The Futurecast Technology Innovation Series

The Futurecast Technology Innovation Series is a series of discussion-based events that bring together leaders in technology, government, business and beyond. Featuring guests like Sebastian Thrun, Gavin Newsom, and Steve Case, the discussions revolve around how technology is shaping our world. Each event focuses on a single topic, such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence, or entertainment. Our attendees debate and challenge one another to vet current solutions and propose new ones to move our collective technology future forward.

Outcomes of Futurecast

The goal of Futurecast is to move the conversation forward on a specific topic via a salon-type discussion, rather than one-way sharing. We aim to engage partners in the space with the best possible outcome being a follow-up project or partnership between the Foundry and participating organizations.
