Indonesia's choices - East Asia Forum Quarterly launch
Indonesian Finance Minister Dr Muhamad Chatib Basri, and other distinguished academic experts from ANU including Professor Hugh White, Professor Virginia Hooker and Professor Andrew MacIntyre, take part in this public forum to launch the latest issue of the East Asia Forum Quarterly, 'Indonesia's Choices'. What next for Indonesia? By any measure, the past 15 years has been a period of extraordinary progress. Yet for all the impressive gains, there is a widespread sense—especially inside Indo
Historical Geology: Georgia Perimeter College
This introductory online historical geology class teaches basic scientific principles like evolution and plate tectonics and reviews Earth history from the Precambrian to the present day. The course readings are online, as well as writable worksheets. The course also asks students to present their research findings as web pages. The course stresses the methods scientists use to determine the information and a good understanding of historical geology.
Artificial Intelligence: Natural Language Processing
This course is designed to introduce students to the fundamental concepts and ideas in natural language processing (NLP), and to get them up to speed with current research in the area. It develops an in-depth understanding of both the algorithms available for the processing of linguistic information and the underlying computational properties of natural languages. Wordlevel, syntactic, and semantic processing from both a linguistic and an algorithmic perspective are considered. The focus is on m
ARC Guide for Educators and Students
This is a searchable database of the cornerstone documents of our government. It has more than 100,000 digitized copies of the National Archives most popular and significant manuscripts, photographs, maps, drawings and other documents. The guide introduces educators and students to the National Archives' ARC. Searching in ARC to learn more about National Archives' historical documents could enrich a classroom activity, a homework assignment, or a research project.
Visible Earth: City Lights of Europe
Growth in "mega-cities" is altering the landscape and the atmosphere in such a way as to curtail normal photosynthesis. By using data from The Defense Meteorological Satellite Program's Operational Linescan System, researchers have been able to look at urban sprawl by monitoring the emission of light from cities at night. By overlaying these "light maps" onto other data such as soil and vegetation maps, the research shows that urbanization can have a variable but measurable impact on photosynthe
"Experimental Microbial Genetics, Fall 2008"
" In this class, students engage in independent research projects to probe various aspects of the physiology of the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa PA14, an opportunistic pathogen isolated from the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients. Students use molecular genetics to examine survival in stationary phase, antibiotic resistance, phase variation, toxin production, and secondary metabolite production. Projects aim to discover the molecular basis for these processes using both classical and cutting
"From Molecules to Behavior: Synaptic Neurophysiology, Spring 2010"
"Like transistors in a computer, synapses perform complex computations and connect the brain's non-linear processing elements (neurons) into a functional circuit. Understanding the role of synapses in neuronal computation is essential to understanding how the brain works. In this course students will be introduced to cutting-edge research in the field of synaptic neurophysiology. The course will cover such topics as synapse formation, synaptic function, synaptic plasticity, the roles of synapses
