Science Round Table

This discussion group is based on articles selected by the class leaders. We will focus on the social and ethical aspects of 1) pesticides and glyphosate, 2) advanced genetic techniques, 3) autonomous vehicles and 4) artificial intelligence in medical diagnoses.

Participants do not need a background in science but should be willing to read and think about the assigned articles prior to each class. Online article links will be provided so an email account and internet connectivity are necessary.
