Drones for good

Imagine a world where unmanned aircraft – drones – move among us, delivering pizzas or acting as a first responder to major natural disasters. It turns out we may not be that from this kind of technology becoming the norm.

According to Virgin Unite’s recent article, “How will we live with drones?” drone technology will soon be massively integrated into civilian and commercial life. The article describes a world only previously recognizable as science fiction, bringing with it many complex implications.This is where TED Fellow Anab Jain’s company Superflux comes in. Superflux is an interdisciplinary design-tech organization, working at the crux of emerging technologies. Under Jain’s direction, Superflux is making efforts to safeguard the positive potential of drone use, in hopes that drones might gain a wider acceptance as tools to better connect and stimulate our communities.

Whether or not this is a feasible goal for the near future is difficult to say, since opinions about these technological developments can be polarizing. It’s safe to say, however, that people are certainly engaging in conversation. Richard Branson, a big-time drone investor, showed his support by retweeting Virgin’s article on September 21, 2014 with the hashtag “drones4good.” While not everyone shares Branson’s enthusiasm, Superflux is working to bridge that gap is by encouraging people to experience their specialized drones firsthand.

From this came “Drone Aviary,” an installation originally scheduled to debut at the London Design Festival. The idea behind the installation was to provide an interactive space to familiarize people with specialized drones, ultimately creating a connection between humans and these technological newcomers. Superflux operates under the vision of humans and drones interacting in a responsible, sustainable fashion, with an unlimited potential to improve the safety and efficiency of a wide variety of activities—ranging anywhere from education, to 3-D mapping, or agriculture.

It seems clear that drone usage is no longer a question of “if,” but “when, and in what capacity?” The more pertinent question now seems to be how to mindfully go about that adaptation. As a frontrunner in the technological movement, Jain’s multidisciplinary scope of experience is sure to give a uniquely relevant perspective and understanding to the ever-growing conversation about drone technology.

Über TEDGlobal 2014

Als Teil des TEDGlobal-2014-Fellowship-Programms schließen sich die Fellows der TED Community in Rio de Janeiro, Brasilien, vom 6.-10. Oktober 2014 an. Dort werden sie als reguläre Teilnehmer der TEDGlobal-2014-Konferenz beiwohnen und im Anschluss an einer dreitägigen Fellows-Konferenz teilnehmen, die speziell darauf abzielt, sie zu inspirieren, zu stärken und ihre Arbeit zu unterstützen. Auf dieser Konferenz werden die Fellows in den Genuss von qualitativ hochwertigen Weiterbildungsworkshops kommen und einen kurzen Vortrag vor der TED-Community halten, der gefilmt und für die Veröffentlichung auf TED.com in Betracht gezogen wird. TED übernimmt die Kosten für den Eintritt zur Konferenz, Hin-und-Rückreise nach Rio de Janeiro, Brasilien, sowie die Unterkunft und Verpflegung während der TEDGlobal-2014-Konferenz vom 2.-11. Oktober 2014.

Das TED-Fellowship-Program

Das TED-Fellowship-Programm bringt junge Innovatoren aus der ganzen Welt zusammen, damit diese sich über ihre Arbeit austauschen sowie neue Fertigkeiten erwerben und sich in der TED-Community einbringen können. TED wählt jedes Jahr mit Hilfe eines umfangreichen Bewerbungsprozesses eine Gruppe von 40 herausragenden Persönlichkeiten aus der ganzen Welt aus und lädt sie zur TED- oder TEDGlobal-Konferenz ein. Während der TED-Konferenz nehmen die Fellows an einer nicht-öffentlichen Fellows-Konferenz teil, bei der sie die Möglichkeit haben, sich kennenzulernen, Ideen auszutauschen und an Weiterbildungsseminaren teilzunehmen. Sie werden auch auf ein paar Überraschungen treffen. Die TED-Fellows haben ebenfalls die einmalige Chance, ihre außergwöhnlichen Ideen in einem eigenen TED-Vortrag auf der Konferenz zu präsentieren.

Das TED-Fellows-Programm ist mit einem weltweiten Netzwerk von 328 Persönlichkeiten aus 83 verschieden Ländern ein Treffpunkt für fachübergreifende Zusammenarbeit und Innovation.

Vorteile des Programms

Im Laufe des TED-Fellowship-Porgramms haben die Stipendianten Zugriff auf alle laufenden Programme. Sie können am kostenlosen SupporTED-Programm teilnehmen, bei dem ihnen professionnelles Coaching und Mentoring angeboten wird. Sie können mit einem PR-Experten zusammenarbeiten, der sich der Veröffentlichung ihrer neuesten Erfolge widmet, und sie haben die Möglichkeit, einen Vertrag mit einem PR- oder Literaturagenten zu unterschreiben. TED-Fellows sind in einem privaten Online-Netzwerk sehr aktiv, welches ihnen eine fachübergreifende Zusammenarbeit ermöglicht. Sie organisieren regionale Treffen und Ausflüge. Sie bauen auf dem “Funken”, den sie bei der TED-Konferenz erstmalig erlebt haben, auf. Die TED-Fellows haben die Möglichkeit, sich für ein erweitertes zweijähriges Senior-Fellowship-Programm zu bewerben und sich noch mehr in der TED-Community zu engagieren.

TEDGlobal 2014 || Fellowship application website banner

Ai nên đăng kí?

Khác với phần nhiều chương trình dành cho các nhà lãnh đạo, chúng tôi tìm kiếm những đối tượng đặc biệt hơn để tham gia vào chương trình này. Chương trình Hội viên TED không hướng tới giới kinh doanh, các chuyên gia, nhà nghiên cứu chính sách hay cán bộ chính phủ, mà thay vào đó là những người ‘xắn tay áo và làm,’ những nhà sáng chế, luật sư, nhà làm phim và nhiếp ảnh gia, nghệ sĩ, nhà khoa học, các chủ doanh nghiệp, người điều hành các tổ chức phi chính phủ, và các nhà hoạt động nhân quyền. Chúng tôi tuyển chọn các cá nhân xuất sắc cho chương trình Hội viên TED trên khắp mọi lĩnh vực, dựa trên lịch sử thành tích, khả năng tạo ra ảnh hưởng tích cực, và dựa trên nhân cách của họ.

Đối tượng đăng kí tham gia phải trên 18 tuổi và phải thông thạo tiếng Anh. Chương trình Hội viên TED là một “gia đình” quốc tế, và chúng tôi đặc biệt khuyến khích các ứng viên Mỹ Latin tham gia vào chương trình Hội viên TEDGlobal 2014.

Về TEDGlobal 2014

Là một thành viên của chương trình Hội viên TEDGlobal 2014, các Hội viên sẽ tham gia hội thảo TEDGlobal 2014 cùng cộng đồng TED tại Rio de Janeiro, Brazil từ 6-10/10/2014. Trước đó, họ cũng sẽ tham gia vào chương trình tiền hội thảo, kéo dài ba ngày dành riêng cho Hội viên, được thiết kế đặc biệt để truyền cảm hứng và hỗ trợ các bạn. Tại hội thảo, các Hội viên sẽ được tham gia vào các khóa học kĩ năng ngắn và trình bày một bài nói chuyện TED Talk nhỏ cho cộng đồng TED. Bài nói này sẽ được ghi hình và cân nhắc lựa chọn đưa lên trang TED.com. Hội viên sẽ được nhận vé tham dự Hội thảo, vé khứ hồi đến Rio de Janeiro, Brazil và đài thọ mọi chi phí ăn ở trong suốt thời gian diễn ra TEDGlobal 2014 từ 2-11/10/2014.

Chương trình Hội viên TED

Chương trình Hội viên TED qui tụ những nhà sáng tạo trẻ đến từ khắp nơi trên thế giới, tạo điều kiện cho các bạn chia sẻ công việc của mình, tham gia vào cộng đồng TED và học hỏi kĩ năng mới. Mỗi năm, TED chọn ra 40 cá nhân xuất sắc từ khắp nơi trên thế giới, thông qua một quá trình tuyển chọn gắt gao, để tham gia vào hội thảo TED hoặc TEDGlobal. Tại Hội thảo, các cá nhân này sẽ tham gia vào các chương trình tiền hội thảo, được tổ chức dành riêng cho các Hội viên TED, nhằm tạo điều kiện cho các bạn gặp gỡ lẫn nhau, chia sẻ ‎ý tưởng, tham gia các khóa học xây dựng kĩ năng ngắn, và đón nhận một vài bất ngờ thú vị. Hội viên TED sẽ trình bày bài nói chuyện TED Talk của chính mình tại hội thảo – một cơ hội rất đặc biệt để các bạn lan truyền những ý‎ tưởng độc đáo của mình.

Với mạng lưới toàn cầu gồm 328 hội viên đến từ 83 quốc gia, chương trình Hội viên TED đóng vai trò là một trung tâm thúc đẩy sáng tạo và hợp tác liên ngành.

Lợi ích khi tham gia chương trình

Với tư cách là Hội viên TED, các bạn có thể tham gia vào bất kì chương trình hiện có nào của chúng tôi: Hội viên được tham gia miễn phí vào SupportTED (TED ‘hỗ trợ’), một chương trình huấn luyện và tư vấn chuyên nghiệp; làm việc với một chuyên gia PR chuyên nghiệp, giúp bạn chia sẻ những thành tích mới nhất, và có khả năng giúp bạn kí hợp đồng diễn thuyết hoặc xuất bản sách. Hội viên TED được tham gia vào một mạng lưới ảo riêng đặc biệt sôi nổi, tạo nhiều thuận lợi cho việc hợp tác đa ngành. Các Hội viên trong cùng khu vực địa lý sẽ tổ chức gặp gỡ offline và đi nghỉ cùng nhau, nhằm phát triển thêm dựa trên nền tảng mà Hội thảo TED khơi dậy. Hội viên TED cũng có cơ hội đăng kí tuyển chọn Hội viên Cao cấp, chương trình cho phép các bạn thêm hai năm để gắn bó chặt chẽ thêm với cộng đồng TED.

Il programma TED Fellowship

La Fellowship TED riunisce giovani innovatori di tutto il mondo perché condividano il loro lavoro, partecipino alla comunità TED e imparino nuove capacità. Ogni anno TED seleziona, attraverso un approfondito processo di candidature per la partecipazione alle conferenze TED o TEDGlobal, 40 individui di spicco provenienti da tutto il mondo. Alla conferenza TED i fellow partecipano ad un esclusivo incontro pre-conferenza in cui si incontrano, condividono idee, prendono parte a gruppi di lavoro e ricevono qualche piacevole sorpresa. Durante la conferenza, i TED fellow presentano anche un proprio intervento, un’opportunità senza eguali per diffondere le loro idee innovative.

Con una rete globale di 328 partecipanti, provenienti da 83 paesi, il programma di fellowship di TED è un vero e proprio centro nevralgico di innovazioni e collaborazioni interdisciplinari.

I benefit del programma di fellowship

Per la durata della loro fellowship, i fellow hanno pieno accesso agli eventi che organizziamo: partecipano inoltre a SupporTED, un programma professionale, gratuito, di coaching e mentoring. Possono inoltre collaborare con un esperto in pubbliche relazioni dedicato per condividere i loro risultati finali e hanno la possibilità di firmare un contratto con un editore o un organizzatore di conferenze. I TED fellow sono estremamente attivi in uno speciale network online privato che scaturisce in diverse collaborazioni interdisciplinari. Organizzano anche incontri regionali e convegni, così da lavorare sugli spunti nati durante la conferenza TED. I TED fellow hanno anche l’opportunità di candidarsi per una Senior Fellowship di due anni, a contatto con l’intera comunità TED.
