    Three Failure Fables

    Three Failure Fables

    Failure is not an option….but why can’t it be? Too often “failure” is a negative. We’re conditioned to the binary options of either failure or success, but in reality, failure is a lot more nuanced. Join us as Professor Peter Adriaens tells three short stories—on failure, risk taking and the lessons learned to achieve positive outcomes.
    Peter Adriaens is a professor of engineering, finance and entrepreneurship at the University of Michigan, working currently on financial innovation and risk analytics for industrial renewal.
      This is a recording of an event hosted by the CID Committee, a pilot program aiming to enhance creativity, innovation and daring. Developed by staff, for staff.

    Disappearing Pioneers

    Disappearing Pioneers

    When women and underrepresented minorities make important contributions to science or technology, why do they later disappear from history? It’s a phenomenon that Lynn Conway, University of Michigan professor emerita of electrical engineering and computer science, has documented since her own erasure. Conway was a driving force in the very-large-scale integration, or VLSI, revolution which triggered the expansion and impact of Silicon Valley, and is credited with making modern digital systems such as cell phones and laptops possible.
    In this episode of RE: Engineering Radio, she reconstructs how her own contributions faded over time and why “others” lose credit.

    Restoration

    Restoration

    Mind-controlled prosthetics—we’ve all seen them in movies, right? They feel like something we should already have, but so far they've been out of reach. The problem isn’t that scientists and engineers can’t make them. It’s that the crucial link between artificial limb and mind needs to be restored, in a way that turns that hardware into humanware. 
    University of Michigan researchers are harnessing brain signals via a groundbreaking interface between man and machine that could give amputees back more of themselves.
