Master’s Ceremony Fall 2017

Master’s Ceremony Fall 2017


– [Announcer] Ladies and
gentlemen, please welcome your Fall 2017 Georgie Tech graduates. (crowd cheering) (“Pomp and Circumstance”) (“Mjolnir” by Yosomi) (“Canon in D Major”) (“Bradenburg Concerto No. 3”) (“Water Music Suite No. 2: Alla Hornpipe”) (“Menuet” by J.S. Bach) (“Pomp and Circumstance”) Students, please rise for
the faculty processional. (“Fanfare-Rondeau”) – Well good afternoon and welcome. Will the audience please rise and remain standing for the singing of the National Anthem, which will be sung by the
Georgia Tech Chamber Choir. ♪ Oh say can you see ♪ ♪ By the dawn’s early light ♪ ♪ What so proudly we hailed ♪ ♪ At the twilight’s last gleaming ♪ ♪ Whose broad stripes and bright stars ♪ ♪ Through the perilous fight ♪ ♪ O’er the ramparts we watched ♪ ♪ Were so gallantly streaming ♪ ♪ And the rocket’s red glare ♪ ♪ The bombs bursting in air ♪ ♪ Gave proof through the night ♪ ♪ That our flag was still there ♪ ♪ Oh say does that
star-spangled banner yet wave ♪ ♪ O’er the land of the free ♪ ♪ And the home of the brave ♪ (audience applauds) Good afternoon, please be seated. You know, the singing of
the Star-Spangled Banner is a special time, but
today it’s extra special for one of the members of the stage party. Dean Paul Goldbart was sworn in as a U.S. citizen this morning and this was the first time he sang the Star-Spangled Banner
as a U.S. citizen. (applauding) I’d like to take a moment now to recognize the veterans and active service
members in the audience. If you have served or
are currently serving as a member of one branch
of the military in the U.S. Would you please stand and be recognized. (applauding) At this time, I’m pleased to
introduce Mr. Swarnim Vyas, a Master’s Candidate in Computer Science who will give our reflection. – Keep your face always
toward the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you. This quote by Walt
Whitman has lived with me through my days and
nights at Georgia Tech. As I glance at my days I reflect gleefully in fine granularity, those
eureka moments doing projects, successful interviews
and published research. But what are also equally
etched into my memory are the days of shadows. The moments of self doubt,
loathes and insufficiencies. I’m proud of those moments because that’s where I’ve stood strong, focusing on the brightness
of the sunshine. And that’s what Georgia
Tech has done to all of us. Infused in us the
characteristics of a Phoenix, empowered us to rise time and again. It has instilled in us
the ability to be agile, metamorph and bring out the best in the most adverse scenarios. Transforming this set
of diverse individuals from various walks of life, into those who have learned how to learn. As I was formulating this, I was wondering how Georgia Tech, as an
institution, actually does that. How do they ensure that we swim strong when the current is against us? Is it just mind-boggling
course work, strict deadlines. Quite a few of us would agree to that but beneath the superficial, what is it at the underlying core that makes this place so special? Just one word: people. It is this inspirational
set of people here who ensure that we realize
our potential is limitless, exemplify that it’s not
just the achievements but the obstacles, as well,
that make the journey special. The times of pressure are when diamonds are forged in character of it. I distinctly remember during
one of the midnight breakfasts, when I was turning into a
highly caffeinated zombie, one of the professors, serving food patted my back and said,
“I’m sure you will survive “and it’ll be worth it.” Today, I can say with
immense pride and honor, yes, Georgia Tech, I realize
it is indeed worth it. The journey from
independently shining entities to bright stars in this
Georgia Tech constellation. It is here that we have realized our individual passions and contributions amount to so much more
when they are driven towards a collective good. Each of us, each of us playing our part true to our own identities, while being able to empathize. Just like the professor
from the midnight breakfast. And any of those people
who are here for me. Professors, peers, mentors, staff, advisors, everyone. Reinforce with all these moments, I assure you, we will rise again when we are turned down to ashes. We will swarm together. After the zillionth time of
rise of Phoenix within me, when I’m faced with yet another setback, and I’m questioned, do you
want to get up and fight? Would you like to be reborn? I, being a Yellow Jacket, will shout out at its face, always. Congratulations and thank you very much. (audience applauding) – Thank you Swarnim and good luck. – Thank you so much. (applauding) – So Dean Goldbart was a little surprised when I introduced him but I can tell you there’s three other people
that we’re very surprised because Swarnim’s mother and
father and sister are here and they did not know he
was giving the reflection. If you’re here, stand up and wave. Right here, over here. (audience applauds) Graduates, members of
the faculty and staff, distinguished guests,
families, and friends. It’s my great pleasure to welcome you to the 254th Commencement exercises here at the Georgia
Institute of Technology. This weekends commencement activities recognizes our fall and summer graduates. This morning, we recognized 360 students who received their PHDs. This afternoon, we celebrate 1,450 master’s degree recipients. And tomorrow, we’ll recognize 1,350 undergraduate degree
recipients, as well. And as we do this, we celebrate
the successful conclusion of one chapter of your lifelong education. But it’s important to recognize and acknowledge–
(balloon pops) That’s a balloon. (audience laughs) That you’d not done it alone. With us today are many families, friends and colleagues,
whose love and support has helped to make this day possible. In addition, with us are
members of the faculty. Who have guided and
mentored these students, sharing with them their wisdom, their experience, their
time, and their energy in order to help each
and every one of them reach this important milestone. Would the members of the faculty please stand and be recognized. (applauding) At this time, I’d like to introduce several members of the stage party and I ask that you hold your applause as they stand when I call their names and wait until we’ve called all the names before you applaud. First, Dr. Colin Potts, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education. (audience applauds)
(laughing) Dr. Stephen Cross, Executive
Vice President for Research. Dr. Archie Ervin, Vice President
for Institute Diversity. Mr. John Stein, Vice
President of Student Life and Dean of Students. Dr. Leo Mark, Associate
Dean, Professional Education. And Ms. Rita Pikowsky, Registrar. Thank you for being here with us. (audience applauds) This is a momentous day
for you, as graduates, and for your family and friends, who are here with you,
sharing in this celebration of your accomplishments. You’ve worked very hard
to earn your degree from one of the best
institutions in the country, and in some fields, some
of the best in the world. Georgia Tech faculty are engaged in research collaborations
in more than 100 countries. The Institute has global centers in Costa Rica, in Panama, in Singapore and a new joint campus in Shenzhen, China. For more than 25 years,
Georgia Tech has had a campus in Lorraine, France and during that time more than 6,000 students
has spent a semester or more at the Georgia Tech-Lorraine campus. Including both graduate
and undergraduate students. Here at Georgia Tech, we pride ourselves on being trailblazers who
drive real world change by embracing challenges,
thinking critically, and developing innovative solutions. Your Georgia Tech education is designed to prepare you to work collaboratively, to identify challenges,
and to create solutions. You will go on to become
leaders in business, industry, government, and the communities in which you will live, work, and play. Here at Georgia Tech we’re in the business of creating the next: the next
idea, the next technology, and the next innovators and entrepreneurs. We’re empowering the next
generation of scientists, engineers, businessmen and -women, architects and so many others, engendering in each of them the passion and skills that they will need to design our future. You will be forever linked
to this great institution. And we’re looking forward to great things from each and every one of you. (applauding) Our speaker and mace
bearer for the December Master’s Commencement ceremony
is Dr. Gary B. Schuster, the Vassar Woolley Professor Emeritus in Georgia Tech School
of Chemistry and Biology. This past spring, Georgia Tech recognized Dr. Schuster
as the 2017 recipient of the Class of 1934
Distinguished Professor award. This award, which recognizes sustained and outstanding achievement in teaching, research and service, is the highest honor Georgia Tech bestows upon
one of its faculty members. Dr. Schuster has achieved excellence as a researcher, a teacher,
and a university administrator. In addition, he’s been a tireless advocate for scientific enterprise. For 20 years Dr. Schuster
was a faculty member at the University of
Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where he served as head of
the chemistry department from 1989 to 1994. He made his way south
to Georgia Tech in 1994 and assumed the deanship
in our College of Sciences. Dr. Schuster came to Georgia Tech in a time of rapid change. The College of Sciences
had just been established when he joined the institute. And he served as its first dean and as a professor of
chemistry and biochemistry. Under his leadership, the new college helped to build Georgia Tech’s reputation as a global leader in research, education, and technological development. He served as Georgia Tech’s provost and as interim president, demonstrating thoughtful leadership in each of those positions. And I’m indebted to Dr. Schuster, he was the interim president
prior to my arrival and stayed for two years to
hold the position as provost. He’s been called a natural teacher. Those of you who have had
Dr. Schuster for class know that he has three rules. These rules are designed to
help his students stay focused. Number one, no cell phone or computer use, although you can sit on the front row and take notes on your
computer if you want. No eating because it
annoys other students. And no snoring. He says you can sleep but you can’t snore. (audience laughs) You might be able to sneak
by on the first two today but I’m not worried about number three. When you hear Dr. Schuster speak, you’ll be excited and enchanted. He has a way of keeping
people engaged and involved. Please join me in welcoming,
Dr. Gary Schuster. (applauding) – Mr. President, members
of the Georgia Tech faculty and staff, graduates,
their families and friends, it is a pleasure and a great honor to speak to you this afternoon. First I want to add my
sincere congratulations to our graduates. I know that you have worked hard to get to this day, an
effort that required your unflinching commitment
and some sacrifices. I suspect that there are often things that you would have rather done than study for an upcoming exam but you did it and now
you’re about to graduate from one of the top
universities in the world. For that you certainly deserve our recognition and congratulations. (applauding) But I also know that most of you did not arrive at this day alone. The challenges you faced were faced with the support and assistance of your family and friends and we should certainly
acknowledge the professors who led you, inspired you, challenged you, and today join you in the
celebration of your achievement. As president Peterson
told you a moment ago I am here to address you
because I am the 2017 recipient of Georgia Tech’s
Distinguished Professor award. I am extraordinarily proud to have been recognized by my
colleagues with that award. This honor comes at a time
in my career and in my life when it is natural to look back and contemplate the path I’ve taken, the mistakes I’ve made
and a few of the things I’ve learned along that way. That path passed through
graduation ceremonies, much like the one we’re attending today, it took me from the research laboratory to a faculty office and a lecture hall, and then to service and
university administration at the University of Illinois
and here at Georgia Tech. In looking back over those 40 years and thinking about speaking here today, I wondered if a few of
the things I learned might be helpful to you as
your journey continues forward. But first I’m going to
assume that many of you will soon have a leadership role. In fact, based on where we are and what we are doing today, I’m certain that nearly all of you are headed toward leadership positions. You may soon be leading a team focused on a technical or business challenge and some of you, perhaps
not long from now, will be leading complex organizations. It’s no secret, of course, that leadership will require you to make
decisions that will affect you and the others for whom
you are responsible. Now I don’t want to frighten you on a day dedicated to celebration, but everyone who has ever
held leadership responsibility knows that decision-making can
be extraordinarily difficult. I suspect that most of
you already know that. Making a wise decision is difficult because it is absolutely always true that the decision must be made
with incomplete information. That’s a truism because it is impossible for any of us to foresee the future. And the wisdom of the
decision will become apparent only sometime into that future. Moreover, by definition,
leaders lead people and people often act in ways that are impossible to predict. And there are deadlines, doing nothing usually just won’t cut it. So what’s a leader to do? How is the right answer or
the best path forward found? How will you know what to do? Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Here it comes, he’s going to tell us again the top 10 things every
leader needs to know. Well, you’re wrong. I’m not going to do that. Because if you google that question, in a half a second you will
have 33,800,000 answers, that should be enough. Instead I’m going to tell you about three Nobel Prizes, not prizes in chemistry, I know you’re disappointed, but Nobel Prizes in economics. Those prize winners Frederick von Hayek, Daniel Kahneman, and Richard Thaler are not purely economists,
they are part philosopher and part behavioral psychologists. And they thought deeply
about human behavior and applied their discoveries
to decision making. When the Nobel Committee awarded the 1974 economics prize to Hayek they remarked that he started his career in pure economic theory but later broadened his horizon to social and institutional behavior. There is just one aspect of his work that I will mention
today, but it’s a big one: How can you know the right thing to do? Hayek identified three broad strategies. The first is reasoned analysis. Scientists and engineers are especially attracted to this approach. You line up all of the inputs, you list all of the possible outcomes and then you construct a logical path from available inputs to desired outcomes. Seems really simple,
except Hayek points out that in a complex system, especially when people are involved, there are no infallible logical paths. There are too many variables,
many of them unknown and even a small perturbation
in such a nonlinear system can result in a huge outcome change. He’s right. History is packed with stories of how a simple misunderstanding initiated a chain of events that
destroyed an empire. So if reasoned analysis
won’t work, what’s left? Hayek points next to instinct. Sometimes we just know what
the proper decision is. It seems so obviously the right choice that it requires no other justification. Again it seems simple,
except that Hayek tells us that our instincts evolved in a time when we humans lived
exclusively in isolated groups of no more than about 1,000 people and that those instincts
are not completely reliable in a world of global interconnectedness. Of course he’s right. It’s undeniable. We’ve all seen it. People often accept and
act on false stereotypes and instinctual beliefs,
even when they defy logic. Okay, so what’s a person to do if reason and instinct cannot always be relied on? Hayek suggests that custom and tradition often provide a good guide. Traditions are rules of behavior followed by a group of people who don’t necessarily
understand their origin or realize their impact. Hayek emphasized traditions because they evolve to meet needs. Those that don’t work are forgotten. Successful traditions are spread broadly. Traditions are a way for us to acquire and act on the wisdom, insight, and perspectives of the past. Tradition. Pause for a moment and think about what we’re doing here today. We are wearing academic regalia that dates from the 13th century and I walked in carrying the mace, a symbol of military authority
from the 15th century. Why are we doing this? Of course there is no logical explanation but we trust the wisdom of the past and celebrate this
important day of tradition, of transition with ancient
symbols and ceremonies. Our next Noblest is Daniel Kahneman, he won the prize in 2002. He raises bright red flags to warn us of the many ways we are skilled at deceiving ourselves
when we make decisions. Kahneman divides human
cognition and action into two broad categories. The first is a fast
automatic intuitive approach that Kahneman calls System 1. The second, System 2, is
slower analytical and reasoned. System 2 is the rational thoughtful person we like to think we are. But Kahneman shows that it’s System 1 that makes most of our decision. Sometimes, System 2 comes in
later, only when necessary, if we try to justify those decisions. Unfortunately fast System
1 makes a lot of mistakes. Allow me to paraphrase some conclusion from Kahneman’s book,
Thinking Fast and Slow. First, a reliable way of making
people believe falsehoods is frequent repetition. We often confuse familiarity with truth. Advertisers, of course, know this. Moreover, our confidence in a belief depends mostly on the quality
of the story we make up, that link the parts of the story we see, even when those are only a small fraction of the whole story and are not even true. This decision-making error is so common it has become part of our language, we call it jumping to a conclusion. Also we overestimate
how much we understand about cause-and-effect and
regularly underestimate the role random chance plays in events. That’s why casinos in Las Vegas get rich and gamblers get poor. And finally, Kahneman
warns that the illusion that we understand the past
generates over-confidence in our ability to predict the future. Now here’s the scary part. Psychologists have found that
the more complex the decision, the more likely we are to use error-prone, overconfident, prejudiced,
narrow-minded System 1. So future leaders, you
would be well-advised when facing an important decision to slow down and engage
thoughtful System 2 as you try to balance reason,
instinct, and tradition. The final Nobel Prize
winner of the afternoon is Richard Thaler who received
the 2017 prize this year for investigating how limited rationality, social prejudices and lack of
self-control affect decisions. Wow, let me repeat that. Decisions are often made
based on limited rationality, social prejudices, and
lack of self-control. That sounds pretty scary. One of the important
things Thaler taught us is that we confuse ourselves by assigning different arbitrary labels to things that are really the same. Money is an example that we’re
all pretty familiar with. I don’t think I need to convince you that a dollar is a dollar. However, we often create personal budgets with categories to help
us spend our money wisely, example, you might have
a category for clothes but then you unexpectedly receive some clothes for your birthday. Thaler showed that we still often continue to spend the entire clothing
budget to buy clothes even though we don’t need them, rather than shift that money to a different, more beneficial use. That’s a simple but telling example of the danger of arbitrary labels. In the real world, many
of the critical decisions leaders make involve
allocation of resources. It’s necessary that we make sure that we have not fallen into Thalers trap of arbitrary labels before deciding, for example, to spend the excess funds in the equipment budget on new iPhones rather than use that money to give our best employees a bonus. OK, it’s not my intention this afternoon to leave you in great doubt about your decision-making ability. In fact, I’m pretty confident that you are already
pretty skilled in that art. After all, you’re here today. But there is no doubt that even the most skilled decision makers can learn something from these
three Nobel Prize winners. Personally I’ve learned to slow down and think about the assumptions I’ve made. That is, I try to engage
Kahneman’s System 2 to examine the logic,
fairness, and consistency of the decision I’m about to make. Without forgetting, of
course, that Hayek warned me that neither logic, instinct,
or tradition are infallible. And finally I challenge the decision by assessing Thalers
arbitrary labels trap. Have I really examined all
of the available options? It works for me. Perhaps these thoughts will
be valuable to you also. Finally, and maybe this is
the most important part, I want to remind you of one last thing and that’s the advice of folk
philosopher, Bobby McFerrin, whose 1988 worldwide hit song is titled, Don’t Worry, Be Happy. Thank you very much. (applauding) – Thank You Gary we appreciate you being here with us this afternoon. – Thank you. (applauding) – And thank you. (laughs) Now comes the point and the time that you’ve all been waiting for. The conferring of your degrees. The moment of walking across the stage represents the culmination of much work and achievement for each of our graduates. I would ask that after you receive your onstage recognition, you return to your seat and show the same respect
to your fellow students that they demonstrated to you. At this time I’d like to
introduce Dr. Rafael Bras, who will come forward to present the candidates for the Master’s Degree. – Good afternoon. You’re still there, right? You ready? We begin the presentation

(applauding) Upon the recommendation of the faculty of the Georgia Institute of Technology and by the authority
of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, I confer upon each of
you the master’s degree with all of the rights
privileges and responsibilities thereunto appertaining. Congratulations graduates. (applauding) Please be seated. Almost there. (laughing) Congratulations, you’re to be commended. You’ve earned a graduate degree from one of the world’s most
prestigious institutions. Master’s graduates, we are proud of you, of your accomplishments and
all that you will accomplish in your future. You know Georgia Tech alumni are an extraordinary
group of high achievers. To welcome the members
of this graduating class into the Fellowship of Tech, I’m pleased to introduce
Mr. David Bottoms, chair of the Georgia
Tech Alumni Association. (applauding) – Thank you Mr. President and
congratulations graduates. It is my pleasure, on behalf of the Georgia Tech Alumni Association, to welcome you alumni of the Georgia Institute of Technology. I, like many of you, had the opportunity to experience some of the benefits of the Alumni Association as a student. For me it was participation in the Georgia Tech Ambassadors Program and Student Foundation that exposed me to the power of the Georgia Tech network. For you, perhaps, it
has been participation in the Student Alumni Association or through Mentor Jackets,
the nation’s largest student alumni mentoring program. If you are already engaged
with the Alumni Association via the Student Alumni
Association, that’s great. Continue your involvement through
our young alumni programs. If you were a student mentee take the opportunity to now serve as a mentor to a student
a few years behind you. If this is your first exposure
to the Alumni Association, take it from me, there’s no better time to get engaged than
shortly after graduation. With an array of programs and resources geared towards young
alumni, a global network of alumni networks and affinity groups, relevant opportunities
to leverage resources of the Alumni Association abound. You have now joined ranks
with more than 154,000 fellow graduates of Georgia Tech, who not surprisingly are some of the most impressive, accomplished, intelligent and capable people on earth. Your Georgia Tech Alumni
Association stands ready to facilitate your ongoing
connection to Georgia Tech and its incredible alumni. Relationships with whom, I can assure you, will prove to be lifelong. Undoubtedly one of the most important ways to stay connected with Georgia Tech is through participating in Roll Call, Georgia Tech’s annual fund for excellence. Now before you get too nervous, I want to give you some really good news. In recognition of the fact that we know it can be difficult to give as you are just starting your career. Your fellow alumni who
have come before you are personally donating
$25 in each of your names for this year so consider
yourselves covered. Now next year, please make support of Roll Call an annual tradition whether your annual gifts are big or small your support combined
with tens of thousands of other proud alums provide Georgia Tech with the resources that it needs to be relentless in its
continued pursuit of excellence and as a result we’ll ensure
that our alma mater’s future will always be brighter than its past. Again, congratulations and welcome to the Georgia Tech Alumni Association. (applauding) – Thank you David and
thank you for all you do for Georgia Tech and
our Alumni Association. At this time I’d invite the members of the Georgia Tech Chamber Choir to come and lead us in the alma mater followed immediately by
the faculty recessional. The graduates in the
audience are requested to remain standing as the
platform party recesses. Then I invite all of you
to join in the singing of the nation’s best known fight song, The Ramblin Wreck from Georgia Tech. For our newest Georgia Tech graduates, we have a special treat. As you exit the McCamish pavilion the whistle will blow
several times in your honor. Thank you for your
attendance this afternoon. Have a wonderful evening. Congratulations and Godspeed.
