Philadelphia Futurism: a local take on the next 20 years

The world will change more in the next 20 years than in the past 300 years. Artificial intelligence, self driving cars, robotics, the blockchain, the internet of things–the list goes on! Exponential technologies will produce waves of change, some good, others not so good. How will Philadelphia ride those waves? Will we drive change, or will we be driven by it?

Join us for this exciting presentation and discussion, where a diverse panel of local experts will help us explore how the technological “Megashifts” of today will affect the Philadelphia of tomorrow.

Refreshments will be provided.
