Riding The Exponential Wave Of Change
What do nanotechnology, bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, and robotics have in common, and, more importantly, what do they have to do with you? Join Kaila Colbin for a startling look at the dramatic implications of exponential technologies, and some insight into how we might better prepare ourselves to adapt and thrive in a dynamically changing world.
Kaila Colbin spearheaded the hugely successful SingularityU New Zealand and Australia Summits, introducing more than 2,000 people to exponential technologies and their impact on humanity.
She is also a co-founder and Chair of the non-profit Ministry of Awesome, the starting point for early-stage entrepreneurs in Christchurch; the Curator and Licensee for TEDxChristchurch in New Zealand and TEDxScottBase in Antarctica; Chair of the New York-based culinary school Natural Gourmet Institute; Deputy Chair of CORE Education; and a Director of ChristchurchNZ.
Her purpose in life is to be an uplifting presence.
