Featured Speakers

Oren Berkovich

Founder and CEO at SingularityU Canada
I specialize in being a generalist, mostly because there are very few things that don't interest me. I am fascinated by technology and widely curious to learn new things and connect people with ideas. This is especially true when it comes to GROWTH. Yours, mine, big-company, small-company, society. It doesn’t matter. For me, the setting is secondary to my passion for building teams and finding new ways to scale and generate value in our rapidly changing world.

Suzanne Gildert

Founder & CEO at Sanctuary AI
Prior to Sanctuary, Suzanne was co-founder of Kindred AI. She oversaw the design and engineering of the company's human-like robots and was responsible for the development of cognitive architectures that allow these robots to learn about themselves and their environments.

Before founding Kindred, Suzanne worked as a physicist at D-Wave, designing and building superconducting quantum processors, and as a researcher in quantum artificial intelligence software applications.

Suzanne received her Ph.D. in experimental physics from the University of Birmingham (UK) in 2008, specializing in quantum device physics, microfabrication techniques, and low-temperature measurements of novel superconducting circuits.

Suzanne likes science outreach, retro tech art, coffee, cats, electronic music and extreme lifelogging. She is a published author of a book of art and poetry. She is passionate about robots and their role as a new form of symbiotic life in our society.

Taddy Blecher

CEO at Community Individual Development Association and Maharishi Institute
Dr Taddy Blecher is CEO of the Maharishi Institute and the Imvula Empowerment Trust, CEO of the Community and Individual Development Association; and former Chairperson of the SA National Government task team on Entrepreneurship, Education, & Job Creation. He is a pioneer of the free tertiary education movement in South Africa, helping create six free access institutions of higher learning.

Dr Blecher co-founded the Branson School of Entrepreneurship with Sir Richard Branson, and has raised over R500 million in cash, property and equity to support free access to post-secondary school education. As a result, over 17,050 unemployed South Africans have been educated, found employment and moved from poverty to the middle-class. These formerly unemployed youth now have combined salaries in excess of R1 Billion Rand p.a. and expected life-time earnings of R27.2 billion. Over 600,000 young South Africans in schools have been reached with one-week education and life-skills training courses.
