Spring Quarter

Topic: 
Spring quarter
Abstract / Description: 

Virtual courses begin in all schools except the Graduate School of Business, School of Law and School of Medicine. These three professional schools will follow their already planned spring schedules. This delay will allow instructors time to develop course offerings that are consistent with Stanford's expectations of a high-quality learning experience. The delay also will offer students and instructors who are still finishing winter quarter exams a chance to rest and recuperate after a particularly challenging quarter.

 

Date and Time: 
Monday, April 6, 2020 - 8:00am to Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - 5:00pm

AI for Underserved Billions in the Developing World

Topic: 
AI for Underserved Billions in the Developing World
Abstract / Description: 
From our experience developing and deploying AI-for-social-good solutions to help healthcare workers in villages of developing countries weigh newborns using just a smartphone, cotton farmers fight pest attacks, and tuberculosis-control programs find and support TB patients, and advising organizations like the WHO, UN ITU, and governments on AI, I will share some lessons learned, and opportunities for AI to have large-scale impact across domains like health, agriculture, education, and financial inclusion. Such impact will require novel approaches across algorithms, human factors, regulatory frameworks, and systems thinking. AI-for-social-good also offers a rich source of problems for AI, spanning computer vision, weakly-supervised learning, causal reasoning, domain adaptation, uncertainty calibration, explainability, computing on low-resource devices, and privacy-preserving learning. The Wadhwani Institute for Artificial Intelligence is an independent nonprofit research institute that develops and deploys AI-for-social-good solutions in the developing world.

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.

The workshop will focus on curating which prototypes to display and figuring out what's missing. We'll also look at the prototype built by the students taking EE185 (inside and outside), discuss what we learn from it, and propose a few things to try differently next time.
