Talking Tech at CMoA – Rick Spears – Bringing Up ‘Saur’ Subjects: Pixels and Paleontology

Talking Tech at CMoA is a presenter series for all ages. From 15 to 105, you will enjoy a wide array of topics in Tech happening today from industry insiders.

As a tie-in with the Talking Tech Book Club’s reading of Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton, this month’s Talking Tech speaker is Rick Spears with the Paleontological Association of Georgia.

In the early 1800s, while William Buckland described the first dinosaur specimen, Charles Babbage was dreaming up the first computer. It would be nearly 170 years until dinosaurs and computers merged in the making of “Jurassic Park.” Since then, digital technology has made great strides in the areas of fossil analysis, specimen replication, and paleo imagery.

Talking Tech begins at 3:30 PM on May 18th.  The talk is free for members or with museum admission.
