Designing a NISQ Reservoir with Maximal Memory Capacity for Volatility Forecasting
28 Oct 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Samudra Dasgupta
In this talk, we lay out the systematic design considerations for using a NISQ reservoir as a computing engine. We then show how to experimentally evaluate the memory capacity of various reservoir topologies (using IBM-Q’s Rochester device) to identify the configuration with maximum...

Teaching Risk Studies
24 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Berube
Risk studies needs to be taught to all students. While not necessitating a stand-alone status in educational settings prior to post-secondary education, it might behoove to find creative ways to add components of risk studies to K-12 curriculum. This lecture will examine some of the challenges...

Planning for Disaster: Designing a Cleanroom to Minimize Risk Should a Disaster Occur
09 Apr 2007 | | Contributor(s):: John Weaver
The cleanliness levels of a cleanroom or other high-technology facility make it inherently vulnerable to a disaster such as a fire. Historically, even a small event of this type can cause significant downtime and cost millions of dollars in remediation. When designing a cleanroom, steps can be...
