Quantum-computation pioneer Michael Nielsen says we are at the dawn of the most dramatic change in science in more than 300 years, with powerful new cognitive tools enabled by the Internet greatly accelerating scientific collaboration and discovery. Nielsen, author of Reinventing Discovery, examines this unprecedented era of networked science, and how scientists are using the Internet to expand our problem-solving ability and increase our combined brainpower. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
