Oliver Roeder: "The Riddler: Fantastic Puzzles from FiveThirtyEight" | Talks at Google Oliver Roeder: "The Riddler: Fantastic Puzzles from FiveThirtyEight" | Talks at Google

Oliver Roeder is a senior writer and puzzle editor at FiveThirtyEight. He holds a PhD in economics with a focus on game theory. Previously, he ran the quantitative research team at NYU’s Brennan Center for Justice. Get the book here: https://goo.gl/FFiQjq About the book, The Riddler:Fantastic Puzzles from FiveThirtyEight Logic, statistics, probability, geometry, game theory, and much more! How long will your smartphone keep you away from your family? How badly can a car salesman swindle you? Will you (yes, you) decide the election? These puzzles appear weekly on the internet in Oliver Roeder’s column, “The Riddler.” Presented by Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight, “The Riddler” attracts puzzlers of all skill levels who rush to submit their solutions online. Now, Norton is proud to present, for the first time, a collection—THE RIDDLER: Fantastic Puzzles from FiveThirtyEight [W. W. Norton & Company; October 9, 2018; $16.95 Original Paperback]—featuring the column’s most popular problems as well as never-before-published puzzles. Drawing on geometry, logic, statistics, and game theory, and containing detailed descriptions of solutions to help the reader understand the problems and learn new ways of thinking along the way, this is the perfect gift for any math or puzzle enthusiast. In his Introduction, Roeder describes an 1865 acquisition to the British Museum: a brittle and breaking scroll of papyrus discovered in Egypt in the ruins of the mortuary temple of Pharaoh Ramesses II. Curators unrolled the scroll, placed it in a glass frame, and then, despite its rough condition, deciphered and translated it. Its text begins, “The entrance into the knowledge of all existing things and all obscure secrets.” Following this text is a collection of eighty-four of the world’s oldest math puzzles. Today, we would find these puzzles simple to solve. One, for example, asks us to find the volume of a cylindrical granary of diameter 9 and height 10. But these puzzles are special. As Roeder says, they “provide some of the clearest insights into the numerical methods of the ancient Egyptians, some of the world’s earliest mathematicians.” Three millennia after the death of Ramesses II, FiveThirtyEight teamed up with Roeder to publish “The Riddler,” a weekly puzzle that’s complex and difficult—a testament to the great strides mathematics has taken in these past 3,000 years—but as immensely satisfying as the original puzzles would have been for the ancient Egyptians. “The Riddler” provides the unique opportunity for a community of enthusiasts to use basic math to make incredible discoveries in the ongoing quest for answers to everyday problems. This active set of readers submit ideas for new puzzles, and overflow Roeder’s inbox and Twitter feed with formulas, conjectures, diagrams, and videos—all proposed solutions to each week’s puzzle. The forty-nine puzzles in THE RIDDLER are divided into three sections: Logic, Probability, and Geometry. The problems, which become more difficult as the reader proceeds in each category, ask numerous mind-bending questions: Would you go to war for $1 trillion in gold? Can you rig an election…with math? Here’s $1 billion. Can you win the space race? Will this species [of microorganism] survive? Will the neurotic basketball player make his next free throw? Is the [office building] bathroom occupied? Can you win at Tetris? How much will the picky eater eat? THE RIDDLER is both fun and challenging. It’s therefore no surprise that the puzzles have even attracted the coach of the U.S. Math Olympiad team and a scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. You, too, can solve these problems using your mathematical intuition and a little bit of determination. Bestselling author and founder and editor in chief of FiveThirtyEight, Nate Silver, has written a major foreword for the book, praising the “enticingly thorny problems that resemble the ones that I and other applied statisticians encounter in the real world.” This book will help you to stretch your brain, brush up on math, and learn to think in new ways. THE RIDDLER is a smart, modern twist on the age-old puzzle book. It’s perfect for those experienced in math and novices alike.

Woodrow Hartzog: "Privacy’s Blueprint" | Talks at Google Woodrow Hartzog: "Privacy’s Blueprint" | Talks at Google
1 week ago En
Design is one of the most important but overlooked factors that determines people’s privacy. Social media apps, surveillance technologies, and the Internet of Things are all built in ways that make it hard to guard personal information. And the law says this is okay because it is up to users to protect themselves ― even when the odds are deliberately stacked against them. In this talk describing his book, "Privacy’s Blueprint," Woodrow Hartzog pushes back against this state of affairs, arguing that the law should require software and hardware makers to respect privacy in the design of their products. Current legal doctrine treats technology as though it were value-neutral: only the user decides whether it functions for good or ill. But this is not so. As Hartzog explains, popular digital tools are designed to expose people and manipulate users into disclosing personal information. Privacy gains will come from better rules for products, not users. The current model of regulating use fosters exploitation. Privacy’s Blueprint aims to correct this by developing the theoretical underpinnings of a new kind of privacy law responsive to the way people actually perceive and use digital technologies. The law can demand encryption. It can prohibit malicious interfaces that deceive users and leave them vulnerable. It can require safeguards against abuses of biometric surveillance. It can, in short, make the technology itself worthy of our trust. Get the book: https://goo.gl/hBBkmg

In the mid-1990s, facing severe cuts to its public funding, the University of Oregon—like so many colleges across the country—was desperate for cash. Luckily, the Oregon Ducks’ 1995 Rose Bowl berth caught the attention of the school’s wealthiest alumnus: Nike founder Phil Knight, who was seeking new marketing angles at the collegiate level. And so the University of Nike was born: Knight has so far donated more than half a billion dollars to the school in exchange for high-visibility branding opportunities. But as journalist Joshua Hunt shows in University of Nike, Oregon has paid dearly for the veneer of financial prosperity and athletic success that has come with this brand partnering.

Will Nitze studied neuroscience at Harvard University and became fascinated with the human brain from a physiological standpoint. He later found that most people start having difficulty focusing at work around 2:30pm, whether that be brain fog or headaches. He could not find any grab-and-go food items that were geared towards brain function and that was his ‘aha’ moment that drove him to dive into the health bar industry and in 2017 IQ Bar was born! Will came in to Google to discuss his research on the Brain-Food Connection and why we chronically eat foods that harm our most valuable organ. For instance, when we think of food, we don't think of the brain - we think of variables like emotion, cost, and bodily health. Conversely, when we think of modulators of acuity, we think of things like caffeine, pills, and sleep - not food. The reality, of course, is the food has a massive impact on brain function. These misaligned associations cause us to form misconceptions like 1) It’s “normal” to feel exhausted at 2:30pm 2) Cognitive impairment is just part of aging and 3) We’re genetically predisposed to a cognitive fate.

His strategies and creative contributions have led to the success of Budweiser’s “Made In America” music festival, the launch of Bud Light Platinum, the launch of the Brooklyn Nets (Hello Brooklyn!), and State Farm’s “Cliff Paul” campaign and even ran the digital strategy for Beyoncé (Music World Entertainment) – to name a few.

Most recently, Marcus joined the University of Michigan faculty at the Ross School of Business as a lecturer of MBA marketing and holds an MBA with an emphasis on Strategic Brand Marketing from the University of Michigan. Marcus discusses how culture connects people and commerce. Since its modern conception, marketing and advertising have relied on creativity as a catalyst for commerce. We use copy and images to evoke desired behaviors from a target populous in hopes that it will impact the brand’s bottomline. While the convergence of the two — creativity and commerce — is considered the hallmark of ‘good marketing communications’ (sought after by ad agencies and ambitious brand managers alike), there is an unspoken factor which frames it relevance and significance. That factor is ‘culture’ and this talk explores the unwritten rules about culture and why it should be the backbone of how we approach marketing in today’s hyper-connected world. Enjoy!

The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

Farrah Storr: "The Discomfort Zone" | Talks at Google Farrah Storr: "The Discomfort Zone" | Talks at Google
4 weeks ago En
Farrah Storr, editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan UK, joined us in London to discuss how discomfort is, in fact, the secret sauce to success. Her book 'The Discomfort Zone' looks at how some of history’s greatest successes have only come about through individuals stepping into their discomfort zones time and again. **About The Book** We live in a world that shrinks from discomfort. We inhabit a culture where children are routinely protected from struggle and failure, a time when our academic institutions incubate students from challenging ideas, and where we bubble wrap ourselves in an online world where we need only ever bump up against the opinions and world views that sit ‘comfortably’ with our own. But the cost of this ‘comfortable’ world is devastating, Farrah argues – killing creativity, deadening ambition and meaning a whole generation are stifled by fear. In her book, Farrah examines how discomfort – the very thing modern culture teaches us to shirk from – is, in fact, the secret sauce to success. Part memoir, part practical self-help guide The Discomfort Zone looks at how some of history’s greatest successes have only come about through individuals stepping into their discomfort zones time and again.

Arjuna Ardagh: "Radical Brilliance" | Talks at Google Arjuna Ardagh: "Radical Brilliance" | Talks at Google
4 weeks ago En
What are the physical components of brilliant, original, world-changing ideas? Based on over 420 interviews with extraordinarily brilliant leaders in science and business, Arjuna Ardagh shows us how brilliance can become more of a predictable outcome and less of an accident: when four very different kinds of focus, brain functioning, and activity co-exist. When we can move freely through these four phases of the “Brilliance Cycle” each day, each week, each year and during the life of a project, Ardagh suggests that every human being has the chance to make a unique contribution to the evolution of human life. Based on his newest book, Radical Brilliance: The Anatomy of How and Why People Have Original Life-changing Ideas, Arjuna will reveal a practical, easily applicable method for finding your own brilliance. This talk is ideal for Googlers who want to harness their own power of radical brilliance through sharing cutting-edge research into brain chemistry, nutrition, and “biohacking."

As a historian in Whitehall for over thirty years, she provided historical advice to twelve foreign secretaries under six prime ministers, from Edward Heath to Tony Blair. In this talk about her new book, "The Zinoviev Letter - The Conspiracy that Never Dies", we learn about one of the most enduring conspiracy theories in British politics: the letter, sent in 1924 and most likely a fake, was blamed to bring down the first ever UK Labour government, becoming a symbol of political dirty tricks and what we would now call fake news.

David Auerbach: "Bitwise: A Life in Code" | Talks at Google David Auerbach: "Bitwise: A Life in Code" | Talks at Google
1 month ago En
In this talk, David Auerbach reads excerpts from his new book Bitwise: A Life in Code; then does Q&A with the live audience. An exhilarating, elegant memoir and a significant polemic on how computers and algorithms shape our understanding of the world and of who we are, Bitwise is a wondrous ode to the computer lan­guages and codes that captured technologist David Auerbach’s imagination. With a philoso­pher’s sense of inquiry, Auerbach recounts his childhood spent drawing ferns with the pro­gramming language Logo on the Apple IIe, his adventures in early text-based video games, his education as an engineer, and his contribu­tions to instant messaging technology devel­oped for Microsoft and the servers powering Google’s data stores. A lifelong student of the systems that shape our lives—from the psy­chiatric taxonomy of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual to how Facebook tracks and profiles its users—Auerbach reflects on how he has experienced the algorithms that taxonomize human speech, knowledge, and behavior and that compel us to do the same. Into this exquisitely crafted, wide-ranging memoir of a life spent with code, Auerbach has woven an eye-opening and searing examina­tion of the inescapable ways in which algo­rithms have both standardized and coarsened our lives. As we engineer ever more intricate technology to translate our experiences and narrow the gap that divides us from the ma­chine, Auerbach argues, we willingly erase our nuances and our idiosyncrasies—precisely the things that make us human.
