Jason Silva has been described as "a digital DJ, a re-vitalizer and remixer of optimism, and above all a curator: of ideas, of inspiration, and of awe... like a trumpet player or modern-day digital Mingus, he jams, riffs and rhapsodizes through a tumbling thicket of ideas with such a sharp and vital alacrity that it can take the breath away. He’s a modern performance philosopher, reviving the vibe of Tim Leary and Buckminster Fuller and revivifying the dialogue that they started decades ago." Jason Silva (born Feb 6, 1982 in Caracas, Venezuela) is a television and media personality, futurist, filmmaker and wonder junkie. From 2005 to 2011 he was a presenter on Current TV, the Emmy winning, independent cable network started by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore. Jason recently launched a series of short-form videos on our 'Human/Technology co-evolution', the latest of which was called "stunning" by TED's Chris Anderson. He also recently partnered with Oscar nominated producer Peter Martin to create a feature length 3D Documentary on the singularity called Turning into Gods. Silva's work has been featured inThe Huffington Post, BigThink.com, Vanity Fair, Motherboard.tv, NextNature.net, and FORBES Magazine. Silva was also featured as part of the GAP “Icons” national ad campaign. Silva has spoken at the Singularity Summit in NYC alongside Peter Thiel and Ray Kurzweil, Yale University, and The Paley Center for Media. Silva resides in Los Angeles, California and New York City.
