"Science, and its impact on the world—and on us—is an important topic that brings together great minds. WPI has a way of talking about innovation that acknowledges the social and ethical implications of any new technology. All these various perspectives converging around an important and timely topic is something that you don’t find at many other places. But it’s critical in everything we do at WPI. Therefore, critical conversations serve to expand understanding of new discoveries and uncover meaning in many dimensions- thereby igniting the spark for figuring out what’s next."
