Today the EdLab will host Dr. Vivienne Ming (for the 2nd time!)! Dr. Ming was featured as a part of the NewLearningTimes.com Profiles stream (read her Profile here) and will participate in our GroundBREAKERS series of video interviews and podcasts during her visit today! (Thanks team video!) Dr. Ming and her wife will be keynote speakers at SXSWedu this year!
This quote from her site (linked above) really stands-out for me regarding her work and focus on human potential:
"It's a philosophy that Vivienne Ming refined as a doctoral student at Carnegie Mellon University. Now the theoretical neuroscientist — involved in research, entrepreneurial technology and philanthropy — has been named one of Inc. Magazine's 10 Women to Watch in Tech in 2013. 'All of my endeavors are motivated by a desire to maximize human potential,' said Ming. 'It's a big dream, better suited to science fiction than the lab or the board room. But CMU inspired me to try anyhow.'" - CMU, "Revolutionary Potential"
