Remembering Professor Stephen Hawking

On March 31st, a memorial service for the late Professor Stephen Hawking will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam. The service will be held at the same time as the funeral service being held in Cambridge, UK, where Professor Hawking lived and worked. Among those attending in Hanoi are representatives from the Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation, Boston Global Forum, VietnamNet, and VietNam Reports, as well as a number of Vietnamese ministers, scientists, and thought leaders.

BGF and MDI will be represented by CEO Nguyen Anh Tuan and Professor Derek Reveron of the U.S. Naval War College and our own Board of Thinkers. Professor Hawking was named a Distinguished Global Citizenship Educator by BGF’s Global Citizenship Education Network and AIWS is working with his colleagues to keep his ideas and predictions on artificial intelligence alive. Please join us in honoring and remembering the legacy of Professor Stephen Hawking, who dedicated his life to humanity’s future and place in the  vast cosmos.
