Henrik Schärfe: “Henrik Schärfe was a little-known professor at Denmark’s Aalborg University until he began appearing on YouTube and at TED conferences with his doppelgänger, Geminoid-DK. The robot looks a lot like Schärfe, 44, so it’s very cool — and pretty creepy. But that’s Schärfe’s point.”

José Andrés: “Suddenly I heard a familiar laugh, headed down to the bar and found José Andrés holding court with journalists on behalf of a solar-powered cookstove that cheaply boils water for people with little or no access to fuel. Encountering José in a crumbling hotel in Haiti was entirely to be expected.”
José Andres is speaking this week at TEDxSummit! Watch for his TEDTalk to be posted soon.
Salman Khan: “Like a lot of great innovators, Salman Khan didn’t set out to change the world. He was just trying to help his teenage cousin with her algebra from across the country. But from a closet turned office in his Silicon Valley apartment, Sal, 35, has produced an amazing library of online lectures on math, science and a host of other subjects.”
