Wonderfest Science Envoys are early-career researchers with special communication skills and aspirations. Following short talks on provocative modern science topics, these three Science Envoys will answer your questions with insight and enthusiasm:

UC Berkeley's Dylan Hadfield-Menell on "What AI Researchers Can Learn from King Midas" – How do we build artificially intelligence systems that reliably do what we intend?
Stanford's Therese LaRue on "The Plant's Ability to Survive" – How are plants so resilient to changes in their environments?
UC Berkeley's Thomas Mittiga on "Magnetic Micro Mysteries" – How do we use artificial atoms to achieve technological breakthroughs and to understand exotic materials?

This event is FREE. But please consider clicking on that "Tickets" link, above, to encourage nonprofit Wonderfest in its tireless work to promote the scientific outlook.
