  • Making do under low dissolved oxygen: Microbial ecology and biogeochemistry in low-oxygen marine ecosystemsOcean deoxygenation and oxygen minimum zone (OMZ) expansion have profound implications for marine ecology and biogeochemistry. However, a missing link in our understanding of ocean deoxygenation is accurate measurement and modeling of those processes and organisms that are ultimately responsible for consuming dissolved oxygen (DO) in the ocean. Aerobic microorganisms catalyze the ...

  • Climate Engineering: Benefits, Risks, Governance Challenges
    Climate engineering (CE) - intentional, global-scale modification of the environment to offset some of the effects of elevated greenhouse gases - appears able to reduce climate-change risks beyond what is possible with mitigation and adaptation alone, including enabling integrated climate-response strategies that reduce risks in ways not otherwise achievable. Moreover, ...

  • Embeddings for Everything: Search in the Neural Network Era
    Retrieval systems like internet search still use the same underlying keyword-based index they used back in the 1990s. Dan Gillick will describe his research on building a new kind of retrieval system based, somewhat unsurprisingly, on neural networks. Heâll try to explain the key pieces of technology and discuss how ...

  • Combining Physical and Statistical Models in Order to Narrow Uncertainty in Projected of Global Warming
    A key question in climate science is How much global warming should we expect for a given increase in the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gasses like carbon dioxide? One strategy for addressing this question is to run physical models of the global climate system but these models vary in their ...

  • The Parallel Future of the BrowserThe browser needs to get faster. The first browser was created almost 30 years ago. Since then, the browser has moved from its past as a simple document viewer towards a future as a fully-featured application platform. But those applications are testing the limits of current browsers, especially on devices ...

  • Nerd Nite SF #92: Trans Sanfrisco, Math Mysteries, and Slow Science!
    A gender scholar, a mathematician, and a physicist walk into a bar… that can mean only one thing: It’s a new year of Nerd Nite! That bar is the Rickshaw Stop - located at the intersection of trans history, surreal math, and “artisanal” physics - and we have three stable ...
