    Faculty Speaker: Toward an Artificial Brain

    6:30pm to 7:30pm


    Harvard Ed Portal, 224 Western Ave., Allston

    David Cox, Assistant Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology and Computer Science, will explore this idea during the upcoming “Faculty Speaker: Toward an Artificial Brain.”
