Daniel Faggella

Daniel Faggella is the founder of TechEmergence, and blogs at His primary concerns are focused exclusively around uniting the world’s expertise in determining and moving towards the most beneficial transition beyond human potential, and the ethical considerations of transhumanism (enhancing sentience) and AI (the possibility of creating sentience).

Daniel’s academic background is in sports psychology at URI, with his master’s degree in positive psychology at UPENN, under positive psychology’s founding academic thinker, Martin Seligman. His academic business training was completed at the MIT Sloan School of Business.

Daniel has written for the Boston Globe, TechCrunch, Xconomy, the World Futurist Association’s official magazine, the Boston Business Journal, and more. He’s spoken internationally on topics related to the intersection of technology and psychology, including presentations at MIT, Yale, Stanford, Brown, and more.
