Connectomics is an emerging field of neurobiology that uses cutting edge machine learning and image processing to extract brain connectivity graphs from electron microscopy images. It has long been assumed that the processing of connectomics data will require mass storage and farms of CPUs and GPUs and will take months if not years. This talk will discuss the feasibility of designing a...... More >

When relationships like these are important, media scholars may...... More >

Prof. William Chueh, Stanford University, Materials Science & Engineering
Electrochemically-active materials enable the efficient transformation of electrical energy to and from chemical energy, and are at the heart of carbon-neutral energy cycles. Understanding design rules that govern material composition, microstructure, and architecture holds the key towards rationally optimizing technologies such as batteries and fuel cells.
