Technology is fundamental to most every aspect of our society—so much so that we sometimes take for granted how transformative some current technologies are, focused more on "what’s next?" In 2019, we saw an explosion of interest in AI, a leveling off of blockchain, and the growth and promise of IoT still remains on the horizon.


What technologies and innovations are poised to amaze us in 2020--to change our lives, business, communities, and society? Which technologies will become mainstream, leading the way to still more new ideas and innovations? (Hints: cybersecurity, nanotechnology, and autonomous AI-powered things might be discussed… among others.)


In this annual Austin Forum tradition, two of Austin’s leading technology experts, Jay Boisseau and Jay Williams will separate the hype from reality and share their insights and expectations of the Top Technology Trends for 2020. Come learn what your company needs to know to adapt, innovate, compete, and contribute in 2020 and beyond.


*Admission to the Austin Forum is always free. Free street parking is available on Tuesdays!*




The Austin Forum accepts donations of used smartphones, computer and tablets at all our events to be repurposed for those in need. All devices will have a factory reset and be set up as new by the team at Austin Pathways’ nationally-recognized “Unlocking the Connection” initiative, which will connect every public housing resident with a digital device, digital literacy training, and a free or very low-cost internet connection. Your donated phone can change lives and help close Austin's digital divide, thanks to Austin Pathways.
