What are you most passionate about? What makes you come alive? In this talk, Luke Hutchison will talk about how to find what you love, and how to be successful while doing what you love.

Luke Hutchison is a computer scientist from New Zealand. He completed a PhD and postdoc in computational biology at MIT and Harvard Medical School, and was recruited by Ray Kurzweil to found an artificial intelligence lab at Google.

He also has many interests outside of computer science, including languages, cultures, and North Korean human rights.
