Most of a person's genetic risk for common diseases such as diabetes, asthma and hardening of the arteries appears to lie in the shadowy part of the human genome once disparaged as "junk DNA."

Only recently have scientists accorded chimpanzees, so closely related to humans we can share blood transfusions, the dignity of having a mind. But now, increasingly, researchers who study octopuses are convinced that these boneless, alien animals-creatures whose ancestors diverged from the lineage that would lead to ours roughly 500 to 700 million years ago-have developed intelligence, emotions, and individual personalities. Their findings are challenging our understanding of consciousness itself.

While the world goes wacky over Iran and how it might have nuclear weapons someday, Syria, with Iran's help has deadly chemical and maybe biological weapons. The worst part, the west can't bomb the sites as it would create toxic clouds that could kill of people.

Kevin Slavin argues that we're living in a world designed for -- and increasingly controlled by -- algorithms. In this riveting talk from TEDGlobal, he shows how these complex computer programs determine: espionage tactics, stock prices, movie scripts, and architecture. And he warns that we are writing code we can't understand, with implications we can't control.
