A Better Way to Talk about Love
Rating

In love, we fall. We're struck, we're crushed, we swoon. We burn with passion. Love makes us crazy and makes us sick. Our hearts ache, and then they break. Talking about love in this way fundamentally shapes how we experience it, says writer Mandy Len Catron. In this talk for anyone who's ever felt crazy in love, Catron highlights a different metaphor for love that may help us find more joy and less suffering in it.

The Birth of a Word

MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language -- so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son's life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch "gaaaa" slowly turn into "water." Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn. Deb Roy studies how children learn language, and designs machines that learn to communicate in human-like ways. On sabbatical from MIT Media Lab, he's working with the AI company Bluefin Labs.

Eveline Crone: The rebellious teenager

Eveline starts by asking who remembers being an adolescent. All hands rise in the air. She then shares a bold statement: “Today’s youth is out of control.” But is it? Jumping back a few centuries in history shows us that Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet were already considered rebellious in their days, and even ancient Greek philosophers assumed their youngsters behaved badly. Although every generation is challenged with new situations, adolescents show comparable traits over time.
