The Kimball Smith Series–co-founded by Talia Weiss, graduate student in physics and member of Yale’s Wright Lab, and Ellie Singer, undergraduate student in political science–is a new event series that tackles issues at the intersection of science, technology, ethics, and global affairs; ranging from nuclear weapons risks to artificial intelligence policy.
Kimball Smith events promote cross-disciplinary conversations and connections. Each event features:
- A speaker panel, with experts in scientific and political aspects of the event topic.
- Multidisciplinary, small-group discussions among attendees.
This program honors Alice Kimball Smith, PhD ‘36, a historian of the post-WWII Scientists’ Movement.
The first event is on November 30, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. on AI Ethics on the Global Stage.
