Abstract:

"The best way to predict the future is to invent it." Alan Kay not only coined this favorite tech-world adage, but has proven its truth several times. A true polymath and inventor, he has combined engineering brilliance with knowledge of child development, epistemology, molecular biology, and more. One of the true luminaries of personal computing, Alan Kay conceived of laptops and graphical interfaces years before they were realized. At XeroxPARC, Apple, HP, and Disney, he developed tools for improving the mind. Kay envisions better techniques for teaching kids by using computers to illustrate experience in many ways--mathematically and scientifically--that only computers can in this TEDTalk.
