The Human Mind Project runs an annual festival called Being Human. This year at Senate House I worked with Guerilla Science and The People Speak to open up discussion about artificial intelligence and creativity.
Talkaoke was in the EU Corner at The Natural History Museum for Science Uncovered 2016.
We talked about things like driverless cars, economics, dinosaurs, politics and Star Trek.
Talkaoke, in conjunction with Chat Lab from Queen Mary, was at ExCel Centre in London for 4 days of New Scientist Live, a festival of ideas and discovery.
There’s also lots of photos from the event here…
My latest science story for the BBC on the topic of dog psychology. Why is it smaller dogs seem to have aggressive behaviours? Is this real, imagined, acquired, innate? Read the article to explore more…
The People Speak made an appearance at this years small and eclectic SuperNormal festival.
We talked about anything and everything. Please note there are some sensitive topics covered in some of these discussions such as the nature of consent and individual’s experiences involving the lack of it.
This year at the amazing Citadel Festival in London’s Victoria Park we ran a Talkaoke session outside an area called The Sunday Papers. At The Sunday Papers people could hear talks but various interesting speakers and engage them in Q&As. We scooped up the audience as they walked by and brought them to the flying saucer of chat. Watch these clips to find out what we talked about at a very exciting edition of Talkaoke!
I’ve spent the last couple of days filming a small conference and set of seminars at the British Psychological Society in London.
This proved truly fascinating and the chair Professor Paul Grantham really brought this subject, solution focused brief therapy, to life. I briefly studied some neuroscience as part of my undergraduate degree in cybernetics and AI, but this is the first time I’ve really been engaged with academics in the field of psychology.
What was really special about this filming work though was that it was part of a live webcast. The platform used, Oli Gaffikin’s Global Podium, is a great piece of kit! It’s not just a very robust video streaming service, but it really places remote participants in the heart of the seminar environment by means of a parallel stream for additional material, slides, videos etc… Remote participants can interact with their in-situ peers through a specialised messaging service.
