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

February 25, 2013 at 11:39 pm

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.
