What is TED?
TED is an annual event where the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share their passions. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics – from science to business to global issues in more than 100 languages. TED is devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks.
What is TEDx?
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, TED talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. There are about 10,000 TEDx events in 167 countries with over 3.6 billion views.
