Brain Storm: Artificial Intelligence in Medicine

Is artificial intelligence (AI) in your health care future?  Advances in AI and machine learning will mean changes in medicine — not only in diagnosis and automatic detection of health risks, but also in more personalized medicine.  Learn about current trends and some of the ethical and legal matters to consider.  Free to all adults, but seating is limited.  To avoid disappointment, please register in advance at calendar.kfpl.ca or by phone at (613) 549-8888.  Saturday, March 7, at Isabel Turner, 2 p.m.

Grownup storytime  Why should kids have all the fun

Grownup Storytime

Join us for the final Grownup Storytime in this round: 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. on Monday, February 24, at the Sydenham branch. Listen to a couple of short readings — short stories, essays, articles, excerpts and more.  Then enjoy a chat about what you've heard.  Bring your lunch or your knitting, or just take a break from a busy day. Be sure to  mark your calendar: after a break during March we’ll return for another five weeks, Mondays from April 6 through May 11 (except Easter Monday on April 13), still by the fireplace.  Why should kids have all the fun?
