HUMANS X TECH – Two day event
September 19, 2018 - September 20, 2018
September 19–20, 2018
What makes us human?
How does technology humanize or dehumanize us?
What can we do as individuals and communities to better prepare for the future?
Join us in Pittsburgh on September 19-21, 2018 for the sixth annual Thrival Festival, where we will continue to explore “Humans X Tech” — the evolving relationship between humans and technology — through this year’s theme: LIFE.CODE.
This unique conference experience will take place across multiple historic sites in Pittsburgh, drawing on the city’s strengths in automated systems, advanced manufacturing, robotics, and life sciences, to convene cross-sector dialogue around the impact that these fast-developing technolgies will have on society, business, and culture.
LIFE.CODE is produced by Ascender and presented by Peoples.
