M6413: Showing computers how to imagine in Splash Spring 2018 (May. 05 - 06, 2018)
Machine learning using convolutional neural networks (deep learning) allows computers to recognize faces and read hand-writings. A recent break-through in deep learning called generative adversarial networks (GANs) allows computers to go beyond the simple task of image recognition and classification by creating new images based on what it has seen before, bestowing them with the gift of imagination. Come to see how this concept works, and see what computers have learned about our world!

B4962: The Secrets of Motility in Splash Spring 2016 (Apr. 09 - 10, 2016)
There are many opportunities to observe how humans walk, how birds and insects fly, and how fish swim. But have you ever wondered how bacteria gets around once they have invaded your body, how white blood cells come to your rescue and attack these bacteria, or how cancer cells spread from one organ to another and ultimately becomes deadly? Welcome to the microscopic realm of cell motility, come to this class to learn about the secrets of how organisms in the microscopic world move around!

B3330: How do cells move? in Splash! Fall 2013 (Nov. 02 - 03, 2013)
Cell migration is important for the development and maintenance of multicellular organisms. Biological processes such as embryonic development, wound healing, and immune responses all require the movement of cells in specific directions to specific locations. Come to this class to learn about the mechanisms that drive cell motility!
