Embrace Innovations Co-Founder and CEO Jane Marie Chen describes how the sudden loss of a corporate customer threatened to end her organization’s operations and served as a wake-up call that a more sustainable business model was needed, prompting Embrace to adopt one where its humanitarian efforts would be supported by the sale of baby products intended for retail consumers.
"Great dreams aren't just visions," says Astro Teller, "They're visions coupled to strategies for making them real." The head of X (formerly Google X), Teller takes us inside the "moonshot factory," as it's called, where his team seeks to solve the world's biggest problems through experimental projects like balloon-powered Internet and wind turbines that sail through the air. Find out X's secret to creating an organization where people feel comfortable working on big, risky projects and exploring audacious ideas.
"The actual path of a raindrop as it goes down the valley is unpredictable, but the general direction is inevitable," says digital visionary Kevin Kelly — and technology is much the same, driven by patterns that are surprising but inevitable. Over the next 20 years, he says, our penchant for making things smarter and smarter will have a profound impact on nearly everything we do. Kelly explores three trends in AI we need to understand in order to embrace it and steer its development. "The most popular AI product 20 years from now that everyone uses has not been invented yet," Kelly says. "That means that you're not late."
We often think that a great new idea will speak for itself -- that people will automatically see that it is awesome. But that's often untrue. There are two other crucial components needed before an idea can truly change the world. Tim Kastelle explains more on the TEDx stage.
MobileIron Co-Founder Bob Tinker describes the next challenge for a startup after figuring out product-market fit, and that’s achieving what he calls “go-to-market fit.” This entails three things: deciding on a sales model and committing to it, developing a repeatable sales and marketing routine that secures and delights new customers, and positioning the business so it aligns perfectly with the problem it is addressing.

Meg Whitman, president and CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, recalls how HP’s turnaround back in 2011 began with a return to the company’s founding corporate values and business objectives. She also discusses how leaders can take advantage of certain opportunities to carry out actions that can convey a symbolic message throughout an organization and get people’s attention.
Toy inventor Brendan Boyle talks about key concepts for making brainstorming sessions more effective, like including those adept at the technique and bringing together divergent and convergent thinkers. Boyle, a partner at IDEO who teaches the course “From Play to Innovation” at Stanford’s design school, speaks with creativity expert Tina Seelig, faculty co-director at the Stanford Technology Ventures Program.
In his talk at TEDx Koeln, Heiko Fischer builds a strong case for turning Human Resources on its head by enabling employees to become resourceful humans instead. He argues that businesses should be designed around a network of entrepreneurial teams contributing autonomously to the best interest of its customers. Fischer's company, Resourceful Humans was awarded the Management Innovation Award for enabling democratic entrepreneurship at HAUFE. RH combines its maverick management framework with cutting edge networking technology like aiRH, to optimise work environments for people and products.
If we want to unleash human potential, we need to accelerate it by creatively harnessing chaos. A practical example of this is a playground: kids are playful and chaotic because they have defined structures and beautiful systems driving their development. Work should be no different. Let's start inventing new playgrounds to accelerate humans in the world. Claire Burge is the CEO of This is Productivity. Part adventure seeker, part nerd, part psychologist, part technologist.
Meg Whitman, president and CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, discusses the difficulty of changing a company’s culture and how the key is to focus on a few core values and constantly repeat the message. Whitman also stresses the importance of identifying the obstacles standing in the way of change, and making sure the message is just as clear to far-flung groups within a large organization.
What do you get when you give a design tool a digital nervous system? Computers that improve our ability to think and imagine, and robotic systems that come up with (and build) radical new designs for bridges, cars, drones and much more -- all by themselves. Take a tour of the Augmented Age with futurist Maurice Conti and preview a time when robots and humans will work side-by-side to accomplish things neither could do alone.
Say hello to the decentralized economy -- the blockchain is about to change everything. In this lucid explainer of the complex (and confusing) technology, Bettina Warburg describes how the blockchain will eliminate the need for centralized institutions like banks or governments to facilitate trade, evolving age-old models of commerce and finance into something far more interesting: a distributed, transparent, autonomous system for exchanging value.
Elon Musk discusses his new project digging tunnels under LA, the latest from Tesla and SpaceX and his motivation for building a future on Mars in conversation with TED's Head Curator, Chris Anderson.
We must face our fears if we want to get the most out of technology -- and we must conquer those fears if we want to get the best out of humanity, says Garry Kasparov. One of the greatest chess players in history, Kasparov lost a memorable match to IBM supercomputer Deep Blue in 1997. Now he shares his vision for a future where intelligent machines help us turn our grandest dreams into reality.
