Howard Zisser, MD: Should We Trust Our Lives to Technology - at TEDxAmericanRiviera 2012

We trust technology -- from Google Maps to pacemakers -- to improve our lives and ensure our safety, but technologies can fail in extreme circumstances (like last year's Japanese nuclear disaster) or from complex software problems (like the stock market "Flash Crash"). Would you -- do you -- let machines run your life? Dr. Howard Zisser, a leading artificial pancreas researcher, will consider whether technologies can be trusted with round-the-clock, life-or-death responsibility. AboutTEDx, x = independently organized event 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 a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
