Humans vs robots: what's the latest?

Prof Dr Irini Giannopulu (Professor and Head of iCAM, iCAM, FSD Bond University)

Prof Dr Irini Giannopulu is a French Cognitive Neuroscientist recently arrived in Australia to create the interdisciplinary Centre for the Artificial Mind at Bond University. She is recognised worlwide for her expertise in human and robot interaction.

Down the quantum rabbit hole

Dr Eric Cavalcanti (ARC Future Fellow, Griffith University)
Here's one that is guaranteed to fascinate! Join us as we jump down the rabbit hole of Quantum Physics to discuss the big questions like, 'how do we know all that weird quantum stuff is actually real?' and, 'just how useful is it anyway?'

Dr Eric Cavalcanti is an ARC Future Fellow at Griffith University, where he researches the theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of quantum mechanics and quantum information theory. He is also a keen surfer!
