As a whole, society has never gotten worse off from technological disruption, yet ewe are scared out of our minds of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Most people don’t understand AI, but it will never exist and it’s actually so much better than that. A Minnesota boy at home in the mountains, when Charlie is not teaching his nine and two year olds how to ski powder he is using mathematics to tell computers how to discover patterns in data. He believes that by sharing information on computer science, we are all better off. He also thinks that if you only give him the chance he can teach you any statistical concept and that you’ll walk away actually thinking positively about math. Charlie has co-founded two software product companies based on artificial intelligence while a PhD student at CSU, in the Real Estate FinTech and Healthcare spaces, while failing a handful of others. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
