The 69th Research and Presentation (ONLINE) by TIEC Residents






This event is implemented for promoting interaction among participants and forming intellectual networks.
TIEC residents introduced what they study at thier university or institute through Oral Presentation.
*This time, we held the event without audience due to COVID-19. We took a video of the event and published it on our YouTube channel "TIEC&HIH channel" for a period of time.

Awards for Good Question


3 people who asked especially good questions received the prize. The following are the questions from them. (Please check the attachment above "Q&A" for answers to each question.)

(1)June Patrick Bulaon-san(Question to Ms.Chen Yingting)

Great and relevant presentation! I just want to ask two questions:
1. It's interesting that there is less participation during online meetings but 50% more off-topic utterances, why do you think is that the case?
2. It's also insightful that thoughts are more developed during offline meetings compared to online meetings. Given that online meetings will not go out of fashion anytime soon, do you have any preliminary ideas on how to bridge these two gaps?

(2)Aqsa Shakeel-san(Question to Mr.Pohl Michel)

Hi Pohl, you work and results are quiet interesting. I have a question from slide 13 (Results: Prediction Performance accuracy), the bar graph for mean absolute error also shows good results for SnAp-1 compared to UORO. And better results (Maximum error) than UORO for irregular breathing. From your results SnAp-1 seems like another promising technique. So what are the disadvantages of SnAp-1 over UORO? Why should one opt for UORO rather than SnAp-1?

(3)HU-san(Question to Ms.Emily Wong)

Thank you for this wonderful presentation! I understoond your methodology for measuring the age of moon. And I also noticed that you mentioned a different density of crater for a satellite. I just curious how do you evaluate the effect of rotation and revolution of a satellite on the crater density? As we know, the rotation and revolution of our moon are same, so we can not observe the "back face" of our moon. In this case, the "back face" of our moon is always face to outer space, and perhaps, the probability of crater formation is much much higher. That is the case of rotation = revolution. So, how about other cases? Like 1 rotaion period = 2 revolution or 10 rotation period = 1 revolution? Should this effect be considerd in your surface age measuring model, and give some adjustment value?
