Closing The Communication Gap
We live in a time where, despite amazing advances in technology, clear communication seems more difficult than ever. Finding common ground and establishing a common language is harder in an increasingly isolated digital world. For professionals immersed in their fields, it is all too easy to forget the skills and empathy needed to break down complex information for an outside audience. In this talk, Jorge Cham will relay his experiences helping scientists and researchers, perhaps one of the most isolated groups of professionals, communicate what they do and why they do it to the general public, and will show that even Quantum Physics and Microbiology are explainable with the right skills and the right attitude.
