A User’s Manual to Techonomy Health and NYC in Mid-May

Techonomy's conferences about tech's impact are absurdly ambitious. But that's what makes them unique, useful, and fun. To understand what's happening because of tech in the world you need to discuss way more than the next iPhone or what's happening in the tech industry. We like to say every company is a tech company. Our Health and NYC events May 16th & 17th are for anyone who wants to understand where the world is heading and what it means for business.   More

What role will tech companies play, compared to those traditionally focused on health? Will AI alter the industry balance of power?   More
