Lecture by Rob Semper for the Stanford University Computer Systems Colloquium (EE 380). Rob discusses the new models of public science literacy that are beginning to change the paradigm from a one-way transmission approach of lecture, publishing and journalism to one of public engagement and even debate: from public understanding to public dialog to the role of science centers as intermediary institutions between the world of science and the public, new thinking is emerging for this critical arena.
In this course, Stanford University gives 22 video lectures on the Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium. This course features weekly speakers on current research and developments in computer systems. Topics touch upon all aspects of computer science and engineering including logic design, computer organization and architecture, software engineering, computer applications, public policy, and the social, business, and financial implications of technology. Frequently the Colloquium provides the first public forum for discussion of new products, discoveries, or ideas. This playlist consists of seminar speakers recorded during the 2007-2008 academic year.
The original name of this course is: Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium (2007-2008).
