Basingstoke IVC Science and Climate Group invite you to this free Royal Institution talk titled "Virtual worlds and the problems of philosophy"

ADVANCE BOOKING IS REQUIRED FOR THIS TALK.

Please register for the event via this link: 

https://www.rigb.org/whats-on/events-2022/january/public-virtual-worlds-and-the-problems-of-philosophy

The RI will have the replay of the video available for 72 hours after the event for those of you that can’t make the date. It will also be uploaded to YouTube in the future.

This is a livestream event where the speakers and audience come together online. 

SUMMARY:

In the coming decades, the technology that enables virtual and augmented reality will improve beyond recognition. Can we live a meaningful life in a virtual reality?

Join world-renowned philosopher David J Chalmers and discover why virtual worlds are not second-class worlds. Using cutting-edge technology to provide invigorating new answers to age-old questions, David makes the radical argument that virtual reality is genuine reality.

In this talk David will draw on examples from pop culture, literature and film that help bring philosophical issues to life. This will be a mind-bending journey through virtual worlds, illuminating the nature of reality and our place within it.

This event is particularly suitable for ages 13+

SPEAKER:

David J Chalmers is a philosopher at New York University. Officially he is University Professor of Philosophy and Neural Science and co-director of the Center for Mind, Brain, and Consciousness. He is also Honorary Professor of Philosophy at the Australian National University and co-director of the PhilPapers Foundation.

David is interested in the philosophy of mind (especially consciousness) and the foundations of cognitive science, as well the philosophy of language, metaphysics and epistemology, and many other areas.

David's latest book, 'Reality+: Virtual Worlds and the Problems of Philosophy' is availbale from Amazon and all good bookshops.

Basingstoke IVC Science and Climate Group invite you to this free Royal Institution talk titled "IceCube: the coolest way to detect neutrinos"

ADVANCE BOOKING IS REQUIRED FOR THIS TALK.

Please register for the event via this link: 

https://www.rigb.org/whats-on/events-2022/january/public-icecube-the-coolest-way-to-detect-neutrinos

The RI will have the replay of the video available for 72 hours after the event for those of you that can’t make the date. It will also be uploaded to YouTube in the future.

This is a livestream event where the speakers and audience come together online. 

SUMMARY:

The aptly named IceCube collaboration, a huge telescope buried in the crystal clear ice of Antarctica, has been running for 10 years. It’s there to detect neutrinos, an almost undetectable particle.

Join Jenni Adams as she discusses how these neutrinos could be the key to finding some of the highest energy sources in the Universe, some a million times more energetic then our sun.

In this talk, Jenni explores how neutrinos are cosmic messengers that can travel through the Universe. Why they barely interact with anything they pass through and the precise instruments and machinery required to detect them.

This event is particularly suitable for ages 13+

SPEAKER:

Jenni Adams research is in the areas of astroparticle physics and cosmology. Astroparticle physics involves research at the interface of astronomy and particle physics. It is a synergy which operates in both directions; particle physics is applied to better understand astrophysical objects as well as using the Universe as a laboratory for high-energy physics. Jenni's interests are in both theoretical and observational aspects.

Recent theoretical work has focussed on the oscillations of neutrinos escaping from supernovae, probing AGN models using gamma ray observations and supersymmetric dark matter models.
Jenni's group at the University of Canterbury are members of the IceCube collaboration which operates the IceCube neutrino observatory at the South Pole. The collaboration has achieved a series of break-through results discovering astrophysical neutrinos in 2013 and identifying the first source of these neutrinos in 2017.
