Google Tech Talk November 18, 2010 Presented by Dr. Ge Wang. ABSTRACT Due to their mobility, computing power, and sheer strength in numbers, mobile phones have become much more than simply "a phone" (and mobile devices more than simply "portable computers"), increasingly serving as personal and "natural" extensions of ourselves. Therein lies, we believe, immense potential to reshape the way we think and do, and especially in how we engage one another expressively and socially. This presentation explores the research we are doing on mobile music at Stanford and at Smule - including mobile phone orchestras, iPhone's Ocarina, and the new Magic Fiddle on the iPad. We also trace their origins to laptop orchestras, programming languages for music, and an intersection of music, computer science, and the simple joy of building things together. Ge Wang is an Assistant Professor at Stanford University in the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). His research include interactive software systems for computer music, programming languages, mobile music, new performance ensembles (e.g., laptop orchestras and mobile phone orchestras), interfaces for human-computer interaction, and methodologies for education at the intersection of computer science and music. Ge is the author of the ChucK audio programming language. He is the founder and director of the Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk), and the co-founding director of the Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra (MoPhO). Concurrently, Ge is also the Co-founder, CTO, and Chief Creative Officer of Smule, a startup exploring interactive social music for mobile platforms. He is the designer of the iPhone's Ocarina and Leaf Trombone: World Stage, and the iPad's Magic Piano and Magic Fiddle.
Google Tech Talks June 26, 2007 ABSTRACT This is the Google campus version of Stats 202 which is being taught at Stanford this summer. I will follow the material from the Stanford class very closely. That material can be found at www.stats202.com. The main topics are exploring and visualizing data, association analysis, classification, and clustering. The textbook is Introduction to Data Mining by Tan, Steinbach and Kumar. Googlers are welcome to attend any classes which they think might be of interest to them. Credits: Speaker:David Mease
Google Tech Talk April 6, 2010 ABSTRACT Presented by Dr Matthew Todd, School of Chemistry, University of Sydney. Open Science: how can we crowdsource chemistry to solve important problems? Science shaped itself in the founding days of learned societies: individuals or teams competed, in secret, with paper-based communication in subscription journals. Why are we all still doing science like this? The internet has had a major impact in our sharing of data by traditional means, but it has not yet radically changed the way we actually perform science. My lab is involved in a new project a government/WHO-funded research project that is completely open, where we are trying to solve a serious problem in public health through basic research in organic chemistry. The project involves a wonder drug used to treat a tropical disease but we need to improve it, and fast: http://www.nature.com/news/2010/100204/full/news.2010.50.html With an eye on the bigger issue, we propose open methods can allow science to happen faster than traditional means, but we do not yet have the tools to make this happen. This talk is about hard science and soft human nature. It is also an appeal for decent tools scientists need to collaborate properly. The over-riding requirement: low barrier to entry.
http://www.BrandtMorain.com The Howard Stern Show controversy: Our band refused a great chance to be heard on Howard's show due to it's pornographic content. Our website has links to newsprint about this decision. (Best Status - Unsigned Band / Indie Artists / Unsigned Artist / Indie bands) Download free music online at our website. It is in the best music format possible (True CD quality -- 320Kbps). YouTube formats do NOT give you the best music video quality. YouTube is not CD quality. Sample audio of our other songs are also available. You will not find Brandt Morain "Volume One" for sale at Itunes, Amazon, CDBaby, or any other similar vendor due to their unethical EULA agreements. You can only buy Brandt Morain "Volume One" at our website or our affiliate store front partners. http://www.BrandtMorain.com Band / Group Details: Our debut CD "Volume One" has received great reviews, articles and interviews from Music Review, USA Today, The Manning Report with Dr. James Manning, Alternative Press Magazine as well as contributing writers for top publications such as Rolling Stone Magazine. Our album has received substantial Radio Airplay in Phoenix AZ and Albany NY as the official music for two radio talk shows on stations KFNX 100 and Talk 1300 AM. Additionally, segments from our tune "The C is Silent in Rap" are currently broadcast daily from New York City as bumper music for "The Manning Report". Brandt Morain "Volume One" is comprised of multiple genres including 1970-80's style Rock, Country, A Capella, Christian / Religious, a song that is designed to destroy Rap music, Easy Listening and a few recordings that defy categorization. In order to bring you the best Christian music possible, our recording philosophy omits recording industry "innovations" such as Autotune. These devices damage a recording artists performance in our opinion, producing sterile results that have destroyed the quality of some of the best Christian songs and other great music in the industry. Music Review said Brandt Morain Volume One is: "A Tour de Force of Music", "A flawlessly produced album" & "A complete breath of fresh air in today's age". Eddie and Jared wish to extend a special thanks to our fans, The Father & all the great folks who work with Brandt Morain for their love and support! Best Wishes Everyone. Thanks for listening! Enjoy! Jared Brandt & Eddie Morain Brandt Morain Studios, LLC http://www.BrandtMorain.com P.S. This video has received a lot of attention from India, which is a bit surprising to us. Therefore, we wish to thank all the good folks in India for supporting Brandt Morain -- Dhanyavaad shukriyaa India! The video has also received a lot of attention from Great Britain. Go figure. A Christian video rocking in India and the UK---Gandhi wouldn't eat for a week! NOTICE I: There are more than one hundred YouTube sites that have stolen the description, tags and title from this video. They have even stolen the video itself! There are also other websites who are selling illegal ringtones of this song. Please ignore them. They are NOT affiliated with Brandt Morain. We really despise this kind of activity. It sabotages our efforts and makes our job ten times more difficult. Like the song says -- "Men who steal and Men who cheat" NOTICE II: We have been approached by several Record Labels with, shall we say, "questionable" backgrounds or ridiculously lousy deals. Be Aware! We at Brandt Morain know how to do research. Every Record Label that approaches us gets a thorough background check before we reply. So, if you are one of these outfits, please do not waste your time contacting us. NOTICE III: We have been approached by numerous management groups offering to manage Brandt Morain. We are not interested in hiring management. We already have the best manager in all creation--The Father. He is great at his job and He doesn't even charge a percentage! NOTICE IV: We have been approached by many organizations with offers to advertise on this video. Why would we want to dilute the quality of our work by smearing annoying and cheesy ads all over it? We are not interested in selling out for advertisement dollars. Please shill your wares elsewhere. In the words of the venerable philosopher, "I Don't sing for Pepsi, Don't sing for Coke, Don't sing for nobody, Makes me look like a joke! This video is for YOU!"
