Learn about translating the language of whales, mapping the genome of phytoplankton with neuroscientists, and creating public art from environmental data at Spaulding Marine Center this Saturday.

From 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the program will include a wide array of talent:

  • Peter Molnar, founder and expedition leader of The Ocean Genome Atlas Project, will speak about his expeditions with neuroscientists and biologists who believe phytoplankton have a lot of teach us about our neural networks, longevity, biodiversity, and evolution. By using AI, scientists, researchers and engineers are working to decode the language of animals, particularly whales.
  • Interdisciplinary artist Adrien Segal will discuss her process of creating large scale art from environmental data.
  • There will also be a delightful seafood dinner (with vegan and gluten free options available) based on the new cookbook, Forage. Gather. Feast. by Van Damme Dock resident Maria Finn. You can buy tickets and find more information here.
