What is the Unknown?

Thanks to human ingenuity and advancements in technology, the world today is more equipped with the right tools to uncover the mysteries of the universe than ever before.  Despite the wealth of knowledge created since the 20th century, we are only beginning to understand the amount of information that is unknown to us.  As we continue to build our atlas of human knowledge, we rely on experts, pioneers, thinkers, and problem solvers to take us on this voyage of discovery.  How will these answers help shape our future or change our perception of the past?  This year,  TEDxTaipei is inviting artists, explorers, pioneers, disruptors, and storytellers to help us understand such ideas from a broad spectrum.  Join us as we venture into the world of unknown.
