TEDx Suffolk University Talks 2017
THE OUTSOURCED MIND | RENEE RICHARDSON GOSLINE
We can’t remember any numbers without our cell phones and have difficulty driving without Waze. We increasingly rely on technology to perform basic cognitive tasks, and this choice is becoming more automatic and less conscious. We assume technology improves our choices. But does it? A series of experiments will be used to examine the topic, leaving the viewer with the question: when do I assume greater rationality from technology, and how does that affect my expectations about my own behavior?
THE NETWORKED ECONOMY | MICHAEL NEECE
WHY BET ON EMERGING TECH MARKETS | MARJO KOIVISTO

THE EMERGING SPACE ECONOMY | JUSTIN PARK
ACTIONABLE LEGACY | JODI-TATIANA CHARLES
I was raised with a family that taught many lessons and were keen on leaving one’s legacy for the next generation. My life has always been about leaving a legacy behind, through the years I have realized that living a well lived life will be the base of that legacy and in order to do that, I must take action! Living an actionable life is the base of my first Tedx talk, giving you a taste of my life thus far.
HOW A.I. WILL MAKE US MORE HUMAN | EMILY BURNS
Learnivore founder, Emily Burns, considers the future impact of A.I. on our humanity, and how it may function as a catalyst that creates a renaissance of creativity and connectedness—or as an opiate that lets us slide into oblivion.
SHOULD WE WORRY ABOUT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE? | DANIEL DIPPOLD
Computers already play games such as Super Mario Bros or chess better then humans do. But can they understand emotions and interact with humans? Or even become smarter than the human race? In his insightful talk, 22 year-old Daniel Dippold shows how a computer plays Super Mario and discovers the rules all by itself. He explains that society has not clearly defined what AI is yet and appeals urgently to the viewers by suggesting an open and broader discussion on the philosophical and ethical aspects of AI.

COKA, the 21 year-old Ecuadorian songwriter & producer, performs some acoustic versions of his songs from his upcoming EP. These talk about people that stand out from the crowd through their use of imagination as escapism from their daily routine.
