Simple Rules: How to Thrive in a Complex WorldLife gets more complicated every day. Whether you're struggling with information overload, attempting to act effectively with limited resources or trying to change bad habits – Kathleen can help. She and her co-author Don Sulls (MIT) have spent the last decade working with businesses around the world, and have developed a set of highly effective, tried-and-tested rules to help tackle complex problems, whatever they are. So, how do we make the best decisions when deluged with data? How do we solve problems...

Maximal Bounds on Cartesian Powers of Finite GraphsIn the course of their work on the Unique Games Conjecture, Harrow, Kolla, and Schulman proved that the spherical maximal averaging operator on the hypercube satisfies an L2 bound independent of dimension, published in 2013. Later, Krause extended the bound to all Lp with p > 1 and, together with Kolla, we extended the dimension-free bounds to arbitrary finite cliques. We will discuss the classical and immediate contexts for these results and then outline the central ideas of their proofs. Finally, we...

Devices and Networking Summit - Demo 2, Circuit Stickers and Conductive Nanoparticle InkSteve Hodges, Microsoft Research and Yoshihiro Kawahara, University of TokyoCircuit stickers let you build electronic prototypes by sticking components like LEDs, sensors and logic onto a substrate which wires them together. We use paper and conductive silver nanoparticle ink to make this wiring layer—it’s cheap and easy to create by using a felt pen or a domestic inkjet printer. The technology has potential for design exploration, research prototyping, education, and hobbyist projects.

Devices and Networking Summit - Research in Focus 3, Wearable Health MonitoringDesney Tan, Microsoft Research and Shwetak Patel, University of Washington There is an emerging trend to instrument the world with sensors that provide insight and allow us to improve the health and function of various systems. For example, cars now use many sensors for on-board diagnostics, shifting us from reactive crisis-driven repairs to proactive preventive maintenance. Similar trends pervade our homes, workplaces, and outdoor environments. We must apply this approach to the system we arguably care...

It is neither a device, application, nor service. Rather, it is a reconceptualisation of the social relationships amongst these technologies. It is a change which helps us avoid the otherwise inevitability of our users being buried under the cumulative complexity of the increasing number of devices,...

The challenging issue is, this constraint is fundamental and not simply a temporary limitation of current technology. This talk will put forth a vision that breaks free of this constraint. In this vision, mobile users seamlessly use nearby micro datacenters to obtain the resource benefits of...

Paired with 3D printers, cheap sensors and actuators, these allow anyone to prototype the next hot gadget.

The Upright Thinkers: The Human Journey from Living in Trees to Understanding the CosmosA few million years ago, our ancestors came down from the trees and began to stand upright, freeing our hands to create tools and our minds to grapple with the world around us. The Upright Thinkers takes us on a passionate and inspiring tour through the exciting history of human progress and the key events in the development of science. In the process, the book provides a fascinating new look at the unique characteristics of our species and our society that helped propel us from stone tools to written...

BetrFS: A Right-Optimized Write-Optimized File SystemThis talk will describe BetrFS, a file system built on Bepsilon-trees, a Write-Optimized Data Structure (WODS). BetrFS outperforms widely-used file systems, such as ext4 and xfs, on many benchmarks, sometimes by orders of magnitude. A recent paper on BetrFS was the runner-up for best paper at USENIX FAST 2015.The talk will cover - Write-optimized data structures, such as LSM-trees and Bepsilon-trees - Comparison of WODS for file system applications - How to design a file system around the performance...

An average-case depth hierarchy theorem for Boolean circuitsWe prove an average-case depth hierarchy theorem for Boolean circuits over the standard basis of AND, OR, and NOT gates. Our hierarchy theorem says that for every d ≥ 2, there is an explicit n-variable Boolean function f, computed by a linear-size depth-d formula, which is such that any depth-(d-1) circuit that agrees with f on (1/2 + on(1)) fraction of all inputs must have size exp (nΩ(1/d)). This answers an open question posed by Hastad in his Ph.D. thesis. Our average-case depth hierarchy...

Human-Robot CollaborationIn order for robots to collaborate with humans, they must infer helpful actions in the physical world by observing the human's language, gesture, and actions. A particular challenge for robots that operate under uncertainty is identifying and recovering from failures in perception, actuation, and language interpretation. I will describe our approaches to automatic failure recovery using language and probabilistic methods. First we describe how a robot can use a probabilistic language grounding framework...

Assessing the “Creepy” Factor:  Shifting from Regulatory Ethics models to More Proactive Approaches to ‘Doing the Right Thing’ in Technology ResearchWhat constitutes ethical design of technologies, ethical use of data, and ethical research? How can we pay better attention to the ways in which some aspects of our research or outcomes of our designs might seem ‘creepy’?In this talk, I begin with the premise that “doing the right thing” is an outcome of rhetorically powerful tangles of human and non-human elements, embedded in deep—often invisible—structures of software, politics, and habits. Every action by individuals—whether designers, programmers,...
