The Transformative Technology Conference and Expo, also known as Transtech, will be taking place soon. The event is focussed on uses of technology to improve mental health and emotional wellbeing, and covers many areas including psychology, neuroscience and immersive technology. Time is running out for anyone who wants to get tickets before the price rise kicks in, however.
Transtech 2018 is the 4th time the event has been held, and the organisers have arranged a variety of keynote speeches as well as break-out discussions, workshops and 1:1 matching so creators and innovators can talk with the right people to move products forward.
One of the speakers as the event is Philip Rosedale, one of the main names behind Second Life and the founder of virtual reality (VR) content company High Fidelity. He will be hosting a workshop during the event called ‘Establishing A Global Challenge for Transformation’.
Also set to speak at the event is Nenea Reeves, CEO and co-founder of TRIPP, who will be speaking on the subject of building mood-altering VR experiences. A broad range of other speakers from medical, technical and scientific backgrounds will also be at the event, such as Dr Ben Goertzel who will be speaking about AI and Blockchain, or Dr Victor Stretcher, from the University of Michigan, who will be discussing performance, purpose and public health.
Transtech is scheduled to take place from 9th-10th November, at El Camino Real in Palo Alto, California. General Admission tickets cost $275 (USD) and are available until 15th October, 2018. After that date, Late Registration tickets are available for $350, which is available until 9th November. Alternatively, Investor/Sponsor tickets cost $1,000, and VIP tickets cost $599.
