Traditional computing—a desktop or a laptop, connected to a network—is no longer the only way to get and use information electronically. Many people, particularly outside North America and Europe, will never experience it. Smartphones and tablets are outselling personal computers; and with the Internet of Things, the next wave in the mobile revolution, small computers and sensors are showing up in our clothes, glasses, watches, cars, and home appliances.

Nearly everything, it seems, is coming online.

We are at the beginning of the most significant technological transformation the world has ever seen. Information is becoming like electricity: invisible and ubiquitous.

Next June, in San Francisco, MIT Technology Review’s Digital Summit will examine the technologies and trends that are defining this new era. We’ll show the innovative people, companies, and research institutions at the heart of this digital revolution, providing a clear view of the opportunities and challenges of an increasingly connected world.

Program highlights will include an examination of:

  • Connected Cars
  • Connected Homes
  • Connected Commerce
  • Connected Cities
  • Connected Health

Please save the date, and make your plans to join us on June 9-10, 2014, in San Francisco. We’ll be unveiling more about the upcoming conference in the new year.  Watch here for more information and special registration offers.
