Ideas fuel agility.

In a world accelerated by automation, it is the ideas beyond the algorithm that change our world.

 World-renowned academics, innovators, and leaders on the front line of change gather annually at EmTech MIT to ask complex questions, have fearless discussions, and create tomorrow’s headlines. We explore breakthroughs in AI, climate tech, and computing to offer clear guidance on their impact on business and society.

Curated by the trusted editorial team at MIT Technology Review and backed by the technological expertise of MIT, EmTech delivers inspiration and action plans for leaders in a technology-driven world.

Ideas fuel progress. They are the driving force behind every breakthrough and the foundation upon which the future is built. Join us on the MIT campus September 30-October 1, 2024.
