TED talk of the day: The Greatest Machine That Never Was

Recently discovered TEDTalks available on PodCast through iTunes and downloaded a few to watch.  This one sparked my interest and I’m glad I watched it.  It originally aired in July 2012, but the project to build the entirely mechanical machine described in the video is underway.  I just thought it was cool and that the community at IHC would enjoy it.

From the description: Computer science began in the ’30s … the 1830s. John Graham-Cumming tells the story of Charles Babbage’s mechanical, steam-powered “analytical engine” and how Ada Lovelace, mathematician and daughter of Lord Byron, saw beyond its simple computational abilities to imagine the future of computers. (Filmed at TEDxImperialCollege.)

What’s invisible? More in this world than you know.

Gravity. The stars in day. Thoughts. The human genome. Time. Atoms. So much of what really matters in the world is impossible to see. A stunning animation of John Lloyd’s classic TEDTalk from 2009, which will make you question what you actually know.
