TED Talks – een selectie II

Een 2e selectie van TED Talks aangetroffen op de website van TED – www.ted.com:

As an expert on cutting-edge digital displays, Mary Lou Jepsen studies how to show our most creative ideas on screens. And as a brain surgery patient herself, she is driven to know more about the neural activity that underlies invention, creativity, thought. She meshes these two passions in a rather mind-blowing talk on two cutting-edge brain studies that might point to a new frontier in understanding how (and what) we think.
Mary Lou Jepsen: Could future devices read images from our brains? (10:26)

Onstage at TED2014, Charlie Rose interviews Google CEO Larry Page about his far-off vision for the company. It includes aerial bikeways and internet balloons … and then it gets even more interesting, as Page talks through the company’s recent acquisition of Deep Mind, an A.I. that is learning some surprising things.
Larry Page: Where’s Google going next? (23:30)

Hugh Herr is building the next generation of bionic limbs, robotic prosthetics inspired by nature’s own designs. Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago; now, as the head of the MIT Media Lab’s Biomechatronics group, he shows his incredible technology in a talk that’s both technical and deeply personal — with the help of ballroom dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who lost her left leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and performs again for the first time on the TED stage.
Hugh Herr: The new bionics that let us run, climb and dance (19:00)

    De rode draad van deze selectie TED Talks betreft de steeds dichtere verbondenheid tussen mens en technologie. We herinneren ons natuurlijk allemaal ‘Terminator’ met Arnold Schwarzenegger…waarin ‘Skynet bewust wordt’.

    Als we Larry Page (die een tenenkrommend vervelend saaie stem heeft) horen over een ‘steeds sneller lerende computer’ en ‘voice recognition verbeteringen’, Hugh Herr over de toekomst van ‘bionics’ en Mary Lou Jepsen over het scannen van hersenen om zo beeldinformatie te vergaren dan kunnen we alleen maar stellen dat we interessante tijden tegemoet gaan.

    Sitenote: De video van Hugh Herr eindigt met een dans gedaan door een dame die haar linkerbeen is kwijt geraakt tijden ‘The Boston Bombings’…er gingen bij ons meteen alarmbellen rinkelen. Waarom? Omdat dit naar schijnt een ‘False Flag’ operatie was. Remember?
