Justice: What's The Right Thing To Do? Episode 01 "THE MORAL SIDE OF MURDER"
To register for the 2015 course, visit https://www.edx.org/course/justice-harvardx-er22-1x-0. PART ONE: THE MORAL SIDE OF MURDER If you had to choose between (1) killing one person to save the lives of five others and (2) doing nothing even though you knew that five people would die right before your eyes if you did nothing—what would you do? What would be the right thing to do? Thats the hypothetical scenario Professor Michael Sandel uses to launch his course on moral reasoning. After the majority of students votes for killing the one person in order to save the lives of five others, Sandel presents three similar moral conundrums—each one artfully designed to make the decision more difficult. As students stand up to defend their conflicting choices, it becomes clear that the assumptions behind our moral reasoning are often contradictory, and the question of what is right and what is wrong is not always black and white. PART TWO: THE CASE FOR CANNIBALISM Sandel introduces the principles of utilitarian philosopher, Jeremy Bentham, with a famous nineteenth century legal case involving a shipwrecked crew of four. After nineteen days lost at sea, the captain decides to kill the weakest amongst them, the young cabin boy, so that the rest can feed on his blood and body to survive. The case sets up a classroom debate about the moral validity of utilitarianism—and its doctrine that the right thing to do is whatever produces "the greatest good for the greatest number."

Prof. Stefan Collini - From Belles-Lettres to Eng-Lit: Criticism and its Publics
Professor Stefan Collini re-examines the history of the activity of literary criticism and discipline of English Literature. In the 250 years since the founding of the Chair of Rhetoric and Belles-Lettres at Edinburgh University, the activity of literary criticism and discipline of English Literature have had a tangled, complex and at times uneasy, even antagonistic, relationship. This lecture will re-examine this history, focussing particularly on the question of the various publics addresed by criticism, in its literary-journalistic as well as academic forms. Coming up to the present (and even the future), Stefan Collini will explore the plurality of contemporary audiences for criticism and will challenge pessimistic accounts of 'the disappearance of the reading public'. Stefan Collini is Professor of Intellectual History and English Literature at Cambridge University, and a Fellow of the British Academy. He is also a frequent contributor to The Guardian, The London Review of Books, The Times Literary Supplement, The Nation, and other publications, as well as an occasional broadcaster. In 2012, the University's English Literature department celebrates its 250th anniversary. We're marking the occasion with exhibitions, events, talks, readings and seminars throughout the year. Recorded Thursday 24 May 2012, at the George Square Lecture Theatre, Edinburgh.

Cambridge Ideas - The Music In Me
Studies at the University of Cambridge have revealed that many of us use musical taste both as a means of expressing our own identity, and to form and refine our opinions about other people. Researchers found that sample groups of subjects regularly make the same assumptions about peoples personalities, values, social class and even their ethnicity, based on their musical preferences. Rock fans, for instance, are commonly held to be rebellious and artistic, but emotionally unstable. Classical music-lovers, on the other hand, are seen as personable and intellectual, but unattractive and a bit boring. The studies have been led by Dr Jason Rentfrow, from the Universitys Department of Social and Developmental Psychology, who is conducting ongoing research into the links between personality and musical taste.His work forms the subject of this short film.

Richard Gregory - My early work at the Applied Psychology Unit in Cambridge (12/57)
The late British psychologist Richard Gregory (1923-2010) is well known for his work on perception, the psychology of seeing and his love of puns. He designed and directed the Special Senses Laboratory at Cambridge and published 'The Oxford Companion to the Mind'. [Listeners: Adam Hart-Davis and Sally Duensing] TRANSCRIPT: I stayed at Cambridge. I actually went into the what we call the APU, the Applied Psychology Unit, which was owned and run by the Medical Research Council, which is just, well, it’s on the fringe of Cambridge in Chaucer Road actually. It’s a big old country house, it had just been bought to turn into these laboratories and, in fact, there was rather an amusing story. The chap who bought it was a chap called Norman Mackworth who was actually a medical doctor who was a research worker in our department, the Department of Psychology, and he saw this house and he laid out his own money and bought this mansion assuming or hoping that the MRC would follow it up because he didn’t want to lose it. He was certain that this would make the most wonderful laboratory, it was a country house with lovely grounds, you see. It worked out, his gamble paid off. He bought the thing in one weekend, told the MRC, the Medical Research Council, that he’d bought this thing. They absolutely did their nut, as you can imagine, but finally coughed up, bought it and it’s, in fact, the biggest medical research laboratory outside London actually, and has been very successful indeed. I started there and it was a wonderful laboratory. It combined people having abstract general ideas with very, very practical problems and I think that mixture of the theoretical and the practical, well, it certainly suited me. I think it suited a lot of people very, very well. I remember I wrote a long essay about the brain as an induction machine, following really from Bertrand Russell and thinking about induction and all the rest of it and I still think these problems about how you gain knowledge by instances, generalising, then creating an hypothesis, which you then test, which go on in science is really what the brain also does. We are sort of little scientists inside our heads to a great extent. Anyway, I wrote an essay on that which went on and on but at the same time I did practical things, some quite dramatic. I spent a year working on escaping from submarines for the navy. Sir Frederick Bartlett who was my professor, wonderful man, and he was again a person I respect totally looking back on him, he seconded me to the navy for a year actually at Whale Island in Portsmouth. I used to go down in the submarine and then we did a big experiment where we changed the atmosphere, we increased the CO2, reduced the oxygen, as though one was in a stricken submarine, you see, and then we had, I designed escape gear, a replica of the 42 operations required to get out of a submarine for each man using the twill trunk system, no, sorry, using a gun tower system, where each chap had to get into a gun tower, open the lower hatch, get into it, close it, put oxygen into it, put the upper one up, then you had to drain the water out- 42 separate operations for each person actually to get out of this thing. Meanwhile you had to wait to be discovered because if you got out of the submarine when you were at the bottom of the sea, nobody knew you were there, you were going to get drowned, no point in doing it. So what they did, they sat down there waiting to hear the screws of surface ships circling because, you won’t believe this, but the sonar thing was on the bow of the submarine. The first thing that happened was that broke off if it hit the deck, you see, at the bottom of the sea, and so they lost communication. It was quite extraordinary. The only communication was listening for the screws of the surface vessel so what I was working on was how long one should wait to be discovered down there, you see, by surface ships as the oxygen gradually failed and the CO2 gradually took over your consciousness, you know. Given that it was 42 operations for each chap, I mean, and then you had about maybe 50 chaps getting out of this thing, how long could you wait to start the escape? It's quite interesting. So I worked on that.

YOW! 2016 Dr. Brian Little - Personalities at Work
Why did the normally shy and reticent member of my team do what he did last Thursday? Why did my short-tempered, brutish CEO rise to that occasion with such warmth and largesse? For the last ten months, people have been asking me if I am myself. Who else could I possibly be? Such questions are intriguing and consequential for understanding ourselves and our organizations. This presentation provides guidance for answering them based on Dr. Little’s work on free traits, personal projects and wellbeing. A central tenet of this perspective is that people often act out of character in order to advance their personal projects. Such behaviour may puzzle us, and we wonder what is going on. What is going on is both complex and deeply human. Audiences come away with some very practical examples of how they drive each other to distraction and with a clearer understanding of why it is essential to their organizations that they continue to do so. The presentation merges psychological insights with an exceptionally motivating message about respect for differences between individuals. Dr. Little’s presentations have been described by highly diverse groups as ‘utterly hilarious’ and ‘profoundly moving,’ suggesting he is a ‘cross between Robin Williams and Einstein.’ Dr. Brian Little is an internationally acclaimed scholar and speaker in the field of personality and motivational psychology. His pioneering research on how everyday personal projects and ‘free traits’ influence the course of our lives has become an important way of explaining and enhancing human flourishing. Brian received his early education in British Columbia and his PhD in Psychology from the University of California at Berkeley. Currently dividing his time between Canada and the UK, Dr. Little teaches at the University of Cambridge in the Department of Psychology and Judge Business School, and is a fellow of the Well-Being Institute. In 2015, he was also a Senior Fellow at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania and is Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. Previously, Professor Little has taught at Oxford, Harvard and McGill Universities. His course on personality in Harvard’s Department of Psychology was immensely popular: the graduating classes of Harvard elected him as a ‘Favorite Professor’ for three consecutive years. In his presentations, Dr. Little helps organizations and professionals understand the profound effect that personality has on performance, and how to use this knowledge to their advantage. Brian’s unique approach to the science of personality is the focus of his book, Me, Myself and Us which was published in October 2014 by Public Affairs Books in the USA and HarperCollins in Canada and is being translated into multiple languages.

Novel Thoughts #8: Amy Milton on Hubert Selby’s Requiem for a Dream
Dr Amy Milton from Cambridge’s Department of Psychology relates how Requiem for a Dream, Hubert Selby’s bleak portrayal of drug addiction, motivated her to dedicate her academic career to finding treatments for addiction. Here she talks about this favourite book as part of ‘Novel Thoughts’, a series exploring the literary reading habits of eight Cambridge scientists. From illustrated children’s books to Thomas Hardy, from Star Wars to Middlemarch, we find out what fiction has meant to each of the scientists and peak inside the covers of the books that have played a major role in their lives. ‘Novel Thoughts’ was inspired by research at the University of St Andrews by Dr Sarah Dillon (now a lecturer in the Faculty of English at Cambridge) who interviewed 20 scientists for the ‘What Scientists Read’ project. She found that reading fiction can help scientists to see the bigger picture and be reminded of the complex richness of human experience. Novels can show the real stories behind the science, or trigger a desire in a young reader to change lives through scientific discovery. They can open up new worlds, or encourage a different approach to familiar tasks.

My Cambridge Interview
Yet another requested video about my interview experience at Cambridge! :D Apologies for the late upload; technical issues :/ I applied to Cambridge in 2015 and got an offer for 2016 entry. I wasn't expecting to get in after my interviews in Dec 2015, because I thought it went too badly for them to consider me. I ended up being pooled, which is when they think you are suitable for Cambridge but not suitable for the college you applied to. I'm in Jesus College now and I'm extremely happy where I am! Looking back, my interview experience was actually very enjoyable. It was challenging and fun at the same time; my mind was pushed to its limit and I actually learnt something in my interviews.

Report: Cambridge University ethics panel rejected Aleksandr Kogan's Facebook study
Documents show that an ethics panel at the University of Cambridge rejected a proposed academic study on Facebook likes due to the company's "deceptive" approach to users' privacy, reports The Guardian. The study was proposed in 2015 by Aleksander Kogan, an academic in the university's Department of Psychology, who is at the center of the Facebook privacy scandal. It suggested looking at how Facebook likes are linked to "personality traits, socioeconomic status and physical environments." The psychology research ethics committee at the University of Cambridge said it found that Kogan's proposal included "worrisome" aspects, according to documents that were recently released. The panel also said the social media giant's approach to consent "falls far below the ethical expectations of the university."Aleksandr Kogan: The link between Cambridge Analytica and FacebookAccording to The Guardian, the academic investigation involved 250,000 Facebook users' personal data, and data from their 54 million friends. That data had already been obtained through a personality quiz app in a project funded by the parent company of Cambridge Analytica, SCL.  The documents about the panel's decision were reportedly released shortly before he appeared before British lawmakers on Tuesday.In a "60 Minutes" interview on Sunday, Kogan said he was "sincerely sorry" about the way he and "tens of thousands" of other app developers took advantage of what he said was Facebook's lax data policy enforcement, but he doesn't think he really did anything wrong.  Facebook has been mired in scandal since revelations that Cambridge Analytica misused personal information.

Conversation Without Words: Nicky Clayton & Clive Wilkins at TEDxOxbridge
Thinking without words is the alternative way of capturing thoughts -- a new way of thinking. This concerns the subjective experience of thinking, the use of imaginative powers to think outside the box. Nicky Clayton (@nickyclayton22) is the Professor of Comparative Cognition in the Department of Psychology at Cambridge University, and a Fellow of Clare College. She was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2010. She is also Scientist in Residence at the Rambert Dance Company. Her most recent collaboration with artist Clive Wilkins arose out of their mutual interest in imagination, and its consequences for consciousness, identity and memory. They also regularly dance tango together. Clive Wilkins is a fine artist and writer, and is currently an Artist in Residence in the Department of Psychology at Cambridge University. He has exhibited widely, including at the National Portrait Gallery, London, at the Royal Academy and in private galleries in Cork Street, London -- where he had a one man show in 2007. His work can be found in public and private collections. Clive has produced portraits of Sir Howard Hodgkin and Sir Peter Blake amongst others and has been presented publicly to HRH Princess Royal. His current project, 'Moustachio', is a novel in four parts. It explores imagination and questions aspects of consciousness and reality amidst the miasma of being. This talk was part of the "Defining Today" session at TEDxOxbridge "Timeless Ideas" in Oxford, England at the Said Business School on June 1, 2013.

Turing Lecture: Professor Jon Crowcroft, Cambridge University
Jon Crowcroft has been the Marconi Professor of Communications Systems in the Computer Laboratory since October 2001. He has worked in the area of Internet support for multimedia communications for over 30 years. Three main topics of interest have been scalable multicast routing, practical approaches to traffic management, and the design of deployable end-to-end protocols. Current active research areas are Opportunistic Communications, Social Networks, and techniques and algorithms to scale infrastructure-free mobile systems. He leans towards a “build and learn” paradigm for research. He graduated in Physics from Trinity College, University of Cambridge in 1979, gained an MSc in Computing in 1981 and PhD in 1993, both from UCL. He is a Fellow the Royal Society, a Fellow of the ACM, a Fellow of the British Computer Society, a Fellow of the IET and the Royal Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the IEEE. He likes teaching, and has published a few books based on learning materials. Research Computing Systems at scale are the basis for much of the excitement over Data Science, but there are many challenges to continue to address ever larger amounts of data, but also to provide tools and techniques implemented in robust software, that are usable by statisticians and machine learning experts without themselves having to become experts in cloud computing. This vision of distributed computing only really works for “embarrassingly parallel” scenarios. The challenge for the research community is to build systems to support more complex models and algorithms that do not so easily partition into independent chunks; and to give answers in near real-time on a given size data centre efficiently. Users want to integrate different tools (for example, R on Spark); don’t want to have to program for fault tolerance, yet as their tasks & data grow, will have to manage this; meanwhile, data science workloads don’t resemble traditional computer science batch or single-user interactive models. These systems put novel requirements on data centre networking operating systems, storage systems, databases, and programming languages and runtimes. As a communications systems researcher for 30 years, I am also interested in specific areas that involve networks, whether as technologies (the Internet, Transportation etc), or as observed phenomena (Social Media), or in abstract (graphs).

Steven Pinker - The Past, Present and Future of Violence
Steven Pinker is Johnstone Family Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. His research on language and cognition has won prizes from the National Academy of Sciences, the Royal Institution of Great Britain, the American Psychological Association, and the Cognitive Neuroscience Society. Dr. Pinker has also received several teaching awards and many prizes for his nine books, including The Language Instinct (1994), How the Mind Works (1997), The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature (2002), and The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined (2011). He has been named Humanist of the Year by the American Humanist Society, and has been listed among Foreign Policy magazine's "The World's Top 100 Public Intellectuals" and Time's "The 100 Most Influential People in the World Today." Dr. Pinker is currently Chair of the Usage Panel of the American Heritage Dictionary, and writes frequently for The New York Times, Time, The New Republic, and other publications. His most recent book is The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century (2014). ABSTRACT The Past: Contrary to the popular impression view that we are living in extraordinarily violent times, rates of violence at all scales have been in decline over the course of history. The Present: Human nature comprises faculties that encourage violence, such as dominance and revenge, but also faculties that inhibit it, such as self-control, empathy, and reason. The level of violence in a given society depends on how its norms and institutions affect the balance between them. The Future: I speculate on how some of the historical changes that reduced violence in the past might be purified and concentrated to reduce violence in the future. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This lecture was organised as part of the WHO and University of Cambridge Global Violence Reduction Conference 2014.

Top 10 Grad School Interview Questions
GradSchoolHeaven.com founder and Harvard graduate Giulio Rocca discusses the 10 most common interview questions asked by graduate schools. Web: http://www.gradschoolheaven.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/gradschoolheaven Twitter: https://twitter.com/gradheaven Abridged Transcript: Today, I'll be talking to you about the 10 most common graduate school interview questions. Some schools, particularly when applying to doctoral programs, will invite candidates to an on-campus interview. These interviews are generally frightening to candidates because there's not much in the way of guidance as to what to expect. 1. The first is to tell me more about yourself. There’s a good chance you’ll be asked this question. The most important thing that you want to do is to have a synthesized answer, no more than one or two minutes, that showcases your personal, academic, and professional accomplishments in a nutshell. In other words, a kind of preview. Don’t go on a rant, and don’t go on a tangent! 2. Second, you may be asked: why are you interested in this field? Again, go back to your personal statement and think about what you wrote in that statement and try to expand on it. Perhaps you can go deeper into some of the reason that you discussed or introduce addition reasons that were not discussed in the personal statement. in either case, try to make a compelling case as to why this particular field is what you were born to do. 3. Third, why are you interested in our school? This is almost certainly going to be asked in the interview process. Think about specific elements of the program that set it apart -- the faculty, the facilities, the curriculum, student activities, job placement record, and other reasons -- and make a compelling argument once again. 4. Fourth, what are you going to research? This is particularly relevant if you’re applying to a doctoral program, but for master’s applicants too there’s often a master’s thesis and this is something that you can mention. In answering this question, you don’t necessarily have to have a definitve answer that you’re going to be held accountable to, as much as you want to demonstrate that you’ve conducted some preliminary thinking on the subject and that you're a serious candidate for such research. 5. Fifth, think about your strengths and weaknesses; your interviewer may very well ask you to talk about them. For strengths, pick ones that are relevant to academia, for example critical thinking, quantitative abilities, qualitative abilities, research capabilities, and so forth. And with respect to weaknesses, try to pick weakness that are really weakness turning into strengths; so, for example, if you’re a soft-spoken individual you might say that your weakness is that you’re occasionally soft-spoken but that you’ve taken steps to be more assertive. 6. Sixth, you’ll probably be asked, in so many words, why they should accept you. Have a bullet-proof answer for this question. Talk about your personal, academic, and professional achievements, discuss your long-range plans and how you plan to take full advantage of the university’s resources to make them come true. You want to convince them that they’re not going to be wasting an admissions spot with you. 7. Seventh, you may be asked to discuss your career goals. If you’re applying to a doctoral program, it’s usually appropriate to discuss the probability of teaching, and if you’re applying to a master’s program you can also discuss the possibility of extending your studies in a doctoral program or professional applications. 8. Eight, you may be asked where else you’re applying. This is a very difficult question to navigate. If you answer and provide full details about all the place that you’re applying to, you may dilute your application to the university in question. On the other hand, if you’re too secretive you may alienate your interviewer. A possible middle of the road approach is to indicate that you’ve applied to a number of other universities, without being too specific, but reiterate how important it is for you to be accepted to the one that you’re talking about today. Reiterate your desire and how much you’d love to have a position in the program. 9. Ninth, you may be asked to discuss what you’ve read recently. Ideally, you should be able to cite scholarly publications, whether it’s journal articles or books published by academics that demonstrate that you’re connected with the community. 10. Tenth, you may be asked if you have any questions for the interviewer. Think about these questions carefully; you can prepare them ahead of time so you’re not nervous. Try to ask questions that either delve more deeply into the interviewer’s background and research interests or that explore aspects of the program that are not obviously stated on the web site or the marketing materials of the university.
