The rise of trade protectionism, authoritarianism, China, and data competition are all critical drivers of the global economy. We have seen the consequences of these drivers in the move to Brexit, the election of Trump, the promotion of rival trade and financial arrangements by the Chinese, and cyber operations that are a form of societal warfare...

We often describe asymmetrical and unanticipated actions in a technological context as hacking, yet what is being hacked in our current moment is not just infrastructure, but the structure of civil society. From our political structures and infrastructures, through the political process, to the larger framework of civil society, we live in an era when the intersection of media, technology, and... More >

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.

Dr. Anthony Yen, ASML Lithography
Development of EUV lithography for high-volume manufacturing started in early 2000s. In 2018, 250W of source power became available in the field, giving EUV exposure systems a throughput of >140 wph at an exposure dose of 20 mJ/cm2. Concurrently, the rate of power degradation due to collector contamination has been driven down so that high system throughput can be maintained. Based on this and... More >

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 >

International news media has focused on the recent disappearance and alleged execution of a dissident Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by Saudi officials. Jamal Khashoggi, also known as Cemal Kasikci, did not have a long track record as a "dissident" journalist, but was known as of late to be in an inevitable exile as he had grown increasingly critical of the...

Molecular Complexity and Inorganic Chemistry: Utilizing Non-Covalent Interactions to Control Function
Seminar | October 19 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
Location matters no compound operates in isolation without interacting with its local environment. Metalloproteins are example systems whose active sites contain intricate structures that aid the performance of specific functions with high selectivities and efficiencies. The complexity of these systems complicates the study of their function and the understanding of the properties that give rise... More >
