Dissertation Talk: Human Intranet: Connecting Wearable and Implantable Devices

Seminar: Dissertation Talk: Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC): EE | December 10 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 2108 Allston Way (Berkeley Wireless Research Center), Rabaey room

 Ali Moin, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

With the explosive growth of the smart society and Internet of Things, enormous amounts of information are available in the enhanced world around us and the cyber-world beyond. Hence the traditional human input/output modalities (sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch as inputs, and motor control as output) no longer have the necessary bandwidth or expressiveness to effectively deal with...   More >

The enormous decrease in the cost of genomic sequencing over the past two decades has enabled researchers to revisit previously unaddressable questions in sequence analysis. However, this boom of genomic information has introduced new sets of problems that often demand computationally efficient methods. In this talk, we describe computational tools for two such settings involving...   More >

Power and Energy Seminar: Time-of-use rate plans to create a smarter energy future.

Seminar: Power Electronics: EE | December 11 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 380 Soda Hall

 Susan Norris, PG&E

 IEEE PELS/PES/IAS

Many California residential electric customers are transitioning to Time-of-Use (TOU) rate plans as part of statewide efforts to create a smarter energy future and healthier environment while balancing the need to keep customer rates affordable. PG&E will soon transition eligible customers from their standard tiered rate plan to the new “Time-of-Use Peak Pricing 4-9p.m. Every Day”. Learn more...   More >

Portable, Collaborative, and Transparent Computational Research from the Start

Presentation: CS: Data Science | December 12 | 1:30-3 p.m. | 190 Doe Library

 Dav Clark, Head of Data Science, Gigantum

 Berkeley Institute for Data Science

While standard practices have emerged - for example, using GitHub to publish the details of a research project - the truth is that a significant amount of manual effort and expertise is required to publish and also to use such open projects. The situation becomes even more untenable when a broader field of expertise comes into play - we can't expect medical doctors and policymakers to learn basic...   More >

Center for Computational Biology Seminar: Topics in Cancer Genomics: Mark Gerstein, Professor, Yale University

Title: Topics in Cancer Genomics

Abstract:
My talk will focus on how to leverage thousands of cancer
genomes and functional genomics datasets to discover
disease-associated regulators and variations. First, I will go over
the ENCODE annotation related to the cancer genome. I will show how
extended gene annotation allows us to place oncogenic transformations
in the context of a large cell...   More >
