This Wednesday, April 30, a meeting of minds will be held at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. The event will play host to IBM scientific researchers as well as screenwriters, studio executives, producers and USC film students and faculty. The purpose of the event, which is expected to begin with opening remarks by Dean Elizabeth Daley, is for scientists and moviemakers to share ideas, solve problems and inspire progress in their respective fields. A list of attending moviemakers was not made available prior to the event, but with scientists explaining what science fiction ideas and technologies will be made real in the coming years, and moviemakers throwing out their own ideas for scientific research through the sci-fi films they create, one has to assume that James Cameron will have something to say.
