Sean Gourley at TEDxAuckland
Dec 5, 2012
Dr. Sean Gourley is the founder and CTO of Quid. He is a Physicist by training. Sean worked at NASA on self-repairing nano-circuits and is a two-time New Zealand track and field champion. Sean is now based in San Francisco where he is building tools to augment human intelligence.
The top chess players in the world are not humans OR computers, but combinations of humans AND computers. Gourley argues that the world we are living in is too complex for any single human mind to understand and that we need to team up with machines to make better decisions.
