2019 City Nature Challenge

The New York City Nature Challenge, hosted by Macaulay Honors College and sponsored by ConEd, is part of a global campaign to bring together nature lovers of all ages in the greenspaces of their communities to record examples of urban wildlife with smartphones.

Throughout April 26-29, public parks, preservation societies, gardens and other natural organizations around New York City’s five boroughs will host City Nature Challenge events that are open to all. Participants will be guided by Macaulay student volunteers to catalog their images using the iNaturalist smartphone app.

After observation days have ended, the iNaturalist community will help properly identify and catalog the species in a marathon tech session. and results will be publicly available.

Citizen science demonstrates that science is for everyone and can be done by anyone. Participating in scientific efforts helps to improve science literacy for all. City Nature Challenge contributes to our understanding of urban wildlife in New York City and the planet as a whole.

12/5 Event–Existential Medicine #2: Augmented Humanity

Members of the VR & AI Club have posted the following information about an event tomorrow, December 5th, at New Lab at the Brooklyn Navy Yard:

12/5 7-9p – Existential Medicine #2: Augmented Humanity – Free – New Lab, Brooklyn Navy Yard

“In part two [of Existential Medicine], we unpack Augmented Humanity and the human body as a connected device. Underscoring the importance of emotional intelligence, we ask: how can this technology build upon the most powerful humanistic attributes that differentiate us from machines? The evening will explore the future of surgical robotics, connected implants, and what augmentations mean for human performance, the body, and medicine.”
