Mindfulness from an Engineering Perspective

Women Techmakers Berlin
Wed, Mar 6, 2019, 7:00 PM (CET)

About this event

Let's give some focus to Mindfulness, but from the engineering perspective, as brought to us by the technical cofounder of one of Berlin's successful data science startups.

Talk Description:

From incense and crystals to mindfulness based stress reduction therapy - meditation can mean almost anything. Let's strip away the more esoteric parts and identify concepts and techniques that are usful in understanding the complex machinery of our mind.

We will look at meditation through the lens of neuroscience, behavioural science and evolutionary biology and will take an analytical look into how our brain creates our conscious experience and how observing and modifying these processes within the context of mindfulness can help us become better engineers.
