Donald Knuth's 25th Annual Christmas Lecture: Pi and The Art of Computer Programming

Topic: 
Donald Knuth's 25th Annual Christmas Lecture: Pi and The Art of Computer Programming
Abstract / Description: 

For those unable to come to Stanford, the lecture will be broadcast online as a free livestream.

Abstract:
The number π appears thousands of times in The Art of Computer Programming, in many different contexts. Dr. I. J. Matrix has remarked that its digits, "when properly interpreted," actually convey the entire history of the human race! [See page 41 of Volume 2.] This lecture will examine many interpretations of those digits, both proper and improper.

 

For more details, please see the event page or check out Dr. Knuth's site.

Date and Time:

Kailath Lecture welcomes Vinton G. Cerf

Topic: 
When Sociology, Behavioral Psychology and Technology Collide
Abstract / Description: 

Our technologies, built in many cases on top of Internet infrastructure and associated smart phone and Internet of Things devices, have displayed emerging properties that were not anticipated, at least by me. Like a steam engine that needs a governor to keep from exploding, the Internet writ large needs mechanisms that recognize and control for symptoms of overheating, excessive pressure, and a range of other ills that are largely the consequence of human motivations and behavior. In this talk, I will explore what little I know about the complexity of online human behavior and speculate about the ways in which we might learn better how to manage excesses while retaining human rights and the highly positive benefits of what we now call "cyberspace."

Not Your Parents’ Genomics: new molecular technologies for assessing genomic plasticity and their biomedical ramifications

Topic: 
Not Your Parents’ Genomics: new molecular technologies for assessing genomic plasticity and their biomedical ramifications
Abstract / Description: 

In April 2003, the scientific community announced that a draft sequence of the human genome had been completed. This statement was true only to the extent that many chromosomal regions that resist sequencing by current methods (repetitive sequences, centromeres, and chromosome ends, for example) were ignored. Such sequences may comprise 20 percent, or more, of the human genome. In addition, these elements of genomic sequence contribute disproportionately to programmed and stochastic rearrangements at the DNA level that are involved in diseases and biological evolution. Collaborative efforts between my team and researchigroups here at Stanford use a fusion of biophysical, biochemical, and bioinformatic methods to study such DNA rearrangements; in particular, mechanisms that generate endogenous circular-DNA molecules, termed extrachromosomal-circular DNA (eccDNA). These circular DNAs report on highly dynamic regions of genomes, pointing us to specific regions of linear chromosomes that were previously thought to be stable over time. We have uncovered programmed rearrangements in somatic cells that create variability with respect to tissue type and developmental stage and could be sources of genomic instability. Moreover, information gained from extensive eccDNA profiling of diseased and normal human cells, including stem cells, is yielding insights into molecular aspects of several diseases such as cardiomyopathies and cancers. I will discuss work currently in progress on novel engineering- and bioinformatic-based enabling technologies to accelerate new discoveries in this area.

Abstract / Description: 

Kickoff for community sculpture to commemorate EE's 125th anniversary


Starting our weekly workshops on the interactive light art installation we're building to celebrate the 125 anniversary of the EE department. These weekly workshops are a way for students, faculty, staff, and alumni from across the university to be involved in and contribute to the art piece. Charles Gadeken, the artistic director for the project, will be leading the workshops. This quarter, the workshops will be on Mondays. They will usually be in the afternoons, but Charlie will move the time around some so that almost everyone will be attend at some point.

The workshop on September 30th will be 1-3PM.  If we need more space we'll move to an open area upstairs and leave a sign.

In the workshop, we'll
* Brainstorm artistic visions and ideas
* Look at suggestions from the town hall meeting
* Look at the feedback from the students already in the class
* Begin writing the story of what we are trying to achieve and creating a road map to getting there

Internet of Things and Internet of Energy for Connecting at Any Time and Any Place
Abstract / Description: 

In this presentation, I would like to discuss with you how to establish a sustainable and smart society through the internet of energy for connecting at any time and any place. I suspect that you have heard the phrase, "Internet of Energy" less often. The meaning of this phrase is simple. Because of a ubiquitous energy transmission system, you do not need to worry about a shortage of electric power. One of the most important items for establishing a sustainable society is [...]
