Crosstalks – Where Great Minds Meet

Crosstalks is a quarterly academic talk show, broadcast live in English, brought to you by KTH and Stockholm University. It is a forum for some of their greatest scientists to talk to each other, to international colleagues, to people in other fields and to students about some of the great issues of our day. Not only do great minds meet at Crosstalks – since I’m hosting I get to be there too, representing the non-expert viewer! You can watch the first three talks here, and the website is also where the live broadcast this Thursday will start at 5 PM (CET).

As per usual, we’ll have time for three topics. We’ll discuss the ultimate destiny of man and robot, look at whether and how it is possible to close the global health gap in our lifetimes, and ask some quantum and astrophysicists to explain how their work is changing perceptions on the nature of reality. You’re welcome to join in the conversation on twitter or by Skyping in with questions – there will be instructions on how to do that on the website!

    Hej Johanna!
    Jag skriver förmodligen i helt fel forum nu, men jag ville verkligen höra av mig nu.
    Jag ville bara tacka så väldigt mycket för TV-cirkeln! Både den om Game of Thrones förra året, och om Girls nu i år. Det är fantastiskt roligt, och mysigt igenkännande, att höra era diskussioner!🙂
    Jag hoppas verkligen att TV-cirkeln är ett koncept som kommer att fortsätta (med dig, såklart!) även om detta är det första som jag faktiskt skriver någonstans själv…😉 (Är inte blyg precis, men är inte så hemma på sociala medier)
    Kram Sara
