Autonomous fish robots and bio-inspired engineering

See how engineers are learning from biological systems to solve problems beyond what our current technologies have been able to achieve. Mathematical models, based on studies of fish, is allowing designed engineered systems to prototype robotic fish that can operate in dynamic ocean conditions over months of continuous use.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSeattle, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSeattle event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
