It's not your imagination. A new report from researchers at UC Berkeley says web trackers have stepped up their efforts to follow you, and they show no signs of slowing down.
Carat has been developed by a team of scientists from the UC Berkeley electrical engineering and computer science department's Algorithms, Machines, and People Laboratory (AMP Lab).
Interested in programming? Some students at UC Berkeley will soon have the chance to view Twitter from an insider's perspective.
UC Berkeley gained press exposure through their decision to use Google Apps over Office 365. But do universities even need email systems?
UC Berkeley is planning to make Google Apps for Education their new campus calendar and email system, having compared Google and Office 365 using their 'Assessment Matrix'.
Researchers at UC Berkeley have turned a benign virus called M13 into an engineering tool for assembling materials that mimic collagen, one of nature's building blocks. The process they developed could eventually be used to create bone, skin, and corneas.
UC Berkeley's Renewable and Appropriate Energy Lab has developed a calculator that measures your carbon footprint and how you stack up against your neighbors.
Researchers at UC Berkeley and Stanford University have developed an unmanned aerial vehicle using Kinect, Microsoft's Xbox sensor technology.
At a talk in front of students at UC Berkeley, Microsoft Chairman and philanthropist Bill Gates discusses the world issues he plans to work on during the next 20 years.
At a talk in front of students at UC Berkeley, Microsoft Chairman and philanthropist Bill Gates discusses the world issues he plans to work on during the next 20 years. He says his priorities are in developing vaccines for disease and improving health care for the poor.
Commercial office buildings are one of the main culprits of the current climate crisis. They consume large amounts of electricity and release excessive carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Adura Technologies has developed a mesh-based lighting system that is reducing costs and consumption inside buildings. The technology consists of wireless radios that plug into florescent light fixtures giving employees more control over their personal lighting space. Adura has also created a dual motion sensing-personal control system that is being used at UC Berkeley that allows students to break the hard-wired connection and control their lighting from their desktop PCs.
Researchers from Microsoft and UC Berkeley have developed an interactive table called "Pictionaire" that extends surface computing to support collaborative design teams.
Graduate students in the bioengineering lab at UC Berkeley have discovered a way to turn an ordinary cellphone in a microscope. The Cellscope can capture, organize and transmit images of blood cells, lesions and infections taken anywhere in world - a great advance for the developing world and medical imaging.
Joint competition by Intel and UC Berkeley uncovers green-tech university research and development.
Among the top challenges facing the commercialization of nanotechnology, is to produce a high volume of nano-scale components cheaply and efficiently. To help meet the challenge, UC Berkeley researchers are reporting the development of a "NanoPen" that could provide a quick, convenient way of laying down patterns of nanoparticles — from wires to circuits — for making tiny electronic devices, medical diagnostic tests, and other much-anticipated nanotech applications.
A conference at UC Berkeley tomorrow takes a hard look at the Google Books deal. Speakers will address privacy, information quality and public access issues. If Google is going to become the online library of the world, they will have to do better in all these areas.
A coalition of privacy and civil liberties groups are saying that Google Books could become "one-stop shopping" for law enforcement to track people's reading habits. The ACLU of Northern California, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Samuelson law clinic at UC Berkeley sent a letter to Google CEO Eric Schmidt demanding privacy safeguards to the product.
How does solar conversion work now and how do we want it to work in the future? Paul Altivisatos, interim director for Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory at UC Berkeley, explains how a solar cell works and how the solar energy of the future, via a solar fuel generator that converts energy the same way plants do, can become more efficient.

Paul Altivisatos, interim director for Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory at UC Berkeley, explains how a solar cell works and how the solar energy of the future, via a solar fuel generator that converts energy the same way plants do, can become more efficient. He says that rather than looking for what's next, he looks to the end result--an ideal usage for materials.
