The fifth Workshop on Local Algorithms (WOLA’21) took place earlier this month, and the recordings of the invited talks are now available on YouTube. If you missed the workshop, or want to refresh your memory, here are the recordings (ordered by the workshop schedule):
- James Aspnes (Yale) on Population Protocols
- Uri Stemmer (Ben-Gurion University) on The Local Model of Differential Privacy: A Survey
- Mary Wootters (Stanford University) on Lifted Codes and Disjoint Repair Groups
- Christian Sohler (University of Cologne) on Property Testing in Planar Graphs
- Elaine Shi (Carnegie Mellon University) on Game-Theoretically Secure Protocols Inspired by Blockchains
- Jelani Nelson (UC Berkeley) on Optimal bounds for approximate counting
Thanks again to the speakers and organizers, and looking forward to WOLA’22!
Thank you for posting this! I note that the videos are set to “make for kids” mode. If possible, could this setting be disabled?
Being set as made for kids adversely impacts the ways in which researchers can use the material. Specifically, you cannot add the recordings to playlists (For example, a playlist to watch later or to categorize talks for personal reference). Additionally, the miniplayer and PIP mode are disabled making it impossible to take notes alongside the recordings on mobile.
Google’s advice wrt kids mode (https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/9528076#zippy=%2Chow-do-i-know-if-i-should-set-my-content-as-not-made-for-kids) says that “General audience content is content that could appeal to everyone, but isn’t intended specifically for children, or content that is intended for a teen or older audience. General audience content should be set as ‘Not Made for Kids’.” I believe that applies here.
Thanks for posting the recordings!
Thanks for pointing that out! I’ve forwarded your comment to the organizers of this edition of the workshop, to see if they can change that setting.
