What is the theme for this year’s TEDxAthens?

“In the luminous heart of Athens, where ancient myths meet cutting-edge innovation, TEDxAthens is set to embark on a momentous journey as it celebrates its 15th anniversary. With the theme “X Machina,” we invite you to delve into the intricate tapestry of humanity’s modern odyssey—a narrative woven with threads of technological marvels, human ingenuity, and ethical reckonings.

As the world hurtles towards an era of unprecedented technological advancement, the line between the natural and the artificial blurs. “X Machina” beckons us to explore this convergence, to ponder the profound implications, and to chart a course guided by wisdom and compassion.

At TEDxAthens 2024, visionaries, innovators, and thought leaders from around the globe will converge to illuminate the path forward.

Against the backdrop of ancient ruins and modern marvels and hosted for the first time at Athens & Epidaurus Festival Pireos 260, TEDxAthens 2024 will serve as a crucible for dialogue, exploration, and inspiration, embodying the spirit and timeless concept of “Deus ex Machina” in today’s complex world.

Welcome to TEDxAthens 2024: “X Machina”, where Humanity Meets its Digital Destiny”
