|12:45 PM - 2:00 PM ||Business in a Climate-Compatible World
Join Us for the Second Seminar in the Spring 2016 Baruch Climate Change Series
This Free program in room 14-280 is Open To The Public, and is sponsored by the Provost's Faculty Research Seminar
Edward Cameron, PhD, Managing Director, Business for Social Responsibility
Cameron is a specialist in climate change and human rights with 20 years
of professional experience working with national governments,
international development agencies, global think tanks and with some of
the world’s most recognized companies. Edward is Managing Director at
BSR, a global non-profit that works with 270 multinational corporations
to achieve a just and sustainable world. He leads BSR’s climate practice
with the twin goals of driving aggressive greenhouse gas emissions
reductions commensurate with holding global mean temperature rises to
less than 2C above pre-industrial levels; and enhancing the adaptive
capacity of business and society in the face of inevitable climate
He also serves as Policy Director for the We Mean Business Coalition, an
unprecedented alliance of seven business-facing networks driving
private sector engagement with global climate change policy. Edward has
previously served with the World Resources Institute and the World Bank
during six years in Washington, DC; has been a Senior Advisor in the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Maldives; and spent nine years
working in Brussels with the European Union. He holds a PhD in Social
Science, Economics and Business and has earned degrees in Ireland,
Belgium and Finland.
poses significant and accelerating material risks for business and
society. Growing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere
lead to global mean temperature rises and associated growth in a range
of hazards including extreme weather events, changes in water patterns,
sea-level rises, and acidification of the oceans. This in turn
exacerbates risks to business and society by threatening natural
resources, undermining ecosystem services, destroying livelihoods and
homes, and damaging vital infrastructure. On the other hand recent
global policy responses to climate change, notably the signing of the
landmark Paris Agreement in December, are creating new market
opportunities worth trillions of dollars for businesses willing to adopt
climate compatible products, services, and operations.
This event will be held in room 14-280. Lunch will be served at 12:15 p.m.
This talk will look at both the risks of climate change and how our
collective response to this risk can catalyze a thriving clean economy.
Edward Cameron will speak about the growing volume of action and
ambition in the private sector to understand risk and build climate
resilience and will explore how the Paris Agreement dramatically changes
the landscape for businesses operating in an increasingly globalized

|8:00 AM - 5:30 PM ||The Arts & Higher Education: Building Creative Partnerships and Assessing Program Impacts Conference
The Baruch College-Rubin Museum of Art Project
The Arts & Higher Education: Building Creative Partnerships And Assessing Program Impacts Conference
April 10th-11th, 2014
Bernard M. Baruch College
The William & Anita Newman Conference Center
151 East 25th Street, Room 750
New York, NY 10010
Free and open to the public
COMPLETE SCHEDULE HERE.
The conference explores the benefits and obstacles of providing more participation with the arts for college students, faculty and their academic communities. Arts and cultural organizations are continually exploring ways to engage the public, in particular, younger audiences who are the next generation of patrons and supporters of the arts. Both communities – higher education and the arts – share a common goal; to enrich and expand student arts engagement, as illustrated by dynamic collaborations between colleges/universities and arts organizations, such as museums and theatre companies. There is a growing awareness that exposure to the arts, particularly for students from lower income families, helps students develop character, leadership skills, an appreciation of cultural competence and diversity, as well as a sense of self, empathy, creativity, ethical values, and social responsibility.
The 2014 Conference brings together professionals from the arts, cultural institutions, and higher education to share ideas and develop strategies for empowering students through innovative programs that engage the arts. The two-day conference will be organized around four themes.
I. Increasing Faculty and Student Engagement and Participation: How can arts and educational institutions collaborate to provide meaningful experiences for faculty and students that change their understanding of themselves and the communities they live in? What are the current barriers, as well as incentives, for faculty to increase the role of the arts in college curricula?
II. Financing and Supporting Collaborative Partnerships: What are the benefits of higher education and arts institutions partnerships? What are the costs, measured in terms of staff commitment and dollars, required of each partner to make the collaboration work? What narratives are effective in attracting external support for these efforts from foundations, government agencies, and corporate and individual donors?
III. Effective Communication Strategies: How can institutional partners promote and share ideas and experiences to increase student engagement with the arts, e.g. through open source websites such as www.AHEAD21.org and smarthistory.khanacademy.org? What are effective communication strategies for changing the cultural and current paradigm for incorporating the arts into students' educational experiences?
IV. Assessing Impact on Academic Communities and Art Institutions: How do we evaluate collaborative programs to assess impact? What metrics do we use to measure outcomes? Is the investment of time, money and creative energy worth the results?

|9:15 PM - 10:00 PM ||BigData and Analytics: Computational Trends and Challenges
Speaker: Jaime Moreno, IBM Research
After a brief introduction about IBM Research, this lecture gives a perspective on the ongoing evolution in computing arising from the trends in Big Data and Analytics, and the expectations regarding future systems for them. From the realization that microelectronic technology is no longer improving performance at historic rates, plus the continuously increasing demand for computing performance arising from Big Data and Analytics, computer systems need to evolve to adapt to the ever increasing requirements. This lecture shows how we are undergoing an evolution towards new forms of computing. Moving data has become as expensive as performing basic computations, leading to the emergence of “data centric computing systems”. The "calculating" computing paradigm in place for the last decades, which replaced the earlier "tabulating" computing paradigm, is now starting to transition into a "cognitive" style of computing. These transitions are ushering an entirely new set of challenges to the design and use of computer systems.
Jaime H. Moreno is Senior Manager, Microprocessor Architecture, at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in New York. His department research activities include advanced systems architecture, systems technology and architecture interactions, and advanced compiler technology, efforts that address the full range of IBM processors and systems. In addition to multiple publications and co-authoring two books, Jaime holds 17 patents in processor architecture, and has been recognized as Master Inventor at IBM Research. Jaime joined IBM in 1992; previously, he was a faculty member at the University of Concepcion, Chile. He received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from UCLA in 1989.
