We have Dr. Ogi Ogas and Dr. Sai Gaddam on today speaking on their book A Billion Wicked Thoughts

Dr. Ogi Ogas received his PhD in computational neuroscience from Boston University, where he designed mathematical models of learning, memory, and vision.

Dr. Sai Gaddam conducted his doctoral research at Boston University on biologically inspired models of machine learning. He collaborated with Hewlett-Packard to design nanoscale processors that mimic noisy, massively parallel brain computations...

In a stroke of ingenuity, Ogas and Gaddam circumvent the deepest limitation of standard psychological surveys: that they merely tap undergraduates’ socially acceptable responses, a flaw nowhere more damaging than in the touchy realm of sexuality. A Billion Wicked Thoughts is a goldmine of information about this hugely important topic, and, not surprisingly, gripping and sometimes disturbing reading.”
--Steven Pinker, Harvard College Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of How the Mind Works and The Blank Slate
