Robot Revolution: Lecture describes how philosphers ended it before it started

February 25, 2013

Dr. John Sullins, associate professor of philosophy at Sonoma State University, will speak about "How Philosophers Ended the Robot Revolution Before it Started" in Moore Lounge of Pearsons  Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

This talk is offered with the generous support of the Mellon Foundation's Labs Across the Curriculum grant, and is organized by professors Robin Zebrowski and Steve Huss-Lederman, who are co-teaching a course on cognitive robotics using a model similar to the one in part pioneered by Sullins.

Sullins has been integrating robotics into philosophy courses for over a decade, and will share his experiences with the campus.

"He will also be talking about the idea of labs across the liberal arts curriculum, so I particularly encourage all students and faculty who have been taking part in our college's labs initiatives to attend Dr. Sullins's talk," Zebrowski says.
