TED Talks: Introduction

A quick introduction to TED Talks

What are Ted Talks? 

TED talks are short powerful video talks (18 minutes or less) filmed at the annual flagship TED conferences, TEDx events and other TED initiatives.

They cover many topics and are delivered by a wide range of presenters such as scholars, scientists, philosophers, business leaders and many others.
