Chris Gerdes video on fast cars achieves elevation
When Stanford embarked on its homegrown TEDxStanford effort in May, the objective was to “share important Stanford discoveries and innovations with the world far beyond campus,” says MELINDA SACKS, director of media initiatives in the Office of the Vice President for Public Affairs. That plan has materialized with the posting of one of the May 19 event’s videos on TED.com. The video features J. CHRISTIAN GERDES, associate professor of mechanical engineering and a senior fellow at the Precourt Institute for Energy, discussing the autonomous car.
“The posting of Professor Chris Gerdes’ talk on TED.com will spread this breakthrough work to a tremendous global audience. We look forward to more collaboration between Stanford and TED,” says Sacks.
