His talk on evolution at the Paramount Theater was the Saturday after this dinner, held in his honor. The theater event included talks by:

  • Dr. Jack Horner, famed paleontologist who found the first clear evidence that some dinosaurs cared for their young. Dr. Horner also served as the technical advisor for all of the Jurassic Park films.
  • Dr. Leroy Hood, a renowned biologist, inventor, and entrepreneur. His prize-winning research is responsible for automating DNA sequencing, which revolutionized biomedicine and forensic science. His research has helped to unlock much of the mystery of human biology by helping decode the genome.

Dr. Hawking flew out from the UK with his assistants. It was truly wonderful to hear him share what it is like to use the “mechanical voice” provided by Intel-derived technology and how it became a tool for him. Dr. Hawking thoroughly enjoyed making us laugh as he told a few jokes. His humor, humility, and brillance were plain as day and I know we all appreciated that he spoke about his life and his work on a level that each and every one of us could understand. Some great information about his work and career can be found here on Wikipedia!
