In the spirit of "ideas worth spreading," TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxGITAMUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxGITAMUniversity , TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
TED is a nonprofit media organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). 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 believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.
TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, the recently launched TED-Ed platform for students and educators, the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide, and TEDBooks, short e-books by speakers that elaborate on a single idea originally presented on TED's stage. TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their thougths into action.
