In an ever more connected society, both solitude and opportunities can arise in unexpected places. From healthcare to technology, from education to commerce, outside thinkers with novel insights have an unprecedented chance to change our view of the world and how the people within it live. At TEDxAIMS we explored stories of isolation and individualism and of how great ideas are reshaping the ways in which we interact with one another.

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 events are called TEDxAIMS, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxAIMS event, TEDTalks video and live speakers 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.
