Mathematics Department Public Lecture by Professor David Donoho. Professor Donoho is the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Humanities and Sciences and Professor of Statistics at Stanford University. The title of his talk is "Leaping from blackboard to bedside: medical imaging and higher-dimensional geometry”. He will discuss the big challenge of recovering information from symbols and images, and some of the mathematics behind recent advances in compressed sensing, including leveraging higher dimensional geometry in novel ways that made possible a 10-fold speed up in new magnetic resonance imaging devices.
