Meat production is destroying the planet and jeopardizing our health, but people aren't going to eat less meat unless we give them alternatives that cost the same (or less) and that taste the same (or better). In an eye-opening talk, food innovator and TED Fellow Bruce Friedrich shows the plant- and cell-based products that could soon transform the global meat industry -- and your dinner plate.
Bill Gates hopes to solve some of the world's biggest problems using a new kind of philanthropy. In a passionate and, yes, funny 18 minutes, he asks us to consider two big questions and how we might answer them. (And see the Q&A on the TED Blog.)
"Confidence is the necessary spark before everything that follows," says educator and activist Brittany Packnett. In an inspiring talk, she shares three ways to crack the code of confidence -- and her dream for a world where revolutionary confidence helps turn our most ambitious dreams into reality.
In a talk about understanding and practicing the art of healthy relationships, Katie Hood reveals the five signs you might be in an unhealthy relationship -- with a romantic partner, a friend, a family member -- and shares the things you can do every day to love with respect, kindness and joy. "While love is an instinct and an emotion, the ability to love better is a skill we can all build and improve on over time," she says.
Recorded live at TED2019 for the TED Interview podcast: Roger McNamee -- early investor in Facebook turned outspoken critic -- sits down for an extended examination of big tech's missteps, and where we go from here.
E-cigarettes and vapes have exploded in popularity in the last decade, especially among youth and young adults -- from 2011 to 2015, e-cigarette use among high school students in the US increased by 900 percent. Biobehavioral scientist Suchitra Krishnan-Sarin explains what you're actually inhaling when you vape (hint: it's definitely not water vapor) and explores the disturbing marketing tactics being used to target kids. "Our health, the health of our children and our future generations is far too valuable to let it go up in smoke -- or even in aerosol," she says.
"If I should have a daughter, instead of Mom, she's gonna call me Point B ... " began spoken word poet Sarah Kay, in a talk that inspired two standing ovations at TED2011. She tells the story of her metamorphosis -- from a wide-eyed teenager soaking in verse at New York's Bowery Poetry Club to a teacher connecting kids with the power of self-expression through Project V.O.I.C.E. -- and gives two breathtaking performances of "B" and "Hiroshima." Sarah is also the host of TED's podcast "Sincerely, X." You can listen on the Luminary podcast app at luminary.link/ted.
Ever wonder how we poop? Learn about the gut -- the system where digestion (and a whole lot more) happens -- as doctor and author Giulia Enders takes us inside the complex, fascinating science behind it, including its connection to mental health. It turns out, looking closer at something we might shy away from can leave us feeling more fearless and appreciative of ourselves.
Sleep is your life-support system and Mother Nature's best effort yet at immortality, says sleep scientist Matt Walker. In this deep dive into the science of slumber, Walker shares the wonderfully good things that happen when you get sleep -- and the alarmingly bad things that happen when you don't, for both your brain and body. Learn more about sleep's impact on your learning, memory, immune system and even your genetic code -- as well as some helpful tips for getting some shut-eye.
You use your brain's executive function every day -- it's how you do things like pay attention, plan ahead and control impulses. Can you improve it to change for the better? With highlights from her research on child development, cognitive scientist Sabine Doebel explores the factors that affect executive function -- and how you can use it to break bad habits and achieve your goals.

If you're focused on the last election, you don't understand the gravity of the issue. It's not a Democrat/Republican issue; it's a whole lot bigger than that.

i pray for a quick resolution to this goliath of a problem in our country... these shady, predatory, & curiously legal practices ruin thousand of lives year after year... i for one am sick of witnessing & personally experiencing the manipulation. 😞 the ill & the suffering are people too. our "civilized" society treats them as 'less than' & allows for such abuses of power as these. a bout of poor health should not have the ability to bankrupt a previously financially stable individual, to tear apart families out of stress, or to endebt anybody for the rest of their lives. something needs to change, & i hope one day soon 'we the people' can gain the information necessary to begin to alter the path of the current inertia of this massive malignant force.

absolutely agree with richard's comment! bravo to lindy lou for her brave inward soul-searching when she feared she may not like the answer she found & for her unwavering transparency & admission of human fallibility in the face of derision from her peers & even those close to her. i applaud her for her perseverance & believe her seeking out her fellow jurors was such a crucial step in regaining some peace of mind. i really appreciated the relaxed manner in which she spoke while still pressing her point. it made me feel as a listener that i wasn't getting lectured by somebody who loves to hear themself talk, as some ted preaentations that i've listened to have made me feel at times. & bonus points for such a soothing accent/dialect! thank you lindy lou, what an incredible lesson for us all.

wow, everything you mentioned I was in few months ago.all the signs where there but I wasn't educated to recognize them. he made me think that this is what relationship is about "all about him" but the minute I talked to someone professional they told me it was abuse,it's not healthy.so I broke up with him

Russians spent 100k on adverts. HRC spent 2.1B but couldn’t win. Dems and Liberals need to get their head out of their rear and realize that HRC was an atrocious fraudulent candidate. HRC lost the election all by herself. The rest of this talk is delusional.

DG Funds deluded is you who think taking our privacy and sell it to others is right..Ask yourself will you allow your lawyer or doctor to sell your confidential talks or issue..they will get sued then why a different treatment to techs. I hope u realise that the next generation is high tech only and we need a strict foundation from now so next generation AI and the people who running it is under control.

Wait...so instead of asking why black girls have so many behavioral problems you ask why they’re being targeted for punishment?

Unfortunately, this speaker's arguments for increasing birth rate again despite the major challenges that threaten our very existence as a species i.e. climate change and mass species extinction - are not only illogical but are poorly thought out. Disappointed that TED chose such a poor talk.

how to keep human bias out of AI... have a diverse team of humans developing the AI? this title is misleading. human bias goes much further than this. the title should be: "how to make AI not racist or sexist"
