Director, Center for SETI Research
As the recipient of the 2009 TED prize, Tarter hopes to empower a new generation of SETI enthusiasts. She will discuss her plans to assemble a group of engineers to advise, create and facilitate a system of mass collaboration over the web and incorporate innovative data processing methods. Through this system, Tarter predicts that we will be able to globalize the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence.
