What does it mean to be intelligent? In this powerful talk Anarghya Vardhana explains how society’s perceptions of intelligence – often connected to gender, race and socioeconomic status –- are applied in an unfair manner. She shares her personal story as a way to encourage and inspire people of all ages to see themselves as intelligent in a variety of ways.
Anarghya published a math theorem at the age of 17, which set her on a lifelong path in STEM. As an investor at Maveron, she brings her passion for the intersection of cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence to existing mass consumer experiences. Prior to that, she was a product manager at several startups and led operational teams at Google. Anarghya studied Science, Technology, and Society at Stanford.

TEDxYouth@SanDiego is an independently organized TEDx event designed by youth, for youth to bring the power of big ideas to the youth of San Diego -- and the world. http://www.TEDxYouthSanDiego.com
