Explore Urban Air Mobility (UAM) from every angle: Vehicles, Technology, Society: Sustainable Aviation Symposium 2019
Conference/Symposium | October 7 – 8, 2019 every day | 8 a.m.-6 p.m. | Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union, Pauley Ballroom
Sustainable Aviation Symposium 2019 (SAS) asks critical questions about equity in the future of air transit, through a holistic examination of technology, platforms, urbanism and other emerging topics. SAS will explore the ideas that will shape UAM and the global transition to accessible, safe, electric aviation for all. Registration required.

Mindfulness is the practice of cultivating present moment awareness imbued with kindness and curiosity. Tuning in to the body and breath can help us to deal with strong emotions like anger and fear. By learning to sit in stillness so we can recognize our emotions, we develop the capacity to choose our response when our buttons get pushed rather than be bound by habitual reactions. This training... More >

Probabilistic Operator Algebra Seminar: Some non-commutative hydrodynamic Euler equations in free probability theory
Seminar | October 7 | 3-5 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall
Dan-Virgil Voiculescu, UC Berkeley
The Euler equations for a flow which preserves the Gaussian measure on Euclidean space can be translated in terms of Gaussian random variables, which raises the question about an analogue in free probability. We derive these "free" Euler equations by applying the approach of Arnold for Euler equations to a Lie algebra of infinitesimal automorphisms of the von Neumann algebra of a free group. We... More >

Cornells work on bike sharing with Citi Bike and its parent company Motivate relies on a combination of data analysis, stochastic modeling and optimization to help inform both the design and operation of the largest bike-sharing operations in North America. Ill discuss our work and its impact, but focus on some of the... More >

This talk focuses on personalized books and personalised digital reading. I will begin with an explanation of what is meant by digital personalisation in early childhood, with some examples of the resources and practices subsumed under this umbrella term. I will outline how digital personalization affects childrens reading experience and how it impacts on childrens learning.

Bridget Carragher, New York Structural Biology Center
The dramatic improvements in the progress of cryo electron microscopy (cryoEM) and cryo electron tomography (cryoET) over the last five years has been accompanied by the adoption of a high level of automation. However, there are several automation challenges that remain to be addressed in the areas of specimen preparation, image acquisition, and analysis. In specimen preparation we need to... More >
Presentation | October 7 | 6:30 p.m. | Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
Situated inside a photographic tradition while questioning the culture that bred that tradition, Nona Faustines practice walks the fine line between past and present, beginning where intersecting identities meet history. Exploring her family album in relationship to collective belonging, and self-portraiture in relationship to empowerment, Faustine examines the legacy of trauma, lineage, and... More >
