Technology may be changing how we relate to each other, but it still reflects age-old human behaviors and needs. Such was the recurring theme in a Nov. 18 panel discussion in downtown Boston.

Moderated by computing and information science dean Daniel Huttenlocher, the panel examined how biomedical and digital technology affect human experience. Panelists: Kavita Bala, Jeff Hancock, Chris Schaffer, John Schimenti and Lyrae Van Clief-Stefanon.

The event was the centerpiece of Cornell on the Charles, the fourth in a series of events aimed at raising awareness of Cornell's strategic campaign priorities, particularly scholarship aid and faculty renewal.
