Track: Plenaries
Type: Presentation
Level: All

Astro Teller is the Captain of Moonshots at X -- a “moonshot factory” at Alphabet that incubates new breakthroughs in science or technology that could solve huge problems that affect millions of people. Astro will share the secrets that X has accumulated in years of work on audacious projects like self-driving cars and balloon-powered Internet, because these secrets can be applied to anyone’s dream or team. He’ll explain how to shift your mindset to celebrate your mistakes and failures; to think in wacky and weird ways to help you unlock 10x-better solutions to problems; and to build teams that, counter-intuitively, become strong by being vulnerable.
