TEDxExeter Salon 2017

Saturday 7 October 2017

We are delighted to announce TEDxExeter’s first Salon to explore cutting edge technology. Leading researchers from Google and Amazon will be sharing the latest developments in artificial intelligence at the first TEDxExeterSalon.

Tickets are now sold out for the hotly anticipated event in October, which will explore how technology meets the real world. The Salon follows the sell-out TEDxExeter ideas festival in April. It will bring together speakers from academia, the arts and innovative companies to discuss how technology is transforming our lives in ways that are exhilarating yet often controversial. They will be sharing insights into how machines are teaching themselves to understand their environment, and how tech can reveal the collective consciousness – or hive mind – of large groups of people.
