Event Description

Technological progress seems unstoppable in this vivid period of our lives: it gives us an almost unsettling feeling that we can't quite catch up with it! However, the progress and convergences of several technology trends brings many new opportunities to tackle old challenges and revolutionize the way we used to design, collaborate, make, and experience products and spaces.

Join Tatjana Dzambazova at our February Meetup as she guides through some of the key technology trends that are shaping the future of making things.

It’s the story of the age of infinite computing, big data, iot, generative design, additive manufacturing, contextual computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Come learn about the possibilities!
