Tech forward – human centered
Technology is marching forward at a breathtaking pace. In fact, we have entered a time where technology is learning from technology – without us. To not have our own technology advance beyond us, we must develop as human beings. This means we need to get deeper access to ourselves and each other.
At this event, a digital transformation executive Noah Ullman, Technology Ethicist, David Ryan Polgar and Future Designer Brent Robertson will lead us in a conversation about how the confluence of the evolving needs of society and the advancement of technology has invited us to take a good hard look at our own ambitions as human beings in an age where our very purpose as a species is a new chapter waiting to be written.
The future will be owned by those courageous enough to create it
For leaders who aspire to create a world where more of us can thrive, this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to not only dive into a conversation on the very edge of what’s unfolding but to design conditions that encourage others to join in and to get in front of what’s happening.
