Living by numbers

We’ll discuss new things people can measure and never thought could be measured. We’ll talk about the power of crowd sourcing and the collective power of small coordinated actions. We’ll try and understand the sheer scale of the world population and the danger of large scale poverty. We’ll explore the importance of the right data for nonprofit program evaluation. We’ll walk the fine line of analysis paralysis versus risk taking. We’ll feature artists who are working with data to communicate new ideas to the general public, and much much more.

TEDxSV is by invitation only. We welcome your application to join a diverse yet curated mix of thought leaders from the Silicon Valley area and beyond for a stimulating day of presentations, discussions, entertainment and art that will spark new ideas and opportunities for all.

In 2010, with 26 speakers and performers, 300 participants, and more than 100,000 individuals and groups from 45 countries on live stream, we shared ideas and inspired innovation for social change.
