TED is an abbreviation which combines the terms Technology, Entertainment and Design. The TED format – held originally as a conference – emerged from a scientific exchange based on these three pillars. Today, TED is best known for the ‘TED Talks’ – videos published on the ted.com online platform. These videos contain to-the-point lectures by outstanding speakers which succinctly sum up an important topic. TED Talks now come from a wide range of fields including science, business and the economy, art and culture. TEDx speakers are adept in the art of conveying knowledge in an engaging and vivid manner.
