Marti Hearst will talk about the creative side of computer science, covering topics ranging from search engines to computational linguistics to reading to data visualization. She will share 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.
