As a Principal Research Scientist at Apple and President of the Society of American Magicians, Silverman draws on his background in science, technology and cognitive psychology to take magic from mere "tricks" to creating something scientifically meaningful. Silverman will discuss the interaction between science and magic, demonstrating how magic can help us understand more about how the human mind works and how science can be used to improve the illusion of magic.
