Coming full circle

The talk will be about what made me leave my comfort zone to face the unknown. I experienced the life on a road and learned several things about my and the world by travelling alone for several years. I was always looking for the one big thing in the world but I soon realized that this can’t be found. To ispire young people for travelling the world, I will give insights about the way from the lowest point to the meeting with the love of my life. Having no money, a broken motorcycle, no travel-buddy, and getting stuck in a civil war zone changed the trajectory of my the journey and my life. But in the end everything changed my live ultimately and found the key to inner strengh and how to make the world a better place.

Biography

When filmmaker Daniel Rintz left his home, his job, his family and friends to embark on a journey around the world, he did not exactly know what he was looking for. He took a chance giving in to a deep longing of an indeterminate nature. Coming out of university, lacking any savings, he decided to work along the way. This forced him to deeply immerse himself in foreign cultures which subsequently transformed his view on life. But when he returned after six years of travelling he made the most valuable discovery.

The power of simplicity

A common theme across science and beyond is the ease of generating complexity: simple systems rapidly generate very complex behavior. Why is this so? I suggest that this is due to the phenomenon of universality: a system is universal when it can explore all complexity in its domain, and already very simple systems are universal. I will also talk about one of its most fascinating consequences of universality, namely undecidability.

Biography

Gemma de las Cuevas was born and raised in Catalonia, where she studied Physics. After research stays in Innsbruck, Germany and Canada, she came back to Innsbruck where she work on various topics around theoretical physics.

How to Unleash Your Hidden Superpowers: Life Lessons of a Breakdancer

I love crafting and giving speeches. Thanks to many supporters and mentors I achieved to win the European Championship of Public Speaking in 2016. As a speaking coach I provide people with the tools, knowledge and skills needed to craft a powerful message, deliver it with confidence and find the best speaking opportunities. I used to be an engineer and transferred the tools and methods of process optimization to rhetorics. Now I tell you a little secret: What I’m doing on stage even longer than speaking is dancing. As a former breakdance trainer I’m super excited to combine my two biggest passions in this talk for you.

Manuel Plattner

Die Tage nach der Revolution

Wir befinden uns am Anfang der 4. Industriellen Revolution. Techniker und deren Investoren befördern uns seit einigen Jahren ins Zeitalter der Cyber-physischen Systeme und wollen uns in die post-digitale Ära katapultieren. Vergangene von der Ökonomie ausgelöste Revolutionen haben uns gesellschaftlich, politisch und philosophisch förmlich überrannt.
Ziel ist es, einen Dialog zu führen, wie wir der bevorstehenden Revolution begegnen können, ohne am Tag danach Teile unserer Gesellschaft wieder aufbauen zu müssen.

Biography

Manuel Plattner, geboren und aufgewachsen in Südtirol, ist als Manager und Berater in der Technologiebranche tätig und hat sich dort auf die Felder Business Development und Strategic Management spezialisiert. Er beschäftigt sich vor allem mit der Entwicklung von Unternehmen und dem interdisziplinären Umgang mit technologischem Fortschritt.
