Welcome to my daily learning journal. My daily goal is to watch one Ted Talk and one cataract surgery. I also plan to read one journal article and read/listen to a book chapter, short story or significant work.
Here’s today’s list:
1. Ted Talk – Cynthia Breazeal. The rise of personal robots. (Dec 2010) “Cynthia Breazeal wonders: Why can we use robots on Mars, but not in our living rooms? The key, she says, is in training robots to interact with people. Now she dreams up and builds robots that teach, learn — and play. Watch for amazing demo footage of a new interactive game for kids.” (ted.com)
This was a trending Ted Talk, and its timing (2010) allows us to enjoy Breazeal’s prescient views. Another mention of Leonardo da Vinci!
2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – Traumatic cataract with bulging capsule. Great pearls.
3. Journal article – Kasi SK, Adam MK, Ehmann DS. Bilateral Retinal Problem in a Patient With Alport Syndrome. JAMA Ophthalmol. 2017;135(9):995–996. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2017.0036
