    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.

    Can you picture a world with civilian space travel? Imagine contact lenses so smart that when you blink, you're able to browse the web. What about a society where cancer has been eradicated? CIW explores these possibilities and more with a discussion of today's most incredible scientific breakthroughs.
