Cybernetics Snacks is a speaker series of virtual bite-sized talks with leading voices in the cybernetics conversation.
In each 15-30 minute public chat, we invite all speakers to respond to the same four questions – but every speaker and every talk is completely different! In the spirit of the Ratio Club, our PhD students then have the opportunity for an off-the-record conversation with the speaker. For everyone else, we package up a tasty Snack Pack of take-home resources relating to each speaker’s talk.
