Small insect with even smaller brains still have to solve major problems on a daily basis. A desert living insect will for example quickly die if lost in the heat of the day. How does an insect with a brain smaller than a rice grain manage without a compass, or do they? Can insects play football, do they dance and can they see things that we cannot see? Biologist Marie Dacke is an award winning speaker who among other things studies flight control and navigation in insects.
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)
