Cris Moore, Resident Faculty at the Santa Fe Institute Co-hosts with Melanie Moses Professor of Computer Science at UNM and External Faculty at Santa Fe Institute.

The show focuses on how the inequities in our healthcare system and society at large were exposed by COVID-19 and opportunities for addressing these inequalities in the vaccine delivery process. 
The show concludes with Dr. Moses discussing her work with swarm robotics which she is testing in New Mexico to measure CO2 and other gasses released by volcanoes which could serve to predict eruptions earlier. This technology also shows promise for tracking methane emissions in Gas and oil fields as well.
Professors Moore and Moses will be a part of a facilitated discussion of the movie "Coded Bias" at the virtual CCA Tuesday March 9th  at 6:00 PM MST
