TED (a) (from TED.com)

David Gallo shows jaw-dropping footage of amazing sea creatures, including a shape-shifting cuttlefish, a pair of fighting squid, and a mesmerizing gallery of bioluminescent fish that light up the blackest depths of the ocean. He focuses on the work of two scientists: Edith Widder at the Ocean Research & Conservation Association, and Roger  Hanlon at the Marine Biological Lab.

TED (b) (from TED.com)

Armed with a backhoe and a handful of markers, Deborah Gordon studies ant colonies in the Arizona desert. She asks: How do these chitinous creatures get down to business - and even multitask when they need to - with no language, memory or visible leadership? Her answers could lead to a better understanding of all complex systems, from the brain to the Web.
