APRIL 4th TEDxNJIT – Connections / Digital Everywhere
5-9:30pm Jim Wise Theater NJIT
NJIT is hosting its 3rd TEDxNJIT (www.tedxnjit.com) with a theme of Connections.
TEDx events are created in the spirit of ideas worth spreading. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
At TEDxNJIT: Connections, speakers will address a range of topics focusing on the pervasive nature of technology in our lives and how it is impacting our lives and the connections we create.
Topics that will be explored include questions such as – "Do connections and collaborations increase better decisions and outcomes?”, “In an increasingly connected world how does technology help make stronger connections possible?”, or “ How is ubiquitous computing impacting our lives for better or for worse?”
