Session Moderated By: Elliott Berger
In this luncheon talk for a virtual conference we will screen a TED talk by MIT researcher Deb Roy who wanted to understand how his infant son learned language — so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son's life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch "gaaaa" slowly turn into "water." He then goes on to apply his methodology to examining communications, public media, and the interactions that arise. His talk contains astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn and potential questions about how that may affect society. Following the video, there will be a moderated live audience discussion.

Learning Objectives:
As a result of this Continuing Education Activity, readers will be able to:
1) Explain what Deb Roy meant by feedback loops influencing both the subject (baby) and the environment (adults).
2) Describe how millions of data points can be represented graphically
3) Apply Deb Roy’s techniques of big data acquisition to suggest how to prevent noise-induced hearing loss.
