In October 2018, more than 40+ speakers and 400+ creative thinkers and doers gathered at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco to share ideas with a mission to bring awareness and work on solutions to the unintended consequences of technology at the UCOT2018.


WHO WE ARE

SUMMARY
Humanity is at a crossroads. The explosion of technology and its exponential advancements are reshaping what it means to be human. As technology continues to expand, its incredible imprint on our lives continues to deepen. Algorithmic lifestyle has become one of the most powerful arbiters in our lives. They, the technologies, make decisions about the news we read, who we vote for, the jobs we get, the people we meet, and the ads we see. Along with the benefits and victories provided by new technologies come consequences that are alarmingly detrimental to society and to our planet thats where our work comes in…

OUR VISION: 
A world where technology is designed to serve and/or complement humanity but not replace it.

WHAT WE DO
On the Backend, we bring together the people of all backgrounds to hold authentic discussions around exponential technology development and usage that may not be serving humanity's best interests. On the Front end, we have a unique model to provide support and seed funding to entrepreneurs designing and implementing solutions to the unintended negative consequences of technology.
