“Tech for the Soul #behappy,” a special session moderated by Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief, Huffington Post, with special guest Deepak Chopra, MD, co-author of Super Brain and Founder of The Chopra Foundation and Chopra Center, has been added to the powerhouse lineup at Silvers Summit during the 2013 International CES
