How to read an invisible classic | Gregory Heyworth | TEDxUM
Description:

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences.

What if there were a technology to recover these lost and unknown texts? Imagine worldwide how a trove of hundreds of thousands of previously unreadable and unknown works could change our knowledge of the past! What new classics would we discover that could rewrite the canons of literature, history, music, mathematics, philosophy, political science? Or more provocatively, how could they rewrite our cultural identities, building new bridges between cultures and people?
