Throughout the TED community, and that of the University, we can find astounding progress wherever we care to look: Research, business, politics, and environmental issues, and education are just a few of the fields in which leaps and bounds are constantly made.

But more importantly, we will be talking about where those discoveries will lead us, and how we should implement it.
