Christina Aldan Speaker and Trainer at CodeMash
12th Annual CodeMash Conference is to be held in Sandusky, OH
Fearing the Robot Overlords is a talk that reminds us to lean into more of what makes us human; characteristics like empathy and compassion. It is about how we irrationally fear robot overlords as we do vampires and any other supernatural beings that go bump in the night. Many people worry that their intelligence will take our jobs, our livelihood, our freedom, and enslave us to do their bidding. Christina reminds us that this is not to be our future. We need not fear a hostile robot takeover. We can celebrate Artificial Intelligence as our greatest accomplishment, and harness it for the tool that it really is. Christina's talk addresses our relationship with computers as tools and how we should allow computers to do the work, so people can do the innovating.
Unleashing Your Creativity is a training workshop that has been taught internationally. Using creative techniques, we can gain insight into what motivates us and unleash our creative potential for problem-solving and for content creation. For innovation to flourish organizations must create an environment that fosters creativity. It is about bringing together multi-talented groups of people who work in close collaboration together exchanging knowledge, ideas and shaping the direction of the future. In this training, participants will learn that creativity is a skill you can develop with practice and a process you can manage. Some other topics covered in this creativity workshop are to understand the dynamics of creative work, the most common pitfalls and how they affect teams, learn to identify and eliminate the things that stop creativity, and discover specific, everyday practices that lead to long-term effectiveness. Attendees will discover the natural capacity for creativity through a range of hands-on activities that will appeal to both sides of your brain. Students will experiment with ideation tools that supersede traditional brainstorming in a fun, inspiring action-filled environment.
