BRILLIANT MINDS 2016
In 2016, Brilliant Minds achieved a new level: It was “emotional architecture”, said Guest of Honor Quincy Jones. It went beyond the evolution of pure technology and provoked guests to challenge our own identities and personal biases in an authentic, intimate forum. Guests awakened their curiosity with talks from Alphabet Chairman Eric Schmidt, Baroness Joanna Shields, Wikipedia Founder Jimmy Wales, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, Kara Swisher, artists J.R., Doug Aitken and Jordan Wolfson, Niklas Zennstrom and many more luminaires amidst the fresh underground sounds of Icona Pop, Lykke Li, Miriam Bryant and breaking new music acts like The Royal Concept, Alias and Albin Lee Minau, who are shaking the streaming scene and revealed the next generation of Northern European startups disrupting everything from health to music to our sexuality.
