Please join us for an evening of exciting talks on Technology and Social Change with three remarkable speakers: Jeff Kirschner, Joshwa Browder, and Tim Chang.

Jeff Kirschner is the founder & CEO of Litterati, a global community working to create a litter-free planet. Jeff is also a TED resident. He will share his experience of building a community using technology and a data-driven approach to understand one of humanity's most challenging problems. 

Joshua Browder created DoNotPay at the age of 19, the first website that allows motorists to appeal their parking tickets automatically. The "robot lawyer" has beaten 160,000 parking tickets in the 21 months since the launch.

Tim Chang is an experienced investor and global executive. He has been twice named to the Forbes Midas list of Top Tech Investors. Tim will talk about the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), and how it affects people's relationship with technology, including those with limited digital skills.
