Yet, the majority of us feels that we are not living up to our full potential. David shares his wisdom on how one can create passion rather than find it. He remindes us that sometimes we even have to deal with the obstacles and disruptive events in our life to find the true success and get back on the track to change the world.

What if your mind and body were disrupted?

Cathy was born a boy. However, she slowly became aware that she simply didn’t feel right in her own body. People change lots of things, they dye their hair, build up muscles, enlarge their breasts, change their jobs, move from country to country, change their partners but changing your gender is still considered a huge taboo.

Will AI outsmart humans?

Will AI outsmart humans?

Drones, driverless cars, robots that look and think like human… May intelligent systems really pose a threat to humans one day? Mateja addresses this question from a scientific perspective and talks about how the enormous amounts of data we have today can possibly allow machines to think indistinguishably from a human. She argues her faith in artificial intelligence as a supportive and effective system in the hands of human experts.

Where to find disruptive ideas

What does disruption mean to you? Dhairya’s response would most likely be “disruption is not what happens to you, it is how you respond to what happens to you”. By observing his environment, Dhairya generates quite unusual ideas such as shoes that guide you to your destination or to touchscreens that stretch and bend.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

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. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED 

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a conference in California 1984, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives.

At a TED conference, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less. TED speakers have included Roger Ebert, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Brian Greene, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. 

On TED.com, talks from TED conferences are shared with the world for free as TED Talks videos. A new TED Talk is posted every weekday. Through the Open Translation Project, TED Talks are subtitled by volunteers worldwide. Through our distribution networks, TED Talks are shared on TV, radio, Netflix and many websites.

The TEDx initiative grants free licenses to people around the world to organize TED-style events in their communities with TED Talks and live speakers. Selected talks from these events are also turned into TED Talks videos.

The annual TED Prize grants $1 million to an exceptional individual with a wish to change the world. The TED Fellows program helps world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities. TED-Ed creates short video lessons by pairing master teachers with animators, for use in classroom instruction or independent learning.
