Brown Institute presents "Roles for Computing in Social Justice"

Topic: 
Roles for Computing in Social Justice
Abstract / Description: 

Each year, the Brown Institute sponsors talks that explore the intersection between media and technology. This year three virtual presentations are lined up, each challenging us to think about data and computation in new ways.

Roles for Computing in Social Justice

Recent scholarship in AI ethics warns that computing work has treated problematic features of the status quo as fixed, failing to address and even exacerbate deep patterns of injustice and inequality. Acknowledging these critiques, we ask: what roles, if any, can computing play to support and advance fundamental social change? We articulate four such roles ? computing as a diagnostic, formalizer, rebuttal, and synecdoche ? through an analysis that considers the opportunities as well as the significant risks inherent in such work. We then discuss how these insights may be used to support advocacy work aimed at fostering more equitable and just systems.

Contact: Michael Kirsch (mkrisch@columbia.edu) or Wen Chen (wenachen@stanford.edu) with any questions.

The program provides participants with a stipend (amount TBD).

Are you eligible?
Students must declare EE as their undergraduate major if they participate in REU. With the exception of EE co-terms, in order to be eligible, students may not be seniors when they apply. In the event the number of applicants exceeds the number of available project positions, preference will be given to first time participants. Stanford internally funds the REU Program and as such, it is open to Stanford undergraduate students only. If you are not a Stanford student, please refer to Stanford's Office of Science Outreach <http://oso.stanford.edu/programs/audiences/9-undergraduates-from-other-schools/categories/5-research-internships> for additional research opportunities.

How to apply:
To apply, please visit the REU website at https://ee.stanford.edu/academics/reu/how-to-apply. The website provides detailed instructions on how to fill out the application. Due to the complex student/project matching process, once the application is submitted, you will not be able to make changes.

Before you fill out the application and submit your project preferences, please review the REU 2021 Project Descriptions at https://gradapps.stanford.edu/REU/.  You will be allowed to select UP TO EIGHT projects you are interested in (including your first/primary choice). First choice preferences are optional. If you pick more than eight choices, the dept. will randomly select 8 from your choices. If you have any questions, please email reu@ee.stanford.edu.

Additionally, you will need to answer several questions on the application and submit an unofficial transcript with your application, which you can obtain from AXESS. Applications missing any important information will not be reviewed, so please be prepared to complete the entire application.

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:

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.
