Transformative Science and Tech: The Innovator's Journey

A new generation of innovators is blurring the line between science fiction and fact. From innovations in technological wearables in fashion and healthcare, to helping solve climate change and infectious diseases, their research has the potential to fundamentally change how we live. Yet in an age of growing concern about data privacy and security, and faced with the enormous power of artificial intelligence, they must also weigh the broader social implications of their work. Join the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the Museum of Science and Industry for a conversation with some of the brightest young minds in science and technology, as they chart their journey from simple idea to transformative technology.

Council Young Professionals who attend the public program will also receive a FREE PASS to attend the Wearables Exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry.
