Marti Hearst: New Inventions

Available to the general public as livestream only. UC Berkeley students may attend in person with valid Cal One ID.

Marti Hearst talks about the creative side of computer science, covering topics ranging from search engines and computational linguistics to reading and data visualization. She shares examples from her research lab about how new ideas arise and lead to new inventions, and how to try to discard the many bad ideas to pursue the few good ones.

Hearst is a professor in the School of Information and the CS Division at UC Berkeley. Her extensive publications include Search User Interfaces, the first academic book on the design of search engine interfaces.
