What is TEDGlobal 2013?

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a small conference in 1984, TED has grown to support world-changing ideas with multiple conferences, the TED Prize, and our TED Talks videos. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes.

TEDGlobal 2013 brings together a program of speakers who challenge us to pause for an instant and Think Again. Because we are in the midst of a global remix. Disciplines merge and cross-pollinate. Technology intrudes into biology and society. Power and authority are redistributed. Boundaries shift -- or disappear. Hopes and anxieties collide. A new world is emerging at the intersection of once-separated realities, and everything we think we know might just be wrong.
