Reflections from Ross: How the Election Changed Techonomy 2016

The plan was always to start the conference with a group discussion about the election. How could we not if our conference started the day after the election? But the triumph of Trump put a rather different spin on things. In general the mood of the room was shock and numbness. For me, it highlighted that no matter how much we talk about tech and its ability to connect us, it is degrading our ability to see beyond our bubbles.   More

TE16: Climate Change Calls for “Taboo Techs”

Speakers on climate change at TE16 aimed to dispel the stigma associated with nuclear power and geo-engineering–controversial technologies that might help address the climate change caused by humankind’s use of fossil fuels.

Reflections from Ross: Two weeks until Techonomy 2016!

With two weeks until Techonomy 2016, Nov. 9-11, there is lots of fine tuning underway here. The big news this week is that Mark Zuckerberg will join us.

Clinton, Trump, and the World’s Choices

The world is at a turning point and we have to choose. It is astonishing and daunting how fully Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump symbolize the choice the world faces. Watching their debate last week underscored for me not just how different the two of them are, but how different are the possible futures that confront the world.   More

Reflections from Ross: On Techonomy 2016 (of course)

We’re 6 weeks out from our annual Techonomy conference. It starts the day after the election, so we’ll talk intensely about what the outcome means for business, the tech industry, and tech as a tool. Much content this year relates to the continuing march of the Internet of Things. And we'll tackle longer-term questions like whether, once AI intersects with the IoT, this ultimately leads to a sentient cyber ecosystem that intuits and responds to our every move. We'll also talk about cities, shipping, and social media. It's the conference for people who want to understand tech deeply so they can be more effective.   More

Our Weird Possible Data-Centric Futures: Listen as We Plan Techonomy 2016

Listen in to Techonomy's program planners as they discuss some big issues we're building sessions around for the Techonomy 2016 conference, November 9-11 in California. This year we’ve honed in on the reality that the world is entering a completely new era, as data-gathering of all sorts accumulates across global society. How will society determine who gets to control and utilize data about people? How much will people get access to data about themselves and their communities? What relative powers over data will companies, governments, and individuals have?   More

Reflections from Ross: Why “Genetically Modified Everything” is so important to what we do at Techonomy

The global biotech market is estimated to have a value of $604.40 billion by 2020. Techonomy program director Ross explains how central the theme is to us, and a bit of her own history of fascination with it. This year at TE16 we’re continuing this exploration into the industries being changed by life science, the technologies, the benefits and yes, the controversies.   More

Reflections from Ross…On Techonomy 2016!

One of the first things we’ll do at TE16 this year is have a conversation about what just happened in this epochal American election. That will kick off two solid days of amazing presentations and discussions. The conference theme is “Toward A Sentient Ecosystem,” or how the Internet of Things knits together signals and data from an increasingly vast connected intelligent network that can span from the depths of our bodies to outer space, and what that means for people.   More
