SPEAKER - Arnab Dasgupta
With over 16 years of experience as an IT project, program, and operations manager at renowned companies like Optus, AT&T, and IBM, Arnab has honed his skills in managing complex technology initiatives. Beyond his professional career, Arnab is also passionate about creating video content, educating people, and writing about corporate mental health and science. Arnab's unique ability to blend creativity with technical expertise brings a fresh perspective to the field of IT management.
Arnab’s speech highlights the significance of having a scientific mindset in technological innovation. It will be argued that such a mindset can boost technological innovation by producing sustainable products that consider user mental health and behaviour. It will be shown that invention is an idea, while innovation is a profitable idea, and that we should focus on producing sustainable products instead of economically profitable ones.
Arnab will talk about how Moore's law has accelerated progress in innovation, leading to immense growth in robotics and AI. ChatGPT is used as an example of the latest AI innovation with extraordinary features that promise future advancement for society and culture. However, we will also delve in to the potential negative impact of AI usage without proper balance in social and moral science.
This talk will stress the importance of scientific concepts of the mind, self, consciousness, and free will in technological innovation. It will be argued that these concepts are not just philosophy but are scientifically proven and can provide clues for making future technological products. The audience is encouraged to develop an interest in these subjects and to embrace a scientific mindset to build a better world for future generations.
