China's Emerging Intellectual Property Edge: Challenges and Opportunities

Over the last several years, China's authorities have taken major steps to improve the Chinese intellectual property (IP) regime. Every major IP law has been amended, new specialized IP courts have been established, IP-related international agreements have been signed, and China's IP offices and litigation dockets have grown astronomically. A number of academic studies show that foreigners generally show that foreigners do well in China's emerging IP environment, including winning lawsuits and obtaining meaningful injunctive relief.

CDVS Workshop: Geospatial Data in R: Mapping

This workshop introduces the use of the R language for producing maps. We will demonstrate the advantages of a code-drive approach such as R for visualizing geospatial data. Participants will gain the skills to quickly and efficiently create a variety of map types for a website, presentation, or publication. In addition to working on hands-on coding exercises, we will also review practical guidance on designing effective maps.

Data Dialogue with Omer Ali, Nick Datto, Pei Yi Zhuo: Race and Home Values in Durham, NC: 1940-2020

We examine the relationship between race and home values in Durham, NC across two units of analysis: the address and census tract. We use historical address-level data from the 1940 full count census as well as contemporary home value data from CoreLogic, a data set of recent home sales. To study census tracts, we relied on summary data from the decennial censuses as well as the American Community Survey. We find that home values are strongly associated with the racial composition of areas.

Condensed Matter Seminar feat. Divine Kumah "Atomic-scale control of emergent phases at complex oxide interfaces"

Complex oxides exhibit a wide range of exciting physical properties including high temperature superconductivity, metal-insulating transitions, and tunable magnetic and electronic phases. The ability to reduce the dimension of these systems in thin films allows for the stabilization of novel electronic and magnetic ground states. The manipulation of these emergent properties is of great interest due to potential applications ranging from spintronics and orbitronics to photonics.

Data Dialogue with John Greaves (USPS): What do the most successful data analytics professionals do to succeed? Hint: it’s more than the technical
