Below, the exciting lineup for TED! Also, meet this year's class of TED Fellows. Chris Anderson TED Curator After a long career in journalism and publishing, Chris Anderson became the curator of the TED Conference in and has developed it as a platform for identifying and disseminating ideas worth spreading.
Chris Anderson is the Curator of TED, a nonprofit devoted to sharing valuable ideas, primarily through the medium of 'TED Talks' -- short talks that are offered free online to a global audience.
Chris was born in a remote village in Pakistan in He spent his early years in India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, where his parents worked as medical missionaries, and he attended an American school in the Himalayas for his early education.
After boarding school in Bath, England, he went on to Oxford University, graduating in with a degree in philosophy, politics and economics. Chris then trained as a journalist, working in newspapers and radio, including two years producing a world news service in the Seychelles Islands.
Back in the UK inChris was captivated by the personal computer revolution and became an editor at one of the UK's early computer magazines. The new company initially focused on specialist computer publications but eventually expanded into other areas such as cycling, music, video games, technology and design, doubling in size every year for seven years.
Chris eventually merged Imagine and Future, taking the combined entity public in London inunder the Future name. At its peak, it published magazines and websites and employed 2, people. This success allowed Chris to create a private nonprofit organization, the Sapling Foundation, with the hope of finding new ways to tackle tough global issues through media, technology, entrepreneurship and, most of all, ideas.
He expanded the conference's remit to cover all topics, including science, business and key global issues, while adding a Fellows program, which now has some alumni, and the TED Prize, which grants its recipients "one wish to change the world.
InTED experimented with posting some of its talks on the Internet. Their viral success encouraged Chris to begin positioning the organization as a global media initiative devoted to 'ideas worth spreading,' part of a new era of information dissemination using the power of online video.
In Junethe organization posted its 2,th talk online. The talks are free to view, and they have been translated into more than languages with the help of volunteers from around the world. Viewership has grown to approximately one billion views per year. Continuing a strategy of 'radical openness,' in Chris introduced the TEDx initiative, allowing free licenses to local organizers who wished to organize their own TED-like events.
More than 8, such events have been held, generating an archive of 60, TEDx talks. And three years later, the TED-Ed program was launched, offering free educational videos and tools to students and teachers. As she writes, "I was born and raised in the Northwest, and I find my perspective heavily influenced by its laid-back, pioneering spirit.
After earning my MA from the University of Washington, I intended to curate art, but fell into the unusual specialty of craft, which appeals to me as a way of living differently in the modern world that tells us something about being human; I continue to be fascinated by the place of the handmade in our increasingly digital age.
I attended my first Burning Man in as research for my exhibition ' No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man ,' which explores the event as a creative laboratory and one of the most important cultural movements of our time. As a curator, I tell stories through objects, and I want to teach people to approach the world with curious eyes and find the magic around them.
My work is as much about inspiring people as transmitting knowledge. This drive to make the imaginary real is what pushed me to create a company as soon as I got out of university.
The seed of the idea for AIVA was planted once I saw the science fiction movie Her, where an AI composes a beautiful piece of piano that captures the essence of the moment she is currently living. This simple concept of creating an artificial intelligence capable of composing personalized music is how I believe that I can make the world a slightly more magical place and meaningfully support the storytelling of content creators through music.
