Think Creatively In The Age of Digital Distractions – by a TEDx speaker

November 22, 2019 @ 18:00 - 20:00


If you live in the UK, there is a 35% of your job will be taken by robots in the next 10-20 years. In the US, this reaches 47%. However, the more creative element your job has, the less likely it is to be automated. But creativity needs brain space and a calm mind – a big luxury these days.

In this brand new, interactive and highly insightful talk a TEDx speaker, author of “Homo Distractus” and digital wellness thought leader Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina explores, how to build creative thinking in the age of digital distractions to prepare ourselves for the future. We’ll discuss, whether robots can be creative, what makes someone creative from the neuroscience perspective, and the impact of information overload and digital distractions on creativity.

If you have been to other Anastasia’s talks, keep in mind that this talk may have some repetitions, but no more than 25%. All other content is brand, but told in the same fun and (hopefully) engaging manner!

Questions we will be covered:

– What is creativity from the neuroscience perspective? What happens with your brain when you have an ‘AHA!’ moment?

– Relationship between daydreaming, boredom and creativity.

– What can we learn about ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ creativity from the Nobel prize winner Daniel Kahneman?

– What are the impact of information overload and digital distractions on creativity? How do our devices impact our two brain systems?

– The future of work. Why it’s vital to keep developing creativity in the age of Artificial Intelligence. What can and can’t robots do?

– How can technology be helpful to enhance creativity and innovative culture? How can it intervene?

– How do you encourage creative thinking and innovation in yourself?
