Focused ultrasound (FUS) is a revolutionary non-invasive medical therapy. It sends harmless sound waves from outside of body to create a focal therapy point, with over 130 conditions in the body, including but not limited to oncology, neurology, neurosurgery, and more. We, at YektaSonics, are developing a novel hardware-software co-designed phased array to be used in focused ultrasound medical devices. The technology is an order of magnitude lower cost in compare to other phased arrays in the market, and it has the most optimum output signaling of pure sine or harmonic free (beneficial to the FUS community due to MRI compatibility and power efficiency to transducers). YektaSonics has received many awards and recognitions, such as being a company in residence at University of California Citris Foundry incubator, UC Big Ideas finalist, NSF I-Corps recommended team, and being invited to NSF SBIR for proposal submission.
We have a software intern position for this summer, where a strong candidate will develop our package as well as contributing to our machine operating system. The work will be done mainly in C/C++. The lab is in San Jose area and remote work can be done. Please email your resume as well as your transcript to Navid Gougol at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Navid is the CEO and founder of YektaSonics and a PhD admitted in ECE at UCSC. You can check the company website for more information at www.yektasonics.com.
Space is available for David Haussler's Scientific Principles of Life, which satisfies the Scientific Inquiry 5-course credit requirement!

We are currently seeking CS undergraduates to participate in a video game study. Our study examines how Data-Driven Retrospective Interviewing (DDRI) can help generate insightful feedback from video game players.
Eligible participants will be asked to play four levels of a programming game and then complete a 15-30 minute interview. During the interview, participants will be asked questions regarding their gameplay data. Upon completion of the play session and the interview process, participants will be compensated with a $50 gift card.
You can participate in this study if you are at least 18 years of age and able to read and speak English. You must be a registered student enrolled in an undergraduate CS program and you must have access to a Windows computer. Running Windows on a Mac or Linux machine will not suffice it must be a Windows machine.
If you meet the above criteria and you are interested in participating in this study, please submit your email here: https://forms.gle/

The advance of technology and the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in an increase of workers who are turning to working on gig platforms to make ends meet. However, working conditions on various gig platforms are poor, and workers do not receive the support they need. One of these challenges is supporting workers’ learning and career goals. The goal of our project is to understand how social learning may help gig workers transition from lower-skilled platform like Amazon Mechanical Turk to higher skilled platforms like Upwork.
Event Location: Virtual (Hackathon)
CHALLENGE: Build a connected vehicle web or mobile application to assist drivers using the FordConnect API.
ELIGIBILITY NOTE: Participants must be legal residents of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec). See full rules for details.
PRIZES: $25,000 in prizes
DEADLINE: July 16, 2021 5:00pm EDT
