Beau Lotto was our TED talk presenter at Tuesday’s meeting. He is a professor of neuroscience who utilizes color games to spotlight what you can’t normally see: how your brain works. He uses color and our perception of what we see to emphasize why we see what we do in order to create the possibility and agency in deciding what to perceive next. In his TED talk Lotto states: “I have pretty much two aims: to create doubt through the awareness of perception, and to create space for holding that uncertainty. At its core, that’s what science is: it celebrates not knowing in an attempt to find better questions.” We often operate on “autopilot” and miss significant awareness of our sightings. Lotto’s work focuses on the biological, computational and psychological mechanisms of perception. He has conducted and presented research on human and bumblebee perception and behavior for more than 25 years, and his interest in education, business and the arts has led him into entrepreneurship and engaging the public with science.
