IMPOSTOR SYNDROME: “Am I an impostor? And if so, so what?”

Topic: 
IMPOSTOR SYNDROME: “Am I an impostor? And if so, so what?”
Abstract / Description: 

Register in advance at:
vpge.stanford.edu/is1111

An estimated 70% of people experience impostor feelings at some point in their lives. It is widespread across academic campuses, and Stanford is no exception. A campus survey by Professor Margot Gerritsen showed that many students experience the feelings or fear of being a fake, of not having what it takes, the fear of disappointing advisors, of being "found out" to not be as smart as they were thought to be. She will share her findings and some personal experiences with the impostor syndrome, and discuss some ways to overcome it, or at least make steps toward it.

Beyond IID 8

Topic: 
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.

Topics:

  • 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.

EE 185: Interactive Light Sculpture Project workshop

Topic: 
Weekly Workshop
Abstract / Description: 

Workshops for the EE125 art project are Mondays 1-4PM in Packard 001 (Wednesday if Monday is a holiday).

Students, Staff, Faculty, and Friends of the EE department are encouraged to participate.

The art project to celebrate the 125 anniversary of the EE department is coming along nicely. The piece will consist of 50-100 shapes hanging in the stairwell along the white interior wall and exterior glass in a stroke that starts in a point, broadens in the center, then comes to a point again. The individual shapes are inspired by the profile of the stairwell itself as seen from the sky above, and involve dichroic moving elements around a vacuum-formed body. The motion and illumination of each shape is individually programmable.

This quarter, the project is finalizing all of the engineering decisions of an individual shape and building them. The weekly workshops will focus on hands-on building activities to help with this. The current schedule of workshop projects is:

1/6 Strategic planning
1/13 Program wing animations
1/22 Make vacuum-formed bodies
1/27 Install body LEDs
2/3 Build wing mechanisms
2/10 Build communication circuit boards
2/19 Build wings
2/24 Install wings
3/2 Full assembly

Workshops meet 1-4PM in Packard 001.

This timeline may likely change a little as we encounter unforeseen problems. But generally speaking, you can show up to a workshop and expect to be able to take part in building the piece. For the latest schedule, please refer to the link below.

EE 185: Interactive Light Sculpture Project workshop

Topic: 
Weekly Workshop
Abstract / Description: 

Workshops for the EE125 art project are Mondays 1-4PM in Packard 001 (Wednesday if Monday is a holiday).

Students, Staff, Faculty, and Friends of the EE department are encouraged to participate.

The art project to celebrate the 125 anniversary of the EE department is coming along nicely. The piece will consist of 50-100 shapes hanging in the stairwell along the white interior wall and exterior glass in a stroke that starts in a point, broadens in the center, then comes to a point again. The individual shapes are inspired by the profile of the stairwell itself as seen from the sky above, and involve dichroic moving elements around a vacuum-formed body. The motion and illumination of each shape is individually programmable.

This quarter, the project is finalizing all of the engineering decisions of an individual shape and building them. The weekly workshops will focus on hands-on building activities to help with this. The current schedule of workshop projects is:
