The TEDxEchoPark “Paradigm Shift” event on Saturday May 14, 2016, in Los Angeles, California, will “examine the most intriguing Paradigm Shifts unraveling in every field; from artificial intelligence to education, from branding to sexuality, from food to consciousness and many more. The event examines three key drivers that are sparking this change: ideas as impetus for change, combination as impetus for change and invention or discovery as impetus for change. Common to this colorful mix of Paradigm Shifts is their promise to deliver a roadmap that is superior to its predecessor in navigating us into a better future. At TEDxEchoPark we will take this map on a tour.” Foresight President Julia Bossmann will speak on Artificial Intelligence:
