In 2016 I led a group of 300 students and adults IdeaLab at TiE Global Summit (Delhi). See how the students created amazing startup ideas in about an hour from just a few words.
In early 2018 I returned to TiE Global Summit 2 in Mumbai and facilitated IdeaLab with 300 students from government and slum schools. The energy was palpable and incredible, and students were able to create ideas relevant to their own communities in about an hour.
Late 2018 I ran IdeaLab at TiE Global Summit 3 in Delhi, with 100 adults and students. This time we had students create ideas merging machine learning and sustainability.
Part 2 of IdeaLab at TiE Global Summit 3, where students build low resolution prototypes and presentations for their ideas. Amazing what can be created in about 1 hour, with a theme, a goal, and a time limit!
3D Printing & Innovation
A great primer on 3D printing I made to the New Tech meetup in 2014.
I sat on a panel discussion around the Internet of Things sponsored by Design Museum Portland. The highlight for me was showing how simply one can gather crowd data, by passing around a sensor controlled by my phone amongst the crowd (about 1 minute in). Check out this overview of the event.
A five-minute overview of my work with the UNYQ Scoliosis brace, Sensors, and Generative design at the Tech Association of Oregon IGNITE talks, in 2017.
In May 2017 I had the opportunity to address a group of entrepreneurs, government agencies, and startups assembled by the National Institute of Health (NIH / NCMRR) around development of assistive devices and a process by which startups and corporations could work together to achieve common goals.
My talk at the TCT show in Birmingham (2017) about closing the loop between design, sensors, and data to create a smart, highly personalized wearable. The presentation also discusses automation of generative design to meet the need of customisations and what that means for the 3D Printing workflow.
An overview of my 3D printing projects for Cyborg Camp 2018, a group of dreamers and technologists that comes together each year to imagine the future.
I spoke about creating a culture of decision leadership at the DAAG conference in 2019. I shared the Stage with Amy Farrow, Engineering Lead at Lyft, and Carl Spetzler of the Strategic Decision Group (and one of the godfathers of Decision Analysis)! First time speaking about the Decision Quality Canvas.
Community & eNABLE
Sharing the magic of Startup Weekend with my co-organizer Jeff Martens on “Meet the Startup” in 2012.
Showcasing 3D printed hands at the Portland 3D Printing Lab’s booth at Portland Mini Maker Faire at OMSI in 2014.
In 2016 I had the pleasure of speaking at the Autodesk REAL conference about my role in 3D printing prosthetic hands for children in need. This is the story of the e-NABLE movement as well as my personal journey of discovery and give-back.
