Celebrate Sydney Science Festival & National Science Week at the Library with talks by Prof. Annabelle McIver, Rokiah Alford and David Bishop.

Join us in celebrating Sydney Science Festival & National Science Week at the Library with talks by three experts in their field.

Socially responsible technology

Join Professor Annabelle McIver whose technology research at Macquarie University addresses such questions as: “what does it mean for your data to be secret?” and “what does it mean for an algorithm to be fair?”

Tiny tools for a tiny tradie

PhD candidate at UNSW Sydney, Rokiah Alford will talk about the saws, bricks, cement and delivery trucks of the nano-world, as well as her own addition to the toolbox.

 Algae & Motor Neurone Disease

The rate of motor neurone disease in Griffith NSW is approximately seven times the national average, and has been linked to a molecule produced by blue-green algae. Join David Bishop from UTS, and learn how new methods of identifying this molecule has led to its detection in a number of waterways in NSW.
