Last week in Long Beach during the TED 2011 conference, I was blown away (multiple times) by incredible speakers and fellow attendees. There is so much interesting work going on right now, and it was nothing short of thrilling to get a glimpse into some of it. One of my favorite speakers was Deb Roy. He is an MIT researcher who spoke about his process of wiring his house with videocameras to catch every moment of his infant son’s life as a way to understand how he learned language. Deb then creating 4d mappings of these recordings as a way to make a powerful, yet incredibly simple, method for exposing patterns in learning language.

The TED conference tag line is “Ideas worth sharing”. Well, Deb’s idea is certainly worth sharing. Watch his 18 minute mind-blowing talk below:
