veski hosts students at Graeme Clarke Oration

19 December

veski was proud to support the 2011 Graeme Clark Oration, presented by ICT for Life Sciences in March 2011 with renowned brain scientist, Professor Terrence J. Sejnowski.

Professor Sejnowski, a pioneer in the field of computational neuroscience, explored the workings of the brain, whether we are any closer to building artificial brains, how our understanding of the brain is transforming ideas about learning and education, and the role of social robots and brain behaviour in disorders such as autism and schizophrenia.

The Graeme Clark Oration is a public event honouring the pioneering work of Professor Graeme Clark, whose research and leadership in bringing together a multi-disciplinary team in the 1970s led to the development of the world’s first multi-channel cochlear implant, or bionic ear.

veski's sponsorship included promoting the event to students and science teachers. As part of the sponsorship veski also hosted three tables at the Oration Gala Dinner. Ten of these places were provided to host students with a keen interest in science and peer nominated science teachers for their excellence in teaching and support of open-ended student investigations.

The veski innovation fellows and board members engaged the students and teachers who had the opportunity to learn about the research being undertaken by veski innovation fellows.

All enjoyed an evening of sharing scientific endeavours across the generations.
