This video series features short messages from people who will be attending True North, Communitech’s biggest conference, which will be held for the first time in May 2018. True North will bring together influencers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, developers, scientists, and game changers for crucial conversations about the future of tech as a force for good. From the impact of artificial intelligence to issues of diversity to the spread of “fake news,” leaders and innovators have become the focus of a conversation that has the potential to reshape our values and beliefs around tech’s role in humanity.
We asked him: “Why are you going to True North?”
