DB Outreach: Virtual Talk by Laurance Doyle @ Zoom Webinar

Can Humpback Whales help us with the search for extraterrestrial intellIgence:

A Virtual Talk by Dr. Laurance Doyle

If you were not able to join the live talk recording will be available by February 8 on the following page: https://www.discoverybound.org/resources/inspiring-talks/

What:

The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) has so far only looked for technology in space.  But is there a way to tell if the message itself is intelligent?  Dr. Doyle will share some of his research into the communication system of the humpback whales with the idea of coming up with an intelligence filter for SETI.  He will also share a bit of the metaphysics behind his involvement with this research.

When:

Sunday, January 31st, 2021 at 4:00pm PST, 5:00 MST, 6:00 CST, 7:00 EST

45 min Zoom Webinar with time for Q&A following the talk.
