What's "on tap" this spring:

The Robo-Advisor Phenomenon

Tuesday February 13th | 5:30 p.m. | Innovation Den

Dr. Terry Grieb | Department of Business

Digital technology has been a disrupter for the financial services industry for decades, from ATM’s and portfolio insurance in the 1980’s to algos and flash trading in the new millennium. The biggest ongoing shift in the financial services industry is due the rise of robo-advisers, which provide online investment management services using minimal or no human contact. The CFA Institute reports that robo-advisers will have the single greatest impact on the financial services industry over the next five years. The shifting landscape has reduced costs for clients and is causing advisers to rethink how they provide value in a rapidly changing distribution system. This talk will explore the robo-adviser phenomenon and what it means to investors and the financial advising industry that serves them.

The Microbial Imaginary

Wednesday, March 7th | 5:30 p.m. | Human Rights Education Institute

Dr. Jodie Nicotra | Department of English

Germs: foreign invaders we need to defend against or allies we should promote? Investigating how people perceive our relationship with the invisible world of germs and how that's changing, Dr. Nicotra will discuss work she's doing on a book that looks at the rhetoric of microbiome science and our relationship with germs.

Visualizing Science

Thursday, March 29th | 5:30 p.m. | The Art Spirit Gallery

Sally Machlis & Delphine Keim | Dept. of Art + Design

It's often hard to truly grasp the impact of information, data and research. What does the aphid's impact on our environment look like? What will our world look like in 20 or 50 years? Hear from expert artists Sally Machlis and Delphine Keim about how artists and designers can collaborate with seasoned scientists to increase our everyday understanding of complex scientific issues through the visual arts.
