We are excited to announce that our Senior Scientist and Director at AlterSpark, Brian Cugelman, PhD, has been selected to speak at the upcoming TEDx Toronto event on October 22, 2015.
The theme of the 2015 conference is Thresholds, dedicated to stories of courage, vision, and remarkable breakthroughs. Dr. Cugelman is honored to have the opportunity to discuss his research and outstanding work in the area of digital psychology. He will be in the company of other admired keynote speakers who have also demonstrated vision and innovation in their respective areas.
Details about his speech are under strict embargo, and the TEDx organizing committee has just released this introductory video:
This will be the seventh annual TEDx Toronto conference, hosted at the Royal Conservatory of Music. TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) is a non-profit organization focused on sharing powerful and profound ideas in the form of short talks by esteemed thinkers and speakers.
The successful TEDx Toronto event has grown from a small conference of 120 people in 2009 to over 1,000 delegates in 2015. While spots for the 2015 TEDx Toronto conference have all been filled, the conference will be streamed live from the TEDx website on October 22nd. Interested parties may also apply to volunteer at the event by completing an online volunteer application. Upcoming announcements regarding the conference and keynote speakers will be shared via the TEDx Toronto Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages.
We are delighted that Dr. Cugelman will be joining the lineup for the 2015 TEDx Toronto conference, and look forward to all of the talks that will be presented that day.
