NEW IDEAS THAT PAINT A BIGGER PICTURE.
10 SEPTEMBER 2022
About the theme: FILL IN THE _____ .
What word were you thinking of?
Our brain has the astonishing capability to fill in missing words in a ________. It sees context, compares it with its database of memories and picks what fits the most. Because we all have different sets of memories, we don’t all get the same answer. Think of human knowledge as a puzzle and problem-solving as putting its pieces together. Naturally, you start with what is in your local field of view. The underestimated next step is finding what is not.
Without looking beyond our own horizon, it’s not possible to realize how our individual knowledge connects to other information, currently out of reach. Without putting it in context, it’s like trying to solve a puzzle without knowing what the picture looks like. Like only using the back where all the pieces are gray.
Join us at TEDxTUM 2022 and get inspired by our speakers, showcasing their parts of the puzzle, because it might just be the blank that you’ve been missing to get a glimpse at the bigger _______.
