Technology moves like lightning—so how will innovation affect our democracy and economy? Will it eliminate privacy? What tools will the military and police have, and who will control them? What are the big ideas, fantastic inventions and potentially sinister trends that will shape our future? Are we prepared for the opportunities, as well as the dangers, that await?

Join Daniel Franklin, Executive Editor of The Economist and editor of the new book Megatech: Technology in 2050, and the Brennan Center for Justice’s Faiza Patel for a spirited discussion about the warped speed of change ahead.
