Advanced technologies: What are their applications and implications? That’s the central question a panel of diverse researchers from York University will address as part of the “Exploring the Frontiers of Science and Technology” panel discussion and research celebration on Jan. 28 from 2:30 to 4:30pm at the Scott Library Atrium, Keele campus.

“The ‘Exploring the Frontiers of Science and Technology’ research celebration highlights the diversity of research programming at York that push forward the exploration of technologies,” said Robert Haché, vice-president research and innovation. “The York community is invited to attend to find out more about our research strengths in this area and to engage with our researchers.”

The panel and celebration will highlight research underway by addressing the following topics:

  • Between Humans and Machines: Advanced Technologies and the History of Technological Failure;
  • Reverse Engineering the Brain: Functionally-guided Brain Stimulation;
  • Sustainable Infrastructure: Why, What, How?;
  • Becoming-There: Immersed in Computational Worlds;
  • Big Data Analytics and Assistive Technology; and
  • Power, Privacy and Precarity in the New Surveillance Era.

Students, faculty and staff are invited to the discussion, which will take place in the Scott Library Atrium. The event will feature mini research-byte presentations followed by a Q&A session with the audience.

Featured presenters include: Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies Professor Kean Birch, Lassonde School of Engineering Professor Nick Cercone, Faculty of Science Professor Edward Jones-Imhotep, Faculty of Education Professor Jennifer Jenson, Faculty of Health Professor Jennifer Steeves and School of Arts, Media, Performance & Design (Fine Arts) Professor Graham Wakefield.

Each presenter will be addressing the research question from the perspective of his or her area.
