How do we redefine humanity as one of the largest forces driving technology? How will these advances affect us? Where is it leading us and where do we draw the line? These are some of the questions that experts from different fields will try to answer at this year’s Emtech France organized by the MIT Technology Review in Toulouse on the 10th and 11th of October.

For the third consecutive year, Toulouse will be the only European city to host the Emtech conference featuring conferences, round tables, workshops, networking activities and Meet-Ups with startups. During the two-day event, the experts will present and discuss the latest innovations and future trends in the fields of neuroscience, robotics, artificial intelligence and food technology in order to understand the role of the human being as an actor within this technological transformation.

EmTech France is the largest and most prestigious conference on emerging technologies in Europe. It is also an opportunity for people of diverse backgrounds, expertise and interests to discuss and collaborate on some of the world’s greatest challenges and to explore the innovative technologies that can be used to confront them. This event brings together entrepreneurs, investors, leaders, technology journalists, private companies, public institutions and innovators.

EmTech France will welcome experts from around the world such as Eduardo Castello (Expert in robotics and researcher at the MIT Media Lab), Simon Thorpe (Research Director at CNRS, expert in Artificial Intelligence), Balder Onarheim (Founder of PlatoScience​ and Professor of Creativity at the University of Denmark) among others. The second day of the conference will be devoted to the world of entrepreneurship and business with a focus on the changes in the field of work and the growing importance and need of leaders for the future of companies.

During the conference, 10 startups will “pitch” their project at the “Start & Meet-UP” investment forum. The most convincing will receive the special mention of “Best Tech Startup of the Year” by a jury composed of experts in innovation and entrepreneurship, representatives from French Tech, MIT Technology Review and other partners.
