Humanizing Technology: The Intersection of Physical and Digital

In essence, I’m the living metaphor for this conference. At the day’s end, we are humans living in a digital world. Behind every algorithm is a human that lives, breathes, feels and thinks. And behind every agile marketing outreach and every digital journey is an ‘Amanda’ – a being, craving to be heard, understood, and included to optimize my personal experience. Love what you do. Be real. Invent and re-invent. Let’s regain control and flexibility in our fragmented word by expanding our digital backbones and keeping the human experience in the forefront.

Mobility in its many forms: Inspiring words from the TEDCity2.0 Salon

In the past 30 years, 300 million people in China have left rural areas and moved to cities. Which means that a lot of thinking about the future of cities is happening here. At the TEDCity 2.0 Salon — an event held in Chengdu, China, on November 12, in partnership with the Michelin Corporate Foundation — the theme of mobility in cities ran throughout the day.
