The Duke University Provost's Lecture Series brings the University's research and teaching mission to bear on some timely societal issues. While the campus community is its core audience, it is directed as well to the Durham, national, and international audiences. The substance of the lecture series is developed with input from an appropriate committee of faculty. In addition to giving a public lecture, speakers are invited to meet with students and faculty in smaller group activities. "On Being Human" series explores how advances in neuroscience, genomics, robotics, and artificial intelligence are not only changing our conception of what it is to be human but also creating possibilities for changing 'human nature' in fundamental ways.
