Tech Trends at Austin Forum on Jan 8
Will 2019 be the year of the mega smart robot or the social media re-boot? During the next 12 months, are we finally going to see flying cars — or simply watch thousands of additional scooters flood city streets? Can virtual reality finally live up to its decades of hype?
Learn all this and more at the next edition of the Austin Forum on the evening of Tuesday, January 8. Titled “Top Tech Trends for 2019 and Beyond,” this session will review what innovations are poised to amaze us in the coming year. Speakers for this session include Jay Williams (the founder and managing partner of Williams Technology Group) and Jay Boisseau (CEO and co-founder of Vizias, a computing consultancy specializing in high performance computing, artificial intelligence, smart cities and more).
In addition to learning about what to expect from the tech sector in the coming year, if you attend the Austin Forum on January 8 you will be eligible to win a free badge for SXSW 2019 (where you can learn even more about what forward-thinking ideas will dictate the future).
The Austin Forum occurs at the gorgeous Austin Central Library (710 West Cesar Chavez). Doors open at 5:45 pm and the presentation begins at 6:15 pm. Post-presentation networking beings at around 7:30 pm. Admission is free, but RSVP here to reserve your spot!
