People are often on the extreme ends when facing challenges and end up harming themselves when attempting to reach a compromise that would never work. Sophia Brueckner applies her past experiences with computer science to emphasize the importance of critical optimism in order to avoid this self-harm of extremity.

Sophia Brueckner is an Assistant Professor at the Stamps School of Art & Design. She is interested in the ethical and thoughtful design of new technologies.

As a software engineer at Google, Brueckner worked on front-end development and interface design for products impacting millions of users. She went on to explore the simultaneously empowering and controlling aspects of technology through her artwork. To further understand and raise awareness about these effects, Brueckner also teaches a Sci-Fi Prototyping course and has earned recognition from The Atlantic, Wired, NPR, and the Scientific American.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
