Communication is the most important skill for personal and professional success. In this talk, Danish Dhamani discusses how overcoming your fear of public speaking is key to leading a fulfilling life and unlocking your true potential. Danish’s vision is to empower everyone around the world to overcome their fear of public speaking and to become a better communicator. As a first generation immigrant, for whom English is a second language, the fear of public speaking haunted Danish throughout his early life. By constant practicing and coaching, he soon realized that people are not born public speakers; instead public speaking is a learn-able skill. This is what inspired Danish to create Orai, a mobile app that uses artificial intelligence to improve your speaking ability. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
Should science and society welcome ‘the singularity’ – the idea of the hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence surpasses human intelligence? Panelists: Harry Shum (Microsoft Research EVP of Tech), Max Tegmark (Cosmologist, MIT) Stuart Russell (Prof. of Computer Science, UC Berkeley) and Ray Kurzweil (Futurist, Google Director of Engineering). Moderator: Margaret Boden (Prof. of Cognitive Science, Uni. of Sussex). For more information on the Nobel Week Dialogue, visit http://www.nobelweekdialogue.org. This debate is from the 2015 edition of the meeting, held in Gothenburg, Sweden on 9 Dec.
During the in-studio portion of our episode, “The Future of Humanity with Elon Musk,” Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye and co-host Chuck Nice discussed artificial intelligence and Musk’s concern that super-intelligent robots will turn us into their pets. They look at different levels of artificial intelligence: artificial narrow intelligence, artificial general intelligence (like IBM’s Watson), and artificial super intelligence, where the real concerns lie. Find out why Neil and Bill are not worried by doomsday scenarios highlighted in movies like “The Terminator,” “Colossus: The Forbin Project,” and “War Games,” or by the changes embodied in Ray Kurzweil’s concept of “The Singularity.” This “Behind the Scenes” video was shot during the recording of our episode, ” The Future of Humanity with Elon Musk.” If you’d like to listen to the full podcast, click here: http://www.startalkradio.net/show/the-future-of-humanity-with-elon-musk/ Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/startalkradio Subscribe to StarTalk: https://www.youtube.com/user/startalkradio?sub_confirmation=1 Follow StarTalk: Twitter: http://twitter.com/startalkradio Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/StarTalk Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/startalkradio/ About StarTalk: Science meets pop culture on StarTalk!
