The cells in your body are like computer software: they’re “programmed” to carry out specific functions at specific times. If we can better understand this process, we could unlock the ability to reprogram cells ourselves, says computational biologist Sara-Jane Dunn. In a talk from the cutting-edge of science, she explains how her team is studying embryonic stem cells to gain a new understanding of the biological programs that power life — and develop “living software” that could transform medicine, agriculture and energy.

you think making 6 figures coming out of college is that easy?
I’m going to show you all the expectations and reality of what it’s actually like to be a software engineer. Of course, this is a work from home edition so it doesn’t exactly reflect what it’s like to be in the office. Hope you enjoy this video!
Im gesellschaftlichen und politischen Bereich bahnen sich – für jedermann deutlich – gewaltige Umbrüche an. Psychologen zufolge dürfte der Zusammenbruch bestehender Strukturen kaum ohne Auswirkungen auf die menschliche Psyche bleiben. Experten prognostizieren gar einen Anstieg angsteinflößender Elemente. Gibt es einen Ausweg? Die Psychotherapeutin Annegret Hallanzy hat eine Landkarte der menschlichen Bedürfnisse erarbeitet – die „Software der Seele“. Ihre Anwendung, hofft Hallanzy, könnte das menschliche Miteinander für immer verändern…

Talking about the LACIR research on Adaptive Optics. Showing some cool hardware, seriously kickass software, and sprinkled with a bit of CG.
Breaking the mould of boring co-op reports, the UVic admins were NOT expecting this. I got an award for most innovative demo at the Work Opportunities show ‘n’ tell. I’m proud as heck because all the software, computer graphics, direction, narration, and editing is all done by yours truly.
The LACIR research lab was probably the coolest experience I’ve had yet, and well rewarded! I won an NSERC undergraduate award, flew to France and Scotland, and really got steeped deep in high-technology research.
I won’t forget Colin Bradley’s generosity, trust, and leadership. He’s one hell of a great research director. But alas, I was bitten hard by the entrepreneurship bug and left to start CellMap.

RISC processors kept things simple, but when do you need to make your hardware more complicated and when can you leave it to the software? We asked ARM’s Jem Davies.
