 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In healthcare, a tsunami of medical data has emerged, including electronic health records, images, literature, etc. These data can be heterogeneous and noisy, which renders clinical decision-making time-consuming, error-prone and suboptimal. In this thesis, we develop machine learning (ML) models and systems for distilling high-value patterns from unstructured clinical data and making informed...   More >

2001: A Space Odyssey

Film - Feature | November 16 | 3:30-6:10 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic milestone was in every sense an experimental film, harnessing the widescreen, epic format for an intensely metaphysical, ultimately very personal use. 2001 was conceived less as a science fiction narrative than as an experience in space and time. As a re-creation of the dimensions of outer space—taking us beyond deep focus into infinite focus—it has never been matched....   More >

Typical of Porumboiu’s cinema, When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism deals with “the rules of the game,” but the “game” here is filmmaking and the rules, expounded upon at length by director Paul (Bogdan Dumitrache) to actor Alina (Diana Avramut), range from the limits on the length of a shot to the requirement for a nude scene.

Film - Feature | November 16 | 7:30-9:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Bergman’s eccentric made-for-television drama is both a fond tribute to Swedish silent cinema and an autumnal look back at the director’s own career. In a Swedish insane asylum in 1925, a lunatic engineer teams with another patient to create a film, a “living talkie,” based on their own obsessions. Soon they have a cast, a crew, and even a tour across the country. All of Bergman’s great...   More >

Performing Arts - Theater | November 16 | 8-10 p.m. |  Zellerbach Playhouse | Canceled

Initially censored following its premiere in 1664, TARTUFFE is a bold work that is decidedly relevant today. Set in present-day Los Angeles, TARTUFFE is the story of a con man disguised as a pious spiritual leader who wheedles his way into the home of a gullible, affluent patriarch in the midst of a mid-life crisis — promptly setting the household topsy turvy!
