2019 Leopold Lecture with Rep. Adam Schiff

Addressing a full audience last night in Cahn Auditorium, California Rep. Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, delivered this year’s annual Leopold Lecture. He addressed modern concerns such as emerging deepfake technology, the position of the United States as a bastion of freedom, and spoke directly to the most recent actions by President Donald Trump.

Northwestern IT was on site to live stream the evening’s event in collaboration with Global Marketing and the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences.

Robotics Filming in Tech

Last week, we filmed in the new Robotics and Biosystems Center space in the new AB Fill in Tech, interviewing faculty and filming robots for a video that will announce the center led by Professor Kevin Lynch that will open this fall. One of the areas of robotics we found fascinating were the robot swarms, little car-like robots that are programmed to function as one unit to form the letters “N” and “U.”

We also filmed our own aerial footage of drones that Assistant Professor Michael Rubenstein has built with students. He will be teaching a new drone class this fall. Check back for a final video in October!
