"A Human Renaissance in a Technology Driven World"

January 22, 2014 - Derek V. Smith is the Founder and Chairman of GivingPoint and the Game of Golf Institute. GivingPoint, Inc., a not for profit organization designed to inspire a new generation of social entrepreneurs who seek to connect and serve others in today's technology driven world. In his IMPACT talk, Smith discusses the "Risk Revolution 2000" and "The Exponential Society" which covers different points he and his colleagues believed would be different in the new millennium. The "1 in 100 Year Event" or "Black Swan Event" were more prevalent then ever. Smith discussed that the key driver to these events was the exponential growth and change in technology and the huge issue that the human genome growth couldn't keep up with the unrelenting technological advancement. These events create a very dangerous cycle. However, Smith says to recognize the opportunity in this issue and discusses how informed and inspired people are essential in solving the complex issues of our time.
