Event Announcement from @Rochester:
Scientist to Share Ideas on 'Technological Democracy' and Unleashing Innovation
William Wulf, a renowned computer scientist and former president of the National Academy of Engineering, will visit the River Campus later this week to give two talks, both of which are free and open to the public. His Thursday, Feb. 5, discussion at 3:15 p.m. will focus on the importance of technological literacy to citizenship and U.S. democracy. Friday, Feb. 6, at 12:15 p.m., Wulf will look at factors stifling innovation in the United States and offer possible solutions. Undergraduates and graduate students will also have a chance to meet with Wulf during two breakout sessions on Friday. The public talks are part of the Phi Beta Kappa Society's Visiting Scholars Program. For details, contact the Department of Computer Science at 275-5671.
The Thursday talk, which looks more interesting, conflicts with our grad class, but some undergrads might want to go.
