Filtered Reality: The importance of what you don't see.
Our judgments and decisions are sometimes adversely affected by things that we do not observe. Much of our perceptions are based on information that is readily available to us. By going beyond this filter of availability, we can improve our decisions and well-being.
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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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)
