Computer science in the 90s, Johns Hopkins University, 1989
Towards the end of the 20th century, there was increasing public interest in technology and its capabilities. Computer science advanced rapidly. This poster advertises a lecture series that happened on the cusp of the 1990s tech boom, in which experts, including past National Library of Medicine director Donald A.B. Lindberg, discussed artificial intelligence, computer science, and bioinformatics. Note the diagram that references phrenology, a historical pseudoscience similar to physiognomy, in the bottom right of the poster.
