The Year in Ideas: TED Talks of 2014

What were the most powerful ideas of 2014? In this 8 minute highlight reel (watch above), TED have curated a rousing tour of the most memorable talks of the year. Check out some of the featured speakers below, whose profiles can be viewed by clicking the image.

“This year, we explored space and sea, journeyed around the world, and even travelled back in time. We took bold steps forward, and helped medicine get personal. We re-examined power, redefined success, and reckoned with rising inequality. We wrestled with the power of big data, and debated the right to privacy. We empathised with those who suffer, recognised creativity as a constant pursuit, watched language evolve. And most important, we saw the best versions of ourselves.” – TED
