TEDxUHasselt 2018: Moonshot Thinking by Isabelle Ramaekers
Last month, on March 24th, 2018, I attended my first TEDx event called « TEDxUHasselt » in Belgium and I discovered ideas worth spreading. Those ideas raised from « Moonshot thinking » (innovative thinking), often linked to new technologies. During this event, 16 speakers from different countries were present but here are the ones that I wanted to share with you…
Steven Latré – When will my car be driveless?
Steven Latré, leader of the Antwerp IDLab research group and Belgian authority on the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence (AI) talked about how research and development will evolve on driverless cars. He said that he has no doubt that soon AI will have an extremely valuable impact on our lives. What do you think? Read more…
Robin Marx – Internet on Mars
Dr. Jan Van Den Bergh – Will you be working with robots?
Dr. Jan Van Den Bergh explained to us why we should work with robots. We often hear this: « robots will steal our jobs ». Do we need to be scared? He explains that, instead of speculating what can be the worst outcome of these machines, we should just accept that they are different and use their strengths to our advantage. Read more…
Other speakers, who came up with moonshot thinking ideas were not obviously linked with technology but they also caught my attention. Like Karolien Notebaert, who talked about hacking your own brain with mindfulness and Michiel Vandeweert about how to enjoy life to the fullest.
It was a very interesting afternoon with a lot of inspirational people!
