The birth of a word

MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language — so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son’s life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch “gaaaa” slowly turn into “water.” Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn.

wooow! I just saw the video and it seems fantasy what the technology is capable of doing these days….supporting a genius idea that produced results of absolutely pure value for the entire human race!

I will rewatch it and post more impressions and comments later on…I really need to sleep now :p…I’m waking up in 5 h max!
