Ignite San Diego has the following premise:
If you had five minutes on stage, what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically every 15 seconds?
I gave the following talk:
STEPHEN LARSON - Reverse engineering the brain, online
Neuroscience is undergoing a revolution in information technology. New online tools bridging neuroscience and computer science have the potential to bring scientists, students, educators, and even the public together to reverse-engineer the structure and function of the brain. This talk will provide a brief overview of this trend and what can be expected coming down the road.
The talk was well received. An attendee blogged about it:
Larson is a Ph.D candidate in Neuroscience at UCSD and discussed the potential of combining both neuroscience and computer science to provide the academic and public communities with more information and a better understanding of the human brain. As soon as he mentioned developing a “Google Map of the Brain,” I was sold.
On Sunday, August 16th, my presentation was made a featured presentation on the front page of SlideShare!
