Event description

Description

The sixth edition of TEDxMarrakesh will take place on Saturday October 21 2017 at Es Saadi Palace. This year TEDxMarrakesh will be more virtual than ever with the theme TRIBES AND TROLLS!

Today, we are living in a digitally connected, global world. But what does this actually mean? How are our lives really impacted by digitalization?

Do we define our world - or are we being defined? Who are our "real" friends? What do we really "like"? What means growing up in a digital world for the next generation? Many industries have been distrupted - more are still waiting for the big bang...

"Tribes and Trolls" is looking behind algorithms and programs that influence our lives today. Virtual reality, block chain, bitcoin, psychographics, artificial intelligence, social media, ... where are we standing now and even more important - where are we heading to?

We are looking forward again to an amazing set of speakers... we will update you on a regular basis here.


Here are the first two amazing speakers - more to be announced on the way - stay tuned!
