Welcome to TEDxStanford

Our fifth TEDxStanford: The Human Race, took place on Sunday, April 24, 2016. TEDxStanford 2016 brought to the stage some of Stanford's most accomplished pioneers in the arts, technology, medicine and social sciences for an incomparable day of short talks and world-class performances. 

We'll post the new talks in the coming days, but in the mean time, check out the speakers and performers who appeared on the TEDxStanford stage in the past by clicking on our 2015 lineup and viewing the talks below.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxStanford, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxStanford event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED
