UTES Games Night

Hosted by the University of Toronto eSports
How has caste developed in Pakistan? Why does caste still matter? A tool used to reinforce power, abuse, and property, it is often a taboo topic; yet the stories of how it permeates into the everyday lives of Pakistanis are far from few. The public silencing on it contrasts with the insidious obsession about caste in private dealings. We are happy to be hosting our first discussion forum of the year on caste and caste systems. It will be an informal conversation where we will gather together to share our thoughts on caste, and work to unpack how the caste system is prevalent and operates in Pakistan. We hope this forum allows you to understand the importance of our decision to partner with the International Dalit Solidarity Network (IDSN) this year. We also hope this will be an event to critically evaluate the ways in which we are complicit in caste-based discrimination and how we can work towards eradicating it in our communities. Raising awareness is a great start and we hope you all will join us! We'll be meeting on November 3rd from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Centre for International Experience, Room 102. The event is ticketed on a "Donate What You Can" principle, with 100% of the proceeds going to IDSN. Refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there! --------------------------------------------------------------------- IDSN is a network of international human rights groups, development agencies, national Dalit solidarity networks, and national platforms in caste-affected countries. It works to advocate for Dalit human rights and to raise awareness of Dalit issues nationally and internationally. More information on the organization can be found here: http://idsn.org/ Pakistan Development Foundation was founded as a student-run initiative with a mandate to support sustainable development and to promote capacity building in Pakistan. As per our mandate of equity and accessibility, the venue space is wheelchair accessible; including the washrooms.

Opening up a new chapter, MIST101 workshop 5 will introduce Unsupervised Learning. In contrast to its supervised counterpart, unsupervised learning is about description and summarization of unlabeled information. It is also quoted as the key to true Artificial Intelligence. Unsupervised learning leverages the power of probabilistic modelling on unlabelled data. The goal is to learn and extract meaningful structures or patterns of real value (i.e. social media mining). This workshop will elaborate on classical paradigms such as Latent Variable Model and Implicit Density Models. The state-of-the-art methods, Variational Autoencoders (VAE) and Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN), will also be introduced along with real-life applications and research highlights of the speakers. JOIN US at GB119, 7:00-9:00 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 9th! Enjoy the pleasant knowledge of unsupervised learning as well as Refreshments !!! Make sure to RSVP through Eventbrite, the $5 deposit will be fully refunded after the event for all attendees. Ticket Link:https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/mist101-5-unsupervised-learning-tickets-39527024394 MIST101 is a series of workshops on machine learning and data science hosted by UTMIST on a bi-weekly basis.

For the month of November (yes, the entire month - please ignore the event time above), the Sustainability Commission will be auditing campus buildings to see whether they need more composting and whether they have lights left on unnecessarily overnight, as well as visiting food service locations to identify ways they can be run more sustainably. This is so that we can advocate more effectively to Facilities and Food Services, and we need all the help we can get! If you're interested in helping out, please sign up here (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1d5ZY7YdZu9RH7JYNmRo3Xb3l0OE_sB1_CZD-wMGIiyI/edit?usp=sharing) for auditing buildings and here (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11Eg1RYUg8drqIYBpEUqUTNaWJfpXYTDbfC5KFVsvCJA/edit?usp=sharing) for visiting food services locations. The list of locations might be pretty overwhelming, but feel free to just sign up for the major buildings you regularly use! We're hoping to have some results by the November 16th meeting (https://www.facebook.com/events/1729520337089435/), at which time we'll think about how to deal with the important locations that have gotten no signups. For food services, the things we're looking out for are listed in the google sheet, though general comments are also helpful. If specific food items are overpackaged/could instead be packaged with recyclable materials, please try to note down what they are. For composting, we'd like a focus on what spaces seem to need composting but don't have it, while for lighting, taking a look from outside the building is probably enough - don't feel obliged to sign up for auditing lighting if you're not usually on campus in the evening! As always, if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, please get in touch with sustainability@utsu.ca. We look forward to hearing from you!

Date: 13th of November, Monday Time: 5 PM to 7 PM Venue: Junior Common Room, University College Described in 2013 by the United Nations as one of the most persecuted people in the world, the Rohingya are a majority Muslim and stateless Indo-Aryan population from Rakhine State, Myanmar. In a divisive political environment of tight military control and following severe persecution, approximately 600,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh. To make matters even more complicated, this has happened under the watch of the civilian Burmese Government led by the Nobel Prize winning Aung San Su Kyi. With terms such as ethnic cleansing, genocide and human rights abuses being used by members of the international community, we invite domestic and international students to engage in meaningful dialogue with each other, faculty members, clubs, external organizations and other stakeholders to raise awareness about this major global issue.

We see more and more companies creating spaces where women, racialized folks, and other minority groups can receive support and opportunities for growth. But how do we ensure that this diversity translates into inclusivity? Oftentimes marginalized workers have their voices silenced or ignored during meetings, on projects, and in the workplace in general. Not only does this negatively impact the experiences of all team members, it also reduces the quality of work. The more diverse that viewpoints are on a team, the more hollistic the work becomes. It is time to bridge the gap between inclusivity and diversity, to improve the workplace and the quality of work being done. Join us, and three leaders in the Healthcare, Financial, and Engineering professions as we explore how to make your teams more inclusive, in a way that ensures that all members have their ideas heard and valued.

For nearly two centuries, the University of Toronto has extended the boundaries of knowledge through research and innovation to address some of the world’s most important questions and spurring economic growth. One hundred years ago, Dr. John Gerald FitzGerald combined his passion for medicine, his scientific knowledge and the resources of the University of Toronto to manufacture and widely distribute vaccines to fight diphtheria, polio, and produce insulin. Today, U of T is translating research into the next medical advance, successful start-up or game-changing technology to support the health and well-being of people globally. The year 2017 marks three significant milestones for the U of T community: The Connaught Laboratories’ 100th, the School of Hygiene’s 90th and the Department of Hospital Administration’s 70th anniversaries. Join U of T’s Vice-President of Research and Innovation Vivek Goel, Dalla Lana School of Public Health Interim Dean Adalsteinn Brown, and Faculty of Medicine Dean Trevor Young for a discussion about the how today’s health researchers and system innovators are narrowing the gap between research and impact while keeping health-care accessible to all.

We aim to bring forward the story of Lucie Vega Jimenez, one such detainee whose tragic loss following her detention further showcases why immediate reform is needed.

Join us for an exciting opportunity to engage internationally, share perspectives and lived experience, and explore ways to work in our communities towards peaceful and justice-based pluralism. Achieving Peaceful Pluralism in a Globalized World Achieving peaceful pluralism, centered on equity and inclusion, has always been a challenging aspiration and no less so in an increasingly globalized world, where ideas, people, and information cross borders at unprecedented rates. The wide spectrum of global conflict and difference ranges from entrenched violent conflict to navigating systemic social and legal challenges and injustices. Cultural differences, miscommunication, and perceived wrongs can further compound the challenges to understand how, as individuals, we can affect positive change, and develop personal strategies to promote peaceful pluralism. What is our role as citizens in developing agency at the institutional, social, and individual levels, and in doing so finding solutions that are inclusive, diverse, and supportive for all citizens?

Under the direction of Daniel Norman, the Hart House Chorus will perform Johannes Brahms' choral work "Ein deutsches Requiem, nach Worten der heiligen Schrift" ("A German Requiem, to Words of the Holy Scriptures"), Op. 45. Featuring soloists Sara Schabas (soprano) and Michael Robert-Broder (baritone), Tim Francom on percussion, and the Chorus's own David Eliakis on the piano. Clara Schumann once wrote, in response to the Requiem: "It is a truly tremendous piece of art which moves the entire being in a way little else does." New York Times music critic John Rockwell wrote: "The choral passages have a weight and dark urgency that can move one deeply. And the solo portions, especially that for the soprano, are really seraphic." Composed between 1865 and 1868, Brahms' Requiem is distinct from other "masses for the dead" in that it is German instead of Latin, and the text is based on Martin Luther's Bible translation instead of the Catholic Vulgate -- appropriate, considering 2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, spurred by Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the door of a church in Wittenberg. The Hart House Chorus is a 50-voice choir auditioned from musically talented students, faculty, and alumni of the University of Toronto. Since its inception in 1972, the Chorus has maintained a reputation for the highest standard of performance locally, nationally and abroad. The Chorus is active in the international choral community, having toured in the Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary and Slovakia. The concert is free to attend, and we will be collecting donations for Sistema Toronto, a local charity which provides "an intensive social program transforming the lives of children through ensemble-based music". Location: The Great Hall, Hart House, University of Toronto

** This event is FREE and open to everyone ** "Computer Vision on Mars ", with Professor Jonathan Kelly Location: McLennan Physical Laboratories (MP), Room 202 Telescope observing: 8 PM on 14th floor of MP (weather permitting) --you will be guided to the telescopes. Abstract: Modern computer vision technologies have been key to improving our understanding of the Red Planet over the past 15 years. Vision systems are deployed on-orbit (e.g., the HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter), on the surface (e.g., the vision sensors on the rovers Spirit, Opportunity, and Curiosity), and have also been used for safe entry, descent, and landing of recent robotic platforms reaching the surface. In this talk, I will review the design and use of several of these vision systems, including, for example, how the Curiosity rover makes use of visual navigation methods when wheel odometry is unreliable (rolling over sandy terrain). ---- About the speaker: Professor Jonathan Kelly is an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies and the Director of the Space & Terrestrial Autonomous Robotic Systems (STARS) Laboratory. Before joining the University of Toronto, he was a Postdoctoral Associate in the Robust Robotics Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and he completed his Ph.D. in the Robotic Embedded Systems Laboratory at the University of Southern California.

Deconstructing Communit(ies); Intersecting Identities What is community? Who belongs? Who is excluded? Who makes the decisions? What does it mean to be within, or outside the borders of a community. How are our intersectional* identities acknowledged or disregarded in various spaces? Anti-Black racism, colonialism, transphobia, Islamophobia, ableism and saneism all play out in different spaces. This Human Library seeks to problematize the construct of communit(ies). Join us to hear people speak about their own triumphs in a complex world that often forces us to simplify our full selves. Each participant in our human library can be checked out, like a book, for 25 minutes of one-on-one time. Hear a story, share an insight and gain perspective.
