Hong Kong – Speakers Connect, the Hong Kong based speakers’ agency, welcomes on board popular environmentalist, inventor, and entrepreneur, Cesar Harada. A TED Senior Fellow, Cesar has earned fame for his pioneering work in exploring and protecting oceans with open technologies and is also an inventor with innovations such as a shape-shifting sailing robot.
Carrying French-Japanese roots, Cesar is the CEO of Protei Inc and Scoutbots. Having spent a lifetime caring for the environment, he has brought new technologies to the fore. These include Protei, which can change shapes as a sailing robot, a wind powered maritime drone that can be remote controlled and automated to collect ocean data and even transport clean-up equipment.
In the past, Cesar was the MIT project leader and won the Ars Electronica Golden Nica [NEXT IDEA] with his Master graduation project from the Royal College of Arts, London. He is a senior fellow at TED, GOOD 100, IBM Figure of Progress, Unreasonable at Sea Fellow, Shuttleworth Foundation and Ocean Exchange grantee. He teaches Masters at the Goldsmiths University of London, and the Versailles Architecture School in France. Cesar has lectured all over the world, and some of his central beliefs relate to the harmonious co-existence of nature, humans, and technology.
Cesar brings with him an in-depth grounding in subjects related to the environment and technology. In particular, he holds expertise in topics such as STEM education, ocean robotics, water pollution, citizen science, and open hardware for the environment. His ideas shed new light on oceanic technologies as well as improving the world through open innovation. His focus is also on the fourth industrial revolution with a perspective emanating from Hong Kong and Shenzhen, the emerging megalopolis of the world.
