Welcome to the TED reddit - dedicated to spreading, discussing and implementing the ideas espoused by the worldwide TED conferences.

We've all been grabbed by one of the incredible talks available at TED. Why not post a link here and start a discussion about how it changed you.

Although it's redditor-created and -moderated, TED staff are not only reading this reddit, but are happy to step out from behind the proverbial bar, grab a beer, and join in interesting conversation. And they can also go back behind said bar to give official, canonical replies to questions or concerns about TED :)

People can talk about anything -- not strictly about TED stuff. This is a place for "TED people," not solely "about TED".

All are welcome, blogspam discouraged.

TEDx - Trust Is Not A Crime

I thought this talk might be interesting to some in this group: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDWejMhd6EI

In “Trust is Not a Crime” Shannon Moroney shares her personal journey following the violent crimes of her first husband, diving deep into justice, healing and how we can — and must — stop shaming and blaming victims.

TED Talk: What DEI gets wrong — and how to do it right

Happy to share that my #TEDx talk has been selected for the main TED site: What DEI gets wrong — and how to do it right

There is lot of polarization around #DEI, I believe a lot of it is because we are focused on the wrong measurements. This talk suggests how we can measure inclusion in a way that makes it possible to have more diverse and satisfied employees, while making more money - without creating any backlash.

Looking for a specific talk on wishes and community, please!

Hi! I am trying to find a specific video where a woman talks about how if you speak your wish to a community over a certain size then there a good chance they can make it happen. I think a couple examples were someone getting to dance with Tom Cruise and another one getting a cruise. Does anyone know which one I'm talking about please?

Looking for a TEDx talk on mind/body connection

Hi, I saw a TEDx Canada talk a few years ago (not sure which city), by a young male professor/doctor, looked like Indian ethnicity, and the topic was how the mind/brain and the body is connected/integrated.

I have searched all the TEDx sites I cn find but no luck, is there a list somewhere of all TED/x talks?

Appreciate any response on this

Help me find a TED talk about software engineering career paths

Hey everyone!

I'm on the hunt for a TED talk I saw years ago given by a software engineer discussing the career path in SWE. The speaker wore a Viking hat. Any idea which video this might be?

Thanks for your help!

I recently saw a Tedx talk by a person who is running a fraud. How can I report against it?

Hi folks, so I recently saw this Tedx talk by a person who claims to be a billionaire but they are actually running a fraud. The twitter account of that person and their company is full of complaints. It just saddens me that such people get to influence millions of people through a platform as reputed as TED. Is there a way to report to TED about the person? Some process that can lead to an impact such as removal of that Ted talk from youtube?

Event ideas for TEDx club?

my TEDx club is supposed to conduct an event. we have already conducted a TEDx talk. we have to wait for another year before we conduct another talk but we need to keep the club mainstream in our college and conduct some events. any suggestions? We do not want any panel discussions or stuff like that either where someone is just speaking and the audience is listening. Any suggestions as to what can be done? we'd like to do something along the lines of technology, entertainment, and design.

Almost at 500k views

I posted here years ago thanking the Reddit community for watching my TED talk from 2019 on effective decision making. I just got a note from my friend that my talk is at 499,000 views on the TED website. What do you say? Can you help push me over 500,000 and maybe improve your decision making in the process? Much appreciated!

TEDx Talk - Deepfakes

Tl;Dr:

I want to create a Deepfake (audio and visual) in 5-8 minutes cheaply, and then demonstrate it live on stage. How feasible is this?

Who + What + Why:

Hi Reddit, I’m Friendly_Newfie, and I’m preparing to make a TEDx Talk on Deepfakes. The talk will (pending approval) be in a University with many academics present. My talk will cover where we are now with this technology, referencing previous talks from Tom Graham and Holly Herndon (links below). I want to emphasize that the technology is accessible, that there are positive use cases for this technology, and we need to begin accommodating it in our society (referencing the podcast Sleepwalkers - Truth to Power, link also below).

The Idea:

My idea of showing that the technology is accessible: I want to “create” a Deepfake (video and audio media manipulation) in the duration of the Talk (5-8 minutes). I understand the enhanced performance has already been demonstrated as being possible (seamless live audio and visual Deepfake demonstration during previous TED Talks).

Execution:

Cheers to ChatGBT for helping me understand what’s necessary to make a Deepfake! I envision one/ multiple DSLR cameras on the stage capturing the necessary images for training the model. Those captured images would be processed live on a computer just off stage, which would then nearing the end of the Talk, successfully demonstrate that Deepfake technology is here, and accessible by the general public (ie avoiding me having to pay $$$ for off site processing power to rapidly create the short video).

Equipment:

I have an old DSLR camera, could source a standing tripod, and an okay PC (Windows 11, i7, 3060 graphics card, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 500GB SSD).

The Ask:

Please help me brainstorm if it's feasible? Point of logistics I should take into consideration, potential Paint points you've encountered in the past with creating Deepfakes, alternative routes to choose, etc.
