Event Details

Join us and speakers Salim Ismail, Jill McAbe Sonny Kohli as we ponder Answers Vs. Questions, inspired by Futurist Gerd Leonhard, who argues that "computers are for answers and humans are for questions",  a seminal distinction that questions what it is to be human. Because we now live in a world where artificial intelligence, robotics, and wearable technologies are becoming commonplace, we see the concept of humanity beginning to blur, so we ask the question:


"In order to preserve our humanity do we need to focus less on the invention of new technology and focus more on the creation of provocative questions?"


Meet Our Speakers:

Having spent the last seven years building Singularity University as its founding executive director and current global ambassador, he focuses on how organizations can leverage disruptive technologies to grow ten times faster than their peers. His captivating, educational, and downright jaw-dropping presentations have been called "mind-blowing" and "the best talk I think I've ever heard." His book, Exponential Organizations, quickly reached number one on Amazon's "Best-Sellers in Business Management" and was named Frost & Sullivan's "Growth, Innovation, and Leadership Book of the Year."

In 2008/09, Sonny was an Astronaut Candidate at the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and is an alumnus of the International Space University, a trained flight surgeon with the Canadian Forces, and was awarded a CSA scholarship to Johnson Space Center & Wyle Labs. While studying at ISU, he helped deploy the Image Reversal In Space (IRIS) experiment on the International Space Station. In 2010, while volunteering in Post-Earthquake Haiti, Sonny experienced first-hand the perils of inadequate health care faced by Earth’s most marginalized peoples. Intrigued by space-age solutions to the world’s health problems, Sonny co-founded Cloud Dx to create a fully autonomous ‘digital doctor’ called Vitaliti. Vitaliti was awarded as XPRIZE’s first Bold Epic Innovator as part of the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE.
