The pressing problems of our time are scientific and social, technological and political, ethical and economic. In a rapidly evolving, technology-and-data-driven landscape, where do we turn for solutions? How do we process information? And, how do we ensure that all members of society are included--that their voices are heard and valued--in the problem-solving process? Come hear from three leading researchers who seek solutions through rigorous interdisciplinary collaboration, bridging innovative research with real-world implementation.
