Where technology meets culture

TED Tech is a two-day event to shape and seize our collective future.
Technology holds the fate of our organizations and our societies in its fingertips.
We’re gathering leaders, technologists, and creators to shape a tech-powered future worth celebrating — and navigate this age of uncertainty.

Meet at the intersection of tech, commerce and culture.

Technology drives our collective future.
It's a future which feels more uncertain than ever before.

Rapid advances in AI, blockchain and extended reality are rapidly driving us towards an awe-inspiring future. But what will a future built on extraordinary technological progress actually look like? How might society and culture change as a result? And how can we keep pace with the changes to ensure that the world we create is open and prosperous for all?

Hosted with

TED Tech will convene a group of future-focused minds in the heart of London. It’s up to leaders from the trinity of disciplines – technology, commerce and culture – to ensure that the future we’re hurtling towards is prosperous and welcoming for all. Join us to create societies worth celebrating, and help shape the future our world is hurtling towards.

Futurists, thinkers, and investors charged with anticipating and shaping the future – near and far.

What is Culture3?

Culture3 is a platform to engage society in the story of a better future.

We are facing existential technology disruption. Artificial intelligence could create a post-scarcity future, but also risks the decline of humanity. Blockchain could enable a truly prosperous digital commons, or it could empower financial anarchy. The metaverse promises super-communities, but digital isolation threatens that path.

Culture3 exists to guide the narrative to shape a more positive future. We believe that technology paves the road, but culture defines the destination. It is culture that inspires the action which dictates real-world outcomes. It is cultural narratives that most effectively drive change.

Our mission: harness the power of culture to ensure that new technologies deliver progress for all.

What is TED?

TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, but today it spans a multitude of worldwide communities and initiatives exploring everything from science and business to education, arts and global issues.

In addition to the hundreds of TED Talks curated from our annual conferences and published on, we produce original podcasts, short video series, animated TED-Ed lessons and TV programs that are translated into more than 100 languages and distributed via partnerships around the world.
