Reimagining our pandemic problems with the mindset of an engineer – MIT Technology Review

The last 20 months turned every dog into an amateur epidemiologist and statistician. Meanwhile, a group of bona fide epidemiologists and statisticians came to believe that pandemic problems might be more effectively solved by adopting the mindset of an engineer: that is, focusing on pragmatic problem-solving with an iterative, adaptive strategy to make things work.

In a recent essay, Accounting for uncertainty during a pandemic, the researchers reflect on their roles during a public health emergency and on how they could be better prepared for the next crisis. The answer, they write, may lie in reimagining epidemiology with more of an engineering perspective and less of a pure science perspective.

Epidemiological research informs public health policy and its inherently applied mandate for prevention and protection. But the right balance between pure research results and pragmatic solutions proved alarmingly elusive during the pandemic.

We have to make practical decisions, so how much does the uncertainty really matter?

I always imagined that in this kind of emergency, epidemiologists would be useful people, Jon Zelner, a coauthor of the essay, says. But our role has been more complex and more poorly defined than I had expected at the outset of the pandemic. An infectious disease modeler and social epidemiologist at the University of Michigan, Zelner witnessed an insane proliferation of research papers, many with very little thought about what any of it really meant in terms of having a positive impact.

There were a number of missed opportunities, Zelner sayscaused by missing links between the ideas and tools epidemiologists proposed and the world they were meant to help.

Coauthor Andrew Gelman, a statistician and political scientist at Columbia University, set out the bigger picture in the essays introduction. He likened the pandemics outbreak of amateur epidemiologists to the way war makes every citizen into an amateur geographer and tactician: Instead of maps with colored pins, we have charts of exposure and death counts; people on the street argue about infection fatality rates and herd immunity the way they might have debated wartime strategies and alliances in the past.

And along with all the data and public discourseAre masks still necessary? How long will vaccine protection last?came the barrage of uncertainty.

In trying to understand what just happened and what went wrong, the researchers (who also included Ruth Etzioni at the University of Washington and Julien Riou at the University of Bern) conducted something of a reenactment. They examined the tools used to tackle challenges such as estimating the rate of transmission from person to person and the number of cases circulating in a population at any given time. They assessed everything from data collection (the quality of data and its interpretation were arguably the biggest challenges of the pandemic) to model design to statistical analysis, as well as communication, decision-making, and trust. Uncertainty is present at each step, they wrote.

And yet, Gelman says, the analysis still doesnt quite express enough of the confusion I went through during those early months.

One tactic against all the uncertainty is statistics. Gelman thinks of statistics as mathematical engineeringmethods and tools that are as much about measurement as discovery. The statistical sciences attempt to illuminate whats going on in the world, with a spotlight on variation and uncertainty. When new evidence arrives, it should generate an iterative process that gradually refines previous knowledge and hones certainty.

Good science is humble and capable of refining itself in the face of uncertainty.

Susan Holmes, a statistician at Stanford who was not involved in this research, also sees parallels with the engineering mindset. An engineer is always updating their picture, she saysrevising as new data and tools become available. In tackling a problem, an engineer offers a first-order approximation (blurry), then a second-order approximation (more focused), and so on.

Gelman, however, has previously warned that statistical science can be deployed as a machine for laundering uncertaintydeliberately or not, crappy (uncertain) data are rolled together and made to seem convincing (certain). Statistics wielded against uncertainties are all too often sold as a sort of alchemy that will transform these uncertainties into certainty.

We witnessed this during the pandemic. Drowning in upheaval and unknowns, epidemiologists and statisticiansamateur and expert alikegrasped for something solid as they tried to stay afloat. But as Gelman points out, wanting certainty during a pandemic is inappropriate and unrealistic. Premature certainty has been part of the challenge of decisions in the pandemic, he says. This jumping around between uncertainty and certainty has caused a lot of problems.

Letting go of the desire for certainty can be liberating, he says. And this, in part, is where the engineering perspective comes in.

For Seth Guikema, co-director of the Center for Risk Analysis and Informed Decision Engineering at the University of Michigan (and a collaborator of Zelners on other projects), a key aspect of the engineering approach is diving into the uncertainty, analyzing the mess, and then taking a step back, with the perspective We have to make practical decisions, so how much does the uncertainty really matter? Because if theres a lot of uncertaintyand if the uncertainty changes what the optimal decisions are, or even what the good decisions arethen thats important to know, says Guikema. But if it doesnt really affect what my best decisions are, then its less critical.

For instance, increasing SARS-CoV-2 vaccination coverage across the population is one scenario in which even if there is some uncertainty regarding exactly how many cases or deaths vaccination will prevent, the fact that it is highly likely to decrease both, with few adverse effects, is motivation enough to decide that a large-scale vaccination program is a good idea.

An engineer is always updating their picture.

Engineers, Holmes points out, are also very good at breaking problems down into critical pieces, applying carefully selected tools, and optimizing for solutions under constraints. With a team of engineers building a bridge, there is a specialist in cement and a specialist in steel, a wind engineer and a structural engineer. All the different specialties work together, she says.

For Zelner, the notion of epidemiology as an engineering discipline is something he picked up from his father, a mechanical engineer who started his own company designing health-care facilities. Drawing on a childhood full of building and fixing things, his engineering mindset involves tinkeringrefining a transmission model, for instance, in response to a moving target.

Often these problems require iterative solutions, where youre making changes in response to what does or doesnt work, he says. You continue to update what youre doing as more data comes in and you see the successes and failures of your approach. To me, thats very differentand better suited to the complex, non-stationary problems that define public healththan the kind of static one-and-done image a lot of people have of academic science, where you have a big idea, test it, and your result is preserved in amber for all time.

Apple rehires former HomePod engineer to get its software back on track – The Verge

Apple has hired a former HomePod engineer, Afrooz Family, to head up the team developing HomePod software, according to Bloomberg, which could signal a renewed effort from Apple to make the HomePod more competitive. The company released HomePod software version 15 in September, bringing some welcome features like the ability to use one or a pair of HomePod Mini speakers as the default with an Apple TV 4K. But Apples smart speaker line faces stiff competition, particularly from Amazons and Googles speakers that are equipped with their smart assistants.

Family left Apple in 2016, where he was a senior audio engineer, to co-found audio company Syng with ex-Apple designer Christopher Stringer. (A Financial Times article about Syng described Family as the companys secret weapon.) Syngs claim to fame is its Cell Alpha connected speaker, which offers spatial audio in a Death Star-like design, but it comes with a steep $1,799 price tag. Family left Syng earlier this year, Bloomberg reports.

The first HomePod, which was released in 2018, was lauded for its sound quality but was criticized for its high price, and Apple discontinued it in March. The company released the cheaper and smaller HomePod Mini last year.

Apple didnt immediately reply to a request for comment.

Computer Science and CET still the most preferred among engineering aspirants in Kerala – The Hindu

Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) remains the most preferred engineering branch in the State, thanks to a resurgent campus placement trend boosted by the technology sector.

College of Engineering, Thiruvananthapuram (CET), followed by Government Engineering College (GEC), Thrissur, and TKM College of Engineering, Kollam, also continued to hold sway over engineering and architecture aspirants.

The first phase of allotments has reaffirmed the status quo that has existed as far as students priorities are concerned for several years. State merit seats in CSE were filled with students having ranks up to 95 in the CET. The corresponding ranks in GEC Thrissur and TKM College of Engineering were 265 and 468 respectively.

Jiji C.V., Principal of CET, which recorded over 200% placements last year, said the long-standing demand for Computer Science and related streams has been reinforced by the current trend in campus recruitments. This year too, 56 placements have already been recorded by the seventh-semester CSE batch. These includes two students who have received placements by Amazon, which has offered an annual package of 32 lakh, and five by Oracle for 16.64 lakh per annum.

The other engineering streams that found takers in order of priority were Electronics and Communication Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering. The last State merit seat to be filled among government and government aided colleges was allotted to 7762nd rank-holder for the Instrumentation and Control Engineering stream at the NSS College of Engineering, Palakkad.

Government Model Engineering College, Thrikkakara, functioning under the Institute of Human Resource Development (IHRD), has remained the most attractive option among government-controlled self-financing colleges.

Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology, Kochi, shone bright among private colleges. The college that had received autonomous status last year, received State merit students up to 2673rd rank.

While the available seats of most courses in government and government aided engineering colleges have already been filled, the allotments could witness further movement in next rounds with many students who have joined CET and other top colleges likely to seek admission in IITs, NITs as well as medical colleges.

UMaine civil engineering researchers part of $4M NSF project to create next-gen sensor networks to monitor infrastructure – UMaine News – University…

Three University of Maine civil and environmental engineering researchers will collaborate with Vermont engineers to create the next generation of sensor networks for infrastructure monitoring.

Researchers from the University of Vermont, UMaine and Vermont Technical College were awarded a $4 million grant from the National Science Foundation to develop and test new technologies that could make monitoring the safety and performance of infrastructure less expensive, more accurate and more widespread, resulting in more dependable, durable structures in the future.

The initiative is one of nine in which NSF invested a total of nearly $40 million to fund collaborative networks at 20 institutions through the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Research Infrastructure Improvement Program.

The project, which focuses on building research capacity in fundamental wireless, spectrum management and infrastructure applications, will involve faculty, graduate students and undergraduates at the three schools to create a trained workforce that could design and manufacture the new technologies the research project will develop and use.

At UMaine, Eric Landis, the Frank M. Taylor Professor of Civil Engineering; associate professor Kimberly Huguenard and assistant professor Aaron Gallant will receive $800,000 to conduct research focused on the infrastructure applications of wireless communications for managing infrastructure systems through sensing, communication and control.

Two initial applications will be in coastal monitoring and structural health monitoring/smart structures. The UMaine researchers will create a coastal flood monitoring network that identifies vulnerable infrastructure in real-time during extreme events. Wireless data transmission will provide water level information on a publicly available website and has the potential to inform warning systems for inland inundation and storm surges topping coastal infrastructure.

In addition, the UMaine researchers will use novel sensing and networking to characterize new and existing infrastructure, including concrete, composite materials and additively manufactured systems. The work contributes to national interests in resilient infrastructure, and it will help build UMaine research capacity in this area.

The project will allow us to compress timescales with respect to data collection, analysis and interpretation, Landis says. The nature of most civil engineering problems is that they dont allow for prototypes and other iterative tools engineers typically use for refining solutions and designs. By integrating new sensing and communications technologies with different civil and environmental systems, we will be able to make much more rapid assessments of conditions and we will be able to use that information in new designs.

The projects key contribution will be to develop and deploy wireless sensor networks that can be quickly and cheaply embedded in existing infrastructure and built into new structures that will relay a wealth of data about the structures integrity to cloud-based servers via Internet of Things technology, according to the University of Vermont, the lead institution in the NSF project. The current generation of infrastructure sensors conveys information through cables, often fixed in conduits, that make deploying them expensive, limit their placement within a structure and make moving them difficult.

The new system also will use emerging 5G networks, which allow much greater rates of data transmission and more flexibility in how sensors communicate with the cloud and with one another, resulting in a significantly richer data flow. The system will also employ AI-enabled microrobots able to place the sensors in small or inaccessible spots that humans cant reach.

A UVM news release on the initiative is online.
