http://www.tedxlausanne.org - Laurent Keller is an evolutionary biologist and an expert on the behavior of social insects, specifically ants. In his talk, he reveals some of the fascinating observations his lab has made on the complex social organization of these animals, living in societies comprising thousands of individuals. Prof. Keller also draws some conclusions on the implications for human society and how information and transport can be optimized.

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)
