Simons Institute Theoretically Speaking Series — What We Can Learn from AdNauseam about the Threat and Power of Data Obfuscation

Suite 100 David Brower Center
  • Helen Nissenbaum, Cornell Tech
Data obfuscation, the creation of noisy data intended to foil data surveillance and behavioral profiling, offers a promising shield. My talk describes one such case, AdNauseam, a controversial browser add-on that obscures a user’s interests by automatically generating website clicks. For decades, powerhouses of the information economy have fended off meaningful...

EECS Colloquium: The Neural Code of Speech

306 (HP Auditorium) Soda Hall
  • Edward Chang, Professor of Neurological Surgery, UC San Francisco
Speaking is a defining behavior of our species. Our research seeks to understand the neural computations that govern our ability to speak and hear words. Advances in direct neurophysiological recordings from the human brain have led to a completely new view on the neural code that translates between sound and meaning. I will focus on our discoveries on the cortical representation of speech sounds...

Disentangling The Strange Metal: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. James Analytis, UC Berkeley, Physics
Our research focuses on the discovery and understanding of exotic materials manifesting novel quantum phenomena that have both fundamental and technological implications, particularly superconductors, exotic magnets and topological materials. Many of the physical problems we are interested in transcend a single material.
