Poet Laureate Jason Heroux offers a 90-minute workshop on Renga poetry in dialogue with the work of Leonard Cohen. Presented in conjunction with Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal's 'Dance Me' at the Grand.

Renga is a genre of Japanese collaborative poetry: verse written by multiple authors in conversation.  In this 15-person workshop for those aged 14 and older, Jason Heroux will lead a discussion of Leonard Cohen's work, after which the participants will use Cohen's verse to initiate a series of Renga poems. 

This workshop is offered in conjunction with the February 25 Grand OnStage presentation of Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal's 'Dance Me', which has been described as "an exclusive creation inspired by the rich and profound work of Leonard Cohen".  For more information about the performance and to purchase tickets please visit https://www.kingstongrand.ca/events/les-ballets-jazz-de-montreal-dance-me

March brings the third installment in our new Brain Storm speakers' series, in which students from Queen's Centre for Neuroscience Studies talk about their research.  This month PhD candidate Leif Simmatis outlines Artificial Intelligence in Medicine.

The last thirty years have seen startling advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms, as well as in our ability to collect and store data.  Health care is poised to benefit enormously, both in terms of more personalized medicine and more efficient delivery of care.  Whether it's in the use of computer vision to diagnose cancer and stroke, the use of AI to interpret patients' medical records, or in the potential for automatic detection of health risks, this is an exciting time for researchers.  Leif will give a brief overview of the basic concepts of AI and machine learning, then discuss current trends in health-centric AI, including examples of both successes and failures.  He'll also explain some of the ethical and legal matters to consider.  

This event takes place at our Isabel Turner branch on Saturday, March 7, at 2 p.m.  It is open to adults, and there is no admission charge, but seating is limited.  To avoid disappointment, please register in advance at calendar.kfpl.ca or by phone at (613) 549-8888, any time after 9 a.m. on Saturday, February 22.
