    TALK - Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    Like it, click it, share it, save it—it’s beyond your control. Algorithms are designed to extract the same sort of dopamine response that receiving a compliment evokes, and it’s changing our brains. But who’s controlling the change and the code it follows?
