Todd Siler is a multimedia artist who received a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies in Psychology and Art from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; in 1986, he became the first visual artist to be awarded a doctorate from M.I.T. He was a Research Affiliate at M.I.T.’s Center for Advanced Visual Studies (1981-83); a Visiting Artist/Scientist at the Computer-Aided Design Lab in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (1986-88 & 1991); an International Advisory Board Member for the World Knowledge Forum in Seoul, Korea, as well as a Forum Fellow of the 1999 and 2001 Annual Meetings of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Siler’s published works include Breaking the Mind Barrier (Simon & Schuster, 1990; Touchstone Books, 1997) and Think Like A Genius (Bantam Books, 1996; Penguin Random House, 2017; http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/167113/think-like-a-genius-by-todd-siler/9780553379280/); both books have been translated into many foreign languages.
