The next meeting of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) will hold its public session next Friday, September 18, in Washington. The meeting will run from 10 a.m. to noon Eastern time. As is customary, there will be a live webcast that you will be able to watch if you can’t catch it live.
Per the current agenda, the public session will focus on at least one study in progress and hear from the new(ish) Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Willie May.
Before hearing from the NIST Director, there are two panels scheduled where PCAST members will discuss ongoing work. One panel is on technology and the future of cities and the other focuses on hearing technologies. The second panel is not explicitly connected to a report on the agenda, but appears to be part of a larger discussion or project on technology to help people as they age.
