Program Description

The Digital Arts and New Media MFA Program serves as a center for the development and study of digital media and the cultures that they have helped create. Faculty and students are drawn from a variety of backgrounds, such as the arts, computer engineering, humanities, the sciences, and social sciences, to pursue interdisciplinary artistic and scholarly research and production in the context of a broad examination of digital arts and cultures. The Digital Arts and New Media MFA Program (DANM) is a two-year program organized into four interdependent and equally important pursuits: New Praxis—The term “Praxis” has many meanings, which include “translating ideas into action” and “action and reflection upon the world in order to change it.” Pedagogy—DANM trains future arts academics through practical experience.

Terry Winograd. Terry Winograd. Terry Allen Winograd (born February 24, 1946) is an American professor of computer science at Stanford University, and co-director of the Stanford Human-Computer Interaction Group.[2] He is known within the philosophy of mind and artificial intelligence fields for his work on natural language using the SHRDLU program.

Terry Winograd

Education[edit] Winograd grew up in Colorado and graduated from Colorado College in 1966. He wrote SHRDLU as a PhD thesis at MIT in the years from 1968-70. In making the program Winograd was concerned with the problem of providing a computer with sufficient "understanding" to be able to use natural language. Elizabeth Stark. Conferences.oreilly.

My name is Matt Senate.


I spent time as a student at the University of California Berkeley studying Mathemagic, cooperatives, and many other things. I currently reside in the San Francisco Bay Area. I spend most of my time learning, sharing, collaborating, and organizing. Regional Ambassador[edit] I was (until end of Fall 2011) a Wikipedia Regional Ambassador along with Derrick Coetzee for Region 10: California and Hawaii ("Pacifica" for fun). Application for Wikipedia Campus Ambassadors[edit] To apply to become a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, please follow the instructions here.

Howard Rheingold (born July 7, 1947) is a critic, writer, and teacher; his specialties are on the cultural, social and political implications of modern communication media such as the Internet, mobile telephony and virtual communities (a term he is credited with inventing).

Howard Rheingold

Biography[edit] Rheingold was born in Phoenix, Arizona. He attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon, from 1964 to 1968. His senior thesis was entitled "What Life Can Compare with This? Sitting Alone at the Window, I Watch the Flowers Bloom, the Leaves Fall, the Seasons Come and Go. Howard Rheingold sobre "Colaboración" My Daughter's DNA. Father’s genetic quest pays off. Hugh Rienhoff prepared his daughter’s DNA for sequencing at home using second-hand equipment.

Father’s genetic quest pays off

Hugh Rienhoff says that his nine-year-old daughter, Bea, is “a fire cracker”, “a tomboy” and “a very sassy, impudent girl”. But in a forthcoming research paper, he uses rather different terms, describing her hypertelorism (wide spacing between the eyes) and bifid uvula (a cleft in the tissue that hangs from the back of the palate). Both are probably features of a genetic syndrome that Rienhoff has obsessed over since soon after Bea’s birth in 2003. Unable to put on much muscle mass, Bea wears braces on her skinny legs to steady her on her curled feet. She is otherwise healthy, but Rienhoff has long worried that his daughter’s condition might come with serious heart problems. Personal genomics: His daughter's DNA.

Hugh Rienhoff, dad and physician/geneticist, used exome sequencing to find his daughter Bea’s mutation. (Leah Fasten) Genetics is the study of genes, DNA, and variation; heredity is the passing of inherited traits from parents to offspring. Families with one member, typically a child, who has a collection of unusual symptoms that don’t fit any clinical diagnosis may in fact have a genetic disease – but one that arose spontaneously in the child, rather than having been inherited from carrier parents.

Exome sequencing is helping to solve these genetics-but-not-heredity mysteries. Richard Price (writer) Price was born in the Bronx, New York City, the son of Harriet (Rosenbaum) and Milton Price, a window dresser.[1] A self-described "lower middle class Jewish kid", he grew up in a housing project in the northeast Bronx.

He graduated from the Bronx High School of Science in 1967[2] and obtained a B.A. from Cornell University and an MFA from Columbia University. He also did graduate work at Stanford University. Birger Lindberg Møller – University of Copenhagen. Plant Biochemistry A main research interest of mine within plant biochemistry is bio-active natural products.

In particular, the focus of my research group is the biosynthesis, transport, storage and degradation of cyanogenic glucosides and elucidation of their role in the ability of plants to communicate with the environment and to defend themselves against attack from herbivores, pests and abiotic stresses. “In all aspects of their lives plants are able to communicate with their surroundings by using complex biochemistry.”

Yale Law School. Heather L. Heine. Vinton Cerf. Vinton 'Vint' Gray Cerf es un científico de la computación estadounidense, considerado uno de los 'padres' de Internet. Nacido en Connecticut (Estados Unidos) en 1943, se graduó en matemáticas y ciencias de la computación en la Universidad de Stanford (1965). Durante su estancia posterior en la Universidad de California (UCLA) obtuvo la maestría en ciencias y el doctorado. A principios de los años 70 comenzó a trabajar con Robert Kahn en el desarrollo de un conjunto de protocolos de comunicaciones para la red militar, financiado por la agencia gubernamental DARPA.

El objetivo era crear una "red de redes" que permitiera interconectar las distintas redes del Departamento de Defensa de los Estados Unidos, todas ellas de diferentes tipos y que funcionaban con diferentes sistemas operativos, con independencia del tipo de conexión: radioenlaces, satélites y líneas telefónicas.
