NASA TV will be livestreaming the Technosignatures workshop at this URL. The workshop is about the numberous ways we could search for extraterrestrial technologies. Many of the Berkeley SETI personnel will be speaking today (Wednesday). The agenda can be found here

See where you said you have some Parks data. Any idea how long before Beta testing?

I've been watching a lot of this over the last few days.

What time UTC or local is the final session ?

Do you know where the recordings will be posted ?

Thanks, Keith

Related (until we can eventually access the workshop's videos on NASA TV or elsewhere) : on the 25th, NASA informed us that on Thursday, Sept. 27, several of the workshop’s speakers would be answering questions in a Reddit AMA. Relevant link follows.

We Are Scientists Looking for Technosignatures (signs of intelligent life)! Ask Us Anything!

Submitted on 27 Sep 2018 * by nasa

Thanks for joining us for today's Reddit AMA on technosignatures! We're signing off, but you can learn more about our search at https://go.nasa.gov/2Dzgz2J

Is there life out there, beyond the edge of our solar system? Are we alone? People from all walks of life have pondered those questions. For decades, NASA has lead the charge in finding out. Astrobiologists—scientists who study how life could live on other planets—search for clues in acidic lakes, deep under ice, or at searing hot hydrothermal vents in the ocean. They also think about what signs of life could look like on other worlds, including planets in our own solar system and exoplanets, which are planets orbiting stars outside our solar system. These signs are called “biosignatures,” and include things like certain types of molecules or traces left in a rock.

At the same time, other scientists have pioneered a different kind of search for life. These scientists look for signs of intelligent life who might be trying to reach out to others in the galaxy with radio or laser transmissions. These signs are called “technosignatures.” Other types of technosignatures include evidence of pollutants in an exoplanet atmosphere or signs of an extraterrestrial structure around an exoplanet or star.

We’re a group of scientists who study astrobiology, exoplanets (including potentially habitable ones!) and potential technosignatures, and we’re here to answer your questions about this exciting field! We’ll be online starting at 1:00 p.m. EDT and we will sign our answers with our names or initials. Ask Us Anything!

I just tried with both of those browsers and they both worked fine for me.

Google Chrome Version 69.0.3497.100 (Official Build) (64-bit) shows the videos just fine for me. :~)

I tried to install Chrome on my Linux boxes but it did not work at all. So I installed Chromium, an open version of Chrome as suggested by SuSE, my distro, and it does not show any NASA video.

Thanks for the link Eric. It irks me a little bit that Seti@home has been looking for intelligent signals for nearly 20 years, then along came NASA, late to the party, and call it by a fancy name of technosignatures, and start pinching the glory.
