Technology Trends 2019
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Join us this Sep 27 for the re-launch of the Vancouver Innovation Labs. We never went away, but we’ve been dormant for quite some time. What better way to reconnect than by doing what we do best: a session of forward-looking scenarios and the ensuing discussions of key emerging technologies and fringe scientific discoveries that are poised to disrupt establishing industries, business models and generate long-term impact innovations.

We’ll be talking about specific technology examples in 3 horizons + 1:

Horizon 1: Technology happening now
Horizon 2: Near future (10-20 years)
Horizon 3: Distant future (20+ years)
Ghost Tech: Fringe science/tech

We’ll run the classics: crypto, IoT, big data and some of the more esoteric newcomers: internet of DNA, shape-shifting matter, asteroid mining and others.

Also, we will have a surprise activity.
