Amy Webb’s Emerging Tech Trends for 2020

May 5, 2020 | 11:00am – 12:00pm CT


You’ve seen her launch her annual tech trends report at SXSW — now get ready for a deep dive into the trends you need to follow in 2020 and how the global coronavirus fits in. During this provocative session, futurist Amy Webb, professor at NYU Stern School of Business and founder of the Future Today Institute, will detail the trends you should be focused on and she’ll share optimistic and catastrophic scenarios describing plausible futures. The session will include an “Ask Me Anything” conversation, where she’ll answer any and all questions you have about tech trends, uncertainty, and how we should be thinking about the future. As always, Amy will curate a digital folder just for SXSW: you’ll get a bunch of open source research and tools, you’ll get an exclusive interactive version of the 2020 Trend Report, and this year Amy is going to share her RSS feed to help you start thinking like a futurist.
