    19: The Loneliest Competition In The World

    26/03/2020 Duración: 17min

    The Vendee Globe – an around-the-world, solo sailing competition – is considered one of the most grueling sporting events of the modern age. As such, it presents an intriguing opportunity to solve one of the most vexing challenges facing technological innovation: the “remote problem.” AI, advanced sensing and automation are becoming commonplace in industrial environments, leading to huge boosts in productivity and efficiency. But moving those complex systems off of the factory floor and onto a solitary boat sailing in the middle of the ocean creates an entirely new set of challenges. Listen in as champion racer Alex Thomson and Marcus Weldon, President of Nokia Bell Labs and Corporate CTO of Nokia, discuss the potential of their unique collaboration.

    So skilled is Harry Yeff - better known as champion beatboxer Reeps One - at his craft that he’s prompted one neuroscientist to note: “[he] can make at least three sounds simultaneously [with his mouth] -- and theoretically you're not supposed to be able to do that.” Having been the subject of scientific studies since 2012, Reeps One continues to hone his craft and explore the outer limits of what is possible with the human voice. Now, as a Bell Labs Artist In Residence and collaborator, he’s training a sophisticated deep learning artificial intelligence system to beatbox – setting the scene for a most unusual duet. We get the full, behind the scenes scoop in our latest episode. To learn more about Reeps One and this groundbreaking journey, check out the recently released, six-part web documentary entitled “We Speak Music.” Future Human is a presentation of Nokia Bell Labs, produced by Audiation.fm.

    04/10/2018 Duración: 16min

    If – like me – your high school/college summers were filled with menial office work, flipping burgers or babysitting, well, you did it wrong. In this episode, we check in with a few fearless students who spent their summer on the Nokia Bell Lab campus in Murray Hill, New Jersey. Instead of slathering sunscreen on toddlers or beating a malfunctioning printer to death, these folks were: teaching robots how to navigate buildings; pressure testing materials that will enable factories to operate more efficiently; enhancing the capabilities of potentially life-saving wearables; improving the technology that powers facial recognition; and turning live concerts into a personal surround sound experience. And they’re just getting started. Future Human is a presentation of Nokia Bell Labs, produced by audiation.fm.
