We see hashtags on advertisements and social media, but also on people. When you encounter someone new, you put hashtags on them: #hku #abc #champ. But do these hashtags help you get to know someone or something better? In this year's TEDxHKU #Hashtag conference, we proudly present six speakers from diverse backgrounds- from marketing and data science to mental health and well-being to arts and literature. Hoping to give you a new perspective on seeing things.

What does hashtag actually mean to us? What do we talk about when we talk about an individual? Does it all trickle down to one hashtag? In a world of algorithms, identifying ourselves seems easier but also harder. Join us to embark on this journey of deconstructing and reconstructing YOUR very own hashtags! RSVP now!
