Love them or hate them, you have to admit that Google has been a regular source of innovation throughout the years.

So it should come as no surprise that Google fosters creativity in their employees by regularly hosting talks from researchers in a wide variety of fields ranging from current affairs, science, engineering, humanities, business, law, entertainment, medicine, and the arts.

In keeping with Google's usual culture, they post these talks on YouTube at a rate of about two each week. The top three most viewed talks? “Sex on the Internet,” with 1,492,499 views; “How to count all human carbon,” with 228,633 views; and “jQuery,” with 189,719 views. The three highest rated videos, on the other hand, are “Nerdfighters: Insider view from a YouTube persona,” “Copyright regime vs. civil liberties,” and “Energy from thorium: A nuclear waste burning liquid salt thorium reactor.”

In this video, doctoral candidate Bradley Voytek from the University of California, Berkeley highlights how advances in computational processing have improved data analysis, and discusses the computational factors that are impeding the progress of neuroscience.
