An Interactive Discussion on Ethics in EECS Corporate Recruiting

Wozniak Lounge (430) Soda Hall
The EECS department will host a discussion on Engineering Ethics applied to Corporate Recruiting, specifically the department's CAP program. Faculty, staff, and students will present different perspectives on this issue, exemplifying a critical thinking approach to ethical action. We will then break up into small groups to discuss further, and report back.

Novel Nanotechnology Solutions to Oncology Challenges: Nano Seminar Series

120 Latimer Hall
  • Prof. Wenbin Lin, Univ. of Chicago, Chemistry and Radiation & Cellular Oncology
Liposomal nanoparticles have made important contributions to cancer therapy over the two past decades, but their limited tunability and stability hinder further progress in addressing unmet oncology needs. By harnessing the power of synthetic chemistry and nanotechnology, the Lin group has developed several novel classes of molecular nanomaterials, including nanoscale coordination polymers (NCPs)...

EECS Colloquium: Machine Learning for Fluid Mechanics

306 (HP Auditorium) Soda Hall
  • Petros Koumoutsakos, ETH-Zürich
The field of fluid mechanics experiences today a shift from first principles to data driven approaches. While fluid mechanics has always involved massive volumes of data from experiments, field measurements, and large-scale simulations and despite early connections dating back to Kolmogorov, the link between Fluid Mechanics and Machine Learning (ML) has been weak. The situation is rapidly...

Simons Institute Theoretically Speaking Series — Algorand's Forthcoming Blockchain Technology

David Brower Center
  • Silvio Micali, Algorand & MIT
Algorand has solved the famous blockchain trilemma by providing a permissionless, Pure PoS blockchain that is simultaneously fully decentralized, scalable, and secure. The Algorand network launched last June via a world-wide Dutch auction, conducted on chain, proving its ability to handle tokenization at scale. In this talk we shall focus Algorand’s next wave of technology: Vault, Pixel,...

Imaging the Brain at High Spatiotemporal Resolution: Nano Seminar Series

120 Latimer Hall
  • Prof. Na Ji, UC Berkeley, Physics
Physics has long employed optical methods to probe and manipulate matter on scales from the infinitesimal to the immense. To understand the brain, we need to monitor physiological processes of single synapses as well as neural activity of a large number of networked neurons. Optical microscopy has emerged as an ideal tool in this quest, as it is capable of imaging neurons distributed over...
