Digital regulation of everyday life. The everyday needs of our future human existence will be shaped by the invention, distribution and commercialization of new forms of machines, buildings, labor opportunities and energy. This conference meets at the intersection of law, business, technology and creative design. We invite industry leaders, university researchers, technologists, entrepreneurs, artists, lawyers and political advocates to join us in a far-ranging discussion.
