Tech Feast | Web3 - What are the opportunities of the next web?
'Tech Feast’ (see what we did there?) is the new 90-minute lunch event that will leave you smarter about technologies that are impacting (y)our world. In the first series, we’re going to be exploring AI, Web3 and augmented reality with a special guest, and because it's Fora, tasty food and drink will be provided to wash down the insights. There’s also a practical surprise at each one - the first one is getting your devices professionally cleaned.
Hosted by Paul Armstrong, Founder of TBD Conference and author of ‘Disruptive Technologies’, each Tech-fast has three parts, the welcome, the talk and the fun bit. Each is as sit back or lean-in as you’d like. Everyone will get a ‘paracetamol card’, these are to write down what makes your head hurt on. We urge you to ask the questions you’ve always wanted. We know not everyone wants to put their hands up too so there will be a question box too.
Web3 is a highly misunderstood area that needs to be understood
Web3 is the future of the web. Is it happening next week? No, but in the next few years, we’ll see more and more apps becoming decentralised and new ways of working that aren’t through the big companies we have today. It’s a huge shift, and one that is really important to not just understand but prepare for. Paul’s guest will be Lauren Ingram, CEO of Women of Web3.
Paul will be joined by Lauren Ingram / Women of Web3 - Lauren helps agencies and brands navigate the next iteration of the internet - or Web3 - as it takes shape and morphs. With decades of experience, Lauren is passionate about the intersection of creativity, technology and inclusion. Previously, Lauren ran Facebook's women's programme #SheMeansBusiness.
Season one of Tech Feast looks like this:
November 8 - Tuesday - Princelet Street - Artificial Intelligence - ‘When is Westworld here?’
November 9 - Wednesday - Borough - Augmented Reality - ‘How will AR evolve in the next 5 years?’
November 10 - Thursday - Folgate - Web3 ‘What are the opportunities of the next web?’ - Lauren Ingram (Women of Web3)
A specially curated table awaits you at each location to gain new insights, ask questions, make new connections, and a lot more besides. Every attendee gets a limited-edition gift for attending season one too!
Priority will be given to Fora residents, but all are welcome so bring a friend!
