Science@30City returns from its summer break on September 19th at 5:30 pm when Dr. Michael Walters, Assistant Professor of Physics at SUNY Plattsburgh, will present “You, Robot.”
Factories have implemented more and more automation in the manufacturing process. Car companies have working prototypes of self-driving cars. We have robotic vacuum cleaners in some of our homes. This is the cusp of the robotics revolution, but what does that mean to you and me? We will look at some of the history of robotics, where we are today, and project possible futures. Will robots usher in a utopia, or are we a few steps away from Skynet?
A free lecture series open to the public, Science@30City covers a broad range of contemporary science and technology topics that impact our community and everyday lives. Future presentations will include Dr. Don Slish who will present “The Neuroscience of Opiod Addiction” on Monday October 3rd at 5:30 pm and Dr. Kathleen Lavoie, an expert on bat conservation, will present on Monday October 17th at 5:30 pm.
