Futurecast: Reflecting on the Future of Tech

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 | 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM PT
AT&T Foundry, Palo Alto

If we stepped into a Delorean and accelerated to 88 mph, where will we be when we lift open the door? When we step out, will we be in a mixed reality world where everybody has a virtual assistant, lives to be over 100, and owns a self-driving car?

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
