SciBarCamp day 1
Just a blur. Here's some stuff that happened
I'll hopefully have a more detailed report about the conference later; suffice it to say that the first day was a roaring success. Here's some moments:
The morning sessions, held in Hart House's music room.
Proposals for talks, panels and discussions were posted upon these boards.
This was a surprise--we all poured outside to check out BlueSky's high-speed two-seater solar car.
Meanwhile, the robots were roving with little or no supervision...
While Melanie Swan and Darren Harnett (pictured), and Mark Tovey and I give an introduction to foresight studies and futurist techniques.
But there was much more, including participatory musical performances, discussions about the ethics of synthetic biology, the philosophy of the Chinese Room, brain imaging, consciousness studies, open source drug development, and a panel discussion with myself, Lee Smolin, and Robert J. Sawyer on the nature of time.
And that was just Day 1!
