## TED: Robots With Soul

In this TED talk Guy Hoffman introduces his revolutionary work on robots. Besides robotics, the other great passion of his is animation. Interestingly, Hoffman realized that his interest in animation could be an invaluable advantage when creating a new generation of robots. This resulted in a revolutionary lamp robot, which moves around to give the […]

## An Equation for Intelligence

One of the great difficulties when investigating intelligence to a physicist is a lack of equations, — after all, physicists simply love equations. That’s probably why Alex Wissner-Gross decided to come up with an equation describing intelligence. And that equation is F = T ∇ Sτ, where F is the force, T is temperature and S […]

## An Information Time Machine

A bunch of great TED talks on science and engineering have been posted recently, so here’s an update. In this talk, Frederic Kaplan, a researcher and an engineer, will discuss his idea of digitizing vast historical archives and presenting such information in an open and easy-to-access format. So, for example, imagine if you could use […]

## TED: Universe on a Knife Edge

In this recent TED video Gian Giudice discusses the discovery of Higgs boson and what it means for physics. In particular, he discusses why Higgs is not the end of particle physics and what other discoveries might be expected from our colliders. In addition, Giudice presents an idea that Higgs field could exist in an ultra-dense state, […]

## TED: Psychedelic Science

I always thought of science as just another branch of art. Then again, art could be viewed as just another science, couldn’t it? It’s great that there are people, who share such a view. As an example, a Swiss artist and photographer Fabian Oefner spends his time by turning everyday science into works of art. In […]

## TED: Why I Fell in Love With Monster Prime Numbers by Adam Spencer

Adam Spencer, who talks about prime numbers in this recent TED talk, is an amazing personality — he is a radio presenter, media personality and a huge math geek. In this presentation he talks about prime numbers, their meaning, importance, short history and what is the largest currently known prime number. Finally he finishes with […]

## Taylor Wilson on Small Fission Reactors

Taylor Wilson is popular for creating a working fusor when he was only 14 years old. Now, however, he’s gonna talk about his ideas on how to revolutionize fission reactors. Wilson has won financing to create a company to realize his vision of small nuclear fission reactors. In this video he explains why his big idea could […]

## Benoit Mandelbrot on Fractals and the Art of Roughness

Benoit B. Mandelbrot was a Polish-born, French and American mathematician, noted for his work on the “theory of roughness” and the development of the field of fractal geometry. His other work include creation of the so-called Mandelbrot set of never-ending fractal shapes and work on the mathematics of the stock market prices. In this talk, which happens to be one […]
