The Stanford prison experiment was a study of the psychological effects of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. The experiment was conducted from August 14 to 20,1971 by a team of researchers led by psychology professor Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University. It was funded by a grant from the U.S. Office of Naval Research and was of interest to both the US Navy and Marine Corps in order to determine the causes of conflict between military guards and prisoners. Twenty-four students were selected out of 75 to play the prisoners and live in a mock prison in the basement of the Stanford psychology building. Roles were assigned randomly. The participants adapted to their roles well beyond what even Zimbardo himself expected, leading the "officers" to display authoritarian measures and ultimatel...
To commemorate the 25th year anniversary of the Stanford Solar Car Project, the Precourt Institute for Energy presents a documentary about the Stanford team's top-five finish in the 2013 World Solar Challenge - a grueling 2000-mile race across the Australian outback. The documentary features team members, family and industry supporters, including project sponsors Panasonic and STMicroelectronics, as well as Google and Tesla Motors. Founded in 1989, the Stanford Solar Car Project is a student-run organization fueled by its members’ passion for environmentally minded technology. The team designs, builds, and races solar-powered vehicles to compete in the World Solar Challenge, a major international event held every other year in Australia. In the 2013 World Solar Challenge, the Stanford car...
For many of the nearly one billion people living in urban slums around the world, finding a safe water supply is impossible. The Lotus Water Project is working to change that equation with a low-cost chlorination device. Unlike decades’ worth of proposed solutions before it, the affordable device would disinfect water at the point of collection, and require no behavior change from users.

This video is a good illustration of temptation and the hope in future rewards. This experiment is based on many previous and similar scientific tests.

The Stanford Prison Experiment, a dramatic simulation study of the psychology of imprisonment and one of the best known psychology experiments ever undertaken.Dr. Zimbardo takes us through the Stanford Prison Experiment, in which healthy college students are transformed into unstable prisoners and brutal prison guards within days by the power of the situation in which they found themselves.
Solar car documentary about the Stanford Solar Car Project, HD Documentary about solar electric car This documentary covers the Stanford Solar Car project as they compete the premier solar car race across the Australian Outback in the World Solar Challenge. Founded in 1989, the Stanford Solar Car Project is an entirely student-run, non-profit organization fueled by its members’ passion for environmentally sustainable technology. We provide a unique opportunity for Stanford students to gain valuable hands-on engineering and business experience while raising community awareness of clean energy vehicles. Every two years, the team designs, builds and races a solar car across the Australian Outback in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. In 2013, our team finished 4th overall and we were N...
Stanford University turned Daktronics in 2013 to upgrade their video display system at Stanford Stadium for Cardinal Football. Two main end zone displays feature 13HD technology and measure 24 feet high by 66 feet wide. A continuous 360-degree ribbon display circles the fascia of the seating area. Together these displays greatly enhance the game-day experience on "The Farm" in California.
The Stanford Prison Experiment tells the true story of a psychological research project at Stanford University in 1971. Male college students were recruited to play the roles of prisoners and prison guards. In spite of the fact that the project involved volunteers in a mock prison, researchers were amazed at how the guards quickly became abusive once given authority. The results of the experiment were so alarming that it was stopped after only one week. Directed by Kyle Patrick Alvarez and written by Tim Talbott, the film stars Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller, Olivia Thirlby, Nelsan Ellis, Ki Hong Lee, Tye Sheridan, Miles Heizer, Michael Angarano, Jack Kilmer, Nicholas Braun and Chris Sheffield. This original movie review was created by students at academic institutions affiliated with the...

This talk will describe the STAIR home assistant robot project, and several satellite projects that led to key STAIR components such as (i) robotic grasping of previously unknown objects, (ii) depth perception from a single still image, and (iii) multi-modal robotic perception. Since its birth in 1956, the AI dream has been to build systems that exhibit broad-spectrum competence and intelligence. STAIR revisits this dream, and seeks to integrate onto a single robot platform tools drawn from all areas of AI including learning, vision, navigation, manipulation, planning, and speech/NLP. This is in distinct contrast to, and also represents an attempt to reverse, the 30 year old trend of working on fragmented AI sub-fields. STAIR's goal is a useful home assistant robot, and over the long...
