Living the American Dream: Greg Smith at TEDxCincy

4y ago


Gregory Smith is currently an Associate Professor of Management Information Systems in the Williams College of Business at Xavier University. He holds a PhD in Business Information Technology from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. At Xavier, he focuses his teaching and research on computer-based data mining applications and associated ethical implications. His passion for the subject matter led him to create the Xavier/SAS® certificate testing center for Predictive Modeling. It stands as one of only a handful of on-campus test centers in the United States. He also co-invented Xavier University's suite of American Dream indices including the American Dream Composite IndexTM(ADCI). The ADCI is a unique and robust measure of sentiment that values the American Dream on a monthly basis. This instrument is changing the way people view the American Dream and the way organizations view quality of life. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
