TEDxCaltech: The Brain - 1/18/13 Play

On Friday, 18 January 2013, Caltech hosted TEDxCaltech: The Brain, an exciting one-day multidisciplinary public conference, which deconstructed, deciphered, and explored some of the greatest challenges, innovations, concepts, and potentialities of the brain. It was an awe-inspiring event that brought together international scientists, innovators, entrepreneurs, and civic leaders -- along with Caltech faculty, postdocs, students, alumni, and staff -- for an exhilarating day of conversation, stimulation, and learning.

Data Visualization from Data to Discovery - May 23, 2013 Play

A One Day Symposium on the Emerging Science of Big Data Visualization was held at Beckman Auditorium at Caltech on May 23, 2013, in Pasadena, CA, USA. More info: http://www.hi.jpl.nasa.gov/datavis.

Nearly every scientific and engineering endeavor faces a fundamental challenge to see and extract insights from data. Effective Data Science and Visualization can lead to new discoveries. Together, we at Caltech, NASA JPL, and Art Center represent the same convergence of science, engineering and design that drives new Big Data-powered discovery. Industry leaders came together for a series of talks to inspire, unite, and challenge our community to re-examine our practices, and our perspectives.

Machine Learning Course - CS 156 Play

This is an introductory course by Caltech Professor Yaser Abu-Mostafa on machine learning that covers the basic theory, algorithms, and applications. Machine learning (ML) enables computational systems to adaptively improve their performance with experience accumulated from the observed data. ML techniques are widely applied in engineering, science, finance, and commerce to build systems for which we do not have full mathematical specification (and that covers a lot of systems). The course balances theory and practice, and covers the mathematical as well as the heuristic aspects.

The Neuronal Basis of Consciousness Course - CNS/Bi/Psy 120 Play

This award-winning, nine unit course, taught in the spring of each year at Caltech, is concerned with the correlates of consciousness in the brain. The course focuses on the anatomy, physiology and psychology of sensory consciousness in the mammalian brain, in particular visual perception. Other topics include coma and other disturbances of consciousness, clinical case studies (e.g., prosopagnosia, neglect), attention, memory, zombie systems, free will and some philosophical questions of interest to the student of consciousness.

With the help of Leila Reddy, a graduate student in the Koch laboratory, and Leslie Maxfield and her team from Academic Media Technologies at Caltech, these lectures have been filmed, edited and put online here.

They are organized into 16 lectures, each about one hour. They follow the textbook by the lecturer, Christof Koch (with much help from his close colleague and mentor, Francis Crick), "The Quest for Consciousness - A Neurobiological Approach." See each video's "About" text for the lecture's corresponding chapter or chapters.
