    Synthetic Biology: Principles and Applications – Jan Roelof van der Meer

    Hello, my name is Jan Roelof van der Meer, I’m a professor in microbiology at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. Today I would like to talk to you about synthetic biology. About the principles of synthetic biology, and some of the applications. Some of you may have very different perspectives and ideas about what is synthetic biology. You may have heard of the word, you may have associated it with plastic organisms or with organisms doing various strange characteristics. But probably, this is not what synthetic biology really is. So my goal of today is to explain to you the concepts of synthetic biology and contrasting them to the…

    How Imagination and Intelligence Work Together in the Brain, with Scott Barry Kaufman

    It’s useful to distinguish between intelligence and imagination. They are different constructs as we would say. So I like to view intelligence as all the things, all the thought processes, behaviors that allow us to learn what is. Learn the way the world is. Whether or not it’s in a classroom situation and we have to use our learning skills to understand the material that’s being taught to us or we’re reading something we have to comprehend what we’re reading. We have to observe things. And a lot of that draws on this executive brain network. Our ability to focus and to synthesize information in our heads at one time…

    Pindar Van Arman Is Teaching Robot Artists To Paint Like Humans (HBO)

    — The Singularity is the theoretical day that artificial intelligence advances beyond human understanding and begins to change civilization in ways we can’t conceive of. Many fear the Singularity. — It needs… wanna try the gray? — Not Pindar Van Arman. He’s doing his small part to make it happen by teaching robots to make art. He’s writing code that nobody’s seen before, and thinks his machines are on the precipice of creative autonomy. — Here is a De Kooning and this one, the style’s just as interesting. — Wow. That looks cool. — And here is “Guernica.” A little darker, but… — Yeah, that looks like human suffering on…

    Would Roller Coasters Work on Mars?

    Over the past few years, there has been increasing excitement about travelling to Mars, and the possibility of establishing a human colony on the red planet. With recent breakthroughs in rocket engineering and the onset of a modern space race, it seems almost inevitable that there will be humans living there within the next decade. This got me thinking about what a future civilization might look on Mars once humans become an established species there. What will our homes look like? How will we travel from one place to another? How will we grow crops? And how long will it take for Disney to open the first Martian Disneyland. Even…

    An Animated Introduction to Social Science

    All right. If we’re all settled? Yes? Good. Welcome. We are the Social Science department. Now, I’ll get right to it. The question on everyone’s mind: “Just what the heck is social science?” Well, let me try to explain. Social, as in society, as in human beings. Science, as in the facts, the systematic study of a thing, the pursuit of its true nature. We seek to understand the nature of people and society. What does it mean to be human? What defines a person? Is it history? Is it ancestry? How has he worked, struggled, thrived? In his environment! Sorry? In his environment. Did he live on a mountain?…
