New Exclusive Female Tech Speaker With TED Talk: Dr. Poppy Crum


We wanted to check in with you about Dr. Poppy Crum, a new exclusive speaker on our roster and one of the most exciting female technology speakers I’ve seen. She is Chief Scientist of Dolby Laboratories and an Adjunct Professor at Stanford. She spoke at both the 2018 SXSW and TED conferences. 

Poppy’s talk is very high-level and packed with completely original content that gets you thinking and questioning what will be possible in the years to come

This is not simply an overview of where our technology community is now. It’s a deep dive into the fundamental ways technology will change human potential and achievement for the better in the coming decades.

Encouraging audiences to embrace technology rather than fear it, she answers questions like:

  • What specific technologies will have the biggest impact on human innovation and evolution?
  • How will AI, machine learning, audio and voice recognition, AR/VR, immersive technology, and big data impact the ways businesses connect with consumers?
  • How will personalized data change the way we experience the world and our relationships with one another?

Whether exploring how doctors will be able to predict the onset of life-altering medical conditions through changes in speech patterns, or how we’ll start “retraining” our brains as we sleep to improve daily function, Dr. Crum helps organizations embrace change while reframing the ways they think about everything from talking to consumers and understanding demographic patterns to amplifying personalization in products and marketing strategy.
