Keynote Speakers

BEAU LOTTO

Neuro-Scientist and Founder
and CEO of Lab of Misfits Studio

Dr Beau Lotto is a globally renowned neuroscientist whose studies in human perception have taken him well beyond the scientific domain and into the fields of education, the arts and business. Public engagement, in the broadest sense, is at the core of what Beau does – whether he’s creating scientific experiments, giving talks or making TV programmes.

By enabling people to experience what it is to be a scientist, Beau’s aim is to encourage them to see science not as an academic investigation but as a way of being that is relevant to every aspect of their lives: this discovery can be powerful enough to make people think differently about both themselves and the world around them.

Presentation title: The Science of Seeing Differently

There are two parts to innovation: efficiency and creativity. In other words, innovation combines ability to create ‘novel’ solutions to meaningful problems and the ability to realise those solution. Society is typically focused – at times almost exclusively – on only one half of the innovation equation … namely, on efficiency. The simple, yet fundamental problem is that our world changes. Thus so too must we. We’ll discover that there’s nothing creative about creativity. Rather, creativity is only creative from the outside and we will use perceptual neuroscience to discuss the ecology of innovation that enables us not simply to be creative … or efficient, but to move from data (which is inherently meaningless) to the meaning of data … and back, since the greatest innovations happen by being ‘at the edge of chaos’ … on average.
