Shai Agassi: A new ecosystem for electric cars

Shai Agassi: A new ecosystem for electric cars

So how would you run a whole country without oil? That’s the question that sort of hit me in the middle of a Davos afternoon about four years ago. It never left my brain. And I started playing with it more like a puzzle. The original thought I had: this must be ethanol. So I […]

Enrique Peñalosa: Why buses represent democracy in action

Mobility in developing world cities is a very peculiar challenge, because different from health or education or housing, it tends to get worse as societies become richer. Clearly, a unsustainable model. Mobility, as most other developing country problems, more than a matter of money or technology, is a matter of equality, equity. The great inequality […]

Translator: Robin Noel Reviewer: Denise RQ I’m going to talk about motor sports, in particular about racing. We’ll try and see if racing teaches us anything about life, if it has any use, any value, if it has an impact on all our futures.

How do pregnancy tests work? – Tien Nguyen

The earliest known pregnancy test dates back to 1350 BC in Ancient Egypt. According to the Egyptians, all you have to do is urinate on wheat and barley seeds, and wait. If either sprouts, congratulations, you’re pregnant! And if wheat sprouts faster, it’s a girl, but if barley, it’s a boy. In 1963, a small […]

The ethical dilemma of self-driving cars – Patrick Lin

How do self-driving cars “see”? – Sajan Saini

It’s late, pitch dark, and a self-driving car winds down a narrow country road. Suddenly, three hazards appear at the same time. What happens next? Before it can navigate this onslaught of obstacles, the car has to detect them— gleaning enough information about their size, shape, and position, so that its control algorithms can plot […]
