This event is a live broadcast of the TEDxExeterSalon taking place at the Barnfield Theatre.


TEDxExeter is Exeter’s local ideas festival with global reach. Home to ‘Ideas worth spreading’, their speakers’ talks have been viewed almost 15 million times online.

TEDxExeter’s first Salon will explore how technology meets the real world, bringing together speakers from academia, the arts and innovative companies to discuss how technology is transforming our lives in ways that are exhilarating yet often controversial. They will share insights into how machines are teaching themselves to understand their environment, and how tech can reveal the collective consciousness – or hive mind – of large groups of people.

Speakers will include:

RAIA HADSELL, research lead on robot navigation and lifelong learning at Google DeepMind
ALASDAIR ALLAN, scientist, author, hacker, and journalist
SIMON JOHNSON, who uses games, play and agency to help people understand complex subjects
NEIL LAWRENCE, who leads Amazon Research Cambridge, where he is a director of machine learning
