Most of what we do is nothing to be proud of. There are exceptions, for instance at Apple, Google, and Amazon. Their recipes for success are relying on a method that focuses on hiring the most brilliant people in the world and empowering them to create wonders. <br /><br />What about the rest of the world – banks, insurance, airlines, defense, telecom, automotive, etc? How can we get these industries to be more innovative and develop better software, faster, cheaper and with happier customers? How can we do that given that the state of the art of our discipline is in such a chaos, characterized by the multitude of competing methods out there?<br /><br />Agile has now moved to Scaling Agile with methods such as SAFe, DAD, LeSS, Nexus, Scrum at Scale and many more. They are at methods war with one another, practices are locked into method prisons, method prisons are guarded by gurus, they are monolithic, they are described in a home-grown way, etc. Clearly all these methods have a lot in common; after all they are about software development. However, there is no explicit common ground so learning one new method means relearning a lot of what you already know. Clearly, these methods all have something of specific value, but that is also hidden and hard to extract for someone just interested in the differentiators.<br /><br />The most powerful way to help the rest of the world to build excellent software is to dramatically increase the competency (and skill) of all of us. There are no shortcuts. Education must start from an understanding of the heart of software development, from a common ground that is universal to all software development endeavors. The common ground must be extensible to allow for any method with its practices to be defined on top of it. This would allow us to sort out the chaos and to increase the competency of all of us. As a plus, that competency increase wouldn’t hurt the brilliant people, but make them even more productive than today.<br /><br />Thus, first we have to find the heart of software development. It is nothing springing from the brows of Zeus, but something that has to be identified by people not just brilliant but with significant experience in developing software. In 2009 the SEMAT (Software Engineering and Method) community was founded by Ivar Jacobson, Bertrand Meyer and Richard Soley. It quickly attracted thousands of supporters and many famous people in the world signed up for an initiative to find what is the heart, called the Essence of software engineering. Hundreds of people were engaged and in 2014 Essence became an international standard. Essence describes the essential things to work with, the essential things to do and the essential competencies to have when developing software.<br /><br /><br /><br /><strong>Biography:</strong><br />Ivar Jacobson was born in Ystad, graduated from Chalmers as an electrical engineer, got his Ph.D. from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, was rewarded the Gustaf Dalén medal from Chalmers in 2003, and made an honorary doctor at San Martin de Porres University, Peru, in 2009.<br /><br />Ivar has both an academic and an industrial career. He has authored 10 books in software, system and business development, most of them best-selling. He has written more than hundred papers, and in the last couple of years had seven papers published in CACM and ACM Queue. He is a frequent keynote speaker at conferences around the world.<br /><br />After graduation from Chalmers he started to work at Ericsson. His major contribution there was the creation of a new way of developing software, component-based development, which was adopted in the development of the AXE system. This system was the greatest commercial success story ever in the history of Sweden, and it still is.  Ericsson rewarded him to work on his doctoral degree during work hours and a grant to facilitate him spending one year at MIT as a visiting scientist. Later he founded the company Objectory, which was acquired by Rational Software, now part of IBM. In 2004 he founded his current company Ivar Jacobson International, now an international leader in software development methods. By Computer Sweden he was ranked as Sweden’s best developer and architect in 2008.<br /><br />Ivar Jacobson is a father of components and component architecture, use cases, the Unified Modelling Language and the Rational Unified Process. He has made significant contributions to modern business modelling and aspect-oriented software development. <br /><br />However, all this is history. Lately he has been working on how to deal with methods and tools in a smart, superlight and agile way. He has developed a practice concept that is now being adopted by both developers and tool vendors. Now he is one of the leaders of a worldwide network SEMAT, which has the mission to revolutionize software development. And this is happening as we speak.<br /><br /><br />https://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Vetenskapsrouletten---Lena-Blom-om-SDG6.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Vetenskapsrouletten---Lena-Blom-om-SDG6.aspxVetenskapsrouletten - Lena Blom om SDG6<p>Lisebergshjulet, Liseberg</p><p>​Släpp kontrollen och var med i Vetenskapsrouletten!

Since this is the time scale of electron dynamics it opens the exciting possibility to follow electron motion in the time domain. Interesting scenarios could be to follow it during a chemical reaction, or for a molecular break-up processes, during the charge-migration that is taking place before nuclear motion sets in. The methods to make this dream come true are still in a rapid development phase.</div> <div>The dynamics, during for example a photoionization process, is encoded in the amplitude and phase of the released electron wave packet. A key quantity is the spectral derivative of this phase, the group delay. It reflects the delay or advance of the electron when it travels through the atomic potential to eventually emerge in the continuum: attosecond interferometric techniques have made such phase information obtainable.</div> <div>During the last decade a number of photo-emission delay studies have been done showing for example distinct delay differences for different atomic orbitals [1-3], or for different bands in solids [4]. In the latter case these differences are giving information on the electron-transport dynamics towards the surface. More recently structures in the continuum such as Cooper minima and resonances [5-7], with rapid spectral phase variations, have been under investigation. In the talk I will discuss some of the experimental methods that have been developed, the role of theory[8], and how we can understand the time-domain measurement that has been performed for a basic processes such as photoionization.</div>https://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Bostadsdag-med-fokus-på-ekonomi.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Bostadsdag-med-fokus-p%C3%A5-ekonomi.aspxBostadsdag med fokus på ekonomi<p>Södra Hamngatan 11, main entrance, Chalmersska huset, Göteborg</p><p>​Under 2018 kommer Centrum för boendets arkitektur, CBA, genomföra bostadsdagar med fokus på ekonomifrågor och bostadsbyggandet.

The problem of dealing with such material is called text normalization. The traditional approach to this problem, and the one currently used in Google’s deployed TTS and ASR systems, involves large hand-constructed grammars, which are costly to develop and tricky to maintain. It would be nice if one could simply train a system from text paired with its verbalization.<br /><br />I will present our work on applying neural sequence-to-sequence RNN models to the problem of text normalization. Given sufficient training data, such models can achieve very high accuracy, but also tend to produce the occasional error — reading “kB” as “hectare”, misreading a long number such as “3,281” — that would be problematic in a real application. The most powerful method we have found to correct such errors is to use finite-state over-generating covering grammars at decoding time to guide the RNN away from “silly” readings: Such covering grammars can be learned from a very small amount of annotated data. The resulting system is thus a hybrid system, rather than a purely neural one, a purely neural approach being apparently impossible at present.<br /><br /><strong>Brief bio:</strong> Richard Sproat is a Research Scientist at Google Research, New York. From 2009-2012 he was a professor at the Center for Spoken Language Understanding at the Oregon Health and Science University. Prior to going to OHSU, he was a professor in the departments of Linguistics and Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was also a full-time faculty member at the Beckman Institute. He still holds adjunct positions in Linguistics and ECE at UIUC. <br />Before joining the faculty at UIUC he worked in the Information Systems and Analysis Research Department headed by Ken Church at AT&amp;T Labs --- Research where he worked on Speech and Text Data Mining: extracting potentially useful information from large speech or text databases using a combination of speech/NLP technology and data mining techniques.<br />Before joining Ken's department he worked in the Human/Computer Interaction Research Department headed by Candy Kamm. His most recent project in that department was WordsEye, an automatic text-to-scene conversion system.

The IPCC Fifth Assessment Report quantified the global “carbon budget”, that is the amount of carbon dioxide that we can emit while still having a likely chance of limiting global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.</span><div><br /><span style="background-color:initial"></span><div>The exact size of the carbon budget cannot be specified with high confidence since it depends on many uncertain factors, including emission pathways for non-CO2 climate forcers. This said, the remaining budgets for the 1.5ºC and 2ºC targets have been estimated at about 200 and 800 Gt of CO2 . With unchanged present emissions at about 40 Gt CO2/year these budgets would be exhausted in as few as 5 and 20 years, respectively. Consequently, most of the IPCC emission scenarios able to meet the global two-degree target require overshooting the carbon budget at first and then remove the excess carbon with large negative emissions, typically on the order of 400‑800 Gt CO2 up to 2100.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>At the same time as negative emissions appear to be indispensable to meet climate targets decided, the large future negative emissions assumed in climate models have been questioned and warnings have been raised about relying on very large and uncertain negative emissions in the future. With the future climate at stake, a deeper and fuller understanding of the various aspects of negative emissions is needed.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>We hope to see you in Gothenburg, Sweden, May 22-24, 2018!</strong></span><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div>The International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions will be held May 22-24, 2018, at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.
