Art of Talking Science Competition: Rise of the Machines

From the MGH Research Institute:

One of the biggest challenges that scientists face is communicating effectively to lay audiences such as donors, investors, the media and the public.

New and emerging science involving artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning has been memorably communicated by science fiction writers and filmmakers.

It has been more challenging for researchers in this rapidly developing field to explain what they are doing and how it could impact every part of our lives.

Join us for this lively, fast-paced competition hosted by the Massachusetts General Hospital Research Institute that will offer the Boston AI community a chance to present their work—in four minutes—in front of a live audience and receive feedback from a panel of expert science communicators: Carey Goldberg, WBUR; Rich Hayes, Deputy Communications Director Union of Concerned Scientists; Christine Reich, PhD, VP Exhibit Development and Conservation Museum of Science; and Ike Swetlitz, STAT reporter.

To Participate:
Interested participants should fill out our application form and MUST include a link to a one-minute, first-person video introducing themselves and their science.

This video can be shot on your phone and then uploaded to YouTube. It doesn't have to be fancy or polished, we just want to get to know you. See the video below for more details.
