Harvard’s popular Science & Cooking lecture series will return on September 8, bringing world-class chefs and eminent food experts to campus for weekly talks and demonstrations that are open to the public.
Most of the guests and topics this year will be entirely new, as the series welcomes for the first time the internationally renowned chefs Dominique Crenn and Daniel Humm, among many others.
Hosted by the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), the public lecture series runs through the end of the fall semester. A full schedule, including the lecture topics, is available online: Science & Cooking lecture series returns to Harvard on September 8
Just as trillions of individual cells can assemble into an intelligent organism, or a thousand starlings can form a great flowing murmuration across the sky, these Kilobots demonstrate how complexity can arise from very simple behaviors performed en masse (see video). To computer scientists, they also represent a significant milestone in the development of collective artificial intelligence. Read about the first self-organizing thousand-robot swarm.
