Throughout history there were many revolutions: in technology, in economics, in society, in politics. But one thing always remained constant: humanity itself. We still have the same bodies, the same brains, and the same minds as our ancestors in ancient China or in the Stone Age. Our tools and institutions are very different from those of Confucius’s time, but the deep structures of the human body and mind remain the same.
However, the next big revolution of history will change that. In the twenty-first century, there will again be many revolutions in technology, in economics, in politics. But for the first time in history, humanity itself will also undergo a radical revolution. Not only our society and economy, but our bodies and minds will be transformed by new technologies such as genetic engineering, nanotechnology and brain-computer interfaces.
Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before – Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking, Fast and Slow
Dr Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and now lectures at the Department of History, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specialising in World History. 'Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind', published in 2014, was on the Sunday Times bestseller list for over six months in paperback, was a New York Times top ten bestseller and has been published in nearly 40 languages worldwide.

Nationalism vs. globalism: the new political divide | Yuval Noah HarariHow do we make sense of today's political divisions? In a wide-ranging conversation full of insight, historian Yuval Harari places our current turmoil in a broader context, against the ongoing disruption of our technology, climate, media -- even our notion of what humanity is for. This is the first of a series of TED Dialogues, seeking a thoughtful response to escalating political divisiveness. Make time (just over an hour) for this fascinating discussion between Harari and TED curator Chris Anderson.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
Israel: Leading the World in Water TechnologySurrounded by and populated with deserts, Israel has famously created a green, agricultural oasis out of its arid landscape. This was made possible by the incredible advances that Israeli scientists and researchers have been making since Israel gained its independence in 1948. Israel’s first Prime Minister David Ben Gurion had a vision of “making the desert bloom”, which catapulted water technology research onto the national agenda, where it has remained ever since.
Through a combination of conservation, reuse and desalination, the country now has more water than it needs.
The Israeli water industry is widely acknowledged as a world leader, especially with its market-leading, entrepreneurial technologies in the areas of desalination, water treatment, drip irrigation and water security.
Today, water poor countries in Asia and Africa are already benefiting from Israeli-driven water technologies. In China alone, huge desalination plants based on Israeli water technology are providing water to millions of people by combining innovation with sustainability. Israel is proposing collaboration with countries worldwide on existing and new water-technologies.
Israel may be a desert country with a serious lack of water, but what’s not lacking is the ingenuity and creativity to make up for it with breakthrough water technologies that are helping people around the world maximize and enrich the water they have.
Hij stond (per ongeluk!) aan de basis van China's eenkindpolitiekWe kunnen wel stoppen met vlees eten, nooit meer met de auto gaan of vliegtuigen afschaffen, maar het beste voor het milieu is om ons niet meer voort te planten. Of zoals in China: de eenkindpolitiek. Maar wie zorgde (per ongeluk) voor dit beleid?
