Hergueux, Berkman Center Fellow
The advent of the internet provides social scientists with a fantastic tool for conducting behavioral experiments online at a very large-scale and at an affordable cost. It is surprising, however, how little research has leveraged the affordances of the internet to set up such social experiments so far.

In this talk, Jerome Hergueux will introduce the audience to one of the first online platforms specifically designed for conducting interactive social experiments over the internet to date. He will present the preliminary results of a randomized experiment that compares behavioral measures of social preferences obtained both in a traditional University laboratory and online, with a focus on engaging the audience in a reflection about the specificities, limitations and promises of online experimental economics as a tool for social science research.

About Jerome
Jerome is a PhD candidate in Economics at Sciences Po Paris and the University of Strasbourg. He is a Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, where he works with Professor Yochai Benkler to develop new interactive survey methods to uncover the foundations and dynamics of interactions and behavior in online social spaces.
Jerome is mainly interested in applying economics' analytical tools to the understanding of the evolution of culture, broadly defined as any set of norms of cooperation shared by a group of individuals trying to overcome particular collective action issues (be it in online or offline settings). He then tries to assess the relevance of those norms for determining a wide range of economic outcomes at the community level.

Jerome originates from the French region of Alsace, near the German border. He holds an MA in Finance from the University of Strasbourg and a Master in International Relations and International Economics from Sciences Po Paris. Jerome speaks French, English and Arabic, and is heavily interested in the Middle East's politics and culture.


Real-time Estimation of Distributed Parameters Systems: Application to Traffic Monitoring with Smartphones
Tuesday, February 21, 2012
4:00 PM (reception following)
MIT, Building 32-123, 32 Vassar Street, Cambridge

Alexandre Bayen, UC Berkeley
Abstract: The coupling of the physical world with information technology promises to help meet increasing demands for efficient, sustainable, and secure management of our built infrastructure and natural environment. A mathematical abstraction of the physical environment can be achieved in the form of distributed parameters systems, described by partial differential equations. Yet, initial and boundary conditions, and other model parameters necessary for complete characterization of these models are often unknown, driving the need for distributed sensing of the physical environment. Because of the nonlinearities and distributed nature inherent to these physical processes, efficient estimation algorithms to reconcile modeling and measurement errors in real-time remains an open challenge for many applications.

This work investigates the problem of real-time estimation of distributed parameters systems in the context of monitoring traffic, river flows and earthquakes. The recent explosion of smartphones with Internet connectivity, GPS and magnetometers is rapidly increasing sensing capabilities for numerous infrastructure systems. The talk will present theoretical results, algorithms and implementations designed to integrate mobile measurements obtained from smartphones into distributed parameter models of infrastructure systems. The models considered include Hamilton-Jacobi equations, first order conservation laws and systems of conservation laws. A new convex formulation of data assimilation and data reconciliation problems will be derived and demonstrated for some of these models. Other techniques developed will be briefly presented as well, relying on ensemble Kalman filtering.

The talk will focus mainly on a traffic monitoring system launched jointly by UC Berkeley and Nokia, called Mobile Millennium, which is operational in Northern California and streams more than 60 million data points a day into traffic models. The talk will also present two more recent applications of this research: the floating sensor network, for real-time riverflow reconstruction, and the iShake system, for smartphone-based real-time earthquake monitoring.

Biography: Alexandre Bayen received the Engineering Degree in applied mathematics from the Ecole Polytechnique, France, in July 1998, the M.S. degree in aeronautics and astronautics from Stanford University in June 1999, and the Ph.D. in aeronautics and astronautics from Stanford University in December 2003. He was a Visiting Researcher at NASA Ames Research Center from 2000 to 2003. Between January 2004 and December 2004, he worked as the Research Director of the Autonomous Navigation Laboratory at the Laboratoire de Recherches Balistiques et Aerodynamiques, (Ministere de la Defense, Vernon, France), where he holds the rank of Major. He has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley since January 2005, and an Associate Professor since 2010. He is the recipient of the Ballhaus Award from Stanford University, 2004, of the CAREER award from the National Science Foundation, 2009 and he is a NASA Top 10 Innovators on Water Sustainability, 2010. He is the recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from the White House, 2010. His projects Mobile Century and Mobile Millennium received the 2008 Best of ITS Award for ‘Best Innovative Practice’, at the ITS World Congress and a TRANNY Award from the California Transportation Foundation, 2009.

Tuesday, February 21, 2012
MIT, Building E14, Third-Floor Atrium, 75 Amherst Street, Cambridge
MIT Media Lab Conversations Series
The new series Media Lab Conversations will host visionaries who work at the intersection of technology, art, and enterprise.

Lawrence Lessig is the director of the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics at Harvard University, and a professor of law at Harvard Law School.

Prior to returning to Harvard, Lessig was a professor of law at Stanford Law School (where he was founder of Stanford's Center for Internet and Society), Harvard Law School (1997-2000), and the University of Chicago Law School. Lessig clerked for Judge Richard Posner on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and Justice Antonin Scalia on the United States Supreme Court.

For much of his academic career, Lessig has focused on law and technology, especially as it affects copyright. He is the author of five books on the subject, and has served as lead counsel in a number of important cases marking the boundaries of copyright law in a digital age. His current academic work addresses the question of "institutional corruption"???roughly, influences within an economy of influence that weaken the effectiveness of an institution, or weaken public trust. His current work at the EJ Safra Lab oversees a five-year research project addressing institutional corruption in a number of institutional contexts.

Lessig has won numerous awards, including the Free Software Foundation's Freedom Award, and was named one of Scientific American's Top 50 Visionaries. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society.

Catalysis with nanocrystals

MIT, Building 66-110, 25 Ames Street, Cambridge

Speaker: Ming Lee Tang, UC Berkeley & Lawrence Berkeley National Lab
Chemical Engineering Department Seminar Series
See speakers, talk titles, and dates at

Heterogeneous catalysts form the bedrock of industrial processes, yet little is understood in terms of structure-activity relationships. This is complicated by the fact that heterogeneous catalysts are not structurally identical, and that the catalysts change over the course of the reaction. Comprehensive characterization is necessary in order to determine the catalytic sites and hence mechanisms. In the first part of the talk, I present an amorphous molybdenum sulfide catalyst active for hydrogen evolution, photo-sensitized by semiconductor nanorods to produce solar fuel. The uniformity and large surface area of these molybdenum sulfide coated cadmium chaldogenide nanocrystals facilitate the structural and electronic characterization of the catalytically active species. In the second part of the talk, hydrogen uptake is monitored at the single particle level using darkfield spectroscopy. This non-invasive, in situ technique reveals that the hydrogen storage trajectories of plasmonic particles are shape dependent. Single particle studies of catalytic events allow measurements that would otherwise be obscured by ensemble averaging.

Speaker: Dr. Jennifer A. Lewis
Abstract: The ability to pattern functional materials in planar and three-dimensional forms is of critical importance for several emerging applications, including energy harvesting, self-healing materials, and tissue engineering scaffolds. Direct-write assembly enables one to rapidly design and fabricate materials in arbitrary shapes without the need for expensive tooling, dies, or lithographic masks. Recent advances in microscale printing will be highlighted, including omnidirectional printing of flexible microelectrodes, pen-on-paper electronics, conformal printing of 3D electrically small antennas, and printed origami of lightweight metallic and ceramic structures. Ongoing efforts to scale up our filamentary printing approach to enable manufacturing of large 3D structures will also be highlighted.

Biographical Sketch: Dr. Jennifer A. Lewis earned a Sc.D. in ceramic science from MIT in 1991. She joined the faculty of the materials science and engineering department at UIUC in 1990, where she is currently appointed as the Hans Thurnauer Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and serves as the Director of the Frederick Seitz Materials Research Laboratory.

NOTE Rema Hanna will discuss her recent research, "Targeting the Poor: Evidence from a Field Experiment in Indonesia," co-authored with Vivi Alatas, Abhijit Banerjee, Julia Tobias, and Ben Olken. This research systematically tests the effectiveness of targeting strategy for anti-poverty cash transfer program in Indonesia, namely, proxy-means test, using data on assets to predicts income; community targeting, using villagers own rank; and hybrid method. In particular, it examines the ability of each approach in identifying the poor and providing of satisfaction with transfer recipient list. Not only evaluating if the elite capture reduces community informational advantage, the research also observes if community has widely shared objective function beyond per-capita income. Understanding cost and benefit of targeting strategy is of practical importance for public policy makers, poverty-alleviation specialist, and for anyone interested in anti-poverty measures, especially in developing countries with, typically, substantial informal sector and lack of reliable earning records.

Five members of the Beehive, a design cooperative based in Machias, Maine, will be in residence in the Art Education Department from February 21-28. They will be visiting classes and studios, installing an exhibition in the Arnheim Gallery, and giving two public presentations.

The Beehive's mission is to create collaborative, anti-copyright images that can be used as alternative educational and organizing tools. Best known for their posters, the bees collaborate to create visual narratives that break down and deconstruct complex and overwhelming political/social issues.

Schedule of Beehive Events at MassArt:
February 27 - March 14 Arnheim exhibition
Monday, Feb. 27, 7:00 - 8:30pm opening

Wednesday, February 22, 5:15-7:00 pm, Kennedy 406, MassArt, Boston
Presentation on running a collaborative of artists and activists

Monday, February 27, 5:00-7:00 pm, Tower Auditorium, MassArt, Boston
Presentation on the True Cost of Coal Banner

The Beehive Collective releases their innovative graphic, "The True Cost of Coal: a visual exploration of Mountaintop Removal coal mining and Resistance"
Two years in the making, "The True Cost of Coal" is an elaborate narrative illustration that explores the complex story of mountaintop removal coal mining and the broader impacts of coal in Appalachia and beyond. The image is the culmination of an intensive and collaborative research process, as the Beehive methodology centers on first hand story-sharing. To create the poster, the Beehive interviewed hundreds of community members throughout the Appalachia region. "We feel it?s
extremely important to gather our information from as close to the source as possible," a Beehive illustrator says.

The Bees craft visual metaphors and weave them together in a patchwork "quilt" of personal stories. In their interactive picture-lectures, the Bees lead audiences through an engaging, larger-than-life banner version of the graphic, interweaving anecdotes, statistics, and history. The experience prompts discussion and understanding of contemporary struggles about energy and coal, while honoring the deep legacy of the Appalachian experience. Upon seeing the graphic, Tanya Turner of Pineville, KY said, "This image is changing Appalachia. Appalachians are taking back Appalachia and this image is a tool for that change."

"Drones: the New Frontier of Warfare and Spying"
Wednesday, February 29, 2012
7:00pm until 10:00pm
Friends Meeting, 5 Longfellow Park, Cambridge

U.S. use of drones for warfare and spying has become routine. The use of drones increased dramatically under the Obama administration. Pentagon funding for drones is scheduled to increase by up to 60 percent while other programs are being cut. Drones have been used for targeted killings in Pakistan,. Afghanistan and Yemen. One in three U.S. warplanes are now drone piloted. Drones have also been used for surveillance in the U.S.

Learn more about this new instrument of war and plan together about how we can respond.

It is with a sense of gratitude and deep joy that we announce the Art and Soul program at Wellesley College will be hosting three of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers this spring. The Grandmothers will give a talk at Houghton Chapel on Thursday, April nineteenth at seven p.m. The theme of their talk will be Planting Seeds for Seven Generations: Making Change. The Grandmothers will share their cultural treasures and life experience, in support of our community’s exploration of an ethics of wholeness, which can bring about a sustainable future for the generations to come.

Originating from all four corners of the world, these 13 wise women elders and medicine women first came together in 2004 at a peace gathering. They represent a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Earth, all her inhabitants and the next seven generations. We are honored to host, as representatives of this Grandmothers’ Council, Grandmothers Rita and Beatrice Long- Visitor Holy Dance of the Lakota tribe and Grandmother Mona Polacca of the Hopi/ Havasupai/Tewa tribe. This event is open to all, as an offering to our circles of community. For more information about this event, contact Ji Hyang at 781.283.2793




Cambridge Residents: Free Home Thermal Images

Have you ever wanted to learn where your home is leaking heat by having an energy auditor come to your home with a thermal camera? With that info you then know where to fix your home so it's more comfortable and less expensive to heat. However, at $200 or so, the cost of such a thermal scan is a big chunk of change.

HEET Cambridge has now partnered with Sagewell, Inc. to offer Cambridge residents free thermal scans.

Sagewell collects the thermal images by driving through Cambridge in a hybrid vehicle equipped with thermal cameras. They will scan every building in Cambridge (as long as it's not blocked by trees or buildings or on a private way). Building owners can view thermal images of their property and an analysis online. The information is password protected so that only the building owner can see the results.

Homeowners, condo-owners and landlords can access the thermal images and an accompanying analysis free of charge. Commercial building owners and owners of more than one building will be able to view their images and analysis for a small fee.

The scans will be analyzed in the order they are requested.

Go to Type in your address at the bottom where it says "Find your home or building" and press return. Then click on "Here" to request the report.

That's it. When the scans are done in a few weeks, your building will be one of the first to be analyzed. The accompanying report will help you understand why your living room has always been cold and what to do about it.

With knowledge, comes power (or in this case saved power and money, not to mention comfort).


Cambridge Energy Alliance is kicking off a brand new pilot project to make Cambridge more energy efficient and install more renewable energy one neighborhood at a time. Live Better Porter Square will simultaneously engage every sector in Porter Square; bringing together churches, schools, community gardeners, business leaders,
students and more!

The goals of this four month campaign are to promote community involvement, support the local economy, and highlight Porter Square as a model for the rest of the city.

Neighborhood Liaison volunteers will assist with planning and implementing outreach efforts, as well as community events. We are looking for individuals with an interest in community organizing, outreach, and event planning.

If you are interested in volunteering please sign up to attend the information and interview session on February 14th.

We’ll be offering an interactive and fun half-day training session for Neighborhood Liaison volunteers on March 3rd.

Massachusetts Attitudes About Climate Change – An opinion survey of Massachusetts residents conducted by MassINC and sponsored by the Barr Foundation found that 77% of respondents believe that global warming has “probably been happening” and 59% of all respondents see see it as being at least partially caused by human pollution. Only 42% of the state’s residents say global warming will have very serious consequences for Massachusetts if left unaddressed. The 18 to 29 age group is more likely to believe global warming is appearing and caused by humans compared to the 60+ age group. African-American (56%) and Latino residents (69%) are more likely than white residents (40%) to believe global warming will be a very serious problem if left unaddressed. The MassINC report, titled The 80 Percent Challenge: What Massachusetts must do to meet targets and make headway on climate change (, contains many other findings.

Boston Food System

"The Boston Food System [listserv] provides a forum to post announcements of events, employment opportunities, internships, programs, lectures, and other activities as well as related articles or other publications of a non-commercial nature covering the area's food system - food, nutrition, farming, education, etc. - that take place or focus on or around Greater Boston (broadly delineated)."

The Boston area is one of the most active nationwide in terms of food system activities - projects, services, and events connected to food, farming, nutrition - and often connected to education, public health, environment, arts, social services and other arenas. Hundreds of organizations and enterprises cover our area, but what is going on week-to-week is not always well publicized.

Hence, the new Boston Food System listserv, as the place to let everyone know about these activities. Specifically:
Use of the BFS list will begin soon, once we get a decent base of subscribers. Clarification of what is appropriate to announce and other posting guidelines will be provided as well.

It's easy to subscribe right now at
