Science Progressive Community - sharing visibility

Progressive Community logo.

The community of people active in science progressive topics mostly consists of a large number of individuals and small teams who struggle for visibility. As science advocates, Science for Progress wants to help giving these activities a larger audience.

This is why we offer this platform to people of the community! You will find event announcements, introductions, and opinion pieces on diverse science progressivist topics!

Episode 53 is out! "A Neuroscientist’s View on Artificial Intelligence"

https://www.scienceforprogress.eu/53-a-neuroscientists-view-on-artificial-intelligence/

One of my favorite topics is artificial intelligence, or – more specifically – what we can learn from neuroscience about artificial intelligence. So, when I was gifted the book “Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” by Max Tegmark I enjoyed the read thoroughly. But, several scenarios envisioned in the book as paths to human-like artificial intelligence didn’t make sense to me, as a neuroscientist. So a bestseller book on artificial intelligence completely ignored the views of neuroscience.

This is why invited Dr. Grace Lindsay, host of the podcast “Unsupervised Thinking” about computational neuroscience and artificial intelligence. Grace is a postdoc at University College London, and she is currently writing a popular book about computational neuroscience.

SciComm as Career Development Tool - Dmitry Kopelyanskiy Dmitry - Science speaker

https://www.scienceforprogress.eu/48-scicomm-as-career-development-tool-dmitry-kopelyanskiy/

For this episode, Dennis talked to Dmitry Kopelyanskiy, a contest-winning science communicator who gives entertaining science talks on stage – mostly about his own research on tropical diseases. But here, Dmitry also talks about his academic career odyssey (from Russia to Switzerland via Israel and Germany), his path to science communication, and his involvement in “Skills for Scientists” – a career development program at the University of Lausanne.

Survivorship bias: the planes that made it back in WW2 weren't hit in vital places.

The people who 'made it' in academia (or elsewhere) didn't face what causes people to leave.

Learn from those who left. https://t.co/VuiIvNNjRP

When I think about the things that lead to people leaving academia I think about this image. It shows where the bullet holes were on planes that came back during WW2. The question is: Where do you put the armor? https://t.co/wkahduFTaE
