6.832 Underactuated Robotics (MIT) 6.832 Underactuated Robotics (MIT)

Description

Includes audio/video content: AV lectures. Robots today move far too conservatively, using control systems that attempt to maintain full control authority at all times. Humans and animals move much more aggressively by routinely executing motions which involve a loss of instantaneous control authority. Controlling nonlinear systems without complete control authority requires methods that can reason about and exploit the natural dynamics of our machines. This course discusses nonlinear dynamics and control of underactuated mechanical systems, with an emphasis on machine learning methods. Topics include nonlinear dynamics of passive robots (walkers, swimmers, flyers), motion planning, partial feedback linearization, energy-shaping control, analytical optimal control, reinforcement learning/a Includes audio/video content: AV lectures.

What are the social and public service impacts of international migration at the local level?

Description

Jon Simmons, Home Office Migration and Border Analysis, gives a talk for the COMPAS Breaskfast Breifing series This briefing summarises research and analysis conducted by Home Office Science to provide further evidence on the social and public service impacts of migration at the local level. It examines migrant composition and impacts at the local, rather than the national, level. It presents a local authority typology, classifying all local authorities within England and Wales into twelve discrete groups, on the basis of key migration and socio-economic indicators, including the different migrant types (e.g. workers, students) and nationalities of migrants they have recently received. Additionally, the research examines impacts of different types of migrant, rather than focusing on migra Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

What are the consequences of changing policies for family migrants in the UK?

Description

Caroline Oliver and Juan Camilo give a talk for the COMPAS Breakfast Briefing series. here has been considerable change in policies affecting migrants coming to and live in the UK as family members over recent years. Last year on 9th July 2012, the entry requirements were revised to incorporate an increased income threshold for the sponsor of non-EU spouses, while the period of time before they become eligible for permanent residence (and in which they face limited access to certain benefits) has been extended. Reasons given for such policies are to decrease the burden on the state and to foster integration. What impact have such policies had on the lives and experiences of family migrants? One year on from the changes, the briefing will offer evidence from two projects: an 18-month projec Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Building Regionality into Immigration Policy: Does it Work? Evidence from Canada

Description

Professor Robert E Wright gives a talk for the Centre for Migration, Policy and Society. Most of the countries of Europe are ageing rapidly, with population and labour force decline being expected in the near future. Although politically unpopular, the governments of most of these countries view managed immigration as being the main way to expand their labour forces. However, most of these countries do not have in place immigration systems that 'select the best'. However, this is changing. For example, a points-based immigration system has been introduced in the United Kingdom. This system puts factors such as employability, skills and language ability (or more generally 'human capital') at the centre of immigration policy. Although the system is often portrayed as being new or novel i Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

What does the 2011 census tell us about ethnic diversity and integration in England and Wales?

Description

Ludi Simpson and Stephen Jivraj give a talk for the COMPAS Breakfast Briefing series. The 2011 Census updates our knowledge about ethnic inequalities in work, housing, education, health and residential patterns. The first results have confirmed the growing ethnic diversity of the UK population, a spreading out of minority populations, and more mixed ethnicity within families and households. For the first time the Census has asked questions on language proficiency and national identity. What does this new information mean for integration of immigrants and their offspring into the communities where they settle? How can the information help to target areas and populations to improve integration? Which trends suggest new contexts for policy?

Rethinking Migration: Joining the dots between migration, trade theory and business strategy

Description

Diane Coyle discusses labour migration movements across borders through firm's decision problems and strategic thinking. The aim of the series is to explore the how migration research has re-configured the social sciences over the past 10 years and in turn how changes in the social sciences have influenced the study of mobility and migration, their patterns, consequences and policies. Each seminar will focus on one of the six COMPAS core research themes; flows and dynamics, labour markets, citizenship and belonging, urban change and settlement, welfare, and the Migration Observatory.

sense of belonging

Description

In the United States, the right to territorial belonging is the only inalienable right U.S. citizens have, and this right is exclusive to U.S. citizens. Most scholarship on citizenship examines how rights are distributed within a polity, yet rarely considers how citizenship can function as a barrier to territorial rights - the right to live in a particular place. This talk draws from interviews with 30 Jamaican deported former legal permanent residents of the United States to address the question: What can we learn about the construction of citizenship in the 21st century through a consideration of people denied territorial rights? Addressing this question enhances our understanding of citizenship in two ways: 1) Tanya Golash Boza calls into question the assumption that citizenship rights Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Lives in Limbo; Immigration, Schooling, and the and the Transition to Illegality

Description

The recent political debates in the United States have raised awareness of the untenable situation facing more than 2.1 million undocumented immigrant children and young adults who have lived in the U.S. since childhood. Each year, tens of thousands of undocumented youngsters leave American high schools to embark upon uncertain futures. But until now, very little has been known about the ways in which these young people come of age and how legal barriers shape their adolescent and adult trajectories. Drawing on extensive fieldwork in Greater Los Angeles, and 150 life history interviews with 20-34 year old, Mexican-origin, undocumented young adults, this study finds that conflicting and contradictory laws uncomfortably position undocumented immigrant youth between spaces of belonging and il Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Campzenship: rethinking the camp as a political space

Description

Nando Sigona, University of Birmingham, gives a talk for the COMPAS seminar series. Drawing on ethnographic research in Italian refugee/nomad camps where forcibly displaced Roma from former Yugoslavia were sheltered, this talk reflects on the spatial dimension of social relations and the social construction of spaces in camps and camp-like institutions. It argues that Agamben conceptualisation of the camp as a space of exception fails to grasp the complexity of social relations in camps. Focusing on the resources, entitlements, and rights of camp residents and their interactions with the state apparatus, the paper explores what Nando Sigona term the comfort of exceptionality, and proposes the concept of campzenship to capture the specific form of citizenship produced in/by the camp, and th Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Citizenship Shadow; Obscene Inclusion, Abject Belonging, or, the Regularities of Migrant Irregularity

Description

This talk introduces the proposition that citizenship and alienage (or migrant status) may be best understood as two key figures of a spectrum of bordered identities. - categorical distinctions among different sorts of people configured in relation to territorially defined states by the differences in space produced by borders. Thinking with the concept of bordered identities, it becomes possible to better appreciate how bordered exclusions do an inclusionary work that is inseparable from the systemic processes of migrant illegalization and the subordination of migrant labour. By juxtaposing the scene of exclusion to what may be called the obscene of inclusion, we likewise complicate conventional notions of belonging and various sorts of abject belonging or membership come better into view Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/
