Kevin Slavin – Why Understanding The Genetic Make-Up of Everything is Mind Blowing
Why are we trying to fly to Mars, when outside our window there is an amazing ecosystem of everything that we know next to nothing about? What happens when you turn your most powerful machines and minds to understanding the genetic make up of everything? This conversation is, just like the study of our planet, will make you stare in amazement, laugh uncontrollably and sit in awe at what we have recently discovered, and what we are yet to know.
Kevin Slavin is a rare individual. On stage he has presented Ted Talks on algorithms and stock markets, which has been viewed over 2 million times. He has been a game developer, founded a spatially aware technology platform company, and now has been focused on helping humans make sense of the smallest matter in the world – metagenomics.
We could go on and on, because this conversation does that. It does it because the topic is so damn interesting, it was impossible to cut anything. Listening to the end will reward the patient listener.
