Inequality and Economic Performance Conference

Faculty House, Columbia University

The purpose of the conference is to assess the state of the art: What does economic theory say about how inequality should affect economic performance? What is the macroeconomic evidence on the effects of inequality on economic performance? What are the microeconomic channels through which the effects are exercised? Are there distinct effects associated with inequality as opposed to income declines or increases in poverty? How might policy make growth more inclusive?

Improvisation in the Arts: A Symposium

Columbia University Morningside Campus Faculty Room, Low Memorial Library

Romare Bearden constantly made the color he constantly looked for. His collages mirrored and enacted what critic Laura Harris calls the aesthetics of black social life, moving against the brutalities of removal and enclosure that structure global black experience and, therefore, the modern world. A Black Odyssey refers, though, not only to Afro-diasporic travel and travail but also to an anoriginary movement of in the art of the West that blackness has come to signify—the polyrhythmic, oral-formulaic, insurgent innovation that was also Homer’s home away from home. In this panel, a multi-disciplinary group of artists and scholars will sit in with Bearden, gathering with and around his Odyssean practice, his restless, wandering devotion to the scrap, the fragment, the musical moment, and his abiding in and with the imagination, whose enduring philosophical racialization renders it both disposable and appropriable. The intensity of Bearden’s commitment to the aesthetic contact and content of black social life in its broadest dimensions will serve as an impetus for a wide-ranging discussion of the protocols and implications of improvisation in music, literature, theology, cinema, dance and critical theory. Along with Bearden and, most importantly, the audience, the panel hopes to form a new experimental band.

Electrical Engineering Distinguished Lecture

Davis Auditorium

A Roadmap to Long-Term Brain-Machine Interfaces Speaker: Jan Rabaey, Professor and Co-Director, Berkeley Wireless Research Center, University of California, Berkeley Abstract Acquiring deeper insights into the dynamic behavior of the brain requires imaging capabilities operating at multiple scales of resolution – from microns to the complete brain. Recent advances in microscopic sensing, ULP processing and communications lead to interfaces that may be able to observe thousands if not millions of active neurons in vivo, opening the door for viable long-term brain-machine interfaces that restore function for people with severe neural disabilities. In this presentation, we will present on our vision on how this can be accomplished, the current status, and what hurdles need to be overcome. Examples will include a description of BBMI (the Berkeley Brain-Machine Interface) and “neural dust”.
