Osamu Sakura | TEDxTokyo 2014
As a science researcher who questions science as a social foundation, Osamu Sakura takes a unique look at the emotional impact of science and technology. His goal? Examine science in a way that makes us all a little happier. For example, while researching the widespread human fear of radiation, Osamu studied the evolutionary foundation of human risk recognition and communicated with low-dose radiation exposure experts and community members to create a bridge between our emotions and scientific phenomena. In 2011, Osamu received a Science Agora Prize for his work in promoting a philosophy of science communication. Through his books and research activities, he gives us a cue to continually re-examine our human connection with science.
