Presentation on the Redefining the Kilogram
The Office of Research and Economic Development is sponsoring a presentation, "Science by Committee? The New Kilogram," by Dr. Ted Hill. The talk will survey the colorful process of defining the kilogram, the international politics behind it, and a new statistical principle that arose from studying alternative re-definitions. Dr. Hill is a Cal Poly Research Scholar in Residence. This presentation will be held on Wednesday, February 20, at 4:10pm in Room 285, Fisher Science (Bldg. 33).
