If you can’t be in the audience at the annual TED conference, watching in-house speakers and a simulcast on a big screen of TED 2015 live from the main stage in Vancouver, Canada is the next best thing! NCR was one of 200 hosts of a local TEDx event with its first TEDxNCRLive on Tuesday, March 17, 2015. NCR staff had an opportunity to spend a day learning from world-renowned thinkers and innovators. Nearly one-hundred NCR employees joined us to hear from the following thought leaders live. In typical TED talk fashion, they made us think and then rethink our preconceived notions.
After the live speakers, we tuned into the TED 2015 simulcast to learn more from the innovators, scientists and artists who shared their vision of what’s on the horizon in technology and society. Interested in knowing more about TEDxNCRLive? Watch this highlights video:

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
