Engineering & Science Discussion Group

Mail Address

The aim of the group is to investigate and discuss in a relaxed environment, Engineering, Science & Technology topics, both natural and man-made, often with a topical relevance.

Are you interested in exploring the science and engineering that underpins our understanding of the man-made and natural world?

Would you like to join a group who are interested in discussing and understanding more of the scientific and technical world?

Topics for Discussion could be in engineering, science, biology, medicine, astronomy, physics, etc.

The range of topics and format of the meetings will be determined by members.

Initial meetings to be held at a members house at 2:00 pm on the 4th Wednesday of the month.

Engineering; Check out this link for entertainment

 Engineering is Awesome

Science; Check out this quantum physics lecture, but beware it may cause brain damage.

"If you can explain this using common sense and logic, do let me know, because there is a Nobel Prize for you.."


Forthcoming Events -

Wednesday, 24 January 2018 - Meeting 2.00pm - Dennis's home

Due to unavoidable circumstances Ken's talk on gas turbine blades will have to be postponed until February.

As Artificial Intelligence(AI) is becoming a major topic for 2018 it is felt that we could expand the discussion for the whole session, and encompassing various aspects of the subject. Loosely defined in the early 1950s AI was to find how to make machines solve the kinds of problems then reserved for humans. Structured under four main areas; Perception, Learning, Reasoning and Natural Language, things have changed significantly in recent years. Challenges that were once considered unachievable are now common place such as; Computer vision, Speech & Dialogue, Language Translation, Decision & Plans and Robotics. 

Suggestions on specific aspects  are welcomed, and I will try to find relevant material to support the discussion.
