Augmented Reality. Neural Networks. Cryptocurrency. 4D Printing. Smart Dust. We are surrounded by a whirlwind of amazing technological innovations, but which ones will go big and which will go bust? How will emerging consumer trends, technology evolutions and social good sector strategies all come together? That’s what this session is all about. Join Steve and Bernard as they explore the potential perils and possibilities of the not-too-distant future. They won’t just be tossing out buzzwords either – instead, this will be a spirited debate about how trends and tech will impact the social good sector.
