Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times technology journalist Matt Richtel comes to Davis! Learn about the latest science behind distracted driving and the possible solutions that can protect your teens and yourselves!
Why are phones so compelling that we would use them even at great risk to ourselves and others? The answers will surprise you and may well change how you look at proposed solutions and your relationships to technology. As society looks to break the deadly grip of distracted driving, scientists have uncovered a possible key to thoughtful policy: the role of the human brain. This provocative (sometimes funny) presentation will describe the relationship between our brains and our smartphones and other gadgets.
