Prototyping the Future with Science Fiction

Join three bestselling science fiction authors as they discuss how sci-fi is increasingly being used—in corporate boardrooms, research labs, think tanks and even the halls of government—as a tool for innovation, strategic foresight, and generating positive future visions. Writers Madeline Ashby, Ramez Naam, and a surprise special guest—an Austin-native sci-fi author and cyberpunk visionary—will talk about their latest work in this area, including XPRIZE's new Science Fiction Advisory Council.
