Are Fast Radio Bursts signals from ET? Or are they signals from magnetars? Is `Oumuamua an alien space ship? Or is it a rock from another solar system? Are we alone in the universe? Current and future SETI projects may provide an answer.Berkeley SETI Research Center chief scientist Dan Werthimer will describe the rationale for past and future searches and will show how new technologies are revolutionizing SETI.

Dan will describe the 100 million dollar Breakthrough Listen project, SETI@home, SETI on FAST (the world’s largest telescope), the new PANOSETI all-sky-all-the-time project, as well as concepts for future SETI.
