TEDx Event: “The Future is NOW”

TEDxSaintLouisUniversityMadrid invites the SLU-Madrid community to participate in the 4th annual TEDx event: “The Future is NOW,” hosted at SLU-Madrid on April 2nd, 2020.

What is the impact of Artificial Intelligence in current and future jobs? Are we coming to the end of data privacy? How are sustainable economy initiatives changing today’s world? In what ways are new technologies affecting the way we work, we live, we learn, we socialize?

The Future is NOW is the name of our event this year, where we will show “futuristic” examples that looked very distant years ago but which we face now in our daily lives.

As in every TEDxSaintLouisUniversityMadrid event, speakers will be chosen from among our University environment and local community. We are currently accepting nominations for speakers!

The team is now accepting nominations for speakers (complete this form) and volunteers (complete this form).


 

What is TEDx?

With the motto “ideas worth spreading,” TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience (www.ted.com). In a TEDx event (where x = independently organized TED event), TED Talks videos are combined with live speakers to generate discussion and connection between the local community.

Our first TEDxSaintLouisUniversity event will revolve around 3 axes: entrepreneurship, cultural exchange, and creativity. Half of the live talks will be in English, and the other half in Spanish.

Assistance is free, although prior registration and confirmation are required to attend.

 

¿Qué es TEDx?

Con el lema “ideas que vale la pena difundir”, TEDx es un programa de eventos locales, auto-organizados, que reúnen a personas para compartir una experiencia similar a TED (www.ted.com). En un evento TEDx (donde x = evento TED organizado independientemente), se combinan vídeos de TED Talks con oradores en directo, para generar discusión y conexión entre la comunidad local.

Nuestro primer evento TEDxSaintLouisUniversity girará en torno a 3 ejes: emprendimiento, intercambio cultural, y creatividad. La mitad de las charlas en directo serán en inglés, y la otra mitad, en castellano.

La asistencia es gratuita, aunque se requiere registro previo y confirmación para poder asistir.
