SETI Institute's Doug Vakoch talks about UX for ET: Engaging Extraterrestrials at Interstellar Distances

UX for ET: Engaging Extraterrestrials at Interstellar Distances - Upcoming talk by SETI Institute's Doug Vakoch

In the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), scientists listen for signals from alien civilizations living around distant stars. If they find a signal, what should we say in reply? Can we realistically hope for mutual comprehension with an independently evolved species?

Douglas Vakoch, Ph.D., is Director of Interstellar Message Composition at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California. He leads the SETI Institute's project to compose interstellar messages of the kind that may some day be sent in reply to a signal from extraterrestrials.

 

This talk is part of the UX in OUTER SPACE event:
An exciting night of talks on the weirdness and challenges of designing for user experience in orbit and beyond.

Date: Thursday, June 13, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
