Announcing MAXX Keynote: Challenge Your Perspective on Data with Neuroscientist Poppy Crum

Every day, we are surrounded by data.

From visiting the grocery store and searching for items to talking with coworkers at a meeting, our brains absorb every single detail, glance, and unspoken exchange to form ideas and opinions about people, the environment, and our future interactions with them — all within a split second.

Challenge your perspective on data at MAXX 2023, where you will be introduced to renowned neuroscientist Dr. Poppy Crum.

An internationally-recognized futurist, Stanford University professor, and innovator, Crum’s captivating keynote speech will unveil fascinating insight into how our brains function as powerful learning machines. With compelling examples, she will demonstrate how our daily experiences shape our internal algorithms — both consciously and subconsciously — and influence our decision-making processes.
