Announcing Three Keynote Speakers

Cathy O'Neil on Big Data

Statistics don't lie. Or do they? Cathy O'Neil, data scientist and self-described math nerd, explains how modeling and algorithms might just be "opinions embedded in mathematics."

As big data continues to influence decision makers and policy in everything from education to gambling to the justice system, Cathy looks at just how subjective it can be—and what makes it become a weapon of math destruction.

Judson Brewer on Mindfulness

Every day, we do things without paying attention to them. As our actions become habits, they become more and more automatic.

Judson Brewer, a leading neuroscientist and mindfulness pioneer, asks: Can we break our habits by bringing more attention to the thoughts and sensations associated with them?

Judson looks at how habits are formed, and how mindfulness techniques can help us become aware of our cravings in order to become less ruled by them.

Roy Baumeister on Willpower

Roy Baumeister, renowned psychology researcher and bestselling co-author of Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength, will explore the power - and limits - of human willpower.
