2017-04-26 Vic: Talk

This talk at Melbourne University about the brain–machine interface might be of interest to ISCAST members. (ISCAST fellow Graeme Clark was a pioneer with his bionic ear.) The field is rife with ethical, philosophical, and theological issues as the human capacity to blur the lines between body and machine increases.

2017-04-26 Vic: Film Screening

ISCAST friends might be interested in the Melbourne special screening of a film documenting the life of an extraordinary man. Hull's autobiography, Touching the Rock (1990), was described by Oliver Sacks as “Staggering. The most extraordinary, precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read. It is, to my mind, a masterpiece.”
Date: Wednesday 26th April, 6.30pm
Venue: Cinema Nova, 380 Lygon St, Carlton Vic.
Film: Notes on Blindness, with a special introduction by Jan Dale, Prof. John Hull's sister.
