FRI 4/12: Salim Ismail: Technology and the Future of Miami
Fifteen years ago, we didn’t really use cell phones, social networks or even search engines. Do you dare to hear what the next fifteen years will bring? What will that mean for Miami?

Salim will describe the tools of this new future and the role that culture and cities will play in it, along with the societal disruptions we’ll have to face along with it and the opportunities for a city like Miami.
