4 Ways to Build a Human Company in the Age of Machines (11:14)                    11/15/2016
In the face of artificial intelligence and machine learning, we need a new radical
humanism, says 
Tim Leberecht.  For the self-described "business romantic," this
means designing organizations and workplaces that celebrate authenticity instead
of efficiency and questions instead of answers.  Leberecht proposes four (admittedly
subjective) principles for building beautiful organizations.

The Incredible Inventions of Intuitive AI (15:23)                                                                       02/06/2017
What do you get when you give a design tool a digital nervous system? Computers
that improve our ability to think and imagine, and robotic systems that come up
with (and build) radical new designs for bridges, cars, drones and much more — all
by themselves. Take a tour of the Augmented Age with 
futurist Maurice Conti and
preview a time when robots and humans will work side-by-side to accomplish things
neither could do alone.

The Mystery Box The Incredible Inventions of Intuitive AI(18:02)                             10/16/2016JJ Abrams traces his love for the unseen mystery –- a passion that’s evident in his films
and TV shows, including Lost, Star Trek and the upcoming Star Wars VII — back to its
magical beginnings.

The Next Step in Nanotechnology (9:35)                                                                                        01/11/2017
Every year the silicon computer chip shrinks in size by half and doubles in power,
enabling our devices to become more mobile and accessible.  But what happens when
our chips can't get any smaller?  
George Tulevski researches the unseen and untapped
world of nanomaterials.  His current work: developing chemical processes to compel
billions of carbon nanotubes to assemble themselves into the patterns needed to build
circuits, much the same way natural organisms build intricate, diverse and elegant
structures. Could they hold the secret to the next generation of computing?

Technology hasn't changed love. Here's why (19:05)                                                           09/30/2016
In our tech-driven, interconnected world, we've developed new ways and rules to court
each other, but the fundamental principles of love have stayed the same, says 
anthropologist Helen Fisher.   In this energetic tell-all from the front lines of love, learn
how our faster connections are actually leading to slower, more intimate relationships.  
Watch to the end for a lively discussion with love expert Esther Perel.
