Our 2016 event was a new type of TEDxBoston, as we went deep on a trailblazing topic: artificial intelligence and machine learning. We heard world-renowned experts share stories exploring the profound changes AI and machine learning are making in the realms of education, work, medicine and society.
Since 2009, TEDxBoston has always been focused on sharing revolutionary ideas worth spreading. This year, in a new intimate format, we explored an area that is already making significant changes in all our lives – and it’s only just beginning.
TEDxBoston 2016 was an invitation-only event. We livestreamed the entire event online, and we'll post all talks for everyone to watch at any time.
Dedicated to Jimmy Guterman
TEDxBoston 2016 was dedicated to a kindhearted, funny, and constantly curious person who was a tremendous collaborator, leader, and friend. Since 2010, his passion enabled TEDxBoston to create outstanding moments for attendees, speakers, and our team. Jimmy is beloved by many and truly missed.
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 event is called TEDxBoston, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBoston event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will 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.Learn more at: http://www.ted.com/tedx

What happens when a group of people rally around a radical idea and set in motion unlimited possibilities for a brighter future? A Revolution.
More than two centuries ago, ordinary citizens in Boston dreamed of a democracy and launched a revolution that changed the course of human history in extraordinary ways. That innovative spirit still thrives today in our forward thinkers and accomplished doers. At TEDxBoston, we celebrate their ideas and their passion for improving the way citizens of the world learn, live, give, work, and play.
