According to the IAI, the remodelled website will offer a “broader event format” than TED, which has had over 1 billion views since its introduction in 2006.
The IAI is a charitable organisation based in London that works to encourage and promote “cutting edge” intellectual debate. It organises annual philosophy festival HowTheLightGetsIn and arts festival Crunch, both of which take place in Hay-on-Wye in May and June.
The new website will feature solo talks and debates as well as ‘in conversations’ and an ‘intelligent interaction’ feature which will allow website users to jump between sections of debate.
Debates will cover a wide range of topics including questions of how we understand time, the future of the global economy and the intersection between sexual liberation and violence; contributors include Vince Cable, Steven Pinker and Zoe Williams.
