Event description

Description

In today’s increasingly polarized and opinion-driven world, where willful ignorance and deliberate anti-intellectual campaigns appear to be on the rise within society, what is Signal and what is Noise? Whose ideas are worth listening to (and amplified), and whose distractions and untruths should be tuned out?

For 2017, TEDxCalgary launched an immersive series of events to engage our city in these questions. Complementing the TED2017 theme, “The Future You”, we’re bringing together an incredible group of speakers to challenge our assumptions about the world around us, spark our imaginations about the potential future in front of us, and help give us the perspectives to navigate a journey that demands even more profound wisdom from human beings, individual acts of courage to change, and a shared collective vision for tomorrow.

It all comes together on November 4th, 2017 in a crescendo of experiences, ideas and dialogue. Two years in the making, Signal vs Noise takes you on a journey against a backdrop of the human story, drawing on Humanity’s heritage and collective knowledge to help us peer into the murky future.

Our speakers are dreamers and doers, technologists and entrepreneurs, business leaders and creators. All will be bold and provocative in their perspectives, at a time when humanity most needs innovative ideas that can be nurtured and amplified to meet the volatile, uncertain, complex and adaptive challenges that surround us.
