Imogen Heap shares with us her own personal search for musical perfection and the journey she has made developing Mi.Mu gloves -- a tool that gives musicians maximum freedom to improvise and allows simple movements to sculpt music.
In François Moncarey’s projection mapping work, light inhabits and transforms spaces. Using photos and 3D construction models, François will bring the full-sized image of the CMS detector to life with light in his artistic rendition titled Turbulence. As a part of MySquare, François’ work includes digital arts and dance. With his collective, CENC (Centre for Digital and Physical Expression), he creates visual chemistry between images and choreography.
Madeleine Lancaster delves into the age-old question of what makes us human with a new approach -- by growing cerebral organoids from stem cells in a petri dish and studying their development.
Neurotechnology has the potential to influence what we remember and what we forget, what we feel and perceive, even what we think and believe. Matthew Liao investigates the ethics of these capabilities and the individual’s and society’s responsibility towards them.
Making sense of the world is not an easy task but can technology help us? Aleksandra Lobnik brings a whole new approach. Founder of the Centre for Sensor Technology at University of Maribor in Slovenia, her research is focused on the development of sensors for applications such as food quality, security and the environment.
Rachel Armstrong talks about innovating and designing sustainable habitable structures that use new technologies such as synthetic biology and smart chemistry to better respond to the challenges of the third millennium.
Michael Bodekaer wants to make quality science education more accessible using technology. He has an idea that might revolutionize the way we learn and teach science in schools today.
“Computer science is one of the worst things to happen to computers or to science,” said Neil Gershenfeld at TED 2006. In this TEDxCERN talk, Gershenfeld elaborates on how computer science, unlike physics, has arbitrarily segregated the notion that computing happens in an alien world. He talks about breaking down barriers between the digital and physical worlds, and gives us a glimpse of a revolution that could change the way our economy works.
Sean Follmer believes that technology should adapt to our needs, should follow our natural human movements, and eventually even adapt the environment we work and live in. He shares with us prototype concepts that might change the way you look at the everyday tools we use.
Jeff Frost turns reality into a vision by combining painting, time-lapse photography and sound, and turning them into short films. He talks about his work process in creating material for U2’s Innocence+Experience tour, and shows an exclusive short film that he created especially for TEDxCERN.
