TED Themes of Invention

TED stands for technology, engineering and design. It describes itself as “a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading.” The means by which the foundation spreads the ideas are conferences in various parts of the world, videos of the presentations to those conferences and an annual TES prize.

Some of these presentations are grouped into themes and one of my favourite themes is the Tales of Invention theme. One of the most exciting presentations is Tan Le’s “A Headset that reads your brainwaves”. Tan Le demonstrates a new computer interface that quite literally reads the user’s mind.

About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
