About this event

Featured Expert: Scott Hartley is a renowned speaker on tech, entrepreneurship, and innovation. An author and venture capitalist, he previously held positions at Google, Facebook, and Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, and served as a Presidential Innovation Fellow at the White House.

Overview: Hartley’s debut book, The Fuzzy and the Techie, busts the myth that only “techies” add value in our digital world. Join us for a scintillating discussion in which the author explores how today’s technological economy requires both the liberal arts and STEM education to innovate and truly thrive.

What You’ll Take Away:

  • Gain valuable insight into how we humanize technology in a broad range of fields.
  • Connect with a tech-industry thought leader, and network with fellow techies, fuzzies, and entrepreneurs.

Why It Matters: As tech takes over the world, it’s vital that we widen the aperture on who is essential to the field’s evolution. Hartley’s emphasis on the blending of “fuzzy” and “techie” helps us understand how to humanize our products, data, and algorithms, and use technology to solve some of society’s gravest challenges.
