About the Event

Join us for our next TopTalks event on Wednesday, June 29, at 10:00 AM EST hosted through the Speakers Network program at Toptal! TopTalks are short TED-style talks in under 10-minutes presented by Toptal experts. Each talk showcases a well-formed idea, followed by a 5-minute Q&A session.

Come learn from fellow Toptalers, and if you’re up for it, give your feedback to help them improve! (Note: Rubrics will be provided at the event to all attendees who are open to sharing feedback. Or just come and learn something new!)

Speaker Line up:

Oscar Luiz: Disaster Recovery: Concepts - Part II
In part one, we discussed recovery plan concepts and outlines. In this continuation on Disaster Recovery Plans we will talk about disasters and how to prepare for them. For this, we will get help from Captain Adama and the crew of Battlestar Galactica. We will see what they have come up with and how we can bring it into our reality. So say we all!

Tahir Shahzad: Scaling AI Solution for Enterprise Clients
It is relatively easy to build AI based prototypes and meet some of the functional requirements with a testing dataset. In this talk, we will look at AI solutions with a scalability point of view and what are the major challenges that may effect the solution in later stages.

Sowmy VJ: Making Corporate Climate Action a Competitive Game
In finance and investment, we tend to compare companies on the basis of various ratios and efficiency metrics. This gives us an ability to cut the clutter and get an understanding of whether the company is worth investing into. In comparison, corporates have made climate pledges such as $1b in green investment, or to lower the carbon footprint, to achieve net zero etc., all of which are individual pledges and lofty projections with no comparability.

What if we created a mechanism to compare climate action being taken and hence give analysts/ investors the ability to make an informed decision? Would this accelerate corporate climate action?
