Kelley School: Patience and Serenity




Meaning: The recalcitrant student must be dealt with firmly, but always fairly and with calm and patience.

Also, as triestine's mother noted, all Chinese people can fly.

Edit, 23:15 CST Thu 04 Dec 2008 - The above is the English-dubbed version, featuring voice actors that aren't quite the equals of Chow Yun-Fat and Zhang Ziyi. I've used it mainly for comprehensibility. The English-subbed Chinese original is better, IMO, but it omits the "three moves" part of the scene.

This is part of the David E. Kelley School of Advising series.

Data Sciences Summer Institute: Multimodal Information Access and Synthesis (DSSI-MIAS)

The Multimodal Information Access and Synthesis Center (MIAS) is concerned with researching technologies for extracting and tracking interesting events and entities from multimodal information sources. A further goal is to support intelligence analysis by facilitating the formulation and evaluation of hypotheses regarding these events and entities. Research directions include:

  • Developing fundamental theories, computational models, algorithms, and tools for information access and synthesis

  • Enabling intelligence analysts to access a variety of data formats, transforming raw data into useful and understandable information

  • Integrating these technologies with existing resources


Another mission of the MIAS Center is to develop diverse human resources for the scientific research, educational, and governmental workforce communities through education and outreach. This goal is exemplified by the Data Science Summer Institute which develops lecture materials, tutorials, and research projects for information sciences.

The dssi_mias program is hosted by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Department of Computer Science.
