On July 6th, at 7PM CET (1PM in NY, 10AM in California) I will be chatting online with David Orban on his show Searching For The Question Live (#sftql) about the present and future of particle physics, artificial intelligence and its applications to research, science communication, and the whereabouts. I hope you will be joining us, it should be fun!

For those of you who do not know who David Orban is:

David studied physics in Padova and we met there, about a billion years ago. From there he took a very interesting career path, which lead him to found companies, implant microchips under his skin, lecture around the world, and much more. In his site, David defines himself as "an investor, entrepreneur, author, blogger, keynote speaker, and thought leader of the global technology landscape. His entrepreneurial accomplishments span several companies founded and grown over more than twenty years", but he is being shy. He is an inspiring figure for whomever wants to think at the future of humankind and how it can be shaped to our benefit.

A man of vast culture and curiosity, David knows that the crucial ingredient for progress is not to provide answers to the riddles that our investigation of the world pops up, but rather, to search for the most relevant question. So he holds high-level conversations with his guests on the topics of relevance, in his live broadcast. If you follow it, you are able to interact by asking your own questions to the host and the guest, as well as make your own point if you have one.

And what will we be talking about, specifically? Hell, who knows? We will be searching for the question, of course. The broad area we will linger on is fundamental research in physics, and where it is going; what to do to engage people in science - a topic dear to my heart -, and how the recent advances in computer science will be helping to further our knowledge. The show will be aired on the show site, on Facebook, on Twitter, and on Youtube. So you have no excuse for not tuning in!
