Research that Matters Podcast Series
A 9-part podcast series featuring researchers from Media Design School and Torrens University Australia, who are working towards solving complex global problems and propelling innovation.
The smart phones in our pockets have more computing power than NASA used during the Apollo mission to get to the moon. So, how did we get light years ahead of NASA computers in such a short time?
The answer is: research.
Nothing has shaped modern life more than research. Everything from that personal computer at your fingertips to the anaesthetic at the dentist to stop the pain has been ushered in by major research breakthroughs. A world without research is a world without change and innovation. Without it, we’d never know of medical technologies like the MRI, or that making time for play expands our mind.
Research that Matters is a brand new 9-part podcast series. You’ll meet researchers from Torrens University Australia whose curiosity is driving innovation, which is making the world a better place. From health solutions, to workplace culture, to virtual reality and artificial intelligence – these researchers are committed to connecting the world for good.
We’ll take you behind the curtain to hear what drives their passion, and the impact their work has on all of us. All the episodes feature researchers and are available on the Research that Matters website or on Spotify, Apple, or Google.
