True North – Waterloo

2018-05-29 - 2018-05-31


Technology is inevitable. But what does it mean to be human in a tech-driven world? As we speed towards an unknown future, there are fundamental, difficult and sometimes scary issues that will divide and unite us.

True North is a three-day conversation about the intersection of humans and technology. It’s an opportunity to imagine and re-imagine the impact of technology — the good and the bad. To examine the values that guide technology innovation. And to redefine tech as a force for good. Join us for provocative and positive viewpoints, transformative workshops and vibrant social mash-ups.

Join the conversation about AI, fake news, diversity and other issues that make us afraid and/or hopeful.

What is True North?

True North is a ground-breaking international conference that will provide a forum for critical conversations about issues at the intersection of society and technology. It will focus on how to re-imagine and reaffirm tech as a force for good in the world.
