    Holly Downing: “Why Our Mascot is Not a Bee—The Frustrations of a BHSU Entomologist”
    To the untrained eye, bees and wasps (and some flies) can look very similar. There are, however, major differences between these two groups that include body structures, social behavior, and ecology. This talk will describe some of those differences, while also describing fascinating aspects of behavior and the ecological and economic importance of these groups. An extra perk to attending this talk: you will learn the difference between males and females. Armed with this geekish knowledge you’ll be able to wow friends and family by holding and petting these insects without fear of being stung.

    Max Marc: “Artificial Intelligence vs. Humans: Thought Experiments on the End-Game”
    Rudimentary artificial intelligence is here. That voice assistant in your phone is a type of rudimentary AI. Parole officers use a type of rudimentary AI to decide on whether to grant parole to the incarcerated. Many such examples abound. Various thought experiments have been offered for how the interaction between artificial intelligence and humans will play out. End-game scenarios range from a golden-age paradise scenario for humans, to an age where humans are inevitably disenfranchised by a higher intelligence. This talk will describe some of these thought experiments.
