About Austin Forum on Technology & Society

The Austin Forum on Technology & Society is a nonprofit organization that explores the impact of technology on society and stimulates discussions, collaborations, and partnerships on new technology opportunities. Please support us with a donation to help us keep our programming free and open to all!


Thanks to you, our partners & sponsors, attendance at Austin Forum presentations and networking events is always free to our patrons.


Each month, we invite expert guest speakers to address cutting-edge technology topics and the impacts of those technologies on how we live, work, and relate to one another. Recent topics have included artificial intelligence, virtual reality, genetic editing, blockchain, cybersecurity, the role of social media in public discourse, and more.


Networking receptions follow the events to give all attendees and speakers the opportunity to connect and collaborate.


Founded in 2006, we've expanded our programming to include the Austin Forum Upload podcast, the Austin Forum Update blog, and more.


THANK YOU! We appreciate your support!
