About the Keynote speaker

Dr. Brian Greene, is one of the world's leading theoretical physicists, string theorist and author.  The Washington Post described him as "the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today."  Dr. Greene's abstract is as follows: 

The Drive to Innovate: Stories from the Frontiers of Discovery

Innovation, exploration, and discovery are deeply ingrained in human nature, and the keys to their success transcend disciplines. Professor Greene uses three stories from the frontiers of science to examine how essential features — staying the course while shedding expectations, maintaining individuality while working collaboratively, accepting failure while pushing for success — can coalesce into breathtaking results. Sparking new insights, this presentation explores how we can unleash our innate drive to innovate.
