Science On Tap at the Ore Dock

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - If you've ever wanted to learn more about solar panels, sea lampreys, or Mongolia, the Ore Dock in Marquette might be the place to go.

Each month the Northern Michigan University chapter of Sigma Xi holds "Science On Tap", a lecture about a different scientific topic.

This month's topic was deep learning and the role of artificial intelligence in our society.

It was presented by Jeffery Horn, an associate professor of computer science at NMU.

Organizers say the goal is give people knowledge of difficult topics in a relaxed environment.

"Artificial intelligence is at the forefront of everything right now. It could be used for good, it could be used for evil, and Dr. Horn is explaining really where we are," said Erich Ottem, Associate Professor of Biology.

"Science On Tap" takes place every second Thursday of the month.
