San Diego Science Festival - UC San Diego and Calit2

submitted by: alexmatthews

When a capacity crowd of more than 50,000 people flocked to Balboa Park on April 4 for what organizers are calling "the largest one-day science gathering ever in the United States.," UC San Diego faculty, staff and students were among the many exhibitors and visitors contributing to the landmark event.

Einstein Robot - UCSD Machine Perception Laboratory

submitted by: alexmatthews
Scientists at UC San Diego's California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) have equipped a robot modeled after the famed theoretical physicist with specialized software that allows it to interact with humans in a relatively natural, conversational way. The so-called "Einstein Robot," which was designed by Hanson Robotics of Dallas, Texas, recognizes a number of human facial expressions and can respond accordingly, making it an unparalleled tool for...

Closing the Gap Between High-Speed Data Transmission and Processing

submitted by: ucsandiego

Electrical engineers at the University of California, San Diego have achieved world-record speeds for real-time signal processing in an effort to meet ambitious goals set by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop the first Terabit-scale technology for optical processing. The technology could have widespread ramifications for networking, computing, defense and other industries.

UC San Diego's Einstein Robot Has 'Emotional Intelligence'

submitted by: ucsandiego

Albert Einstein may have written his last scientific theory more than half a century ago, but he's still honing his emotional intelligence in a laboratory at the University of California, San Diego. Scientists at UC San Diego's California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) have equipped a robot modeled after the famed theoretical physicist with specialized software that allows it to interact with humans in a relatively natural, conversational way.

Welcome to Next-Generation Sequencing 2008 Conference

submitted by: dougramsey
Calit2's Center for Algorithmic and Systems Biology (CASB) recently hosted the UC San Diego Next-Generation Sequencing and Informatics Symposium. The Nov. 9-10 meeting provided an introduction to next-generation sequencing techniques, along with reports on the latest data analysis algorithms and tools. The first day focused on resequencing and de novo sequencing, and the algorithmic developments that are driving the increase in data quality and volume in this field. On day two, the focus...

Setting the Stage: Mobilizing the Metagenomics Community

submitted by: dougramsey

About 250 leaders in the emerging science of metagenomics converged at the UC San Diego division of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) earlier this month for the third Annual International Conference on Metagenomics. The conference was a week-long opportunity to share data and discuss the latest research, explore how advances in computing and sequencing technologies might be of benefit, and build or strengthen collaborations in the field.
