Applied Sciences Conference 2023 is over! Here are some of the highlights

Applied Sciences Conference 2023 is over! And what a few days it has been; a whirlwind of phenomenal insights, extraordinary events and connections across the entire tech ecosystem.

We talked about diversity and inclusion, why you should design something in the first place, the importance of building not just scaleups but stayups, how to get funding from VCs and beyond, and of course there were lots of discussions about AI. While it was incredibly hard to choose, here are some highlights from the past two days.

The speakers and sessions

Nagin Cox, interplanetary storyteller and NASA engineer took the main stage for “Ad Astra (To the Stars): Before We Send Humans, We Send Robots.” This talk was literally an otherworldly shift in perspective and perfectly captures the spirit of TNW’s 2023 theme – Reclaim the Future.

As Nagin, who has worked on a staggering number of NASA space exploration missions, quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Do not go where the path leads. Instead, go where there is no path and leave a trail.
