You are cordially invited to the next TEDxTheHague salon! Our March edition — themed Looking for problems — is curated by TEDxTheHague:

"Looking for problems surely has a bad rep. Something only a negative Nancy or Ned would enjoy. As the saying goes: 'Go looking for problems and you are sure to find them!' But of course, our world is full of problems that need to be solved. So let's go problem-hunting and make sure we find them. Because this might well cause a lot of solutions."

We'll explore this theme by watching and discussing the following videos:

Tony Fadell: The first secret of design is ... noticing
As human beings, we get used to "the way things are" really fast. But for designers, the way things are is an opportunity ... Could things be better? How? In this funny, breezy talk, the man behind the iPod and the Nest thermostat shares some of his tips for noticing — and driving — change.

Humanoid Robot Shows Off Gymnastic Routine
Boston Dynamics released a video of their humanoid robot, Atlas, showing off its gymnastics routine. The robot uses its legs, arms and torso to complete a number of gymnastic manoeuvres that mirror a human athlete’s routine.

Amy Herman: A lesson on looking
Are you looking closely? Visual educator Amy Herman explains how to use art to enhance your powers of perception and find connections where they may not be apparent. Learn the techniques Herman uses to train Navy SEALs, doctors and crime scene investigators to convert observable details into actionable knowledge with this insightful talk.

Christina Wallace: How to stop swiping and find your person on dating apps
Let's face it, online dating can suck. So many potential people, so much time wasted — is it even worth it? Podcaster and entrepreneur Christina Wallace thinks so, if you do it right. In a funny, practical talk, Wallace shares how she used her MBA skill set to invent a "zero date" approach and get off swipe-based apps — and how you can, too.
