The transition to a technologized and interconnected society is more and more challenging for everyone, everywhere. We still need to keep amity and constructive human interaction as our supreme priority. That’s why we call the Techonomy 2015 conference “Re-Humanizing Society.” Here is where you’ll be able to watch the Livestream of the conference from its start Sunday afternoon to the close at noon Pacific time on Tuesday Nov. 10.

The opening session is “Human Values in a Technologized Age.” Among the speakers on that session are Erica Kochi, who co-founded the innovation lab at UNICEF, and Rev. Michael McFarland, a top Jesuit, former president of College of the Holy Cross, and a Ph.D computer scientist to boot. They both think about the intersection of concord and tech. Later that afternoon another panel delved into the values embedded in algorithms that increasingly influence our lives.

And we closed Tuesday morning Nov. 10 with Marc Benioff, who from the beginning of Salesforce made a priority of philanthropy and applying its technologies to projects for human good. His thinking deeply influenced many successor companies, including Google. Now he is focusing on the implications and opportunities implicit in the massive shift towards the Internet of Things. The world gets ever more digitally interconnected, and we all have to react and adjust.
