Uniting Inspirational Innovators at UC San Diego

Innovators and visionaries united at the TEDx San Diego event on the UC San Diego campus over the weekend.  More than 20 speakers, representing numerous fields in academia, government and industry – from energy innovation and the arts to big data – talked about their exciting ideas to improve our society and our world.  The first speaker to address the crowd was Chancellor Khosla.  He set the stage for the conference, welcoming the audience and talking about the events theme, “Re-Think.”  He also encouraged more collaboration and innovation in research and education in order to solve pressing global challenges.
