Challenge: Faculty and university leadership are invited to speak around the world and share their insight and research to a wide range of audiences. The World Economic Forum's bi-annual Ideaslab challenges presenters to the pecha kucha format, 5 minutes and 15 slides. Sometimes, after decades of research, five minutes doesn't feel like it can be enough.
Solution: Work closely with each presenter to rethink and storyboard how they communicate their life's work and translate it into a digestible, fast-food, format. Focusing on large conceptual images and stories give presenters the flexibility to speak from the heart and allows the personality and passion of the presenter to be the focus.
Topics have included machine learning, bioprinting, neural networks, cognitive bias, future of manufacturing, audio analysis, human-computer interaction, fourth industrial revolution, cognitive robots, artificial intelligence, computer imaging and cybersecurity among others.
