Celebrating the Past and Future
Learn the inside story of UC San Diego’s history from four chancellors, listen to Ted-style talks by extraordinary faculty and enjoy a festival in the center of campus. It’s all happening Nov. 13-14 at Founders Celebration—a two-day event jam-packed with food, music, exciting research and historical intrigue—in recognition of the curiosity and passion that have allowed our campus to transform the world.
An annual celebration to commemorate the day UC San Diego was officially founded in November 1960, Founders Celebration events are free and open to the public, including:
Founders Symposium: Wonder how research happening at UC San Diego translates into real-world benefits? Six UC San Diego standout faculty will present interactive Ted talks – Founders style – on two research themes—Understanding and Protecting the Planet and Enriching Human Life and Society. The reception begins at 4 p.m. at The Loft, followed by the symposium at 5 p.m. on Nov. 13 in Price Center East Ballroom.
Through Their Eyes: A Conversation with Our Chancellors: Learn the inside story of UC San Diego’s history from our current and three past chancellors—a candid, wide-ranging discussion with Richard C. Atkinson, Robert C. Dynes, Marye Anne Fox and Pradeep K. Khosla—UC San Diego’s fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth chancellors. The discussion begins at 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 14 in Price Center East Ballroom.

Social Sciences Supper Club
November 20, 2014 - 5:00 PM
Featuring: Bradley Voytek—
BIG Data and the Next Ten Years
Assistant professor of computational cognitive science and neuroscience, and director of the Cognitive and Neural Dynamics Laboratory at UC San Diego
Who cares about data? Apparently, we all should.
With data, the rideshare company Uber now knows where you want to go even before you set foot inside a car. Data tells us the best time to buy airline tickets, suggests products to purchase at the store and movies we may want to watch. It knows us well. We are experiencing an explosion of data; 90% of all digital data didn’t exist two years ago. Researchers are leveraging this data deluge to uncover new insights into human behavior, intelligence and culture, with startling findings.
But what are the future implications for data science? Soon, we will move beyond targeted ads and product recommendations to profound transformations in business, science, and society. Bradley Voytek will draw on his experience as a former data scientist in industry and as a current UC San Diego neuroscientist to share insights on the future of data science and its effect on the world around us.
Voytek may be best known for his tongue-in-cheek explanations of why the living dead are so lively. He's capitalized on the public's fascination with zombies by appearing as an expert on the undead at Comic-Con, and he co-produced a TedEd web video that's gotten more than 185,000 views. Voytek is an advisor to the Zombie Research Society.
Voytek has also created several research tools, most notably the neuroscience literature meta-analytic resource brainSCANr.com with his wife, Jessica Bolger Voytek. He runs the blog Oscillatory Thoughts and has a new book about the zombie brain, Do Zombies Dream of Undead Sheep? (Princeton University Press).
Brought to you by: Division of Social Sciences & UCSD Alumni Supper Club event will include a tapas and wine reception, Faculty Club parking, and lecture. Event starts at 5pm; for reservations please contact Jenelle Dean 858-246-0232 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
