The importance of ties

Paolo Parigi, Department of Sociology, Stanford

For sociologists, the ties that join individuals into relationships are the
result of social processes rather than being entities themselves. A social
network is therefore a representation for something that happens between individuals and that brings people together. Sometimes, however, social processes sever ties and produce an increase in the distance that separates individuals, ultimately generating isolation. In my talk I will first provide a few examples of social processes that generate ties and then I will advance a theoretical scenario for studying processes that instead decrease the number of ties. The positive examples of tie generation come from my work in the fields of political sociology and organization theory. The negative scenario of increasing isolation comes from my work on social network analysis. In presenting these examples, my goal is to stimulate the conversation between social scientists and computer scientists in the field of network analysis

Drinks and Snacks

Dear all,

    Welcome back from the Thanksgiving holiday!  We will have our last language mixer of this quarter tomorrow (Tu) in the living room of the Bechtel International center from 5pm to 6pm.  

    This is a special session. We received a request from Grandma May to translate some Chinese letters. She is an 80 year old American woman who has used her own limited income to support many poor Chinese children over the years. The letters are written by the Chinese elementary students she has been supporting.  Unfortunately, she can't read Chinese.  Therefore, in this session, we will form pairs to translate the letters from Chinese to English, and then polish them into normal English letters.  I believe that both Chinese and English speakers can learn how to write a good letter this way. Besides, this could be the best Christmas gift for Grandma May!

    Hope to see you all there on time!  Drinks and snacks are provided as usual~

Best,
Jackie

On the Competitive Ration of Online Sampling Auctions

Georgios Pierrakos from the University of California, Berkeley.

We study online profit-maximizing auctions for digital goods with
adversarial bid selection and uniformly random arrivals. Our goal is to
design auctions that are constant competitive with F^(2); in this sense
our model lies at the intersection of prior-free mechanism design and
secretary problems. We first give a generic reduction that transforms
any offline auction to an online one, with only a loss of a factor of 2
in the competitive ratio; we then present some natural auctions, both
randomized and deterministic, and study their competitive ratio; our
analysis reveals some interesting connections of one of these auctions
with RSOP, which we further investigate in our final section.

Patents, Biologic Drugs, and Biotechs - THURS 11/18 4-6

As part of the health care reform, a faster FDA approval process for biosimilar drugs (generic versions of drugs made by means of biological processes involving recombinant DNA technology) was created.  These laws also set up new rules for patent disputes involving those drugs.  The new rules may influence the practical value of patents on biologic drugs and which drugs biotechs choose to develop and to market. 

The panel will feature speakers from Genentech, Hospira, and Momenta Pharma, Inc., and there will be plenty of time for people to meet the speakers after the panel discussion.

Trying To Make Solar Cells Better Using Nanotechnology:
A Graduate Student's Journey to Figure Out Something New In A Crowded Field


Brian Hardin

Department of Materials Science and Engineering
Graduate of the McGehee Group

Public interest and research dollars in the field of solar power has increased exponentially in the last decade creating an influx of hungry graduate students looking to make improvements in well studied systems in a variety of weird, often times fundamentally flawed ways. Creating research projects that are both novel and potentially useful is a very long and daunting process. I will begin by discussing how I developed my research projects involving dye-sensitized solar cells, which eventually became my thesis, and then describe our current research efforts in solar power.


Scientific Title: Using Energy Transfer in Nanoporous Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells to Improve Light Harvesting

Liquid Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) are an emerging PV technology with the potential for large scale manufacturing and low cost processing. However, the power conversion efficiency of DSCs must increase from 11% to 14% to be commercially competitive with conventional solar cell technologies. DSCs do not completely absorb all of the photons from the visible and near infrared portion of the solar spectrum and consequently have lower short circuit photocurrent densities compared to inorganic photovoltaic devices. A variety of sensitizing dyes have been explored, but it is extremely challenging to develop a single dye that can absorb in the visible and NIR spectrum. I will present a new design where energy relay dyes unattached to the titania absorb high energy photons and transfer their energy to the sensitizing dye via Förster resonant energy transfer. This novel architecture allows for broader spectral absorption and an increase in dye loading. In liquid DSCs, we have demonstrated a 26% increase in the power conversion efficiency when using an energy relay dye with an organic, near-infrared sensitizing dye.

"A Day in the Life of a Hijabi" is a campus-wide challenge that encourages Stanford students to explore the Muslim woman's choice and decision to wear the hijab, or Islamic headscarf, while upholding her right to choose her form of dress and self-expression. This day of activism challenges Stanford females to wear a scarf around their head in solidarity with the right of women to choose, as an opportunity to explore a culture that many times is portrayed as "foreign," and to make a stance against the rising number of discrimination and employment cases in which women who wear the hijab are prevented from applying for certain jobs within the United States. The day also incorporates the support of Stanford males by providing them with a free pink t-shirt (with the slogan "It's about what's in your head, not on it") and asking them to wear said shirt on the awareness day in increased solidarity.
