University of Wisconsin–Madison

2021 Keynote

Emerging technologies like AI, CRISPR, or neurological chimeras increasingly raise questions about the ethical and moral boundaries of science. As a result, universities are faced with the need to not just communicate about the scientific aspects of the work we do, but also about the societal, political, and regulatory implications of emerging science.

Dietram A. Scheufele is the Taylor-Bascom Chair in Science Communication and Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor here at Wisconsin, and a Distinguished Research Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center.
