Tomorrow, I’m heading to Pittsburgh, PA, to prep for another Discover Magazine roundtable discussion. This time, the topic is on the future of the machine: How will robots transform industry, health care, and warfare? And will they ever be our equals? This is part of a multi-year series of Discover panel discussions sponsored by the National Science Foundation and hosted by a number of awesome institutions including: The Franklin Institute, CalTech, The Exploratorium, and Capitol Hill. This year, we’ve got Carnegie Mellon University, the South-by-Southwest Festival/Austin (see Discover’s abstract here!) and a yet-to-be finalized host.
Here’s some more information on Thursday’s event at Carnegie Mellon University:
Date: January 28th, 7pm.
Rodney Brooks, MIT
Javier Movellan, UC San Diego
Robin Murphy, Texas A&M University
Red Whittaker, Carnegie Mellon University
Hosted by Discover Magazine‘s editor in chief, Corey Powell.
I’ll post highlights here!
