Multi-language video playback using beam forming

submitted by: apryl
This is a multi-language audio demo used at the KAUST SIGGRAPH booth. For the full effect of the audio demonstration, this video was be available for preview in the KAUST booth at SIGGRAPH 2011. The demonstration used beam-forming to control the electroacoustic architecture of dialog in both english and arabic languages spatially in a designated area. Arabic listeners could stand a few feet away from english listeners and watch the same visuals comfortably without hearing the other...

MWV Episode 72 - Jonathan Eisen - Evolvability, the Built Environment and Open Science

submitted by: MicrobeWorld
Jonathan Eisen is an evolutionary biologist, currently working at University of California, Davis and is the academic editor-in-chief of the open-access journal PLoS Biology. On this episode, Jonathan talks about "evolvability," the probability that organisms can invent new functions. To do this, he has been using genome data in conjunction with experimental information to try and understand the mechanisms by which new functions have originated. Another area of interest for Eisen is the...
