Edward Waters College “TIGERTALKS EXPERIENCE”

This is a great idea to use TED and TEDx. We started our TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures by doing a TEDx style event with speakers “PTK UpsilonEta – A TED inspired student event” and then “UofS Talks” at University of Scouting. These initiatives are great to practice sharing ideas in a 18-minute speech format. We are looking forward to see your students as guest speakers of TEDxFSCJ Salon. This is more challenging as they have to compress their ideas to 5 minutes. I am sure these speaking experiences have a huge impact in our students.

This talk was given at first TEDxFSCJ 2014, a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In this charming talk, Dr. Katheleen Ciez-Volz dives into the importance and need for all of us to reject fear and embarrassment over mistake-making, and instead take risks and embrace the possibility of mistakes for the sake of lifelong learning.

There is a mind-boggling amount of data floating around our society. Physicists at CERN have been pondering how to store and share their ever more massive data for decades – stimulating globalization of the internet along the way, whilst ‘solving’ their big data problem. Tim Smith plots CERN’s involvement with big data from fifty years ago to today.

Discussions:

Why big data is important in the creation and development of useful databases? What is the connection with business intelligence?

How big data is useful to solve environmental issues?
