Intelligent Robots and the Story of Light

I was immensely proud to be asked to speak at TEDxCardiff (a local branch of TED) earlier in 2014. Here is the video of my talk. I think it's come out rather well. I hope you get a sense of how much fun I was having!

It's on a similar theme to a lecture I gave a couple of years ago for Pythagoras' Trousers Lecture Series, called Telescopes in Strange places. Although I blogged a transcript of that at the time, I recently re-blogged it as part of Global Astronomy Month 2014, run by Astronomers Without Borders.
