TEDxBoston 2017

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

Chief Scientist Claudia Perlich will be presenting “Sacred Gifts and Faithful Servants” at TEDxBoston 2017.

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” Albert Einstein

In no field is this quote more relevant today than in data science. AI, machine learning and data-driven models are beginning to penetrate every aspect of our life. But these ‘rational’ tools are only as good as the data and information that fed them. And thus, the crucial ingredient for the creation of useful tools, actionable understandings, and the discovery of our blind spots remains the sacred gift of human intuition!

The event will be livestreamed on
