Futurecast is a curated, intimate discussion with thought leaders designed to vet, debate, and ultimately spark ideas that will set the course for our collective technological future.

Join Us for the last Futurecast of 2017

Futurecast: Reflecting on the Future of Tech

How are the decisions made today impacting what our world looks like tomorrow? As we create algorithms for AI, how do we ensure we aren’t codifying biases? How will we discern what’s real versus “fake news”? Where will healthcare innovation take us, and how can we get there faster?

Join Ericsson and the AT&T Foundry as we speak with Ina Fried, Chief Technology Correspondent at Axios, to explore the future of technology and society and with moderator Andrew Keen.

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.

What makes Futurecast unique?

Futurecast is a curated, intimate discussion with thought leaders designed to vet, debate, and ultimately spark ideas that will set the course for our collective technology future. To date, more than 1100 industry leaders and visionaries have attended Futurecast discussions this year. Attendees include entrepreneurs, government officials, investors, academics, authors and media. We film the sessions, and make the content available on various media sites.

For highlights, see Past Events.

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.

Futurist Reports

The AT&T Foundry, Ericsson, and RocketSpace introduce The Futurist Reports, an inside look into the technologies of tomorrow.

Each report includes an industry-wide view from a diverse array of leading experts and features select startups at the forefront of technology. We delve into broader business implications of these technologies and explore indicators such as collaborations, investments, market demands, and technology advancements.
