Women Designing the Future: Thinking About Things that Think

March 24 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Women Designing the Future–Think About things that Think–Conference Overview: Our March 24th conference focuses on the anticipated boom in consumer robots that many predict will fundamentally transform the ways in we live and work. We will explore the opportunities and challenges posed by this near-future world—and the crucial role that women are playing in creating (and critiquing) it.Conference speakers include pioneering Five Elements Robotics CEO Wendy Roberts, plus panelists from a variety of disciplines who will showcase robotics-driven innovations in their domains. The conference will explore the potential impact of these innovations on the quality of human life: the digital divide and social justice; concerns about privacy, security, trust, and emotional disconnection; and the specter of technological unemployment.
