Showcasing the excellence and diversity of the nation’s premier research university, UCTV embraces the core missions of the University of California — teaching, research and public service — through quality, in-depth television that informs, educates and enriches the lives of people around the globe.
In this program, Jaron Lanier, Microsoft’s prime unifying scientist, discusses a piece he published in The New Yorker (“There Is No AI”) about applying data dignity ideas to artificial intelligence. Lanier argues that large-model AI can be reconceived as a social collaboration by the people who provide data to the model in the form of text, images and other modalities. This is a figure/ground inversion of the usual conception of AI as being a participant or collaborator in its own right. Explanations of model results and behaviors would then center around the relative influence of specific inputs through a provenance calculation mechanism. This formulation suggests new and different strategies for long-term economics in the context of high-performance AI, as well as more concrete approaches to many safety, fairness and alignment questions. This program is co-hosted with the UC Berkeley College of Computing, Data Science, and Society and the UC Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) Lab. The CITRIS Research Exchange delivers fresh perspectives on information technology and society from distinguished academic, industry and civic leaders.
Since humans split from their primate ancestors, their brains evolved with a larger mass relative to body weight, more cortical neurons, and distinct connectivity patterns. Human neurons mature more slowly, a trait known as neoteny, likely influencing these differences. Gene regulation, not new genes, may underlie species differences, particularly in the primate lineage. The role of these regulatory mechanisms in human neuron development remains poorly understood. This lecture explores the molecular factors affecting prolonged human neuron maturation and its implications for human development and neurodevelopmental diseases.
The science of stem cells allows us to understand our genome by comparing our own genome to that of our ancient cousins – the Neanderthal.
The motion picture William is a story about a Neanderthal living among modern humans. The director of the UC San Diego Stem Cell Program Alysson Muotri was able to visit with the creator and director, Tim Disney, to discuss the real issues explored by this fantasy.

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 53 Flight Engineer Paolo Nespoli of ESA (European Space Agency) discussed how students can aspire to be astronauts and engineers during a “Mission X” competition in-flight event Nov. 29. Mission X is an international educational challenge, focusing on fitness and nutrition that encourages students to train like an astronaut. Teams of primary school-aged students (8-12 years old) learn the principles of healthy eating and exercise, compete for points by finishing training modules, and learn about the world’s future in space and educational possibilities for their own future.
NOAA is an agency that enriches life through science. From the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor, they work to keep citizens informed of the changing environment around them.

In this episode of Science 360 we’ll learn about Big Foot…not that Big Foot. Also high performance ceramics, and polluted water in West Virginia.
Meet Dr. Karen Osborn, zoologist at the National Museum of Natural History. Karen peers into the ocean depths using a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to look for organisms. Take a visual journey with Karen 200-4000 meters down to see the life she discovers in this mid-water habitat. Visit the surprising world below the ocean’s surface, where polychaetes and other invertebrates abound. Find out how zoologists like Karen give names to the new species they find. Consider the signficance of ocean biodiversity for the systems that sustain life on Earth.
Join California State Parks Interpreter Emily and Blacksmith Doug at Petaluma Adobe State Historic Park to discover the trade of Blacksmithing!
In this final lecture on The Human Stain, Professor Hungerford argues that desire is the engine of narrative, for Roth, both at the structural level and in the very grammar of his sentences. Sex and writing are alike in their attempt to cross the boundaries between persons. Passing does not only occur racially, but is also likened to the process whereby a writer, like Roth or his proxy Nathan Zuckerman, comes to inhabit the subjectivities of other characters. One effect of these conflations–for example, Nathan standing for Faunia as he dances with Coleman–is to raise the threat of homoeroticism, which for Roth collapses difference with same-sex desire. Such stereotypes are a controversial characteristic of Roth’s fiction, which nevertheless continues to draw great admiration.
Dr. Catherine Cummins, Associate Professor in the CSULB School of Nursing, provides important tips and guidelines on staying healthy and avoiding illness in our hectic world.

The National Endowment for the Arts and the National Poetry Foundation are pleased to sponsor the Poetry Out Loud program, which encourages the nation’s youth to learn great poetry through memorization and recitation. This program, which began in Washington, D.C. and Chicago, has expanded throughout each state in the nation. Poetry Out Loud invites students to explore the dynamic aspects of slam poetry, spoken word, and theatre in high school classes. The benefits of engagement in this program are the increase in mastery of public speaking skills, student self-esteem, and understanding of literary heritage.
