TEDxCERN 2016 – Ripples of Curiosity





Great ideas don’t sit—they splash. Breakthroughs shake the foundation of society and compel us to rethink our established practices. But revolutions rarely arrive as fully formed waves of innovation. Rather, they start as small ripples of curiosity that grow, evolve, collide, surprise and multiple as they spread around the world. 

This year at TEDxCERN we explore curiosity. Ideas that started as ripples in science, technology and education are merging and converging, creating their own waves of change. What new dimensions of our cosmos will waves in the fabric of space time unveil? Can a computer learn and think like a human? How much can we learn about the earth under our feet by watching it from above?

This year speakers will explore the innovations percolating though their fields. They 
will share stories about their passions and fascinations and how their research has grown from small ripples of curiosity into waves transforming the way we see and interact with the world around us.
