Computer Systems for the Brain Sciences

Computer systems are vital to advancing our understanding of the brain. From embedded chips in brain implants, to server systems used for large-scale brain modeling, computer systems help shed light on all aspects of brain biology, behavior, and cognition. This talk will show the challenges facing such computer systems. We will discuss the extreme energy needs of hardware used in brain implants, and the challenges posed by the computational requirements of large-scale brain modeling software.

HCI Seminar: Designing Tools for Remote Communication Between Programmers

Abstract — Communication is a fundamental need in the software developers of all levels of experience. Communication tools can help novice programmers seek help and learning resources. For experienced programmers, communication is fundamental to effective coordination. In this talk, I will present several tools aimed at improving remote communication between programmers. First, Codeon explores ways to provide on-demand remote support through semi-synchronous communication.

A Survey of Four Disease Genetics Investigations using the Personalized Medicine Research Project

The Personalized Medicine Research Project biobank has many features making it an ideal source to conduct human genetics studies including a homogeneous population, rich medical record information, and high density genotype data. The aim of this seminar is to provide an overview of results from four disease genetics studies that my lab has recently conducted.  The molecular pathogenesis of virtually all common diseases remains enigmatic.
