  9. David Eagleman: “Can We Create New Senses for Humans?” | Talks at Google

    As the creator of stacks of compelling research, books and now the 6-part PBS series The Brain, grey matter expert David Eagleman is our most visible evangelist for neuroscience. He has helmed ground-breaking studies on time perception, brain plasticity and neurolaw. His latest research explores technology that bypasses sensory impairment.

    Humans can perceive less than a ten-trillionth of all light waves. "Our experience of reality," says neuroscientist David Eagleman, "is constrained by our biology." He wants to change that. His research into our brain processes has led him to create new interfaces — such as a smartphone-controlled vest that translates sound into patterns of vibration for the deaf — to take in previously unseen information about the world around us.

  10. Lukasz Krawczyk: “Saving the Forest from Space” | Talks at Google

    Axelspace is a start-up that develops Earth observation infrastructure. Their flagship “AxelGlobe” technology, which consists of a constellation of microsatellites, has the ability to provide before-after imagery of the world with a resolution of 2.5 m (enough to distinguish cars!). Lukasz Krawczyk, one of their engineers from Poland, shares how Axelspace is protecting our forests using AxelGlobe technology.
