Spring 2020 Special Seminar: Engineering Genetic Circuits and Cell Fates: from Totipotency to Pluripotency to the Placenta

Seminar | January 21 | 10:30-11:30 a.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

 Jian Shu, Eric Lander Laboratory/Rudolf Jaenisch Laboratory Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research

 Bioengineering (BioE)

Reconstructing the circuits that control how cells detect environmental triggers and adopt specific fates and engineering these circuits to reprogram cellular functions are major challenges in biology. I will focus on two interconnected fundamental questions: 1) how to engineer cell fates and 2) how to measure the dynamic and complex biological ecosystems and understand the principles of...   More >

Expanding the Chemical Toolbox for Acoustic-based Imaging

Seminar | January 21 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Jefferson Chan, Department of Chemistry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

 College of Chemistry

Many disease states are characterized by molecular level changes that occur before detectable symptoms have begun to manifest. In order to maximize treatment outcomes it is essential to accurately detect such alterations at an early stage. Chemical probes designed to selectively image such molecular processes have the potential to not only aid in disease diagnosis but can also provide unique...   More >

Harmonic Analysis and Differential Equations Student Seminar: On the Cauchy problem for degenerate dispersive equations

Seminar | January 21 | 3:40-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Sung-Jin Oh, Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

In plasma physics or fluid dynamics, one sometimes encounters a degenerate dispersive equation, i.e., a nonlinear dispersive equation whose dispersion relation is degenerate (i.e., vanishes at some points). A satisfactory understanding of the Cauchy problem for such equations is still missing, largely due to the appearance of challenging (and interesting!) phenomena from degenerate dispersion,...   More >

Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry: The Fellowship of the Ring: Enumerating pencils with moving ramification on curves

Seminar | January 21 | 3:45-5 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Carl Lian, Columbia university

 Department of Mathematics

We consider the general problem of enumerating branched covers of the projective line from a fixed general curve subject to ramification conditions at possibly moving points. Our main computations are in genus 1; the theory of limit linear series allows one to reduce to this case. We first obtain a simple formula for a weighted count of pencils on a fixed elliptic curve E, where base-points are...   More >

 Alexander Kupers, Harvard

 Department of Mathematics

Disks are among the simplest manifolds but their groups of diffeomorphisms can be very complicated.

Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry: The Fellowship of the Ring: Singularities of generic projection hypersurfaces

Seminar | January 21 | 5-6 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Takumi Murayama, Princeton University

 Department of Mathematics

Classically, it is known that every algebraic variety over an algebraically closed field is birational to a hypersurface in some projective space. Using generic linear projections, one can show that this hypersurface can be taken to have at worst nodal singularities in dimension one, or at worst ordinary singularities in dimension two. We present generalizations of these results to arbitrary...   More >

Early vision in artificial neural networks

Seminar | January 22 | 12-1 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall

 Chris Olah, Open AI

 Berkeley Neuroscience, UC Berkeley

Artificial neural networks are capable of sophisticated vision tasks, including recognizing complex object families and captioning images. But very little is known about how they accomplish this. What happens if we take such a neural network seriously as a kind of "model organism?" In this talk, we give a neuron by neuron account of low-level visual features in InceptionV1, and demonstrate that...   More >

Cell types, and the specificity of synaptic connectivity and signaling between them, in primary visual cortex

Seminar | January 22 | 2-3:30 p.m. | 177 Life Sciences Addition

 Dr. Gabe Murphy, Allen Institute

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

Neurons are frequently classified into distinct groups, or ‘cell types’, on the basis of structural, physiological, or genetic attributes. Constraining the definition and diversity of neuronal cell types likely requires a different, more integrated approach - e..g, assaying the cellular and network attributes of individual neurons and determining the degree to which those attributes co-vary...   More >

 Department of Mathematics

The edge eigenvalue problems arise in many applications. When the dimension of the matrix is extremely large, such as in quantum many-body problems, conventional algorithms become impractical. We reformulate the problem as a non-convex optimization problem and propose a family of coordinate descent methods to address it. Based on our convergence analysis of these proposed methods, we tailored one...   More >

Syntactic generalization in natural language inference

Seminar | January 23 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 202 South Hall

 Tal Linzen, Johns Hopkins University

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

Neural network models for natural language processing often perform very well on examples that are drawn from the same distribution as the training set. Do they accomplish such success by learning to solve the task as a human might solve it, or do they adopt heuristics that happen to work well on the data set in question, but do not reflect the normative definition of the task (how one "should"...   More >
