Every year since 2016, Envision has hosted an international conference to inspire students and industry leaders to pursue the prudent advancement of emerging technologies. We believe that to ensure that the future is bright, one needs to consider in depth the human implications of technological developments. Developments regarding the COVID pandemic make these efforts more important than ever. That’s why we’re planning our first-ever virtual conference for April 2021.
Uncovering Our Blindspots
The Envision Conference is the only international student-run conference tackling challenging questions at the intersection between humanity and technology. Our next conference will take place virtually in Spring 2021. More details and application information will be available in December 2020.
