TED Talk on how language is learned

http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/en/deb_roy_the_birth_of_a_word.html

This was interesting and I don't know how to embed this properly.
Some of their data looks like the Matrix

For some reason if you click the link it won't work, but if you copy/paste it works fine

Your link didn't work for me. Try this one:

Oh wait, here's the video (busy watching it now - thanks):



One of my favourite TED talks is probably Ken Robinson on education (the first one; the follow-up talk is also quite good). Though I think most people have seen it by now...but for those that haven't.

Re: TED Talk on how language is learned

Those Wordscapes were a fascinating idea. I'm quite sure that there will soon be such interactivity between sound and form, where sound can dictate feasible landscapes or other forms; or vice-a-versa where forms can dictate pleasing & appealing sounds.

I suppose much like an advanced visualisation application, but where either graphic or visual can be the input, and the output (the alternate of what the input was) seems just as purposeful or intended as the input, rather than a second-rate accompaniment.

Re: TED Talk on how language is learned

A lot of it was clearly just data frequency and not "Hey guys, this looks cool!"

It's a very unique experiment that uses technology in some pretty exciting ways
