Organizers of TEDxDU--an independently organized event licensed by TED, which stands for "Technology, Entertainment and Design," with the theme of "radical collaboration"--have released the full slate of speakers for the May 13 event.
"Using a bold mix of humor, science, technology, music and more, the TEDxDU event will feature a combination of DU students, alumni and faculty, along with other innovators who are taking action to improve the world," DU Chancellor Robert Coombe says. "We envision TEDxDU as a gigantic collaboration engine to share our commitment of improving the human condition."
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to "ideas worth spreading." At TED conferences, leading scientists, philosophers, entrepreneurs and artists present their ideas in 18 minutes or less. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
