Surely, we can "reset" technology when it is not working well or "rewind" the tape of our favourite scenes in movies. But not everything in this world can be rewind or can it? Being able to rewind back and prevent ourselves from making such a massive mistake seems ideal right? However, have you ever thought of what had happened should not be rewind or reset?

The present generation yields a level of technology that makes it extremely convenient for most people to access information. However, there are some who have yet to take advantage of this privilege, as well as a proportion of people who have been exposed to misinformation when using that very same platform.

Hence, TEDxHeriotWattUMalaysia wishes to rewind and reset your perception on various fields and topics out there, that are less well-known or commonly misinterpreted.
