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!
