TEDxDTU, one of the capital’s most awaited TED events, is back with an intriguing array of speakers on 20 April 2018 at Delhi Technological University from 11 AM – 7 PM. TEDx events are locally organized conferences licensed under TED, a non-profit organization devoted to ideas worth spreading.
The talks in the event will be centered about the theme ‘DEUX EX MACHINA’.
ABOUT THE THEME ‘DEUX EX MACHINA’ – The solution to a seemingly unsolvable problem. The entrance of a ‘god’ to bring an end to an unresolvable climax. The trump card. Referring to the introduction of these ideas, our theme, ‘Deus Ex Machina’ aims to coalesce with the very principle of TEDx– Ideas Worth Spreading. With issues arising in every field, our goal is to bring forth a series of revolutionary ideas which break the generic glass ceilings, and bring forth interesting outcomes. Rather than being unexpected twists in the scenarios, we aim to foster the generation of solutions which have been staring us in the face all along, and invoke conversations of its implications in the modern scenario.
The event will display a spectacular set of talks and performances, wherean august panel of speakers will encourage the audience to express themselves articulately by discussing innovative ideas and sharing impactful messages.
“This time we’re innovating at the highest levels to produce an event of global standards which will resonate amongst us all. We will see the reflection of our similarity in our uniqueness.”- quotes Nilasis Bhattacharya, Curator of TEDxDTU 2018.
