Join The Takeaway host John Hockenberry for an evening of live music from One Ring Zero, drinks and conversation with two of the brightest lights in the mind-bending, down-the-rabbit hole world of codebreaking.

Tal Rabin, head of the Cryptography Research Group at the IBM T.J.Watson Research Center, dabbles in number theory, theory of algorithms, and distributed systems. But her real focus is on designing efficient and provably secure cryptographic algorithms for network security systems.

John Rinn, once named in Popular Science magazine’s “Brilliant 10,” is assistant professor of Stem Cell and Regerative Biology at Harvard University and Medical School and senior associate member of the Broad Institute. He conducts research aimed at understanding the role of long intergenic non-coding RNAs in establishing the distinct epigenetic states of adult and embryonic cells and their misregulation in diseases such as cancer. In a past life he was a professional snowboarder, and he swears the two paths are linked.

One Ring Zero is led by Michael Hearst and Joshua Camp. The band has released eight albums, including As Smart As We Are: The Author Project, featuring lyrics by Paul Auster, Margaret Atwood, Dave Eggers, and Neil Gaiman, among others; Planets, a collection of new compositions that represent the solar system and beyond; and their most recent, The Recipe Project, in which the band has taken recipes from today’s top chefs (Mario Batali, Tom Colicchio, David Chang, etc.), set them to music, and sung them word for word. One Ring Zero has performed at music venues and cultural institutions including the Whitney Museum of Art, Central Park Summer Stage, The Kennedy Center, Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre, Spring Scream in Taiwan, Era in Tokyo, New Morning in Paris, The Chicago World Music Festival, and the Fundacion Principe de Asturia in Spain. The band’s music has been featured in dance concerts, films, television, animations, fashion shows, and NPR programming including This American Life, Fresh Air, and Morning Edition.

This is the second edition of the WNYC Science Fair, a new series in The Greene Space that mixes your favorite public radio personalities with popular science, special performances and alcohol.

  1. My husband and i were absolutely thankful when Edward managed to carry out his research out of the ideas he made out of your weblog. It’s not at all simplistic just to choose to be handing out guidelines which men and women have been making money from. And now we see we have the writer to appreciate because of that. The main illustrations you made, the easy website menu, the friendships you make it possible to foster – it’s got most excellent, and it’s really facilitating our son and the family understand that content is cool, and that is quite important. Thank you for the whole lot!
