TED conferences are mainly known because the best lectures of the conferences are distributed freely through the TED Talks website. Worldwide, these videos have been accessed more than three billion times. The conferences focus on the areas of technology, entertainment, design, business, culture, art and science.
The title of this year's TEDxCERN conference is "Ripples of curiosity".
Great ideas do not stop, they move steadily. Breakthroughs can force us and society to rethink our established practices. But revolutions often begin as small waves of curiosity that grow and evolve before they may conquer the world. The basic idea of the conference is that ideas in science, technology and education spread like waves - they grow and fuse over time and new waves of change are emerging.
The speakers report on their stories, how their research has begun as a small wave, as a passion and fascination, and has become an ever-increasing wave, until today exactly this research has changed our worldview.
The organizers of this event are Dr. Chaitanya Gokhale and Dr. Guy Reeves.
