Welcome to TEDxHUBerlin
TEDxHUBerlin 2020 Theme Announcement
TEDxHUBerlin would like to reflect on the connection between the calculating machine and the emotional human being. Practice shows that the worlds between humans, nature and technology already collide massively. From workflow management tools to AI board members, to an AI-based sustainability revolution or a humanoid love-machine, there are no limits to the future. Every move we make influences future Innovations – maybe even making us part of a living simulation today?
We would like to invite speakers to take a snapshot of this development to reflect on the current state of affairs, to present AI as an innovation accelerator, to take a look at possible threats or to give a creative outlook on how our future can be shaped by Machine Learning, Big Data & Co. After all, not everyone is ready for humanoid spouses, in this case we would like to hear why humans are the next big thing!
Therefore, the team of TEDxHUBerlin happily welcomes submissions from the fields of psychology, humanities, technology, art, culture, science fiction and entertainment. As always, different formats are conceivable: theoretical reflections, commentaries, practical examples, utopias & dystopias, thought games, music or field reports.

Becoming one of our official partners is an exciting way for your business to get access to the brightest students, advertise your brand to a versatile audience, interact with the TED family, and become part of a promising conference with ambitions to grow.
Beneath every earth-shattering change lie countless ideas that distress the structural concepts and practices of our time – ideas that aim to meet relevant challenges no matter their size. Beyond the concept of “Ideas worth spreading,” or goal is to seek out and support such ideas within our community, as well as connect and inspire local innovators.
TEDxHUBerlin is providing a platform for faculty, alumni, and students of the Humboldt University of Berlin, as well as members of the greater Berlin community, to share their inspirations and ideas. We don’t just bring people from different fields together; we provide them with the support they need to facilitate cross-field intuition and interaction.
TEDx HUBerlin is an opportunity to gain insights into the many directions of modern innovation – giving participants a greater understanding of the process towards the next great idea.
BECOME A SPEAKER OR NOMINATE ONE
Speak up! Do you have a passion, idea, or story worth spreading? Do you think outside the box, animate people to push their boundaries to greater heights, or push for change no matter the degree?
Give us a shout and tell us about your passion. What motivates you to become a speaker at this year’s TED Talk at the Humboldt University? Why do you think your idea is worth spreading? What makes your talk unique?
Do not hesitate to contact us. We are constantly looking for new speakers for our TED Talks. It is not necessary to apply with a fully planned talk. Give us a short impression of your unique idea for this year’s TED event. Show us your speaking skills and passion by adding videos, interviews or other kinds of references. Take the first step, and we will be in touch shortly with the support you need to spread your idea.
Let’s proceed. During the upcoming months we will be reviewing the applications and will coordinate with you as soon as possible. We are aiming to find the best ideas to make the first TEDx HUBerlin an exceptional experience. Interviews and applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis. If you are chosen, we will supply you with further information regarding your TEDx HUBerlin talk to give everyone the best TEDx experience.
