Science and Society - Next Show

Dr. David Lemberg
Host - Science and Society

San Diego, CA | Posted on February 13, 2006

Dr. David Lemberg, Executive Producer of "Science and Society" announces the show schedule for Wednesday, 02/15/06, 1PM to 2PM Pacific.

Of particular interest to Nanotechnology Now readers are interviews with:

  • Dr. Douglas Arnold, Director, Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications, University of Minnesota
  • Dr. George Bekey, Gordon Marshall Professor of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering, University of Southern California
  • Dr. Joseph Moerschbaecher, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans

Dr. Arnold discusses interdisciplinary mathematics, developing cockroach-like robots, and developing numerical methods to simulate black hole collisions and gravitational radiation.

Dr. Bekey discusses the future of robots in society, human-robot cooperation and communication, and robots as partners in a variety of tasks. Also, Dr. Bekey speculates on whether the science-fiction scenarios of robot “take-overs” are possible.

Dr. Moerschbaecher discusses the current status of the LSU Health Sciences Center Campus in New Orleans; some of the important research that was underway prior to Hurricane Katrina; the challenges, including costs, to rebuilding and reopening the facilities; and the heroic efforts to return to some form of operation within 6 weeks after the storm.
