How Technology is Turbocharging Everything 

A fast-paced overview of the explosive technologies that are shaping the future 

Speaker: Sophie Hackford 

Sophie is a futurist whose research entails meeting weirdos and troublemakers in off-the-beaten-track labs, makerspaces, garages around the globe - Shenzhen, Seoul, Detroit, Mumbai. As part of her research, she consults for exec teams and boards of large companies on understanding the explosive new technologies defining the new economy. Sophie is also co-founder of a data and AI company, 1715 Labs, spun out of the Astrophysics department at Oxford University with her academic collaborator. This follows a career building businesses for WIRED magazine, for Singularity University at the NASA Research Park in Silicon Valley, and prior to California, the interdisciplinary Oxford Martin School at Oxford University, where Sophie raised more than $120m of research investment.
