Computer Upgrades Like You Wouldn’t Believe Are on the Menu at Science Café in the Flats

Mon 11/13 @ 7PM

Founded by the national science fraternity Sigma Xi, Science Cafes are pop science talks given in an informal, dining-out ambiance. The Music Box Supper Club is the regular workstation for this brainy talk about the cutting-edge of supercomputer technology.

The dream of IT researchers has long been a microchip paradigm above and beyond just the one/zero or on-off state. Computers could store and use tons of extra data and computing power with more than just two types of being. Come and hear CWRU Professor Emily Pentzer speaking about how chemical-based computers (mimicking our own brains — uh-oh, is that such a good idea?) may be developed for artificial intelligence — or just the ultimate gamer laptop.

Admission is free. A dinner menu from the Rusty Anchor Restaurant will be available. The talk is 7 PM but doors open at 5:30pm for those who wish to eat.
