Description

The Bay Area Chapter of SID invites you and your guest to the BA-SID Annual Dinner! Join your local display industry colleagues for a summer evening full of delicious food, great company, a beautiful location, and a moving keynote address!

Our Keynote Speaker is Dr. Bruce Damer who will share his fascinating and awe-inspiring work in his talk titled Origin of Life.Speaker Photograph


Origin of Life

Dr. Bruce Damer is a scientist, designer, author and speaker who heads the newly formed Biota Institute, a research consortium focused on the key question "where did we come from". Collaborating with Prof. David Deamer at UC Santa Cruz, they published a novel hypothesis for how life began on the Earth 4 billion years ago and where we might find life in the universe. Their "Hot Spring Hypothesis" was recently featured on the cover of Scientific American and is now undergoing laboratory and field testing by teams around the world. The implications of recent scientific discoveries around this attempt to identify the cycle of biogenesis has major implications for advances in evolutionary biology, biotech, space sciences, AI and networks, and the entire future of the human enterprise. Dr. Damer will detail the hypothesis, how its testing is progressing and the three-phase "engine of creation" that may hold the keys to understanding how all systems operate. Dr. Damer also has a decades-long career in the design and simulation of spacecraft and missions for NASA, chronicling the history of Silicon Valley and the rise of the digital lifestyle and much more which can be found at www.damer.com.

The patio holds ~80 people comfortably, so purchase your ticket for you and your guest before we reach capacity! There is plenty of parking at the Coupa Cafe parking lot on site.
