Talks/seminars/conferences around Cambridge in February 2014

'The 6 waves of computing' by Dr.Hauser, the founder of Acorn Computer and ARM, was the fur most inspirational talk this month. The idea of 'evidence engine' was really science-fictional and thus amazing to me. This quality is the one Cambridge MBA 'leadership talks' should have provided.

The Evidence Engine in a flip chart
The second best talks were actually two: 'Sex and the brain (in fruit fly!!)' for its astonishingly clear communication and presentation and 'Behavioural Economics and Conflicts of Interest' for its stimulating results of experiments on the effects of information disclosure.
