Human data brings with it human biases. Algorithms trained on that data can effectively perpetuate and amplify these biases,
creating feedback loops that deepen social division. In this talk, I walk through how human bias is at play in the end-to-end machine learning cycle,
and the effects this can have within society.

Prof. David Goldhaber-Gordon, Stanford University, Physics
I will explain what is "perfect" 1D conduction and describe several strategies for achieving it. Some require high magnetic fields and/or cryogenic temperatures, but there's now hope of achieving perfect 1D conduction at room temperature with no external magnetic field, through a phenomenon known as the quantum anomalous Hall effect.
This effect was recently realized in thin films of Cr-doped... More >

We shall first recall how to obtain macroscopic PDEs by taking limits of Hamiltonian dynamics as the number of molecules increases to infinity. We shall then construct along these lines explicit examples of spontaneous energy generation (and therefore establish non-uniqueness) for the compressible Euler system, with and without pressure. The examples come from rescalings of well-posed... More >

Xenophons Apology and Memorabilia frequently merit little more than footnotes in the vast scholarly literature on Socrates generally, and on Socrates trial in particular. The present paper belongs to a larger project in which I try to build a systematic case for Xenophon and, to a lesser extent, against Platos Apology as a source for understanding the nature and motivation of the charges...
