Jason Silva is the host of National Geographic Channel's series "Brain Games."

Jason Silva is an extraordinary new breed of philosopher who meshes philosophical wisdom of the ages with an infectious optimism for the future. Combining intriguing insights and a mastery of digital film-making, Jason delivers philosophical shots of espresso which unravel the incredible possibilities the future has to offer the human race.

Called the "Timothy Leary of the Viral Video Age" by The Atlantic, Jason draws from his experiences as a television personality, a media artist, a filmmaker, and a techno-philosopher to share his inspirational take on scientific and technological advancements. Using his series of short videos, which play as "movie trailers for ideas," Jason explores the co-evolution of humans and technology and have garnered over 2 million views.

Jason's riveting on-stage delivery style, and his hyper-enthusiastic insights on creativity, innovation, technology, philosophy and the human condition are equally unique and mind-blowing. An Idea DJ and a visual poet, Jason is above all, an optimist and a curator of ideas, inspiration and awe.

From 2005 to 2011, Venezuela-born Silva was a presenter on Current TV, the Emmy-winning, independent cable network started by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, where he hosted, wrote and produced more than 100 hours of original content.

An active and prolific speaker, Jason has spoken at TEDGlobal, Google (three times), and keynoted events for Microsoft and IBM. He has also created videos for GE, Samsung, Adobe and Autodesk. He was a featured speaker at The Economist Ideas Festival, The Festival of Dangerous Ideas, the DLD Conference in Munich, The Singularity Summit, the PSFK Conference, Mexico's Ciudad De Las Ideas and Seattle's Interactive Conference.

Jason has been featured in CBS News, The Atlantic, The Economist, Vanity Fair, Forbes, Wired, TED.com, IO9, Huffington Post, BigThink, and BrainPickings, among others and he was also featured as part of the Gap "Icons" campaign.
