Cool Science Radio - November 5, 2015

forcst.jpg

 Our first guest this morning is Dan Gardner, who is the coauthor of Superforecasting: The Art and             Science of Prediction. In this groundbreaking and accessible book, Tetlock and Gardner show us how we can learn from an elite group of volunteers that participated in a forecasting tournament. Our second guests are Alessandra Angelucci, Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Science and Valerio Pascucci, Professor, from the School of Computing, both guests from the University of Utah. The animal brain is so complex, it would take a supercomputer and vast amounts of data to create a detailed 3-D model of the billions of neurons that power it. But computer scientists and a professor of ophthalmology at the University of Utah have developed software that maps out a monkey’s brain and more easily creates a 3-D model, providing a more complete picture of how the brain is wired.
