This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Discovery often happens outside your comfort zone. It’s when you step out into the unknown that interesting discoveries start to take place. When they do, it’s your responsibility to share the knowledge with society.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
