"The Bit Player" Film Screening

Topic: 
Feature Film about Claude Shannon
Abstract / Description: 

6:30PM - Check-in
7:00PM - Film Screening Begins
8:40PM - Discussion Begins
9:15PM - Program Ends


From Computer History Museum Events: In a blockbuster paper in 1948, Claude Shannon introduced the notion of a "bit" and laid the foundation for the Information Age. His ideas ripple through such diverse fields as communication, linguistics, genetics, computing, cryptography, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and cosmology. In later years, he constructed a mathematical theory of juggling, rode unicycles, wrote the first paper on computer chess and built a flaming trumpet!

Join us for a screening of The Bit Player, a film that combines interviews with leading scientists, archival film, inventive animation and compelling commentary from Shannon himself to tell the story of an overlooked genius who revolutionized the world but never lost his childlike curiosity. After the film, there will be a Q & A with the director Mark Levinson (Particle Fever).

Watch the film trailer here.

EE 185: Interactive Light Sculpture Project

Topic: 
Fractal Flyer Functionality!
Abstract / Description: 

In 2019 the Stanford Electrical Engineering Department celebrated its 125th anniversary. As part of celebration, we will be designing, engineering and installing an interactive light sculpture in the 3-story glass stairwell of the Packard building, named FLIGHT. FLIGHT consists of 76 Fractal Flyers, bird-like shapes inspired by the geometry of the stairwell that move. The wings of the Fractal Flyers are dichroic acrylic, so that during the day their color shifts and changes with the angle of light. At night, they light up with patterns across their bodies and wings. The sculpture will remain in Packard for 3-5 years, allowing refinement, exploration of new engineering ideas, and new interactions.

Date and Time:
