Tomorrow is Today

This year, TEDxUniversityofLeeds has decided to continue building on the futuristic ideas which dominate the world around us. However, a slightly different approach has been chosen. Diving beyond what the future will look like with new research in AI, environment, technology, natural and social sciences, to discover what we do not know about our futuristic present. Which innovative technological applications are used now? How are we advancing science? What can we currently achieve if we use our resources to their full potential?

Following on from last year...

The ideas shared at the TEDxUniversityofLeeds event “A New Age” revealed how life will be in 30-60 years’ time. Talks concerning eco-friendly housing in entire villages or cities, about hygiene in third countries in 10 years' time and concepts regarding space exploration and computer science all sparked ideas about futuristic technological implications.

So what can I expect now?

The aim of the conference is to take you on an insightful journey of realisation - that developments perceived as ‘futuristic’ are often a lot more concerning than we are led to believe. Ranging from environmental to cultural, this theme embodies a broad range of speakers and performances for our TEDx University event, bringing multi-disciplinary talks to the stage, which appeals to people from various different backgrounds.
