CSE’s Zoran Popovic on CNN’s “The Big Idea”

A terrific interview on CNN’s “The Big Idea” with UW CSE’s Zoran Popovic.  Participants in the Foldit protein folding online game had recently solved a problem that had eluded scientists for a decade.

The GRAIL internal chatter following appearance of the video:

Zoran Popovic:  “Disheveled hair and tired mumbling after staying up most of the night with a new grant proposal.”

Steve Seitz:  “Great interview! Are you in a prison cell?”

Zoran:  “No that’s my cleaned up office (or at least a cleaned up corner).”

Brian Curless:  “Can you give an interview in my office next? It needs some spiffing up.”
