The University of Chicago’s Technology and Society is a full day event, hosting both domestic and international speakers. The conference will explore the way that human beings and technology will evolve together in the future, both near and distant. Unlike most technology conferences, in addition to discussing technological advances, we are also going to focus on the way that this will impact human society. This event is open to the public. The conference is free and open to the public, and will be held at the University of Chicago's International House on Saturday, May 2, 2015 from 9 am - 5 pm, in association with the Global Voices Program. Free breakfast and lunch will be provided. Please be sure to preregister! 20 lucky preregisters will be invited to a special VIP dinner after the conference with the speakers and moderators. You can also submit questions to the conference before it happens. The moderators will choose some of your questions to ask to the speaker. Persons with disabilities who may need assistance should contact the Office of Programs & External Relations in advance of the program at +1 (773) 753-2274.
