How does it work?

Each week, we invite a speaker from the labs -- that person may be a grad student, faculty, or research staff.

They are encouraged to present something different from their most recent paper/talk.

Emphasis is on informality, vision, and inspiration.

Instigators present for twenty minutes. The rest of the hour is then opened for discussion.

The audience is encouraged to
      challenge ideas in the presentation,
        make connections to other, disparate fields of research,
          and respond with hard questions and new ideas.
