TED@IBM is a first-of-its-kind, one-day event that will serve as a premier knowledge-sharing platform, built for the business community in the new global economy. Our teams will use the power of TED’s mission and model combined with the depth and breadth of IBM’s expertise and that of our clients, partners, and friends to explore bold ideas, unexpected insights, and unique personal stories.
We’re going to share these stories with the world.
Reimagining Our World
What will our world look like? In 10 years? In 50? We see a world full of promise—for greater community, prosperity, and innovative solutions to problems big and small. Today our planet already generates unprecedented amounts of data. How can we use this in new ways while protecting our ideas of privacy? What will we create from and with global networks of consumers, workers, citizens, students, and patients? How will we engage with an emerging global culture, defined not by age or by geography, but by people determined to change the practices of business and society? And as the world changes, so too does the very nature of our work and our definitions of success.
This conference will celebrate the thinkers who are changing our world one powerful idea at a time.
