Award winning summit, Creative Innovation 2019 Asia Pacific (Ci2019) will return this April. Hosting over 40 innovators, entrepreneurs and futurists, the summit will focus on how human intelligence can develop alongside artificial intelligence.

Founder and executive producer of Ci2019 Tania de Jong has referred to this development as “human intelligence 2.0”. And she believes it will be essential as we move towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This year de Jong is championing the development of young female innovators with a new series of talks titled Go Girl Go World. The purpose of the talks is to leave young women, ages 15-24, feeling inspired to participate in STEM and other “Human Intelligence 2.0” industries. Ten young female entrepreneurs will receive scholarships worth over $10,000 in recognition of innovative enterprises.
