What is ted?

TED is a nonprofit 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. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

What is tedx?

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.)

the theme- First edition

“Explore and Extract”

Here in TED we believe, life is all about exploration. In almost every passing moment of life we are, in essence, wide-eyed curious explorers. You, for instance, are exploring TEDxJamal right now. But the catch is, only few of us are able to extract something from our daily explorations. Let’s talk about Sir Issac Newton. Of course people had explored or experienced the gravity prior to Newton, but is was him who seek to extract. If it was not him, one of the most important scientific discoveries would’ve never been surfaced. Humans have made virtually every idea and even fantasy come into reality through exploration and extraction. The invention of the Aeroplane was simply based on the extraction from the exploration of birds flying in the sky, while of the ship is rooted in the extraction from the exploration of fishes swimming in the water. Exploring and extracting need to be simultaneous. Once you explore, you ought to extract as it is extraction that leads to formation. Hence, exploring what’s hidden in the community and extracting what is needed for it is the theme of TEDxJamal 2020.

In this edition of TEDxJamal, get ready to witness the different instances of contemporary exploration and extraction within our own society. There are eight different thematic areas in which our rigorously selected speakers will share their ideas as per their expertise.
