In every aspect of life, change occurs regardless of whether it has the permission to do so or not. Revolutionary transformations, minute alterations and slight modifications all persist to create diversity in a world otherwise doomed to monotony.
What if it’s possible that a single occurrence, no matter how small, can change the course of the universe forever. A butterfly flapping its wings in Japan can cause a hurricane in America a few days later. What if it’s possible that every little action, is far more significant than one perceives it to be. TEDxMAIS 2018 invites you to share your experience on an occurrence so small, it changed the world from as you once saw it.
We invite you explore your story with us and experience the world from an insignificant perspective that turned into a momentous one. A bizarrely trivial event that created colossal change- your butterfly effect.
What is 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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.)
TEDxMAIS is a student-run TEDx event that happens every year at Mallya Aditi International School Bangalore. The event has been a longstanding part of Aditi's identity. This is the seventh year of TEDxMAIS.
Arindam is a physics researcher and professor based out of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. He has previously operated out of the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. His current research is centred around the application of nanotechnology: including the transport properties of two-dimensional electronic systems in semiconductors, carbon-based low-dimensional systems, optoelectronic properties of atomically-thin semiconductor membranes, magnetic nanostructures, and structural stability of nanoscale systems such as metallic nanowires and nanoparticles.
