Disruptive tech: the unrecognizable new world of tech and culture
Tuesday Luncheon, 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Wearable tech, the cloud, drones, the quantified self, the Internet of Things, self-driving cars, augmented reality: the tech of our world is changing faster and faster. But the fascinating part is the effect it’s having on the society and culture we once new. What will life be like when printed newspapers and printed books are niche relics? What are the ramifications of the massive services-for-privacy trade that young people, especially, seem willing to make?
In this funny, fast-paced snapshot of the new world, Yahoo Tech columnist David Pogue will bring you up to date – and help you consider what we’ll gain, what we’ll lose, and what beliefs will shift into something we’ve never seen before.
