Hi Reddit! This is Johna Leddy, president of The Electrochemical Society (ECS). I’m joined by Jeff Fergus, editor of the Society’s official meeting proceedings, ECS Transactions (ECST). Today we’d like to talk with you all about open science, our Free the Science initiative, and our new preprint server, ECSarXiv, built and hosted by the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework. **We’ll be back at…

Science AMA Series: We’re planet hunters from NASA, Google AI, and The University of Texas, Austin. Ask us anything!

Ask us about NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler space telescope’s latest discovery, which was made using machine learning from Google. Machine learning is an approach to artificial intelligence, and demonstrates new ways of analyzing Kepler data. Please post your questions here. We’ll be online from 12:00-1:30 pm PT (3:00-4:30 pm ET, 20:00-21:30 UTC), and will sign our answers. Ask us anything! * Paul Hertz, Astrophysics Division director…

Science AMA Series: I research new hardware and technology for internet communications and optical computers, I’m Daniel Blumenthal, AMA!

Hi! I’m Daniel Blumenthal, a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering specializing in optical communications and photonic integration at the University of California – Santa Barbara, Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, The Optical Society (OSA) and of the IEEE. Today’s high-speed optical communications technologies work to accelerate the way we work, live and play by connecting people and computers around the world over…

Science AMA Series: I’m Siobhán Cooke, paleontologist, professor and adventurer looking for fossil clues to inform how we preserve the...

Hi Reddit, my name is Siobhán Cooke, and I’m an anatomy professor and paleontologist at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. My research (mostly) focuses on two things: 1) The evolution and eventual extinction of the native mammals of the Caribbean region including monkeys, giant sloths, rodents, and tiny (and not so tiny) shrews. Recently, my colleagues and I published a paper demonstrating that…

Science AMA Series: I spent the last year investigating the potential of carbon-capture technology (or “clean coal”) to mitigate climate...

Under the goals of the 2015 Paris climate agreement, the world has agreed to do what is needed to keep global temperatures from not rising above 2°C as compared to pre-industrial levels. According to the International Panel on Climate Change, in every economically viable scenario to that goal requires reaching zero emissions and requires the deployment of carbon-capture technologies on large scale. These technologies allow…
