  • A Regular Person's Guide to Cybersecurity

    Ryan's Daughter

    Every year, we get new tech and new gadgets to make our lives easier. With it comes more new passwords to remember and possibly new threats to our privacy. It's easy to lose track of all the information or be overwhelmed with how it might be exposed to unintended uses. In this interactive talk and workshop, cybersecurity expert Allison Bishop will show you some basic math tricks that can help anyone think more systematically about personal cybersecurity and allow you to make more informed decisions around the tradeoffs between your personal security and technological convenience. Doors open 7pm, Event begins 7:30pm 21+ $5 RSVP and buy tix here --> https://tasteofscience.org/new-york-events/festival19-ryans2-36dls

  • Art and Medical Diagnoses (with Know Science)

    Cantina Royal

    Know Science is partnering with taste of science for the 2019 festival: Disease changes lives…and art. For centuries, art and music have reflected not only contemporary cultural and political themes but also the lives of the artists themselves. For example, medical diagnoses have shaped the way artists perceive and interact with the world, and are expressed in their art. This talk explores how a pituitary tumor, REM sleep disturbances, prosopagnosia and syphilis have ultimately had profound impacts on art and music, while explaining the science behind these diagnoses along the way. 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM 21+ $5 RSVP & buy tix here --> https://tasteofscience.org/new-york-events/festival19-knowscience-pyc3d

  • Understanding the Racial Wealth Gap

    Halyards

    How do we collect data about populations using surveys? Have you wondered how social scientists measure wealth? We will explore the challenges in determining wealth among different racial and ethnic groups and how researchers developed a unique data set to capture asset and debt information in major metropolitan areas in the U.S. Our speakers will explore the causes and consequences of persistent racial wealth disparities and policy solutions to the racial wealth gap that are now being included on the policy platforms of major Democratic presidential candidates. 21+ $5 RSVP & Buy tix Here --> https://tasteofscience.org/new-york-events/racialwealthgap

  • CRISPR: Happier, More Productive?

    KGB Bar

    Since its discovery, the CRISPR-Cas9 system has revolutionized our ability to manipulate and change the genome of almost any organism, including humans. CRISPR allows scientists to reach into cells and add or replace genes to an astonishing degree of accuracy with fewer and fewer side-effects. Join us as we speak with two scientists at the forefront of this rapidly developing technology as they help us understand how CRISPR works, what makes it so game-changing, and how the future of medicine could, or should, be changed by it. Doors open at 7pm, Event begins at 7:30pm 21+ $5 RSVP & buy tix here --> https://tasteofscience.org/new-york-events/festival19-crispr
