How To Make A Human Connection In An Ever Increasing AI World: Abhay Valsangkar (Transcript)

Here is the full transcript of Abhay Valsangkar’s talk titled “How To Make A Human Connection In An Ever Increasing AI World” at TEDxVIT conference.

Conversation coach Abhay Valsangkar’s talk, “How To Make A Human Connection In An Ever Increasing AI World,” explores the profound impact of artificial intelligence on human interactions and emphasizes the importance of maintaining genuine connections despite technological advancements.

He introduces the concept of different quadrants of attachment to others, highlighting the pitfalls of being overly attached or completely disconnected. Through engaging anecdotes and personal experiences, Abhay elucidates how excessive attachment can lead to draining oneself emotionally, while total disconnection results in a lack of fulfilling relationships. He advocates for a balanced approach, urging the audience to adopt vulnerability and empathy to forge deeper connections.

Abhay provides practical strategies, such as the C = A + R + E formula, to enhance attentiveness, responsiveness, and the willingness to evolve in relationships. His talk is a compelling reminder of the value of human touch in a digital age and a call to action to nurture our relationships intentionally. Ultimately, Valsangkar’s message is a beacon of hope for a future where technology and human connectivity coexist harmoniously, enriching rather than diminishing our social fabric.

TRANSCRIPT:

May I request everyone to please keep your hands like this in front of you. Great, thank you. Let’s clap on the count of three. Ready? One, two. Oh, what happened there? You can keep your hands down. I said let’s clap on the count of three. But most of us, we clapped on the count of two. Why did we do so? It’s because you did so, Abhay, and that’s why we did, right? And that’s the fundamental of connecting with human beings, because people do what you do, not what you say.

So if I stand here and say, “Hey, no smoking,” you’re not going to believe what I say, right? You’re going to believe what I do. And of what I have learned in my journey so far, I’m honored to be here and share the same with you.
