Colloquium - Eisenberg

DLC 170

Leonardo da Vinci: Lifelong Learner and Designer
Department of Computer Science

As a center interested in the themes of lifelong learning and design, it is occasionally worthwhile for us to take the "biographical" view of our interests: what is it like for an individual to be both a great learner and designer? Probably no better exemplar ever lived than Leonardo da Vinci, a man who seemed to spend just about every day of his life imagining new objects, ideas, designs, and techniques. This will be an informal talk highlighting some of the aspects of da Vinci's life that might be provocative for researchers today; I'll also spend some time talking about the GEEN 1400 section that Ann Eisenberg and I are currently teaching focusing on the engineering work of da Vinci.

Sponsored by the Center for Lifelong Learning & Design.

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming colloquia, subscribe to our Colloquia Mailing List. If you would like to schedule a colloquium, see Colloquium Scheduling.

Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Please contact Stephanie Morris at least five days prior to the colloquium.
