Share By Tenzin Gyatso, the Dalai Lama This article is based on a talk given by the Dalai Lama at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience on November 12, in Washington DC The last few decades have witnessed tremendous advances in the scientific understanding of the human brain and the human body as a whole. This has resulted in unforeseen technological possibilities of even manipulating the very codes of life, thereby giving rise to the likelihood of creating entirely new realities for humanity as a whole.

Conference Evaluation Your opinion and comments are very important for the improvement and future planning of the conference. We kindly ask you to spend a few minutes to fill-in the on-line anonymous survey through the link: The Art of Tangible Bits by: Hiroshi Ishii Jerome B.
HCI International promises to be an unforgettable cluster of high quality international scientific events, and an ideal occasion to come to contact with the rapidly evolving ICT market in the world.
HCI International and the affiliated Conferences explore a wide variety of new hot topics which reflect and contribute to a paradigm shift towards ubiquitous interaction, intelligent environments and interactive technologies supporting virtually any aspect of human life and activities in a global and social perspective.
An impressive number of around individuals from 61 countries are participating in this truly international in scope event, where the work of the world s foremost leaders in the field is presented.
We are privileged that Prof. Hiroshi Ishii has joined us as the keynote speaker at the opening plenary session. Furthermore, during this session, fourteen awards will be conferred.
The winners will receive a plaque and a certificate. Among these twelve best papers, one paper will be selected as Best HCI International Conference paper, and will receive a golden award and a certificate.
Finally, the Best Poster will also receive a plaque award and a certificate. I would like to thank each and every one of you for your valuable contribution towards the success of this Conference, and to wish you a professionally rewarding and socially enjoyable stay in Las Vegas.
Constantine Stephanidis The 16th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction will be held jointly with the affiliated Conferences in Creta Maris Resort and Convention Centre, Heraklion, Crete, Greece, June It will cover a broad spectrum of themes related to Human- Computer Interaction, including theoretical issues, methods, tools, processes and case studies in HCI design, as well as novel interaction techniques, interfaces and applications.
The Proceedings will be published by Springer. Whereas today s mainstream Human Computer Interaction HCI and Design research address functional concerns the needs of users, practical applications, and usability evaluation Tangible Bits is a vision driven by concepts.
This is because today s technologies will become obsolete in one year, and today s applications will be replaced in 10 years, but true visions we believe can last longer than years. Tangible Bits seeks to realize seamless interfaces between humans, digital information, and the physical environment by giving physical form to digital information, making bits directly manipulable and perceptible.
Our goal is to invent new design media for artistic expression as well as for scientific analysis, taking advantage of the richness of human senses and skills as developed through our lifetime of interaction with the physical world as well as the computational reflection enabled by real-time sensing and digital feedback.
I will present the trajectory of our vision-driven research and a variety of interaction design projects that were presented and exhibited in Media Arts, Design, and Science communities including: His team seeks to change the painted bits of GUIs to tangible bits by giving physical form to digital information.

New theories in neuroscience suggest consciousness is an intrinsic property of everything, just like gravity. That development opens a world of opportunity for collaboration between Buddhists and.
Book Report The book, Consciousness at the Crossroads: Conversion with Delai Lama on Brain Science and Buddhism addresses vital questions that have caused differences between Western science and religious over many vetconnexx.com meetings play a key role in highlighting significant impressions and views taken by Buddhism and Western science in the presentation of different matters.
I found this book to be a bit of a disappointment. I suppose if you want an over-view of scientific thought on the brain, then this might be interesting. The Dalai Lama mostly asked questions and the scientists spoke about science.
Only once did a scientist ask the Dalai Lama a point about Buddhism, and then it was only to set him up to be debunked/5.
