Michael Chorost Visit

Treat yourself this coming Friday to a fascinating talk by science writer Michael Chorost, author of Rebuilt and The World Wide Mind. His experience with a cochlear implant - a device to enable hearing in the deaf - made him reflect on the human/computer connection, which is reflected in Rebuilt and is expanded to explore how computers and creativity intersect and can enhance communities in The World Wide Mind. Get a taste of the interesting things in store at this year's Nobel Conference and enjoy a fascinating talk at 2:30, Friday Sept. 9th in Alumni Hall. For an even smaller appetizer, see this video of a talk given at the National Academy of Sciences about art, science, and computers.
