Scientific Proofs is back with new topics, a new day, and a new venue for 2017!
First up: Are you ready for the rise of the robots?
The Kentucky Science Center science-for-adults program, Scientific Proofs, has been given a serious upgrade. Now held at Mellow Mushroom every month, adding great atmosphere, great food, and drink specials for all! The ingredients are simple: a relevant science topic, an expert in the field, you and a bunch of other people who like to geek out on science.
The 2017 series starts with a “risk analysis” on General Artificial Intelligence (i.e.: how many ways a technical breakthrough could lead to dangerous AI.)
The KY MULTISCALE MANUFACTURING team facilitated a visit for the second half of the presentation. Researchers from the Next Generation Systems Group headed by Prof. Dan Popa Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UofL made an appearance bringing one of their robots. http://www.ece.louisville.edu/ngs/
