The achievements have been extraordinary: we have the Web, Google and GPS - but we also have viruses, spam and cybercrime. What can we learn from past triumphs and disasters to help us decide about Big Data, driverless cars, artificial intelligence and life in silico?

  • The Archaeology of Disease Documented in Skeletons - Professor Charlotte Roberts

    What can a skeleton tell us about disease? http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-archaeology-of-disease-documented-in-skeletons Disease affects us all during our lives. This lecture will show how archaeological skeletons can inform our understanding of people's health in the past.

But well before the baryons were created, the universe began from virtually nothing. There was empty space, and time, but no more. Yet within instants, thanks to the occurrence of quantum fluctuations, it attained its huge size, homogeneity and isotropy. The universe is enormous, it is relatively uniform when we smooth over the galaxies, and it looks the same in all directions. More remarkably, during this enormous inflation of space, the universe very early on developed the seeds from which all ...

That there are infinitely many prime numbers or that four colours suffice to colour any map so that adjacent regions are differently coloured are statements which have been rigorously proved so that there can be no doubt about their truth. Mathematics, uniquely amongst human activities, is grounded on absolute truth, or so it has seemed to generations of mathematicians. But what happens when there appears to be contradictions in the logic on which mathematics is based? This lecture will explore paradoxes which cast doubt on logic itself.

  • The Great Pox: The History of Syphilis - Professor Sir Richard J. Evans FBA

    The sexually transmitted disease syphilis is generally thought to have been imported into Europe from the Americas in the late fifteenth century as part of the 'Columban exchange', in which other diseases, notably smallpox, travelled in the other direction, with terrible consequences for Native American society. It spread rapidly through Europe, spread above all by armies moving across the continent in the many wars of the time. Painters from Dürer to Rembrandt represented the ravage it wrought, while the threat it posed gave rise to numerous treatments in literature and drama (notably Ibsen' Ghosts) and strongly affected attitudes to sexuality and prostitution, both explored in this lecture. It remained common well into the twentieth century and still kills millions worldwide every year; ...

These are deep questions that have fascinated philosophers from David Hume to Karl Popper, and continue to be at the core of scientific reasoning.

Modern philosophers of science have moved on beyond the notion of falsifiability. They refer to the old school who believed in empirical testing of scientific theories as the Popperazzi. Now one applies statistical inference, pioneered by Reverend Thomas Bayes in the 19th century, to infer the likelihood that a theory is correct. Philosophers argue that while one can never prove that a theory of the universe is correct, one can increase the level confidence in the theory even without any empirical tests, if the theory satisfies certain conditions that I will explain. In this way one can provide non-empirical support for string theory and even the theory of the multiverse.

On the 200th anniversary of the battle, Professor Sir Richard Evans discusses the Battle of Waterloo, and places it in its historical context with proper credit given to the Prussian General Blucher: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/waterloo-causes-courses-and-consequences The Battle of Waterloo was fought on 18th June 1815. The 200th anniversary has prompted widespread commemoration. But what was the battle about? Who fought it? Why did it take place in 1815 and at Waterloo? Finally, what were its consequences? The answers to these questions are by no means as simple or straightforward as they seem, and will be explored in this illustrated lecture. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/waterloo-causes-courses-and-consequences Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

Visit https://weedmaps.com/dispensaries/cannabis-nation-2#/ for up-to-date menu information, deals and reviews. Cannabis Nation in Gresham is a medical and recreational marijuana dispensary licensed under the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) serving to patients, caregivers, and recreational users 21 years of age and older. Our address is 1500 NE Division St. Gresham, OR 97030. We have a large parking lot with plenty of regular as well as handicap spaces directly in front of our shop. Right now, Cannabis Nation is a cash-only dispensary but we do have ATMs located in close proximity of our building. While other dispensaries hide their flower behind a counter, at Cannabis Nation we believe in having our products front and center for our customers to easily inspect themselves. With this in mind, we have a convenient open layout system to display our beautiful buds. We have our Indicas, Sativas and hybrids in display jars with a magnifying lens so you can inspect our flower up close at your own discretion. Need a little more guidance? We have people on floor to assist you with any questions you may have and to help you find the right product that works best for you. Our grams are capped out at $15 (tax included). Yup, you read that right, $15 for a gram of primo top-shelf ganja! Needless to say, our prices are highly competitive. One of our favorite strains here at Cannabis Nation is Headband! Now you may have had headband before—it is, alongside Sour Diesel and OG Kush, one of the essential cannabis strains—but trust me when I tell you that you’ve never had it like this before! Our headband’s beautifully formed nugs have calyxes gleaming with so many crystals you’ll feel like you’re looking at a jewelry store display case. Lab tested to contain 25.70% THC and .57% CBD, this sativa packs a powerful progressive high. You’ll feel it between your eyes; the sensation is akin to a headband gradually tightening around your forehead (hence the namesake). But Headband is just one of many quality strains we carry. We have a wide selection that rivals any other dispensary in the industry! Our customers love us and we are proud to carry a perfect 5-star rating from our wonderful Weedmaps reviewers! In her review, user avrilstash writes, “Every time I'm here it's great, the people know my name, what I like and make great suggestions. Definitely my favorite shop!” But don’t take her word for it, make sure you stop by Cannabis Nation soon where our knowledgeable and friendly staff are waiting to make sure you have the best possible dispensary experience at an affordable price!

The Sun is a second generation star, Professor Silk discusses what we can learn from its ancestors: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-first-stars Eddington once famously said that a physicist on a cloud-bound planet could predict that there are stars. The first series of lectures will be devoted to fundamental questions that have simple answers. What is a star? What is a galaxy? All devolves around knowing their masses. Why should a star like the sun weigh in at two billion trillion trillion tonnes? No more, no less. And all other stars, countless in number, are between a tenth of a hundred times the mass of the sun. This leads us into a description of the first stars in the universe.

The essence of life as we know it was produced in the first three minutes after the beginning of the universe. http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-first-three-minutes-of-creation By this, I mean the stuff that we and the Earth are made of, particles of matter that we call baryons. But well before the baryons were created, the universe began from virtually nothing. There was empty space, and time, but no more. Yet within instants, thanks to the occurrence of quantum fluctuations, it attained its huge size, homogeneity and isotropy. The universe is enormous, it is relatively uniform when we smooth over the galaxies, and it looks the same in all directions. More remarkably, during this enormous inflation of space, the universe very early on developed the seeds from which all structure eventually formed.

Professor Tony Mann guarantees that you will be surprised by this talk!: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/this-lecture-will-surprise-you-when-logic-is-illogical Mathematics offers certainty. That there are infinitely many prime numbers or that four colours suffice to colour any map so that adjacent regions are differently coloured are statements which have been rigorously proved so that there can be no doubt about their truth. Mathematics, uniquely amongst human activities, is grounded on absolute truth, or so it has seemed to generations of mathematicians. But what happens when there appears to be contradictions in the logic on which mathematics is based? This lecture will explore paradoxes which cast doubt on logic itself. I guarantee that you will be surprised!

The sexually transmitted disease syphilis is generally thought to have been imported into Europe from the Americas in the late fifteenth century as part of the 'Columban exchange', in which other diseases, notably smallpox, travelled in the other direction, with terrible consequences for Native American society. It spread rapidly through Europe, spread above all by armies moving across the continent in the many wars of the time. Painters from Dürer to Rembrandt represented the ravage it wrought, while the threat it posed gave rise to numerous treatments in literature and drama (notably Ibsen' Ghosts) and strongly affected attitudes to sexuality and prostitution, both explored in this lecture. It remained common well into the twentieth century and still kills millions worldwide every year; reasonably effective treatment only became possible just before the First World War, and the search for a complete cure led to dangerous medical experiments on involuntary human subjects later in the twentieth century, raising major issues of medical ethics.
