Presentation Innovation

Great speakers hold the power to captivate and inspire. This collection highlights speakers who go one step further -- and innovate on the form itself.

Doctor and researcher Hans Rosling's eye-catching statistics don't stand still: they mutate, morph and crackle with color. Medical illustrator David Bolinsky takes us into the nano-scale workings of living cells with animated computer graphics that mesmerize. And Internet art wizard Jonathan Harris' ongoing study of emotion in the blogosphere turns web stories into sunrays, whirlpools and fireworks.

Don't miss Blaise Aguera y Arcas' debut of Photosynth, an astonishing web application that can recognize the content of photographs and stitch them into three-dimensional tapestries. And make sure to catch computer scientist Jeff Han's enthusiastic demo of his new multi-touch user interface -- it will change the way we interact with computers.
