3.23 Electrical, Optical, and Magnetic Properties of Materials (MIT)
This class discusses the origin of electrical, magnetic and optical properties of materials, with a focus on the acquisition of quantum mechanical tools. It begins with an analysis of the properties of materials, presentation of the postulates of quantum mechanics, and close examination of the hydrogen atom, simple molecules and bonds, and the behavior of electrons in solids and energy bands. Introducing the variation principle as a method for the calculation of wavefunctions, the course continu
21A.850J The Anthropology of Cybercultures (MIT)
This course explores a range of contemporary scholarship oriented to the study of 'cybercultures,' with a focus on research inspired by ethnographic and more broadly anthropological perspectives. Taking anthropology as a resource for cultural critique, the course will be organized through a set of readings chosen to illustrate central topics concerning the cultural and material practices that comprise digital technologies. We'll examine social histories of automata and automation; the trope of t

7.346 RNAi: A Revolution in Biology and Therapeutics (MIT)
Despite centuries of effort, modern medicine still struggles to find the source of disease and to provide specific treatment without side effects. Both traditional small molecules and protein-based therapeutics have achieved only limited success. What is the next therapeutic frontier? The answer may be RNA interference. In this course, we will focus on the therapeutic potential of RNAi. We will discuss its discovery functions in normal biological processes, utility as an experimental tool, poten
Media and Knowledge Engineering
In today’s society more and more digital data become available as a result of a variety of electronical, biochemical, medial, industrial and other sensing devices and communication systems (Internet, TV, PC, telecommunications). Examples of such data are audio and speech signals, digital images and video, text, and bio molecular data. To interact with machines that handle and process these volumes of data and to interact with the data itself, intelligent representation, processing, reasoning a
