We have moved into an important phase in the history of human evolution where new technology radically transforms our lives every day. The global conversation is growing at an exponential rate, and the playing field is leveling. Where are we going and what will be the next revolution? Presenters from multiple disciplines from all walks of life will have 10-18 minutes to discuss where their respective fields of study will be going.
It’s all about the next unknown- “The Next X". The theme for TEDxDrexelU this year.
