THEME for 2018 TALKS: “The Bigger Picture”: Staying Human in a Digital Age.
THEME DESCRIPTION: Astounding technology is about to become commonplace, and it’s going to change everything. Our annual show will explore the pitfalls and promises of our technology-infused future. Nanotechnology and embedded sensors promise to augment our capabilities; Blockchain and cryptocurrencies could upend the ways we track ownership, distribute commodities, and manage wealth; gene science moves to rewrite the limitations of our heredity; immersive VR and telepresence redefines the real; and robotics, automation, and AI forces a hard rethink of jobs held by man and machine. From the molecular to the grand, the many new ways we’ll engage with technology are creating a changing experience of our very identity. Where radical advancements reconfigure the convergence between our humanity and the technology we wield, we may need to recommit to our search for meaning, joy, profession and purpose.
TEDxMarin 2018 will offer a big picture view of these emerging technology’s, and our coexistence, while bringing insight and wonder to our Bay Area community with thought-provoking ideas how we’ll live, work and thrive in the world to come.
Our 2018 Gathering will include: An indoor/outdoor Attendee Reception catered with passed appetizers by Good Earth Natural Foods. We will have extraordinary wines, a Water Bar, our 2018 Innovator Company Showcase (w/some wow demos), the Live Filming of this years TEDTalks inside the beautiful James Dunn Theater, plus a post-talk Meet the Speakers dessert reception in the Lobby.
