Manoj Saxena is the General Manager of Watson Solutions at IBM, a team focused on building a computing system that rivals a human's ability to answer questions with speed and accuracy. Saxena was named "Entrepreneur of the Year" and "IT Technologist of the Year." Saxena created The Saxena Family Foundation to advance inventive and effective ways of promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Match) education. The Foundation's credo is "doing well by doing good." Saxena also serves on the boards of Global Giving, Austin Technology Council and Any Baby Can. 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.
