On Thursday 28 November, TechCityInsider and partners are bringing together some of London’s leading technology business minds at City University London, for Brainstorm.1, a half-day think-tank event to consider how technology can save the world.
Brainstorm.1 is led by Creative Technology Unlimited – a collective that conducts research and publishes papers that consider the impact of technology on the world’s commercial and social fabric. CTU associates work to understand current and future trends in technology, and how they can address big global issues.
We expect an inspiring day that brings together the tech community to look outwards and consider wider issues. And it will be an excellent networking opportunity in a structured but informal setting.
Guests on the day are being drawn largely from the TechCityInsider100 lists for 2012 and 2013.
Brainstorm.1 will consider how technology can positively influence and provide solutions to six major problems in:
* Media & Entertainment
Round-table teams led by experts in these six areas will identify the problems and work in a creative interactive environment to report on how technology can provide an opportunity for positive change.
The experts will deliver a five-minute filmed response to the questions, identifying the key problems and solutions within each area. A longer written paper on each issue will follow.
The output from the afternoon will be published by Creative Technology Unlimited, supported by written, audio and video editorial through TechCityInsider.net, Tech Talkfest radio, and associated partners’ media.
The day event will break directly into the TechCityInsider 100 Almanac launch cocktail, also taking place at City University. Daytime participants will be joined by new guests for the evening.
A new website, CreativeTechnologyUnlimited.org has been established to support the work of the new collective.
Initial Creative Technology Unlimited associates are:
