More Than Friends hosts Nerd Nite at The Rook in OTR!
Nerd Nite kicks off 2019 at The Rook in OTR!
For those new to Nerd Nite - Nerd Nite is all about enjoying drinks together and learning a thing or two! Each month we gather at a local bar and presenters give talks on various topics. (Because every celebration of science and facts goes well with a beer or seven!)
This month, all ages are welcome!
Presentations this month include:
1. The History of Home Video and Our Media Rights presented by Tim Caldwell
Tim Caldwell takes through the evolution of home video and the questionable and, at times, controversial evolution of our rights when it comes to this medium.
2. Using Systems in Scientific Estimation presented by Davin Marro
Can we statistically predict change? What changes do we think will occur in various fields over the next 100 years? In this talk, Davin discusses how the utilization of systems and simulation data combined with new innovations in artificial intelligence can prove to be a valuable advisor in both macro-scientific estimation and medical diagnosis.
3. The Thompson Sisters: An Ode to Black Women presented by S. E. Andres of Queens of Queen City
Priscilla Jane and Clara Ann Thompson were daughters of two runaway slaves who made their way to the safety of an abolitionist in Rossmoyne, a suburb of Cincinnati. These sisters sought to strengthen the community and change the country with their powerful words. Learn how these two talents brought lessons of slavery to influence the Harlem Renaissance and civil rights from Cincinnati.
