Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system by the end of the decade. Whether challenging the ethical boundaries of medicine with nanotechnology or going toe to toe with the Vatican itself on the issue of gene-therapy sterilization, Sir Peter prides himself on his motto, “If we can, we must.” After a three year media blackout, Weyland has finally emerged to reveal where he’s heading next.
With their prevalence across the web, it’s hard to believe that the TED conference organizers have only been broadcasting the video content of their events for five years. On their anniversary, they’ve released a list of the 20 most-watched TEDTalks – as watched on key platforms we track: TED.com, YouTube, iTunes, embed and download and Hulu: Sir Ken Robinson says schools kill creativity (2006): 8,660,010 views Jill Bolte Taylor ‘s stroke of insight (2008): 8,087,935
TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) has been existed since 1984 with the primary objective to spread some really great ideas and experience related with technology, entertainment and design. You might not be familiar with this conference, but seriously, cool technological devices like Xbox Kinect is inspired by one of TED’s talk . (Image Source: TED ) For sure it’s not just about complicated technology or hardcore design theory. TED is flooded by top-notch and innovative designers, developers and scholars, namely Tim-Bernett Lee, Don Norman, and Dennis Dutton, who are willing to share their life story, experience and vision for greater benefit of the world. Since we web designer are a hybrid of web developer and graphic designer, I’m going to introduce you 10 unmissable TED videos that either explore the way to create great design, or urges you to think big in your design career, or even predict the next 5000 days of the web.
Every year, today’s greatest thinkers gather at various TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) conferences around the world. Their talks, which you can find on TED’s website , are often insightful, educational, and fascinating. As a TED junkie, I decided to compile 20 of the best business talks in the conference’s history. Each talk offers insights either into a business leader’s mind, or into concepts that will change the way you think about business and the economy.
The 2010 Technology Entertainment Design conference will be kicking off tomorrow in Long Beach, California, bringing the leading minds of many fields together to talk shop about innovation, change, and what the future holds. As social media has become a game changer for industries across the board, you can bet the experts at this year's TED conference will have their sights set on peeling back the hype and getting at the core of what social technology has in store for this year and beyond. Perhaps the best part of the TED conferences is that videos of the talks are archived and free to view right on the organization's website . Given the wealth of insight we're sure to see tomorrow, we thought we'd whet your appetite by highlighting a few recent and exceptional talks from TED's past, with a focus on social media. 1.
