- [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 of master candidates for interdisciplinary degrees across multiple colleges. Will the candidates in analytics, computational science, and engineering paper science engineering, quantitative and computational finance, human-computer interaction, bio-engineering, statistics and cybersecurity, rise and remain standing.

(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.
