Compassionate constructive laziness | Brad Voytek

May 8 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm

The Triton Neurotech and TNT Academy team is excited to announce their first event in their Professor Talk series! Join them for a talk put on by Dr. Bradley Voytek on Wednesday, May 8th from 7-8pm in Henry Booker Room, Jacobs Hall 2512.
Dr. Voytek is a Professor in the Department of Cognitive Science, the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute, and the Neurosciences Graduate Program at UC San Diego. After his PhD at UC Berkeley, he joined Uber as their first data scientist—when it was a 10-person startup—where he helped build their data science strategy and team. His research lab combines large-scale data science and machine learning to study how brain regions communicate with one another, and how that communication changes with aging and disease.

He is an advocate for promoting science to the public and speaks extensively with students at all grade levels about the joys of scientific research and discovery. To that end he is going to speak about the following:

Title: Compassionate constructive laziness

Description: Work hard. Follow your passion. Head down, nose to the grindstone hustle. Who do we do these things for and why? Yes, hard work is good if you have a clear set of goals and a vision to make your future life better and easier. Yes, passion is wonderful, but it can be blinding. And yes, grinding hassle can get you far, but at the cost of making many interpersonal interactions primarily transactional. In this discussion, Dr. Voytek will talk about his experience with the principle of constructive laziness – at first an accidental discovery, but later a more mindful ethos.
