Santa Fe Institute presents Stanislaw Ulam Memorial Lecture Series 1

Santa Fe Institute presents Stanislaw Ulam Memorial Lecture Series 1

September 24, 2018   7:30 PM

The Limits of Computers in Science and Society with SFI Professor Cris Moore

Computers, algorithms, and artificial intelligence have touched every aspect of our society — from science, to communication, to the justice system. But despite their enormous power, computers have fundamental limits: problems that no program can solve, and thorny issues in fairness and human rights.

Lecture 1: Easy, Hard, and Impossible Problems: The Limits of Computation

Every day we ask computers to solve problems for us — to find the fastest route across town, the shape a protein folds into, or a proof for an unsolved mathematical problem. For all these problems, the space of possible solutions is vast. Why is it that for some problems, we can zoom in on the solution with very little work, while for others it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack? What is it about the structure of a problem that makes it easy, or hard, or even impossible to solve? Prof. Moore will draw analogies between computation and evolution, and take us from simple puzzles to the heights of universal computation, Turing’s halting problem, and the nature of mathematical truth and creativity.

Tickets to this event are FREE.

Limits of Computers in Science and Society Lecture 2 - Data, Algorithms, Justice, and Fairness

Computers, algorithms, and artificial intelligence have touched every aspect of our society — from science, to communication, to the justice system. But despite their enormous power, computers have fundamental limits: problems that no program can solve, and thorny issues in fairness and human rights.

Algorithms are used today to predict whether defendants will show up for court, whether they should be released on bail, and whether they will be good citizens if given parole. How accurate are these algorithms? What data are they based on? And how fair are they to different groups of people? Over the past few years, a controversy has erupted over the issue of algorithmic fairness — whether these algorithms treat groups of people differently than others. Moore will lead us through how these algorithms work, what data they are based on, and how “fairness” and “accuracy” are slippery terms. Can decisions made by AIs be explained to humans affected by them? What recourse do we have if we disagree? Will algorithms help us move forward to a better future, or will they encode and enshrine the biases of the past?

Tickets to this event are FREE.

Lensic Presents NT Live in HD: <strong><i>King Lear</strong></i>

Lensic Presents NT Live in HD: King Lear

October 1, 2018   7:00 PM

Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.

Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season. Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Please note this performance includes strobe lighting.

The Storydancer Project presents The Rumi Concert - Great River of Kindness

October 5, 2018   7:00 PM

Known for sold-out performances in Santa Fe and other US cities—most recently in Washington DC at the National Cathedral—The Rumi Concert returns to Santa Fe Friday, October 5th, 2018 at the Lensic Performing Arts Center.

The ecstatic poetry of Rumi, one of the most widely read poets in America, comes to life in a feast of poetry, music, dance, story and humor. Five unique world-class artists join in collaboration for an inspirational evening performance: acclaimed poet and translator, Coleman Barks; international Storydancer, Zuleikha; four-time Grammy Award-winners, world percussionist, Glen Velez, and cellist, Eugene Friesen; and African harp-kora musician and vocalist, Zena Carlota.

COLEMAN BARKS has translated more than a dozen volumes of the 13th century Sufi mystic Jalal’uddin Rumi’s poetry, including The Illuminated Rumi (1997) and The Essential Rumi (1995).

“Coleman Barks is a pioneer and renowned scholar on Rumi, the great Sufi. In his elegant and exquisite way, Coleman has made Rumi as popular as Shakespeare to the world and continues to inspire us with Rumi’s ecstatic poetry.” –Deepak Chopra

The Rumi Concert is presented by The Storydancer Project. Ticket proceeds are to benefit the non-profit’s work with women, girls and families facing challenging life circumstances. thestorydancerproject.org

Ticket prices: $40-125
