Speakers 2017

We consider young adults like us as saplings, who are inexperienced and at the nascent stage of learning to function in society, while also exploring its idiosyncrasies. SIESGST plans to help young adults mould themselves into happy and responsible individuals and provide inspiration to share and implement ideas worth spreading.

We hope that our decisively selected speakers from varied fields will represent multiple aspects of life that can encourage the attendees to look at life from new perspectives.

The Harmless Bullet of Psychology

International security is often misunderstood with the use of weapons by both the parties involved in any conflict. However, Mr. Raul has a proposal of change through his current experience at Interpol, where there is a constant activity and use of psychology as the new "gun". How can this be possible? Well, we all got a body to be shot at. In the same way, we all got a brain to hijack. And that is what the new upcoming security is guided by, a behavioural hacking through programming ideas.
