Upcoming Talk at Bobst: Doing Science in the Open: 9/19

“Doing Science in the Open” by Michael Nielsen, Ph.D.

Monday, September 19, 2011 (please RSVP below)

6:30-7:30PM

Bobst Library, 2nd floor, AFC Avery Room

On Monday, Sept 19, the Coles Science Center and the NYU Libraries Information Futures Group present “Doing Science in the Open” by Michael Nielsen, PhD. In this talk, Dr. Nielsen will describe some leading-edge projects to show how online tools can radically change and improve science (using projects in Mathematics and Citizen Science as examples). He will talk about why these tools haven’t spread to all corners of science, and how we can change that.

Michael Nielsen is an internationally known scientist who helped pioneer the field of quantum computation. His book about open science, Reinventing Discovery, will be published by Princeton University Press in October 2011.

Refreshments will be served.
