Magic and Intelligence - a wonderful partnership
What do Harry Houdini and James Bond have in common?
The world of magic and the world of espionage are both associated with deception. Magic and Intelligence - a wonderful partnership focuses on the surprising link between magic and intelligence-gathering and explains why the human brain is so susceptible to deception and how the world's leading espionage services are harnessing the principles of magic in their aid. During the 90-minute long lecture, you will discover how the sawing-an-assistant-in-half trick served CIA officers during the Cold War and learn how an innocent object like a thimble can be a powerful tool in covering your tracks.
You are in for a fascinating experience that is simply... magical.
