David Ewalt: "Defying Reality: The Inside Story of the Virtual Reality Revolution" | Talks at Google David Ewalt: "Defying Reality: The Inside Story of the Virtual Reality Revolution" | Talks at Google
3 days ago En
Technology has often progressed in leaps and bounds, with life-altering consequences for humankind, from the telegraph to the television set to the internet. Today we are confronted by the rise of virtual reality, aka VR. No longer just a mainstay of science fiction, VR has seen recent success with companies such as Oculus, Sony, and HTC -- but little is known about its history, which reaches back decades. In a new book, journalist and expert David Ewalt chronicles its origins in Cold War military laboratories, and traces it through decades of hype and failed products, to a nineteen-year-old video game aficionado from California whose advancements made the recent breakthroughs in VR possible. Turning to the future, Ewalt investigates the Silicon Valley giants who are now creating a new hundred-billion-dollar industry. Starting as a cover story for Forbes, Ewalt’s DEFYING REALITY: The Inside Story of the Virtual Reality Revolution goes more in depth than his original article ever could, telling a tale of booms and busts, of fortunes built and lost, and one teenage genius who succeeded where everyone else had failed. Ewalt offers a unique perspective on how VR got here, where it's going, and how and why it will change the way we live. Rife with first-hand accounts and on-the-ground reporting, DEFYING REALITY makes the argument that virtual reality has the potential to impact every aspect of our social and independent lives, from gaming and entertainment to commerce, to medicine and warfare.

1 month ago En
Several of the cast members (Gregg Mozgala, Tiffany Villarin, Marinda Anderson, and Shannon DeVido) perform a scene from their hit play "Teenage Dick," followed by a talk on accessibility and the importance of diverse representation in the arts. About the play: A brilliantly hilarious take on Richard III, Shakespeare’s classic tale of power lust, TEENAGE DICK reimagines the most famous disabled character of all time as a 16-year-old outsider in the deepest winter of his discontent: his junior year at Roseland High. Picked on because of his cerebral palsy (as well as his sometimes creepy Shakespearean way of speaking), Richard is determined to have his revenge and make his name by becoming president of the senior class. But as he manipulates and crushes the obstacles to his electoral success, Richard finds himself faced with a decision he never expected would be his to make: is it better to be loved or feared? Tony nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Present Laughter, Hand to God) directs Mike Lew’s (Tiger Style!) devastatingly funny, sharply written new play about perception, disability, and the lengths we’re willing to go to rise above our station in life… and high school. TEENAGE DICK was produced by Ma-Yi Theater in association with The Public Theater and commissioned and developed by The Apothetae, a company dedicated to plays that explore and illuminate the "Disabled Experience."

Pablo is a visiting ETH researcher at the time of this talk. Pablo’s PhD focuses on DMS, Isoprene and Methyl Iodide. The marine emission of these trace gases contributes to marine aerosol formation and,consequently, they are able to trigger important climatic roles.Therefore, in order to understand the mechanisms involved in these processes, Pablo combines bio optical and in situ data, from oceanographic cruises to fieldwork on islands, with ecological modelling and remote sensing tools. Ultimately, the goal is to develop novel mathematical models implementing the biogeochemical processes related to the target trace gases, with the aim of assessing its climatic relevance under the current context of global change. Pablo has been involved in several oceanographic research projects, spending in total more than 4 months on research cruises. He has fieldwork expertise at: Mediterranean Sea, North Sea, Indian Ocean, Atlantic Ocean and Antarctic Ocean.

Through her difficult journey, not unlike her heroine's, she has to face the struggles, sacrifices and the price that a woman has to pay if she dares to cross the lines of a conservative male dominated society.

Richard Munson: "Tesla, Inventor of the Modern" | Talks at Google Richard Munson: "Tesla, Inventor of the Modern" | Talks at Google
1 month ago En
Tesla’s inventions transformed our world, and his visions have continued to inspire great minds for generations. Nikola Tesla invented the radio, robots, and remote control. His electric induction motors run our appliances and factories, yet he has been largely overlooked by history. In "Tesla", Richard Munson presents a comprehensive portrait of this farsighted and underappreciated mastermind. Tesla worked tirelessly to offer electric power to the world, to introduce automatons that would reduce life’s drudgery, and to develop machines that might one day abolish war. His story is a reminder that technology can transcend the marketplace and that profit is not the only motivation for invention. This clear, authoritative, and highly readable biography takes account of all phases of Tesla’s remarkable life. Richard Munson is the author of several books, including "From Edison to Enron" and "Cousteau: The Captain and His World". Based in Chicago, Illinois, he directs Environmental Defense Fund’s clean-energy efforts in the Midwest. Get the book here: https://goo.gl/NeNFUt

Kaki King & Giorgia Lupi: "Bruises: The Data We Don't See" | Talks at Google Kaki King & Giorgia Lupi: "Bruises: The Data We Don't See" | Talks at Google
1 month ago En
Still touring her groundbreaking multimedia show “The Neck is a Bridge to the Body,” acclaimed composer Kaki King has partnered with information designer and visual artist Giorgia Lupi, author of Dear Data, to create an audiovisual interpretation of a frightening personal journey, turning fear into beauty, making sense of the unknown. Having previously worked together on a design project for Hennessey, Kaki and Giorgia have continued to tap into what Giorgia calls “Data Humanism” to explore the emotional and cognitive uses of data. Watch "Bruises" Here: https://goo.gl/1RHxZz Last summer, Kaki’s three-year-old daughter was suddenly diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, turning her family’s life upside down. After a blood test, she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), where her body attacks her platelets, a crucial part of blood clotting. The following weeks were a terrifying spree of platelet transfusions, courses of steroids, blood tests, and abject terror as Kaki and her wife watched their daughter’s platelet levels rise and fall. When her friend and fellow artist Giorgia Lupi learned what the family was going through, she proposed a creative exercise using music, art, and data - both medical and personal - to help Kaki bring a sense of clarity and calm to what was happening. The result is the beautifully cathartic "Bruises" (https://goo.gl/f8QzhF), an audiovisual “mapping” of the data collected as Kaki tracked her daughter’s bruises and platelet counts, along with her family’s stress levels. Clinical records alone hardly capture the full impact the illness of a child has on a family. Can a softer and more empathetic approach to what we so coldly call “data” help us make sense of what’s happening in our lives? Can data visualization help us emotionally as well as cognitively? For a deeper and more detailed exploration of this project, read Giorgia’s story on Medium (https://goo.gl/LJrdCQ).

Dr. Jeff Schloss: "The Science of Faith and Flourishing" | Talks at Google Dr. Jeff Schloss: "The Science of Faith and Flourishing" | Talks at Google
1 month ago En
In recent years the fascinating, centuries-old debate over the relationship between faith and science has expanded from focusing primarily on the way science supports or challenges traditional reasons for religious belief, to consider how current studies explain the causes and consequences of faith. Are we naturally disposed to believe in moral deities, the sacred, or transcendent purpose (is there a “god-shaped vacuum” in the human heart)?; or are such beliefs invasive “viruses of the mind”? Are religious belief and practice largely pathological, or do they contribute to measures of individual and social flourishing? Dr. Jeff Schloss explores recent findings, assesses ongoing debates, and describes emerging consensus between a wide range of religious and non-religious researchers on faith & human flourishing.

"Eva is courage wrapped up in that little tiny body of hers," says fellow Holocaust speaker Jeannie Opdyke Smith.
