Simons Institute Theoretically Speaking Series — Algorand's Forthcoming Blockchain Technology

David Brower Center
  • Silvio Micali, Algorand & MIT
Algorand has solved the famous blockchain trilemma by providing a permissionless, Pure PoS blockchain that is simultaneously fully decentralized, scalable, and secure. The Algorand network launched last June via a world-wide Dutch auction, conducted on chain, proving its ability to handle tokenization at scale. In this talk we shall focus Algorand’s next wave of technology: Vault, Pixel,...

EECS Collquium: Machine Learning: a New Approach to Drug Discovery

306 (HP Auditorium) Soda Hall
  • Daphne Koller, insitro
Modern medicine has given us effective tools to treat some of the most significant and burdensome diseases. At the same time, it is becoming consistently more challenging to develop new therapeutics: clinical trial success rates hover around the mid-single-digit range; the pre-tax R&D cost to develop a new drug (once failures are incorporated) is estimated to be greater than $2.5B; and the rate...
