TED Talks | A baby’s astonishing journey into word-formulation

In our busy world of today, information is a mere click away. Both the useful and wasteful kind. The problem is that we are overloaded with information, and sifting through the good and bad requires another time-consuming task, that we never get around to do.

But the right information can be invaluable knowledge, empowering your mind to see new ideas and possibilities. If you can carve out and invest just 15 minutes of your day to enrich your mind, while staring at your computer, I’d highly recommend watching TED Talks. Vastly informative, thought-provocative, and entertaining video podcasts that are all under 20 minutes.

From some of the most intriguing minds of the world! From biomedical scientists to baritone opera singers, to chefs and comedians, any TED Talkwill leave you better informed. After all, knowledge imparted is wisdom gained.

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.
