Protecting Sight #301: How AI can save our humanity. LRIs, papilledema, & adventures in astrophysics. Getting ready for #ComedyNightICC!

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, podcast, or significant work.

Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Kai-Fu Lee: How AI can save our humanity. “AI is massively transforming our world, but there’s one thing it cannot do: love. In a visionary talk, computer scientist Kai-Fu Lee details how the US and China are driving a deep learning revolution — and shares a blueprint for how humans can thrive in the age of AI by harnessing compassion and creativity. “AI is serendipity,” Lee says. “It is here to liberate us from routine jobs, and it is here to remind us what it is that makes us human.” ” (

A remarkable Ted Talk.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – Simplified Technique for LRIs. Nice technique.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Papilledema.

Dr. Lee’s 450+ neuro-ophthalmology reviews are around 5 minutes each. Perfect for the busy clinician & trainee. I plan to watch one a day, from oldest to newest.

4. Episode 108: Thomas Zurbuchen: Adventures in Astrophysics — “Thomas Zurbuchen is currently Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA, where he seeks answers to big questions about the universe and our place in it. Previously, he was a professor of space science and aerospace engineering at the University of Michigan and a founding director of its Center for Entrepreneurship. In this episode, Thomas and Shane discuss the origin of his passion for astrophysics, commercial spaceflight, exciting experiments going on at the International Space Station, the challenges of space flight, how he makes decisions, whether humans will ever live on Mars, and more.”

The perfect episode for a one-hour drive. Engaging and filled with pearls on decision making.
