HAI virtual fall conference on Policy & AI

Four Radical Proposals for a Better Society
Abstract / Description: 

This year's virtual fall conference features a novel format. We will present and discuss four policy proposals that respond to the issues and opportunities created by artificial intelligence. Each policy proposal will be a radical challenge to the status quo and capable of having a significant and far-reaching positive impact on humanity. The proposals will be presented to a panel of experts from multiple disciplines and backgrounds, who will vet, debate, and judge the merits of each proposal. We will also encourage audience participation throughout.

Date and Time: 
Tuesday, November 9, 2021 - 12:00am to Thursday, November 11, 2021 - 11:55pm

The Decade of Digital Inclusion An Event Series in Connecting the Next Billion

The Decade of Digital Inclusion An Event Series in Connecting the Next Billion
Abstract / Description: 

Join leaders from around the globe for a field-defining conversation about the challenges and opportunities of connecting the next billion. Your ticket includes access to all virtual sessions during the October 22 symposium in addition to all pre- and post-symposium virtual sessions.

If you'd like to join us for our virtual evening gala to celebrate the groundbreaking work of Andrea Goldsmith, 2020 Marconi Fellow, tickets are available separately.


Defining the next decade of equitable connectivity

We believe Internet access is a basic human right. Join leaders in policy, technology, and digital inclusion advocacy to learn about the critical challenges of connecting the next billion and to develop innovative, practical solutions.

The Decade of Digital Inclusion is your opportunity to join a community of innovators working toward a digitally inclusive future. This timely conversation can only be hosted by the Marconi Society, a nonprofit that bridges the communities of advanced technology and digital inclusion.

In addition to the symposium series, we will make history by recognizing and honoring one of the industry's leading stars, Andrea Goldsmith, as our 2020 Marconi Fellow.

SystemX Alliance 2021 (Virtual) Spring Workshop

Future Directions of Semiconductor Technology - from Atoms to Applications
Abstract / Description: 

For this workshop, we are gathering visionaries and leaders of industry and academia to give us their perspectives followed by an open discussion. The audience will be Stanford faculty and students, and members of the Stanford SystemX Alliance. All talks will be by-invitation only.

Background: Because there is a shift from 2D scaling to a plethora of new materials and new devices for further performance gains, plus a concomitant shift from system-on-chip (SoC) to heterogeneous integration, chiplet partitioning, and advanced packaging, the roadmap ahead for the semiconductor industry is not as straightforward as it was in the past. Yet, there is tremendous value to industry and academia to know what the future of semiconductor technology will look like, and use that knowledge to plan for the future. The goal of this workshop is to have a forum for sharing perspectives and viewpoints on what future may hold in their respective domains. It is hoped that everyone in the food chain will gain from understanding the opportunities and challenges of an abstraction layer above and an abstraction layer below.

Date and Time: 
Wednesday, June 2, 2021 - 9:00am to Thursday, June 3, 2021 - 11:55am
Thursday, June 3, 2021 - 9:00am to Friday, June 4, 2021 - 11:55am
Monday, June 7, 2021 - 4:00pm to Tuesday, June 8, 2021 - 6:55pm

Stanford Compression Workshop 2021

Stanford Compression Workshop 2021
Abstract / Description: 

About the event:
The Stanford Compression Workshop will be held remotely.

The workshop is a gathering of people from academia and industry interested in new and improved ways to model, represent, store, compress, query, process, communicate and protect the data the world is amassing.

Talks at the workshop encompasses diverse areas, including:

  • genomic data compression
  • quantum information
  • video compression with an emphasis on perceptual quality
  • DNA-based data storage
  • neuroscience
  • computation on compressed and distributed data
  • virtual theater technologies
  • compression of neural network models
  • use of neural networks for data compression

Panels with experts from both industry and academia:

  • (25th Feb) Compression and streaming technologies for live theater
  • (26th Feb) DNA-based data storage


  • The workshop will include a poster session, showcasing recent research in the broad area of data compression and its applications.
  • Abstract submissions for works related to any of the talks, panels and beyond are highly encouraged.
  • The poster session will also be virtual and will be organized on
  • More details will be sent to registered participants later.

We look forward to (virtually) seeing you at the workshop!

Beyond IID 8

various (see below)
Abstract / Description: 


Description: The present workshop, the eighth in a series that started in 2013 in Cambridge, will bring together specialists and students of classical and quantum Shannon theory, of cryptography, mathematical physics, thermodynamics, etc., in the hope to foster collaboration in this exciting field of one-shot information theory and its applications. The plan is to have a modest number of talks over the course of the week. Participation is open to all.


  • The topics covered under "Beyond IID" include but are not limited to the following:
  • Finite block length coding
  • Second, third and fourth order analysis
  • Strong converses
  • Quantum ​Shannon theory
  • Cryptography and quantum cryptography
  • New information tasks
  • One-shot information theory and unstructured channels
  • Information spectrum method
  • Entropy inequalities
  • Non-standard entropies (e.g. Rényi entropies, min-entropy, ...)
  • Matrix analysis
  • Thermodynamics
  • Resource theories of asymmetry
  • Generalized resource theories
  • Physics of information


"Beyond IID in Information Theory" started as a workshop in Cambridge, UK seven years ago, organized by Nilanjana Datta and Renato Renner as a forum for the growing interest in information theoretic problems and techniques beyond the strict asymptotic limit, and aimed at bringing together researchers from a range of different backgrounds, ranging from coding theory, Shannon theory in the finite block length regime, one-shot information theory, cryptography and quantum information, all the way to quantum thermodynamics and other resource theories.
