Electronic + Algorithmic Trading
Fin Tank, Chicago IL
Fin Tank
In this meeting we will discuss different methods of benchmarking trading algorithms. The two most common metrics for financial performance are expected returns and volatility. However, these returns are common measures for long term performance and require more consideration and complexity when designing trading algorithms. We will discuss methods of developing a baseline algorithm that performs predictably, for better or for worse.

Quantum Engineering for Next-Generation Technologies
Fermilab, Batavia IL
Fermilab
This lecture will focus on the remarkable development of a new generation of quantum technologies — an area of research at the border between science and engineering that could change the way we think about information itself. The emerging field of quantum engineering offers the promise of fundamentally new information technologies based on single atoms, where quantum physics – and its exotic properties including entanglement and teleportation – determines their behavior. Professor Awschalom will discuss the creation of prototype devices based on the quantum properties of emerging materials, as well as future applications ranging from powerful quantum computers and atomic memories to tamper-proof encrypted communication, molecular-level imaging, and precision sensing.

Frugal Science – Lecture by Dr. Manu Prakash
Fermilab, Batavia IL
Fermilab
With our planet literally teeming with problems, it’s time to take cost constraints into serious consideration. As physicists and engineers, we know how to make stuff. We use these skills (and field work) to design solutions for extremely resource constrained settings, especially in the field of global health. Our work in this area extends from field diagnostics to hands-on science education. Dr. Prakash leads a curiosity driven research group working in the field of physical biology. Their approach brings together experimental and theoretical techniques from soft-condensed matter physics, fluid dynamics, theory of computation and unconventional micro and nano-fabrication to open problems in biology: from organismal to cellular and molecular scale.
