Computing in the Cloud - Part 5: "Civics in the cloud" – January 15, 2008
"Computing in the cloud" is one name for services that run in a Web browser and store information in a provider's data center — ranging from adaptations of familiar tools such as email and personal finance to new offerings such as virtual worlds and social networks. This workshop will bring together experts from computer science, law, politics and industry to explore the social and policy implications of this trend. Part 5 includes the third panel of the workshop, entitled "Civics in the clou

Women in Theatre conference: "Issues for the 21st Century" – September 26, 2009
Women artists continue to be excluded from positions of power and visibility in the American theatre industry. Recent research, including a provocative study by Princeton alumni Emily Sands, indicates that plays by women are less frequently produced now than they were at the turn of the 20th century. More women have won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in recent years, including Suzan-Lori Parks (Top Dog/Underdog) Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive) and this year, Lynn Nottage (Ruined), but very fe

An App A Day: Tasty Apps for iPhone and Android - February 24, 2010
Lunch 'n Learn presentation: Smartphones are the new platform, and apps are the core. At the start of the new decade, Apple reported that the App Store for iPhone users has surpassed 100,000 applications, and users have downloaded over 2 billion apps -- not bad for a new market that was created only a year and a half earlier. Meanwhile, Google's Android Market doubled over the last quarter to around 20,000 apps. In this talk Doug Dixon explores the range of apps being developed for these new pl

Bernard Chazelle: Why Your Humble iPod Might Be Holding the Biggest Mystery in All of Science
Moore's Law holds that, every 18 months, computing power doubles. Most of the wonders of the computer age can be directly attributed to Moore's Law. Alas, its days are numbered. What then? In this talk Dr. Chazelle argues that the years ahead will usher in the era of the "Algorithm," a notion that will prove even more disruptive and revolutionary than quantum mechanics was in the 20th century.

17 - Backward induction: ultimatums and bargaining
We develop a simple model of bargaining, starting from an ultimatum game (one person makes the other a take it or leave it offer), and building up to alternating offer bargaining (where players can make counter-offers). On the way, we introduce discounting: a dollar tomorrow is worth less than a dollar today. We learn that, if players are equally patient, if offers can be in rapid succession, and if each side knows how much the game is worth to the other side, then the first offer is for an equa
