Resoundingly Human: Should your university reopen in the fall? Let mathematical modeling guide the way

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic this past spring saw universities across the country close their campuses and teachers rapidly transition their curriculums to a virtual classroom setting. Now, after months of social distancing and online learning, these same institutions are looking ahead to the fall semester. Joining me to discuss how his university is approaching the upcoming fall semester is Peter Frazier, professor at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.

Resoundingly Human: Will your ride be cancelled? Fighting bias in rideshares

When the time comes for people to once again be able to enjoy activities outside the house, many will rely on rideshare platforms like Uber or Lyft to get them where they need to go, much as they did prior to the COVID pandemic. What they may not know, is the role that bias based on race and sexual orientation could play in whether or not their ride will be canceled. Joining me is Jorge Mejia professor with Indiana University to discuss their work and what can be done to address this disturbing bias.

Resoundingly Human: The dangers of overcrowding: Helping ICUs preserve essential bed space

As the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic continues, supply shortages are something we are all facing, none with a more critical impact than those involving hospitals and healthcare workers. As the number of communities impacted by the virus continues to grow, what do hospitals do when there are more patients in their ICUs than beds to hold them? To discuss a very serious reality facing many hospitals across the country, I am joined by Frances Sneddon, chief technology officer with SIMUL8 Corporation.

Resoundingly Human: The path to success for women in IT

We’d like to think that our performance at work, regardless of our sex, is the primary deciding factor in deciding whether or not we receive a promotion. You do a good job, you earn recognition, right? Unfortunately, according to new research in the INFORMS journal Information Systems Research in certain fields this might not actually be the case. Joining me for this episode is Nishtha Langer, professor with the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to discuss her study on women in the IT field.

Resoundingly Human: Speaking the language of healthcare data

Imagine a world where you could access your healthcare data the same way you access your financial data, where you get notifications on your iPhone when test results are ready and where you can seamlessly track chronic conditions. That world now exists thanks to the health data standard recently mandated by the federal government. Joining me to shed some light on the role that operations research is playing in this development are IBM data scientists Dr. Nasim Lari and Will Rosenfeld.
