Connections: Neal Conan; Lecture on Robots

Sep 23, 2014

We open the hour with a conversation with Neal Conan. Conan is coming to Rochester on Sunday alongside Ken Rudin for their Political Junkie traveling roadshow. We'll talk about his plans for the show, we'll touch on politics, and we'll find out what the popular "Talk of the Nation" host is doing now.  Later, we welcome RIT's Chip Sheffield, who serves as the Fram Chair in Applied Critical Thinking. We'll also talk to Genevieve Bell of Intel Corporation, who is visiting RIT today. Bell is lecturing on the theme, "Making Life: A Prehistory of Robots and Its Importance for Metacognition, Society, and the Biopolitical Future."
