  3. The Carsey-Wolf center, UCSB Summer Sessions and "The Blue Horizons" Program was proud to present this Q&A with cameraman/editor Mark Romanov from the film "The Dark Side of the Ocean". The discussion was moderated by Richard Hutton, who is the Executive Director, Center for Environmental Communication and Education, UCSB.

    "The Dark Side of the Ocean" follows Marine biologist and cameraman Rick Rosenthal who has been filming in the ocean for decades. One spectacle has eluded him and every other filmmaker, until now – the vast “vertical migration” – when billions of animals rise from the depths to the ocean’s surface. It is the greatest migration on earth, and this astonishing event happens every night, in every ocean of the world.

    Limited camera and lighting technology have previously prevented the filming of this dramatic ocean event. Now, for the first time, Rosenthal captures it on camera. To do so, he faces—head on—the dangers and challenges of filming in the open ocean, in the dark. When he is successful, he unlocks the secrets of a bizarre and alien world.

    This event was co-sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center and UCSB Summer Sessions.

  4. "Spacetime Versus the Quantum"

    Dr. Polchinski talked about the search for a unified theory of the laws of physics including quantum mechanics, which governs the very small, and general relativity, which governs the very large. Stephen Hawking showed 40 years ago that these theories make conflicting predictions near black holes. This ignited a battle that continues to this day: either quantum mechanics must break down, or our understanding of spacetime must be wrong. The latest is the `firewall’ paradox: if quantum mechanics is to be saved, then an astronaut falling into a black hole will have an experience very different from what Einstein’s theory predicts. This has led to many new ideas that may lead to the unification of these two great theories.

    SPEAKER BIO

    Joseph Polchinski (Joe) received his BS in Physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1975, and his PhD in Physics from UC Berkeley in 1980. After two-year stints as a research associate at the Stanford Linear Accelerator (SLAC) and at Harvard, he joined the faculty at the University of Texas at Austin in 1984. He moved to UC Santa Barbara in 1992, where he is a Professor of Physics and a Permanent Member of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics.

    This event was co-sponsored by UCSB Summer Sessions, the Carsey-Wolf Center, and the Alumni Association.

  5. In this information-rich age when voluminous amounts of data are being generated, processed, and transformed at ever increasing rates, how does one master control, working with these data as if it were intuitive and second nature? Can one master control much in the same way that a composer or musician creates or performs a composition, with intuitive precision? And if so, could one design a computational framework that could support this creative process, allowing researchers of different fields to work with their data as artists do?

    SPEAKER BIO

    Dr. JoAnn Kuchera-Morin, Director and Chief Scientist of the AlloSphere Research Facility (allosphere.ucsb.edu), Professor of Media Arts and Technology and Music. Her research focuses on creative computational systems, multi-modal media systems content and facilities design. Her years of experience in digital media research led to the creation of a multi-million dollar sponsored research program for the University of California—the Digital Media Innovation Program. She was Chief Scientist of the Program from 1998 to 2003. The culmination of Professor Kuchera-Morin’s creativity and research is the AlloSphere, a 30-foot diameter, 3-story high metal sphere inside an echo-free cube, designed for immersive, interactive scientific and artistic investigation of multi-dimensional data sets.

    This event was co-sponsored by UCSB Summer Sessions, the Carsey-Wolf Center, and the Alumni Association.
