Flynn Coleman: Speech Topics


① THE FUTURE OF WORK AND PURPOSE | ② A HUMAN ALGORITHM | ③ TO INNOVATE IS HUMAN

① The Future of Work and Purpose


Automation, computerization, and AI will be the biggest disruptors in the history of our labor economies, eclipsing the colossal societal shifts of the Industrial Revolution in a fraction of the time. We will need to learn how to work in partnership with smart machines and to reconfigure how we work with each other, imagining whole new occupations. AI may take over many of our jobs, but it can also free us up for more creative endeavors and imaginative pursuits. In this talk, Flynn will take a deep dive into the future of work and purpose, and how we can thrive and flourish amid accelerating technological change.

② A Human Algorithm: How AI Is Redefining Who We Are


The Age of Intelligent Machines is upon us, and Flynn examines the immense impact intelligent technology will have on humanity and how we can thrive as we move into our brave new world. The proliferation of fast-moving technologies have the potential to transform how we work, our health and well-being, alleviate poverty and suffering, and reveal the mysteries of intelligence and consciousness. She advocates for inviting a diverse group of voices to participate in designing our intelligent machines so we instill values, ethics, and morals into our robots, algorithms, and other forms of AI.

③ To Innovate Is Human


To innovate, to create, and to tell stories is to be human. These are also essential skills in today's information landscape, and are some of our most powerful tools for sharing our vision and connecting with ourselves and others. Storytelling is built into our DNA, and curiosity opens the door to discovery. In this talk, using themes ranging from philosophy to mindfulness to behavioral economics, we’ll explore the immense and illuminative power of creativity and innovation, as well as actionable ways to tap into our innate capabilities to imagine, to tell our stories, and to create a brighter world.
