How to reach full human potential: Włodzisław Duch at TEDxPoznań

Uniwersytet Miko?aja Kopernika, Wydzia? Fizyki, Astronomii i Informatyki Stosowanej How to reach full human potential: take care of the brain / Jak w pe?ni rozwin?? potencja? cz?owieka? Czas zaj?? si? m?zgami Newborns have the potential to learn anything that humans may learn. This includes basic perceptual level (hearing speech, natural sounds, visual objects recognition), learning spoken and sign languages and learning other higher cognitive functions. Although the ultimate level of competence achievable by a child is probably determined by the genes it is safe to assume that the full potential for development is rarely achieved. Our goal is to investigate the possibility of creating devices and environments that will monitor infant's development, warn about potential problems, provide specific interactions and direct cues that should encourage optimal development at the perceptual and cognitive level, and discuss possibilities for the follow-up studies. Active learning embodied in cognitive toys and intelligent environments should help to achieve full development of inborn potential. We are building an infant research lab that will make it possible. Imagine a world in which people could communicate without problems and even adults learn languages easily. A world in which developmental abnormalities related to speech and reading would largely vanish. A world much more rich in subtle sensory experiences. A world in which the potential of each child would always fully develop, and natural curiosity will grow ... We just have to start quite early, adding structure to the development of the infant's brain in a natural, effortless way. This should be possible with cognitive toys and interactive environments! About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
