It’s only 2014, but the future is here. Last December, Thai journalists used drones to record protests, giving a birds-eye view of crowd sizes and police conduct. In June, a computer passed the Turing Test, convincing one-third of judges it was human. In August, Harvard researchers demonstrated 1,024 tiny robots working together without any central direction. And Google Glass may soon immerse us even more deeply in the digital world.

Please RSVP nowto join us for a creative and exploratory day-long discussion on what the future might look like, and how we in international development can help ensure it is free and democratic for all citizens of the world. We look forward to seeing you there.
