The Road to Freedom - Civic Entrepreneurship

Status

Nearly Fully Booked

Description

How do we achieve freedom? What is the path to freedom for Hungary and for Hungarians all over the world? The answer, as István Bibó put it, was to create the opportunities and customs of brave and generous acts, to tie up the powers of barbarism, to allow the rich out-pour of creative forces.

The 21st century solution is to simultaneously use the following four applications: Social Capital, Antifragility, Free Enterprise and the Entrepreneurship-Philanthropy Nexus.

 

Civil Vállalkozások

 

Civil Vállalkozások (Civic Enterprises') main program is the Senior Mentor Program that engages people over 55 in meeting society's greatest challenges. Today, 120 Senior Mentor Program members in 12 cities tutor and mentor elementary school students struggling to learn to read. Research shows that Senior Mentor Program boosts students' academic performance, helps schools and youth-serving organizations become more successful, and enhances the well-being of older adults.

The next chapter of 3D printing

Mass Customization

Status

Limited Capacity

Description

With 3D printing, we can meet more and more areas of everyday life such as dentistry, jewelry, product design, engineering or architecture and fashion. If you can make products easier or faster with 3D printing, you can make them stronger and create shapes that are not possible with other methods you can achieve significant market advantage. We are on the way to make 3D printing, like 2D paper printing, easy and accessible for everyone. One of the most important aspects of both everyday usage and component production is to reduce the cost per workpiece, which raises two issues. Can we print the component with the appropriate materials that matches the specifications? Can we bring the price down so that we can compete with traditional manufacturing processes?

What's it like working for TNW

Be part of TNW's journey up until the Financial Times became a majority stakeholder

Status

Limited Capacity

Description

Back in 2006 Boris and Patrick (co-founders of TNW) decided to organize a small get-together for the few people that were working in tech. They registered a domain (thenextweb.org), created a logo, wrote some copy, reserved a venue, and pinged Michael Arrington (founder of TechCrunch) to see if he wanted to speak at their ‘conference’ in Amsterdam. Michael agreed the same day, so Boris & Patrick pushed the site online and were in business. Ten weeks later, 280 people showed up.

Today, almost 13 years later, The Next Web has grown to become one of the most influential tech conferences globally. Recently, the world’s leading global business publication, Financial Times, has acquired a majority stake in TNW proving just that.

Find out more about the the journey, the turning point and the deal.

Cracking the code of cancer

Applying machine learning to understand patient response

Status

Limited Capacity

Description

Cancer is a complex and diverse disease arising from gene mutations that can happen in a myriad of ways, therefore, finding one single cure is an impossible task. Designing effective, targeted therapies for given cancer types requires an understanding of the mutation patterns that gave rise to the disease. Using machine learning techniques and cell simulations, it is now possible to catch a glimpse of those patterns, which, paired with biological insight, have a vast potential for facilitating cancer drug development. That's the big picture, but what's the first step? When does machine learning come into play, and what can you do with it? This talk is going to pull back the curtains on a real-life research project aiming to uncover the genetic patterns affecting drug resistance in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia - from idea to implementation and beyond.

 

Turbine AI

 

Turbine enhances cancer drug discovery processes by taking trial and error out of the laboratory and moving it onto servers that can run millions of simulated experiments in minutes.
