Speaker J. Garrett Morris Abstract Functional programming languages assume that generic types—in the FP parlance, type constructors—are total. Yet functional programmers know better: counterexamples range from container types that make limiting assumptions about their contents (e.g., requiring computable equality or ordering functions) to type families with defining equations only over certain choices of arguments. This gap makes programs harder to write and more prone to error: more pron...

Toxicologists, safety scientists, and risk assessors must convey the substance and importance of their work to non-toxicologists, but often the general public is skeptical, prone to questioning a scientist’s credibility due to mistrust, biases, censorship, and perceived conflicts of interest and issue advocacy. In this three-part webinar series, which features two speakers per webinar, these topics will be addressed through the lens of emerging scientific research and toxicological concerns....

Speaker Rahul Singh Abstract Finding cures for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) is one of the most complex and crucial endeavors in modern science. This class of diseases encompasses a number of infection categories including helminth infections, protozoan infections, bacterial infections, and viral infections. Cumulatively, these diseases impact a significant fraction of the world’s population and various studies have indicated NTDs to be the prime factors depriving the affected people...

"The Post-Typographic Private Press?" The British private press holds such a strong gravitational pull over the bibliophilic imagination that it is hard to see that there is a thriving private press tradition in the twenty-first century. Appearance has a lot to do with it: the books of today don’t look like the books of the Kelmscott, Doves, Ashendene or other British presses, so surely they don't fall into the same category. But is a private press book designated by its physical attributes...

Speaker Alan Mislove Abstract The enormous financial success of online advertising platforms is partially due to the precise targeting and delivery features they offer. These platforms routinely claim to be able to identify which platform users are most likely to meet advertisers’ objectives, and steer ads towards those users via their ad delivery algorithms. This is typically accomplished by estimating the “relevance” of ads to users, but raises a number of concerns about bias, discrimin...
