Enter the hallowed halls of the Ivy League without leaving Chicago, as Chicago Ideas—in collaboration with the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Engagement at Dartmouth—offers up an engrossing two-hour course with some of the leading minds looking at the future of intelligence. This intimate workshop will expand on topics from the previous evening's conversation, "The Future of Intelligence: Human, Machine and Extraterrestrial," so consider that your prerequisite.
This workshop offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from three of the leading minds working to gain a deeper understanding of our universe. Patricia Churchland, professor emerita at University of California, San Diego, and Jill Tarter, Bernard M. Oliver Chair at the SETI Institute, will open with a riveting presentation, followed by Dartmouth professor Marcelo Gleiser leading the class in smaller breakout groups, inviting discussion and debate from those in attendance. The program will serve as a condensed version of an interdisciplinary Ivy League class, so come ready to take notes.
*This event will take place in the Johnson Auditorium of the Adler Planetarium.
