Impacts and Engagement: The Intersection of Science, Technology & Society on Saturday, April 22, 2017
Description: The pressing problems of our time are scientific and social, technological and political, ethical and economic. In a rapidly evolving, technology-and-data-driven landscape, where do we turn for solutions? How do we process information? And, how do we ensure that all members of society are included — that their voices are heard and valued — in the problem-solving process?
