List of 2016 TEDxCERN webcast partners

Location
Blockchain and a new paradigm of collectivity
Matan Field believes we are standing at the dawn of a new era, a turning point in society, and invites us in to this changing world. First introduced by the anonymous Bitcoin inventor, Blockchain is a revolutionary new technology and concept which is now an exponential force. Are you ready to imagine a purely decentralized era of large-scale cooperation between people and computers which has never been possible before?
The spontaneous origin of creativity
What is creativity and where does it come from? Neuroscientist Nathan Evans from the Agalma Foundation asks this question during his talk, and enlists two jazz pianists to help him answer it. During their performance, an EEG charts and projects the neural activities of two pianists as they synergize, improvise and create. The performance demonstrates what is happening in the brain when humans spontaneously collaborate in an uncertain and evolving environment.
Community DIY science
If music is playing but no one listens, does it really exist?
Agalma Foundation argue that there is no music until someone is listening. Through an immersive experience, we explore the unique relationship between composer, performer and audience. Performing two beautiful piano pieces, composer Orazio challenges auditory, visual and psychological perspectives. You are invited to join the ritual.
How climate change is altering the underwater soundscape
The underwater isn’t silent, it’s as noisy as any jungle or rainforest – but climate change is dramatically changing the soundscape and the impact on the planet could be cataclysmic. Oceanographer Kate Stafford takes us on an auditory and visual journey, from the depths of the ocean and up to the surface with a clear message – to develop local solutions to reduce human-caused underwater noise.
Life-saving drones

The word “drone” has become synonymous with autonomous killing machine. But the technology itself isn’t inherently evil—in fact, drones might be the best solution to some of the world’s biggest problems. Engineer Samir Hayat explains how she is redesigning drones to perform tasks such as search and rescue, and explores how this technology could one day revolutionize humanitarian aid work.

 

The universe has spoken to us
Ever heard a sound from 1.3 billion years ago? On 14 September 2015, scientists were able to sense and record a vibration of space time. Sheila Rowan bends minds and perspectives in her lucid explanation of gravitational waves – the study of which she has dedicated her whole career. But what’s next? With highly sensitive detectors, the family tree of black hole evolution throughout cosmic time could be unveiled…
The promise and perils of DNA editing
Today we have the possibility to edit diseases like caner out of our genome. But ethicist and policy expert Eleonore Pauwels is urging doctors and policy makers to look before they leap into an uncertain future. In her talk, Pauwels explains the potential of genome editing, but how if we’re not careful, playing with our DNA could make us vulnerable to unforeseen and potentially lethal consequences.
Exploring the vast dark universe
Only a tiny fraction of the matter in our universe is visible; everything else is dark. Dark matter is so shy that we only know it exists because of its ostensible gravitational tugs on celestial bodies. Physicist Laura Baudis from the University of Zurich explains the history of dark matter research and how scientists are hoping to uncover its mysterious properties by trapping, tracking or even creating it by using the world’s best tools.
Why toddlers are smarter than computers
Advancements in artificial intelligence are changing how we analyze and process information. But these advances fall short when compared with the ingenuity and creativity of an average three-year old. In his talk, psychologist and neuroscientist Gary Marcus compares advancements in AI to the resilience of the human brain on tasks such as common sense and real-time evaluations.
Read-along with Bollywood
Imagine for a moment that you wake up and were unable to read, what would be the consequences in your life? In India alone, 740 million people are weak readers or illiterate. They cannot read simple text which makes ordinary tasks such as reading medical prescription a challenge. By pioneering a concept called 'Same-Language Subtitling' Brij Kothari has taken India's love of Bollywood and turned watching films with subtitles into improving literacy across the country.
A window to our health
Early in his career, Dennis Lo questioned why invasive and sometimes life threatening methods of diagnosing diseases in DNA, continued to take place. His research enabled him to develop a non-invasive technique for prenatal testing. Today he shares with us how he hopes that with a similar technology a single blood test could be used in early cancer detection.
