On Thursday, June 24 at 7pm ET, we welcome futurist, educator and writer Bryan Alexander for a discussion of IN SILICO.
The discussion will be broadcast on Facebook Live. Come with questions to ask in the chat, or just sit back and enjoy the conversation.
A young filmmaker sets out to document a brilliant neuroscientist who has become frustrated with his field’s status quo. With time elapsing and millions of dollars on the line, IN SILICO explores an audacious 10-year quest to simulate the entire human brain on supercomputers.
Along the way, it reveals the profound beauty of tiny mistakes and bold predictions — a controversial space where scientific process meets ego, and where the lines between objectivity and ambition blur.
