Brand New on Science Time- my interview with Dr. Peter Jansen, the man who brings us the Open Source Tricorder, 3-D Printer designs and Artificial Intelligence that learn like infants do. Great for Trekkies, Futurists, and Science Lovers everywhere!
" I grew up in Canada with parents who were (and are) very generous even through very tough times, and very strongly believe that life is about bettering ones self and helping the people and the world around us. Accessibility and science education is a huge part of the Tricorder project, and I would feel incredibly honoured to be able to look back in 20 or 30 years and see that I had contributed to kids being able to learn more about their worlds, and make positive change."
