The calendar is running out fast on 2014 and if you're like us, your head is probably swimming with big ideas, bold claims, and plain old information overload.
Want to find out what's really going on? Join Xconomy for Tech Agenda 2015, our in-depth look at the real forces driving change in technology, business, and society.
You'll hear some of the smartest people in tech break down the biggest trends and pressing problems for our country's most innovative industries, from commerce and robotics to media, education, investing, and more.
To cap off the day, we'll convene a panel of experts from four important fields to get their biggest, boldest predictions for the year ahead—which innovative companies, ideas, and movements will explode in 2015, and which ones will fizzle out.
