Yay! We have a new course to offer with our The Great Courses coupon! This course is called Understanding the Science for Tomorrow: Myth and Reality. It, too, is 80% off.
This course explores the many possibilities of what our future may look like through 24 lectures by research scientist and Professor Jeffrey C. Grossman of M.I.T. Some of these areas include transportation, computing, medicine, and energy.
In-depth conversation will occur over how computing will advance from optical computing to quantum computing. Just think of the world as it was before the internet and how much it has changed. What will these new technologies cause our world to look like? What things will be possible?
Medicine will move toward nanotechnology and could help us deliver drugs to very specific parts of the body -- saving us from unwanted side effects.
Even more topics that will be covered is robotics, genetic engineering, and biofuels. Professor Grossman always takes great care to emphasize facts over fiction.
