The 2010 World Economic Forum (“Davos”) has released a set of 5 minute video presentations from its IdeasLab program. Presentations are limited to 5 minutes (20 slides) so there is no ‘death by powerpoint‘, just good old fashioned ideas sharing from some of the world’s brightest minds.
Here are five presentations from a group of MIT Professors and Researchers on the nature of intelligence via social brain, reverse engineering the brain, collective wisdom, and web scale change:
MIT’s Rebecca Saxe: Social Brain
MIT’s Josh Tenenbaum: Reverse Engineering Brain
MIT’s Sebastian Seung
“… your conectome is the totality of your brains connections”
Tim Berners-Lee – Intelligence at Web scale
MIT – Thomas Malone
How can computers and human groups be connected to be intelligent and wise?
