Are you interested in quantum mechanics or cryptography?

Then check out CPI's next event on Feb 28th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Learn how quantum computers can create security risks and how we can mitigate them!

CPI's Michele Mosca and Sara Zafar Jafarzadeh discuss why it is important to act now, even though cryptographically-relevant quantum computers are not available.

In her most recent book, Discriminating Data (2021), Wendy Chun reveals how polarization is a goal—not an error—within big data and machine learning. These methods, she argues, encode segregation, eugenics, and identity politics through their default assumptions and conditions. Correlation, which grounds big data's predictive potential, stems from twentieth-century eugenic attempts to “breed” a better future. Recommender systems foster angry clusters of sameness through homophily. Users are “trained” to become authentically predictable via a politics and technology of recognition.

Research seminar 

Surgical robots and exoskeletons save lives and enable independence. However, their access, acceptance and use are limited by usability barriers and cost-benefit comparisons with conventional practice. My talk will demonstrate soft robotics techniques and transdisciplinary design strategies that address these challenges and stimulate the discovery of new application areas in engineering and medicine.
