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.

#StanfordToo: A Conversation about Sexual Harassment in Our Academic Spaces, where we will feature real stories of harassment at Stanford academic STEM in a conversation with Provost Drell, Dean Minor (SoM), and Dean Graham (SE3). We will have plenty of time for audience discussion on how we can take concrete action to dismantle this culture and actively work towards a more inclusive Stanford for everyone. While our emphasis is on STEM fields, we welcome and encourage participation from students, postdocs, staff, and faculty of all academic disciplines and backgrounds.
Inter-Collegiate Mixed Reality (ICXR) is the world's premier college community around augmented and virtual reality, and we are stoked to be a part of it.
The first annual Intercollegiate Mixed Reality (ICXR) Festival will be held on April 12th at USC. Students who love VR/AR from all over the country will be gathering to see each other's work, talk about collaborations, and network with VR/AR companies. If you're part of the Stanford community and would like to attend, we will be carpooling down with VR@Berkeley and staying in LA. For more info about how to come, contact Khoi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The lunch will have a roundtable format and is an excellent opportunity to ask questions about grad school, careers in academia etc.
Attendees will receive a doordash gift card to purchase lunch for the event.
If there is a high level of interest in the event, we will hold a lottery to select the attendees.
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.
Welcome back to a new academic year!
We would like to invite everyone to our Fall Virtual Welcome Event on Friday Sep. 25 at 4pm. We will talk more in depth about the events we have planned this year, and how you can get involved! Some highlights: our new Advocacy chair and committee, big/lil sibling pair ups and much more. There will also be a round of trivia (winning team gets a prize) so come by to meet new and returning students in our community and have a great time!
In the meantime and throughout this virtual quarter, feel free to connect with each other and returning students by filling out an entry in our WEE Study/Hobby Buddy doc.
We will try to complete a full mechanism today (cables, shafts, etc.) for show and tell. We also have some progress on wing wiring.
See you then!
Charlie and Prof. Levis invite you to attend weekly meetups for everyone contributing to FLIGHT this summer.
Tuesdays at 8PM PDT.

Dear colleagues and Stanford Community,
I'm forwarding this message at the request of Prof. Allyson Hobbs, open to anyone interested (feel free to share), and with apologies for cross-postings... Prof. Hobbs has created an online space for all at Stanford to join together as a community, featuring a wide variety of great speakers.
As we continue to grapple with these challenging times and seek spaces to discuss racial injustice in America, I am happy to announce that Professor Imani Perry (Princeton University) will be our special guest on the Stanford Community Hour on SATURDAY, JUNE 13 at 1pm PST. **Please note the change in date due to the virtual celebration of seniors on Sunday.**
Please RSVP if you plan to eat lunch.
Chem-H building is new, and just north of the Engineering Quad.
Companies everywhere are building AI teams, but it's still unclear what aspiring machine learning engineers, data scientists, and software engineers should focus on when applying for AI jobs. This talk (illustrated with case studies) walks you through different types of AI organization, different roles within them, the tasks you can work on, and the skills recruiters are looking for in each role.
Please register for food purposes. As it is traditional in our events, pizza will be served.
6:00 P.M. Refreshments and Conversation
