Carolin Crawford

Was the Universe Made for Us?
on: sciencelive
Matt Cunningham chats to Dr Carolin Crawford and Prof Bernard Carr on whether the Universe was made for us? The characteristics of the Universe are just right to allow human life to have evolved, what does this imply and what can it tell us about the Universe around us.

Experimental Design for Efficient Indentification of Gene Regulatory Networks using Sparse Bayesian Models
on:
Identifying large gene regulatory networks is an important task, while the acquisition of data through perturbation experiments (e.g., gene switches, RNAi) is expensive. It is thus desirable to use an identification method that effectively incorporates available prior knowledge --- such as sparse connectivity --- and that allows to design experiments such that maximal information is gained from each one. Our main contributions are twofold: a method for consistent inference of network structure is provided, incorporating prior knowledge about sparse connectivity.

Ian Swanson: Tangled Physics: Superstring Theory and the AdS/CFT Conjecture
on: Caltech
Ian Swanson, a graduate student in physics at Caltech, discusses the quantum field theory is known as the Standard Model of particle physics, providing the most accurate physical predictions in the history of science. Physicists must now unite the Standard Model with the tenets of general relativity, and string theory is arguably the most promising candidate of the last 50 years.

Glenn Edens

Pioneering the Laptop: Engineering the GRiD Compass
on:
Introduced in 1982, the GRiD Compass 1100 was likely the first commercial computer created in a laptop format and one of the first truly portable machines. With its rugged magnesium clamshell case (the screen folds flat over the keyboard), switching power supply, electro-luminescent display, non-volatile bubble memory, and built-in modem, the hardware design incorporated many features that we take for granted today. Software innovations included a graphical operating system, an integrated productivity suite including word processor, spreadsheet, graphics and e-mail. GRiD Systems Corporation, founded in 1979 by John Ellenby and his co-founders Glenn Edens and David Paulsen, pioneered many portable devices including the laptop, pen-based and tablet PC form factors.
