Featured Session: The Future of Sex

Bryony takes you on a journey across cultures to investigate tech-led responses to the most pressing human problems centered around the future of sex.
From start-ups in Iran to combat domestic abuse to anti-groping technology in Japan and the incredible technology defending children from online predators globally. She offers a fascinating insight into how the collaborative use of technology can support the front lines of intimacy safety for women and children.
She urges us to better understand the expansiveness of sextech, a $30billion industry which sits at the intersection of technology and sexuality more broadly. Sextech includes sex education, intimacy skills, gender identity, crime and violence reporting, medicine (and much more); vast technologies that will disrupt, innovate and enhance these areas of our sexual lives.
