A fascinating conversation about past and present space missions. Dr. Butler Hine is the Flight Project Manager and Chief Technologist for Engineering at the NASA Ames Research Center and a senior research scientist at IHMC.
800 grams (28.2 ounces) sounds like a lot of fruits and vegetables in a day, but it is one of the best nutritional strategies to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (24%), stroke (33%), cardiovascular disease (28%), cancer (14%) and all-cause mortality (31%).
What happens when Siri and Wolfram Alpha fail us? We are still in need of humans to interpret and answer questions. This paper explores how expert knowledge and crowdsourcing overlap with the monetary and social benefits of popular Q&A systems.
A framework by which we can understand beauty, why we desire it, and how to maximize finding it through the process of discovery. The theory suggests that our actions search for novelty that is compressible.
This talk extends previous work on the YOLO algorithm to detect and classify objects in realtime. Redmon goes onto discuss the potentially nefarious ways (i.e., dual use) this technology can be used and exploited.
Using compression as a foundation, Morris takes a look at how rhythm, periodicity and lyrics combine to create music that is meaningful (or not). Incredibly insightful even for non-musicians who like seeing data in different light.
Sharena Rice is fantastic. She is a punster-calligrapher-scientist. Her positively contagious personality and perspective on life might just make your day.
She’s a young woman whose story will make your heart beat just a little bit louder. Elizabeth Rodriguez is the rare amalgamation of motherly wisdom and youthful flare that is chicken soup for our souls.
Rafi Kohen is a Turkish delight, an infectious concoction of talent and personality. From tackling problems of synaptic plasticity during the day, to unleashing his tango at night, he’s a man you could enjoy tea and laughs with for days on end.
Kate is Midwest modesty and big city drive, all wrapped into one. Although she isn’t one to brag, she’s a classically trained musician—Vivaldi on the violin—not to mention Picasso with a pencil! This will be the last time you think of corn fields when you hear the word “Nebraska” because, if Kate’s smile hasn’t already won you over, her story will.
She is a tea-drinking, guitar-playing runner who believes that education is a right, not a privilege. She studies from a three-inch heap of notecards, daydreams about time travel, and, in high school, thought she would eventually become a quantum physicist. Ladies and gentlemen, Christina May is a huge force in a petite package, and she is impossible to forget!
