Discussion of "The Coming Wave"
Tuesday, November 21, 2023
07:15 PM - 08:30 PM
This event will be held online via Zoom.
The Austin Forum on Technology & Society covers any and all technologies that are influencing and impacting how we interact, work, learn, innovate and discover, run our companies and organizations, and more. We also frequently discuss how knowledge, and technology capabilities, are expanding exponentially and the challenges this presents. For our November book discussion, we will discuss a book that brings all of this together: how we adapt to all of the transformational changes that AI everywhere, synthetic biology and DNA printers, quantum computing, robots and autonomous devices, abundant green energy, and more will have on our lives, organizations, and planet. Join us for a thought-provoking look at the very near future, and a discussion of what we can, and must, do to make these imminent transformational changes positive.
