I am pleased to announce that our own Alison Gopnik has been selected to deliver one of the annual Martin Meyerson Faculty Research Lecture.
This is an honor bestowed by the Academic Senate each year (except during WW I in 1919) and dates back to 1912. Each year , the Academic Senate has recognized two representatives from our distinguished faculty to share their research in a public lecture hosted by the Chancellor. This is the highest honor accorded to members of the faculty by the Academic Senate at Berkeley.
I hope you will all join to hear this terrific lecture.
Date: March 19th, 4-5pm (reception to follow)
Location: Chevron Auditorium in International House
Title: "Life History and Learning: When (and Why) Children Are Better Learners than Both Adults and A.I."
Title:, "Life History and Learning: When (and Why) Children Are Better Learners than Both Adults and A.I." will be held at Chevron Auditorium in International House from 4-5pm on March 19. The lecture is followed by a reception.

Join me in congratulating Alison and attending this lecture!
