Michael Gainey says:

Who is Leah Avakian? What are her credentials/qualifications? Does TEDx think it's a good idea for people to evaluate the credibility of their sources of information? I do. I Googled Leah Avakian to try to find out more about her and didn't find anything. Should I trust a stranger on the internet (even if she is speaking on a TEDx stage)? A bio in the video description would help.

Good practice for public speaking. We already have fairly good morals & ethics when it comes to the tools we use. Some people use those tools immorally. What do we do with a computer that doesn't save our documents or doesn't connect to the internet or randomly deletes programs it decides aren't necessary ? Answer – it becomes useless and it gets trashed. AI is a tool. It will always be a tool. When it stops being useful, it becomes useless.
