A new speaker series featuring a diverse mix of Burlington’s top thinkers and innovators at the intersection of design and science. Created in collaboration with UVM’s Complex Systems Center, Reckless Ideas features speakers who push disciplinary boundaries with topics including autonomous robots, the spread of ideas and viruses, x-ray diffractometry analysis in pipe organs, and the Internet of things.

The robot revolution is upon us: autonomous cars are almost ready to drive our streets, and drones are almost ready to deliver packages right to our doorstep. How do we ensure that these machines are still free to make decisions as they navigate our world but not harm people in the process? Josh Bongard is the Director of the Morphology, Evolution & Computation Lab at UVM.

Produced by VCAM.
