Technology is now fundamental to most every aspect of society, enabling almost everything we do. It is easy to take for granted how transformative some current technologies were, as we rapidly become used to innovations that seemed almost magical at the outset. Computers, the Internet, the Web, PCs, laptops & WiFi, smartphones, home AI devices, wearable devices, and more have moved from amazing to expected as innovations becomes mainstream.
However, we always desire more: new, better ways to work, learn, be entertained, and to improve our health, safety, and mobility. What’s next? What technologies and innovations are poised to amaze us in 2019, to change our lives and society.. and then to become mainstream, leading the way to still more new ideas and innovations?
In what is becoming a favorite annual Austin Forum tradition, the Technology Trends for 2019 (and Beyond) will share the insights and expectations of some of Austin’s leading technology experts. Come learn, discuss, debate, and meet a wide range of technology professionals and leaders, innovators and influences, and advocates and enthusiasts!
We welcome your participation! Please send us your questions, answers, and prognostications in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Admission to the Austin Forum is always free.
The Austin Forum accepts donations of used cell phones, smart phones, tablets and e-book readers at all our events. All devices will have a factory reset and be set up as new by the team at Austin Pathways’ nationally-recognized “Unlocking the Connection” initiative, which will connect every public housing resident with a digital device, digital literacy training, and a free or very low-cost internet connection. Your donated phone can change lives and help close Austin's digital divide, thanks to Austin Pathways.
Thanks to Austin Public Library for their partnership.
And a special thanks to all our sponsors!
